I have been lurking this site (BEST PATS SITE BAR-NONE) for the past 6 years or so and rarely post. I probably spend at least 3 hours (total) a day reading and wanted to chime in with some cheers & jeers and thoughts. Those of you I offend...it is purposely and no apologies will be offered. 1. THANK YOU IAN!!!! The work you do to keep this site running smoothly is greatly appreciated. 2. The wealth of truly intelligent Pats fans here is outstanding. Thank you (and I will inadvertently leave out many) Andy Johnson, Box, mgtech, Seymour, PATSNUTme, Willie 55, Miguel, PATRIOT 64, DaBruinz, Alk, Sarge, BrownFan80 (more on you later) and pretty much any female poster with some sort of Belichick in their sig (Patsdeb included too). These are just off the top of my head...many more deserve my thanks! 3. The sky is never falling for the Pats, but you would never know it from reading this site. It is amazing to me that so many Pats fans just don't get it. One 3 and out and our offense is in shambles or a missed field goal & the kicker must go. unreal! How many posters end up eating crow by season's end for some of the assinine posts early on in the season? 4. People I wish would be banned...in order of importance. NEM - KEEGS - Jacky Roberts - Mikey - Patriotspride - Digger (just barely made the list...but good job) 5. Special thanks to BrownFan80 for his recent relentless attempt to hold NEM accountable for his constant dribble. I reaalllly thank you!!!!! Every year it's the same thing with this guy. <sarcasm> NEM...do you know the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. <sarcasm>. No fly patterns...pass pass pass...inside slants...horrible play calling. Same posts every week. I don't know what medication the doc has you on since your last outburst (that unfortunately didnt get you banned) but here's to hoping your prescription runs out soon. 6. Keegs...moron does not begin to describe you. You are a waste of board space. Anyway...as you can probably infer...this post was more to whine about a select few than to offer any constructive opinions...which is why I mostly lurk. In a bad mood and had enough of the select few. I wish you all well (including the select few) and look forward to another successful Pats season.
