A bammer posted on my FB this comment. While I was commenting to a fellow Auburn Fan about our new hire. I don't have time to argue and really don't want to argue because I don't have time but please read this comment and give me some feedback:
"we come from a long line of Champions we are winners by birth and the grace of God. so it was only a matter of time before we raised back up to prominence like we always have been. y'all history is not littered with all the championships like ours. see at Alabama we hold the secret recipe to championships and at Auburn you are just trying to find the ingredients. don't get me wrong as much as I do not like auburn. I would like to see you competitive again so we don't just mop the floor with you every time we play but after seeing your terrible new hires after terrible new hire. I think you're in for at least a decade of getting dominated by us"
This crap just absolutely makes me want to scream! They worry so much about Auburn! I can't remember the last time I even give a crap about Alabama!
My response would be "lol"
It's simple, say this...
"I'm still trying to figure out why y'all erected a statue of a man that's 3-3 against Auburn."
Run to the Hills! Run for your lives! We Comin'!!! WDE!
You can't fix stupid, so just ignore it.
Dude, don't feed the trolls.
BTW, an Alabama fan hasn't won anything. He's lived vicariously though others while calling the three hours he spends watching someone else work hard and achieve every fall Saturday and the countless hours he trolls fans of other programs during the rest of the week, a life.
Frankly there's better than a 90% chance that any random Alabama fan has never even stepped foot inside their stadium.
Oh, and facebook allows you to delete comments.

You can tell it is from a bammer though. The grammar in that message is horrendous
Fearless and true.
Point out the 1941 MNC that they claim ( they actually finished 3rd in the SEC and 20th in the final AP poll ) and most of their NC claims are BS. If AU used bama math we would claim 9 NC's ( 1910, 1913, 1914, 1957,1958, 1983,1993, 2004 and 2010 ), let him look them up they are there and ever bit as good as most of the ones he brags about. Then just tell him like Pat Dye said updykes love bama football, Auburn people love Auburn, go screw his self - WDE
ON TO VICTORY - STRIKE UP THE BAND
"you're so vain, I'll bet you think this post is about you, don't you? Don't you?"
Tell him you want extra fries with your order
when the going gets weird the weird turn pro
1. Grammar is not your strong point eh?
2. I wasn't aware that you were related to the entire Alabama fanbase genetically, makes the term "marrying your sister" much clearer, thanks.
3. I know you can appreciate the struggle Auburn has with making bad hires - Alabama couldn't hire a good coach from 1996 to 2008... that's like 22 years of bad coaching hires. Glad you finally got it right after a generation.
Seriously, don't take me too serious.
Ask him how much he has to do with any of Bama's wins or Auburn's losses...
Since he has nothing to do with either school except to keep up with them, any thing he says to you negatively is just a personal attack on you and you are a typical Auburn fan, therefore you are too classy to attack him personally for anything as trivial as football.
(Does he have a pretty wife that needs anything though?)
Attitude is Everything
Ask him if he knows what the all time record is in the Iron Bowl Series when they play the game in Bryant Denny (aka Jordan Hare West). Alabama 2 wins out of 10 tries. Not too good. They can claim all the National Championships they want but Auburn has owned them in their own stadium (80% win rate). Ask him how he likes those apples.
First, understand that there is nothing you can say to "win" the argument. Bama fans such as these are the sidewalk alumni that only have a sense of self worth based on how their team does on Saturdays. They themselves usually don't have a lot of success in life so they live vicariously through the 11 guys on the field. They certainly don't have anything to do with it, unless you know a direct relationship between drinking PBR and eating pork rinds and how the team plays that I'm not aware of.
I have plenty of friends and family that are Alabama fans. Many are pretty classy. There is the usual joking that is good-natured. You give it and you get it. That's how it goes. And then there is the obnoxiousness that is at an entirely different level. When I come across those folks, I usually remind them of what Bear used to say about being classy as fans. That usually shuts them up pretty quick.
I know it's not what anyone wants to hear but taking the high road is the best thing to do. I've said some biting things in my day. At the end of the day, the most important thing is representing Auburn with class. Sometimes you just gotta let Bama be Bama.

The issue here is not the bammer... it's you for allowing them so much control over you. They are what they are and no amount of effort on your part will ever change that. You see, so many alabama fans (most of them never having actually been to tuscaloosa) have so much of their own self worth/self esteem tied up in how the tide does they can't change or even improve their behavior or outlook on life. It sad but true in so many instances. Heck, even Joab Thomas admitted as much back in the 1980s. He was ridiculed and eventually shown the door for speaking the truth. Are you stronger than those fans? Prove it by taking control of yourself. Swear off fans such as these, the Finebaums, Karles, Dunaways, and others across the state that by their actions and deeds prove they are not worthy of our attention. Will it be easy, no! The marketing/media in this state is designed to keep this UA/AU thing percolating 24/7, 365 days a year with UA designated as the primary focus unless news (usually negative) can be offered about AU. It usually takes about 21 days to change a habit or behavior. Start today. All Auburn, all the time. Ignore those things Bama because they don't really matter anyway. Pat Dye was wrong about some things but he was dead on about this. You don't control anything over there so put your energies into what you can control, making Auburn better in every way you can. I guarantee you that if you complete this process your world will improve. I did and I'm much better off because of it. Good luck.

Reply how Bear was a drunk and a womanizer? How they claim championships that don't count? How Saban cries anytime a rule doesn't fit them? How they are most sanctioned penalized team in the SEC right now? How auburn has owned them the last 7 out of 10.
I hardly argue with them because they are right, they win a lot more championships and are in the running a lot more then we are. While that is extremely important fact, it is not all that is to argue.
Otherwise, ignore them, and continue to follow AU on toward better days!!
