    (this is a similar thread to the one titled "to the four guys who sat in front of me............which by the way i made fun of)

    there is no need to stadn and scream and yell and cheer for your team when it is up by 30 pts....they do not need it

    however, when your team is down by 30 pts, then you DO, you have to do everything, you have to cheer, to yell, to jump, to stomp, to stand

    what you do NOT do is sit down, put your under your head, and support it that way

    what you do NOT do is text, while your team is down like that

    shame on you

    Those shots of the fans walking out in droves in the 3rd were sad.

    +1, the shots they showed of the crowd were pretty depressing.

    The looks on the fans faces during the first round of crowd shots pretty much told the story; stunned to be losing to a sh!t azz team, Brady or no Brady.

    On a brighter note, they showed a blonde wearing sunglasses and a white shirt with an amazing rack, so all is not lost............

    well booing is one thing. but it doesnt take much for the gillete crowd to boo. two 3 and outs and down by 3-0 or 6-0 will get boos of them

    SO why don't a few of you guys actually get some tickets and come to the games.......then we'll see.

    It's real easy to get up at noon, drink some beer and criticize the fans that actually go to the games, week in and week out.

    I may never get to see a game live or hobnob with a player or any of that cool stuff, but I was here before the FWF and I'll be here if/when they're gone...

    Please, the team (outside of Hobbs and maybe Gaff) and the coaches didn't show up to play hard, why should you expect the fans to? I don't disagree in principle but you really ought to point your ire at the right people; 43 guys out of 45 showed up and played like someone replaced their Folgers with Sanka.

    Same here-where we were it was fine-all things considered. Too bad Goodell outlawed swearing....:cool:

    I think Brown's run was when a lot of people started leaving too. In their minds it was Game Over (which it pretty much was). We didn't leave, but the way that team played today I really wasn't all that shocked that a lot of people did leave. There's always some that duck out early if the game's a blowout situation but today looked like a mass walk-out. All I know is people looked pretty disgusted. The guy who sits near us brought his 2 boys today even though apparently Friday he got the news that he and many others in his company were getting laid off. Money's tight and no doubt there's more than a few who were pretty ticked that they paid to see their team get azz-whipped and play without any heart, which is even worse.

    Not as sad as the shots of the Patriots "game". I wouldn't have wasted any more of my afternoon watching that drivel either.

    No Jersey Selected

    That's not really fair. If most of us could afford the time and/or money, we would be there.

    I live in south Jersey and am in the military. I can't really shell out $200 a ticket 8 times a year, plus $60 for gas and tolls each way. Not to mention the 12 hour round trip.

    The fans that go to the games should realize how lucky they are and show support for the team they are paying all that money to see. (I am not saying you don't, FWIW)
