This morning we saw the hastag #sadFCDfan take off in DFW and unless my research was off, this was the first tweet that started the whole trend today:
Our back line, gives up a lot of goals. They had rather die than go a game without a red card. #sadFCDfan— Huck (@bjhuck) June 15, 2015
This definitely has come across as the loudest and most unified I've seen FCD fans since their collective voice back in 2013 to get former Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman out. Not surprisingly the frustration hasn't been directed towards Oscar Pareja or the players but all have been aimed at the ownership and their lack of spending to make this club competitive.
Because I'm stuck on a plane, with nothing better to do, I've decided to pour over the tweets and post some of my favorites.
I wonder if the Kool-Aid that the hUNT brothers make the FCD front office drink is named Mediocrity? #sadFCDfan— Huck (@bjhuck) June 15, 2015
Maybe if I spent a little more for the name brand cereal, I'd get a better quality, but I embrace thrifty mediocrity. #sadFCDfan— Brandon Beall (@bsbeall) June 15, 2015
Even if we get more nacho cheese, they'll probably cut back on chips and it'll just be this sloppy mediocre mess. #sadFCDfan— Kasey Baker (@KaseyJB) June 15, 2015
I watched the Jeff Goldblum laugh loop and it was more entertaining than an FCD game. #sadFCDfan— FCDrunk (@FCDrunk) June 15, 2015
I got beat up at lunch and the bully took all the three points I had in my pocket. Plus goal differential. #sadFCDfan— Walter (@El_Quimico) June 15, 2015
I hear the FO is saving $ on scarves next month by making it a rope. Convenient, the Hunts make me want to hang myself. #sadFCDfan— Walter (@El_Quimico) June 15, 2015
Our current run of form has forced me to wear a Cosby sweater and listen to sad bastard music. #SadFCDFan— Priceratops (@BrianDBG) June 15, 2015
The Hunts are so cheap I'm actually not even a real bull. I'm made of that Taco Bell mystery meat.. #sadFCDfan— The Drunken Hooper (@DrunkenHooper) June 15, 2015
I reached into my pocket thinking I found 3 Points but was disappointed to only find penny-pinchers. #sadFCDfan— Brian (@Wachhz) June 15, 2015
Floodlights aren't cheap to run. Can everyone shine their phones at the field on Wednesday night to create balanced lighting? #sadFCDfan— Dan Crooke (@Crooke86) June 15, 2015
FC Dallas is like Game of Thrones. Just as things start to look promising, some inconsiderate arsehole cuts your head off #SadFCDFan— Dan Crooke (@Crooke86) June 15, 2015
And you know things are bad when you're asking Jerry Jones to own your team.
