I think we're getting there.
I would wait one more loss...I mean...until after next game.
Nice avatar, by the way.
Although that picture sums up the way a lot of us (and many players, I imagine) FEEL, I don't think it's quite that bad. I know it's been mentioned elsewhere, but I'll mention it here: I think this team is still fighting for it, but we just don't have our **** together. With a few exceptions, I think the guys are still trying their best, in contrast to some performances we saw over the last two years where DC looked like a team going through the motions.
Save the bags for shopping, I say. I simply think this is a team that's not good enough, not a team that isn't trying.
Nah, folks would think we're MetroStar supporters if we did that.
Nah, Rotgen's teams deserved the bag not this one.
Thanks...it has Knave's tagline idea on it - Lasciate... Because once we turn this ship around, no one will want to come here.
Give it another year.
I'll say that if "The Worst Season in DC United History" does not warrant the proverbial bags on heads, then when should we pull them out?
I'll be doing this pretty soon, sans therapy, can I have an enabler?
No. It's hard to say, but be patient another year. Then we can choose paper over plastic.
How about paper for us, plastic for the team and coaches.
That's a fine proposition.
Another season like this and I will take plastic.
c'mon folks, you are not just fans, you belong to a club! and being part of a club is greater than even winning and losing! this is your club and when your club is hurting is the time when you have to stand the most true.
DC could lose the rest of the games, hell they could even reaccquire albright and i'd still come, bagless and proud.
it is the fans coming, proud (did you see Partick Thistle in the SPL this week?) not the results on the field that make the club what it is. even as crappy as we our on the pitch, we are still the best club in the league.
I'm with R&B, we are part of what makes the club. I will never be embaressed to say that I am a DC fan. Putting a bag over head is saying just that ... that you are embaressed to be a fan of the club.
Also IMHO if you put a bag over your head you are just like any and all fairweather fans out there.
I agree with R&B that we are the club, but seeing as it unlikely to get a plane over RFK again...
Hezbolt, I wasn't thinking along those lines, I was thinking that we are embarrassed by the results, not the club. I will never be embarrassed to be a fan of the greatest football club in America, I will however continue to be friggin frustrated that we suck. Fairweather fans don't drive 5 hours roundtrip.
I don't think putting a bag over your head shows you are embarrassed, but more that you are displeased. It is only the most die hard fans who do such things. Kinda like flying an airplane over.
I totally disagree with those that say expressing your unhappiness with the clubs performance makes you a "fair weather" fan.
I pay my money to go to the game, I spend my money on club merchandise, and I have practically single handedly funded the teams charity (United for DC). But if I put a bag on my head I become a "fair weather" fan.
I also object to those of you who complain about the clubs performance here but suddenly if I do it at the game I am a bad fan.
True, true ... but would you really drive that far and then put a bag on your head??
I to will continue to be depressed and frustrated on the topic of DC because of the results, and fortunately not the play on the field we have this year.
We are more creative than putting bags over our heads! At the end of last season, some great fans got together and had a plane fly over the stadium! A plane! You can't tell me that fans of other teams would do that! At the same game, there were quite a few fans wearing Orange Traffic Cones on their heads! Again, a statement based on a DC United 'legend and lore'. Much better than bags on our heads!
Maybe for the Metro's game, if we are out of the playoff race, we can all wear fake doggie poop on our heads, cerebrally relating that we think our team's front office has shite for brains.
Nah, that wouldn't work. The MetroPuke fans would think it was a tribute to Petke.
