is this a joke question
ever since I used tapatalk my quote function on here has been jacked up wtf man
I don't have a superiority complex, maybe you have an inferiority complex. I don't like the attitude I see from most fans, some fans may not like mine. I'm sure there are things you don't like. You strut around calling people fake fans as if you're in a position to pass judgement yet I'm the one who thinks himself superior? Look in the mirror bud. You don't respect my opinion and that's fine, I don't particularly respect yours either. There, we're even.
I'd love to know exactly how many of the 100s of millions of NFL fans you personally know that make you the authority on how the majority of fans feel. EAD

That's what you don't get. I don't pretend to be the authority of anything. I voice my opinion (like everyone else on this board) no one is forcing you to agree with me. You either agree with me or you do not, clearly you do not. And that's perfectly OK.
I base my opinion based on the people I have interacted with just like you or anyone else.I understand it to be common knowledge that a large section of sports fans are illogical and reactionary. Save for a few people I have come across (mostly on this board), I haven't met many people who do not fit that description to a fault. When I say most fans what I mean is "the fans that I have met and or interacted with in real life or online". To me that seems to be something that should go without saying.
If there were some study that affirmed or denied the irrationality of the average NFL fan i would cite that as evidence but seeing as no such study exists, anecdotal evidence is really all I can rely on. Maybe you've had different experiences than I have.
It is widely believed the term fan is derived from the word fanatic which implies by definition a degree of "unreasoning support". Fans are usually irrational when issues regarding the person or group they support are in consideration.
Although it is a matter of semantics, I certainly can't disagree that most fans are irrational. I think a casual supporter of a team, one less passionate about the team, can more easily maintain an objective and unbiased approach team related events or discussions.
Agreed. I love this team but like everything else in my life I try to obtain some measure of objectivity. It's just who I am. Sometimes I'm better at it than others and I can get carried away with things like everyone else but at least I can admit to myself when I'm being irrational. Not everything in life can be some endless pursuit of reason and order but I feel that the ability to recognize and admit when you're being driven by emotion is important.
^ Two most holier than thou posters on the forum, imo
