I understand that context is all important; however, I was just commenting on what I saw and how it made me feel.

It's called an "opinion". I thought this was the place to voice those.

I understand JH's sentiment. I remember reading in the paper a few losses back that after the game (forget which) the mood in the locker room was "jovial", with the players in a good mood, singing and carrying on. As a fan, I'm certainly never "jovial" after a loss.

SMILING!!

They are getting beaten 21-6 and these guys have a smile on their face! WTF!?!?!?!?!? Shouldn't they be upset? Pissed? Frustrated?

Smiling?

This, I think, is the problem of this team ladies and gentlemen.


What a petty post. Do you follow them around town examining their facial expressions too? How bout their wardrobes, should they only be allowed to wear black and hang their heads with a sufficient dour and empty gaze?

Can they have relations with their significant others, or do they need to play at 500 do do that?

Can you post a list of behaviors allowed and not allowed and the appropriate record that goes with it? I'm sure they don't want to risk the attitude police lurking in the shadows in a weak moment when for some strange reason they do not want to cry becuase they play for a 4-9 team.

Why don't we focus on the games and how they play, not if their personal demeanor meets appropriate levels of humility for their record?


um, yeah kazoo, god forbid we actually expect the athletes we're paying millions of dollars to care if they're winning or losing. :roll:

That's not what I said. Next!!!!

You're kidding, right? You're okay with our players laughing it up while getting their collective butts handed to them? You're okay with them apparently not caring? I say "apparently" because that's what "smiling" portrays to me - a sign that they just don't care.

You can't understand that?

Now I'm wondering which of our posts is petty?
OK, it wasn't an aberation. One petty post follows the other.

BossHog already addressed my response to this, so I won't repeat it. I can't do better than he did.

Thanks Boss!!!!

Totally true!!!! Just don't forget that others can express their opions too, including of the ones you post.

I agree. I was trying to defend my post a bit. I know the problems with taking things out of context. I just didn't like seeing the smiles and all so I just voiced that opinion. To me, it just "appeared" like the players didn't really care. Sure. I could be completely wrong about that (and I hope I was).

It's just what me (and the rest of the fans in my section) are seeing.

I was with you until "and the rest of the fans in my section." While you may have heard agreement by some, you obviously can't speak for all the fans in your section. Nor should you try, they can speak for themselves

No they can't! They're not THN members! :D Also, I can certainly comment about what all of us are "seeing". I just can't comment on how all of us are interpreting what we are seeing! Capiche?

Yes, I got it. Your posts are not confident and require the validation of others. And since others can't be trusted to say the right thing the post asserts it for them. And I'm not continuing the silly debate. You can speak for yourself. Period.
