    Did Danny Boy get banned? His opinion differs than ours so I'm just assuming...

    Not at all. Ian (who is the only person who can ban someone) encourages differences in opinons.

    But, of course, no one ever argues differing opinions on this website. Just 20,000 threads of plain vanilla agreements.

    Re: Don't Ya Cry Danny Boy!

    I like you shmessy, but if this is a thread intended to bait a certain poster by name, I wonder if it's the best thing to do.

    This place does get very acrimonious sometimes and I think some of that could be avoided.

    If I misunderstand, I apologize.

    No prob., Ray. Just saw the article on Patriots.com today and wondered immediately why some folks continually complain about the ownership.

    I can see your point (and, as a result, have softened the thread title), however, in this case, since Danny Boy has made it a long-term campaign of his, and has stated here that he has info on Kraft that no one else does (that he can't divulge) then Danny Boy doesn't mind being a principal in the debate. Let's face it, Danny Boy isn't just giving an opinion on Kraft, he is burlesquing it like a WWE Wrestler and yelling to all "I'll take all challengers".

    Kinda like an old former poster here (the guy you Mod for now, and whom I mostly enjoyed), whenever some positive articles were written about Charlie Weis.

    Plus, I kinda miss Danny and haven't seen him here for a while.

    Re: Don't Ya Cry Danny Boy!

    Like I said, I wouldn't mention it except I've always gotten along with you and thought it was a good point to bring up.

    Maybe one of those things that belongs within a thread, but could act as a match on a fire when started as a separate thread.

    Plus the poster you mentioned has problems beyond football which I really don't like to see discussed on a football forum any more than they have been already.

    I hoped you'd take it as intended, as friendly advice, not anything else.

    I still think the thread where we outed Alison and her other alter egos was the best and funniest thread I've been part of here.

    Thanks, Ray, you're probably right. I'll lock the thread.
