    Want a good laugh

    Go through the game posts by all of our so called fans. Pathetic, horrible, we are gonna lose this game etc... If I could figure out how to do it I would cut and paste some of the posts and put them on here. Seriously, some of you guys need to maybe just step back from the keyboard until the third quarter or so. You make a Debbie Downer look like a ray of sunshine. Give the team some time and cut the players some slack. They are just human beings and do make mistakes just like anyone else. I dont know if this thread will be cut but if its not and one of you guys can, how about cutting and pasting some of our "fans" posts so they can see for themselves how they look during the game. Sorry for the rant but when people are calling us losers and predicting a loss after less than 15 minutes it kinda irks me.

    Re: Want a good laugh

    I haven't participated in a game thread since basketball season but you have to take what people post in them with a grain of salt. It's instant reaction so you don't put a lot of thought into what you're saying. Combine that with people who overreact and you get some silly posts.

    Re: Want a good laugh

    I hear ya. It's actually best to stay off the board during the game and either attend or just watch. Or just brush it off like I do. There's some idiots in every crowd. I am one of those idiots sometimes too :)

    this is a message board, if you dont like it get off! there is no reason to call people out for voicing there opinion. people had a right to be upset, the cyclones did not play very well today.

    Pathetic and horrible are true characteristics of the first half.

    Re: Want a good laugh

    Yeah, you should try sitting next to me at a game (and sometimes I feel bad for the fans who do). I'm very passionate and hyped up, and like some of the posters on this board some of my instant reactions are irrational. It's just part of sports. Usually about an hour after the game I can put it all in perspective, but during the game you've just got to take people's reactions with a grain of salt.

    I'm with the OP. There is a reason I dont read in-game threads anymore.

    That wasn't a good laugh. The thread should be titled, I'm a better fan than the rest of you--bow down!

    Not saying that. I was kinda bummed and was looking for a joke or story about something that happened at the game. The title was misleading.

    I think I titled it correctly. If you dont have tv coverage sometimes the only place you can view the game is through the computer. I understand getting upset but calling your own team pathetic because of a few bad plays in the 1st quarter, C'mon that is LAME. Other teams are going to score. Its the team with the most points at the end of the game that wins.
