Today must be dumb thread day so I thought I would add to it. I've seen the word "homer' used in a post today. This word seems to be used a lot in the past several weeks. Usually it comes up when someone wants to take a shot at another poster who is being too positive about the team. I looked it up in a few dictionaries and there is no definition in the way it is used on this board. Now, I consider myself to be a 'homer" when it comes to the Patriots. My definition is: Someone who loves their team, is loyal to the team, will give the team the benefit of the doubt in most cases becasue they have earned it. However, if a player, coach, or management person does something that is wrong, makes a bad play or call, I'll criticize them for it. But, I'm not looking for things just to be critical. What is your definition of the word "homer' as it applies to fans? I would love to hear from the ones who use it on this board to find out what exactly they mean.
