    Foul weather fans social group

    Could we create one?

    I love to talk about Cyclone sports after a win, and even after a loss. I would like to do so in a forum filled with people who are fans, win or lose. Here's what I'd like to see in that group:

    Personal respect for our players, coaching staff, athletic department and even other fans. We would not have to wear rosed colored glasses, or always look on the bright side, but we would have to maintain a level of decorum that avoids personal attacks on the aforementioned groups, and always, always, always, win or lose, by 5 or 50 points, conduct ourselves as fans of Iowa State University and it's players.

    Any chance we can create that?

    I'll most likely continue to "type in **** ", as you so beautifully put it. However it will always be concerning things I care about.

    That's my point exactly. Somewhere to discuss what went right, and what went wrong. Talk about our team, even in defeat, as if it were still our team. Talk about our players' strengths and weaknesses without launching into a tirade and insulting them. I want to talk about the game, but I talk to other team's fans who give us more respect that some of our own "fans" do after a loss.

    Push for it. Mods will make one. Would be nice to converse without the riff raff.

    This was a foul loss. How is CB going first round at this rate if he does not get more help?


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    He asked a general question,.. I gave an answer. The original post said nothing about only positive responses needed.
