Confessions of a Troll
Brownsfan80 started a thread asking trolls feedback:
He wrote....Patsummerall80 spent the better part of two weeks trying to convince everyone he was a patsfan only to admit now he's a Steelers fan. What's the point? Don't you have better things to do with your time?
His post is worthwhile. Since the concensus here is that I am a troll, I will share my thoughts with you guys. You must consider that when people post, much gets communicated innacurately or often taken out of context on these Boards.
Let's take Brownsfan80 for example. he said I "spent the better part of two weeks trying to convince everyone he is a pastsfan only to admit now he is a Steelers fan. The true fact is and it's time stamped for all to see, two weeks is quite a stretch. It was exactly two nights last week and one night last night. So the exaggeration needs to be corrected. To you that may not matter as the point is I pretended to be a PATS fan. Once again I will apologize for trying to just have fun. Most trolls are extremely mean spirited and resort to blatant name calling as their M.O. is to insult the Board. I figured it was a dead giveaway because I asked PATS fans after a lengthy winning streak why they were giving up? Obviously it's a joke. My claims to be a PATS fan just extended the joke.
I never once said the PATS suck, stink or insulted them as a team. Most trolls operate that way. In fact I think I wrote about the upcoming game against the Jets and commented that the Jets can be "great." How ridiculous is that? Another clue to this is a joke.
As far as better things to do with my time......absolutely I do. Again, it was only three different days here and there. I am on vacation until the end of the year so nothing abnormal about that.
Somebody else posted why do Steelers, Indy, Denver and Jets fans come on this Board to troll? C'mon, you don't think PATS fans have and do troll? Of course you do (no one here specifically, but your fans are out there as well). Go to one of the PIT Boards and you will find Bradymagic acting like a true A hole. My posts were tame in comparison. Ever see a KC Board and all the jerk Denver fans that troll there? Again, every board has them (well maybe not Detroit), there is nothing to troll about. Besides their fans are trolling their GM and owner (and not behind a keyboard either).
So now that I had my five minutes of fame on this Board, again I apologize to those I offended. To those who got it, I appreciate the kind posts or private messages. You guys have a great thing going here in New England with your team and the passion shows. I too take pride with my Steelers as they are one of the better teams in the NFL and rich on tradition.
I hope the New Year brings you all peace, health, and happiness.
PS...I promise this will be the last thread that I start since it is your Board.
Immediately following football, it's an all new 60 Minutes, followed by Angela Lansbury in Murder...........She Wrote, and then a very special Kate & Allie, followed by the a CBS Sunday Night World movie premiere. Michael Keaton and Teri Garr star in the hilarious Mr. Mom. This is immediately following your local news where it will be seen in it's entirety. Except on the West Coast.
