Yep. I shudder when they catch that on TV. Not a good look for anyone who thinks of Clemson the way I, and a lot of other I know, do. What has always been a great display of school pride becomes embarrassing very quickly.
intent of the RV isn’t female dog - it is a vulgarity intended to create a rise.
It doesn’t get a rise outta me - makes me sad for Clemson Family.
I see that RV and I think o310 state - alabamer - lsu - michigan (but mostly the suckeyes) ….. NOT our Clemson that I want my kids to know and love & embrace like I have since 5 years old - because it was different, an example of something more in a sea of all the same.
the cursing inserted into Tiger Rag. I thought about how my dad would react, listening to Clemson people shouting that AS PART OF OUR OWN FIGHT SONG, especially at a road game, and the possibility of other fans (kids especially) thinking that’s part of Clemson.
And I’m no stranger to that word. I curse. I’m not offended by any words per se. It’s all about context. That’s what makes them “offensive” sometimes. And this is one of them.
Spot on. I cuss too. I worked in manufacturing plants where it was considered normal. I do try to avoid the “F” word, especially in mixed company. There were certain things you just did not say in the company of a lady (sorry JStone). My dad used to teach us not to even say dang or doggone or shoot because you really meant something else. Unfortunately most people don’t feel that way these days and the worst of the vulgarities have become mainstream and far too widely (IMO) accepted. I’ll stick with “Go Tigers “!!
