I grow less and less fond of this thread

 

as soon as it was bumped i wasn't a fan. i was just waiting for someone to remind vagrant that he did the same thing he was accusing others of...only he was much more ignorant when he did it himself.

 

probably should have locked it right away, tho.

 

oh well....

Vagrant    532

What it ultimately boils down to is two types of people. Those who are willing to wait and gather information, formulate opinions on what they know, and keep an open mind, and those who get themselves emotionally involved in causes they try to rah rah around.

 

In this case you were the latter, and it backfired because you tried to attack one of the former. I'd just admit you were wrong, bro. Quit being so prideful.

 

It's cool if you want to troll me, I get that it's easier that way. It makes it especially ironic that you'd consider ME the one that jumped to any kind of conclusion about anything in this thread considering I didn't even feel moved to comment the first time around. It's just that if you're going to be loud, at least be right. If you're loud and wrong, that's a bad combination. Perhaps when the poor attitude, loose cannon, career backup gets himself in the Pro Bowl discussion towards the end of the season you might be able to come to terms with the fact that you misjudged him if you're even capable of that level of introspective thought. There again, it's not really about what you think. I like to believe this is more of an exercise in teaching people in general that spouting off in ignorance about a player is generally frowned upon and something you will answer for in the event that your malformed opinions are proven unequivocally off the page.

pretty much a lesson you needed to learn and that you were guilty of yourself.

Lol "spouting off in ignorance."

 

We have already had multiple people comment that they don't feel genuine discussion based on actual, tangible, documented information is anything to critique.

 

Of course we have had people suggest that not liking a QB because "black quarterbacks never do well" is indeed the epitome of what it means to be ignorant.

 

oh wait I'm talking about you! what a coincidence!

I have developed a lot personally since that post was made and consider it even by my former standards to be out of character, but even more so now. The difference is my willingness to not defend that ignorance and to own it as such. The end of personal growth and the accumulation of knowledge is the point when you defend your actions vehemently even in the face of overwhelming logic to the contrary. We're getting a crash course in that behavior right here.

thanks, professor.

 

but don't bump up more old threads to try and teach someone a lesson because it could very well be that you did the same thing you're accusing someone else of. you pointed out a speck in someone's eye while you had a telephone pole sticking out yours.

 

not sure this thread can accomplish much more. locking it down.
