    Re: Vols fans all up in arms with Coach Saban as guest speaker in Tennessee

    This isn't the first time nor will it be the last, that Saban was in Tennessee as a guest speaker at an event. DWI Vols.

    Re: Vols fans all up in arms with Coach Saban as guest speaker in Tennessee

    I will be attending this event as my good friend is the President of the Chamber there. Here is a sample of one out of several emails he has received regarding the event. The funny thing is that they have sold over 950 tickets already, and have had to move the event to a football stadium close by...... FYI, they had Fulmer and some key members of the 1998 national championship to speak at this event last year and sold just over 250 tickets total.....enjoy

    It was great talking to you on Friday. The email below is just one of the many we have received. It is really amazing how some of these people are acting. I have attached the billboard it is on I-75 not far from the Lenoir City exit. Im glad you are going to be here for the dinner if youll send me your address Ill get the tickets in the mail this week.
    Have a great day.


    I thought it was a joke when I read that the Chamber of Commerce in Athens was inviting Nick Saban to speak!! If this is true, then I have lost ALL respect for your organization! I can only hope that the people who made this decison are not TN fans because that would be the biggest "stab in the back"
    they could make. I can only assume we have a Bama lover sitting on this committee/board or whatever you call it and this person had enough "power"
    to make this happen.

    This makes me want to NEVER support anything in Athens ever again. I have relatives there but I will do my best to never do business in Athens. I hope the guy who posted this on Vol Chat can turn a lot of people against you if you truly did this. I don't want to hear that this isn't about football....bull!!!! Yes it is...the bottom line is that you are in TN. You would NEVER find a city or town that is fairly close to the home of the Crimson Turds that would DARE invite TN's coach to speak. NEVER!!!! Why?!
    Because AL folks are too loyal and they wouldn't buy the ticket to the event...that's why?!

    I have already read the response you sent someone and I have this to say about it..

    1) Nick Saban isn't going to benefit the Athens community any more than a great leader from TN!!!!! Period!!!!

    2) I grew up in Monroe County and your argument that Sweetwater has fans of other teams is correct but that's the case in Tuscaloosa, AL or anywhere you look!!!! And for your information, I can assure you that at least 80% of the people in Sweetwater are die-hard TN fans so that argument is extremely weak!!

    3) No, the businesses may not have made the decision but YOU represent them and you made the decision. Someone has to pay for this pathetic decision so the only way many of us can do that is to stop spending money in Athens.
    That's our right of course!

    4) Regardless of what you or anyone who had anything to do with this decision may think, you CANNOT be so naive as to think that Saban agreed out of the goodness of his heart...please....this shrewd person is doing it to benefit recruiting...PERIOD!! Don't for a second think differently or you are a fool!

    So, on behalf of the vast number of TN fans, thank you for doing your part in helping Saban and the hated AL program. I can only hope that people are not dumb enough to support your event. I know I would absolutely throw away any ticket to this event if I knew you invited someone like him. We'll see if true Vol fans support you or if the AL fans who do happen to live in our great state will be the ones to fill the room. I can only hope it ends up being the supporters of that program who show up. No true die-hard fan would dare support this...

    Congrats on showing your true colors...I imagine it is crimson and white.
    Perhaps you should move there where you can listen to Saban all the time rather than bring that crap here to Big Orange Country!!!!

    It seems like they both just came apart at the appearance of Saban at Bama. They both came off of pretty good seasons in 2007 to just completely fall apart in 2008 and both Chubby and Tubby were told to hit the road. It's been up and down for the barn, but mainly just down for the viles.

    So, the guy who has won 3 of the last 4 crystal footballs, the guy who has never uttered (or is it uddered... ) a bad word about ewe tee, the guy who promoted Coach Dooley to the point that ewe tee hired him as HC...suddenly HE is the nexus of ebil (sarcastic typo) in the world. He's coming to Tennessee to speak! Eunice, lock up the girls in the cellar, behind the still, and get me my shootin' iron!!!!

    All because he consistently makes ewe tee look like East Popcorn State every time we play them. Oh well, such is the SEC.

    East Popcorn State is greatly offended by this comparison.

    TN folks are poop heads. There, it had to be said.
    Ask me about my vow of silence.

    Sip, I believe you and I were separated at birth. Couldn't agree more.

    While I love the story and find this funny, I'd feel the same way as the Vols fans if Phat Phil were coming to Jasper to speak.

    I hope CNS comes to west Tennessee. It's a much better recruiting area and I'd buy a ticket.

    Living in Medina, I'd be right there with you.

    I wouldn't go listen to phil if he was giving a clinic on my neighborhood street.
