If you are near me on a gameday and your team is on and you claim to be a fan, know something about the team. I love talking to people about their teams so when you claim to be a fan but don't recognize the name of the starting linebacker I just asked about...you aren't really that much of a fan. Tell me up front that you aren't really that into football but root for the team and I'll keep it casual. Am I a football snob...Hell Yes.
Ding. Feel free to yell and scream, but don't start getting into x's and o's if you have no clue. Feel free to yell at someone for making a boneheaded play, miss a tackle, etc. That's fine. Just don't start getting into territory you have no clue about. So many people around here spout off and don't realize the job Thompson has done after the train wreck that he was given. The answer isn't always to pick up a free agent, especially since most are over the hill or have a ton of baggage. Also, realize that in signing over priced free agents that you may not have enough cap room to keep the players that came up in the organization and truly made it what it is.
