Welcome to The Falcoholic

New, comments

We’re glad you’re here!

NFL: Miami Dolphins at Atlanta Falcons Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The wait is finally over. The 2019 NFL season is nearly upon us. We wanted to take this opportunity to welcome new readers, say hello to the folks who have been around, and do what we can to help all of you get the most out of your experience in our community.

The Falcoholic is a site for Falcons fans, run by Falcons fans. We do our best to cover the team fairly and accurately, but we also do it from the perspective of wanting them to win and being exasperated and surly when they don’t. Here’s everything you need to know about our community.

Who we are

We’re a group of Falcons fans who all landed at this blog where we get to write about the team we love and experience the highs and lows of fandom with each other and with all of you. You can learn more about our staff from the Falcoholic’s Staff Spotlight series we ran this summer.

What we do

We cover the Atlanta Falcons, but we do it our way. You’ll find everything from Xs and Os analysis, to day-to-day beat reporting and breaking news, to absurdly funny parody articles, to lamentations about the team crushing our collective spirit right here on the site on a daily basis. We’re hoping we have reason to do a lot of positive pieces this season.

Where we do it

Well, here, obviously, but that’s not all. You can also find us on Twitter and Facebook, on Instagram, on our slate of podcasts, and on our Falcoholic Live show that airs on Facebook.

When we do it

Twenty-four seven, baby. The grind never stops.

Why we do it

We do it because we love this team and the community we’ve built here at The Falcoholic. We’ve weathered everything, from Eugene Robinson, to Michael Vick, to that disastrous 2007 season when Bobby Petrino had a staffer leave notes in players lockers and then snuck out of town under cover of darkness. We’ve screamed in joy at the big plays, and we’ve screamed in frustration at the bad ones. We’ve stood firm in our fandom even after 28-3. If that didn’t run us off, nothing will.

We’re assuming that if you’re reading this, you feel the same way. There are ways you can express your fandom right here on The Falcoholic, from participating in our comment section on articles to sharing your hottest takes in FanPosts on the site. Just be mindful that all comments, usernames, and FanPosts fit within our community guidelines.

So welcome to The Falcoholic. We’re glad you’re here, and we’re looking forward to experiencing the 2019 season with you.
