"this was originally directed at the topic "Riders have only one gear backwards" where people were saying how all rider fans loved nealon at the start and blah blah blah
hey hey hey. Wait one minute here. I was here at the start of the season too. And I distinctively remember a lot of Rider fans saying that they think that Greene is a capable QB, but not all of them said that they would take him over Burris. There was a lot of Rider fans pissed off at Burris, me included, because he left our team in a cowardly way. But my opinion, and the opinion of most of the Rider fans I know (I know a lot more then the 30 or so Rider fans that post so this would be a better representation of what Rider fans really think) was that Burris was a good QB, and that we would rather have him. We also defended Greene. yes, but really we didn't have a choice, that was who we were stuck with. The Rider fans are not the people who make the decisions in the Rider organization. We are just the ones who are relied upon to defend those decisions, and we usually do it quite faithfully.
Of course there were those few who did say they wanted Nealon, and they hated Burris, but by my recolection, those were the minority not the majority of the posters.
I guess I am just getting sick of all of you guys rejoicing in our misery, and saying I told you so all the time. Get over it, haven't you ever made a mistake before.
I am quit fine with people making Valid points against the Riders, but come on, some of it is just plain discrimination. There is a real anti-rider sentiment to a lot of the posts, and while I really do not like the Esks, When we beat them last year in the west semis, I and almost all Rider fans did not constantly stick their faces in the mud, and say: "And you guys thought you were so great, hahaha, you are not"
This post sounds a lot more bitter then what it is intended, but seriously, oher then saskargo, I expect better from most of you.
That being said let the trash talk continue
Go Riders Go
I bleed Green
