NFL Fans Never Sell Your Tickets If Your Team is Playing the Shittsburgh Squealers

I watched the Washington Deadskins game against the Shittsburgh Squealers and felt bad for the Deadskirts fans last night. A very unusual situation because the Deadskins deserve every bad thing that happens to them but not all those piss yellow jerseys in the stands last night.  As usual a stadium, in this case FedEx Field in D.C., which is relatively close to Shittsburgh was over run with a large amount of Squealers fans.

As a Ravens fan I run into this problem regularly.  Squealers fans are dedicated I’ll give them that and they travel to see their team.  As a matter of fact I think that’s great.  However for the home team it is disappointing to see large amounts of Squealers fans cheer the visiting team in your house.

slide1This problem could be fixed easily.  If you’re playing the Shittsburgh Squealers at home don’t sell your tickets. NOT TO ANYBODY FOR ANY REASON. Even if you can’t go it is better to eat the ticket price than have Squealers fans in your seats.  That’s the only way to ensure that your stadium isn’t looking piss yellow on game day.

Now your Shittsburgh Squealer fan comes in two varieties.  The good kind is the die hard unemployed Shittsburghin who luckily scores some tickets to a local game and goes to cheer their team on.

The other and by far the worst is the transplant traitor.  This is a Squealers fan who left Shittsburgh for a number of reasons but usually because the city is historically economically depressed and the person can’t get a job.  This person assimilates into his new community usually living until retirement even cheering for the home team.  But when the Squealers come to play they break out their piss yellow jersey and go the game cheering for the Squealers.  If you talk to one of these “Manchurian” fans they’ll aways give you some line like this; “I grew up in Shittsburgh as a kid, bla bla bla.”  Come on get over it you moved away 20 years ago.

So what is the point: NFL fans and ticket holders if you’re playing the Shittsburgh Squealers at home don’t sell your tickets. NOT TO ANYBODY FOR ANY REASON.

Still Wacco for Flacco

Well Baltimore Ravens fans are still “Wacco for Flacco.”  Flacco has certainly improved with each game this season.  He has proven his value as a number One draft pick.  Today’s victory over a division rival, the pumpkins ,i.e. the Brownies, was huge!! Again Flacco’s play along with those of many others contributed to this victory.

The Ravens over the years I’ve been a season ticket holder haven’t had the ability to usually score 21 points or more let alone come from a 14 point deficit to win. Usually when the opponent scores 17 points or more the Raven lose.  However in this game the Ravens defense gave up more points than they typically do.  The D did however in the second half consistently force the pumpkins into 3 and outs.  The O then scored 17 unanswered points to take the lead and secure the win.  The D then capped it off with an interception by LB Suggs that was returned for a TD.

Finally lets put an end to this BS “Suggs” package.  The “Suggs” package and the Miami “Wildcat” are just gadget plays.  These type of plays work occasionally if never used.  But when teams game plan for them like the Ravens did against Miami or the Brownies did against the Ravens today they don’t do anything.  Although it was fun watching the Smith to Flacco 43-yard play I cringed watching the Oakland linebaker dive on Flacco after the play.  Yes I know any player can get hurt on any play in the NFL.  Still why do want to increase the risk of injury to your QB?  Remember when the NY football Giants put CB Jason Seahorn back to return punts?

Joe Flacco is the Ravens QB for the foreseeable future.  He’s earned it by proving it on the field on game day.  He’s getting better each game. All you Smith fans need to get over it and move on.  Smith is not starter QB material in the NFL.  If he was the Ravens would never have drafted Flacco to begin with.

I can’t say enough about the running attack that both Ray Rice and LeRon McClain bring to the Ravens. Congrats to both Rice and McClain; what a huge game!!!!!!  That Rice 60-yard run broke the Brownies back and the McClain steam roller over the Brownie’s safety Sean Jones got the Ravens back in the game.
