2037-19: Apparently There is a Talons Team News Fan Club, And You Won't Believe Who's In It (Shocking!)

Phoenix, AZ--
 
Reports have surfaced recently of a rather esoteric group: the Talons Team News Fan Club and Appreciation Society.
 
Apparently, according to sources, the group meets regularly to comment upon, analyze, and revel in the witty and sardonic humor of Talons Team News articles. The group spends their time breathlessly awaiting the next Talons team News edition, even though it is sometimes months between articles. The subjects of Talons Team News editions ranges from hum-drum Team Preview articles, to more off the wall page turners describing the antics of the team and its players and personnel.
 
In a recent survey of the extant Talons Team News archive (conveniently available on websites such as montybrewster.net and www. angelfire.lycos.com/users/Talons_Team_News_Fanboy/content.html), a sampling of the article subjects include such diverse topics as Waiver Wire Shenanigans, Underage Drinking, Getting Yelled at by the Commish, and the Strategy of Doing Nothing. Digging deeper, we see missives about Talons GM Allegations, The HOF Is A Joke, and even an article about the club's "Record Breaking" 26th Team News, a mark that has since been broken, much to the delight of said Fan Club.
 
So who are the members of this mysterious group? So far, only one has come forward. He goes by the name of "ted", and his listed occupation is a General Manager, though of what we cannot be certain. This "ted" has been known to comment extensively on Talons Team News Article posts, even vowing to do so on every single one of the articles. Not much is known about ted, but his profile seems to include a shield and two swords, so there is speculation that he may be a travelling performer at various Midwestern U.S. Renaissance Faires.
 
If there are any other members of this mysterious and elusive Fan Club, make yourselves known! Come out of the closet and be proud of your interests and passion! No longer must you hide behind the anonymity of a VPN and a tor browser! Join "ted" and others of his ilk and celebrate the things which you love most, even if they are stupid internet posts that "jiminyhopkins" makes when he gets bored, and sometimes drunk.
 
After all, when was the last time you saw FIVE Talons Team Newses in ONE DAY?!

Dammit. I think this means I lose. I'm not clever enough to come up with a good rebuttal. I'm not going to stop though. If I can be anything it's stubborn.
