November 4, 2009 Urban Word of the Day
someone who believes that their vast and ultimately unnecessary knowledge of sports makes them a better sports watcher. they will often ridicule, or speak condescendingly towards someone of lesser sports knowledge.
Louis: wow! that was a great touchdown pass...
Leo: thats what quarterbacks do...idiot...
Louis: don't be such a fucking sport snob
n. Someone who considers themselves a "true fan" of a band and is very very touchy about it. They are convinced that they are the band's best fans and see everyone else as less enthusiastic, less devoted, less knowledgeable, etc. A band snob is prone to hating on new fans: calling them fake or whatever. They also have a tendency to stop liking the band once they become "mainstream." This happens a lot with semi-obscure bands that suddenly become popular.
Ashley: Omigod I LOVE All Time Low so much!!!! They're sooooo awesome!
Pat: Please. You only know what, one song? I liked them back when they first started. And I hate all their new stuff, their other CD was so much better.
Ashley: Don't be such a band snob.
Snob Ball is what soccer is transformed into, when its national governing body (in a country like Australia, Canada, USA etc) decides to abandon the word "Soccer" and tries to hijack the word "Football". Not just in spite of the fact that there is already a local game called Football, but *because* of it.more...
You see, in each of these countries there is an undercurrent of soccer fans with a collective chip on their shoulder, who resent the fact that soccer is regarded locally as a boring and weak European game, enjoyed here only by "Children, Snobs and Hooligans". Many of these soccer fans secretly dream of a day when the local game of Football is wiped out and forgotten. Some of them even work in the media.
When Soccer converts to Snob Ball, it harnesses this resentment in the form of snobbery, firstly by sending out a strong signal that it is going to hijack the word "Football", a long-held ambition of many Soccer Snobs. Within a short space of time, the national soccer body changes its name, for instance from "Soccer Australia" to "Football Federation Australia". It forces all state/province and local-level soccer clubs and associations to do the same. It places slogans on television and on billboards nationwide linking Soccer with the word "Football". For greater effect, this may coincide with a high-profile revamp of the national soccer league.
Players and officials of the sport are instructed to insert the word "Football" as many times into one sentence as possi...
A person who dismisses entire genres of art or entertainment - whether of music, literature, film, visual art etc - as being uninteresting, dumb, below them, or just not what they're into, and refuses to partake of their usage. It may denote avoidance of an entire art/entertainment medium or to subgenres within a medium. It may mean that a person avoids one or more genres out of disdain for them particularly, or, that he/she idolizes one to the ignorance of all others.more...
Within the different art mediums there are many typical categories that are routinely shunned:
Within music people are often heard to say they will listen to anything besides rap and country. A variety of styles of music throughout history are often labelled 'classical' and seen in a narrow light - usually viewed categorically as light music - and are never experienced by the unfortunate ignoramus.
In literature there are many who would never dream of reading anything found in the science fiction section of a book store. Some people will only read non-fiction, believing that all fiction is a waste of time. Even within genres there may be subgenres that are ignored, such as beat poetry within poetry.
Some film fanatics wouldn't be caught ...
Especially useful in countries that call it soccer, (eg USA, Australia), where snobby soccer fans insist on calling it 'football' even though there is already a game called football in that country.
Dave: Did you see the soccer the other day?
Matt: It's called FOOTBALL you jerk. The whole world calls it football.
Dave: But it's called soccer in this country, what is your problem with that? We already have a game called football here.
Matt: My problem is you're an ignorant piece of trash, and your so-called 'football' is the most pathetic game in the world.
Dave: Now I know why they call it Snob Ball. How do you expect to attract people to your sport with that sort of attitude?
A person who has very little understanding of a sport, and thinks that he can make up this lack of understanding with a great knowledge of irrelevant, unnecessary statistics. Instead of actually watching "his team's" games, or ever attempting to play the sport, this person spends a great deal of time on the internet looking up ridiculous statistics. So while this person has the ability to recall a great deal of stats, he is still for the most part ignorant and not a real fan, just an internet fan. When real fans are actually discussing the sport, an internet fan usually butts in with some irrelevant statistics thinking he will sound smart, but really sounds like a jackass, and a straight up noob. Similar to a Sport Snob, but with less understanding of the game and even more of a tool.
Dude 1 : Chris Paul is looking like a stud this year
Dude 2: Yeah he runs that pick and roll so sweet. I see his shot has come a long way as well. He could very well be the best point guard in the league
Internet fan: No way. He is a career 35% three point shooter and his 2.6 turnovers per game stat is troubling.
Dude 1/2: Dude you're just a fuckin internet fan
