Doctor X wrote:The sad reality is Too Long Ago I knew of the "LA Lambs" as a devoted fan and phenomenal drum teacher called them. This was back when the Pats were still "Some Guy Shitting a Football." No one cared. Everyone in California were "Niner!" fans because . . . why not?

Being from the region, he was very devoted.

Then the Lambs moved to St. Louis. I did not know at the time it was suppose to be the Pats that moved. Thank you Mr. Kraft:

So I was actually rather happy, after they moved, they won a Super Bowl. I knew some St. Louis fans, oddly enough, and, for some reason, they became upset two years later.

They were devoted. Followed them.

Then their asshole owner moved them back. How many actual LA fans were still around?

The other guy whose videos I post--"This Week in Sports Ball"--has a serious video taking down the Lambs owner. Not just his "you could afford Morrie's Wigs," but his scumtacular treatment of "Little People" which includes fans of the team from two cities and a whole lot of people who owned land he wanted so he paid the local officials to force them out under "eminent domain."

A good friend of mine's family owned season tickets starting all the way back to 1946 when they moved to Los Angeles from Cleveland.

Personally, I find the idea of this concept silly. I am a fan of all Los Angeles teams, but they have to prove to me that they are trying to win -- looking at you Clippers -- otherwise why care? When Rams moved back here, drafted a QB, hired a competent FO and coaches, and showed everyone they intent to compete for the prize, I was more than happy to follow and make it a point to watch their games. I would go to see them live, but the stadium they plan in is horrible. It has no shade and day games happen in temperature that is in the 90's. Why subject oneself to such torture? When the new stadium is finished I might get some season tickets.

Wow.

"My Local Team is Better than YOUR Local Team!" That "living through someone else crap aside," way back when you wanted to hear music you tossed a servant in the general direction of some musicians and they played with far too much brass, teams were "local." But that is no longer. I just saw a Pats player give an interview where he "apologized" sarcastically for being from L.A. and a FLaker fan. Heck, SB Winning Pat Now Sports Talking Head with ADD Christian "SQUIRREL!" Fauria is a devoted Lakers fan as well and loves to "poke" his partner who was a long-time Celtics commentator--tried to keep Johnny Most sober "just long enough!"--by promoting "Magic" over "Biiiiiiiirrrrddd!"

They respond by reminding him that "Vrabel was better!"

Brady was a 'Niner's fan growing up.

Schilling is a devote Steelers fan, but hating, and beating, the MFYs excuses a lot of sins.

Anyways, back to your point, I think a "Local Team" has to care about the region more than as an excuse to "make money." Bob Kraft was "Local," was a season ticket holder when you could not give away tickets for another 2-12 season, and did act to prevent the team from moving. He is one guy.

The rest? Most do not give a shit. They want to make their money. Okay, I am a bit cynical. Some do care, try to contribute to the community, but it is rare. The Clippers, as you indicate, was one long "I just need to make money" from a horrible owner. The Sullivans--first owners of the Pats--might have been "local," but they were incompetent and remained such.

The Yawkeys who owned the Red Sox and were the "Curse of the Bambino" similarly did not give a shit about their fans. His and then his wife and "Trust"'s basic attitude was one of "they will come anyway."

So I do definitely agree with you regarding a team earning respect. The Pats have about 0 respect until Kraft took over. He made moves that suggested he gave an actual shit about winning rather than racking in $$. But when you consistently have a team of incompetents running a show and wanting you to pay for it, you can understand why fans give up. When Rams moved back here, drafted a QB, hired a competent FO and coaches, and showed everyone they intent to compete for the prize, I was more than happy to follow and make it a point to watch their games. I would go to see them live, but the stadium they plan in is horrible. It has no shade and day games happen in temperature that is in the 90's. Why subject oneself to such torture? When the new stadium is finished I might get some season tickets. You should have been to the old "Sullivan/Shaefer Stadium" which is first like driving into Los Angeles on a two-lane road, to sit in an open field on hard steel, and buy what your Mad Uncle pissed into a cup as your beer--available only because it owned the stadium or something equally stupid. I was there once as a Wee Spud and I still cannot feel my ass. In a strange way, I do think owners merely rent a franchise. Modell was a greedy cunt for moving the Browns. Yes . . . yes . . . yes . . . YES . . . I know, but he was still just a greedy cunt. In a rare Moment of Humanity, His Not Yet Merciful Dark Hoodie contacted one of the leaders of the "Dog Pound"--who excoriated him in a time where that required an effort given no interwebs--to apologize for not winning. To this guy's surprise, Belichick was very upset he "failed" in Cleveland and hated the idea of the move. The Current Cunt Owner of the Lambs simply wanted a team for$$$. He wanted the Pats. He could not get them. So he got the Lambs. I often joked that his "commitment to excellence" could be summarized by hiring Jeff Fischer. Anyways, as I heard too many times from Lambs Fans over beers--aside from "THE PATS CHEATING!!11!!!"--hey, sorry Marshall Faulk turned out to be a pussy--the owner made some really, really, REALLY horrendous decisions that sank the team. I guess simply moving was a way to "start over." In the smog. --J.D. Mob of the Mean: Free beanie, cattle-prod and Charley Fan Club!

For over a half-a-century, the Red Sox were run by certifiable cunts. The current ownership, while less "cuntish" certainly, do not mind smearing people and searching for scapegoats. They treated Tito Francona like shit and Chicago is still thanking them for driving away Theo Epstein. But they paid MOAR THAN The GOAT[You may purchase his book on how to Defy Nature and procreate with Super Models with twelve "easy payments" of$37.95.--Ed.] for "Kung-Fu Panda" because . . . we can sell PANDA HATS!!11!

I may have to introduce the rule I had last year that forbade a certain player to pick a Pats opponent given how well he picked.

That and check to see if Classic Trek will be on BBC!

Honest to shit, are defensive linemen the stupidest people in sports? Backed up at the 2, there's still a chance for a safety, and you let yourself get drawn offside! Season OVER!
