Why is it that in just about every post that is posted on this forum someone has something negative to say? Whether it be the decisions of the front office or the opinions of other posters. Yes I am not a fan of some of the decisions that the front office makes as far as personnel moves or their lack of, but I will support the team no matter what. Also it seems like every time someone on this board posts a reaction to signing of a player - J-Stew - D-Will there is a negative opinion on to why it doesn't make sense to sign said player cap wise. None of us have inside knowledge as to how the cap works and how it will change in the future. If you are a true Panther fan you should be happy to keep your drafted talent in house and not develop them, and then watch them flourish with another team. I trust Marty with his cap decisions, personnel decisions that is up for debate. The point that I am trying to make is let's make this forum a more positive place to come and talk about our team. If you don't like a decision that the front office makes back it up with facts on why it doesn't make sense. If you are going question a post in the forum let's here the facts to why you don't agree with a post, not just belittle a poster for the sake of doing it.

Because that's the nature of a fan, for better or worse. Hell, the word fan is derived from fanatical which implies a certain sort of crazy.

Because people have different opinions. That's what a message board is for. Expressing one another's opinions.

B/c that is a main function of this board. I mean who would come here to read the following:

Poster 1 - Steve Smith is awesome

Poster 2- Hell yeah

Poster 3 - I'm gonna disagree and go with super awesome

I mean being a fan is the ultimate escape from reality....you get to emotionally invest in something you have no control over. It is part of being a fan. What I don't get are those who complain about people who disagree with things. What type of fan just endorses everything 100%. That is a bore.

If we all agreed on everything, the board would die. Nothing to keep topics going.

I think the thing that bugs me most about this forum is the lack of maturity you constantly see exhibited - its like having to sit on the schoolbus with a bunch of pimply faced teenagers with bad manners - I wish zod would start a 40 yo plus only section

We can all agree to disagree, but do it respectfully and not bash someone for not agreeing with your opinion.

If the team had more than 4 winning seasons in 17 years I would be less apt to question the moves they make when they go against conventional and/or recently successful methods of roster building.

That's not how the internet works. It's easy to be big and bad when staring at a monitor.

what kind of fan pisses on everything 100%? that is just as much a bore.

btw...not saying that's you. you're just at 80%. :)
