It's all about validation. They are very concerned with how others perceive them. So desperate to be accepted into the cool kids club.
Unfortunately for them, respect comes from a tradition of winning and SB titles. They don't understand that, they want instant acceptance based on a few winning seasons. Doesn't work that way.
It drives them crazy when we reference our history, but that is where respect is earned. They have no such history. They beat their chests and talk trash over regular season wins, wildcard births, division titles.... We understand those are small milestones that mean nothing without post season success.
Very well said. Once a team starts winning playoffs games consistently and super bowls you stop caring about the little things and have higher expectations. We want to win super bowls. Fans of the Browns are probably spending all of their time talking about guys like Jordan Cameron. The same goes with the Jaguars fans last year with Cecil Shorts. When you aren't a playoff team that year or a team with rich history you really focus on the little things. To me Seattle has become a legit team and it's time for their fans to start expecting playoff wins and a SB run rather than worry about 42-13 and 29-3 home wins against us. Also, time to stop worry about what other team's fans think. Stay on your own board; you don't need our validation. Same with our fans; we don't need to be over their worried about what Seattle fans think of us.
And if you do need to go on another team's boards this whole pretending to be a fan on that team just so you can say bad things about them while boosting your "real" team is such a low thing to do. I really hope our fans didn't do that to them because these last few weeks have been horrible with Seattle fans pretending to be 9ers fans to talk bad about the team and then talk up Seattle. Just something a loser would do to me... 9er fan, Seattle fan, any fan of any team.
