Do the Titans have Fair-Weather Fans?

Keep the pitchforks down and listen. Back in the day LP Field, then called Adelphia Coliseum, was a feared venue. The crowd noise was downright impossible to deal with. That was also during our glory years. McNair, George, Wycheck and Mason (before he became a Ratbird). One thing I've noticed during my 13 years following of the Titans is fans of the Titans have never been shy about letting the team know they are dissatisfied. I've witnessed Steve McNair booed for Neil O'Donnell, Chris Johnson booed two games into the season, and a stadium as empty as Jacksonville's despite the team being in the midst of a playoff chase.

Now I too have been guilty of this. I started calling for Jake Locker immediately after Matt Hasselbeck has a poor outing. Booing the team is a right of every fan, but I can't help but feel their has been more hate than love lately.

A great fan base shows up for games even when the team stinks. Qwest Field is rocking every Sunday, no matter the record. That's what I want.

I miss the LP Field that made opposing offenses struggle to communicate. These days, when the Steelers come to town, you see nothing but yellow towels waving. If you so much as stand and yell for too long, there is always a guy screaming "SIT DOWN!" It's a sad. Why aren't you standing? I really miss the way things used to be. I hope that with the staff bringing in high character guys, fans will have something to cheer for finally. This season, fans need to return to form because this franchise deserves better.
