membengal Posted November 26, 2010 Report Share Posted November 26, 2010 So...I turn 40 in two weeks. Which is to say, I am nearly the same age as my cursed favorite NFL team. I remember following them since 1975 (when I was four). I have seen all the lows, so many lows, and the few highs. And I have never wavered in my support. Not even during the 90s and early 00s. But, finally, they have succeeded in beating me down. Not only do I not care anymore, I don't see any reason to care at any point in the near future either. Given the labor uncertainty, any coaching changes will be, per usual, half-hearted and half-measures, and do no good. No player changes of note are on the horizon, or, if they are, they will be replaced with talent like Jeff Query. Yes, I remember those days. Bad days. But the upcoming ones? They look worse.And, for the first time, I am thinking that I may be at a point of giving this team up. There may really be only so much I can take.Hell, I didn't even watch it last night. Saw no reason to. And if I, an ultimate die hard am at this point, I cannot imagine how decimated the fanbase is in the process of becoming. I have always assumed that the team would outlive Mike Brown's incompetence, but now? Now I am not so sure.Whole thing just makes me sad.
