I guess my point is why come to a Titans board if you are only a Vince Young fan? If he doesn't show any promise in the next four years or so, you'll have to go through the process again with another board.
Yeah, I see your point, 2008.
I was born and bred a Texas Longhorn fan and I've been a Texas Longhorn fan through good years and miserable years and I'll be a Texas Longhorn fan come hell or high water. And, as a longtime Texas fan, I'd be quite amused if some former Texas A&M or LSU fan told me that he was becoming a Texas fan because Texas had just recruited some blue chip whose high school career he had followed.
So yeah... I don't expect to be taken seriously as a Titans fan. You guys have been Titan fans through the ups and downs and you're the real fans.
I'm not trying to be you, nor am I trying to pretend that I'm suddenly equal to you as a Titans fan or that I’ll ever be as dyed in the wool loyal as you are.
I totally respect you guys for what you are and I'm okay with knowing that none of you can probably ever take a guy like me seriously.
But you know what - the NFL, unlike college football team, is a business and it's one that's only as loyal to its coaches, players and fans as long as it can use them. So, enjoy it while you can before they screw you.
As for me, I’m going to enjoy following Vince Young’s career because – as you will soon find out – he is really something special.
So, I’ll try to be a good neighbor to you, but you've got to realize that Vince Young carries with him a legion of loyal fans who will forever be indebted to him and completely awe-struck by him, so if that’s bothersome to any of you, well then, I guess we've just ruined your neighborhood.
dang, we got some new members out the wazoo. welcome all.
I'm glad you're excited about the Titans for whatever reason, I was just curious why you would become a fan of a team because of one player. I'm a fan of many ex-Tennessee players even if I don't root for their NFL teams.
So are you just trying to prove the truism that bandwaggon fans attached to a player are not true fans of the team? I don't need a 50 on a wonderlic test to figure that out. Frankly, a 16 or a 6 would suffice
Several of the people joining to support VY are un-committted to an NFL team and will be glad to spend $$$ to help your team. Seems like a 100% good thing (maybe unless you'd rather their be cheap seats available on Sunday's). So why is this upsetting?
I thought your post was real good man, and when you are able to take an even handed tone people can't help but take you seriously, so don't worry about that. 60% of the Indianapolis fanbase is made up of UTK fans. Trust me. I know. I live in freakin' PEYTONville. Welcome aboard. Our bandwagon cleared out a few years ago so theres always room for another opinion. Besides, you've just caught the Titans virus, and it's a lifelong...
Well, with the likes of Heath Shuler and Choker-boy Manning, I can understand that. :ha:
Heh! Just kidding.
But don’t think for a minute that I give a flip doodle about other Texas exes like Cedric Benson or Chris Simms. Yeah, I hope they do well, but really, I couldn’t care less.
But here’s the thing: Vince Young is really something special. I think you’ll find that out.
Words can’t explain it. I’d feel silly trying. But I’m totally confident that someday you’ll all understand.
It's the Vince Young Movement. Powerful stuff man.
btw- Does Mary Jane Travis Henry count? :ha:
Vince Young is a very special player.:winker:
