Ring talk is just what results when a team with former glory is getting paved over by a team on it's current path to glory. The inferiority complex that sets in causes the individual to grasp at whatever they can to tell themselves that their team is good too. It's like getting participation ribbons in childrens' athletic events. The current Spur fan has the "Ring" ribbon and the "Refs" ribbon, and they display them audaciously at every opportunity.
