In response to TripleOG's comment:
I think back in 08' the board was reset for many and their handles show that year as their 1st post. In my case Ive been posting since around 05' or 06' when Texpats, Mighty, MVPkilla, and AP were all regular contributors and texpat was normal. After 2007 and a few postseason losses some have stopped drinking the kool aid but they arent trolls, just frustrated fans and were likely run off by "____Y" but things were much better back then so I feel what TFB is saying. I think a lot still frequent to read but just dont wanna post and get attacked by the resident Patriots police.
This is a typical enounter if you new. Both sides.
