2020 Weekly NFL Picks Winner
I've come unhinged more than a few times in the gameday thread. Pretty sure I posted "10-6" towards the end of the game. I've posted some really stupid stuff. It's just passion, man.
...But somebody being overly passionate, or "whiny" makes them a bandwagon fan? Naw.
Oh right .....because what you are describing NEVER happens on the Steelers board when your team BARELY wins many of their games right?!
Just so you know ...the steeler game day threads are filled with rational, positive minded, upbeat folks with no signs of negativity, stress, or anger.....it’s a wonderful place I am sure.....Please don’t judge us by our game day threads... that’s like our worst possible example of who we are! It’s 20% interested fans, 30% trolls, and 50% people just using the thread as an outlet for all of their negative thoughts and feelings during the game.
I'm not too proud to admit,
I've been a fan since the late 80s/ early 90s. I've come unhinged more than a few times in the gameday thread. Pretty sure I posted "10-6" towards the end of the game. I've posted some really stupid stuff. It's just passion, man. It short circuits the brain. That's how most Boston sports fans are wired. If anything, that angst has it's roots in the Red Sox futility, the Bruins being a joke for decades with one of the worst owners in pro sports history, the Celtics sucking for 21 years and the Patriots being a joke for most of their existence until the mid 90s. I can still remember a kickoff return in 1991 because it was the highlight of the year. Back then, you would watch the Pats and you weren't even rooting for a win. You just wanted to see some exciting plays. 12 wins in my young life as a Pats fan was incomprehensible, let alone getting to a Superbowl. I actually rooted for the Giants when it came to the playoffs. Was a big LT fan. Was excited when we signed Meggett. Makes me sick to think about now.
So I think it's just passion, more than people being pinkhats. Boston fans are unlike any other in sports. It's always been like this. I have a real problem with people telling someone how to be a fan, or what a "real fan" is. Wait what gives them the authority to decide that? It a ridiculous authority to claim to have. Everyone cheers in their own way. Doesn't make them any better or worse a fan than anyone else. I mean, if you are one of the jackasses that claims to be a Sox fan and then trashes David Ortiz, that's one thing. You are a fraud. But somebody being overly passionate, or "whiny" makes them a bandwagon fan? Naw.
He got you mfers there.
You can have all the faith in Brady you want but it won't matter if he doesn't see the field again because the D couldn't make a 3rd down stopGDT is pathetic...don't give me this passion excuse. After all Brady and this team has done, to not have a little faith down by only 1 score is beyond pitiful.
