    #17 Jersey

    Although I am from Foxboro, I am now very concerned about the good people of Hartford.

    You have tagged people east and west, far and wide, yet, the insuance center of the universe was totally left out of the equation.

    Ok guys can someone clear things up for me regarding visiting fans.
    I have been to one Patriots game, that was in New England many moons ago.
    I wore my Doug Flutie Calgary Stampeders CFL jersey to the game, great conversation starter, saw no trouble.
    Now, I will finally get to see another game in Seattle this time taking my wife along with me to the game, she is by no means a fan of either the team or sport but would love to experience a game. I will be wearing my Pats Jersey, but my wife is a little worried. Now the reason is we are both English and know that visiting fans at soccer games back home do not sit in amongst home team fans. Now I'm a veteran of many "away days" following Manchester United around England and Europe and have been in some bad situations, so here in Canada being mixed in with other teams fans seemed strange at first but I have got used to it and love the banter with them. Would you say its good natured in Seattle (knowing there is always idiots where ever you go).

    Thanks
    Andy

    From all accounts I've heard, Seahawks fans are pretty civil folks. People in that part of the country tend to be nice folks by and large. I'll be going to that game too wearing Pats gear, so if anyone gives you any trouble, refer them to me. :singing:

    I haven't heard a lot of negative reports about Seattle fans. I'd be more worried if you were attending a Jets or Raiders game. You should be fine.

    LOL will do.
    Just really trying to figure out what the score is here with traveling fans.
    Seems a lot more civilized here then I read this report and wondered if this was the norm lol

    technically, if all of the people east and west of hartford are douchebags, the only non-douchebags are the people of the town of hartford, and all towns that:

    1.) Are smaller than Hartford (unless the town is a long skinny shape)
    and
    2.) Directly north or south of Hartford
    and
    3.) Hartford must overlap the East and West boundaries of these towns

    And, of course, anyone who's visited Hartford knows that the people there are all douchebags....

    What I want to know: what defines "douchebag" behavior, and is it often skewed by ethnic origin/racial demographics? Or, does mere geographic location provide reasonably definitive frame of reference? :confused:

    :eek:
    So it is now racist to point out the ethnicity of the group being asses to you?

    What a bunch of sensitive *****es we have in this country. I lived in San Antonio for 3 years and discovered that most of the older Mexicans (over 40) were the nicest people you would ever meet, but most of the mexicans in their 20's were the biggest punks you would ever meet. Does that make me a racist or just pointing out a factual observation? :confused:

    Seriously get over yourself and whatever ****ed up guilt/sensitivity you have.

    Is it racist when the Mexicans call a white person a gringo? Or a black to refer to a white guy as a white boy?

    We have different color skin :eek:, but sshh don't tell anyone! :cool:

    Dude stop apologizing for your city. Idiots live everywhere and honestly it happens every Sunday. I have been to multiple NFL stadiums and for the most part all of the trash talk has been good natured. Except for Cincy last year, I almost got into a fight with a guy (just to piss off the sensitives, a black guy :eek:) because he was a pompous ***** with a weak blatter. What can I say I can hold my own when it comes to taking a piss. :D

    But the man just couldn't except that and somehow along the way my brother became my girlfriend according to this STRAIGHT BLACK MAN!

    What a racist bigot this straight black male was. It made me want to slap him right across the face!


    :rofl:

    True story!

    I'll be at the Bungals/Steelers game tomorrow (corporate seats with guys from work). I'll be sure to look your friend up and tell him you said hello ;)

    Should be interesting as half of the 8 guys are Steelers fans and will be decked out in team colors.

    From what I have heard about the Soccer games overseas our worst stadiums are not even close to as bad. (worst probably being Raiders or a Sox Yanks game)
