    (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.

    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.

    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)

    "Pretty embarrassing stuff."

    Since your team lost four Super Bowls in a row, you should know all about the word embarassing you assclown.

    Hi and welcome to Patsfans. In the future, please refrain from posting things like the above. My irony detector alarm is extremely loud and obnoxious.

    Thank you.

    To the thousands of fans who booed multiple times

    Do you have any Idea what you did? You do NOT boo your starting quarterback, no matter how ****ty you think he did. You do NOT boo the defense for giving up a big play. And you CERTAINLY EFFING DO NOT BOO THE ENTIRE TEAM GOING INTO THE LOCKER ROOM AT THE HALF!!!!

    Do you know what you did? No, you did not lose the game. But if our guys were lacking the intensity needed for the game (as some players said in pg press conf), you certainly ruined any chance that our guys would get fired up at the half.

    There is a good reason why the call it the 12th man. Because the crowd has POWER. And you used your power to hurt your own guys. You kicked them when they were down. You HUMILIATED them on their own home field. Each and every one of you should go home and promptly throw yourselves down a flight of stairs. And then line up for one of these;

    I second that. It is easy to sit there in your pink hat cheering when your team is winning. Fans cheer them when they are down.

    It was kind of depressing to see everyone leaving early and even more so when the boos started flying. Having said that, it was a pretty horrid game so I guess it is what it is.

    I'd give my right arm to see a game at the Razor. Saw a bunch at Shaffer but that was many many moons (and rings) ago.
