I dont understand why everytime we lose a game you call for someone to get fired or cut. You say he had a bad game based off one play. You say they are not good because they had a bad game. I dont get it. Maybe we should take a look at a real fan base like the steelers and see how they react to a bad play or a bad game. Some of the fans are just ignorant and they speak off there emotions and say stupid things that they have no proof of. They say D-Rob had a bad game but we did not allow a passing touchdown. You say the offensive line was bad but held up very well against a team that has a top rated defense every year. We played a **** of a game and our heads should be held high. We went toe to toe with one off the most physical teams in the league and lost in overtime. So stop the crying and support our team for next week against the Arizona Cardinals.

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FALCONS!

I support my team win or loss. (True Fan)

I admire your effort to be a cheerleader, but the fact still remains...

I am a true fan, and I can tell you Mike Mularky needs to be fired, you can't deny that.

That has to be the worst logic I have ever heard in my life.

Disagreeing with what a team does or how a team plays does not make you any more of less of a fan. Some would argue it makes you more of a fan because it shows you expect perfection out of the team you support. Stop following a team blindly regardless of what they do and have some perspective on things.

Can someone please define to me what a true fan is? Because although I am generally not negative, people who seem to express their true feelings if they are negative are labeled not true fans. This to me is a bunch of BS. Everybody is so quick to call themselves true fans, but let someone have an opinion that differs from theirs and you are a traitor.

why does a fan has to be classifed as being fake when he doesnt like the performance of a coordinator over the years, and thinks he should be fire???thats not a fake fan, thats someone who is passionate and is tired of the same ole same ole..a fake fan is someone who supports a team, then turns on them if they lose, then comes back when they start winning..fake/bandwagon.. I think everyone supports the team on this board, people just express their passion in different ways. Nothing wrong with that.

So Real fans cheer when their team loses due to bone-head decisions by their Coordinators and incompetent execution of basic fundamentals that should have been corrected during Pre-season - should have been corrected after 3 seasons.

No.

Im not going to cheer that. Sorry. I expect better. I want better than that.

Hilarious... If we would've won in OT, people would be on here saying that it was a great game...

Not some people.

I've pointed out what I believe to be defeciencies in the team, and for one week at least those were obviously confirmed, but I still picked the Falcons to win the game 14-13.

Nothing in the game surprised me. If the Falcons would have made a single play in overtime to win the game, it wouldn't have changed that.

So, I hear what you are saying, but it's not that cut and dried.

I am a true fan .......I shed tears at AFC as I watched the Cowpukes fk over our best team ever ....ever since with a few brief respites, my suffering has been "exquisite " .........but my loyalty has never wavered ..a true fan is one that is screaming for their team to win a meaningless December game after three losing seasons in a row .....that is a TRUE fan ....most of the pukes that call themselves "Fans" here in Atlanta could care less about the team when times are tough ......they can just as easily root for the Cowturds or the Squealers, then slide back to the Birds when times are good ......or something like that, LOL .....

Well said. Some fans are just too complacent. They except mediocre. Not me. I want us to be that team that other teams fans fear.

I agree with you 100%. We are all fans and do not deserve to be called haters when we get frustrated w/ Mularkey or whomever. Oftentimes, vocally expressing your displeasure about a festering problem is part of being a passionate falcon fan who wants them to be great. And the closer we come to having the team we think is on the brink, the more passionate we become. Especially if we identify a recurring problem w/ offensive strategy. It wasn't until this very week that I began to really voice my concerns about it.

The problem lies with the fact that there are some real, live, instigators on these boards who love to whip it up. These are the true haters and the longer you are on here, the more apparent it is as to whom these folks are. These are the folks who like to pit people against one another. Trolls and haters are two breeds who share hate as their main weapon. Most do it because it gives them some sort of pleasure and they feel some sort of power trip by manipulating others. But then, the term "Haters" gets overused and misassigned to passionate falcon lovers. Please distinguish between these everyone. I get as riled up as any, so sorry for preaching...

Well said. You get the same type in the Braves forum.

I hate people saying "Im a real fan", "these type of people arent", "I dont turn on my team"

Its not a contest, we are all fans.

Just because you are positive all the time and make threads like this just to get +1's doesnt mean you are the ideal and only type of "real fan"

Someone who wants more and isnt happy after coming away from a loss is also a real fan.

People just approach wins and losses differently, doesnt mean you're not a fan. We all signed up for the boards didnt we?
