Vick in the Dome and Falcons Fans cheering for him

105 posts in this topic

Im happy that vick bounced back. I have no problem with him. I wish the best for him. He is indeed electric. My problem starts when So called "Falcon Fans" cheer for him when we play him. if you are a vick fan, you are a philly fan. Not a Falcon fan. What true Fan cheers when a person on the opposing team scores on us?? I just don't get it

Well put, but you can't fault people from Atlanta coming to a game to cheer on their favorite player. Just because they're wearing the only Vick Jersey that they have doesn't necessarily mean they're an atlanta fan.

I think yall should take the high road. Like Arthur Blank did. Like me and Tandy did. Like many others did. Buddy played here for six years. Good times. Bad times. But he's long gone now. Wish him well. Let him go.

He's good for the NFL. My favorite league. I view him now like I view any other competitor. I hope he does well but want to kick his as any time we play him. That goes for Rodgers, Manning, Brady, Brees, Ben, Rivers, Vick, you name it.

Let's face it. Many here still have Vick issues. Some will never get over him. I'm over him. Tandy is over him. Blank is over him. Many others are. Are you over him? Search your feelings.

I'm a Falcons fan not a Matty Ice fan. Somehow we object to people being Vick fans but urge everyone to be a Ryan fan. When Ryan throws a TD I cheer for the Falcons not Matt.

And when Vick throws a TD, you boo as a Falcons fan, not cheer him on.

That makes you a Philly fan.

If you are behind Matt, you are a Falcons fan. Doesn't mean you are a Matty Ice fan, but you have to be behind him as a Falcons fan, especially in such a QB driven league.

You have to remember, Vick brought excitement to this city and people love that. It's not just the ATL but it's the entire NFL. I don't think our fans are cheering for Philly and I believe you know that, our fans are cheering for the person. I don't have a problem with football fans showing their support for a player who has been through what he has and still have the will to do what he's doing. Good luck Vick but I hope the Falcons win the game. LET'S GO FALCONS!

I don't think it will be as hostile as it was a few years ago but I still wouldn't bring your girl or children if you have plans to start something at the game.

I also don't think the people checking tickets at the gate will be wearing #7s this time either....

You're not going to stop football fans from loving Vick so you might as well get over it. Vick is the most exciting player in the league so how can you not appreciate that. Everybody else has forgiven him of what he did, and most importantly, if God can forgive him who are you not to, I'm glad Vick was able to come back and do what he's doing. When the Falcons play Philly I want the Falcons to win period, but I also want to see some excitement. LET'S GO FALCONS!

So, let me get this straight, you're not only speaking for yourself but EVERYBODY and... GOD? What? :blink: :blink: :blink:

Now maybe Vick met a guy in prison named Jesus and he forgave him...maybe that's where you're getting all of this from...maybe. :lol:

What happens if he's on my fantasy team...I can cheer for him a little bit, right?

Are you stupid son? Football fans? Try VICK FANS, that's the biggest folks have with people like yourself, they weren't Falcons fans they were VICK fans first and Falcons fans a distant 3rd.

I have faith in the fans this time around. The Boos for the iggles and Vick were much louder than any cheering back during that game in 2009. It just so happened that our team didn't show up that day, so the typical ATL crowd cleared out and all that was left were the Vick huggers.

If our team shows up we'll be loud and proud of our Falcons for sure.

Im new to this board and probably will be negged for my feelings towards this. In my opinion there are several things wrong with that situation.

First and Foremost: The idiots who claim to be Falcons fan's but root on Vick even while playing the Falcons. If your such a big Vick fan, root for the team he plays QB for.

2nd: The Falcons "Fans" that are reluctant to go to the game because they don't want to deal with the people who haven't gotten over their affinity for Vick. That's the exact reason we as a city have a bad sports reputation. ****, there are HORRIBLE teams with fan bases that would be out in full force telling Vick to **** himself.

My feelings toward the situation is that if your a Falcons fan get behind your team and who plays for your team now. Vick made a tremendous amount of money from our franchise and didn't appreciate it. I'm glad he was able to make a comeback and turned his life around, but he no longer leads our team and we have a young, high character, stud quarterback now. Arthur Blank is putting the product out there, which is alot more than most teams could say. So lets support our Falcons and not someone who didn't appreciate what our franchise did for him. Run with it or run from it.

"After all he's been through"????

Give me a f'n break! You act like the guy is some innocent victim. Nobody made him start a dogfighting ring. Nobody made him flip off the fans, nobody made him get herpes, nobody made him try to sneak a weed bottle on a plane, etc., etc. He is, and always has been, dumb as a box of rocks. He made bad decision after bad decision while he was here, and continues to do so by saying dumb sh!t in interviews.

"The will to do what he's doing"

WTF??? The will to play football for huge sums of money? You act like he started doing non-profit work feeding starving children, or helping the homeless or something.

Sure, he's psychically very gifted and can be exciting, but he's not on this team, so nobody that claims to be a fan of this team should be cheering for him under any circumstances. You want to buy a ticket to come cheer for a guy who pizzed on this team, the fans, the city, etc... that's your right, just don't pretend to be a fan of the Falcons.

Obviously by his latest quotes, he has moved on... probably high time you people follow suit.

For the record: I hate vick, all of his fans and anyone who knows him. A little extreme perhaps but that's just me.

If anyone forgets this I will be happy to remind them.

I've liked him, disliked him (after he quit in that Panthers game), then went to not hating him. Now I just don't give a s*** about him period. Wouldn't hurt me one bit if Abe ripped his leg off at the thigh bone then throw it across the field to the Eagles sideline.

Go falcons!

Had a discussion with my best friend who is also a falcons fan (30+ years). Said when Vick comes to Atlanta he can't help but cheer for him. My blood started to boil. The discussion when on and he said that Vick would get lot's of Atlanta fans going for him in that game. How the he11 can you be a Falcons fan and cheer for the guy who is trying to beat your team. I'm telling you this is going to be an odd game. I will be there and it's going to be hard to contain myself (but i will) if the guy next to me has on a Falcons jersey but cheering for Vick. Might feel like seeing an ex-girlfriend who dumpped you with another guy.

I think we'll win this game so in the end that's all that will matter but the though of it makes me sick.

I would cheer Vick anyday over Ryan in GA, Dome and pray Arthur resigns him because Ryan aint the answer. Ryan has been surrounded with a ton of talent and still has failed to win a playoff game and he's going into his 4th season.

Vick is far more exciting than that entire Falcons team/

I haven't seen the latest figures, but as of November last year, Vicks jersey was the most sold jersey in Georgia according an article on NFL.com. No wonder this fan base was recently rated 30th out of 32!

Eagles will be a tough team to beat this year and with the way the Falcons have played in their last few home games (GB & NO), ita not looking good! Although this time the stadium won't completely empty of all the Atlanta fans in 3rd quarter, the Vick fans will still be around,

Tandy never liked him and probably thought he didnt deserve a second chance like most people that look like her.

Yes I agree, let's sign a 32 year old Mike Vick to a $15M/yr contract in the offseason and have Matt run out the rest of his contract on the bench. That way, we can commit $30M/year to the quarterback position and be perennial contenders. Especially since Vick wants to come pack to Atlanta so badly as made obvious by his comments earlier today.

Then you are not a Falcons fan, so go to the Eagles board. The guy quit on this team. He didn't study film, practice hard, etc. He admitted this. I would never root for a guy who did that to a team, think how Warrick Dunn and those guys should fill. The comments today is just him trying to blame someone else for his crap. Sure Mora/Knapp are to blame for allowing him to be lazy, but he was a man, getting paid like Peyton, so he should have done what was expected. Hope he fails again, at the end of last season he looked bout like the same old turnover machine Vick. Hope that is all he is for the rest of his career.

Its not the fact that people want them to support Ryan. They dont want them to support Vick. As a football player he is good. But, he is not on my team and I will NEVER cheer for him in the dome. I will NEVER cheer for him when he is playing my Falcons. And I will NEVER cheer for him to get a superbowl before we do.

What if your sister married a brilliant college student and supported him in med school? But the guy was drinking and abusive and eventually flunked out. Then they get divorced. The guy shapes up, gets remarried, graduates, and goes on to a great career as a doctor.

Now, it would be one thing if he said that your sister was a wonderful woman, he treated her wrong, and is very sorry for everything that happened.

But what if he said I wish I had never married her in the first place and implicitly (or expressly) criticized her . . . even blaming her for his earlier lack of success?

Would you want that guy in your house?

Personally, if he took the gracious approach, I'd shake his hand and wish him well (but probably not recommend him to my friends.)

But if he took the other route, I'd knock the snot out of him.

I've been telling people that Vick was a sociopath from the very beginning - that he never actually changed. He is doing what he is told to do because of an ultimatum.

He only stopped dog fighting because he was caught, and he only changed his attitude for football because of debt.

The huggers will make any excuse for him because in their mind he can do no wrong. I think people are obsessed with star power rather than the quality of human being - they simply don't care.

This is not directed to you, just so you know but I am using your reply as step off point to make mine.
