    "Bad Fans"

    Hoiberg just called you out in his press conference. You know who you are. Players and coaches read your garbage. Maybe it's time to change your ways.

    Maybe it's time they play better. I was at the game on Saturday - all they did was pout when it didn't go their way.

    Re: "Bad Fans"

    Fred is right that players who are slumping should just turn it off. Anyone can say anything, and they often do. But the motivation for ending a slump isn't going to be found on a message board or twitter. They have to claw out of it themselves. And dwelling on "bad fans" that every fan base has, doesn't help.

    The flip side of it is to not also buy into your own press when everybody is telling you how great you are!

    Re: "Bad Fans"

    Most of what is posted is pretty legit analysis. Most of it is critique of what people see. If the coaches and players are offended by it: A. Play better or B: Don't read it.

    It's a forum board where everything is someone's opinion. We all know about those. They are like *******. Everyone has them and they always stink.

    It's going to be fun.

    But I wish people would remember that these players read this stuff and it is a lot harder to ignore than you would think. How many of us think to ourselves that we should ignore the posters that irritate us, but yet keep reading their stuff? Same thing with a 20 year old college kid.

    If everyone thinks before they post and ask themselves if they would want their kid reading it, it would be better. It doesn't mean that you can't say Iowa State played bad. Or they are struggling. Or hell even say that Matt is struggling. But it should mean that you should realize that EVERY player is trying their best and that a slump does not mean that the player will forever suck.

    How about Hoiberg and players stop reading message boards? ?????? They should be spending their time in the classroom, and in practice. Mental toughness. Worry more about that than what a bunch of dorks think on a message board. Disappointed Fred would bring that up.

    Didn't listen, but this can't be a good idea.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Oh for god's sake. They are kids. Staying away from twitter is hard for a college kid to do. I find it disappointing that fans think that they can just avoid social media stuff. And I find it disturbing that fans think that it is OK to tweet crap to an individual player bashing them. That's bush league and childish. Maybe the FANS need to stay off of twitter and message boards as well.

    Cant this be said for you to? Unless your a mod, or your job pays you to be on Fanatic just STFU and GTFO!! Players/Coaches have just as much reason to be on social media and message boards as the losers who call them out!!

    What the hell does it matter. He said he told Matt to stay off of twitter since some fans were tweeting bad things to him.

    Good advice from Fred and it should be pointed out that people aren't telling ADULT fans to stop bashing players via twitter, but are telling college kids to ignore it when they do.

    Pretty damn stupid, if you ask me.

    Re: "Bad Fans"

    Paraphrase of it: The question was in the context of dealing with slumps as players, specifically Matt Thomas. Fred said he told Matt to turn it off because bad fans and fans that aren't even fans of ISU use it to get under their skin.

    Re: "Bad Fans"

    In before "if they can't handle it, they aren't players anyway."


    I don't care if you are black or white I don't care if you're rich or poor
    I don't care where you come from whether its Texas Florida, California or
    right here in the state of Iowa. I don't care about any of that.
    But what I did care about was moving forward from that day on
    that we were one team. That we were unified and we were one team.
    And you have bought into it hook, line and sinker
    And for that, men, I am so proud

    I love these types of lines. Dude, these guys are normal human beings. They aren't robots designed for our pleasure as fans. They work their ***** off. That's the only way you get to that level.
