Why is our division full of punk teams? - keithbrooking56 - 10-01-2012 08:57 AM
I honestly am not trying to come across as a completely biased homer but surely other people have noticed this over the years. The other teams in our division are chock full of "me first" prima donna players that seem to love nothing more than rubbing it our faces whenever they have a good play.
I look at our team and I don't see us returning the favor. The most you'll see from us is Roddy occasionally running his mouth with a corner or Weatherspoon's little "nom nom nom" routine with his spoon. Our team is to a fault classy and respectful of the opposing team and yet I almost never see that returned our way.
Why is that? Is there something going on during the games that we as fans just don't see that leads to this? I remember pre-Sean Payton we had a very respectful rivalry with the Saints. We never seem to have a good rivalry with the Bucs and the Panthers and their fans seem to go to no end to be rude or unsportsmanlike.
I just don't get it. Our team seems to make a point out of it doing things the "Falcon way" and yet our division rivals seem to do anything they can to throw it back in our faces.

A team reflects its owner. Our owner is the definition of classy.

Well they aren't going to have a whole lot to throw back into our faces this year. The Falcons might break the NFL record for biggest margin of victory in a division.

I hate the Saints but I don't see them as a me-first team, they are definitely punk bitches but you don't play with Drew Brees if you have to have the ball every play.

The panties sure did enough to piss off even Matt (see his outburst at the end of the game), so I think it was even worse than we saw. Seems the team definitely did not like their opponents actions at the end of the day, and will likely be looking to smack them around in Charlotte later this year!
