The Tragic Inner Life of Sports Fans
The full title of the book is:
True Believers: The Tragic Inner Life of Sports Fans by Joe Queenan.
Queenan specifically talks about fans like "formerredskinfan" and the demented psychology driving his thinking. I am a die hard regardless of who the Redskins draft, cut, sign etc. I have seen ALL the super bowls from Vll to XXVl including all the games in between. One thing has remained constant: THE FANS! We are the greatest, most loyal fans in the world. Let's not let a few bad apples spoil that legacy. I see a lot of you every sunday during the season at the various bars here in LA and have shared the agonies and victories (few lately!) and I know that we'll never suck anus like the frontrunning, bandwagon suck fans of the Cowgirls, Eagirls and Gints. We're just bored and need football bad because the NBA sucks.

Re: The Tragic Inner Life of Sports Fans
I agree, Dblanch. Most Redskins fans are loyal. From the womb to the tomb! I think football in general though is the definition of a team sport...it's dynamic and requires every player and phase of the team to play hard and be on point. I personally think the NBA and MLB are boring. I think even in highschool games communities in mass feel the sour taste of defeat and the sweetness of winning. No wonder these big guys with big names cry when they retire.
