Thumbs down Fake Redskins fans

I gotta a question--am I the only person that notices the emergence of an awful alot of Redskins fans lately? I mean I love the fact that I have more people to talk to about one of my favorite subjects( The Skins) But if you cant tell me the last time we won a super bowl-------YOUR A FAKE REDSKINS FAN

Re: -----------Fake Redskins fans-------------

I for one have much higher standards for a fan...I want people to be able to talk about our low round draft picks from 3 years ago and be able to name the roster at least two deep!

(This isnt an invitation for people to start naming the Skins roster -- I, too, have heard of Google)

Re: -----------Fake Redskins fans-------------

I sympathize with ya, man.

I bought my season tickets three years ago, after being on the waiting list since JKC first announced the new stadium, which was back in 1986 I believe. I was #32,428 on the waiting list and I thought that I'd be an old man before I got tickets. I suffered through that last Spurrier season and wished to hell that I'd had season tickets when Joe Gibbs was the coach.

January 7th, 2004 - My prayers were answered.


To paraphrase Thomas Paine, I can't abide "sunshine fans and summer 'Skins boosters". You're right, where were they when the team was struggling?

Hail to us, the true believers, the ones who live and die with the teams fortunes and bleed burgundy and gold. Our time has come again at last!

I'm a true believer. I've been a fan for about 5 years now. I didn't care about football the last time the skins made the playoffs.

Re: -----------Fake Redskins fans-------------

All I know is that I've been a die hard fan since I was born. I had gear from then until now. I also know that once a team starts doing well, you always get lots of front runners that like to wear the gear of the teams that do well. Its pretty ridiculous. I also can't stand when people say I used to like .......... but now i like ........... Thats also just as bad! I'll always be a die-hard skins fan.

a winning record means we will get bandwagoners. It's just how it is.

Re: -----------Fake Redskins fans-------------

I'm in LA and went to breakfast this morning wearing my Redskin hat that I've had for 10 years and 2 people commented on the team..
NO ONE was commenting 5 weeks ago. We live in a frontrunning society.

Re: -----------Fake Redskins fans-------------

I think it's rather funny seeing people come out of nowhere to start spouting their belief in how well the skins will do and how they've been rooting for them as long as they can remember. I know for me personally this year has been an awesome feeling after trying to be optimistic about the teams chances, even to a fault some would say, while some other people seem to find reason after reason not to believe in the future of this franchise and some just completely give up hope. I know I'll be praying my heart out at work while the game is going on and until the final whistle blows, I'll believe my team can pull out a win.

Re: -----------Fake Redskins fans-------------

Funny how warpathers are poking fun at new warpath/forum members who have joined in the past few weeks.

Just because some of us have been in here posting messages for 3+ years, that makes us greater fans than those who joined the site a couple of weeks ago? This is the height of internet nerdiness!! We know nothing about those who joined recently. They could be just as die-hard redskins fans as the rest of us. If the moderators were so convinced that all the true fans were already warpath members, then why not just lock up the site and deny these trolls new memberships?

I for one welcome all those who have "crawled out of the woodwork" in recent days and weeks. We need more fans and supporters on here....certainly makes for more opinions, viewpoints and discussions.

Hail to the skins.
