    Jim O'Brien could've ran off even the most hard core of fans. Hard to sit thru his coaching and lack of firing and not start to question if you care more about the team than the organization itself.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    Geez can't say anything around here without green font or a winking smiley. I'm a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan so I know a little bit about being called a bandwagon fan...even though I'm not....I was just messing around.

    I think Haywoode was trying to make a sarcastic funny.

    FYP.

    As much as I hated JoB, he never came as close as Troy Murphy did to running me off as a fan of the team.

    All you had to do with witches is either drop a house on them or throw a bucket of water at them.....

    The flying monkeys move too fast to drop a house on them, and water don't faze em either!

    I've always tried to make a clear distinction between bandwagon fans, and fairweather fans...Bandwagon means supporting a team from some other city, which I despise. Fairweather generally means people hate watching a bad product. I understand it, and frankly, they're probably a lot smarter than us idiots who've watched a lot of bad basketball over the years.

    I can definitely admit there were many occasions I didn't watch games during the dark ages. I would still get the final scores from ESPN texts, and occasionally check the box score or highlights if we did well. Always read this site obviously. However, when the team sucks, or at least the team being out there sucks, and you have to watch on a crappy internet feed when you should be doing homework, I am not going to go out of my way to watch games. I certainly don't blame you for not paying to go to games. Obviously this was a little bit of an overreaction though.

    Props for admitting it though.

    Dude you weren't done. You were saving money. My picture was on referring to the high-low times of the NBA and how that can drive us crazy. Sorry if you were offended. I'm an idiot.

    People can't help where there parents are from and what they raise them to be. My mother and uncles were all born and raised in Dallas, and my mother happened to move up to Indiana in high school to be with her mom.

    Don't want to take this off topic...but that movie is really not as "bad" as people who haven't seen it think. Heath Ledger acted his *** off (I honestly think it was his best performance, better than the Joker IMO).

    Now back on topic. For those calling GrangerRanger a bandwagon fan: Wouldn't he have jumped off the bandwagon much sooner than last year if he was a bandwagon fan?
    Ledger was clearly better in Broke back mountain. I thought his joker performance was way over the top. If he hadn't tragically passed away, no chance he wins the Oscar

    I dunno, man. The flying monkeys can poop on you from the air. That's pretty dastardly.
