2018 was not originally a rebuild year for the Giants but it turned into one when Eli couldn't play any longer. This is the first true rebuild year. They have been dumping bad contracts the past two offseasons. Next year, they can have close to 70 million in cap space to work with in total if they release a few players here and there. They have the draw of the big city, a young QB to build around, and a ton of money to play with. If they suck next year, I'm all for calling Gettleman a bad GM.
It's some straight-up bull$hit for people on this board to call out anyone who actually goes to the game. PSL owners have to pay for these tickets before the season starts. There are plenty of dedicated fans who go to the games, rain or shine. Of course there are some non-hardcore fans there. It was a beautiful afternoon punctuated by an awful football game. At some point, as a fan who paid to go the game, you're allowed to have fun whether the team is winning or not. Some people just leave the stands- others make the best of it while staying. What they do after they've spent their money to be there is nobody else's business.
Nobody's calling some of the these posters out who probably went to rub one out in the putrid 2nd half. And I wouldn't blame them, either. The game sucked- you make the best of it.
It doesn't mean you're happy with what happened or don't want changes to come- I for one am not at all happy. At some point in life, though, it's absurd to think someone else should be forced to wallow in misery b/c you're unhappy with the way a ballgame is going.
It really is some first-rate entitlement by some on this board to question people who actually support the team by going to the games.
You want to start with the issues of the fanbase, start there. If you retort by saying the tickets are too expensive, etc., then that's an acceptable stance. But it doesn't give you any right to judge people who are willing to spend their hard-earned money.
Also, after 14 seasons of having PSL's, I don't begrudge anyone for what they do with their seats. It's a big investment, and it's easy for someone on a message board to have an opinion when they have no skin in the game.
I don't sell my seats, but I did boo yesterday at that performance, and I don't blame anyone who left early. There was a good crowd there yesterday to help support the team in a pivotal game, and the Panthers didn't show up.
That has absolutely nothing to do with the fans.
What's the most embarrassing to me is that people make these groundless accusations. You want the fanbase to be better, start with thinking twice before posting an awful thread like this.
