It's hard when it's every thread. I could use ignore feature but some of negative stuff comes from posters I really like which doubly hurts my heart.
I don't see a lot of negative comments against you or the brackets beyond a bit of discourse over seeding, which is part of the fun IMO.

As for people being downers about the championship matchup, I think that means people care and have been invested in the whole thing. That's just evidence than people got invested and care about these. And banter can be fun.

All that said, it's complete hogwash that Caddyshack didn't obliterate The Sandlot and Russian interference is the only plausible explanation for this travesty.

I think it has been civil, for the most part. Most of negativity has been directed at how people voted, more so than the selection/seeding. And as you said that's part of the process.

As a committee member in several of these tournaments, I've seen worse.

On a personal note, as a participant-voter, "Hoosiers" not even reaching Final Four blows my mind. But the people have spoken! :)

I would have loved Hoosiers to win, but we have to understand that everyone has different views.

We could do a politician Bracket and really see how negative people get, or just stick to fun stuff. I vote for Pizza next. Nothing beats Casey’s Pizza after sitting in the warmer for a half hour.

based off the last poll of topics 3 stood way out in votes sports movies, stand up and cartoons. So the next 2 are locked in for those 2 with stand up being next which will also probably be polarizing but everything is these days so no matter the topic there will be griping.

Because of all you do on here, you sir are blessed and cursed with too many people that consider you a friend. People are always flipping **** at those they consider friends.

Maybe an extended break from these is needed. Seems like negativity grows with each one.

I would give you a "disagree" reply, but what I really want to say is to remember that most of the negative comments are people just being funny. These threads beg for overstatement and over-reaction.

If you need a break, take it. However, I didn't think this one had an inordinate amount of negativity, particularly the ones that were truly harsh.

Try, hard as it is, to focus just on the positive comments and chuckle at the negative ones.

Stand up will be cool, but I do have my favorites that are probably not the same as others. I definitely prefer clean comics myself.
