Re: What are you going to do about it?

I got an idea, everyone with season tickets ....give them to an opposing team fan, let our home field for once look like an away game so DS see's the fans are not happy and see what he's in for if he thinks fans are going to tolerate mediocracy and pay full price for the crap that keeps getting shoveled out of the organization.

But they are, at the end of the day, simply a diversion.

I spent four years with the Redskins being a very major part of my life and it was during that time that I realized they didn't need to be. Still love them though

There arent enough tampa fans that will take the tickets, even for free

This is a struggle for some of us.
I feel like an alcoholic or something...I know if I watch, I may regret it...but the game is out there...I drink it...and sometimes...like yesterday...I puke!

I have little to no life outside of rooting for the Skins. Losses like this crush what little bit of soul I have left.

Zorn goes for it on 4th down. This is a team for the fans by the fans. If you dont like it dont be a skins fan because we dont need you if your only gonna like them after a win. Hail to the redskins and lets look forward to this week!!!
Welcome to the board and well done.

That is the kind of logic that gets most fanatics into trouble.
It makes no sense.

This sounds more like religon than being a fan.
Not judging...cause I've been there too....still am, kinda.

I'd like to be a Skins fan without all the pain...somehow, we gotta find the solution....I think the solution is put them at a lower priority level.
You will know you do when you actually choose something else over watching the game...I am not there yet.

Seriously??? You may want to rethink your priorities in life.

You sound like Abe Lincoln but you are talking about a football team.

My point is that this comment sound more like a "faith" issue and a "core identity" of who you are and your purpose in life rather than being a fan of a football team hoping that they win more than lose...again...not judging because I see myself in that comment...I am just trying to become less extreme with my skins' needs

I took my wife and her sister and their friends out to lunch and then clothes and shoe shopping yesterday. Granted, I hung out outside the stores and followed the game on my phone until I could get home and watch it, but still...

I'm with Steven4est here. Sports fandom is not about rational choice. It's about blind, unreflective irrationality, mixed in with a touch of jingoistic homerism and a dab of violent tribal lunacy. And there's the beer. And hotwings.

I suffer when the team loses, I gain in joy and confidence when they win. Does this make ANY sense in the grand scheme of things? No! Would I trade it for a life without irrational fandom, even of a team that loses to the 0-19 Lions? Not for a second.

Now pass the beer, fire up the grill, get out the foam #1 finger and the overpriced replica jersey AND ROOT FOR THE SKINS!!!!

(Sometimes, thinking is overrated. And I am a philosophy professor. Seriously.)
