While it's still extremely early to start singing the praises of RG3 in B&G, by all accounts we are going to have a very special QB leading our team.
Over the weekend everytime I saw somebody rocking skins gear, i could tell there was something different. Just yesterday I went to the gas station to fill up my tires and got in an awesome conversation with a skins fan who was vaccuming their car. It's really exciting to see and feel a new energy with skins fans in the area, even after just one weekend of the trade news.
However, in my opinion, our fan base has a lot of "lukewarm at best" fans. A lot of fans who hardly root for the team, hate the owner and all of his failed moves (most are woefully ignorant of the past 2 years under ShanaAllen), talk only about the "glory years" and scoff at this generation of skins fans (you all know this guy), etc. I would put most of my friends in this category, unfortunately. Same goes for most of my family and co-workers.
This weekend got me wondering what it will be like if RG3 starts lighting things up in DC. We'll have an influx of something we probably havn't thought of in a LONG time; bandwagon Skins fans.
It feels wierd even saying that, but it will happen. We are already getting a lot of new fans from Baylor alum (something I am 100% cool with btw) and RG3 fans in general.
And let me be clear, there's a big difference between a "re-energized" fan than a true bandwagoner. I'm pretty sure most of you know and can spot the difference.
What do you guys think and feel about RG3's effect on our fan base as a whole, but specifically to the inevitable mob of bandwagoners?
