'Operation Cluck': How pathetic are the giants fans that even if they don't have Barry Bonds they still bring out the pathetically stupid rubber chickens and hang them up when Odalis Perez of the Dodgers walks the giants catcher and 8th hitter Mike Matheny with 2 outs and a runner on third to get to the pitcher and the final out of the inning. Giants fans, please get a life because you sure don't know anything about the game of baseball. If you did you wouldn't be carrying about those stupid chickens with you and you sure as hell wouldn't be hanging a lame chicken up on your wall because a Giant got walked intentionally. Giants fans please find some new excuses as to why your team just plain sucks. Thanks. Your Truly, The Dodger Fans

Giants fans please find some new excuses as to why your team just plain sucks. I gotta believe that 8 consecutive seasons of being 1st or 2nd in their division, 4 playoff appearances and a World Series appearance would not be defined as "sucking". Los Angeles has only been in the top two 4 times and only once in the playoffs in that same time period. Besides the rivalry rant, I'm not even sure what your link was about, since it's no longer active...

Go rant somewhere else, or at least provide a functioning link.

Any San Fran Giant hater is a friend of mine.

Good kripes - are all Dodger fans this ridiculous? Best knee-jerk FPP in some time.

Giants fans please find some new excuses as to why your team just plain sucks. How about they be enviro friendly and use the same ones that the Dodgers have been using for years! / disgruntled Dodgers fan

As a reformed Dodgers' fan I must admit I always found the one-sided rivalry amusing but confusing. In Dodger stadium everyone is laid back—and barely paying attention, to be honest. While in SF they are chanting "Beat LA" even when they aren't playing the Dodgers. I chalked it up to an inferiority complex at the time (Barry Bonds was still in Pittsburgh at the time), but they have no excuses now as they have fielded very good teams for years. Still, this is a dumb post.

I love the Giants-Dodgers NoCal/SoCal rivalry, probably because of all the years that Jim Rome has made a big deal out of it on his radio show. As an aside to Kurt, I would have deleted this link if the discussion wasn't 10 comments deep when I saw it, because the Giants' chicken page isn't worth visiting. The subject of the rubber chicken walk is good, as described in this recent column, but a better link is needed.

I do wonder why they would still have the chicken promotion when Barry's on the DL - kinda misses the point. Nonetheless a Dodger fan (!?) complaining about this is pretty silly. You all seem to only go to games for the off-chance of seeing the stars of the latest FOX sitcom in the stands. Remember the game starts in the first inning (not the third) and generally ends in the ninth (not the seventh). Also don't let Jeff Kent wash his monster truck during the season - he's prone to accidents :)

Like jasonspaceman, I am also a Dodger fan. I do not support this message. And JohnSFO you obviously haven't ever had to park in or around Chavez Ravine. In short: Forget it, Donny. You're out of your element.
