Happy F-ing New Year! And with the start of a new year, it was the start of the NFL playoffs; those NFL playoffs that the Bears are seemingly allergic to. I wasn’t even going to watch them… still pissed at another wasted year for our boys. I guess it won’t be wasted if we start making the playoffs going forward, but that’s no guarantee. Unfortunately, I have gotten used to dealing with the playoffs without the Bears; this is at the root of my anger at the NFL nowadays. However, I actually did tune into some of the action this weekend…
The games were OK; it’s not like I was stuck on them. It was nice to see some new teams in there… some of these new teams have such a poor following. All year teams like the LA Rams and the Jacksonville Jaguars struggle to draw; they play in front of half empty stadiums… and they’re playoff teams!!! And now, come Wild Card weekend, all of a sudden, the stands are packed; I call bullshit.
It just ain’t right. We die hard fans live and die with our teams… have to put up with all the losing… get pissed off every Monday after the game because of another loss… just waiting for the Bears to be good again… Yeah, it’s not easy; wait, let me clarify. It’s not easy watching your team lose week after week, year after year, but… it’s easy sticking with my team. I know I always say never say never, but in this case, I think it’s safe; there will never come a day where I root for another team. It’s Bears or bust.. same with my other teams. And while we wait, for what we deserve, there are these “fake fans” filling the stadium to watch playoff football. That’s who this Hate File is dedicated to.
An NFL team in LA? You’re kidding me… haha. I lived out there, so I’ve seen it first hand. THE football team in LA is the USC Trojans, period. They have no interest in NFL football. On Sundays, on sports talk radio, there wouldn’t be NFL previews; there would be USC post game talk. Driving around on Sundays in LA, you would see people in football jerseys… of the Patriots, Steelers, Broncos, Bears… teams from all over, but no LA teams. And now they have two teams?!?! They can’t even support one team. Doing whatever the hell they want to do all year long, and now since the Rams made it to the playoffs, everybody is a Rams fan? That pisses me off.
And then there’s Jacksonville. Wasn’t this team going to move cities because they couldn’t support it? Weren’t they going to draft Tebow back in the day to get people to fill that stadium? This team is a joke… well, not this year they’re weren’t. They were fricking great; I hope they beat the Steelers, but don’t you just hate when folks come out of the woodworks to fill a stadium where a team is playing that you really don’t care that much about? Let me take that back for one second; there were a ton of Bills fans there. Bills Mafia travels well; those folks deserve a playoff berth. But people in Jacksonville? Pathetic.
As the message “did you hear the Rams/Jaguars made the playoffs?” got around in Los Angeles and Jacksonville, THEN all of a sudden everybody is a fan. Were all of you fans when those teams sucked? I didn’t think so; that’s why you’re fake ass fans.. that’s why you don’t deserve shit. Go back to doing whatever the hell you were doing before you found out that there was some sort of NFL tournament going on this weekend, and leave rooting for sports teams to the real fans. I hate your ass! Peace!
