How do the Defections affect your old feelings watching the videos ?

  1. No effect - As good as ever. The thrill feels like it just happened.

  3. Big effect. I don't watch the videos much and the feeling is mostly gone.

    Now that so may of the guys like Vinatraitor, Branch, Givens, McGinest have taken the money and run, how does it affect your feelings watching 3GtG I, II, III, etc ?

    I'm in the Big Effect category myself I'm afraid. I haven't watched those videos in a long time, I'm going to have to pull out out. But when I see Vinatraitor highlights now, it's more of a shrug than anything else.

    That's the weirdest poll I've ever seen BFan.

    I usually watch videos to see the girls butt dancing. Didn't see that category.:D

    I don't know. I guess since some of the departures were in bad blood it does change my feelings towards the videos. But the videos will always bring me back. My vote was for 'some change'.

    Absolutely not. I have enough perspective to realize that if I were a professional athlete, I would be trying to get as much in my ten years professionally as possible.

    It is possible to watch the old videos and games, appreciate and respect those players for what they did, and also have no hard feelings because they left for money elsewhere.

    This kind of stuff happens with normal people all the time, whether it be close school-mates who go on to other things, or friends/neighbors moving away to pursue a better job opportunity, or co-workers changing companies for a raise or a promotion.

    I'm not sure what makes this year so different for some people.

    Haven't we already experienced this with Bledsoe, Woody, Milloy, and Law? I still thoroughly enjoy watching the 2001 DVD, and watching those guys play well.

    McGinest, Vinatieri, Givens, and Branch are pretty much the same situation, as far as I'm concerned.

    The only difference is the DVD's look more dated now, since most of the current team is turned over with new guys.

    I like this pole. I think we all have the pleasure from time to time of popping in an old DVD and giggling about the ups and downs of the current dynasty.

    And, yeah, the DVD loses a little bit of 'current interest' when most of the players are no longer on the team.

    I can appreciate what they did for us, from Boom-Boom Coleman to Marc Edwards to Compton to Andruzzi to Wiggins to Pleasant to whoever.

    But the fact that they were Patriots for such a brief time, and some of them wouldn't sacrifice anything at all to stay with their team and teammates and fans does diminish the effect a little in my mind.

    It's just hard to root for somebody who is a Colt or Lion or whatever.

    Appreciate what they did, not really interested in what many of them are up to today on a different roster. Only dislike two of them. One from just today. ;)
