    It's not our fault that many of the things in Central Iowa suck!

    There is a deep sense of entitlement with this generation.

    Re: We are a culture of complainers...

    If you take away Champs, Pollard, Kevin Jackson, and probably McCarney, I see a list of a bunch of people/entites that half-*** their way through life. Most of us would kill for opportunities they have, and we see them **** it up.

    Having lived in a bigger market, I'd say that many of what's going on is that these people/entities are being lazy, mainley because there is no other competition.

    Indeed. The irony of this thread is dense.

    If it weren't for complaining message boards would be nonexistent.

    Wouldnt finger point at generations. Otherwise we might as well talk about the boomer stereotypes as well. This issue affects the people as a whole.

    I love Central Iowa. Hell, I love the State of Iowa (w/the exception of you-know-where). You aren't one of those guys who comes to Iowa for our fine educational institutions, and then ******* because we have less malls than the large metro area you were raised in, are you? Nothing irritates me more than people from Minnesota, Chicago, East Coast, etc, that come here and ***** about how much Iowa sucks. If you don't like it, don't come here.

    Not saying you're in this group, your post might have been a joke, but I have dealt w/what I just described alot, and it's a pet peeve.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    It's our complaining that has sustained us as a fanbase for over a hundred years.

    Re: We are a culture of complainers...

    I love Iowa. Everytime I'm away I can't wait to get back. I love the size of DSM. You get a bit of the urban/downtown feel, but you don't get the traffic jams, pollution, and scared to walk down the street at night as much.

    I also love living near Ames so I can get up to watch football games and tailgate. There is no place in the world I'd rather be than tailgating up at JTS on Saturdays in the fall.
