Response to the 'tortured fanbase' narrative

Hi Blazer's Edge People!

I gotta say, I don't agree with the idea that ours is a tortured fanbase...I understand the logic. I understand that we have had troubles along the way. But the reality, for me at least, is that wins don't really equate to good times for me as a fan of the blazers....I love the team in large part because of this community. So I don't see myself or any of you as 'tortured'

What I see is that we have a lot of fun whatever the circumstance of the blazers...even the gut wrenching variety...now, maybe I am too new to the blazers to appreciate the jailblazer era or missing out on MJ or Walton, but I imagine that if the Blazer's Edge had existed in those eras, we would have found plenty to laugh about....

I am just trying to say here that outer circumstances don't mean 'tortured' to me.

The flipside of the blazers is when I went to UT/Austin as a student. That is a tortured fan base! They expect championships and anything else is failure....what a lot of hot air and drama! Its also kind of tribal and scary....but the pundits would say that UT is a sports powerhouse....

I much rather prefer what we have right now.
