Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation I’m sorely disappointed in the #BirdGang. You might bedisappointed in us, but we play well at home. And we leanon y’all to pick us up. And your absence helped the Arizona Cardinals lose Sunday.Really. Indeed, there were a lot of Steelers fans at the game, andthey were a loud and boisterous bunch. Then again, theplayers could have done their part and played well, givingthe visitors no reason to cheer. Maybe that’s just silly,but the only thing at University of Phoenix Stadium Sundaythat was uncalled for was the Cardinals’ play.Say what you want, but I’m a fan first. When my team isdown, that’s when you are the loudest, that’s when youneed the most support D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Fair enough, if there were more Cardinals fans in thestadium the Cardinals defense would not have allowed a 10-play, 64-yard touchdown drive on Pittsburgh’s nextpossession. Whatever the fans are making is clearly toomuch, as they don’t deserve their high salary when theyare cheering like that. For shame.But the crowd is pro steelers, so we can’t even use ourgreatest asset, Our Home Crowd… Home field is huge insports. If the team’s greatest asset is really the crowd thenthey’re in trouble because, well, they’ll only have theircrowd in five of the remaining 10 games. Suffice to saythe team should not be expected to win on the roadbecause, of course, they will be without their greatestasset. Pity their greatest asset isn’t talent, becausethat could show up in any stadium.That’s why they give it to the best team…all in all, ifyour for me and for us, then be for me and for us.If you’re a real #BirdGang member, I salute you, and weneed you going forward. Peace The Arizona Cardinals lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers 32-20 Sunday.The Arizona Cardinals allowed Ben Roethlisberger to throwfor 361 yards and three touchdowns and the ArizonaCardinals lost their fifth straight game.But the team’s motto is “We do this together,” and thatincludes the fans. So, as safety Hamza Abdullah pointedout on his twitter page after Sunday’s game, theydeserve part of the blame. 0 Comments Share Top Stories True, homefield advantage can help. A loud, screamingcrowd can intimidate an opposing offense, sometimes evenmaking it difficult to run plays. But Abdullah saying theteam plays well at home, while accurate, is an assertionlargely helped by the team’s ineptitude on the road.So in a way, “well” is relative.20,000 out of 60,000 were Pittsburgh fans. That’s absurdand uncalled for. The #BirdGang is better than that. That’s kind of Mr. Abdullah, saluting the real Cardinalsfans. But you fairweather fans, you know, the ones whodecided not to watch your team lose Sunday, do not get hispraise. So what if maybe you had better things to do ordecided to sell your tickets so you could pay a bill ortwo, the point is you weren’t at the game and thereforeare not a real fan. It is what it is. Yeah, you can call us names, and say wehaven’t given anyone anything to cheer for, but it’s 17-14, and we have momentum Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away That sounds all well and good, but the fact of the matteris it’s hard to cheer when your team keeps losing andlooks bad in the process. University of Phoenix Stadiumwas rocking when LaRod Stephens-Howling scored on a 73-yard touchdown pass to cut the deficit to three, but hadlittle reason to cheer after that.
