I don't know how many times I've had someone actually turn their nose up at me when I said I was a Raider fan. Well DAYUM!! I was BORN in Oakland for goodness sake. My mama is a Raider fan, and so was my GRANDMA!! Now what? Two of the strongest emotions are love and hate... and the line between the two is very thin. I woke to straight 'madness' in our chat room today, due to this Saints/Falcons game. Folks from all over tune in and chat, but make no mistake.. you are in Falcon territory.. so, they don't take too kindly about ANYONE saying anything about liking the Saints. I (being a by-product of New Orleans) had to get used to them calling them the 'Aint's. But I learned early on to just keep my opinions to myself. The new folks coming into the chat room don't understand this rule, so today it was like a slug fest. EVERYONE was 'all in dey feelings'!! Come on, how old are we?! It was just too damn much. Rooting for your team should be FUN!! not 'hateful'.
Can we just get back to 'loving the game'?
