I was talking criticism of the behavior of PSL holders.

I listen to it every year.

My message is simple. Don't like the behavior at the stadium. Don't like the 'other team taking over'. Buy tickets.

I suspect the 2013 tickets will be plentiful and cheap.

I didn't care to watch the game yesterday.
Turned tv on in the 2nd QT and noticed we looked different. Finally realized in God's earth we were wearing all black unis. Happiest moment ever. Cheered for a good 10 min then turned tv off.

I dnt give a damn anymore. I'm playing for a Top5 pick to land a Star or Hankins.

It can get into your blood for sure. I always get excited come gameday. I love the game, and rooting for the home team just makes it better.

It is great to be able to give 3 hours a week to support my team. Get some relief from the wife. And just enjoy watching the home team play football,

I have no problem with fans derbing on the way things transpire. It is the ones that say they are done, could care less, or just plain want to quit watching. They ain't foolin' anyone. They are still gonna watch. Still gonna bitch. And probably still get upset when they cannot convince others to follow.

You can't always get what you want. But try telling that to a disgruntled Panther fan.

Having a life and a family can make watching a lot more difficult. Gotta give props to fans that can squeeze the game into the schedule. My brother in law DVRs the games and still rarely gets to watch it. Of course he has 2 girls and a wife that hates sports. So in a way, he chose his own fate. But I can empathise for him, and any father for that matter.

wouldn't it be easier for PSL owners to criticize such a shitty product due to their financial backing?


Some of us realize that being a fan and supporting our team doesn't we are guaranteed success on the field. It's a chance we take, because we're fans. If we get to the point where the enjoyment of being a fan is outweighed by the pain of losing and everything else, then we bail. Won't happen with me, but I know it has and will with others.

Hey, I grew up being a Gamecocks fan. Do you think I was there all these years (all my 57 years) because we were winners?

My friend recently recounted a story about my dad, the biggest Carolina fan there ever was. My friend was very upset over the Gamecocks' loss and was showing it at the after-game tailgate. Dad took my friend aside and said, "I've been coming to Carolina games since 1964. If I had been coming only to see us win, I would have stopped coming in 1965. Here ... have a drink."

My friend says that's when it solidified for him that being a fan is more than being a fan when the team is up.

I think we all can agree anyone who dedicates the posts and time on an internet forum understands fandom and doesn't need educated on something as simple as success isn't guaranteed.. I mean, we all know that. It's the most fundamental aspect of being a fan..

College football in this situation is a completely different animal if someone is supporting their alumni.. or maybe they didn't go to that school, but college football isn't the same type of business when academics prevail (or so they say) over wins and losses.

NFL is strictly business...

with that said, there is no sensationalizing 3 winning season in what is now 18 years? At some point, there comes a time when ownership needs to understand that the fans will hold them to a higher standard after such mediocrity.. or else I truly feel you and I are doing a disservice to ourselves as fans...

as has been mentioned many times in this thread, no one once has said they are jumping ship or burning all of their team paraphernalia..

This is 2012 and the NFL is making more money than ever. There is no room for boasting fandom because one person is willing to grin, bear and take it because they are cool with drinking away their sorrows.

Everyone and their brother/sister/mother understands success isn't guaranteed. That isn't some new revelation coming down to free us all of our frustration. The masses can be heard, have been heard, and will only get louder if this carries on into the future..

That, to me, is as important to uphold as a true fan.. Unless you do not care about the team's success, then none of this matters, and people can carry on spending hundreds to 10's of thousands of dollars on a poor quality investment..

I most definitely do care about the team's success.

I'm curious as to what ya expected to see.

Fox is a good coach.
He has good coaches beneath him.
The denver defense practiced against The Golden Calf of Bristol all last season. Great advantage when facing any mobile qb.

Denver is arguably one of the best teams in the league. Yet we had fans expecting us to go toe to toe with them?

Yeah, I can see why you need to be doing other things on Sundays.
