Smith Drops

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I\'m just wondering where all this anger is coming from. Valid question, I\'ve noticed it too. Please don\'t tell me that they got to you....

WhoDat,

Thanks for the reply. It is sometimes hard to tell whether or not something is a response to a post you\'ve made or just a slight change of subject.

I guess I took \"agenda\" very broadly, such that it included \"perspective\". I\'m not sure that a perspective doesn\'t constitute an agenda; but I can see how we might take there to be a negative connotation to \"agenda\", whereas we would not with \"perspective\".

Well, at least let\'s hope this article reminds us to have a little perspective.

Smith hasn\'t done jack until he\'s done it on the field in the NFL.

I hope this little realization puts the brakes on all the \"Deal Howard!\" poppycock I\'ve been reading for the last couple of weeks.

Danno - I\'ve always thought you were one of the most fair, witty, and intelligent posters on this board. What\'s with the extreme determination you\'ve got going on to disagree with 08 and myself? I know you really want to be up on this team, that\'s fine, but man... you\'re starting to sound a little like BC last off-season. I\'m not trying to pick on you, I\'m just wondering where this came from. I can almost see you in my head walking around the room talking to yourself and shouting at the monitor. Seriously man, I\'m not trying to get you more worked up, I\'m just wondering where all this anger is coming from.
People pushing agendas, ignoring or twisting facts, untruths and half-truths irritate me.
Especially when its a MODERATOR?
I\'ll bet out of his last 100 posts, 99 are negative hatchet jobs on players or coaches. Its transparent. Its like a weasly Democrat trashing the USA over and over because it fits their agenda.
I once vowed I\'d never read or respond to that vomit anymore, but I failed and got sucked back in. Its like arguing with a woman. You may be 100% right but you aren\'t gonna convince her of it.
Now I gotta wipe off the vomit and bring my blood pressure back down.

OK Mr helper, Why title it \"Smith Drops\"?
Smith drops what?
Does he drop in the draft rankings? NO! That was 2 weeks ago.
Does his talent drop now that he\'s a Saint?
2 of 4 scouts?
Why not title it \"Saints nab one of two best DE\'s in draft\".

That would be like me titleing that article on the Saints wanting Deuce at 225 as
\"Deuce McAllister: Fat, lazy cancer!\"

I don\'t see why this has become yet another one of these threads. 08 posted an interesting article, and I thought we were discussing it (aside from a few perhaps \'oer hasty and somewhat nasty remarks). However, this has just become another one of those \"make fun of everyone else\'s view\" (and, while you\'re at it, make fun of them too) threads.

Why can\'t we just talk about what the article SAYS. Please feel free to say what you think it implies, perhaps link it to other things, but for crying out loud stop talking about who on this board you find annoying/hateful/whatever - why does that matter? Wait, don\'t answer that question, it was rhetorical.

WhoDat presented what seemed to me like the right attitude in this comment:
\"JKool - Also not really talking to you. I don\'t know if I think all posts have an agenda. Different perspectives maybe... regardless of what some people might tell you, I do not post to this board with the intent of making people \"join my team\" and become the \"most negative persons\" in the world. I simply try to call it like I see it. The only people that I consistently try to question are BillyC (and his 20 or so aliases) and Saintfan... and that\'s mostly b/c it\'s fun.\" Not only that WhoDat, questioning peoples views is the point of discussion! And, I\'m sure you\'ll agree, it is not about making fun of them.

Well, some people are more malicious than others - when the picking on is good natured (which it has been at times), then it seems fine to me. However, in other cases, like this thread, it APPEARS TO ME to be mean spirited and serves no other purpose than discussion ending.

Deal with it ....

OK Mr helper, Why title it \"Smith Drops\"?
Smith drops what?
The original title is Packer related ......Which has nothing to do with the Saint player content . Why title it Smith drops ?? If some poster was wondering why Smith may have dropped , here is a possible answer ....

I once vowed I\'d never read or respond to that vomit anymore, but I failed and got sucked back in. Its like arguing with a woman. You may be 100% right but you aren\'t gonna convince her of it.
Not while trying to sing in the sunshine glee club about teams that continually post 8-8 and 9-7 records . Philip Morris has a job for you ....

The sunshiners have a glee club?! Not fair! Of course, they don\'t have their own sports drink like WhoTang, do they?
