You want some input?

Well ..... the answer is NO. Doesn't bother in any way. At sometimes I laugh, not a lot, but I do.

So, do you guys think it's embarrassing when your fellow fans use terms like:
FailClowns, Falclowns, FailCants etc...

I've never been a fan of changing a teams name and converting it to something that just flat out sounds stupid. To me, personally, it just sounds childish and degrades anything that person posts.

That's just me personally speaking. Just wanna get some input.
Feel free to bash me or whatever, cuz I'm a Falcons fan and all, but I honestly just want your input. Not that it matters :P
you forgot cantlanta , I like that one

I think it sounds dumb when you change a teams name...those names don't take any creativity

If ppl spice it up a little then I'm all for it but it does get annoying knowing 40+ year old dudes around the country can't come up with a better name than a little kid

I think everyone, minus Saints fans, thought it was cool to refer to N.O. as the 'Aints. I don't change names but if others want to wtf? If it didn't bother you, you wouldn't have posted here. And Canton BabaBooey to you(ok childish response).

No, their fans talk smack about us, we talk smack about them, it's a rivalry and that is a part of it. It's just like the bragging right this year is ours in the NFC South and as much as I hate to have to admit last year was the Clowns. See it's all in fun!!!!!

I think it can be funny and amusing it if is used once in awhile and not all the time. I mean a joke gets old.

Otherwise... I agree I think its stupid. And its not sports name calling?

After awhile its as gay as the power rankings.

I've not done it personally, nor do I hold it against anyone for doing it, however, I understand the original poster's point.

On any given Sunday we can be fed (made to eat) our own words!

I don't care much for it either. It sounds middle-schoolish to me.

A minimum of 2 points off the credibility scale when I see it.

Childish? Yeah, your point? Football is a game. Is it really supposed to be enjoyed the same way we enjoy a PowerPoint on the next Quarter's projected sales? Even though the No Fun League seems to think the answer to that question should be yes, I must answer this question with another. Really? Humor and fun have been close companions since the dawn of humankind and plays on words have been one of the mainstays of humor since we communicated with grunts, clicks and whistles. Donkeys, Dalless, Cleveland Clowns, Atlanta Clowns (compliments actually as clowns are scary), Aints, Bungles, etc... it's all fun and funny. You have my sympathies if you find no amusement in childishness as you've truly lost an important part of yourself.
