Hypocrisy.

So, one of the things I really enjoy doing is reading the SoundOffs at http://www.al.com.

Why? Because, it is highly amusing to watch people get so frustrated over football and spout hatred at each other. Check it out some time.

The most hilarious one, however, has nothing to do with either school. In fact, this person is attempting to make fun of those commenting as I am. The problem?

I’ll show you.

MissionImpossible:

“You know whats sad? People that live vicariously through college football kids because they don’t have a life of their own! Reading these posts from “assumed” adults will make a sane adult want to vomit. Do you people have NO life whatsoever? Do you realize that the college kids you live your lives through do not even know you exist? Some real immature people on here need to GET A LIFE! I am assuming that most of you have NEVER done or accomplished anything yourself, so you live through college kids. And, by the way, how many plays will YOU play in the Iron Bowl? Geesh!!!! Losers.”

Now, all a lot of what he/she says is true. People do tend to go overboard in the sport. But let me just point at that the purpose of a SoundOff is to get Auburn and Alabama fans blasting each other to generate views and attention. And sales. Clearly, it works. But let’s just take this guy’s rant line by line.

*Start notes*

“You know whats sad? People that live vicariously through college football kids because they don’t have a life of their own!”

He has a point. But he started it rather rudely. And ended with an exclamation mark. Those should be reserved for surprises and shockers. His statement just rudely states people don’t have a life of their own and isn’t particularly true.

“Reading these posts from “assumed” adults will make a sane adult want to vomit. Do you people have NO life whatsoever?”

Come on now, what actual adult would say that sentence? Then, back to the childish and trollish claim that the commenters have no life. My personal favorite seeing as how he is a commenter…and not even a fan of either team. Ah, sweet hypocrisy.

*Skip the middle mess, it’s boring.*

“I am assuming that most of you have NEVER done or accomplished anything yourself, so you live through college kids. And, by the way, how many plays will YOU play in the Iron Bowl? Geesh!!!! Losers.”

Assume away, asshole. You know what they say about assumptions. Capped ‘never’, of course. Classic troll move. Just to highlight the fact that he/she is trying to be insulting. I mean, that’s made obvious when he calls the other commenters ‘losers’. But I can’t get over the use of ‘Geesh’. Geesh? Really? I mean, really? Then more exclamation marks to cap off his heart felt speech.

*End notes*

Apparently, this guy feels so strongly that people overreact when it comes to college sports that he decided to go to http://www.al.com and click on the SoundOffs. He further decided to read the comments. Finally, he decided he was such a hardworking and busy person and had such a life that he would post a comment. And that, readers, is a lesson in hypocrisy.
