Redskin Fan's POV
Tue Jan 01, 2013 7:57 am
  • After visiting the Redskin fans forums, I keep finding myself chuckling at what they're saying, so I thought I'd start a thread to share for those who don't wonder over. If anyone else has good one's, please share. This one struck my funny bone...


    I do find it HILARIOUS that every few years that go by and the Redskins decide to make the playoffs, oh guess what the Seahawks up and decided they want to get off the lazy chair and squeeze in also. Like a distant cousin who doesn't join the marathon until you do, just to annoy you.

    But not this time

    In essence it feels almost like this is our 8th playoff game in a row this season...especially since we got no help from the Lions or Packers this past weekend. We had to fight tooth and nail to get where we are...which makes me proud.

    it was more a point to the quote in the OP, we don't just "up and squeeze in whenever the Redskins decide to", we've made it 7 times in the past 10 years, and it just so happens the 3 times the Redskins have made it they've faced us.

  • We have a more than capable squad; the time for being nervous is over. Hell we been nervous every week since we were 3-6. Now its just time to believe that we will pull it out. I love when games are personal, you play harder. Seattle has no wrs or TE which should do wonders for our D ie focusing on 2 keys. ( Lynch/Wilson). We can beat these guys. We will beat these guys... HTTR


    Apparently we have "no wrs or TE".

  • It depends on who wins in Green Bay. If GB wins we play Atlanta as the lowest seed still alive. If Vikes win we go to SF as the higher seed. Seattle is the only team that knows 100% who they will play if they win because they are the 6 seed.


    This guy doesn't even know the playoff seeding.

  • We squeezed in to the playoffs?

    There are only 2 teams in the NFC that have a better record than we do and only 1 that has more wins than we do.

    The Redskins on the other hand came down to a win and your in, lose and your out, final game scenario.

    Who squeezed in again?

  • You still don't get the distinction. One call is not debatable because it has been defined as the wrong call and had a direct, definable outcome on the score and the outcome of the game.

    The other is a call that is subjective in whether is was called correct or not and only pure speculation can be applied to what happens after it if it actually were not called the way it was.

    Surely you're not that obtuse.

  • I think thats fair for Seahawk fans to say. I have watched your team demolish the last 3 out of 4 opponents, and I'm very thankful we are not playing in your house. These 2 teams are the hottest in the NFC right now, and I think the only thing that sets these 2 teams apart will be where this game is played. This is a game that looks like the 12th man will be the MVP.


    To be fair, here's a more educated post.

    For the record, I am not registered there. There's no point in trying to have a discussion over there.

    He must be starting from game 1 and going sequentially.

    yup those seahawks been stalkin the skinnies hard! lol


    sheesh, this might be a good game after all? I'm thinking many a skins fans are going to get lost on their way to the game this sunday... :shock:

    pass it on, hey Redskins fans, the game is Sunday, not Saturday, not Monday, Sunday... no excuses... :P

  • You guys really want to understand Redskins fans' points of view? It has to do with a lot more than just us beating them in the playoffs. At both games, a bunch of their fans were treated like shit, having beer and smoke bombs thrown at them among other things. At the second game, some Seahawk fans said some really nasty things about Sean Taylor to Redskins fans who were still grieving. And they don't like being called racist.

    It doesn't matter to them what the majority of Seahawk fans are like, if their interactions with Seahawk fans are overwhelmingly negative.

    They have contempt for us as a fan base, more than any other team including the Cowboys. And they don't give a crap about what we think, just like we don't give a crap about what they think.


    I'm not saying anybody has to change their ways, or anything like that. But if you want to understand Redskins fans' POV, that is some important background.
    49ers webzone: Win or lose, i hope you injure Sherman. Like a serious career ending injury. I don't want him to get paid.
    49ers webzone: noise should not be the overwhelming reason a team is favored. they need to spray noise-damping foam onto the ceiling of that place.

  • So because a couple fans are "allegedly" rude to you, you are rude to an entire fanbase.

    With that said you show us well with your comments on that hilarious "extreme" board. But their general attitude towards other fans is pretty bad.

    I honestly just can't give them the benefit of the doubt. Never trust a fanatic (not you, them).

  • so a little rough housing at the game equates to Seattle stalking the Redskins?

    wow, I'm a closet skins fan, wont be wearing my Skins shirt on Sunday but that wont change the fact the Hawks have played in 11 post season games since 2000 and the Skinnies have played an astronomical 3 since 2000, just cuz they lost 2 of those games to the Seahawks doesn't mean they're being stalked..

    also people that assault others anywhere any time should be jailed and that doesn't mean every Seahawks fan is a criminal, good grief is this the best drama you guys can come up with?

    We are getting the same disrespect with regard to how great your defense is, and you getting 5th in the ESPN poll while we were only 8th. Especially since we did beat you last year, in Seattle.

    You beat us because Tarvaris couldn't match Rex Grossman w/ the game on the line. I trust Russell Wilson to be able to go throw for throw with Bob Griffin.

    Fair enough, but between last year and this year you are talking about two totally different teams. The Seahawks are should be rated higher as they have a better defense, and statistically that can make a big difference in the playoffs, especially with teams going on the road.

    Last year is not this year's team. You should be ranked lower in the power rankings this year because you didn't have as strong as season as we have had this year.

  • Yeah, the Redskins offense, if you take the whole year's stats, has been slightly better than the Seahawks. If you look at the last chunk of games, it appears the Seahawks have edged them out. Either way, even if we concede offense to the Skins, the difference between the defenses is not slight. The Seahawks straight up have a very significantly better defense. They allow 9 points less a game than the Redskins.

    I honestly just can't give them the benefit of the doubt. Never trust a fanatic (not you, them).

    Actually, this is exactly what I'm talking about. As long as you view what happened as "a couple of fans" being "'allegedly' rude", and dismiss it out of hand, you are never going to get why they all seem to be so pissed at us.

    The "alleged" rudeness during the 2005 divisional game was recorded with photos, and pretty much everyone on the board (including me -- yes, I have been a member there that long) saw them. There were personal accounts of people (women) being intimidated or threatened. IIRC a lot of Redskins-decorated cars were vandalized in the parking lot. Then two years later, when most Redskins fans were still hurting over the loss of Sean Taylor, a lot of people rubbed their noses in it, and said some really nasty, hurtful, even racist things about him. And the news spread on their board, just like it does here.

    Now, I'm guessing that most people here on this board would recognize the behavior in these episodes was "classless" if not worse. Unfortunately, we have all been painted with that broad brush.

    With that said you show us well with your comments on that hilarious "extreme" board. But their general attitude towards other fans is pretty bad.

    I honestly just can't give them the benefit of the doubt. Never trust a fanatic (not you, them).

    Actually, this is exactly what I'm talking about. As long as you view what happened as "a couple of fans" being "'allegedly' rude", and dismiss it out of hand, you are never going to get why they all seem to be so pissed at us.

    The "alleged" rudeness during the 2005 divisional game was recorded with photos, and pretty much everyone on the board (including me -- yes, I have been a member there that long) saw them. There were personal accounts of people (women) being intimidated or threatened. IIRC a lot of Redskins-decorated cars were vandalized in the parking lot. Then two years later, when most Redskins fans were still hurting over the loss of Sean Taylor, a lot of people rubbed their noses in it, and said some really nasty, hurtful, even racist things about him. And the news spread on their board, just like it does here.

    Now, I'm guessing that most people here on this board would recognize the behavior in these episodes was "classless" if not worse. Unfortunately, we have all been painted with that broad brush. Redskins fans can intellectually acknowledge that of course Seahawks fans consists of all types, and that there are idiots in every crowd, including theirs. But emotionally, they default to the position that we are classless, and therefore have little tolerance for Seahawks fans going to their board and engaging in what might otherwise be regarded as normal smack talk.

    While those actions are despicable, it happens everywhere. Every fanbase has ~1% idiots (49ers are upwards of 40% based on my calculations)

    Me and my girlfriend were harassed at a Denver game a few years back (which I didn't mind but she hated it). And I had always heard mostly good stories about Broncos fans. Point is, it's prevalent everywhere. It's unfortunate anyone has to be a moron at the game, but it happens with every fan base. Skins fans holding a grudge over a few loudmouths is ridiculous. Be mad at us for the final score, but at least admit that's why you're angry.

    It would be ridiculous, if that's all it was. Was your car vandalized in Denver? Was your girlfriend groped at the game? If she had been, would it make a difference in your opinion?

    Our 1% made a 40% impression. They are mad about losing those playoff games, but that isn't why the anger is visceral.

  • For me it's not "why" you react, it's how you react that defines class. I appreciate you giving me the background to understand the behaviour. If it was me at the receiving end of that I would be angry. It's still no excuse. I'm not saying saintly "turn the other cheek", and honestly if that's how they want to play, more power to them, but they will get no sympathy from me, I did none of things you described.

    By the way, I'm not attacking you for defending them, I understand you are trying to close some wounds here. There was a couple guys I like over on that forum, well one guy, but I wasn't on for very long.

    BT, I call BS. If they won that game in January 2008, they would be a lot different about this. Our 1% made a 99% impression, and you are the only one grandfathered in. And that is because you get on with one of their pissy mods. I read your post over there, and I thought it was pandering to them. Which is what they want. So good for you.

    We are getting the same disrespect with regard to how great your defense is, and you getting 5th in the ESPN poll while we were only 8th. Especially since we did beat you last year, in Seattle.

    Believe it or not, I'm not defending them, or trying to close any wounds. I'm merely trying to explain them.

    If your theory is correct, then if they win this game, that will soften their attitudes toward us. (I kinda doubt it.)

    Scottemojo wrote:and you are the only one grandfathered in. And that is because you get on with one of their pissy mods. I read your post over there, and I thought it was pandering to them. Which is what they want. So good for you.

    For those who haven't seen it, here it is:

    I honestly have no idea why more people don't get it -- when I come here, I am a visitor in your home. The same is true for any opposing team's forum I visit. While I am prepared to stick up for myself if need be, it is not my job to change anybody's mind, or beat them about the head and shoulders with the "truth". The most I expect to do in a conflict of football opinions is to show that the opposing side of the argument has validity, and isn't just the product of a latte-lubed nut-bag.

    And I have never understood people who play the game "Taunt the Mods". Seriously, when I see that happening (and it happens everywhere), I get a game show voice going in my head.

    "And now for another edition of Taunt the Mods! Today's contestant is a visitor from Seattle. Tony?"
    "Thanks, Bob. Contestant, what is your name?"
    "BlueTalon."
    "What brings you here today?"
    "Well, Tony, I'm a true believer in the Seahawks, and I'm out to spread the good news."
    "And you're here to play Taunt the Mods?"
    "Yes, Tony. People are idiots, and mods are no exception. They need to be aware that the 1st Amendment protects my right to be an ass on the internet, and I have found ridicule to be a very useful tool in my quest."
    "And there you have it, Bob. We'll begin the first round after these messages..."


    I take that approach at every opposition forum I visit (i.e., I'm a visitor in their home). There's nothing panderish about that -- we expect and demand it from fans of other teams who visit here. And I really don't get it when people don't get it.

    I also don't get it when people seem to test the limits with mods. I have seen it happen here a lot. You haven't?

    Using myself as the example in the game-show is just a literary device, though I can see why you might consider it pandering.

  • Hey Hawk fans,

    I appreciate Talon trying to explain our view to you all. You guys might recognize me from the Extremeskins board. I will admit I'm one of the fans who does take some(possible understatement) issue with Hawk fans. That comes from the 05 and 07 games. First, the vandalism of Redskin cars. Second, Sean Taylor jersey with bullet holes and signs with not just racial comment about Taylor but also comments about how happy Hawk fans are he's dead. (Keep in mind Taylor was one of our players we watched grow up from a slightly immature player to a father who died protecting his son and girlfriend. His kid absolutely changed his life. Redskin fans are still broken about his death to this day. Not kidding.)

    My only other issue is the fake punts and stuff to run up the scores. That's a different discussion though. The fact is when fans attack one of the most sensitive topics for Redskin fans combined with the vandalism of our cars we're gonna have a bad impression of your fans. Now we know every fanbase has it's jerks. I know we have them as does any team. However, you must understand it doesn't exactly look good when our rivals weren't even taking shots at Taylor's death. In fact they were the first to call for the helmet number tribute. When you throw this in with the beer dumping and such on our fans at games perhaps its easier to understand why we don't have a positive view of Seahawk fans.

    Watch those games. We didn't run up the score. We pulled the starters FOUR MINUTES into the second half against Arizona. We scored just ONE touchdown on offense in the second half against the Bills (3 minutes into the second half, after Fitzpatrick threw a pick and we started on the Bills 20 yard line). What more do you want us to do other than start playing Leroy Hill at QB and Matt Flynn as our pass rusher??

    The whole basis of the "running up the score" appears to have come from 2 plays

    We threw the ball on 4th and 23rd over taking a field goal. We could have added points but the whole point is we're winning by a comfortable margin so we can try out things we wouldn't usually get the opportunity to try.

    When IS the best time to try a fake punt? Once the score gets to that stage preseason rules apply - you pull your starters and you have your team try out the fun stuff against real opposition to see how well they come off.

  • To our own guys.

    I'm one of the few moderators that was around in 05 and can tell you it was miserable with fans from other teams bashing. But Riggo has been around here off and on for several years and Richmond whom I have just exchanged emails with are like most of us. Fans of football teams

    I see us and the Skins very much alike and truly enjoy the give and take between such fans as them and our people. We learn more about the teams that way that we ever will saying "oh huh, youse guys suck". lol

    And we learn a lot about the people themselves. Thanks from this moderator for coming here to talk football, that's what we're all about. And if some of our people or some of your get out of line they will be equally gone.

    but I don't see that happening here.

    Les

    Forgot to add one thing we learned then was not to allow new member on the weekend of the game for playoffs
