Quote from: Eddie Coyle on August 13, 2015, 05:52:42 PM How are New England Patriots fans like Arizona Diamondback fans? Neither existed in 1992.
Quote from: starrmtn001 on August 13, 2015, 07:16:39 PMSo, is this the chat thread where you football fans gather when a game is on?Is there a link that you are all watching together?Who is playing?What inning are they in?
Quote from: Eddie Coyle on August 13, 2015, 06:28:19 PM 93% of "Patriots fans" don't know if the ball is stuffed or blown up. They're the worst. Oversensitive honks, with ZERO appreciation for the history of the game. Until 1997, a home game rarely aired on TV here. Seasons like 1989-1993 were blacked out almost entirely. Since I was an actual football fan, I loved this because NBC/CBS gave us real teams to watch in that 1pm time slot. And I'd have the Pats game on the radio. These Patriots fans of 2015 will split with the first 5-11 season.
Quote from: eddie dean on August 13, 2015, 08:42:51 PMfair weather fans are the same nation wide. when a team is winning, the stadium is full. when a team sucks, not so much.The NFL blackout rules for the home market is outdated and needs to go.You would think the NFL would want to air the games in the home town, regardless of how many tickets they sell.It would create fans and generate more paying customers. right?Instead it pisses off the fans / potential fans.asinine!They should get rid of that rule anyway. Last season, I believe they relaxed this rule in some or all NFL cities. About time!The reality is, as suggested above, when a team is winning, people will & do come. It's the same for every major sport in the USA. People love winners.

Quote from: Paper*Boy on August 13, 2015, 11:55:52 PMI'm proud to be a fair weather fan.Why should I care, let alone watch the games, when a team is neither contending nor rebuilding, and makes consistently bad decisions? Or when they play a style I don't care for, or employ a bunch of jerks and criminals? As they are quick to inform us, it's a business.

Quote from: eddie dean on August 14, 2015, 08:07:10 AMLet me guess, you are a 49ers fan?I don't blame you.I'm in AZ. I know about how horrid decisions can absolutely wreck an NFL franchise.See Phoenix / Arizona Cardinals 1988-2006.

Quote from: Paper*Boy on August 14, 2015, 08:36:58 AMI'd like to see the fans own the teams, and have mostly local players on the rosters
Quote from: Eddie Coyle on August 13, 2015, 10:48:23 PM The blackout rule is an outdated joke, and basically is confined to the 4 teams in the Deep Southeast, ATL, MIA, JAX and TB. Seemingly everywhere else the NFL is certain to have full houses. Here's how bad it was for the Pats in 1990. On Friday morning, about 100-200 tickets were dropped off in the cafeteria of our high school for that Sunday's home game. Maybe 25-30 of them would be taken. They were unscalpable. That's how unpopular they were...and bad. The only win that year was 16-14 over the Colts in Indy week 2. The only game the Pats nearly sold out was the season finale against the soon to be champ Giants...but since that was game was December 30, we were on Christmas vacation and therefore didn't get the ticket drop.
Quote from: Juan on August 14, 2015, 12:35:03 PMJAX hasn't had a blackout in five years, even though the team has been worse than terrible. Where else can you watch, if the game goes bad, hot chicks in bikinis swimming in the pools.
Quote from: Juan on August 14, 2015, 02:01:20 PMThe stands appear half full because the NFL schedules all the games at 1 Eastern when the temperature is 95 degrees and the humidity is 80%. The seats you see on TV are club seats and those people have access to a club under the stands where they can buy mixed drinks and watch the game on TV. Ponte Vedra Beach rich socialites, not real football fans.
