Sometimes I hate the NFL

29 posts in this topic

One week, we're beating the Saints. Heading for the top of the division, league, etc.

Cam Newton is the perfect player. He's the MVP. He's ours. He's ours forever. He'll be here forever. Racking up swag, MVP's, Lombardi's.

Steve Smith tells us how "Things are different 'here' now".

Chud seems brilliant.

A week later everything is the opposite. Steve Smith is a Prick. Cam newton is leaving town when his rookie deal expires. He's a cancer. The local paper pokes fun at him. The coaching staff is on the verge of losing the team.

I mean I swear I wish I didn't love the NFL sometimes. It honestly makes me kind of hate it when things are going like this. People are rough on baseball, but I follow it day in, day out.... it's not like this with players, teams, managers. They get more equity and buy a lot more time when they do well..... not so much hate and vitriol flying around.

It's not just Carolina. It's the NFL. Happens in every city, every fan base. One loss and Cowboy fans are wanting to hang Romo. One loss and Pats fans are saying Brady has lost it. One loss and it's time to fire whoever is coaching that dumpster fire in Cleveland.

Anyone ever get tired of the damn roller coaster of this sport?

I don't mean to be a baby. I'm actually watching old NFL Primetime Highlights on YouTube

Tell me THOSE DON'T BRING BACK MEMORIES!!!!!

And I think back to when I was a kid. God the nfl was fun. All the over coverage brought on by twitter and everything else just kind of ruins the damn game. I miss NFL Primetime. I miss when QB's weren't judged just by their last week.

We're talking about running a record setting QB out of town.... he is 23. What the fug is the football world coming to? Hate it.

I hear ya, mayne.

You can get off the roller coaster if you want to, though. You could get off the message boards and stop listening to sports talk radio and watching ESPN/NFLN. Then, your happiness or misery doesn't last much longer than a few hours post game.

Fewer games magnifies their importance.

Exactly. You're comparing apples to oranges here in the OP. baseball has 182 games. Football has 16

I do understand what you're saying, but you can't do what you just did. You'll just end up getting more frustrated. The best way to get over last week is to look forward to the next week. It's early and we still have hope. Until that's completely gone and it's a mathematical uncertainty I will continue to believe that we are going to the playoffs... Where anything can and will happen

consistently winning a majority of games helps mollify the losses a little.

sucking ass as a franchise with no hope mollifies nearly all the losses.

having a franchise QB and losing a majority of games anyway is heartbreaking and very difficult to mollify.

People were stupid to get so excited over beating the Saints. They have played absolutely terrible this year, but were still in the game.

    • yeah the inferiority complex is real. try pushing back at all, in any context, and see how far that gets you. there's one cop in wilmington who has basically stalked someone im close to because she argued with him during their first encounter (she was texting at a stoplight and he gave her a ticket for texting while driving that was of course instantly thrown out in court). he has pulled her over multiple times for "traffic violations", none of which have stuck, just for the chance to yell at her until she cried (i was in the passenger seat for one of these instances of harassment and it was as bad as you think). plenty of people go into law enforcement because they are instantly afforded a level of respect from the public that they could never earn on their own, and they'll be damned if someone doesn't treat them like a superhero instead of the fat, uninteresting c-students that they often are but don't take my anecdotes for it, just look at how childish and petty police unions can be. remember when those overgrown babies literally turned their backs on de blasio? lol. they're not exactly the best and the brightest
