View Full Version : What annoys you about the fans of other NFL teams

This is not about the organization itself, but about the fans specifically. Probably try to refrain from personal insults. Obviously its not every fan that fits the specific stereotype.

What annoys you about each NFL team's fans( if anything). It can be from personal experience, in general, or from what you've encountered on SWDC.

* for the record, just because something annoys you dosen't mean the fans are wrong to hold that particular opinion.

Bills- I like the Bills a bit so not too much I can think of.

Dolphins-idk. I get tired about hearing about the wild cat I suppose.

New England-Obviously I get very annoyed with spygate apologists. You cheated and go caught. Get over it.

Jets- Their complaining fans at the draft annoy me.

Ravens- meh, maybe their pride of the defense.

Bengals-When they complain about Palmers ACL incident. **** happens

Browns- Hard to hate on the browns, but i once saw someone say cribbs was better than hester, which is stupid.

Steelers- When they defend Palmers ACL incident. **** happens. Also, when some overrate big ben in general and his hand in their success.

Texans- Hmm... they have fans? jk

Colts- Their love for Manning and his long sleeves. Thinking that losing Dungy and co. will not be important.

Jags- Fans from California who are obsessed w them ;). Hearing about MJD.

Titans- It easily used to be the way some defended Vince Young. Maybe some still do?

Broncos- Used to be their Cutler love. now they're all depressed emos in denial. :)

Cheifs- How some are too proud of how loud arrowhead is? I'm sure many of their fans think dry rub ribs are better, which is false.

Raiders- I feel for most of them. I guess i get annoyed with those who think too much of Jamarcus.

Chargers- Those who defend Merriman and like his stupid dance.

Cowboys- I think it was bazaa who did a good bit on " Americas team". What a load of crap. Some tend to live in the glory years.

Giants- In my opinion some of the worst. Their outward man crush on their Dline and RBs. Their man crush on their downy QB/ Super bowl run.

Eagles- Those who chant E-A-G-L-E-S out loud. Some of their fans can be dickweeds in general.

Redskins-Hmm...idk maybe those who love Dan too much?

Bears- Those who live back in 85. Those who think Cutler is the next
Favre/Montana. Overrated Forte. They say Wisconsin sucks but invade it for vacation.

Lions- Maybe some complain too much about sucking, but can you blame them?

Packers- Mmm.. Those who turned on Favre. It's fine and dandy to not like the guy much anymore, but some of the stuff I hear said about Favre is bs. Those who hate Ted Thompson and know nothing about the NFL/free agency/ drafting.
I sometimes get annoyed with Packer fans who place too much value on what the franchise has done in the past.
Those who were Favre fans, not Packer fans

Vikings- Probably the worst ( outside of this board which actually has good Viking fans). Where to start.... Those who criticized Favre for 15 years and now want him on their side.
Those who think the Packers/Viking rivalry is bigger than Packers/Bears. Those that make the horn call themsleves in the bar after a score or sing the Skoal song.

Falcons- Think Roddy White is better than Greg Jennings ( personal vendetta).The team made the playoffs, not Ryan.

Panthers- The Steve Smith love perhaps, I don't like him.

Saints- Hmm...Probably something to do with Reggie Bush or Colston. Idk.

Bucs- Fans that i have heard blame the shortcoming solely on John Gruden.

Cards- I get tired of hearing about their wide receivers.

Rams- The term " fastest show on turf" being used.

San Francisco- Nothing really. Thanks for Rodgers btw. ;)

Seahawks- nothing terrible annoys me but like the chiefs I don't like hearing about how loud their stadium is all the time.

Funny, because i happen to think that Packers fans are the worst... especially while living in Wisconsin! Don't get me wrong, i find many Vikings fans almost as bad as most Packers fans.

I just hate blind homerism in general. Fans of any team, including the Vikings, that think that their squad can do no wrong and refuse to listen to reason.

Do i live and die with the Vikings? Hell yeah! Do they always do the right thing? Hell no! I still love 'em, though.

I'll certainly admit that the majority of Cowboy fans know absolutely nothing about the game and tend to be blind and clueless. We dont quite have fair weather fans exactly, but a slew of idiots who just latched on to them in the early to mid 90's. I cant stand conversing w/ most of them...luckily, luckily, luckily, we have some good ones on here. Most of the time when I come into contact w/ another Cowboys "fan" in the real world. I just keep my mouth shuth (gritting my teeth) and nod politely in agreement because, the words and fallacies coming from their mouths isnt even worth getting all riled up for.

The same can be said in most instances talking to the plethera of Giants and Eagles fans in my area. And dont get me started on draft talk. haha.

It's not meant to be an insult. Just something that can become annoying. When I see "Justin Tuck, Osi, are the best evaaa!!" on here it gets a bit annoying. Every team has fans that make aspects of their team annoying. It's only an observation.

Fine, but I'm gonna state everything I hate not only about the fans but the whole organization. You've been warned!

1.) Most of them still think Favre is the greatest player ever.
2.) Favre spelling his name as Favre and not at Farve just pisses the **** out of me.
3.) All of you think Aaron Rodgers is the second coming of Favre
4.) Cheese isn't all that great. Some of it is and who doesn't like Mac and cheese or nachos, etc... but ****, who likes to sit down and eat cheese by itself? And are cheese heads supposed to be cool?
5.) Is a team named the packers suppossed to be scary? Seriously, naming a team after the packing industry? At least brewers do something cool and extremely important.
6.) George Halas >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Vince Lombardi
7.) They think they're better than the Bears.

Oh man, I love to hate the Packers... funnest two games of the year.

I am not insulted I just don't get the point in saying giants fans are one of the worst cause they like there players at positions where they have some of the better players or saying we shouldn't like the fact we had a super bowl run. If I was insulted I would have said something about how u called Eli a "downy" I didn't cause mainly idk what "Downy "meant or need to get into another Eli argument on here.

Oh my god. SO ANNOYING! If you say anything bad about them the response is always "How many rings do the Eagles have?". 0 the same as you in the past decade. Anyone care to tell me how many times the Cowboys have been in a Suberbowl or NFC Championship in the last 10 years? That is right None. Compared to 5 NFC Championship games and 1 superbowl by the Eagles. GTFO and don't come back until you're relevant again.

God I hate the Cowboys. Week 17 was amazing, 44-6.

Seeing how Titletown couldn't come up for one for the Bills I have one. I know a couple of Bills fans around here that they think because Terrell Owens they will automatically get into the playoffs and even some think super bowl.

Packer Fans - I see the packers being the hardest fans to talk to. They will not agree with anything if it comes to the NFC North. The Packers are always the better team and its just not fun. That is the packer fans I have encountered. I don't have a problem with the packer fans on here.

I agree entirely with that. I can't stand talking to packers fans about football particularly the NFC North, as it always comes back to the Packers and how they are somehow better or whatever. I remember last year about this time I had several Packers fans telling me that Ryan Grant was going to be better than AD, and I'd just ignore it, but at the end of the season I made sure to rub that one in a bit. I do agree that the Packers fans on here are fine and I have no problem with them as they are sensical.

Yep, I also can't stand the cowboys fans living in Pennsylvania with absolutely no roots in or around Texas who also happen to be Yankee fans. It's obvious they are front-runners but they still deny it. They also often have a ****** holier-than-thou attitude about sports.

Also Giants fans who think Domenik Hixon has more upside than DeSean Jackson.

I think that you guys both probably dislike Packer fans, but I think what you're getting at here is that you dislike ignorant fans, not matter the team they associate with.

I think that would be a consensus among almost everyone on here.

You know you're a frontrunner when you're a fan of two or more of the following teams:

Cowboys, Lakers, Yankees and Redwings (maybe someone else but from my limited knowledge the Redwings are the juggernaut).

That's probably true, but from my experiences, Packer fans tend to be more ignorant. It also really pisses me off when they bring up the argument that we've won three superbowls, and the Vikings haven't won any and blah blah blah. I pretty much tune everything else out once I hear that.

No, you didn't, but it just pisses me off when I hear that argument, especially when you're having a good discussion about the teams and then BAM!

That list looks pretty good, I didn't check it over for accuracy, but I don't see any glaring omissions or anything. So that is 15 out of 32 teams that haven't won it.

I'll give this a try:

49ers - Nothing really, which is commendable because they could live in the past.

Rams - Again, nothing, though I really dislike Marshall Faulk.

Seahawks - Shaun Alexander stole an MVP from Peyton Manning and you know it.

Cardinals - Larry Fitzgerald is not the greatest WR ever.

Eagles - Having a ticket does not give you the right to turn into a belligerent criminal.

Giants - Your backup defense would not be top 10 in the NFL, saying such is almost as ridiculous as...

Cowboys - Every player you have is not a Pro Bowler and/or All-Pro, you do not have the best secondary of all-time, Tony Romo is not the MVP...and this is after a season in which your team missed the playoffs, I wonder what would happen if they were actually good.

Redskins - Used to be Sean Taylor, who I thought was overrated. Now, nothing really.

Vikings - Nothing really.

Packers - Everything Brett Favre.

Bears - I'm a Purdue fan. Kyle Orton is one of my favorite players that I have ever seen play at Purdue. You would not have won the Super Bowl with Kyle Orton as your starting QB. Rex was starting for a reason, and it wasn't because he was the second best QB on your team at the time. After you shattered his confidence, sure, but not at the time.

Lions - I have nothing against the fan base, I actually kind of feel sorry for them and really respect them, but I hate the team for stealing Cliff Avril.

Saints - Nothing really, go Brees.

Bucs - Nothing really, thanks for Dungy.

Falcons - Since they've disowned Vick, nothing.

Panthers - Again nothing.

Chargers - Rivers is an arrogant douchebag, please admit as much.

Broncos - Jay Cutler is a big loss, Kyle Orton is not a great QB, and I'm one of his biggest fans.

Chiefs - Nothing really.

Raiders - See Eagles.

Bills - They overrate Lynch a little.

Dolphins - Used to be really bad, now not so much.

Patriots - Quit defending Spygate, quit living in 2001-2004, and quit thinking your team is the best at everything.

Jets - You're way too excited about a rookie QB and Namath is overrated.

Ravens - The Colts moved before most of the people on this board were born, get over it.

Steelers - The Steelers are not the best at everything. For the most part, you're almost as bad as Cowboys fan.

Browns - Nothing really.

Bengals - Since most hate Chad Johnson, nothing.

Colts - Stop blaming the RBs for the running game fail last year, it was the OL.

Titans - Albert Haynesworth wasn't good until he was playing for a contract, please admit this.

Texans - Some of you got way too excited over the one win you've had against the Colts in your franchise's history.

Jaguars - Sometimes you complain about the refs too much.

Perhaps...I do pan around to other teams message boards, though. There are a lot of dummies or illinformed out there. haha. I still think our guys take the cake. We have so many casual "fans", that know absolutely nothing about the team they root for but, speak like they know everything. Every team has them but, no one has more fans or followers than the Cowboys...and these are the types I see 9 out of 10 times, it would seem. Even if it is just my perception...it's still aggravating.

Bronco fans because they cant admit that right now they're in a rebuilding mode. They lost their franchise QB and their WR wants out. Switching to a 34 would help either.

Patriot fans because they think that just because Brady will be back, everything will go back to being the same and they will be just as dominant. Honestly, I dont think thats whats gonna happen because I've seen it. Donovan McNabb tore his ACL and it took his 2nd year back for him to feel/seem comfortable again.

Atlanta Falcon fans for overrating the **** out of Matt Ryan. Was he a good rookie QB? Yes, but he was nothing without the run game. He lived and died off of it.

I don't think there is a single Bengals fan on this board who still even brings up the Palmer knee shredder at all anymore but I guess if you've got to find something to ***** about, you'll find it.

That said, the only fan base with which I have any real problem whatsoever with is the Cleveland Browns. Why do they act as though they are great for enduring endless(what is it 50 years now) disappointment across all major sports in their city? I mean, I know the Bengals aren't anything to write home about(same with the Reds in the last 20 years) but at least we have had some competitive seasons since the merger. It's very reminiscent of Cubs fans, TBH.

I agree with most of this, though to be fair, some Bengals ( not on this board, which I know you said "on this board" ) still aren't over the Palmer injury.

Also, Browns fans who thought they were ready to contend for the division title year in and year out, just because they won 10 games last year. Also, I specifically remember them telling us on these forums that they would end with a better record :) (And yes, I'll take our tie against Philly!!!)

Not really an answer to the topic but i generally hate talking to casual football fans, of all teams. Example, there are a bunch of Americans from all over that just finished a semester at my university, i start talking to this one guy (who claims he's a massive Packer fan) about the switch to the 3-4 and i brought up how i think Nick Barnett is going to struggle in the system, instant response is 'what would you know you're not even American'....ok.

Eagles - Oh god where to start.
1. They threw snowballs at Santa.
2. When you're up 54 - 14 in the 4th you do not have to yell at a 10 year old for cheering when his team finally scores.
3. The Philly fans either WAY over rate McNabb or horribly under rate him an that is hard for me to say.
4. I could go on ... but I won't.

Cards - Not the true fans but the band wagoners if you were alive when the Cards were in Chicago and you didn't like them then ... you don't count.

Packers - Unrelenting homerism you lose a HOF player and you act as if it is no big deal ... then it ends up not being a big deal ... which makes me hate you even more. None of you try to feed me that you guys actually believed that Roger's transition would be that smooth.

Lions (present company excluded) - WE CAN'T DRAFT STAFFORD BECAUSE MIKE VALENTI SAID SO!

Bears - Why aren't people still doing the super bowl shuffle? Next time I'm in a Chicago club I wanna see the shuffle dang it!

NY Jets - I hate you for giving the Eagles the idea of spelling your name after every touchdown ... on the streets ... and every time it happens come across your mind.

New York Giants - You guys fail to recognize that you guys actually play in New Jersey.

1. They threw snowballs at Santa.

41 years ago. Probably time to get over it...

2. When you're up 54 - 14 in the 4th you do not have to yell at a 10 year old for cheering when his team finally scores.

When was this?

3. The Philly fans either WAY over rate McNabb

Which ones?

Lions vs Eagles home game. I want to say two years ago in September I was there to see a group of I want to say four Eagles fans grown men mind you do exactly what I said I don't think that it was that exact score but I done seen that shiz.

Which ones?

Bears - some of the ones on this board can be a bit asshole-ish.
Packers - Brett Favre is not the greatest of all time, get over him.
Patriots - If you were defending spygate, you're a dick.
Cowboys - for the most part, a lot of the fans on here are smart, but living in Texas, I deal with the fans that we all hate who know **** about the team and think that ALL of the Cowboys are the best at their position.
Eagles/Giants - It seems as if some of their fans talk a lot of ****, and it gets annoying.

Was that the game where Kevin Curtis actually did something useful? And looking at the box score, Detroit's last TD came in the second quarter to make it 35-21. Stupid facts and ****, always getting in the way of a good Philly bashing.

He damn well can look like the third-best QB in the NFL when he has decent targets. In 2004, the lone year where he had a legit #1 WR, he finished, among full-time starters...

4th in passer rating
3rd in TD passes (31)
2nd in INT (8)
4th in ypa (8.26)
1st in INT % (1.7%)

Give Donovan a real weapon instead of trying to pretend that Kevin Curtis is a #1, and he just might damn well be the #3 QB in the NFL. Look at the presumptive top 3 right now. Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees. They all have #1 targets. And before Randy Moss/Marques Colston for Brady/Manning, I'll take their pass-catchers over some type of combination of Reggie Brown/Freddie Mitchell/Todd Pinkston/Greg Lewis/James Thrash etc...

Top 3 QBs don't get benched.

Was that the game where Kevin Curtis actually did something useful? And looking at the box score, Detroit's last TD came in the second quarter to make it 35-21. Stupid facts and ****, always getting in the way of a good Philly bashing.



He damn well can look like the third-best QB in the NFL when he has decent targets. In 2004, the lone year where he had a legit #1 WR, he finished, among full-time starters...

4th in passer rating
3rd in TD passes (31)

Give Donovan a real weapon instead of trying to pretend that Kevin Curtis is a #1, and he just might damn well be the #3 QB in the NFL. Look at the presumptive top 3 right now. Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees. They all have #1 targets. And before Randy Moss/Marques Colston for Brady/Manning, I'll take their pass-catchers over some type of combination of Reggie Brown/Freddie Mitchell/Todd Pinkston/Greg Lewis/James Thrash etc...

Here is a perfect example of you giving McNabb credit for his stat line and saying he has never had a real receiving weapon. Which I assume means that the WRs are not getting the job done

In this post you are telling me that the reason why Garcia was successful in winning games and McNabb wasn't was because Andy Reid called too many pass plays.

So these post make me believe that you ...
1. Give McNabb credit for his stat line (as evidence that you used it as a reason for him being a top QB)

2. You don't think that the WR corps had much iif anything to do with this. Noted by the fact that you stated that he never had a true weapon outside of TO.

3. You are saying Andy Reid is not a reason for McNabb's success because you are using his playcalling style to tell me why McNabb lost all those games while when he changed the play calling for Garcia he was winning more with the same players around him (+- a couple)

So PLEASE tell me where I'm getting confused here I beg you so I don't misconstrue your points any further.

Here is my fairly simple definition of a homer.

Homer n. - Anyone who goes against the convention always in favor of their team.

For example I am a homer strait up I am a Lions homer. Every year The media other knowledgeable fans ect all give the lions X amount of wins I always give them at least two more. I am a homer even if I end up being right this year and the Lions get five wins I'm still a homer. A lucky homer but still a homer. I'd say the only time I'm not a homer is on draft day because I do knee jerk reactions and I say what's on my mind IE IAF WTF!!!


So yeah homerism is always saying your team is better than everyone else thinks he is.

You're really not good at this whole "reading" process, are you?

In 2004, the lone year where he had a legit #1 WR

By saying "where he had a legit #1 WR", wouldn't I, by default, be giving a lot of the credit to Owens?

You are saying Andy Reid is not a reason for McNabb's success because you are using his playcalling style to tell me why McNabb lost all those games

Right, "all". The hyperbole is strong with this one.

while when he changed the play calling for Garcia he was winning more with the same players around him (+- a couple)

Don't you find it a little odd that when Philly decreased the pass attempts and increased the run attempts and TOP, a lesser-talented QB was able to win more? Philly fans have said for years that Reid needs to run more. Lo and behold, he did it, and oh my God, he won! Look at this past year. When the Eagles went on a tear, they ran the ball.

Cardinals (W 48-20) 40 rushes, 39 passes
Giants (W 20-14) 42 rushes, 30 passes
Browns (W 30-10) 33 rushes, 33 passes
Redskins (L 10-3) Wait for it...wait for it....16 rushes, 46 passes. Includes a stretch where the Eagles threw something like 15-16 straight times.
Cowboys (W 44-6 :D ) 36 rushes, 21 passes
Vikings (W 26-14) 23 rushes, 34 passes (Running against the Vikings is just stupid)
Giants (W 23-11) 28 rushes, 40 passes
Cardinals (L 32-25) 18 rushes, 47 passes

So in the games after the benching, the Eagles ran the ball 236 times and passed 290 times. That's rushing 44.8% of the time. In wins in this time period, they ran the ball 202 times and passed 197 times. That's rushing 50.6% of the time. GASP! They ran the ball, and WON? No way. They stopped asking too much of McNabb, and WON? Say it ain't so! The Eagles won more when they ran the ball? Gee, that sounds awfully familiar. What QB did they do that with before?

I maintain that far too much has been asked of Donovan McNabb in his tenure in Philly with much less help than he needed.

In 2003, for example, Philadelphia's wide receivers caught only five touchdown passes - tying the record for fewest in a season since the regular-season schedule was lengthened to its present 16 games in 1978 and that, by going the entire months of September and October without having a wide receiver catch a touchdown pass, the 2003 Eagles became the first NFL team since 1945 not to have gotten a touchdown pass from any of its wide receivers in the first two months of a season.

Not exactly Jerry Rice.

He's not a HOFer, but he's not exactly a scrub either. Give him weapons, and he makes it rain.

You're really not good at this whole "reading" process, are you?





By saying "where he had a legit #1 WR", wouldn't I, by default, be giving a lot of the credit to Owens?



Right, "all". The hyperbole is strong with this one.



Don't you find it a little odd that when Philly decreased the pass attempts and increased the run attempts and TOP, a lesser-talented QB was able to win more? Philly fans have said for years that Reid needs to run more. Lo and behold, he did it, and oh my God, he won! Look at this past year. When the Eagles went on a tear, they ran the ball.

Cardinals (W 48-20) 40 rushes, 39 passes
Giants (W 20-14) 42 rushes, 30 passes
Browns (W 30-10) 33 rushes, 33 passes
Redskins (L 10-3) Wait for it...wait for it....16 rushes, 46 passes. Includes a stretch where the Eagles threw something like 15-16 straight times.

Did I ever say that McNabb sucked? Please quote where I said that in this thread. I didn' I said he wasn't top 5 let alone top 3 in the league at the QB position. Also I mind you that that was what I said in the original post that most Eagles fans either over rate McNabb as a HOF best QB in the League type or under rate him. Saying that he sucks. Did I ever a say that Jeff Garcia was better at the QB position than McNabb? please quote it. All I was saying with the Garcia comment was that you can't blame it all on not having a top WR. Such that a less talented QB can win with those WRs.

Oh. Well there are some fans that believe that, but they are either insane homers or incredibly moronic. McNabb is a great QB, but to say he is the best QB outside of Peyton and Brady is insane. Right now Drew Brees is playing better, and the argument for Phillip Rivers could be made, as well as others. 5 is where some logical people may start to consider McNabb, and he should be anywhere from the 5 to 2 range, depending on each persons opinion. Personally, I'd have him somewhere in the 6-8 range right now, but thats just my opinion. And I am a big McNabb supproter as well, if that helps you understand where I am getting this opinion.

Patriots - How even though they are the ones being caught for illegal acts, just assume that because they are doing it everyone else must be too. Assume that people are 'picking on them' because they are winning....yeah, okay.

After going 16-0 they at least stopped denying it and would just say that they didn't need it anyway....well, the fact remains you did do it, and you wrongfully denied doing it all this time. Just becuase you still won games doesn't mean that what you did previously was okay or that you didn't do it....

New York Knick fans - booing everything if it doesn't fit in with a player they like. This applies to many fans at the actual events, but booing someone when you have no clue who they are doesn't necessarily mean that it was a bad pick, it just means that you are probably clueless and should keep your mouth shut! haha

Cowboys- I think it was bazaa who did a good bit on " Americas team". What a load of crap. Some tend to live in the glory years.

I don't know if anyone responded to this because I haven't read through the entire thread, but if you know the story on it bzaa's post didn't really even make sense and I mentioned it before to him since he was sporting it in his sig like it did.


He was basically saying how stupid it was for the Cowboys to nickname themselves "America's Team", so he shall refer to himself as 'America's Poster', except for the fact that Bob Ryan came up with that nickname, not anyone in the organization:


Bob Ryan, the Vice President and editor-in-chief of NFL Films, coined this for the Cowboys in 1979. After preparing and editing the teamís 1978 season highlight film he had to come up with a title for the film. [6] He was quoted as saying:

I wanted to come up with a different twist on their team highlight film. I noticed then, and had noticed earlier, that wherever the Cowboys played, you saw people in the stands with Cowboys jerseys and hats and pennants. Plus, they were always the national game on television.

During the Cowboys' first game of the 1979 season, a nationally televised game against the St. Louis Cardinals (which Dallas won 22-21), the television announcer for CBS introduced the Cowboys as Americaís Team and the name stuck.

Dallas's Hall of Fame coach Tom Landry originally did not approve of the appellation of America's Team. He felt that it would give opposing teams extra incentive to play harder. Eventually he gave in and actually came to like the name.[7]


I don't know if people still try to use the nickname or not, I just know some people don't realize it wasn't Tom Landry or somebody that came up with that...I would hope people aren't still clinging to this, just wanted to point out that he was incorrect in his post about the whole America's Team bit.

What pisses me off most about Rivers is the fact that he had to trash talk with fans in Indy when the Colts best pass rusher was out and their 2nd best pass rusher was hobbled, so he actually had a decent game (Really? Trash talking with fans? That's stooping pretty low for a player, and he has nothing to gain but looking like a douchenozzle from it). Then in San Diego last year, he sucks the whole game, and his team would have lost had they needed to rely on his performance (fortunately for him, Scifres bailed the Chargers out), but after the game winning score, he starts celebrating like he did something in that game. So my problem with him has about zero to do with the Cutler thing.

I'm not 100% sure but IIRC Ryan approached Art Rooney Sr. and asked him to use the nickname "America's Team" and Rooney told him "No, this is Pittsburgh's Team"

Ehh I think you are reaching calling out a QB for celebrating after winning a playoff game, no matter what kind of performance he had (which wasn't as bad as you make it out to be). I mean, who wouldn't celebrate? The bench guys celebrated too, and some didn't stand up the whole game.

As for trash talking to the fans a couple years ago, I know what clips you're talking about. If you turn up the volume you can clearly hear what he's saying as he walks off..."I'll be back!", "Thank you thank you, I appreciate it." That's just back and forth.

I'm not paraphrasing up there, that's how it went, you can hear it. The guy doesn't even cuss, the whole thing is more ESPN Mind Drilling. The only time he ever seriously got into it with a fan, it surfaced later that the guy had been threatening his daughters. Don't recall what game that was though.

In the end I'm pretty sure his play does more talking than he does, I mean no offense Dam but I think your opinions might be a little influenced by the results of those Indy games.

Great post, you are completely right, ignorant homer are annoying no matter what team is their favorite. I used to post once and a while on the scout.com boards. But there are too many casual fans there it was hard to have a good football conversation. For example recently they made a topic of top 10 RB's of all time and a good amount of Viking fans were putting AD in the top 10 already :rolleyes:. But while I don't like these ignorant fans it's kinda of fun to read what they say for laughs.

As for the fans that post here I don't really see anything that annoys me. As SWDC doesn't really have those ignorant ones, I consider everyone here well more knowledable than most NFL Fans which is why I post here.

I was at the game. He talked more than what the camera apparently showed. He's a good QB but he's also kind of a douche. Cutler is worse, but that isn't a hard race to win. And yes, the result of that game was pathetic, especially considering the injuries you guys had on offense.

He is a good qb, dont get me wrong but he received all this praise for a decent season, voted to a pro bowl with the same record that shaun hill had last year. Seriously? Come on now that is ridiculous.
Steelers fans - i get it, really i do, u love your team, but the towel thing is absurd. And Troy is a good safety, but he is not the safety of all safeties. He is placed in a position to succeed, hiding his lesser skills which any good coordinator should do. I don't dislike him, i just hate how he is talked about, in very much the same way i dislike romo fans.

1. 6 Superbowls allows us to call our fanbase and team tough AND worship a towel at the sametime.

2. Yes. It is.

3. Troy is not just a good safety, he actually is pretty much the safety of all safeties currently playing. Reed and Wilson are the only ones I would even consider taking over Polamalu. And I don't think that is my homerism. I think that pretty much goes with everyone (minus Colts fans).

Do you know your still talking about a ******* towel? There is no story behind it...It is what it is.

I'm a Bengals fan, but I get the towel thing. I mean it's ridiculous, but how is that any different from the rest of the NFL. Here in Cincinnati we yell "Who dey" over and over again, it's extremely stupid but it can be fun still.

The only thing that makes the towel bad, is when Steeler fans take it to seriously. The appropriate way to handle the towel is treat it as a part of the game, not a part of your life.

Steelers- how can you call your fanbase and team "tough" if you cry over and worship a towel?

And now almost every team does it, and even spreads to baseball come playoff time. That's what makes the Steelers org. pretty cool. They started a trend and everyone else copied it. It's like the whole gatorade dumping on the coach that we started.

They like it, and respect it. It's part of their history. I don't see an issue. It's like GB fans wearing cheese on their heads, or another prop fans use. The Braves used to have the tomahawk chop. At least it's part of their history, and not some random prop used come playoff time. You see that alot now where an opening playoff game for baseball or football, some random team decides to copy it. They take pride in their history and that's part of it.

I personally hate Bears fans. they're just thick skulled meat heads. try talking about football with them. you can make an intelligent point and the response will be:

URLACHERRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!

and, they seem to actually think the Superbowl Shuffle was cool.

Viking fans are just fun. I know a lot of viking fans, and it just gets too easy. they try to talk trash and i just politely remind them that the Vikings are a bad team, pathetic franchise, terrible organization with a lame fan base...and they play in a dump and have a hard time selling playoff tickets. and now, they're only hope is the guy that they spent the better part of 2 decades complaining about. and that usually ends the trash talking before i even need to bring up the lack of superbowl wins.

Also, Eagle fans are every bit as bad as they're given credit for.

The Jets: Naturally, as a Pats fan, I hate the Jets more than almost every other team (maybe the Colts, but thats just good rivalry hate, nothing personal). But what I hate the most is the stupid j-e-t-s, jets jets jets chant, and that guy who wears the fire-helmet and leads it.

Their towels are props given out at the gate. Ours is a historical product that's sold and the proceeds go to charity. That towel represents a great history, a great cause, and a legendary career of a recently deceased announcer.

So yea, our fan base takes it seriously.

Pittsburgh fans because they obsess over things that are completely unrelated to football, like towels, workers, food and the correct spelling of their city.

Also, Fogcity_faithful.....your Troy post makes me facepalm.
