How strong is the word "WE" when it comes to LSU sports?
Posted by Servedinafghanistan on 5/3 at 7:37 am
When talking about LSU sports, the conversation about how WE will win this year or WE will kick Alabama's arse or whatever comes up alot. But you always have that one smartass make that comment WE? You don't play on the team. Well no shit, but I did spend money on education there so technically I am part of LSU so I consider myself part of the WE. Am I making sense? Do you consider yourself part of the WE?

I say we will win/lose we played good etc. all the time. I know I didn't actually make any contrubutions to the outcome of any game, but they are the team I root for so I don't care.

I am certainly part of the We. Tiger Nation is the We. I'm a life-long LSU fan, alumni, etc. Im thrilled when we win and hurt when we lose. I live it, so Yes Im part of the WE.

I try not to use "we" or "us" when talking about other franchises (i.e. Saints, Hornets), but I do use "we" when talking about LSU since I'm an alumnus.

I have a friend who says "we" when we're winning and "they/y'all" when we're losing. He gets last choice when extra tickets come up.

That's a great example of a bandwagon fan.

Letterman, alumni x 2, season ticket holder/TAF member, former LSU employee... Believe I earned the right to say We

I don't pay much attention to "angry for no reason" guy. He's just trying to create an argument out of thin air. He's a douche

Since the day I figured out what football was , I have been a tiger fan. Graduated Nicholls St., no culinary school at LSU I have been busted* on campus, spent money for LSU games, done charity work on that campus, I bleed Purple and Gold, Piss on Ole Miss, grill gator tail when UF came to town. I will say we or LSU when speaking/typing about LSU. I grew up on Hundred Oaks and walked to campus whenever I could growing up. I first got lucky with an LSU Golden Girl. Yea i'll keep saying we.

I am part of the we. I went to Lsu & had season tickets for about 17 years & never missed a game. Also had family play football there.

I don't say "we" or "us" because I know what those two words mean.

Since TAF considers me apart of "WE" then I consider myself as apart of "we". The post cards they send up here usually say something like "Thank you for all you do for LSU athletics".

Even though TAF is a private corporation?

You can understand some may be weary of this, correct?

I think students/alum can say we because they are actually affiliated with LSU. Season ticket holders probably have the right to say "we" as well since they contribute money yearly to LSU. Casual fans just sound silly when saying "we" though
