Should We Root Against the United for Sake of the Falcons?

62 posts in this topic

Lol this is just sad bro. If you really rooted against United then you should turn in your ATL fan card. I mean, I'm not much of a baseball fan, but I'm gonna cheer the Braves on because that's what Atlanta fans do.

This mentality needs to die

It's an unproductive sport. It gained popularity in this country for the same reason it grew in poorer regions of the world, mainly because it's inexpensive and a good way for Mommy to keep the kids busy. Throw a ball out into the field or street and Johnny or June will eventually figure out how to kick the ball, no instruction required. A babysitting sport. No bats, multiple balls, gloves, shoulder pads or helmets required.

I have walked the streets of Italian towns that appeared absolutely abandoned because a game....I'm sorry...."a football match" was on. I never thought running and kicking a ball would ever be accepted in a country that demanded productivity and multiple skills in it's past times but here we are.

There are sports that I don't follow and am disinterested in but soccer is one that I actually loathe. Might as well build hacky-sack stadiums and paint your faces and act like fools. This is what we've come to I suppose and don't worry, it appears my mentality, sadly is quickly dying along with my productive American sports.

Nah, it's not sad at all. This mentality should die. The only sad thing is that people thought like this to begin with.

Why soccer? If you want something more or different, give me some Australian rules football. I'd go see that.

Bro yall already know me. I root for all Georgia teams. I'm trying to get rest. I'll take it anyway I can get it.

We're up two nil at the 79:22 mark. Let's go. I'm going to the parade if we win.

Good question about Blank's psyche based on the outcome. I think he will demand more from the Falcons regardless.

Yeah I think the win puts more pressure on Quinn.

If Quinn turns the Falcons to a snoozer Blank won’t tolerate being a loser

Really? Even though they don't wear pads and other costly equipment?

It's a multiple skill sport that typically produces points and a winner. I completely understand the fanatical interest in any activity that people grew up with as a way of life as has been the case in countries other than the U.S. up until recently, I just don't understand that in a country that has multiple sporting interests from Baseball to Football to Basketball and Hockey and on and on, why those people would choose a sport like soccer to get fanatical over. When gauged against the previously mentioned sports I just don't see the draw.

If you dont like soccer then dont watch it. Ive been rooting for United since day one and Im happy Blank finally got a championship. This city has been through so much heartbreak. I would NEVER root against the United. I finally have some happiness in this crap Falcons season.
