Scott is wrong about Alabama fans

Chadd Scott proves all people from Atlanta are arrogant douchebags

People of Alabama, lend me your ear, regardless of your team or university affiliation. I have something to tell you that should clear up a lifetime of perplexity for you. Words that will strike at your very soul, giving you the “Aha!” moment you’ve been waiting for all of your life. You ready? Are you sitting down? Here it is: All people in the city of Atlanta…that wretched place just to our east…are arrogant douchebags.

Scott is a “shock jock” at an Atlanta sports talk radio station. In a recent interview with Paul Finebaum, here is what Scott had to say about you, my fellow Alabamian:

“As a resident of Alabama, you have a self-esteem issue to begin with, because all of your life, from the national media, you’ve been told your state is essentially a racist backwater. So Alabama fans or Auburn fans are willing to take this criticism because they don’t have the self-esteem to stand up for themselves and say, ‘I’m not a dope, an idiot. It wasn’t my fault we lost to Utah. You can’t treat me that way, Nick Saban. Take it back. You’re doing a great job. I want to like you. But you can’t give me this B.S. About we had anything to do with the Sugar Bowl. That’s nonsense.’”

To give you some background, Chadd Scott is a former crony of Colin Cowherd, working as his producer for “The Herd”, Cowherd’s radio program. In my humble opinion, Cowherd is possibly the king of all sports radio douchebags. This balding bag of wind with an accent his mother couldn’t even love has yet to find a topic for discussion that he isn’t an expert on, spewing idiocy like a sprinkler on a hot summer day. And as my high school football coach used to say, “If you run with a dog with fleas, you’re gonna get fleas.” Hence, we have Chadd Scott.

Scott is now away from Cowherd, out on his own, trying to make a name for himself. His comments about Alabamians were in regard to the Alabama fan base and our response to Nick Saban’s comments about the Sugar Bowl loss. Specifically, what Saban observed as our lack of enthusiasm for it.

I’ll cover that subject in brief; I was among the thousands there, seeing us get picked apart like a carcass in shark infested waters. It was ugly, and I spent a lot of money to see ugly that night. I wasn’t happy, and when Saban made those comments, I didn’t agree with him.

But it stopped there.

But the media, in particular those who are members of “the Nick Saban hate club”…of which Chadd Scott is a card carrying member…wanted it to go so much farther. They wanted a scene rivaling any protest on the news from the Middle East, storming the athletic complex, demanding an apology.

But while Scott asserts that we are all stupid followers, I assert the exact opposite citing the same evidence he used for his deduction.

Alabama fans are extremely intelligent football fans who know football but are able to think for themselves. We see see incompetence when it’s before us. We see a lack of athletes. We see an inability to compete because we don’t have SEC caliber talent on our team. And we know a leader when we see one. We know when someone has been handed the keys to an expensive machine known as Tide football. And we know that job is an extremely difficult one because we’ve seen so many before him fail…or not even make it to the first game.

And we were sick of it. It was disgusting to watch. Like a loved one drinking themselves to death, we watched in horror as Alabama football sank to depths it has and should never sink to. And finally, after literal years of crimson mediocrity, we have a leader.

But while we’re an intelligent bunch, we also know Saban is human. And if he makes a comment we don’t agree with, we don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater, storming Tuscaloosa to demand answers. We understand how the local and national opinionated infotainment media works, following the script of the movie “Wag the Dog” to incite the general populous to create news events to stir interest, ensure listeners, sell advertising and stay in business.

Scott had much more to say, but I won’t waste your time. “Shock Jocks” like him are like the skaters I used to know in high school. They try to call attention to themselves without wanting to “look” like they are trying to call attention to themselves. But in the end you have that same feeling in your stomach…like you just ate a piece of raw chicken.

I would ask Chadd that if he is so intelligent and we are so dumb, why does he have an extra “d” in his first name? Everybody on the planet knows “Chad” is spelled C-H-A-D. And I won’t mention that he holds a degree from Auburn. But, I digress. (But before I get back on topic, he had a few scathing comments about his alma mater as well.)

It humors me that he referenced racism in Alabama then used that same method of thinking to categorize an entire state of people based on his personal narrow-minded views. So, using that same logic, everyone in the city of Atlanta, where Scott now works, is an arrogant douchebag. Why? Because I have a voice, and that’s what I want to say. Isn’t that how it works, Chadd?
