Discussion in 'PatsFans.com - Patriots Fan Forum' started by NEP4Life, Jan 17, 2012.
Most of the Broncos fans ran away.
Even if your team loses, please stay and contribute!
My plan is the following:
(1) Post reasonably.
(2) Cry, run away, and avoid all electronic communication for 8 months if the Ravens lose.
This forum sucks. I'm outta here on Sunday, win or lose.
Just kidding. I mean I personally enjoy hearing what other team's fans have to say the week before a big game. If we lose, I will probably read some of the threads but not post. On the bright side, I probably won't post again if we win either.
So you're gonna disappear like Ray Lewis' blood-stained white suit?
I can see why fans of other teams wouldn't necessarily stay, because this isn't their home board, after all.
However, we have some nice fans who post here from the Saints, the Steelers, the Chargers, and even the Jets.
There are some cool boards out there. I just usually do it to get a little deeper understanding of what to expect the next week. Some folks on here have got some good thoughts and it's always more interesting to watch the game with a little better understanding of what your opponent has been doing all year. Ideally I'd watch every single NFL game, but that isn't very practical so this is a nice way to learn.
But by no means should you take it as any kind of insult if folks don't stick around. I mean it is kind of tough to think about football right after your season ends, and of course a lot of the interest comes from looking forward to the next game.
Thanks for being cool though and not automatically assuming any fan of another team is a total troll.
A lot of people here are cool, and they'll give you the benefit of the doubt.
Others, however, will attack you mercilessly once you reveal you're a fan of another team.
I suppose the impression a fan of another team would get of this board would be greatly influenced by whomever he first encounters here.
I can't wait until this week is over. Even if the Patriots lost (very likely), you guys will be gone by 2 weeks from now at the very latest. I never really had any problems with most fans of the Jets, Steelers, Dolphins, Chargers, Giants, Colts, Bills...pretty much any team, actually. The absurd amount of trash talk and blind "WELL UR DEFENSE SUX CUPCAKE SCHEDULE 33-14 33-14 18-1 LOLOL" bull**** has completely redefined my view of Ravens fans. If a Patriots fan goes onto your boards and acts like you guys are acting here, please ban him/her promptly with no warning.
Yes, I'm mad.
Funny I feel the same way about your baltimoreravens.com board. Might be the worst collection of know nothings on a forum I have seen in my travels around the internet. I think it might be worse than finheavan and I never thought I would say that.
A few guys on there seem to know some stuff, but the overall majority are blowhards.
But you are free to leave anytime you want. And unlike you I have choosen not post on your board. And then ***** about the experience on the board.
Just curious did you play football at any level above Jr High?
Like any fan-forum you're gonna have the tards. And Baltimore has a few of them, I do admit.
But the type of tard were dealing with on this forum, is the ****y-tard. The worst kind, the kind who only looks to espn for their sports knowledge, then acts like they know everything about football because of watching espn. (this is not describing all of you)
Well i'd like to apologize for the behavior of many of my fellow Baltimore fans. If you ever come to Baltimore you'll be amazed at the tailgate scene and the hospitable fans, but you'll always run into those loose cannons every once in a while.
Funny, a Ray Lewis is a murderer joke. Never heard that before.
Shut up before I punch you in the mouth.
I'm still waiting on the "intelligent conversation" that I keep getting promised by everyone here.
I will say that your arrogance is something that EVERYONE says about PATS fans in general. I'm okay with you thinking we're a bunch of idiots. You haven't shown me any reason to give your opinions any credibility.
But despite my skeptic nature, I'll concede that the general consensus of Pats fans are that they are arrogant and know nothing about non-Patriot related football.
Just high school and rec league. I'm sure I know where you're going with this...more insults about my supposed "lack of knowledge" of football?
Unfortunately, another thing I've discovered around here is that disagreeing means you are an idiot.
BTW - my previous post does not apply to everyone I've came across here. There are some cool people here. If you're one of them, ignore my post.
I tried talking to you reasonably, but you go and say something dumb or insulting to the board. You get called on it and then whine about getting called out on.
Not to mention this is your first post in the forum since 2010.
Didn't exactly come with anything nice to say or even pretend to act as if you came here to discuss actual football.
And just for good measure you couldn't even talk smack without screwing it up. And then when called out on it your response is well I was talking about 2009. Great except that wasn't the last time you came to our house.
By talking/debating with you I went and broke a rule I try to adhear to: Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
I've been here 7 years and now have to add a 2nd person to my ignore function.
You must enjoy the difficult-to-navigate mess that is crows24by7. Purple on purple? Illegible.
That's givin' him both barrells.
There never was a white suit. just your imagination, witnesses. LOL
Personally, I and many others would have absolutley no problem with you and the other BAL fans if you simply acted respectful and backed up some of your weird preconceptions with actual facts.
The over and over again whining about our "lack of wins vs playoff teams" is totally irrelevant and you know that. It's a different week every game. We could just as easily point out that our losses were by 3, 4, and 8--to the defending AFC Champs at their house, in a last minute loss to a NFC Conference opponent, and an OT loss by a FG (to a lousy team in BUF, who was 5-1 at the time).
Oh, by the way---this yr's NYG team has a total of ONE victory vs a team with a winning record, and that was us, in a last second 24-20 victory...but you don't hear anyone bringing that up.
On the other hand, you guys have set a new bar on losing to crappy teams, but there's no reason for me to keep harping on that, b/c it's totally irrelevant. If BAL plays their "A" game on Sunday, they will win...that's a fact. Everything else is irrelevant.
Your horrible misconception about Brady getting roughing the passer calls just proved to be the icing on the cake, as I posted a link showing that he's actually the 30th ranked QB (behind anyone you can think of worth a damn)..
We have no problem with posters from other teams, just the ones who are annoyingly incorrect, and will not admit that.
As a Pats fan, I give your team props on many levels, and at least am willing to talk some respectful football with you.
They all leave...every time.
Except Pherein, but he's cool.
I don't mind dudes that come here to dish it out, as long as they can take some return fire in stride. Of course, intelligent discussion is better, but if you come to a football board to be intellectually stimulated, I'm not sure what to say. I come here for fun.
he may not have to.
