    Best UK fans: the vast majority of us, expecially the KSR show thread regulars.

    Worst UK fans: player tweeters, constant gripers, the entitled and the selfish.

    UK fans that cannot be rehabilitated: any guy that even considers trying on one of those man onesies.

    Start calling out all these fake fans!!! Every time they comment something negative, put them in their place. Best time to ever be a UK fan is now, enjoy this ride!

      Most are immature losers living vicariously through sports teams; others just try to stir up something.

      I assume most are just miserable negative jerks who are that way in pretty much all aspects of their lives.

    Ugh, is Fox really going to have to go to Philadelphia? Please no.



    • J-Dub421
      10:27 am May 17, 2017 Permalink

      I hope not. A lot of the “experts” are saying Sacramento, which makes sense. The prediction I can’t figure out is Fox to Phoenix. The Suns already have three point guards!!! They don’t need another guard!!

      Would be hilarious if the Lakers take Fox…if I were them I would think seriously before buying into the Ball freak show. And Fox is just a better player.



    • J-Dub421
      10:32 am May 17, 2017 Permalink

      Skal and Willie have been playing well too. Maybe the Kings can start winning more games if they get a competent floor general like Fox.



    • Realme
      10:33 am May 17, 2017 Permalink

      I’m confused why the prognosticators think the Lakers will choose Ball just because UCLA fans want them to. Choose the guy that fits your needs and helps you win, not the popular one.



    • J-Dub421
      10:36 am May 17, 2017 Permalink

      Their management is in love with Ball for some reason. Despite clear evidence that Fox is better.



    • J-Dub421
      10:38 am May 17, 2017 Permalink

      Let’s be honest though, the last great pick made by the Lakers was Kobe like 20 years ago. The Lakers aren’t known for smart picks.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:44 am May 17, 2017 Permalink

      Sounds like the Celtics have made some very smart moves. #1 pick and still alive in the playoffs. Looks like that trade with Brooklyn turned out a lot better for them than it did for Brooklyn.

    I’m 51 and love the old “alternative” acts like RHCP. One of the best shows I attended was back in 99 when they played Freedom Hall. They had the Foo Fighters as their opening act, and Dave Grohl wandered all over the arena playing his guitar – including the upper arena. Great show!

    Wish I could have been there last night, but TBTB – Too Broke, Too Busy. 🙁

    I think the worst fan behavior is the ones who somehow feel as if the players owe them something. Most often these goobers didnt even go to UK but somehow think that they have the influence to decide what is best for the players. Since these people are so casual about assuming why our players sometimes choose financial security over returning to school, i will be casual in assuming that the goobers are middle to upper middle class white guys who feel attacked in todays changing culturial landscape and just want the good ol days where everybody lived by the white way of doing things ;D

      Mostly it’s just a desire to not be the one group it’s okay to be bigoted against. When major national politicians laugh out loud because white life expectancy is plummeting, it makes these folks nervous. No one likes being the target of hate, after all.

      Who put him in the White House? Don’t blame me, I’m a registered Independent.

      In all seriousness, I switched my registration to independent during election season, and I feel like I grew more free and wiser. Highly recommend divorcing yourselves from either of the self interested and childish main parties.



    • Booby Petrino
      11:18 am May 17, 2017 Permalink

      I’m not switching bc I get vote leave for primaries and elections, and Independents aren’t always on the ticket (esp primaries). Would take away from paid time off work.

      Well, at the very least, don’t vote the party line. Try to take the time to learn a little bit about the candidates’ positions and vote intelligently – instead of this stupid “my team versus your team” mentality.

    What do you mean Greatful Dead has no hits? “Truckin'”?

    Widespread Panic and My Morning Jacket are both nationally known acts that have no major hits.



    • CATandMONKEY
      11:30 am May 17, 2017 Permalink

      Casey Jones, Friend of the Devil…perhaps not hits but songs that many people know even if seldom heard on the radio.
      Evidently Matt never wore out at least one cassette copy of American Beauty by playing it non-stop in his $500 car over a summer between semesters.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:44 am May 17, 2017 Permalink

      C&M, the problem is that modern radio, and radio in the Louisville market in particular, basically sucks hind tit. Since ClearChannel got involved, everything is completely market driven formulaic bullshit. When you have suits involved with picking rock and roll songs for the radio there is no other outcome except for it to suck. All of the “classic rock” stations play the same 3 hits by the same 25 artists over, and over, and over, ad nauseum. Take a listen to WFPK on Saturday afternoons when Duke is doing “Relics” for what classic rock radio should be. The problem is that real disc jockeys went the way of the dinosaur years ago. You take the human element out of something creative and it goes to crap.

      End of rant. ***

      That station that used to be ESPN in Lexington plays better rock songs than the others, but of course why would anyone listen to music on an am station. Sounds terrible.

      Been a fan of “The new 92” since it started. I played in a band with one of their sales directors and was fortunate to sort of know Duke very casually even in his QMF days.
      Radio consolidation in the mid 90s…yuck.

    So Shannon is saying the Nickleback sucks because they went mainstream? Same can be said for a lot of bands – Foreigner, Journey, REO Speedwagon, etc. All of these bands started out with a much harder edge, and went to the formulaic ballads for more airplay.
