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.

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.

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%. :)

I feel like if you think the overwhelmingly negative thing is isolated to this board you need to look at other sites where people write their opinions more often. That's just the way the internet at large is...a large number of people bitching about something and a small number talking about something they like.

You know the sad truth of the matter? Negativity sells / breeds ratings / breeds news / whatever. We like it (we being people...not we being huddlers).

Want another reason? Fans who are invested in their team have some of the most deep seated violently defended opinions I have ever come across. I've seen relationships break up over Duke / UNC when I lived in that area....to think that a bunch of Panthers fans who don't know one another would go all Rodney King on the world when someone disagrees with their strong opinion? Setting yourself up for a disappointment there.

Sports talk radio and message boards are for negative nancies and TruCatzFan. Normal people with normal positivity basically enjoy life and stay off of these two conduits of venom.

I disagree w/ like 5 things. Those 5 just cause people in engage heavily. So those few things are all I really spend much time w/.

I mean Luke was fun to talk about when I wanted him drafted and 95% of the board crapped all over it. Now? Everyone loves him. Which is great. We are all excited about it......but talking with people more than one or two posts about how great Luke is, is pretty boring.

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

Amen! As an bonafide "old dude" ^^ I agree. Having a team for these two states is a blessing. Having said that complaining about our team is certainly a privilege but civility is cool too......remember we're not Eagle fans.

i know. i was just messing.

to a point i agree about everyone agreeing being boring but considering how crazy and rough many people's lives are, boring and positivity are nice escapes. it's good having someone like newton that everyone can be excited about. i wouldn't object at all to having more stuff like that to talk about. i get tired of whining and complaining about so many things...from myself and others. it's just exhausting. life's got enough crap in it all by itself without focusing on the crap in panther land. i try to keep my fandom as stress free for myself on non-gamedays as possible.

just as long as the old guys get their fiber everyday.

i think that the problem with a lot of the more negative posters. constipation.
