How to be a fan
« on: February 10, 2013, 01:53:14 PM »
How can one be a fan?
Is one just supposed to root their team on?

For example, I don't like when people say "I HATE KOBE, HE'S A FAKER AND IS A BAD PLAYER!!" because it's obviously false. You have to respect a player if he plays good no matter what team he's on!

I also don't like "Let's trade Jeff Green and Jason Collins for Kevin Durant!" because that's just unreasonable and you're just being way too Celtic-biased.

I don't think being such a biased fan is good at all, sure we want our team to win, but we can't say "Miami? Easy blowout 173-43 Celtics!" because that's just.... not right! It would suck if some other fan said "Jeff Green sucks, heart surgery is nothing, he's just a #$@##$% #$@^$ waste of money!" because that's inconsiderate.

I think we should all respect the Celtics and love them the way we do, but respect OTHER players and teams as well even if it's Miami/the Lakers...

Someone should write a book, The Ethics of Sports

There is no one correct way to be a fan. Each person has there own way, and if you enjoy a particular sport/team/player, that's all that matters.

Aren't you the guy who said Jeff Green would be a top five SF?

Would a mod lock this thread, please?
