I wish some of us on here would stop describing our entire fan base as one, as if it were one person, or even a group of persons.
Yes "some" of the fans "suck ass," "some" are impatient, whining, and can't stand prosperity.
Yes "some" complain no matter what, and "some" hate Miles.
Are you describing the fans you see on this board? Because if that's your demographic sample, it is monstrously out of whack and innaccurate.
There are literally MILLIONS of LSU alumni and fans around the world, and probably 95% of them have never even lurked on a message board, let alone post!
That's not to say you can't encounter negative Tiger fans everywhere, but you simply can't make an across-the-board judgment about millions of diverse and different individuals, based on several hundred (if that) posters on a random internet message board, and the others you happen to encounter elsewhere.


Because there are some stupid M'fers who don't seem to understand message boards. The LSU fan base is awesome, just has a few malcontents like any fan base.

But the worst are the Johnny-Come-latelys that just started following around 2003 and think that LSU is entitled to championships.



Pretty much. When I went back to La. after the 2003 season I was amazed at the new influx of LSU bumper stickers, yard signs and flags. They aren't the fan base, just a portion of it.

Take your pick
We can have a crazy about LSU fan base with an insatiable appetite for tiger football or We can have an indifferent fan base who could care less about football. When there is as much passion about LSU football you are going to have people take ownership of the team and at times get highly emotional. It comes with the territory. This constant crying and whining by the so called "perfect fans" who would be happy if we went back to the early 90s so these fans could prove they were true fans. One of the reasons LSU is successful is the financial backing of its fans and supporters. The commitment LSU made with facilities just 12 years ago came with expectations. Les is grateful for the off the charts interest in LSU football because it has made his family very wealthy.

Who are the "elite" programs these days???

It's been debated on this board that LSU is NOT elite...who is elite and what defines it?

How is LSU not? "In the hunt" most years, consistently finish Top 10, often Top 5, etc., etc.

Only a fruit loop would suggest ANY LSU fans want to return to the early 90ies.

LSU is most definitely elite, but some on this board find ways to make the case otherwise.

If you have been around awhile, you've witnessed it repeatedly and consistently.

If only "fans" would be as passionate in defending the team as much as they are in defending each other, LSU would have an elite fan-base to match their elite program.
