No really, I am not trying to dis anyone (even you Slingblade). I was just attempting to make a general statement about how certain fans have a misconception that they are padding up on Sunday. These fans say things like "We spank his ass" when the correct statement would have been "the Titans spanked his ass". B/c we know if Slingblade ever tried to spank duece I think duece would shove a McNair jersey up his ass.
Also I am a fan of the NO Saints and did not like my boy duece getting a cold dish of 11 for 8yrds or whatever the horrible line was.
Sorry guys just browsing. Didn't want to ruffle any feathers.
I'm unruffled and don't have an axe to grind, but I'm just surprised at why anyone would care so much, or be so bothered, by a fan saying "we" in referring to a team that he roots for. I think that's pretty common and normal. It's quite common to say "we beat you" or "we kicked your butt" or even "we spanked you" when referring to your high school, college, or hometown pro team, even when the person saying it isn't on the team. What's better, "they"? I think plenty of players love the fact that fans are so involved in the game that they attach themselves enough to say "we".
I just don't see why anyone would get so unruffled about the word "we".
