In response to Pats-bilbo's comment:
The issue is that along with differencing opinions, people make it personal. Everyone can Han an opinion and I can decide to agree with them or not. I can state my opinion just like everyone else. What I hate is how the opinions turn into an attack on the person, instead of the topic.
ignore some of this when it is aimed at you, just don't react the people doing it look more stupid and pathetic and they will go away.
both sides or teams do this, some go to this after one counter point and others wait a little but once it starts I stop reading the thread. This one is in the same place. But I had to say this and try. It will fall on deaf ears but it would be nice to just discuss stuff instead of all the drama.
--- " I am a happy fan, a proud fan and I want us to win every game 28-0 but as long as we win, the team is united and has a sense of respect to the community and the game I will be a patriots fan and damn proud of it." ---- signed a pats fan from middle earth
Easier said than done, because to do so would mean that you can't have an opinion that differs from rusty. That's the problem. I come on here to talk a little football, get some of the latest news and express an honest opinion. When I do that I am met with hostility.
Take your post for instance, let's say you wrote something football related in there - and rusty didn't agree with it - he would call you stupid, he would insult your opinion, he would tell lies about you, he would mention you in other posts to try to get people to go along with him and then he would never EVER stop. Ever. Anytime you wanted to state an opinion you would have to consider that before you did. As for me I am going to state my opinion and I'm not going to let someone lie about me in the process. He would also read your post and notice that there were a few typing and spelling errors in there and claim that you "never went to college"...doesn't matter if this is just a message board, talking football...he'd insult your intelligence.
It's one guy. It's the same guy that everyone was talking about last summer...and the summer before...and before...and before...and before that. It will never end.
Who are you kidding here? Who do you think you are acting all innocent? I am the lone guy who takes on trolls. If others pitched in, you wouldn't exist here. You act like your little group aligned with Bustchise, immersed in your shared ant-BB agendas, aren't the main reason for why the board is like this.
IT IS YOU. YOU.
Trust me. I can guarantee you many people agree with me. Your little group is just overly busy and vocal banding together, but you make up a very small part of this board.
Your passive-aggressive behavior is infamous here, as you banded together with Bustchise and your BBW Guild to spend every waking hour here creepily bashing the greatest coach and GM in the history of football because you can't get yourself to admit the following:
1. Tom Brady has been missing in AFC Title games for years and years. Without a quality QB, no team wins a SB.
2. The lockout, in conjunction with BB needing to pay FOUR KEY PLAYERS TOP MARKET PLAYERS (Brady, Mankins, Wilfork and Mayo), meant a slow build from within by acquiring picks and rebuilding on the fly vs trading these players away and starting over, as the plan.
YOu pathetically wanted what the Jets did and admitted it! LOL
The fact you don't know either one of these things or didn't want to hear it, means you are Spaulding Smales who wants a cheeseburger, a hot dog, a pepsi, etc. That is who you are. You;re Speaulding Smales picking his nose and puuking into Audis at country clubs and acting like a tool after he hits a joint thinking he's cool. That's you.
Spaulding Smales. How does that feel to look that here?
You're so spoiled it's ridiculous and I am embarrassed we have fans like you running around the internet acting like because Brady trots out there, it means it's a formality that we will play in the SB. In reality, he has been a MAJOR reason why we haven't won one or gotten back there. WHen we don't get to a SB, you come running blaming everyone and never mention how bad Brady was in his own right.
MAJOR REASON. But, you can't admit it.
Hence, your inability to be rational and at least admit that, instead of mocking BB in here with your buddy Bustchise and all others like Pezzy. TFB12, Babe, TCal, etc. That means YOU all have the problem, not the rest of the board who can easily say "Brady must improve because BB has built a juggernaut now"...
You're delusional. You think BB should miraculously pull off a SB win while Brady is playing like crap at times when every real diehard knows that is pretty much impossible. It's almost like you want BB to work a miracle as Brady trots off with Welkie to Costa Rica, after each sucks. How does that make sense?
And, your little TFB12 bandwagon buddy who never knew what it was like to sit on those metal bleachers and watch a crappy product, comes in here to align with you because that choker Welkie is someone he wants to bed. Super.
Guess what? SOme of us are adults and know the score. We get that Welker was not worth 10 mil per and deserved nothing that high after uner-performing with his stat padding buddy, Brady. So, BB thankfully split that up with that moron running around here for over a year whining, as we watch Edelman (as -predicted) show the world why BB was right.
Here we are in 2014 with a loaded, young team because BB built it right and now Brady has to finally step up and help. Yes. Yes, he does.
Because if he doesn't, your little group of pathetic Brady infatuation robots will look more ridiculous than you do now scrolling through your Brady Excuse Rolodex. You passed the letter "Z" a long time ago, Cupcake.
Leave the woods of NH for 5 minutes other than to buy tv dinners for yourself and get some flippin' culture, you white trash, uneducated, arrogant rube. Or, just leave the board.
95% of fanbases are jealous to the moon and back of what we have every year, which is to say: 'The Pats will play in the title game'...
No other fanbase can really say that and it's not just because of Brady either. It's really because of BB, the greatest coach of all time. Yet, you have spent over 5 years here mocking him because Brady's ego was so big before SB 42 and he choked in SB 46 trying to make up for SB 42. Again, SUPER. Everyone else knows this, but you.
You best hope Brady doesn't crap himself in the title game this year whether it is in Denver or at home. Even he knows how ridiculous it has become where that game starts and ends, and it was like he never even dressed for it.
That's how you know how bad he plays. Or, at least, the rest of us do.
Now keeping in mind that all this^^^is typical dribble of a madman, and it demonstrates what the original post and this thread is all about. There is one guy around here (rusty) who's soul purpose is to ruin the experience of posters around here, he thinks it's his job to eliminate meaningful conversation. Anything even remotely close to honest opinion - if negative - is not to be spoken. Why? I do know. Personally I think that is a reason to talk sports in general...to be more rounded and intelligent...not talk like some pink hat mindless fan.
All the people rusty mentions in his rant, the people that "ruin this place" have very very few problems/arguments with other posters on this site. I know I don't. Yet if you look at rusty he has argued and insulted virtually every single poster on here - even people he used to think were his comrades now have him on ignore. Think about that.
I think rusty's way of doing things eliminates quality football talk. You don't see anymore outside of the box type of posts anymore around here...you don't see the hypothetical type threads anymore...why? Because the guy ruined them. He takes them as insults to Belichick and feels it's his job to destroy any type of interesting thought. Instead we are left with 5-7 threads a day about the shortcomings and problems of other players or other teams. There is no more...what if we traded so and so? What if we moved this guy over there? Did you hear that so and so may surpass so and so as a starter? Or, why is that guy still on the roster? And why did that guy get cut, I thought he looked better than the other guy?
^^There is no more of that stuff, that stuff is insulting to Belichick evidently and therefore must be stopped in the eyes of rusty. Why didn't we trade for so and so? Because Belichick is smarter than you troll. Why didn't we sign this guy or that guy? You are spoiled, do you think we can sign every pro bowler? Why isn't so and so starting? I think you should leave the coaching up to the man who is in charge. Why did we trade down in the draft when we could of selected so and so? Because you are a pink hat troll fan, that's why and because you didn't go to college.
And it's gotten to the point where you can't even start threads about players you like because he thinks it was him that drafted them and him who "jumped on their bandwagon first". I have started threads on Jaime Collins and White - speaking of how much I thought they could help this team - two seconds later rusty runs in talking about Belichick, trolls and salary cap hell. It's beyond ridiculous.
