    When Does it stop?

    At what point will the fan base get past LE vs. Wayne vs. GMac. It seems like everytime something positive happens the "Greg Bashers/Wayne Lovers" are completely wrong and this proves it. Or when something bad happens "Greg Sucks, bring back Wayne, LE, Orr, etc."

    I'm just wondering if at any point this line of thinking stops? Do the Hawks want Alfred Back? Does OU want Sampson back?

    I'm not saying that Greg is better then these two or that he's not, I'm just wondering what it would take to bring a divided fan base together.

    It wont stop until we start winning again. Some just cant let go and move on. I guess it gives us something to talk about this slow summer.

    This comes from both sides (i.e., both the McD lovers/Wayne bashers and the Wayne lovers/McD bashers).


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Winning solves any and all problems, but it's an uphill battle.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Again with the kick in the growing, love it, it's making me smile.

    I agree it does come from both sides and almost everyone is to blame on this because almost all of us have taken one side or the other.

    Easy. Win. Win and LE and Wayne are history. Lose and people will see roses left in the past.
