Hater Nation

As mandated: Jugdish Loves the Cock …….

I’ll use today’s post to change gears a bit and go in a different direction. This topic came to me after looking over at iamunstoppable’s blog.

I wanted to address rooting against teams, or hating.

Why is it wrong to hate against someone’s team? If anything, hating is UNDERRATED.

If you say something derogatory or negative about someone’s team you get “stop hating”. Well ya know what, enough of that….

A lot of people put up bio’s a few posts back, let me amend mines…

I hate…

Len Paquarelli - his constant mockery and back handed comments about the Skins means he is dead to me.
Chris Sheridan – obviously he is a Russian Spy.
John Hollister - the guy is a freak, plain and simple. His PER is useless to me. And he doesn’t support Steve Nash for MVP.
Duke Basketball – JJ Reddick is the best baybeee… - if that statement doesn’t make you hate Duke I don’t know what will.
Notre Dame Football – The Golden Dome is so 1946, get over it people.
New York Yankees – yuck.

These are just some of the individuals and sports teams I love to poop on.

One last thought, is it ever appropriate to use “me” or “us” or “we’re” when referring to your favorite teams? I say no.

Feel free to run with this or run away from it.

I say unless you're suiting up for the team, you should not use the term "we", or anything like that.

if it's life or death, and i am identified as a Yankees fan.. you better bet your ass that im saying "we" for my hometown team.

if it comes to it, blood will be shed.

when it's last resort, then it's ok in my book, thats all im sayin.

temwr said...

Umm didn't you spell jugdish's name wrong?

temwr said...

A DB sucks on Shanoff's blog? What was posted? Damn insider crap.

Isiah Thomas said...

good call tem, its fixed now....don't want anyone to get confused about who loves the cock....

Los said...

It's what makes sports great - hating other teams! We do enough of that here in Philly.

Here are some people in sports I hate:

Michael Irving - Dude, could you please let other people talk instead of interrupting them with your grunts, screams, and everything else. Others on the show have important things to say, not useless gibberish that you like to "impart" on the viewing audience.

Joe Theismann - Seriously? What are you still doing here? Can we please put Lawrence Taylor in the booth with him one more time so we can finish it all?

The Akron Zips - Guys, I hate to be the one ... but, how's about getting a new nickname .... PLEASE!

NASCAR - Enough already!

Jay Scott said...

i'd say if you're willing to stand by the team when they take a loss or have an entire sucky season, then you can say we. or that could be me trying to make up for the fact that i never played past high school and still want to identify myself with a team

Isiah Thomas said...

los you dun did it...hatin on NASCAR...

I pray to Baby Jesus litn-n doesn't strike you down.

temwr said...

It is OK to use we if you have cheered for the same team for 15 consecutive years(without cheering for another team in the same league), or you went to the college you cheer for or were employed by the team/college in some way.

And if you suited up for the team and not another team after that then it is OK. For instance I do not believe that Jerry Rice can use "we" to talk about any team anymore except his college team. He forfeited the right to use "we" when refering to the 49ers when he signed with another team. His 1-day contract doesn't count at all other than to void his using "we" when talking about the Broncos. Steve Young can say "we" when refering to the 49ers because he did not suit up for anyone afterwards. Although he can not use "we" for the Buccaneers. I however can, because I have cheered for them for over 15 consecutive years.

I hate far too many things to list in one day, but I will return with a mini list.

Los said...

Sorry Jay - Just had to throw that out there. Please don't tell me you like country music as well ...

Los said...

I meant - Isiah.

Isiah Thomas said...

for the record I am a huge NASCAR fan. #24 = #1 in my book....

I don't use "we" unless I'm on the team.

Forgot to mention: today is opening day for College Football. The day football returns should really be a national holiday.

Also for the record, my first CFB wager is as follows :

a 3 team, 6 pt teaser :

Boston College (-6) over CENTRAL MICHIGAN

Minnesota (-9.5) over KENT STATE

South Carolina (-1) over MISSISSIPPI STATE

all road teams.

Isiah Thomas said...

Country Music....no thanks.

I'm not sure where the line is with "we" and pro athletes.

anonymous said...

danshanoff.blogspot.com

also.. i threw out a mention for our page over there, so maybe we'll see a few stragglers come through these here parts.

Martin VanNostrand said...

The DB comment is on the Shanoff Blog spot. More street cred thanks to iam's verbal drive by.

Did Sir Charles go on a weekend trip with Tom Cruise?

http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=2566899

Isiah Thomas said...

we def.need to get some pub for this puppy.

Does anyone have an account at sonsofthesportsguy.com so we could get a post up there?

The Rev said...

Good work, Iam.

I am often guilty of the "we" thing.

So sue me.

Isiah Thomas said...

forgot to mention my boy Dan Synder the afforementioned GOOAT is now backing Tom Cruise. Snyder is a fucking genius, that cook Cruise still has a few more money makers in him. Free Agent spending here we come!

The Rev said...

I saw Jay Scott pimped us out over at Shanoff's place too. Thank you.

The Rev said...

Charles Barkley never fails to entertain me.

The Rev said...

So Daniel Snyder just gave us all 2 more years of ammo to rag on his ass.

Hey, the Eagles owner was a Hollywood producer at one time, but the only film he ever got going was VI Warshawski.

Things I HATE:

Slow people in the fast lane. Everyone hates this, but still it happens every day on every road. Ask any person in America and they say "oh yeah that fucking sucks." Well if everyone hates it why the fuck does it happen every day??

Fair weather fans. For example this year. Tiger fans don't bother getting up in my grill about your team doing well if you haven't worn that Tigers hat even once in the past 10 years. I don't want to hear it. I make sure to wear my IU Alumni shirt to work before the start of every football and basketball season just so that I can brag when/if IU wins...In football it doesn't happen, but when it does, I am going to have a freakin' blast. I do the same with my Kenyon stuff. I hate fair weather fans and I don't want to be confused with one.

Almost every TV announcer. They pretty much all suck. 'Nuff said.

SAS. What a douche. If your only method to get people to listen to you is to be louder and louder then you aren't making a good point so you should just shut up.

Girls who show lots of cleavage and then get pissed when guys look. Come on, what the fuck is this about? If the dude touches you then you get mad, but if you are wearing something that shows that much you know we are going to look. Don't pretend to be mad, it is just stupid.

Neighbors who cut their grass twice a week. Yeah I get it you are freakin' retired and have all the time in the world. Quit making me look bad, I don't have that kind of time. It's not like once a week is too infrequent. Old bastard!

Dick Vitale. Please ESPN just fire him.

People who work at fast food restaurants in Ohio, but can't speak English. Come on! I know it is a shitty job, but the least you can do Wendy's is have someone taking my order who understands what I am ordering. If I don't order a value meal by number then I just get a mystery meal. It could be Chili, it could be nuggets, it could be salad, who knows.

Douchebags. Again 'nuff said.

Academy Award winning movies. I swear they all suck. Just a bunch of stupid period pieces or borefests. And if a good one does come around and I would like it then well the other winners fucked it for that movie because I swore off the winners. Won't watch them, been burned too many times.

Mailbags. I know these freakin' writers are editing their mailbags and cherry picking the really stupid ones. Why can't they just put in an actual representative sample??

Along the same lines..Leno skits where he asks trivia questions. I swear he spends 8hrs asking 1,000 people who the first president was and he airs the two people who say "Snoopy" and "Joan of Arc." 998 people got it right and he is making American's look even dumber than we really are. We don't need to look any dumber.

FOX. That freakin' network cancels every new show I like and keeps on the dumbest shit ever. It has to be a conspiracy. The Simpsons is good. Then they cancel Arrested Dev, Firefly, Family Guy and Futurama...But Malcom in the Middle gets a 100 yr run. Fucking idiots run that network.

Umm OK I better get back to work for awhile. I'll post later again. I hate a lot of shit.

The Rev said...

I can do 4:45 pm ET.

anonymous said...

im such a "i told you so" hater, that when teams are doing shitty, i buy their clothes just in hopes that i'll be able to wear them proudly one day.

example.. my couple pairs of Clippers shorts look great when i'm playing ball, now that they dont suck anymore.

i wore my D-Tigers cap proudly for years in hopes that one day i'd be redeemed.

shawshank redemption now bitches!

temwr said...

dang I am out of town next tue and wed, so I am auto pick.

Cam said...

Let the hate continue . . .

People that say you can't cheer against a team just because you hate them. Yes I can.

People who cuss all the time. Get the poop out of your mouth, poop mouth.

Dan Shanoff. The Quickie became too long and he forced his opinions on you like he was the leader of a cult. Plus his instant history. He's the worst writer ever.

Bandwagon fans. The people who have Cowboy, Rams, Ravens, and Patriots t-shirts in their closets. Pick a team and stick with it. (Coming from a current 49ers fan).

Martin VanNostrand said...

I can do 4:45 Eastern if we roll with it. That will give me an hour fifteen before I jettison the escape pod. If I end up with any work in that time I'll just autopick.

anonymous said...

'instant history' = overreacting sportswriters trying to make a "big" statement.

Spaceman Spiff said...

you know i can do 4:45 ET

whocares said...

I dont really have a problem with the "we" thing. If someone is actually using "we" and believing that they had any part in a big game, trade, etc. then they should be shot on sight anyway.

Look at it this way. You go into your co-workers office and he says, "We just picked up a WR off the free agent market." You would look around, see the team memorabilia for the, say 49ers, and realize the "we" in question is the 49ers.

Same scenario, you go into his office and he says "They got a big WR off the free agent market". You would be like, who's they? Falcons? Eagles?

Or he would have to say "The 49ers got a WR..." and then add the disclaimer at the end, "and by the way, I'm a HUGE 49ers fan."

In short, the "we" saves time as well as lets the other person in the conversation know that you are a loyal, die hard fan.

jugdish said...

Do y'all need a 10th still? I can probably do the draft at that time.

ebntx said...

temwr87 said...

If I don't order a value meal by number then I just get a mystery meal.

i love that. can't these people enter an order without looking at a register with little pictures of food on it?

autopick it is for me

Spaceman Spiff said...

sign up then damn it

jugdish said...

post the league sign up info again if you don't mind...and I'll sign up

El Padrino said...

hate:

Mike Tirico
Don King
Bennett Salvatore
Scoop
Reggie Miller
WNBA
T.O
Armando Benitez
Roger Clemens
The New York Jets

Los said...

I really hate when they go to commercial after a touchdown (and extra point) and then immediately go to commercial after the kickoff again. This makes about as much sense as Paris Hilton making an album.

The Rev said...

But unfortunately, Paris Hilton making an album actually makes sense.

That is what music has become.

with all this hating i am surprised there is no mention of larry merchant...

i hate this guy! he makes me want to gouge my eyes out and stuff them in my ears so i don't have to hear or see him.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

if we have that many autopicks, can we do it at 4:15? I'm off at 4.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

llcoolscott loves the cock!

whocares said...

I'm beginning to hate ESPN as a whole. If I could get my sports news elsewhere, I would.

Damn the monopoly on my life!!

whocares said...

And has anyone noticed on DB's blog that out of the last seven visible posts, only ONE PARAGRAPH relates to sports.

Does that guy honestly think people give a shit that he got taken for fitty in Vegas?

Advice to DB (I knwo you're out there). Get back to semi-funny sports stuff and get away from the completely unfunny stories of your life.

ebntx said...

btw, where is thejaywhite today?

did one of his conquests? come back for his ass?

We have 10.

Yay.

Allrighty I'm in...and I'd support a draft at 4:15.

TheJayWhite is at the annual Sons and Daughters of Notre Dame Alumni convention where they may discuss the inaccuracies of Rudy.

anonymous said...

ya know, and in unrelated movie news.. i totally think they fabricated the flying skateboard from Back to the Future 2.

liars!!

also... i hate reggie miller's sister, Cheryl.

did u know that she scored 100 points in a game once?!? if not, watch any random TNT broadcast and she'll be sure to tell you..

The Rev said...

Shanoff's blog will get worse comments than anything KC had.

And I bet Shanoff will love it.

shanoff's comment section

dan shanoff: boy, that escalated quickly... i mean, that really got out of hand fast.
douchebag: it jumped up a notch.
dan shanoff: it did, didn't it?
wwl: yeah, i stabbed a man in the heart.
dan shanoff: i saw that. wwl killed a guy. did you throw a trident?

"People who work at fast food restaurants in Ohio, but can't speak English. Come on! "

I axed for salt one time as I was getting my drive through food, the bitch looked at me like I axed her to explain the theory of relativity.

I agree Larry Merchant is in a perpetual state of drunken-ness and no one mentions it. Why? Jim Lampley should do us a favor and try swallowing his tongue.

Big up to everyone pimping out LOV on shanoff's blog.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Anyone listen to Mike & Mike?
This morning Erik & Eric were sitting in for them (Kuselias & Wynalda). They were talking about college fb and Kueslias says the FSU Miami game will come down to the kicker. Then transitions into asking Wynalda about his NFL tryout 3 years ago after he retired from MLS.

Apparently Wynalda was offered a job by an un-named NFL team but they wanted him to go to Scotland and play for the Euro league first to get some game experience. Dude turned it down but still says without hesitation "I can do it". Said he would want to kick for the Pats.

I don't know what his situation was at the time but NFL kicker has to pay better than MLS commentator.

Isiah Thomas said...

re: fantasy draft, won't be able to participate live so I'll rank and autopick...

re: Eric & Eric - I heard that too, I think Wynalda is bi-sexual and plays for the other team more than the home team if you get my drift...

Adam Vinatieri has a broken bone in his foot? Peyton Manning just cain't get right.

Forgot to mention I hate the Patriots. They got lucky to win 3 superbowls. That's right - lucky. Bruschi is the devil.

VIVA!

Martin VanNostrand said...

I heard that about Adam V on the Big Show during lunch. Reported it was his planting foot. Maybe they will staple his foot to his sack a la Schilling Steve-O style.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

c'mon! let's push that draft time back half an hour.

temwr said...

More things I HATE:

Jim Gray -what an ass

Sammy Sosa -conviently unlearning English is a lame excuse, think of something better

Food Prices at Games -How did this get so out of control??

Smelly people at Games -If you get unlucky enough to sit next to a smelly person during a basketball game you are screwed. Your seat smells and there isn't a chance in hell you are getting your money back...lose lose situation

Partisan Fans with National Columns -Yeah you like the Sox, quit whining about them. You have a national column, talk about all of baseball, or basketball, quit focusing every column on one team

Peter King's things he thinks he thinks -If you aren't going to post nude pics of the daughters (assuming they are of age) then I have no interest in them

temwr said...

I also hate that damn Gridiron Gang ad that pops up on every page of si.com

jugdish said...

I hate the way this page puts me at the top everytime I refresh it.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Whether it be 4:15, 4:45 or 5:15 if the majority is doomed to autopick then I will accept that same fate. I look forward to starting Aaron Brooks at QB, Drew Bennett at wide reciever and a retired Curtis Martin at running back.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Maybe Jaywhite was moving today.

anonymous said...

big ups on the jim gray callout...

WOW.. what a f*ck.

seriously, you could have cancer, be in a wheelchair on the sidelines, hooked to a respirator, be holding a puppy, smiling for a photograph with a little kid for Make A Wish and jim gray would still call you out and try to get you riled up. all he does is just get in there an aggravate people for the sake of aggravating them. he's like frickin Geraldo Rivera without the creepy 'stache.

i hate him.

and i hate Geraldo too while we're at it.

Isiah Thomas said...

Peter Kings daughters have to be pushing at least a deuce, maybe a deuce and a half each, no way they're under 250lbs.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I hate people that live outside of their means. Livin' on credit is easy until you gotta pay them bills. Oh and it's pathetic that you're 25 years old and your parents pay part of your fucking Lexus payment. Get a hold of yourself.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I hate that you all probably make more money than I do. Piss off. although my job is pretty sweet.

ebntx said...

i forgot about thejaywhite saying he was going to move...i call bs

i think it was time for his monthly rape prevention seminar he is required to hold as a result of his sexual assault conviction.

Martin VanNostrand said...

I hear you Meiz. I'm 30 and have been on my own dime since 21. There's a dude who works for me who is 27. His parents live like 5 states away and pay for his apartment and bills and bought him a 2005 Explorer. Dude basically can blow whatever he makes but I think his folks are making him pay a school loan. At least he is a nice guy and not a prick but still.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Also I consider myself lucky to have gotten though college only having to work part time and have some parental support. To anybody that was on their own since highschool or before my hat is off to you.

ebntx said...

i hate people like that...

my 28 yr old neighbor was been giving a '04 suburban by her father 2 yrs ago...then an aunt passed away 2 months ago and her uncle gave her the aunt's '05 escalade

damn, maybe i should hook with her, she's got the goods, too bad she is a total bitch and has to weigh at least 350...could be peter king's daughter

Cam said...

Yeah, I always hater the girls at college who had Convertibles and a personalized license plate that says "Princess". I'm going to be paying back my student loans until my kids go to college.

Martin VanNostrand said...

It's funny because I know I make more than this dude on paper but to look at our spending habits you would never know it. Guy eats out EVERY DAY. Lunch and dinner. And not Wendy's and Taco Bell but like Logan's and PF Changs. Has to drop $35-40 a day just on eats. I rock the pb&j and hamburger helper. Both of those are tastey though.

It's nice his parents float him but I wouldn't trade with him. Can't imagine what my wife would say if my parents had that much control in my life.

anonymous said...

she'd say "i love our new house honey".

JFreak said...

I can't move the draft back any further. Apparently those time slots are already full.

It's gonna go on at 4:45 if the majority don't want it earlier.

Jay Scott said...

i like how some of the Lordz of Vengeance faithful have been punking out DB on Shanoff's blog

Isiah Thomas said...

great Team USA gacked it up today to Greece. Looks like they had a lead but shot poorly from 3pt range and from the free throw line. And they couldn't defend the pick-n-roll. Unreal. Its still not real hoops so I won't kick any dogs. At least not too hard.

Chris Sheridan must have the biggest boner right now. He has a chat on espn at 10am EST.

also.. Nova, thanks for taking the invite.. come back often to hate and inflict scorn with us.

temwr said...

Anyone else get the feeling that Sherridan had that "nobody should be suprised team USA lost" article written about 2 months ago? I think he just had to enter the team name that we(I can use we b/c of my over 15yr rule) lost to.

jugdish said...

That bastard Sheridan is probably celebrating with a gyro right now!

Jay Scott said...

Well, I watched the game live, as I've done the entire tourney, getting up at 5:30, and for this most recent game, 2:30am.

USA started out strong, and went up by 12 in the 2nd quarter. At this point, Greece changed up their offense, and as much as i hate to say it, at any given moment on the floor there were 4 different combos of Malone and Stockton & at least 5 guys from the US who didn't know how to defend the pick & roll.

We, and I say we as Team USA because I took this loss hard, could not guard the pick and roll. There wasn't any switching on the screens until the 4th quarter. Greece effing went 14 for 18 in the 3rd quarter.

I'd also say that the ESPN announcers are probably the most annoying ever. I ended up watching half the game with the mute button on, only turning the volume up to hear the explanation on a wack call.

At a crucial possible comeback, Kirk Hinrich got called for a BS intentional foul underneath the basket, with the refs disreguarding that any time USA got the ball on an open break, they were pushed in the back just to stop the play. And while USA did shoot more free throws, (and missed alot, unfortunetly) we were continually hacked underneith the rim. Several times the refs did not allow the continuation shot, while the Greeks got it every time. Am I bitter? Yes. Biased? Yes. Who gives a crap, we lost and I want to complain.

And I think that the announcers are reading a script written by Sheridan. Anytime that a jump shot was taken, they went into the "USA isn't taking smart shots right now, that's now what we need to do." I mean, they got more excited and spoke louder whenever the US was down. And, I'm a Duke fan. I love Coach K, Battier, JJ Redick, and Dickie V (if for nothing else but the fact it pisses off every non-Duke fan) but I don't need to hear how Shane Battier does the dirty work that doesn't show up in the stats everytime he touches the ball. I think they covered this 12 times during the game. And that was when I didn't have the Mute on. My favorite call from the annoucers was wiht about 2.5 minutes left, USA down 8, we inbounded the ball, and Carmelo (who made his 2 previous 3's) took a wide open shot, but unfortunetly missed. The annoucers say something along the line of 'we don't need to take those quick shots. we need to work the ball around, find the open shot, and not let the Greeks control the flow of the game' Are you kidding me, there's 2and a half effin minutes left the in the game!

That said, I think we were hurt in the final minutes by the team play system a bit too much. Lebron attempted to take over the game near the end, but it was too late. He was driving to the basket, layups and dunks at will, but it was too late. I think Coach K's team play system works well, and it has for this tourney so far, but in desperate times, take desperate measures.

The thing I try to focus on now, to put somewhat of a brightside to this, is that this team USA had no more prep time than the teams before, and we did better. There won't be a gold for this tourney, but the overall mission in beginning this team 3 years early, is to bring home the gold at the Olympics. USA has taken big steps to show they are and have improved, and I fully believe that by the time the Ollympics come around, USA will win the gold, hands down.
