poo threads like this and the vomit responses to PU threads are far worse than than his threads. make another thread like this and i'll make sure its a long time before anyone has to worry about seeing your threads. seriously...just ignore them. don't open their threads if you don't want to read them. we aren't going to ban someone for having stupid opinions, but we will absolutely ban people for insulting others. the mods have been pretty lenient for a while in that regard, but that time is pretty much going away. treat others with respect or just ignore them. insulting other posters, regardless of how stupid you think they, their posts or their threads are is against the rules and will get you banned. understood? good.
and as much as i hate to do it, if i see people doing nothing but insult PU for threads he starts and offering nothing of substance, i'm going to start banning people. i don't care how annoyed any of you are with him. stop opening his threads. nobody is forcing any of you babies to open his threads. if you don't want to read them, stop opening them.
stop opening his threads. no one is forcing you to do it. the fact that he bothers you so much even after blocking him is your problem and only you choosing to ignore him is going to fix it. just be a big boy and move on.
i have hated that role and wanted us to get over it for so long. you know who the underdog is? a team that nobody expects to win. you know why they aren't expected to win? because they don't. it's fine for one, maybe two years, but to be perennial underdogs means all you do is lose and achiev really nothing and all you have is hopes that maybe...someday...you'll be a winner, but then you won't be an underdog anymore. teams with a reputation for winning can't considered an underdog.
"but..but we never do well when people expect a lot from us!" we need to get over that poo as well.
climb on top of that hill and claim your place as the best and dare everyone to come and take you off of it. have some balls instead of being some passive wuss franchise afraid of succeeding because they can't handle the pressure.
hochuli's crew made no mistakes in that game. i'll say it again, they made no mistakes. they set out to do the very thing they did...level the playing field, taking away the home advantage by calling the game in favor of the away team. this is something that hochuli's crew has done for years. i mentioned this and provided a link from a couple years back that showed it in one of the threads talking about the bad officiating. his crew not only has been one of the most flag happy crews in the league, but is consistently among the very worse in regards to flags being heavily in favor of the away team. hochuli is a lawyer with the power of a judge on the playing field. this is what you get. a ref who feels his job is to make the playing field level between home and away teams. it might be just me, but that's not the refs job. call the game. don't try to manage the game. this is why more challenges need to be made available and every play should be challengeable. some would say that takes away from the game, but officiating like we just witnessed takes away more from it.
