    There's that circular logic making another lap.  So then why have you wasted your time being a fan of something for 46 years that has no effect on your life?

    More importantly, why are you on a forum set up to discuss that interest if you're admitting in the same post that 1) the Pats have no effect on your life and 2) you're only concerned with talking about things that effect real people's lives?

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Does "critiquing" the Patriots by fans serve a necessary purpose in our lives? : That is generally what a bully would say or do: toss out any counter by the opponent as "invalid". I can think up plenty of response to you, beleive me.

    Wait so you call my statement "invalid" by saying I'm a liar then you say that's what bullies would say or do? Does that make you a bully or does calling my statement invalid mean something completely different then your above statement?

    no, of course it doesnt...i dont think anyone here believes it does either...its just football talk and this is a good place to express opinions. im sure you would enjoy it more if you werent so snide and sarcastic all the time...i dont see a point of posting here unless you are here to enjoy talking about football and other sports

    Yes this is a tactic you generally use such as calling me a liar is a form of insult.

    Since I have not tossed any insults your way I would say for the most part we've been arguing our own sides. That's called a debate. Not all debates end in agreement and no they don't always lead to insults either. Arguments can actually end in different forms then what you expressed above. Arguments can actually end with nether side seeing the other as "valid" or without resorting to insults.

    I await your reply to my previous post.  I'll throw my $0.02 here on this point though.  You use the term argue but I prefer the term debate.  I don't argue.  When you debate, it's not about discrediting the other person.  At least it's not supposed to be.  It's about providing a counterpoint that is hopefully more persuasive than the other person's.   Insulting someone in and of itself is not a tool in a debate.

    its something to do, well if it means nothing than just answer this question for me...why do you have an account on here and post as much as anyone if it means nothing?

    Well I wouldn't say that Mike. Insulting the other person during a debate can be used as a sign that the person who resorted to using the tool of insults has infact lost the debate since they can't win the debate with their own merits so they resort to discrediting their opponent

    Look at the draft forums there are plenty to choose from

    Z and I have had plenty of debates to involving the running game and the effect of a balance attack and yet I don't remember either of us insulting each other either

    Haha, that is true.  Most of the time, when someone resorts to insults, that's when you know it's game over.

    that didnt answer the question, but anyways...everyone thinks they are an expert and thats what makes the arguments funny and good to see in my opinion...but if you brought this up to any site about their forums, they would laugh at you
