I thought he usually went around doing on-the-ground investigation type stuff, but Crazy Eddie was the one who managed their Internet presence.

I lived in Birmingham and was neither a fan of Alabama or Auburn, but I learned to hate Alabama fans honestly. Most collegiate fan bases have other interests in life. Bama Fan does not. Auburn Fan might go fishing one day in autumn or think about something other than how HIS team is the anoited glory of college football for all time, granted by God and Bear Bryant himself. Bama Fan thinks it's impossible to consider anything else as other than blasphemy. I watched a Bama Fan throw a full plate of food across a restaurant at a family in Tennessee colors because the dad was trying to lead a UT cheer.

To be fair, you feel sorry for a lot of them. Alabama and Tuscaloosa are not places anyone really likes or admires for anything in particular anyway. Auburn is a rural campus so they don't put on airs like Tuscaloosa tries to do, pretending they exist in the 21st Century like real cities in the USA, so Bama Fan comes from a deep-seated inferiority complex as a rule, which they horribly overcompensate by placing all their values on a game played by little boys.

It's a really pretty interesting sociological look at a backwards place in America.

Alabama fans are fans the same way rabid dogs are canines.

Somebody should stay off Twitter, but it's not the kicker.

Any of twitter Twatter folks know if saban is getting the same treatment or is he still viewed as the great one and none of this is his ffault?

Those aren't fans, those a mentally challenged peole transferring their anger of inferiority, no identity, and no life, to a kicker.

OMG, Alabama doesn't get their rightful spot in the National Championship game this year.  How will all their fans go on living?  I look forward to mass suicide in Alabama as tens of thousands of distraught fans take their own lives because they can't go on living one more day knowing that their kicker missed a bunch of field goals.  Seriously, please do it.  Let the bloody crimson tide flow through the state of Alabama.

Or, you know, you could grow up and accept the reality that you can't win then National Championship every year and it's just a game.

Nothing like twitter death threats to counter the great feelings I had about this game as an impartial observer.

A state without major professional teams to call their own is probably going to place an eerily high value on their local college teams. I haven't spent much time in Alabama so I'm no expert in the local culture there (be it between 'Bama or Auburn fans, or just in general), but I'm not exactly surprised a non-zero number of individuals there deem harassing a kicker online as a just cause.

Christ that is horrible, even in a bad loss I would never say shiat like that to a kid, the people who said that should be tracked down and mocked at their job.
 
2013-12-01 02:10:41 PM
Let's all stay off Twitter for a while.

And let's stop reprinting Tweets from random idiots and calling them articles on sports blogs.

And let's stop submitting said Tweet reprinting articles onto other sites so that they get the most exposure possible and random idiots can say shiat just as stupid as the Tweets on some other anonymous Internet forum.

Or, not I guess.

I was at an Alabama game once and I asked a fan why they get so rabid for college football.He said, with no sign of sarcasm, "We live in Alabama man, it's all we have."

Maybe next year Saban will draft a good kicker before he hits his salary cap.

Bingo. I lived near Auburn for a while and this nails it. There are no major-league pro teams in the state, so people just pick a college as their own and root for it. Of course, both Auburn and Alabama fans accuse the other fans of being bandwagoners who never attended their favored college.  One of the first questions I was asked by a local when I moved here was which of the two teams I rooted for. They looked at me like I was from another planet when I told them I didn't give a shiat about either. Of course, both Auburn and Alabama fans accuse the other fans of being bandwagoners who never attended their favored college. People at both institutions take football and this rivarly way too seriously.

I don't blame Alabama fans for taking this poorly.  Tuscaloosa looks like it got hit by a tornado right now.  They really should clean that up.  That thing hit two years ago.

Remember that texas kid who was arrested for making terroristic threats to kill kindergartners and spent a good deal of time in jail? Can't they track down these idiots and charge them with something? Its not like they're anonymous.

Wow ... Alabama fans really ARE Republicans. Republicans are the only other massive group known to have a propensity for viciously turning on their own when that person or subset screws up.

Tuscaloosa is a semi-industrial town. It's always going to look bad. There's only so much you can do when you're competing with China on rather thin margins. Alabama has a nice looking campus, though a bit obsessed with columns for my tastes. Anyone who wants to have a nice time should stick to the university grounds because things go down hill pretty quickly in much of the rest of the city.

For the life of me, I can't understand why anybody not actually on the team gets so fired up over amateur sports.

That's really thoughtful. "I'm sure he feels down. I know! We'll dump manure on his lawn and it'll be a peaceful little patch of green. Who doesn't like a nice lawn?"

Not only do the nutjobs among Bama fans hassle the kicker, they shoot each other.

Yeah, he missed a 57 yard field goal. Lets lose our minds, since it was a chip shot.  You know, if they had two brain cells to rub together, these jerks would be dangerous.

Foster didn't miss the 57-yarder.  He missed the first three.  Not that that justifies anything.  Just straightening your facts.

When Bama is negotiating the salary of this year's signing class, perhaps the student-athletes should insist upon Kevlar clothing or armor for their Hummers.

Actually, I think he missed two or three other shorter ones in the game.  So it's not the 57-yarder they are upset about but that he missed all of his attempts that night.

Crimson Tide education. This is a school that is rumored to raise tuition if the football team doesn't win a championship.

They support Alabama or Auburn football, but those who got an education from either one of those places is a Godless commie-liberal.

i never really could understand the southern/midwestern religion that is university football.  why do they people get so amp'd up about these kids? heck...the majority of the top teams come from schools that provide a subpar education, yet they are so attached to them.

That's interesting.Inferiority as a cause of their fanaticism and their unhealthy need to always win makes sense. Bama fans are pretty much the epitome the overly emotionally invested fan.  I'm sure the attitude is reinforced tremendously by the environment there, with all the fans, talk, and lack of damn near anything else to do or look forward to .  Then you have the poor children who not only have to be born in Alabama, but have to be indoctrinated with that kind of unhealthy reverence and devotion to what should just be a fun diversion. The temptation to use that vicariousness as a means of escapism has to powerful with the horrible hopelessness and depression of living in Alabama.
I really think those fans ought to get meth a shot. Probably more enjoyable and couldn't make them any more dangerous than they already are. Plus, they'll be too fidgety  to sit down for a game, so it can help them quit such a horrible habit.

Lamadin: I was at an Alabama game once and I asked a fan why they get so rabid for college football.He said, with no sign of sarcasm, "We live in Alabama man, it's all we have."


 Damn, that's some painful self-awareness. Still made me chuckle though.
