First, I am always happy to see more dedicated Eagles fans on the board. I have read your opinions, and I am disappointed in the statements you have made. I would expect better from any fan of any team on this board. Abandoning your franchise that you purportedly love if they trade or release a player is just uncool IMO.


Good to see that you have season tickets. I am very jealous. However, I am not a season ticket holder for several reasons.

1. When I was growing up money was tight, and we could not even afford season tix in the nosebleeds at The Vet.

2. When The Linc opened in 2003, I was living in DC just after college. I had crushing student loan debt, and my rent was $1185 a month for an apartment. My annual salary was only $41,000 a year. I had no savings and no credit card with enough limit to purchase 2 SBL's or season ticket packages.

3. I currently live just south of DC. While I could afford season tix now, I am about 38000th on the team waiting list.

So yeah, I puchase Sunday Ticket on DirecTV just so I can watch every game. I drive up to attend at least 1 game at The Linc every season, and I go to the Eagles-Redskins game down here every year. I also spend a lot of time promoting the Eagles and defending them on this site. I fail to see how your having season tickets excuses you from your "threat" of abandoning your team and somehow makes me less of a fan.

Ah, Shasta. He would have had a field day when Garcia helped the team turn things around last year after McNabb got hurt.

I guarantee you that your statement is an extremely gross exaggeration and is in no way accurate. I would say that maybe 5% of self-described Eagles "fans" may say they will abandon the team, and probably 10% of them will if it happens. However, 100% of all Eagles fans will come back to the team when they are winning.

I have a hard time believing that only 5% of Eagles fans are legitimate fans who are loyal to their team.

By my calculations, maybe .5% AT BEST of Eagles fans (including fair-weather fans and CW99) will abandon the team over this kind of thing. As I said above, 100% of those who leave will come back if the team goes on another playoff run.

Duck season is that it being a fan is not what you say it's what you do and what i do is bleed eagles green no exceptions. Basaza i've been an eagles fan for upwards of 17 years i don't think i'll be abandoning anything

I never asked you for an apology, dude. I just stated my opinion that your opinion made you look like a terrible fan, and that upset me as a fellow Eagles fan. You can believe what you want, but at the same time, I think that your viewpoint here is horribly misguided and shows an extreme lack of faith. Again, that disappoints me.

I respect that you were able to get those seats and that you've risen above your problems, but you should never tell anyone that you're a better fan because you have season tix.

You said before that you've abandoned the 76ers and the Phillies, and that if the Eagles were to get rid of McNabb, you would abandon them. So, given your history, what you do is abandon teams for whatever reasons. Honestly, I can understand why you're sour on the Sixers and 76ers, but the Eagles? Come on...

When you say you'll have to choose between other teams if your team gets rid of one particular player, I think that's going too far. Sure you can talk smack about your team, but the thought of ever being a fan of another team has never entered my mind. The fact that you listed the Redskins as a potential new team makes it that much more disgusting to me.

Fair weather fans deserve to be followed around by a blizzard.

Well, to be exact, I just went back and read the comments made about you since your initial post about Tommie Harris. At no time did anyone call you a horrible fan. Your lack of loyalty was chastized, but you had to expect that. If you reread, you will see that you misinterpreted.

Season tickets or not, you don't ever say something like you said just because a player, as good as he may be, might be on his way out of town unless you want your loyalty and cojones questioned.
