Not trying to jump on you, but you haven't noticed of all the years you've been a fan that it's commonly used among rival fans?

It's like a Mets fan calling them the "Mutts" or a Red Sox fan calling them the "Red Sux".
i think people like libertys and me - pre-internet fans - just didn't grow up hearing what other fans called the rangers. so we never developed a sensitivity to it. and i know 'rags' sounds bad in a certain context, but it also can just be an abbreviation. 'sux' is a little more obviously negative. i personally take no issue with 'rags' if it's not meant to be derogatory.
