Where we all all armchair quarterbacks, coaches, managers, and towel boys.
I love reading comments from people who have suggestive ideas on how to show our discontent for the team.
I also find the "You're not a real fan" responses to these opinions and ideas.
Personally, I agree with most of the negatives, but at the same time being negative does not make you any less a fan.
What's wrong with the team? We're bad. Bottom line. We have great players that can do great things but nobody is.
What's the excuse? There is none.
Postive AND Negative comments, to me, show that the fans are passionate about this team and that's what I like.
Think of your partner; Wife, Husband, Girlfriend, Boyfriend, soulmate, whatever..
There's no one else more perfect for you.
Have they NEVER pissed you off in anyway shape or form?
Are they always right? Do you always smile and nod and say thanks for doing something that you just don't like or agree with?
Hmmm.. I doubt it. Because you're angry or just plain pissed-off doesn't mean they still don't mean everything to you. It's human response and nature.
Point being, I love seeing people getting so worked up about this team. We aren't "fickle" or "good-time only" fans.
It's ok to say, "Damn this is terrible". What I don't think is right, is for others to say I'm not a "real" fan because I'm negative.
If we go 2 and 16 I'll still support them, cheer them, and be there next season to do it again.
As for the team, well, I guess the guys just need to find the "it" that takes them from bad to good.
