    I am not a big fan of the attention whores sprinkled throughout NFL stadiums. We've all seen them, those fans who face paint, dress up in some kind of special costume, or show up with the D and the fence. Those sad souls who feel like everyone is at the game to see them, and desperately hope they show up on TV so they can brag to all of their friends. Some people may love these guys, but I find them sad and annoying.

    Anyway, I tune in to see the Hall of Fame inductions today, and there they are. Those f*cking transvestite pigs who cannot be escaped while watching any Redskins home game. Regardless of the fact that we all know they are there from seeing them on EVERY OTHER previous Redskins broadcast, the director will show them to us at least once. So of course we get to see them today at the inductions, as well as at least one other face painted attention whore.

    I guess it would have killed these guys to just show up in normal dress to honor their guys. But they had to make sure that on the inductees' special day, that they got their share of the spotlight too. :tdown:

    Attention Whores

    I am not a big fan of FUN throughout NFL stadiums. We've all seen them, those fans who SHOW UP TO SUPPORT THEIR TEAM. Those sad souls who want to ACTUALLY ADD SOME FUN TO GAME DAY. Some people may ENJOY GAME DAY BUT GAME DAY ISN'T SUPPOSE TO BE FUN.

    Anyway, I tune in to see the Hall of Fame inductions today, and there they are. Those f*cking transvestite pigs who cannot be escaped while watching any Redskins home game. AS STUPID AS THAT IMAGE IS, I CAN'T HElP BUT WONDER WHY EVERYBODY ELSE DIDN'T DIDN'T CRY ABOUT IT AS HARD AS I DID. Regardless of the fact that we all know they are there from seeing them on EVERY OTHER previous Redskins broadcast, the director will show them to us at least once. So of course we get to see them today at the inductions (ISN'T THAT TERRIBLE?), as well as at least one other face painted attention whore THAT MADE ME WANT TO CRY.

    I guess it would have killed these guys to just show up in normal dress to honor their guys AFTER ALL, HOF ISN'T SUPPOSE TO BE FUN EITHER. But they had to make sure that on the inductees' special day, that they got their share of the spotlight too. HOW HORRIBLE!!!

    P.S. I'm glad that I have a shoulder to cry on. Thank you, RTL!!!

    Attention Whores

    So you have a problem with people showing up for games in face paint when you proudly admit to be a Star Wars and Lord of the Rings geek?
    Not to mention, you had your picture taken with somebody in a Darth Vader and Chabaca costume on game day.
    THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK!!!

    B4L...

    Different strokes for different folks. Please stop attacking others because you don't like a posted opinion. RTL likes Star Wars and Lord of the Rings... So what? So do I. I love good stories. Is that bad?

    You like freaky looking contact lenses. Your right, run with it man, be you.

    Different strokes.

    Please do not try and silence those you disagree with. Don't Allcap attack their post to try and prove your point, because that stuff just shuts down discussions and takes it right to a fight. (Remember I am an expert on that, as last season I was banned boy)....

    OK so maybe you do not agree with SL, and RTL. Good! If everyone agreed it would be a boring place. But they are still welcome to express their opinion are they not?

    You are as well, but I only suggest the means of expressing your opinion could have been a bit different if you wanted to encourage a dialog.

    Ease up a bit, if you are all about fun, then let your actions show it... Lets partay like it is the year of the BOLT and put last season's postal angst behind us all!:abq1:

    Just the .0002 cents worth of a non-moderator poster type person with an opinion....

    Way to completely miss the point of my original post!

    The Hall of Fame induction ceremony and festivities are to honor the INDUCTEES. The weekend is about the INDUCTEES, yet these fans are still so starved for attention that they have to make sure it's at least partially about them.

    To be fair to B4L, the entire premise of this thread is a pseudo attack on a group of fans.

    The stated opinion that B4L is disagreeing with is an opinion that people who dress up in costumes or bring D-Fense signs to a football game are attention whores. (as opposed to going further than savage lizard and RTL like to go to show support for the team.)

    I understand the point of view. The initial posts did not attack any one person. B4L's did IMO.

    Fact of the matter is, if it is within the rules, people have to deal with it. Like it or not, if an 'attention whore' isn't breaking rules, then they are good.

    But everyone can post their opinions as I said. It is the manner in which they post it that is in question IMO.

    Yeah, because there is no fun at an NFL game unless there are a bunch of "look at me" guys running around. As to your assertion that those people "add some fun to game day" I guess our opinions differ. I personally go to watch the game, that's my fun. All the other **** is just extraneous noise.

    As for "crying" this is a forum isn't it? People post about various things, some agree, some don't. Crying would be something akin to say...non-stop posting of the same **** over and over about how much you hate the coach or something.

    And yeah, I thought it was terrible, or at least in very poor taste that alleged fans would do things to try to take some of the attention away from the TRUE reason why the game is fun, THE PLAYERS. Of course, that like pretty much anything I post on this forum is MY OPINION.

    They're both verbally attacking fans.

    The only difference is, B4L is attacking an individual fan who is actually present on the forums.

    I don't really see a difference between the two. :icon_shrug:

    Jesus H. Christ.

    I was agreeing that the spotlight should have been focused on the players being inducted not the fans and now I gotta read all your (not just you Leo) posts quoting B4L. I mean, wtf is that? I didn't say a damn thing to B4L, nor have I since I put him on mr ignore list to avoid having to deal with him.

    I know they are, are you just not hearing me?

    As lame as I find that type of thing in general (as opposed to B4L who evidently digs it), it just seems to me that maybe for one day they could still be Redskins fans without trying to make it about themselves. Just be there for Darrell Green and Art Monk as fans. Because as far as I can tell, the only reason to pack all your transvestite pig costumes and spend a whole bunch of time getting dressed up, is so that you can make sure you end up on camera and get noticed. If you are there to see your inductees, and honor them, you can do that in regular clothes.

    I'm making assumptions based on what I'm reading in the first post.

    If I'm misinterpreting it (although it seems pretty clear to me what SL is trying to state) then he can come in and further elaborate on what he meant.

    How is their dressing up taking away from Monk being inducted?
