The use of the word "fucking" to fill space between words to buy a slow mind time for thoughts to catch up to the mouth. 

The bizaare way "you know" is used for the same thing.

Effing French yelling "allez!" when they win points during the French Open.

Effing Spanish people yelling "vamos!" when they win points during the French Open.

Effing Americans yelling "come on!" when they win points during the French Open.

Dated, but Roger Federer crumbling in joyous rapture after winning his zillionth major like, now THIS one is REALLY the new greatest moment of his life.  Act like you been there already man.

Soccer/futbol players diving, fainting and sighing and grabbing random body parts like gigantic wuss bags to win calls from refs.

The sick way this same type of flopping and over-acting is creeping into basketball.

The way NBA players are all buddies now.  Bring back the old days when they all effing hated each other and brawled like Dr J, Bird, Magic, Isiah, Parrish,and Malone, and MJ.  The '92 Olympic dream team started this pathetic path hand holding, kumbaya love fest we all see today.

I could go on forever.  I need therapy.

When people refer to a youtube highlight video as "film."

Ex. "I wasn't too impressed with his film." Ugh. A five minute youtube video showcasing only a player's good plays is not game film.


July 29th, 2013 at 9:35 AM ^

Yes.  This.  What you said.  A thousand times.  I hate when some recruiting analyst wannabe says, "I watched his film and...." The fuck you did.  There's a big difference between a hype video and the stuff that recruiters and coaches actually watch to get a full evaluation.

"I watched his film and I think he's a stud."  Why, has this guy been making porn now?

How about we let him make his own lot in life, and not tempt the football gods.

Legit, epic, fail, MOAR, uniformz

Misuse of the words literally and ironicapostrophes, and when people enter a blog posting and write about how stupid the blog posting is.




July 29th, 2013 at 1:41 AM ^

How bout every lame ass catch phrase on this blog from pooping rainbows to 'we had subs it was crazy'.... The psuedoinside repeating 'jokes' are tedious at best...

I hate: when announcers say true freshman. It's either a redshirt freshman or a freshman. We're not dumb, we know the difference.
When announcers, looking at you Mussberger, shorten the team name like the 'noles or the 'canes.
When the weather is miserable and people have to ask you, is it hot/cold enough for you?
Fixin', as in I was just fixin' to do that.
Wicked to denote good, "thats wicked awesome." Yeah, I lived in the NE.
Trickeration. Who the [email protected]# created that word?!?
They just want it more, right because competitors sometimes say it would be cool if I win, but I just hope to have fun.
I should stop now otherwise I won't go to bed.

All of the tired memes you people seem to repeat every chance you get. If you aren't creative enough to come up with something funny, don't piggy-back off of something that happened years ago. That's why this board has gotten shittier everyday.


July 29th, 2013 at 2:59 AM ^

I hate "Iknowright", especially when people are older than 30.

Also, I'm tired of people saying, "At the end of the day, ..." At the end of the day, it's night. 



July 29th, 2013 at 7:12 AM ^

I would just add almost every universal meme/slang that has been created in the last 10 years as a starting point. Butthurt/asspained being very high. "U mad?" and every variation of it being way up there. Etc. I just prefer personal things that arise on a board or group like this as opposed to decade old 4chan (now reddit) rehashed garbage. It's all just one cog in the machine that will (is) leading us toward a true idiocracy. I prefer inside things like jokes of Tacopants, general but intentionally stupid comments followed by "/11W'd" or "/RCMB'D". I feel the same outside of football as well. I'm so tired of hearing "epic" and "fail" in a completely slang position together or by themselves. Sorry, a news anchor stuttering a few words is not an "epic fail", etc. I like coolerpooper and personal to a group football jokes but in everyday conversation I am a sucker for literal context and use of words sd opposef to stuff teens said a decade+ ago. "u mad?", "butthurt" and "fail" have made it impossible for genuine debate in person and online. Banish them.


July 29th, 2013 at 8:30 AM ^

and it seems that "epic" is a big one. I noticed one I loathe and would like to agree should go and that's "beast" referring to a person. In any form or context "beast" can go and should have years ago.

Quick Question: At the end of the day, when you get to the bottom line, isn’t a “quick question” just a long-winded, difficult-to-understand, overly complex, mind-numbing interrogatory that runs on and on and then begs for a “quick answer,” despite requiring years of intense study, countless hours of additional research and extraordinary intellect in order to properly respond to the inquiry? . . . Sounds like I’ve got a case of the Mondays after having failed to get to the office during the weekend to use the red Swingline stapler to get those new cover sheets attached to the TPS reports.

I hate that all white wide receivers or point guards are: tough, scrappy, high motor, smart, like a coach on the field/court, and of course, hard nosed


July 29th, 2013 at 9:13 AM ^

I hate all the youngsters who use their fancy smart phones as an excuse to ingore punctuation and capitalization. I also abhor the overuse of acronyms and initializations that force oldsters like me to ask my kids or use Urban Dictionary to figure out what somebody just typed.  And for God's sake, sit up straight when you're typing on your little doohickeys!  If you stay hunched over all day long, one day you'll wake up and not be able to straighten out.


July 29th, 2013 at 9:40 AM ^

I hate it when people make a typo and blame autocorrect, as if it's totally impossible to go back and fix it.  The best part is they will usually either make a new post that says "whoops stupid autocorrect" instead of fixing the old one, or edit the post just to say "whoops stupid autocorrect," instead of editing the post to look less stupid.

Blaming your machine for your own laziness and/or stupidity is thoroughly obnoxious and probably one step closer to the singularity.


July 29th, 2013 at 9:38 AM ^

 is people who say "living the dream" - it has become a smart-ass way of saying "my life sucks." I agree that "irregardless" needs to die. "not just a shooter" is something we'll hear for a couple more years... I'm not racist but.... (that's a horrible way to start a sentence). People who use nationalities/religious groups as verbs need to STFU also. I could keep going for hours, but I'm off to work. Have a great day!


July 29th, 2013 at 11:54 AM ^

When asked how I am doing I always say 'livin' the dream'.  you know why?  because it reminds me that life is but a dream and we are lucky to live it.

For me, living the dream is a mantra repeated ad nauseum to keep my self cool, calm, and appreciative...

"Mike, they just need to find a way to get their offense untracked."

Great insight there. I think they are untracked, as in not on the track, so what are you talking about and why does a train analogy make any sense anyway?

this is a serious thread now??

Ok, I hate it when people say things like, "You have the Peyton Mannings and Tom Bradys..." when they really mean, "You have players similar to Peyton Manning and Tom Brady."  Same goes for teams like, "The Michigans and Floridas and Oklahomas."

is easily "...he stuck his foot in the ground..."

Announcers sound so effing stupid saying this.  No 90-year-old man ever hobbled across his lawn without sticking his foot in the ground first.  The idiot who started this one is FIRED.

Started out as ultra-bros saying it, as in you lost your man-card if you were out shopping with your girlfriend and held her purse for a minute while she changed. Seemed like it was just guys over compensating.

Then it hit the mainstream and MIller Lite started using it.

I was just always bothered that people cared about being judged a "man", rather than just being.
