  • Frustration

    Do you ever find casual fan's relative lack of knowledge frustrating? You can't always blame them, and even Sports Personalities in radio and TV do it too. For example Me and my homeboy where talking about the Draft and the conversation went

    Me:Wassup, hey fool you gonna watch the draft

    Him:Yeah, I know all about the Draft, man

    ME:All Right, then who is D'Brickashaw Ferguson

    Him:He's out of Alabama, Right?

    Me:NEver Mind

    I don't find it frustrating. It's not like being a draftnik is widespread among us young people. I know the most about football in my grade anyway, so I'm used to it.

      Um, I don't mind if a fan asks me for advice or something, or asks me about a player and just doesn't know much, but what I hate is when someone argues with you and has no clue what they're talking about.

        I know what ya mean man. When you try to say something and some ignorant know it all barges in and makes some completely wrong statement. Or if you are having convo with your friends and they just say something so stupid but you just roll with it.

          It's only frustrating to me if they "come off" like they're a know-it-all and end up not knowing squat!
          If they're just making conversation and not spouting erroneous facts, then it's all good.
          I feel it's my duty to school some of the younger Raider fans.
          A lot of the "specifics" I know are more "position related".
          I played a little CB in JC.
          I feel more knowledgeable about the cornerback position itself than any other position on the field.
          I don't expect to have much of a conversation on that subject with many folks unless they played it themselves.

          Again, I just met a KC Chiefs fan here in the Caribbean today and he was a cool cat.
          We're gonna get together tomorrow and talk a little football at the swimup bar!!!

            yeah, I am probably one of the bigger NFL followers that I know. I mean, even in offseason I spend time to know what is going on.

              That's how I feel. If they don't know anything, then fine. But when they act like they know everything there is to know about it, and then they prove they don't... that makes me annoyed.

              I made a topic about someone who thinks he knows what he's talking about. I said he thinks Brodrick Bunkley won't be drafted until the 3rd round, Tamba Hali should be a top 10 pick, Mathias Kiwanuka is going to Philadelphia with the 14th pick, etc.

                I only get mad sometimes when an outlandish claim is made.
                Im 15 and a 9th grader, and me and my friend spend math doing our mocks and playing the "Where did he go game" ie steve smith. utah.

                  Why would this bother you? Not everybody "knows" :P as much about the draft as you/we do.

                            A kid at my school bet me 10 bucks Jimmy Williams would go top 10.

                              I only hate it when they try to act like they know what they're talking about.. and say something stupid and you have to correct them about how wrong they are and it makes it awkward.


                              "What about that kid, what's his name... Omar Jacobs? I hear he could go top 10"

                              "Uh... No dude, people said that about a year ago, now he won't go before the 4th round..."
