    congrats TFB. 

    I'm not into post counting but I do think there is something to be said for consistency and being around for years so folks get to know you. 

    Thanks for doing your part. :) 




    Thanks Spanker!  It's nice to have long time posters on here.  You have been here a while too, stick around and keep making this place fun..  It didn't hit me unitl last night that I was close to 10k, almost passed me by!

    Hey TFB, like I've posted here before, I don't have much time to post on here with my job but I do check here every couple days to stay tuned into the Pats. I have been on here a few years now and have always enjoyed your contributions. 

    Keep on keepin on.




    Oh, thanks man.  Wish you could find more time to come on here.  Would love to read your thoughts about the Pats this season.

    Tough to find a better South park character than Towelie well excpet maybe Craig.

     

     

     



    You do realize you're enabling Phat Rex/Bustchise/Bugalow Bill, etc, correct? That's him.  This is his 5th split personality board name he's introduced as far as open board names the mods allow him to use.

     

     

    Bugalow Bill and Bustchise he uses interchangeably, but this is his new subtle Pats poseur board name he tries to use to make it seem like it's a different person.

    Craig is better than Towelie.  And Tokie the Bong from Conan is better than Towelie anyway.

    Russ the Towelie vs. Tokie the Bong is a debate for another thread.

    TFB, since you asked.....

    If anything, folks do not seem to accept that there can be varying opinions which are not intended to be personal, but, when posted, are attacked with name calling and such.  How often have we seen "football" threads breakdown into name calling etc between a couple posters drowning out all the rest of the stuff?  Of course, you do have the "troll" types who have nothing but the intent to denounce and denigrate the Pats and their fan base.

    Secondly, be a "fan" of the team and don't make it about the players and coaches not knowing what they are doing when they lose a game or do not win the SB.  Since 2007, this has been a spoiled lot.  As a fan, I never profess to know more about how the team could be run or play.  I may not like what they tried or whatever, but, they are trying! Unlike one poster here, who will go nameless, who seems intent on blaming all the troubles for the Pats not winning the SB since 2005 on ONE player, huh?

    It is laughable some of the comments made here about personnel, plays and such as if the poster should be the coach or owner and knows better about how the team should be run than the team itself.  But, hey, isn't that what fans are about?

    Of course I don't have a chance of ever reaching 10K posts....just not enough time in the day I guess. Maybe I'm a fool for actually doing work while at work??Laughing

    This forum has it's ups & downs, and it's usually good for a few daily laughs. I seriously get better info here than any media outlet. But of course lately, the arguing & pissing contests on every other thread is wearing thin. I have more people on ignore than ever before....

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts.  I remember when I first joined in 08 most everyone got along on here.  No major trolls but there were a couple fans of other teams here which isn't a bad thing.  Most of them add to the fun and never really go over the top.  I hate to single one person out but I think one person here really drags the forum down.  I think without him here it would be full of fun and good times.  These threads cluttered with name calling and fighting really takes away from the fun.

    Well said AGCSBill.    Unfortunately, I've had to gloss over many potentially good threads that degenerate into slug it out, name calling garbage that I refuse to waste my time reading anymore.   

     

    As far as annoying fans of other teams go it's very easy.  I simply have them on ignore.  But it becomes more difficult when very knowledgeable Patriot Fans continuously insult other very knowledgeable Patriot Fans. 

     

    For example, I am a Tom Brady Fan and I am a Bill Belechick Fan.  There is no way I am going to be forced to choose between them.  Yet we have the same argument ad nauseum over who is responsible for the teams success and failures. 

     

    If people feel that the only way to win an argument is by yelling louder and insulting more well it might work in the beginning.  But after time, many readers get tired of this and just tune you out and your strategy fails.  OTOH, whoever takes the high road from this point and quits the insults is probably going to be more respected and taken much more seriously. 

     

    I know what I said is probably going to fall on deaf ears.  But I'm going to use a "stretch" analogy here.   I despise the Yankees.  But as hated as A-Rod is, I wonder how many people actually felt a little sorry for him after Dempster hit him the other night.   At that time, the Yankees were a mess and losing the game.  What followed was A-Rod hits a home run off Dempster, the Yankees get motivated and win that game and win three games in a row. 

     

    Perhaps personal attacks are sometimes better left undone.

    I agree with your view. I admit over the many years I've been here. I've let my passion for the team get to me, and have fell victim to getting into silly exchanges with certain posters. Lately, I have decided that arguing with some jerk on the internet is such a waste of time, so I just put all the people who contribute nothing on ignore. I find it 10 times more enjoyable not having to see the BS from the select few.....although the list has grown lately ;-)
