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

No not at all.its sports dude.if you don't like it,don't read it.it's not like we're the only fans to do this.we're called the aints by other fanbases.in fact I'm pretty sure each NFL team has a so called "degrading name" that is called by other teams (usually the team that they're playing that week).it's fun and it's why we love the game so much.so again I suggest if you don't like it then don't read there forums or just don't watch football at all if it's that serious to you.not being mean or anything but that's kind of a dumb topic....

Huh?

Hating your team is a second job around here I think.

But hating your team, doesn't mean hating you.

Kumbayah, dude.

Im talking about Saints fans feeling embarrassed when other Saints fans use nicknames for other teams. Not complaining about it happening.

Its not embarrassing to me, I think its just dumb and unoriginal. Kind of like Breesus, PTCruiser, and G3.

When a failcons fan uses the term "cuz," it makes the failcons fan sound childish.

When a failcons fan uses the term "aints," that sounds childish because the failcons haven't won anything.

Using terms like the failcons, panties and sucs is something you do when your team has won something. I guess you wouldn't understand. It's not your fault. You seem ok.

Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. I agree with The Dude for the most part.

I think it is very immature for someone to alter the name in a derogatory way...and for those who really get irritated...

I don't really care for it, but I don't pay attention to when somebody else does it either.
