Gullible Fans and Ownership

Topic says it all. Atlanta has the most gullible set of fans and front office personnel in the country.

I'm not defending Petrino but people are calling him a snake, rat, and liar and Bobby Petrino was all of those things in January too. You put in garbage and you get out garbage. This is not a surprise. It was only a matter of time. Try not to be so blindly loyal to our next coach...

"Oh my god, he lied to us."

Maybe...but either some of you guys are dense or did some lying to yourself when you thought he was going to hang around longterm.

Are you talking about what he did to Louisville we should have expected this?

Louisville and EVERY OTHER PLACE HE HAD BEEN.

The Petrino we saw was the Bobby Petrino. This is his MO. Its not news, its how the guy operates. The least you can do with a guy like that is be skeptical about his desire to hang around but nope...not even that much from Atlanta. Oh we love Bobby, Bobby is the CEO, Bobby will right the ship....Bobby will run off to Arkansas in the night.

The first three statements never should have been made and the last one shouldn't have surprised anyone.

I don't think it's so much that we're gullible. We're just really hopeful. We're a perennial sub.500 franchise. We're hoping the next guy is the guy.

There are more Bobby Petrinos and Marion Campbells in the world than Leeman Bennetts.

That's why we are always in this stuff. Next I hope they get a guy that wants to be here. Blank has to stop selling himself and this city to these coaches. This is the NFL GD! any coach should be proud to be here!

All I'm saying is Atlanta fans and ownership need to be smart consumers.

You hire a guy with a track record that says he doesn't stay put and then he runs out on you...you shouldn't be surprised. You should smack yourself in the face and say you know what I should have known (or did know) this was going to happen.

You date the hot chick that cheats on every boyfriend she has ever had and she ends up cheating on you. Don't be angry at the chick because she cheated on you...that's what she does. Be angry with yourself for even giving her the chance to do it to you.

Next coach and next GM (hopefully) don't give them a free pass. Petrino got a free pass from a lot of people on this MB. McKay still has a free pass from a lot of people here. You see where that got us.

Show some skepticism people please. We get hosed with this crap because most fans sit there with their head in the sand acting like the red flags aren't waving and the sirens aren't blaring.
