Quoting my boy Bigrm18:
Yes, I realize we haven’t been great, but there’s no way anyone can justifiably want to change teams. People around here are acting as if we haven’t won a game this year, and we didn’t win any games last year. Don’t get me wrong, if someone comes up with a logical way to get Snyder to change his ways I’m all for it. But for someone to even think about switching teams tells me that they weren’t much of a fan in the first place. I don’t care if you’ve been a “fan” of the team for 30 years, if you decide to switch teams you’re being what’s called a bandwagon fan.
How come the Raiders of the past few years still have fans? How comes the Lions still have fans? How come the Saints before Drew Brees came to town had fans? Because the fans that were there during the 0-16,1-15, and 2-14 seasons were and still are true die hard fans. When’s the last time we had a deplorable season like that?
I’m not being delusional, I know things need to change because we all want the glory days restored. But I’m not being overly dramatic either, by wanting to change my team loyalty.
We can all agree that Snyder sucks!
But you know what I'm really looking forward to on Sunday? Hanging out with my friends, eating some wings, drinking some beer, and rooting for the Skins!
Football is supposed to be fun! Remember when you were a kid and you went to Redskins games (especially those of us that grew up in the Norve era), you didn't care if the Skins sucked or not and you probably didn't even know. You were just estatic to be there and see the team you loved!
It seems like now that we are all grown up and spend our own money on tickets everyone takes it way to seriously and has a sense of entitlement to bitch every day!
If you go to the game or watch the game on Sunday with your friends/family, chances are you're going to have a good time and I bet you the thousands of little kids at FedEx will too.
I don't know if its because of from Richmond and I was lucky to get to one game a year with my Dad and Grandpa, and it was truly a privledge or what that makes me feel this way? Do you know how many of you NOVA or Maryland guys I envy for growing up in the area and having the constant oppurtunities to go to see the Skins, Caps, Wiz, etc?
