[QUOTE=crasherino;3531748]The thing is, there are "football people" and everyone else. I'm pretty sure that I know more than the "average fan" about all things football....but, I am also pretty sure that if I am in the company of "football people" talking football, I will probably struggle to comprehend what the hell they are talking about. They speak in a different jargon that we may understand some of, but don't really have the fluency to really participate in.
I think journalists, in general, lean more towards the fan side than the "football people" side.[/QUOTE]
----I totally agree with you...I have 2 friends that are coaches in the NFL and when they're in the same room it's like they're speaking a different language. I played throughout high school and have a pretty damn good understanding of the game and schemes and listening to them makes my head spin and my stomach sick.
