[QUOTE]Dudder started ragging on Perk and Rondo early in their careers because posters here could see they would be above average players. For some reason he hated for someone to say something good about them. I agree with one thing, a lot of times we go overboard when bragging on these guys. To already have Rondo in the HOF is simply ridiculous. Now Dudder can not change him mind on these guys because he would have to admit he is wrong and been wrong for 3 years. He is not going to do that. It doesn't matter if they win 4 championships in a row, RR wins the assist title, makes the all defensive team and 2nd team all pro, Dudder will simply not give Rondo his due. Of course he had Perkins flipping burgers right before his last million dollar contract. Man it hurts to be wrong so many times. I think he actually believe his nonsense now.

Dudder makes more sense than many of the posters at the other extreme IMHO. Not perfect sense... but more sense. Yes there is ego involved.
Rondo finally developing a serviceable jumper and hitting FTs at 70% changes everything... and Dudder will come around. The problem is that Rondo isn't likely to get to this skill level wearing green.
And so the divisiveness continues ad nauseum with silly azz threads like this one... and the HOF thread that I won't even open.
A year ago when I came onboard, anyone who criticized Rondo, no matter how litely, was demonized and vilified. The Celtic goons here went wild attacking Rondo critics... especially Dudder and to a lesser extent, myself.
The tide has changed since then... and more posters are speaking out now despite homophobic and homicidal threats.
Things have changed for the better... but the issue continues to be very, very bitter... on both sides.
I have to wonder how divisive this issue may be within the Celtic locker room, particularly after having the hated Lakers down 3 games to 2 in the finals.
Its there. It has to be.
