OK … I know I have made my opinion regarding the Stampeder fans and McMahon library quite clear in the past … But you have got to hear this …
Myself and 6 other Bomber fans have season tickets way up in section O. Yesterdays game was miserable weather to say the least (nevermind the fact i just arrived from Vegas not even 24 hours prior) … The cold weather, combined with the wind and constant rain made for a great atmosphere. A great number of rider fans in the stands outcheered the Stampeder fans most of the game … No question the rider fans outnumbered the stampeder fans by the end of the 3rd quarter. We had been standing most of the 2nd half already due to the fact there was literally NO ONE around us for at least 5-10 rows… Mid way in the fourth quarter it happened … A group of Stampeder fans sitting 6 rows up, and maybe 15 seats towards the center of the field (away from us) came down and very politely asked us to please sit down … We couldn’t believe it …
Now - at this time there must not have been more than 2,000 people in the stands … and i’d be willing to wager that 1,500 of them were drunken rider fans … Maybe 5-6 minutes left on the clock … the fourth and fifth stringers are giving it their all … we’re not obstructing view of the play … In the pouring rain. Please sit down??? If I sat down … How would all of my fans be able to view my dance performance? How would they be able to view my no-hands beer can chug? This just made no sense to any of us … (I probably don’t have to let you know that we didn’t sit down).
BRUTAL!!! The Stampeder fans are a pathetic bunch … really … and this example futrher underlines how bad it really is. Big respect to the Rider fans that made it out to the game … And negotiating an alliance with us Bomber fans to help in the fight against a common quiet enemy (The lowly McMahon Library “fans” of Calgary)
To whomever that group of Stamp fans were … all i can say is … Prepapre yourself - its going to be a long season of dealing with us now … SEASON TICKETS BABY!!!
