How hard it is to be a Niner fan

1- no TV
2- “live” internet feeds don’t work
3- no radio that anyone outside of downtown Charlotte can hear
4- the local paper acts like we are a laughingstock (hard to argue right now)
5- routinely and I mean routinely have loses to teams like Monmouth

Feel free to expand the list

  1. no football
  1. horrible advertisment for games

(it is getting better though with the local commercials etc.)

Hootie, I’ll have to say that the Big O has actually done us pretty good so far. And we’re not the biggest laughingstock in Charlotte – the Panthers own that one!!!

  1. Your head basketball coach interviews for a job as the new head coach of Team USA. The University of South Alabama.
  1. Consistently lose/choke/get jobbed by the refs ('77, UNC OT, NCSU, etc) every time your team has a chance to make a big splash

“teams like Monmouth” -?

I can relate to the pain of being a Niner fan. Who here can’t? But for me it’s how we lost… not who we lost to. At least it is now.

I ****ing hate snobs, and I’m not calling you a snob, but, ALL the effing time I hear statements like your number 5 from our fans, who of coarse unconsciously have their heads up the ACC’s ass.

They do. They deny it like my homosexual Republican friend, but it’s true. And if it weren’t the ACC’s ass, it’d be something else… like say, bare with me, if we were suddenly transplanted in Birmingham… Well then our ****ed-up, class-struggling fan base would likely be all self-conscious about living in the shadow of the SEC… and every other thread would have mention/comparison involving the Crimson Tide, and it would be stupid.

I hear remnants all the time, here, at NNN. Crap like "we can’t even beat MONMOUTH!!!"
Boo Hooooo -like it’s the end of the ****ing world. MONMOUTH! As if your neighbor bought a nicer car. MONMOUTH! …as if your daughter is dating a negro. Holy ****ing MONMOUTH!!!

Reminds me of Matt what’s his face, our aweful play-by-play asshole. Against GT, his tone, it was so remarkable, so genuinely reverent when he said something like, “look at Charlotte… Hangin’ with the ‘big boys’ of the ACC.” OOOooooooooooo, look at us “hang with the big boys.” ----- What a ****ing weirdo asshole! ------ Hey Matt what’s your ****ing face… Please… why don’t you just go ahead and climb that OTHER corporate ladder you’ve had your eyes on, you know, the better one, you ****ing tool.

There are good and bad losses, good and bad having nothing to do with, say, RPI (something relatively valid). I’m not calling today’s game a good loss or a respectable loss or anything else. It sucked bad. But Jesus, basketball is five guys versus five guys. That’s it. I’d like to think anyone can beat anyone… in spite of the very real advantages the haves have over the have nots.

.

Clue: think of all the weirdo Crapel-Hole fans whose ridiculous snobbery have pissed you off, and then… and then… here’s a radical idea… CHANGE! CHANGE YOUR BEHAVIOR BECAUSE YOU DON’T WANT TO BE LIKE THEM!!! Or move along.
(Again, I’m not talking at you Hootie.)

(What the hell is a Wal-Mart fan anyway? I’ve held off asking for about 3 years now… Anyone care to explain?)

Seriously?

Wal Mart Chapel Hill fans are fans that are fans only because they find the apparel at Wal-Mart. It alludes to the fact that most of the fans don’t have the mental aptitude to be accepted to UNC-CH and have no ties but still pull for the team b/c of its success and cheap apparel.

As to the rest of your post. I agree. we have no room to put up our nose against anyone, especially with this team who is trying to find itself.

There’s one I’d like to have on tape. I saw Dinkins on some Kentucky sight, on the he-put-the-most-hurting-on-us top 50 of all time list.

My thoughts exactly, I was going to type a post similar to this but my arm is still tired from holding my portable AM radio by the bathroom window upstairs. Oh, and I happen to live in Highland Creek, less than 10 miles from campus. Not only does that suck, but it is downright embarrassing.

Excellent rant. People aren’t mad we lost today, really; I’m mad we’re jacking up threes like morons. I’m mad we can’t beat a team with FAR LESS RESOURCES than us. I’m mad Lutz can’t coach the inside game to save his life. I’m mad we put a 6’8 100 pound scrub in the game that has 0% from the field, while shooting over 10 shots this year, when our best players needed to be in the game. I’m mad Lutz doesn’t comprehend how to handle the clock in pressure situations (hint: dont jack up a 3). We’re bad, currently. Whether we turn it around or not, we are really bad at the moment. I don’t care what our record is.

I’ll admit people on here have ACC inferiority, but whatever. Walmart fans are fans that became Tar heel fans because they bought a $5 shirt at walmart; they have no ties to the university and dont know anything about the team.

You know what’s frustrating? Our fans showed up this year. They showed up before we started winning. Halton was packed. How does Lutz respond? He lays a coaching egg. Monmouth didn’t have experienced players either. Lutz was outcoached.

Oh, okay. Yeah, seriously.

I didn’t see it. Referring to those folks as “fans” may’ve thrown me off… That and the fact that most people similaryly mindlessly subscribe to some kind of label/ideal/necessary illusion that’s fed to them. And I didn’t care for the Wal-Mart reference because, to me, it sounds snobby sometimes. I don’t like Wal-Mart, but at least real people shop there, you know?

Oh, and I think Wal-mart shoppers are capable of getting into UNC-CH. thank you.

I wish Charlotte had Wal Mart fans… :unhappy:
