What dose FTW stand for???

OK frist off you might say this is off topic, but I think we should talk about this so here goes...

Back in the day, yes before the public had access to the internet. 1981-83 if some kid had a shirt on that had the words FTW in big letters on it, it was common knowledge that it stood for **** The World.

So now I am being told that it stands for: For The Win. When and who decided that they where going to change the definition of FTW? I didn't vote on it. Mabe it's just my old punkrock attitude, but I think this is all a ruse.

Patrick,

It means both "**** The World" and "For The Win". Sometimes I have seen the latter typed as 4TW to be more specific.

See link:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...lang_phrases#F

So while I can't hit the broad side of a barn with a paintball, I do know a little about the intarweb and the lovely dorkers who populate it.

w00t!

My guess is that Hollywood Squares popularized the phrase and eventually it just became an acronym.

Most paintballers under the age of 18 have their parents pay for them. If you are one of the few and proud players that pay for yourself put this in your sig.

Make MWAG FTW t-shirts but make people give you the F the World definition before you agree to sell to them.
