    Ken Suguira makes the same point I'm trying to make:

    "4. I’m not sure I want to extend the discussion about Johnson’s remarks, but I find one thing curious about the superiority that some Tech fans (or at least alumni) proclaim towards Georgia fans that hopefully can generate some thoughtful debate. By publicly proclaiming it, I think they’re helping extend one of their most enduring problems – filling Bobby Dodd Stadium.

    It should be made clear that Johnson’s comment was referring specifically to the fan who called in to bark, not to all Georgia fans. He had said earlier in the day that most of his interactions with Bulldogs fans are cordial. He said something regrettable and apologized. I think we can all degree that that caller probably needs a new hobby.

    This isn’t about him, but rather what feels like a pervasive attitude among Tech fans, if this blog’s comments are any barometer. And even if they’re not very reflective, they’re still comments from unofficial representatives of the school available to anyone with an Internet connection.

    I am fairly confident that Dan Radakovich would only be too happy to accept season-ticket orders from whatever Walmart or McDonald’s employee who wanted to place them. However, what blue-collar worker, even if he likes Tech’s offense or Johnson’s brashness, would want to be in a stadium knowing that there are Tech fans who look down on him because he didn’t go to Tech and doesn’t make six figures?

    You can say, No, we’re not talking about every Walmart employee. It’s just a putdown of the quality of a Georgia education and its fans in general. It’s just a joke. And not every Tech fan feels that way.

    I get that. Regardless, the line of logic is Georgia fan = Walmart employee = inferior to Tech people. I understand it’s a joke, but it’s probably not very funny to people who work at Walmart and people who for whatever reason didn’t go to college.

    Further, the “I bet you didn’t even go to Georgia” insult basically is a message, intended or not, to every fan who roots Tech but didn’t go to school there, “You can come visit our country club and we’ll take your money, but you’ll never be a member.”

    I imagine none of this is new, and you can call me an oversensitive baby. I probably am. But if you’re wondering why Tech can’t fill up Bobby Dodd or grow its fan base, I think you have to consider it as one reason, however small.

    It goes both ways. Some Georgia fans’ use of “nerd” as a pejorative is equally confounding and material for another blog."

    Damn wuzjrbuzz now that is funny as hell! I am glad to see that GT actually has some fans with a sense of humor, reading some of these other posts was making me think otherwise. "Ask your mama to dial the Paul Johnson show!" Damn that's funny as hell!!

    TO HELL WITH GEORGIA!!!

    CPJ is a well paid public figure with a job that entails a high level of media exposure...he's held to a different standard. I don't think it's a big deal, but there are people who aren't GT or UGA fans that probably don't like GT too much today. You can say "who gives a crap", but for a fanbase that struggles to fill up 55,000+ seat stadium, that's just bad business.
    I find it hard to believe, impossible to believe in fact, that a Walmart employee won't go to a Georgia Tech game at Bobby Dodd because Paul Johnson cracked wise on them. Jeez, get over it. We all know he made a mistake and apologized. What he meant to say was K-Mart.

    What he said was tongue in cheek, I am glad that is wasn't me on the air when that idiot calls in and barks, I am positive I would have said more than CPJ said. If I had dollar for every time some of our policiticians have misspoke or tried to add something funny to the equation, I would be a very wealthy person.

    I guess I grew up different than most of you, I grew up hating Georgia, I hate the attitude of their fans, for the most part they have some good fans, but it is that minority that gets under my skin, like the fella who calls into the Paul Johnson Call-In Show and instead of asking an intelligent, thoughtful and provocative question, this in-bred barks like a F**KING DAWG,give me a effin' break will you. Kudos to our HC, for being gentle to this in-bred, if I had been the recepient of that call I would have blistered his barking mother-f**king ass.

    TO HELL WITH GEORGIA!!!!

    In hindsight and with time to think what he should have said was that the caller was another U of G PhD. candidate in animal husbandry. But the truth is that with a rivalry this intense, saying good morning can be construed as an offensive or badgering comment. So all of my childhood friends of the Georgia persuasion should just go to hell.Which is what I will tell them at the '12 reunion.

    Fact is, the majority of the nation thinks ugag fan's barking is pretty retarded. So it's not going to offend anyone but ugag fans, mission accomplished.
    So you're saying you hate going to a store that is five blocks squared, forcing you to walk a mile or so to save 20 cents? That is completely unAmerican. You probably are a communist. As was the caller.
