    After reading many, many posts over the past couple of weeks, I find it necessary to try to get some consensus among our members who are PATRIOTS FANS.

    First of all, what is with those who keep B&M'ing about our "Image"? Image....who the hell cares about image? Not me! There are some who feel we should be MORE courteous to opposing fans who join OUR board. Well, I know we give one another a hard time and argue amongst ourselves everyday. I say we at BEST treat opposing guests the same courtesy.

    Image is & means nothing. It is not real and it is phony. Haven't you ever met those people in your life or at your job who always seem to worry about their image?....biggest phonies I've ever met!

    I visit many, many NFL team fan boards and EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM treat opposing fans with skepticism and less tolerance than their fellow members. Why should we be any different?

    Having said that, I do like having opposing fan join us as guests here. I like the clash and the turmiol that results. But lets stop this "Oh leave them alone", "don't hurt our image" boohoo crap.

    Your feelings?

    As an after thought, I do believe the behavior and image of our fans who attend Patriots games at Gillette is important because those fans affect the image of the team and the enjoyment of those attending the games.

    When we are at Gillette, we are guests of the Patriots and need to act accordingly.

    Wow! What team a you a fan of? You surely don't mind embaressing yourself or looking foolish, huh? ;)

    Moderators, please delete this guys quote of an article that was a joke. He's posting it here as if it was meant to be taken seriously...and it was not. It was purely a parody.

    There is no such thing as The Center for Sports Research. Your quote is from Sports Pickle, a sports humor & satire site...heres the link;

    I just did. That was trolling and he's being warned right now. One more chance for him. He steps over that line again and he'll be be dealt with more harshly.

    You are nothing but a troll and flame-baiter! The Mods need to get rid of these self-absorbed Colt Trolls.

    It was funny...but this troll is a sad excuse. Notice he didn't even have the courage to say what team he roots for! Like a coward who hides in the bushes to insult someone so he won't get beaten!:eek:

    I don't care about my image -- what others think of me -- but I care about my behavior. You should too. Showing courtesy and empathy for others is a good thing whether or not others notice or recognize your good behavior. Go for it!

    Limit the opposing team's visitors to the visiting locker room. The Colt trolling is starting to get out of hand.

    And speaking your mind takes courage too.

    My ONLY point is, stop complaining about our image!

    You're right and I agree with you regarding doing the right thing for the right reason. But these fans deserve no more tolerance than we give one another...thats all;)

    OR, how about a probation period for new members? Restricting posting rights for a period of time would quiet the game time joiners and minimize the opportunity to rejoin with a new id. FWIW, no trolls are worse than Pats fans who frequent other teams' boards. I read a lot of these to see what other teams' fans are thinking and am embarrassed to read posts by so-called-Pats-fans. I think one needs to be especially courteous when visiting another teams' forums.

    ARe you kidding me? It would have been one thing if you countered my post with your honest opinion. but you falsely posted a parody as if it was a serious article that insulted New England fans.

    It was deleted and you had the balls to re-post it?

    This thread is not intended to rid our board of opposing fans. As a matter of fact, I said I like having them here. But let's not offer them any more tolerance that we offer each other.

    You're a guest here my friend. Just like i am when I go to ColtFreaks. You don't even belong on this thread since it was directed toward my fellow Patsfans. The fact you read it and decided to comment on it tells me you purposefully wanted to troll this thread.

    So you've studied fans all around the country and have facts to back up your claim that Patsfans are the rudest...you're another name for a donkey!

    So I believe you should be banned for all of the above!

    Just remember, no one can be embaressed by someone elses deeds. So if someone makes a fool out of themselves, you can not feel embaressed by it. It may be some other issue you may have, but it's just not possible to be embaressed by the actions of someone else.

    i.e. a man dressed as a woman walks into a bar room and he forgot to shave. Some people may feel embaressed, but it's not because of what that man did.

    I only have time for this message board. Why should I visit another team's board to read their non-factual demented views?

    If people treat this forum like garbage, they shouldn't be here.

    Are you just acting stupid, or is that naturally you? I stated in my opening, this is not to have anyone banned. Stop discussing that NOW! I"m just discussing our image with Patriots fans ONLY!

    Listen closely AH...I've been banned from other boards for doing far less than what you have already done. If you really do visit other teams boards, then you KNOW FOR A FACT this board is one of the most difficult to be banned from.

    I suggest you go to the Chargers site and tell them they are the rudest fans you've ever seen...you'll be banned in a second! Go ahead and get back to us.

    Once again, this thread is specifically asking for the opinions of Patriots fans. So be gone and post your opinions on another thread...or even start your own thread for Non-Patriots fans!
