Am I a NegaTiger?



I was born in 1976 so I grew up on Star Wars. The first time I can remember going to the movies was to see Return of the Jedi. I had all the Star Wars toys and my prized possession was the Millennium Falcon. I remember having light saber fights with my cousins for hours on end. However, I cannot stand the prequels and have only seen them once apiece and refuse to watch them again. I do not enjoy them. I still watch the originals from time to time and I enjoy them. Does this mean that I am not a Star Wars fan?

This story is very analogous to my LSU fandom. For instance we were 7-4-1 in 1995 and finished with a win in the Independence Bowl. We lost the first game of the season to aTm, a game in which Kevin Faulk received his first carries as a Tiger. The Tigers played hard and fought throughout but came up short. Two weeks later we had the Bring Back the Magic game against Auburn and for the first time in my life I witnessed something that I had only previously read about; the magic of Tiger Stadium on a Saturday Night in Death Valley.

I had sat though some terrible games in the CH era and I can remember the excitement and joy I found in the 1995 season. Was it Dinardo or Faulk that generated the excitement? I don't think it was either one specifically. I think it was seeing the rebirth of a powerful program right before my eyes. I was front and center to witness all of it right in the middle of the student section. it took awhile for us to get to the top and Dinardo and Faulk were both gone by then but they put down the roots.

I swore to myself back then that I would never, ever miss a home game in Tiger Stadium for the rest of my life. I even went to the '96 'Bama game a few days after having major surgery. I have been to a lot of road games and most of the bowl games and SEC Championships. I have spent many thousands of dollars and many hours on the road. I have celebrated with some of you on the field at TS after some key victories. I have celebrated with you in Atlanta and cried with you in Orlando.

I am telling you all of this because I am conflicted. Like with my passion for Star Wars I have a passion for all that is purple and gold, except Les Miles... In fact I can't stand him anymore. It is my love for all that is purple and gold that drives me to not liking him, yet some of you question my passion for LSU because I do not like him. I don't understand this blind passion in lumping this individual in with the program as a whole. Did you love him in 1990 when he was at Colorado? If he was fired or left for another job, say at a rival school, would you love him then? No you wouldn't so then you are capable of separating the individual and the program.

If I have to blindly love everything that is and ever was LSU football then I would have to love Curly Hallman as well and I can assure that I do not. So here it is, I enjoyed the hell out of a 7-4-1 season in 1995 but hated most of a 10-3 season on 2012. Does that mean that I am not an LSU fan?


TL;DR, I know but flame away anyway.

Dude you support the coach and team. Please you cant possibly lump les with hallman. You dont have to love hallman, but you dont have to hate him. He was a bad hire, Les was not. Let me guess, you own a sheep skin jacket and kiss the earth that saban walks on.

You talk about blind love, but it seems like you have blind hate fir les and episode 1-3 of star wars.

You are NOT a negatiger. Thats a word the Miles sunshine pumpers use. If you aren't 100% behind Miles, you are considered negatiger. The reality is ....you are a REALIST.

I think you mistyped - you said realist, but probably meant real negatiger.

No, it probably means getting hammered in the student section and banging freshmen chicks was better than sitting with your nagging wife and tired kids and a bunch of other folks whining around you.

I personally enjoy the reality of winning 80% of the time and having a seemingly clean and class program. Anyone who doesn't is free to jump off the band wagon.

I think coaches have shelf lives, the days of the coach staying 10-15 years are over. I think Miles can still write his own ticket. He knows the offense has to get better, especially this upcoming year and with all the defensive losses which will need more help than in the past.

I think Les Miles genuinely loves LSU and has never wavered in his commitment to a program that had not had stability in coaching going back to Cholly Mac. For that I commend him.

Miles did not have an easy job. He had to follow the best coach in LSU history - Nick Saban. Then he had to build his program when Saban came back to the same division. He put together, arguably the greatest season in LSU history in 2011 even with the loss to Bama when you consider he won the more difficult game in Tuscaloosa against the same team.

LOL. Did you actually read his post. He is comparing LSu football to star wars. Yeah thats some realist shite rt there. He then says if he has to like les he has to like hallman. What kind of bull shite argument is that?

Look guy, I am one of miles supporters and i wanted him fired after 1/9/12. but guess what? I woke up the next day and nothing was different. It was just a fricking game and he is still one of the best if not the best head coach lsu has ever had. You dont have to be behind miles 100%, i dont think anyone is ever behind the coach regardless of who it was. I mean shit, saints fans wanted SP gone before the 09 season happened, Lsu fans wanted saban gone before the 03 season. No fan is behind the coach 100%.

Basically what im saying is you are not a realist or a negatiger, you seem to be more of an idiotic fan.

Can you explain more as to why you don't like Les? Your concluding statement says you care more about how LSU wins than if they win. Woody says in "White Men Can't Jump", "You'd rather look good and lose, than look bad and win." We can all agree we want to win and look good while doing it. This was not the case in 2010, 2012 and regarding the passing attack in 2011. Do you blame this squarely on Miles?

As to whether or not you are a nega-tiger, I do not know.

But seriously...complete sentences, correct grammar, capitalization, & punctuation? An introduction, well rounded thoughts, and conclusion? No profanity or mind-numbing use of acronyms?

You bastard!

re: Am I a NegaTiger?


My biggest concern with this is why the frick you wrote that long drawn out story comparing our football team to your fetish with Star Wars in order to seek the approval of the retards on this board?
