Cosmos, my dude! Nothing is up really. Don't let my school teacher tone fool you into thinking that I don't respect where you're coming from. I really do. I've stated as much before and I meant it. I appreciate what you bring to this forum, for the most part. In fact, I've always thought of having some kind of end of year awards for these forums, with posters like yourself, SupaMario, Albiceleste2010, and many others in mind. You all bring valuable contributions in different ways. And while I may criticize and oppose some of your posts, I really do try to make it about your posts, NOT THE POSTER. Obviously, I've had varying levels of success at that. I am well aware of my nagging habit of correcting people whenever I think they're wrong. Just be glad you don't have to live with me every day like my wife does . Thank God I make up for this by being an otherwise exceedingly nice guy (and a bit narcissistic too apparently ) I will say this again though. When at the stadium, expressing how you feel about the team and how they're doing and so forth, passion is a great thing. I admire people being passionate about things they love, much like I am passionate about some things. When it comes to analyzing what's wrong with the team and putting proposals out there on potential solutions, unbridled passion becomes a liability. I'll respect your stance on not separating your passion from your thinking, but to me that presents a bit of a paradox. Passion in many ways stands in opposition to rational thought. Thereby, if I come to the conclusion that some of the things are irrational, I don't see that as being unfair. So when you are deliberating on this team and presenting certain things as facts (when they may not be), or ignoring actual facts altogether, I gotta tell you that it will bother me. And if I lash out a bit, it's never personal. I do think of you as a good guy. After all, who else would invite me to come down to watch a game with him sometimes and get me to feel to you're completely genuine about it?
