  1. People can make friendly bets. Could be something as simple as wearing the opponent's team hat for a week, or buying lunch.
  2. Great. You show that your confidence is more than just lip service.
  3. I am not mad. I am happy. I find it humorous that people get so adamant about people in the media sharing their opinion. This isn't my team. It is Arthur Blank's team. I am a fan of the Falcons. I am not a fan of Falcon fans. It seems that certain fans, particularly homers, are overemotional zealots that ramble incoherently, just like you just did. I come on the board to point this out.
  4. I didn't complain about homers whining about the media. In fact, I rather enjoy it. I am simply asking them to back up their confidence.
  5. So you are conceding the Falcons are not popular. What does that have to do with having a double standard? It's one thing to show more coverage because of popularity, but it is another for the media to simply say teams will do better because they are more popular. That is a non-sequitur fallacy.
  6. There is no whining in my post. Just an observation. Maybe you should look up in a dictionary in what whining means. Get an education kid.
  7. Anytime the chant is generic ie the chant can be used with any team, it is lame. It is like "Go Giants go" or "Go Raiders go".
  8. If you guys are so confident the Falcons will win, maybe you guys should make a wager on it.
  9. You can't teach an old dog new tricks. Smitty is set in his ways.
  10. Most likely never, till GM changes his hiring, drafting and free agency style.
  11. Maybe because the Seahawks have shown to have a great team, and the Falcons have yet to have that. Seahawks didn't just go 13-3, but they played in the toughest division and did well against great teams. Falcons, even during their prime, would struggle against good teams. Till the Falcons dominate, the fans will be weary, and for good reason. Once people start jumping on the Falcon's bandwagon, the ride is over before it begins. Falcon fans are always looking to the next season.
  12. I guess the Illuminati controlled media is conspiring against the Falcons.
  13. The guy is going by what he observed in the preseason. If he hasn't seen any improvements, he is not going to care what the Falcons added. You are assuming he is wrong simply because the Falcons added these players therefore the team will automatically improve. By doing that you are making a baseless assumption yourself. Falcons have not exactly looked great in preseason. They look ok at best. Best to have a wait and see approach IMHO.
  14. They haven't made an argument. They made an observation. All he is saying it is a weak team. With a 4-12 record from last year, it is hard to argue with that till the Falcons prove otherwise. Falcons have some additions, but they also already lost 2 starters to offset that.
  15. Sapp makes his prediction and the homers are getting mad. You guys claim you think he is an idiot, and yet are so concerned about his opinion. I guess the homers who never played in the NFL know more than the HOF DT. U mad bros?
  16. Actually some do. I never claimed to be the voice of the people. I was talking generally. Nice try though. You really have no idea what you are saying do you. Maybe if you pulled your head out of your azs, life would'nt look so shiitty. Also the longdicking my wife would require a longd1ck. But of course your insult is in jest. You are dreaming.
  17. I haven't moved the ball around at all. I address the points the OP made specifically. The recent head to head rivalry favors the Saints. The Falcons are up 4 games overall. Those are the facts. My only point that no one cares about the overall record because most fans have neither payed attention to it for that long, or lived that long, let alone care. People go by RECENT history. We are talking about the 2 CURRENT teams with the 2 CURRENT administrations. In this sense the Saints have dominated record wise. That is not changing the subject matter. That is sticking to it. It was the OP, who is butt hurt, that brought up the "big brother" idea because the Falcons were still up by 4 games. So what. The fact is the Saints have done better last year and as good as the Falcons did this off-season, the loss from injuries offsets whatever potential improvements the team made. If the Falcons were 11-5 and the Saint were 4-12 last year, the Falcon fans, in particular the homers, would use that recent history to suggest that the Falcons would win the next time the 2 meet. After all that is EXACTLY what Falcons fans did when the Saints did crappy 2 years ago and the Falcons went 13-3. So if the Saints fans do the same thing the Falcons fans do, which is to go by recent history and infer future projections, then why are homers getting bent out of shape about it? Double standard much? PS: I never claimed the Falcons and Saints don't have a rivalry. What I said was that calling Saints fans "enemies" is taking entertainment too far. Get your facts straight. You are a spectator, not a player. I only used the overall record because as already mentioned, YOU were insistent on bringing it up. The Saint fans were talking about recent history, you moved it to overall rivalry history, and then I showed overall history. If you say I moved the goal posts because of that, wouldn't that be true with you? Why did you change the goalpost? Your last remark only shows that you have nothing to say but whine, and in typical homer fashion resort to insults because you are being over emotional with entertainment.
  18. I notice that critical thinking is not your strong suit, so I will be patient with you. You say I am a true fan albeit devil's advocate and then later say i come across as fans of other teams. Which is it? Everyone else is right in what area? What have I been wrong about in what I said? You say I veer away from my own points. Really? What point did I veer away from?
  19. How is that being intellectually dishonest? I have not denied that fact.
  20. I notice that homers who have no reputation need to resort to calling other Falcon fans "saints fan". There is no grasping at straws. The Falcons have a 4 game edge over the Saints overall. No one denies that. No one cares about it either. I gave the link to the overall record because Five Fifs insisted at looking at the overall history. Well overall history points in favor of the Saints. That is a fact. That has nothing to do with liking the Saints. Just like if I pointed out the majority of NFL teams which do in FACT have a greater winning percentage and overall wins than the Falcons, that would not mean I am a fan of those teams either. You are unable to divorce yourself from talking about facts with your bias as a fan, and assume all others are as dishonest as you are. In psychology that is called projecting. The retardation on this board, from homers, seems to be that if I point out a fact that for a particular team, then I must be a fan of that team. I've been called a Packers fan, Saints Fan, Carolina fan, 49ers fan etc etc. The one that seems to be grasping at straws is you and other homers. Try thinking critically for once instead of emoting all the time. It might help you. You never know. Try it for once - you might enjoy it.
  21. That is fine. It just doesn't seem like they are enjoying it when they call other fans "enemies". To me, they are taking it much too seriously. Cleaned it yesterday. Still sparkling fresh
  22. I have no tickets. I have NFL Network and ESPN . But seriously, I don't live locally, so I do not get the broadcasts. So it is either NFL network or a live s tream.
