I haven't seen this article discussed anywhere. I think there's a lot of truth to it. I know the excessive negativity of some fans takes away some of the fun for me.
I'm at a point in my life where I'm going to choose to have a positive outlook and refuse to let the negativity drag me down. I think a lot of recruits are attracted to positive environments.
I think if you win SEC and national championships the negativity disappears for the most part. A good amount of our fans have a right to be negative if its the truth. I was in middle school the last time UGA won the SEC I am now a junior in college. Winning big will cure everything.
I didn't read the link. But I think people in general are attracted to positive environments.
Unfortunately, human nature remembers the negativities in things before it remembers positives.
It's why a lot of effective sales training focuses on identifying and highlighting the pain before bringing up any positives.
Winning and losing affects my week. I can't help it.
However, i still think it's pathetic for me to expect a championship from my university.
I read the article and it infuriates me that he singles out UGA fans. He conveniently glosses over the hundreds of incidents that occur in not only the rest of the SEC, but the rest of the country! His point is valid concerning the behavior of some fans. But this article is a hatchet job written to take down UGA! At least that is how it comes across. What a Jerk!
I read it more from the point of view that this sort of "fan" reaction hurts recruiting for the very team they are rooting for. I didn't take it that it was limited to UGA fans. But as DAWG fans, we aren't helping matters with negativity.
The post about negativity disappearing, when you win championships is ludicrous. I'm behind you win or win. Didn't take long for the MNC luster to wear off for Auburn either.
negative fans are a vast minority, but they are the most vocal. When things are going well, certain posters disappear.
But when the smallest thing happens, be prepared for thread after thread after thread.
Some fans are just inept socially. Even when posters are knowingly talking to a prospects mom, they say stupid things. I feel for college coaches having to constantly do damage control.
