I'm truly curious about this. What is the criteria for labeling someone a homer? Is it someone who supports any and every decision made by the GM/HC? Or is it someone who simply doesn't agree with certain posters' solutions? Or is there some other criteria? I really don't know and since I'm often labeled as one I'd like to understand. Thanks.
I can only speak for myself. They think everyone on the team is great, greater and greatest. They seem to ignore facts, context and anything else just to make the point that the guys on their team are better than others. Its ok to like your team and show them love but you MUST educate yourself on the rest of the teams in the league # 1 and # 2 you have to take YOUR BIAS out the equation. This to me is my # 1 strenght. I can make assesments of my team without using MY bias. I call it straight.
For example, the village eediot. He will make up any wild conspiracry just to keep from admitting player A isnt that good. Even coaches. For instance, rusty will NEVER give Parcells ANY PROPS because he still believes Parcells left us high and dry and refuses to give him credit for drafting anyone or ever turning around a franchise despite doing it Here, Miami and Dallas. He found Romo, Wake, Ware, etc. A bunch of guys who have had success.
To me a homer is a person who cant take their fandom out of the discussion. No ability to rationally make opinions that make sense. No ability to remove their bias from the discussion. They think the players on our team are the best. They think the coach can do NO wrong and they are just happy no matter what.
I give Parcells credot for Wake, Ware, etc. He also draft Bobby Carpeneter and many other busts in Dallas and Miami and got fleeced on the Marshall deal. He also drafted Pat White.
I go by facts. That's what I do. Parcells was also NEVER a GM here, nor was Carroll. Parcells was a great coach who became an average coach without BB. More facts. Carroll was a TERRIBLE and cluleless NFL coach until cupcaking into a situation that was set up well for him by
People are laughing their balls off right now watching you pretend Carroll was great here, as if somehow the entire fanbase forgot the late 1990s with the pumped andd jacked sell job and the pathetic, frontrunning PAts teams of that era. Guess what? We don't forget. Diehard fans don't forget.
Quite convenient you want to overrate everyone BUT BB here, as you don't give BB a fair shake because you think he's a big meanie and is ruining your experience, because the media tells you to react that way.
I have plenty of context, too because I left home. I went to college. I have friends all over the country, many of whom fans of other CRAPPY franchises led by moron owners, GMs or coaches. So, I know.
Meanwhile, you have NONE of the above. Y
You wallow in your little miserable world of the Fellowship of the Miserable, tune into the rado stations that feed that and make money off of you. You can't even see it. There is a very special category for fans like you, and starts with the word MENTAL. lol
We all know it. So, just forget it. Go look at the FA thread that Mt Hurl started. I know the league, I know the players, I know the organizations. Know it cold.
I am just not a moron who is easily led by the media and I know that we have it really, really good right now with Kraft and BB steering the ship.
You want abuse? Go to Detroit. Go to Buffalo, Cleveland, Chicago. All GREAT NFL fanbases, with many deluded homers. But, deep down they are jealous to the moon and back of what we have.
Finally, you idiots with the low IQs hold every single element of this team to an incredibly, high and irrational standard and then cherrypick another team's handful of good or great players, as those teams go 7-9 or 9-7 every year.
An objective person would choose what we have overall and not that.
We've been spoiled big time in this town especially with the HOF or borderline HOF players from the dynasty era. Some of us realize you can't snap a finger and re-create those players over-night, stupid.
That's a lot different than being a homer. I will out-debate you on any football, baseball or hockey topic to the moon and back, Shizzles. You can keep your Brady panties on your head and be miserable. You can also keep the NBA topics. Those are yours. lol
thx for proving my point. You def. won THIS debate cuz no way Im reading all that spin/bs. You started off your response with a bunch of irrelevent deflections that are all off topic. Why am I not surprised...??
Why are you bringing up the nba again?? I hope those arent more of your racial undertones cuz they are disguised badly. Id rather not do this w/YOU today. I have a lot to do so happy posting. You win.
