Thank you.. Just like all your GameDay rituals it don't mean a dang thang.. The teams lose cuz the teams lose not because of the fan base

Ignoring his pre-Torre years with the team and GM years, Bobby Cox got the Braves to the World Series in his 2nd year as "manager" (Schuerholz's 2nd year as GM).  And, of course, the Braves blew that series but did go onto a long streak of division titles and one WS championship under him.

Boston - Red Sox did have a jinx, but have had the Celtics in the past and Patriots to definitely offset

Chicago - Bulls and Jordan were great, Cubs were bad but even they got something recently, Bears have had their years

Cincinnati - Some bad years with Bengals and Reds, but the Big Red Machine was great in the 70's

Cleveland - The Indians were bad and Browns are bad, but they have had the Cavaliers to punish everyone for awhile

Detroit - The Tigers were great in the mid-80's and the Piston's were a great basketball team for awhile

Los Angeles/New York - Their teams can usually buy their championships

San Francisco - the 49ers had 2 great QB's and may have their 3rd now, Giants have won and Golden State just won

 

Can any city proclaim to have had it worse than Atlanta for the last 50 years or so? 1 championship?

As bad as it is to lose these big games.....growing up with the Falcons, Bulldogs, Braves, Hawks and Flames in the 70’s was pretty tough and started me out with really low expectations. (Flames we’re actually decent). Things I’ve gotten to witness, really cherish and check off my bucket list:

UGA National Championship 1980

Braves World Championship 1995

The Falcons winning the Super Bowl is the big empty spot in my soul. 

Maybe this Falcons team is like the early 90’s Braves and we’ll somehow win it soon. These are still great times and I’ll always enjoy them even if they piss me the f*ck off sometimes.

Yep no football team Pro or College in the state of Ga has won a FULL championship since 1980 when UGA did it.

We have not only seen losing but losing in ways that was pretty much designed to stomp on our hopes as fans.

At some point it's just not worth it, Eventually I'll just move on and find another hobby, but right now I'm angry and want to take out my anger at these inept teams

Georgia Southern wants all of its national championships back...

It's ******** it really is..how hard is it to finish out a game?? Really?? Today isnt a good day for me and I've had Bama fans text me nothing but roll tide and other crap..when will we ever get to win something 

Never, its pointless to even care anymore. As soon as I'm not angry I won't pay a lick of attention to Georgia sports teams. In the Meantime though I'm going to vent at them until i feel better.

50 years 150+ seasons of pro sports and only 1 championship to our name. Total crap

The Alabama Crimson Tide has officially become the Georgia Bulldogs' nemesis like the Yankees were to the Braves in the 90's, or the Celtics to the Hawks in years past. Georgia fans thought Florida's dominance over the dawgs throughout the 90's in 00's was bad, but Alabama taking not one, but TWO national championships away from your best teams of this decade (2012, 2017) at the same location but 2 different stadiums. That's about as devastating as it gets. 

Losing the Super Bowl and the Natty in the same calendar year  for us bird dawg fans isn't fun either. But I'm evolving lol didn't watch the end of the Rose Bowl or last night, lol seems like torture. thought the officiating was a little suspect

Getting 2-3 calls go your way after having calls go against you all day isn't ref help. But thanks.

Preach!!!!!!!!!  It’s tough, but it must be part of “the process”. It will be that much more satisfying when we finally win one.

Everyone is going to talk **** about us. Tell me you wouldn’t do the same....that’s what I thought. Our teams need us now more than ever to support them, not b!tch and complain because of crap we can’t control. Our team is still in the playoffs about to play the number 1 seed. GO FALCONS! Let’s get these chumps!

I'm sorry, it's become painfully obvious that I am cursed, and therefore any team I root for will also be cursed.

You're in better shape than me. My three things are Falcons, Braves and Tennessee Vols men's basketball. I have given up ever seeing Tennessee basketball once win a championship in my lifetime.

As I get older, I'm just hoping to see some Falcon Super Bowl champs.

Well the state of Georgia in general hasn’t had a real championship since 1995. That’s what we all yearn for. It is sickening, I’m not saying it’s not. Just trying to stay positive because that’s all we got. If we don’t root for these sorry teams who else will?!
