In one of my prior posts, where I said I teared up a little from pride.......that was my wife who wrote that....she hijacked my account and wrote that....I swear. :unsure:

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I didn't tear up from this, but I teared up from the message Rev sent along with it about how proud we are of our team and our future and what not.

Falconsroost can suck it. That message board is full of elitist pigs who basically hate Mike Smith. Screw that website.

I posted it over at Falcoholics and it's getting some positive vibes.

How about this - What if I auctioned off the opportunity to give the final check to Coach Smith. Would you bid on that?

****, can you actually set that up?

I wouldn't, just because I couldn't afford it anyway, but that would be a great idea and lots of others would bid on it.

Do you know for sure that the opportunity to give him the check is there?

I didn't see that. Is that in another thread or something?

Yeah, I saw it in the Big Ups to Rev thread, but here's the post...

I don't deserve any props. THis is all about you guys!!!! You are the ones making this happen.

We will be getting some media love here soon, and with the donated items, we will easily surpass the $2300 goal!

Thanks to all of you! This is not anything I have done. It's about the fans, and about Coach Smith.

This is a quote I sent to a reporting this morning:

You have to understand that we as Falcons fans are in uncharted waters. We are on the verge of our first back-to-back winning seasons in franchise history. We have never had any sustained success. For the first time ever, we are serious contenders. It was Coach Smith and Thomas Dimitroff that brought the winning formula to our organization. There is no amount of money we could ever collect that would appropriately show our appreciation for what he has done here.

You should also do bids on having your name on the front page of the falcons website (if you can do that) and maybe bid on a pair of falcon tickets to the next home game.

Sadly I am broke as a joke until next week so I cant give anything :(.

"Personally, I don’t donate money until I know exactly where it’s going. Others may feel differently and that’s their privilege.

My point was that the people collecting the money are doing so “in honor” of something that hasn’t actually happened. I’m not saying they’re going to flush your money down the toilet, only that it’s a tad unseemly to solicit people’s money over a fine that does not exist. They should have the common sense and good taste to wait until the fine’s been officially imposed."

Sadly, that guy doesn't get it. Its more about the cause and support system we have going for Coach Smith. Obviously this will be going to a chairty.

Under normal donating rules I agree with this but this is more about the gesture. I wouldn't want the money going to buying plasma tvs for prisoners but as long as it is a reasonable charity I am good with wherever it goes.
