In response to jerrycole's comment:
Karliost, there is a world of difference between disagreeing with someone's opinion and calling him/her a hater. As it has evolved in sports discussions, the word "hater" is used to describe someone who has an irrational or over-the-top dislike of a sports figure. Some of those who post here have criticisms of, for instance. Rondo - but by no means are they haters. As Celtics fans, they truly want Rondo to overcome the flaws they see in him and will root for him to do that as long as he is a Celtic.
Others, however, deserve that label "hater" because of the intensity of their dislike, their complete inability to see any positive aspect of the object of their dislike, their desire to get rid of that person without regard for what is offered in return, their need to concoct psychological diagnoses to support their opinions, etc.
It is my observation that, generally, those on this forum who hold favorable opinions of Rondo have not been the ones attacking other posters. (Note that I said "generally".) Those who are haters are the attackers, generally, and they attack unprovoked by anything other than another poster's disagreeing with them.
Let me suggest an experiment: make two lists of posters here: one of the Rondo supporters and the other of those who want to get rid of him. Now identify the ones who, generally, are quick to attack those who merely disagree with them, to call names, to resort to ridicule, etc. My bet is that there will a much higher percentage of such posters on the second list than on the first.
Jerry, instead of wasting time with your "Who done it" posts, why dont you cut to the chase and provide us your list of HATERS??? Doesnt that make a lot more sense and wouldnt it save many of us further brain damage from following your diatribe?
Also, are you suggesting that a certain "intensity" of dislike equates to hating? Wouldnt that just contradict the word dislike...sorta like.... I dislike you so much its actually hate but Im sticking with disliking you a whole bunch instead..
Also, I dont know anyone on this forum who doesnt recognize any positive aspect of Rondos game. None.. Many have issues with Rondo and his perceived greatness but certainly never dismissing every aspect of his game. I think youre really grasping for straws here trying to make a point.
The remained of your post regarding the HATERS are the ones on the attack of anyone in disagreement with them is ridiculous. The norm is people criticizing Rondo are generally attacked, usually with the word HATER just as you have done.
