Finebaum: "I'll root for anybody against Clemson"

Because we beat the SEC or what? Did he explain his hatred?


Re: Finebaum: "I'll root for anybody against Clemson"

No explanation. Caller said she knew he wasn't going to pull for USC over Missouri. He said he didn't care who won games. But then said he cheered for the conference and was rooting for Auburn over Clemson. Then made his statement, "I'll root for anybody against Clemson."

He's on the phone with Squirrel from Mississippi and just got off the phone with Barbara from Wetumpka. He's made for these people. Doesn't take a high IQ.

That was probably before Dabo and Clemson beat his love child, Bama, to win the Natty.

It sure was because since then I have heard him say Clemson has the most delusional fans in the country.

His little tiff last year with Saban was just a little family quarrel. They have since kissed and made up!

What do you expect. Guy went to Memphis State... You need a pulse and be able to sign your name. Wait a minute, maybe just a pulse.

That's fine. He's not strapping a helmet on so all he can do is keep watching and keep hating while we keep winning.

The reason he feels that way is actually very simple. We are the only team that really threatens his beloved Crimson Tide. If we win again we will have supplanted Alabama as the premier team in college football. That would be horrible for his show and for his career .

Isn't that the same thing the Espin fiddle player said last year? Worked out well for us I'd say!

LOL. He just doesn't want to see Clemson beat Bama again.***

I think a Clemson fan called his show last year. Did not hear, but they got into a big disagreement. He is so temperamental he got his feelings hurt and blames caller!


And he knows Dabo won't go to Bama.


Posted: Sep 8, 2017 4:40 PM
 

Last year he was pro Clemson and Dabo, but has turned completely.


Re: And he knows Dabo won't go to Bama.


Posted: Sep 8, 2017 4:51 PM
 

I think someone whispered in his ear, "Listen up, Boy. it ain't Clemson that's putting those dollars in your wallet. You don't want to mess up the deal we have and find yourself wearing concrete shoes".

Last year he even said that he would not have a problem


Posted: Sep 8, 2017 5:44 PM
 

having his kid play for Dabo. Guess he was assuming Dabo would be at Bama.

OK so earlier in the year he says Clemson folks are some of the nicest people he has ever met and now he lets some anonymous smack talking fans on the internet change his opinion and say we are an "intoxicated" fanbase. I know we ruined the SEC narrative Paul but don't let someone clowning around on the internet ruin your opinion of our fanbase. Social media, chat rooms and forums are full of anonymous people who will say anything. You can't allow people like that to sway your opinion on anything much less your opinion on people.

"If they like you, they're probably beating you."

We should hope Finebaum despises Clemson. That means Dabo and company are a threat to his favorite team.

He knows we're the one team that has a legitimate shot at ending Alabama's dynasty.

If Saban tripped getting out of the shower, Finebaum would be the first one there to catch him with his mouth wide open.


Seriously, back when he started on the local radio


Posted: Sep 8, 2017 5:47 PM
 

stations, didn't he get all the Bama people fired up because he did not hesitate to slam them?


He's just baiting us. He really needs the viewers.***

Unfortunately there are a few refs who feel the same way and should never be able to call our games in the future.

My guess is that in context, the meaning would be different. He could have been joking. Without context you can't honestly say that's what he actually meant.

I do know that he does hate some Clemson fans. We have our share of a-holes just like every other team.

Google that quote and the only place it appears is on Tigernet. If he were actually to say that, it would be all over the web.
