[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Hi guys : Dave, The surprising thing is that your information says you have been on this site for a long time. So have I. 3-4 years. People back then asked me the same question you did and I have told them. The fact is, because I root for another team, I get asked many questions by many people. More than most, I imagine. I can't respond to all of them. But for you I will provide my reason. I believe it is a stale existence to continually agree with others. If I am participating on a Colts website where everyone is pro colts then that just seems boring. I happen to think that the colts pats rivalry is the best non-division rivalry in the NFL and they are two of the best teams this decade. Plenty of storylines. Further, now that I have been here as long as I have, I know the posters and their personalities. Why would I want to give that up? Finally, believe it or not, threads that I engage in end up usually being some of the most popular threads on the entire board. Like it or not, people are interested in what I have to say. I am not trying to be arrogant. I am just being accurate. This is a free site. It is not a membership based site. I have every right to be here.

Wow! Are you serious??!!
I seriously doubt anyone here has a problem with you because you root for the Colts or have a different opinion. The issue that people have with you is that you are a troll.
No, not all of your posts are troll material. But plenty are. You routinely come here and bait people by saying outrageous things. And when you are called out, instead of just admitting that you were wrong you stand your ground and incite even more outrage.
Which leads me to my next point. Your assertion that people are interested in what you have to say: Which I guess they are- to a point. But not the way you think. I'm trying to say this without it sounding like an insult. But you bring nothing of value to this board. Nobody here is interested in what you have to say or wants to hear from you. Some people just can't resist taking the bait and having these ridiculous pointless arguments with you.
Let me put this into perspective for you. I could go to the Colts website a couple of days after they lose the Superbowl to the Saints and start a thread along the lines of "Payton Chokes Again" and ramble on about how Manning is the most overrated QB in the NFL and the Colts were lucky to even make the playoffs, etc.
People would reply. It would be a "popular" post. Because people are going to defend logic and reason when it is attacked. That's human nature. The thread would drag on until I stopped defending my position or the mods locked and deleted it. That's the thing, the mods have given you a tremendous amount of leeway in posting your rants here. You are not the victim in this situation.
I bet I could get 300-400 posts on a topic like that in a Colts forum. That doesn't mean it's intelligent. worthwhile or brings anything of value to the site. And that's what you do. You just spew nonsense. Like your insanely warped views on Spygate and anything that has anything to do with your Colts' imagined greatness.
I hate to tell you this, but people here are NOT interested in what you have to say. As a matter of fact, with the exception of a few that just love to argue with trolls in general, we are all sick to death of you. The cheap shots, instigation and logic pretzels. I think you have definitely overstayed your welcome. And wether or not you realize this, you DON'T belong here. I'm all for fans of other teams coming here. But as a fan of another team, there are certain guidelines you are expected to follow.Think of it as being a guest in someone else's home. You simply refuse to use any decorum while visiting our site. And when people act angry or attack you, you are the victim. It's an act that is getting really old. I think we are all getting sick of it and just wish you would leave. You obviously can't behave in a reasonable manner. Maybe you should just go.
But I think I'm wasting my breath. I think you honestly believe that your behavior here is reasonable and justified and that we are all just ganging up on you. I don't think reality is ever going to sink in with you.
Just thought I'd try anyway.
