File under "Class"

As he was walking off the field Sunday, Gibbs tried to signal to stadium officials to stop playing "Mama, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to Be Cowboys" on the public address system. "I just think that we always want to win the right way, and when you lose, you want to lose the right way," Gibbs said. "I think we always want to be the kind of team that does that."

This is what being a Redskin means to me.

Yeah I thought it was funny but it is totally against what Gibbs preaches about character, class and respect. Still it was perfect.

Re: File under "Class"

Is this the same guy running the PA system who got the fans to chant "Ravens Suck" several years ago and brought the wrath of the NFL front office down on Danny Boy and the team?

If so, how the hell does this guy keep his job? Does he have pictures of Danny Boy or his wife in a compromising position with a barnyard animal?

I thought they canned that guy and the announcer who would goose the crowd on third down inapporpriately.

Re: File under "Class"

I loved whoever played the Gary Glitter song and turned it down so we could be like "You Suck". I won't throw batteries at another team, but I'll gladly chant and scream at them.

Classy move by Gibbs. He's always got a ton of respect for his opponents, he's definitely not one to run up the score or rub someone's nose in it. You could see the offense really let up once it got to 35-0. The defense, that's another story though.

Re: File under "Class"

The only thing I see wrong with playing that song is that Dallas will use that next year to get the team pumped up to play us. I can see them now saying remember last year how they where joking on us and playing that song. Other than that, lets all sing Mama dont let your babies grow up to be cowboys,

Re: File under "Class"

I dont know guys, we played that same song the last time we got a win against the cowboys too, and believe me, we are not the only ones that play that song when the cowboys lose....its all part of playing an away game. Its not a personal attack on any one person to play the song...
When the eagles showed the Giants kicker missing those FG's in Seattle, that was classless..when the skins play "Dont let your babys grow up to be cowboys" it is a statement that you are our rival.
I think Gibbs was being extra sensitive to it because we were kicking the crap out of them so bad...

Yea I just rewatched the game from DVR and burned it to dvd and you can hear all of us fans yellnig that, HEY....YOU SUCK!. Sure sounded great. About the cowboy song, It didnt bother me at all, I mean its all in the fun of a home game. It was also funny to see Tony Stewart getting his picture taken (and an autograph) with Dolla Billz.

Glitter ended up serving two months in prison and was placed on a child sex offender list. After his release, he went underground, turning up in Cuba and then Cambodia. He was expelled from the latter, though no charges were ever filed or any crime was alleged to have been committed, and eventually settled in Vietnam.

Wow..the guys sure likes kids...just sick.

Re: File under "Class"

I have a vague recollection of seeing a tape of Billy Kilmer and the Over The Hill Gang singing "Don't Let Your Babies ..." on the team bus in Dallas on the way to the game. (not sure of the players' names, but very sure I saw Redskins). This didn't seem any more harmful than Tom Landry's "surrounded by REdskins" commercial for a credit card company from the same time period.

On the other hand, I find "you suck" much more offensive. I take my 9 yr old to the games. He isn't allowed to use that phrase. I don't see why the team or the league encourages it.
