Re: 2011 Saints @ 49ers - The Sequel

I'm fine if we compete and lose. First 2 games, first Atlanta game, loss at end of season with title on the line at Tampa. What I'm not fine with is playing scared. The offensive line and Ingram showed up in the first half. The rest of the O including Drew played scared and that I refused to watch. First Saints game I have tuned out of in my life. The last time I saw us play that way was when the Ravens dominated us in 07 or 08. Fight and lose no problem. Play like a chicken and that's a huge problem.

I'm confused. Are you saying we played scared during the 24 point second half comeback yesterday?

Re: 2011 Saints @ 49ers - The Sequel

It felt very much like San Fran 2011. In some ways it was worse, in some ways better. If you were just watching as a fan of the NFL, wow what a game. But hey, as bad as this one stings, who'd have thought we'd even have taken a lead (oh wait, that kind of makes it worse).

I smashed my Cox remote. Embarrassing, yes. I couldn't change the channel after the game, and went to Cox today w/ my tail tucked between my legs. But then I think about how Drew must feel (Happy Birthday, by the way), or How Marcus Williams must feel. Or better yet, how Atlanta must feel (At least yesterday's game wasn't the SB).

It felt like my g/f dumped me last night and I woke up this morning reminded that it wasn't a bad dream. I imagine Vikings fans woke up feeling like they had won the lottery. It's what we love about sports.

The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat.

You clearly missed the point of "checking out". That loss didn't hurt, because I don't have any personal stake. I will not watch, or buy anything NFL related that would give them ratings or money. That's what a boycott is. If some want to go all the way and not even view box scores, highlights, or articles about anything to do with the NFL, that's fine. I choose to check in on scores and stories because I still read this board. I still like people here and I know it means something to them. My curiosity makes me check the box scores and highlights.

If I want to offer an opinion, that's my business. My problem with you, is the same problem I have with a couple of others who are often going around telling people to go away, or that they aren't fans, because they aren't pumping sunshine. You made a comment to me earlier about some fans being passionate. You're right, they are. So why do you jump on them? And if you are wondering why it "matters" to me, it's because while I was still supporting the team I got the same treatment.

It's an elitist "I'm better than you" attitude that gets under my skin. Perhaps I shouldn't let it. But I do. Because you can disagree with someone without telling them off. That sort of thing is not how adults speak to each other. You've taken my opinions which were directed at no one but the league, and treated them as an attack on the entire board. I've made a point of not bringing up who is or is not boycotting.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

I can take losing. It's losing against all odds that gets to me.
