Cocktail fans

I just wondered how the true fans of UGA football feel about the "Jump on the bandwagon fans" . This year membership in FB pages containing Dawg football increased weekly. I have been booted from them all for confronting the cocktail fans who a majority of them think they are Div 1 coaches. They have no knowledge of UGA history and Traditions and know even less about CFB.

    I have loved the Bulldogs from childhood and grew to appreciate the traditions of football as well as the school. There truly is a difference between Georgia and every other also-ran university.
    I welcome those bandwagon fans with open arms, just like we did in the early 80's.

    They annoy me, but luckily I live in NYC and can avoid most of them. But it comes along with the winning territory

    I'm drinking a cocktail as I type. I'm a alum and fan since the early 70's.

    Therefore, I am a "Cocktail Fan".

    Dilly Dilly!!


    After Wednesday's beautiful brouhaha I had to switch from Tequila to Wine. I'm drinking a glass as I type.

    Therefore, I am a "Wino Fan".

    Silly Silly!!

    Almost forgot, have bled Red & Black since some point in the early 60ties.

    I just joined this board a few days ago. Had season tickets from '91 to '00 before moving out of state and have watched **** near every single game since I was five years old.

    The more fan support we get the better!

    Labeling someone a "bandwagon fan" based upon social media and discussion forum participation makes someone sound really young. Most adults have more significant stuff going on in our lives than to spend countless hours debating which incoming freshman is going to take over the SEC. That stuff is fun but keeping the household running and getting kids to music lessons or ball practice doesnt mean someone is less of a fan. I remember the dawgvent when Jim Donnan was considering the UNC job, but I havent posted there since 2003.

    False advertising. I thought you had a new cocktail to recommend. Mods ought to take you to the woodshed.

    “ Bankwalker “. Nice handle, no pun intended.

    When I was a kid my dad explained to me about swimmers and bankwalkers. I haven’t heard that term in decades, but it did make me chuckle thinking about him.
