May I ask questions?
For a decade there's something I've noticed prevalent on message board sites. Fans of an NFL team with a history of losing tend to congregate together.
From the old Prodigy Classic's boards to this one, probably visiting in ten years a geusstimated two dozen or more sites, fans of the Chargers, Bengals, Falcons and Saints seem to find a niche in which they are most comfortable posting.
There's one sight that's completely void of members except a bunch of Bengals fans and in another forum, there's over,...3000 Saints fans!,...whom post in one forum! Can you imagine trying to keep up with that volume of posts? And that's the extent of that site's activity.
On another site that has a couple Redskins fans, both mods, a Jets fan and a Colts fan,...and then there's over 400 Chargers fans that post in just one forum, their forum.
Falcons fans are just the same.
The AJC has a lot of posting traffic as does the Falcons website's boards. Ummm,...take note,...you can't post anything negative about the Falcons on their website's boards,...it'll disappear.
But if you go to the myriad of MB sites on the web, you'll see a void of posts in their Falcons forums. And it's not just the Falcons forums that are void of activity, that's not the point. Point being that very few Falcons fans, like the other fans mentioned, tend to avoid striking it out on their own on boards and stay safe at the usual watering hole,...just like all those Saints fans.
Maybe we represent a small segment of the NFL fans population. Maybe all those Cowboys, Niners, Packers, Patriots, Steelers, Eagles and Raiders fans that seem to saturate most MBs outnumber us, skewing things.
Answer these two questions honestly please,...have you ever been, in any way even momentarily,...embarrassed to be known a Falcons fan?
Do you avoid other MB sites because of the attacks that always seem to come from other NFL fans? You know, the Vick this, the Vick that stuff?
