I'd like to pretend I don't care.
I'd like to say that it hasn't bothered me that no major sports media outlet has respected my team for my entire lifetime.
I'd lilke to say that I'm fine with being an underdog.
But goddamnit, it feels great to FINALLY get some respect.
"resides instead near the Capital Beltway and bears a racist nickname that no respectful columnist should ever type."
Gotta love that part.

No one is more knowledgeable about capgate than Redskins fans, and that's exactly the way Mara wanted it. Personally, I'm happy to discuss it with anyone who asks; I like spreading the word and throwing Mara under the bus.

Conservatives cant trust Republicans
He has posted in my FAQ thread about why Mara cheated. At this point he is simply trolling
In case he forgot, here is a primer

The hotter the heat, the harder the steel, no pressure no diamonds, we compete, we win
We are the next decade of the Washington Redskins

Look I started a thread saying both our teams can make the playoffs this year and it was DELETED... how is that a good way to get respectful posters from other teams involved in any dialogue?
Like I have said before I am not here to azz kiss you guys...its a great fan base and its fun to talk about stuff in a non-trolling , respectful manner. But I'll be damned if i am going to let someone walk on me.

Like the thread title says, the Giants and Skins have become the most relevant NFC East rivalry, and with capgate and everything, that's doubly true. It definitely translates to interactions between Skins and Giants fans. Things used to be pretty OK around here for their fans; we took a poll a while back asking what your most hated NFC East rival was, and I think the Giants came in last. Obviously, that has flipped since, although the Cowboys will probably always be #1 since the media makes sure they're always relevant, even when they suck.
I have no problem talking cordially with Giants fans as long as they recognize we got hosed and don't jump to Mara's defense. When it comes to play on the field I mean, sure, they fake injuries and stuff, but I wouldn't say they're one of the dirtier teams and their fans stir up less crap than Philly fans, who are just awful.
Honestly, I don't even like being defeatist about capgate. It happened, but I can't blame capgate for our injuries or Tanard Jackson's stupidity. We would have been a 10-6 team without all of that, so did capgate prevent us from being contenders? Hardly. And it won't next year either. And when that's behind us, RG3 will still be there. It's hard to get too up in arms about it, but I hate when it's shoved in my face, like we deserved it or something.

I've said this before but I'll say again here.
I'd LOVE to be talking football right now. The fact that we aren't is not the fault of the Redskins or Redskins fans.
If Giant fans are annoyed at what's being focussed on here, aim your annoyance in the right direction, which would be north of here.
The Giants cheated to specifically hurt us, and now we hate them. Settle in and get used to it, because this isn't something that's just going to go away. This is now the new reality of the nature of the rivalry between the Giants and the Redskins, and the Giants have no one to blame but themselves.
