Fan Video Showdown Entry: Ridgefield’s Tiger’s Lair

|

With the voting portion complete, we continue with the video competition of the 2nd annual Overtime Fan Showdown.

Each of the nine schools involved are required to make a video of no less than two minutes, displaying their fans showing support at a game.

(Several schools are not participating in the video competition, and Greenwich has been granted an extension to get its video in on Tuesday; the video and equipment was left in school before the storm.)

Today we reveal the second entry, from Ridgefield’s famed Tiger’s Lair, one of the largest fan bases in the FCIAC and one that is among the best traveling to support their teams. This video offers the Lair in action during a recent basketball game.

After all the videos displayed, a panel of our sponsors will judge them. The winning school will receive 5 points. Second place is worth 3 points, and third place is good for 1 point. Those totals will be added to the voting portion — Stamford has 5 points, Ridgefield 3 and Norwalk 1 — and we will determine the winner.

The winning school in the Fan Showdown will receive $500 toward its athletic department, with $100 going to the second-place school.

So check out The Tiger’s Lair in action and be on the lookout for more videos in the days ahead.

    I am here as the actual original Tigers Lounge creator, not this Jack Brewster kid. Brewster should just focus on his baseball with his coach Todd, rather than impersonate the real founding father of the Tiger’s Lounge. Anyways, I am here to say that I am sorry for the immature actions that fellow lounge members took towards the Tigers Lair. The lair is the true fan section of RHS, and the lounge was formed for attention. I am here today to declare that the Lounge is now abolished…HAIL TO THE LAIR

    Just a reminder that the video can be viewed in 1080HD at 24fps. The handheld camera work is particularly strong choice and encapsulates the aggressiveness that these videos should be going for.

  3. LAIR says:

    The lounge is in no way, shape, or form associated with Ridgefield High School. It’s made up of three dudes who think it’s funny to rip on ridgefield athletics and make fun of their players and coaches. Nothing they say should even be granted with a response, as they are merely looking for attention. That is all.

    Sincerely,
    LAIR.

    I’m stranded so any amusement – even shaky – is appreciated.

  5. Fireman Ford says:

    Hail to the Lounge!

  6. Timmy Cozens and Joe Malley says:

    Dave,

    We (The Tigers Lair) created this video out of desperation. We are losing support because our Ridgefield Varsity basketball team is struggling. The Lounge is the real dedicated fan section in Ridgefield.

    Sincerely,
    Timmy Cozens and Joe Malley

  7. Sports Lover says:

    Easily the best one so far. Love the kid with no shirt on leading the charge for one chant. Very original. Great support in the fact that everyone was wearing white. They did a fantastic job. The “lair” wins in my book.

  8. Jack Brewster says:

    Sorry Dave,
    I am the creator of the Tiger’s Lounge. I thought that since the Lair overthrew the Tiger’s Den that I could attempt to do the same. Turns out i was wrong…. story of my life….
    Sincerely,
    Jack

    Didn’t think so. Didn’t think Ridgefield had turned into North and South Korea.

  10. fciac says:

    its not serious dave

  11. Dave Ruden says:

    Assuming this is not serious. Don’t tell me there is internal fighting at RHS.

  12. Big Tiger on Campus says:

    This video is ok, but, we are still waiting to receive the video from the BEST student section from Ridgefield. Sure, the “Lair” is a decent student section with fans who think they are the best and we get that, However, nothing matches the Tigers Lounge, the official student section of Ridgefield. Our video encompasses what a true fan section should and you will see that from our video entry in the coming days. DOWN WITH THE LAIR. #hail

  14. lair guy says:

  16. Zach says:

  17. Sanchez says:
