It has been proposed that fans who actually root for the Patriots start their own forum. I think this is a great idea. I know I don't spend all this time here because I'm some sort of "objective" football expert. I'm a Patriots fan only and would love to have a game thread where "we suck, we're awful" wasn't considered commentary. Apparently one poster has agreed to leave our game thread alone. If we kept the other whiners out, we could actually have only rooting and constructive criticism in the game thread. Since we'd be composed solely of fans who've followed the team more than two weeks, we might have some intelligent discussions too. What do you think "homers"? sounds like a winner to me!
