Yes. Your contempt for me is obvious. I get it. You have plenty of company on the board---there's a whole host of posters here who repeatedly bash my posts and never ever say anything positive (you and I and practically everyone else know who they are). To me, one-sided vitriol is a form of harassment and a violation of the rules of the board. Then whenever I point that out, I get the old "you can't handle criticism" reply...which is a crock. Over the years, i have taken more sh*t and criticism than any poster on this board. Then I get statements like yours that "you think Peterson sucks" and "you hate BA&SK." I have never said either. Yes, I do not like PP's efforts in zones and tackling and punt returns...but I always have lauded him for his man cover skills and his philanthropy. I have never said he sucks. Yes, there are a number of things I don't like about BA's coaching style and his high risk offense...but i always recognize that he gave us three years of exciting football. I do not hate BA. Nor do I hate SK.
I am still posting here because I made a commitment to the posters on this board for whom I developed a mutual respect and appreciation. No one here agrees with everything i write, nor do I expect them to. I am an open book, I say whatever i feel (after considerable thought). But, in doing so, i always learn a lot from the healthy discussions we have on this board. Like they say...the truth is often somewhere in the middle---which is why healthy discussions and debates are so valuable.
I hope we can reach some sort of accord. The irony is, i bet if we ever had a couple of beers together, we'd be instant friends. In fact, if you are ever in the Boston area, beers are on me.
Maybe I do take this a little to serious it's all good
