Don’t Smile After a Loss!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

During the fourth quarter of last night’s game between the Cowboys and the Vikings, the hosting Minnesotans were forced to punt at their own 21 with 6:45 to go and down 14-9. The Vikings called on punter Jeff Locke who struggled all night, averaging a paltry 32 yards on 7 punts. This one would barely travel the average and the Cowboys were in business at their own 46.

The visitors were gifted great field position. They had a chance to put the game out of reach for a Vikings offense that made the Ravens offense look like the Houston Oilers’ run-and-shoot squad of the early 90’s, relatively speaking of course.

As he walked off the field, all Locke could do was smile (see featured picture above).

I’m glad that I’m not a Vikings fan.

And so is my TV.

Is it too much to ask during difficult times, that your team’s players feel half the pain that you do as a fan?

And what’s up with these opposing players exchanging jerseys after games. They look like kids on Christmas morning. If I get beat out trying to land an advertising deal with a sought after sponsor, I’m not looking to go to happy hour with the winning competitor who just took food off my table.

Are you?

If my team loses a big game that they could’ve won and I see them frolicking with the enemy just moments after a loss – mere seconds, in the case of the Vikings, after dropping your 6th game in the last 7, I’m ready to blow a 50-amp fuse.

Look, I get that there’s little that can be done after the clock winds down to 0:00. I also get that for players, the highs aren’t as high and the lows not as low after a win or a loss compared to the volatile mood swings of fans. They can’t afford to gloat after a win nor can they wallow in mire after falling short.

The players almost immediately need to begin their preparation for the next game.

But c’mon man.


Have some respect for the people that make your lifestyles possible.

The fans!
