I way have it made and have no clue about the sport that I obsess about.
Apparently, I waist my money on the Kings as well. I always take my money, place it on my hip and then shake violently when I pay for my tickets...always waisting my money on the Kings.
By the way, these guys work their ***** off for upwards of $7 million a year, NOT FOR MY ENTERTAINMENT.
Really now, did Jack Johnson take a discount because he said that he works his ass off partially for my entertainment? "Hey Deano, I'd usually ask for $6MM per season but **** if I don't work my ass for BigKing up in 306!! His joy is worth $1.5MM so lets sign for less!!!
I'll say it again...those who aren't here every single game are always the ones who are quick to ***** about the crowd. Come on down then so all you *******s can cheer your crazy head off when there are 3 shots after 30 minutes.
That smacks of elitist b.s. "Those who aren't here every single game" blah blah blah. I had season seats and went to everything that you could possibly go to when I did but that didn't give me any right or authority to say anything about any other fan who didn't have the same opportunity.
Also I don't remember anyone saying that you should be cheering your crazy head off when they had 3 shots after 30 minutes, only that it is wrong to expect anything better to happen when you do. I also think that there is a massive difference between professional sports and any other career.
You seem to be saying that since someone is paid to play a game that they don't care at all about the environment that they play in or that they only do so for the money. If that is the case then why go see them at all and more to the point why boo or cheer or express any other emotion? I mean if all they are in it for is the money then you are really only cheering and or booing for yourself, right?
To me it does matter. To my way of thinking it is the same as you going to work and having everyone around you telling you how much you suck when you are doing your best to try and get things right 100% of the time.
YOU SUCK!!! DO YOUR JOB PERFECTLY YOU BUM!!! That's not gonna make me try harder. If its one or two people who cares but when its the mass of people who are supposed to be your fans, your extra man doing it there is no way that it is going to do anything but make you tune them out at best.
