In Response to: The Streak Continues
I was going to post this as a reply to Seth’s post below, but I think I’d rather get it on the front page.
8-8 and asking if people are still loyal Falcons fans? That is sad, and pretty indicative of what the rest of the nation thinks of Atlanta sports fans.
Sure, watching a team squander their potential and tank the season after a hot start is disappointing. But to ask if fans will still buy tickets to next year’s games? Wow.
There’s a lot of other teams out there with more loyal fans who have had to put up with a lot more than an over-rated quarterback and unimaginative play-calling. Do you think Green Bay fans are ready to abandon the Packers after they stunk it up this year? Or Saints fans after their miserable season?
Suck it up, Atlanta. Support your teams in the good times and bad times. And I would hardly call never winning two back to back seasons “the worst streak in all of professional sports”…
