Here's another gem of a laugh-o-riot from your reply to x626xBlack:








Tell me, are you a comedian by trade or is it just something that comes naturally to you?
I don't see what's so funny. The one thing that found funny was you saying that you were done talking to me yet here you are still talking. Way to stick to your principles.
Tell me. Are you a saints fan or not?

Cause you seem to act as if you DON'T want the saints to win 3-4 super bowls.

dynasty is just an easier way to say "3 or more super bowls."

I should also remind you that YOU CAME HERE. This is my thread. I'm just here to be here.

Just go away for gods sakes.

Re: Will the Saints have a dynasty before Brees retires?

Per wiki:

A sports dynasty is a team that dominates their sport or league for multiple seasons or years, but in many cases, whether a team has achieved a dynasty is often subjective, and can be a frequent topic of debate among sports fans.
Ya'll are all wrong!

I admit that I said I was done with you, but your replies are like little car crashes from which I can't avert my eyes from no matter how much I try.

And yes you got me, I'm not really a Saints' fan, nor am I Finnish, I really don't know anything about football or anything else for that matter, and I definitely don't want the Saints to win more Super Bowls.

You've read me like an open book, and I commend you for it sir!

Exactly, and that was my original point - I don't personally see a dynasty as was initially given as the definition for it in this thread. I was only trying to get my definition across without necessarily saying that the other definitions were wrong - just that I don't agree with that definition.

Yeah because trying to twist my words and make some idea that I was somehow making a racist comment and implying I'm some northern elitist sounds SOOOOOOOOOOO much like you were trying to have a healthy debate.

You're still here being a jerk for no reason. Or am I supposed to look "deeply" into those smiley faces to see their deep meaning?
Since you don't even know when football was founded then it seems appropriate to question your football IQ or your allegiance to the saints.

Plus. Why would you even go off topic in the first place?

The name of this thread isn't called "what is a dynasty?"

It's called "Will the saints have a dynasty before brees retires?"
I already explained in the top of the thread that there's probably other people who have different opinions on "dynasties".
I asked them to go by MY opinion(which is also the majority opinion evidenced by mitches quote and multiple sources) which was 3-4 rings in a short time. If I used a minority opinion then I would have more than just 2 PEOPLE disagreeing with me.

Did you see that? No. Cause you don't care about being reasonable.

It's basically the equivalent of trolling and you're still doing it right now.

Look, I don't want to fight with you and I hope we can just put this thing behind us and act cordial towards each other. And I apologize to you if I hurt your feelings or if I belittled your opinions.

As for the "twisting of your words, making it seem like you were making a racist comment and implying that you were a northern elitist" - that was not my intention and if it came across that way it is very unfortunate.

This is what I said:

Like I wrote there, I wasn't sure if you were trying to do that, and because of it I tried to convey my reaction to what you wrote previously in a very tentative manner - because English isn't my native language, I sometimes do misunderstand the meaning of what people are trying to say, and, therefore, I started with the "I don't know" because I don't want to overreact if indeed I'm wrong in my interpretation. Nowhere did I say that you were a "northern elitist" in this post or any of the ones following it, nor would I ever say that, because that type of a thinking is not part of my world view.

I didn't appreciate the things you said about my nationality, but I'm willing to let it go because I'm sure you didn't really mean anything by those comments.

So, if you're game, let's just agree to disagree about the definition of a dynasty, and hope that the Saints will win many more Lombardi Trophies in the years to come.

I apologize for the comments on your nationality. I retaliated to that because 626 black responded to you and HE called me a northerner so I just assumed that you were in on it too. Basically I was offended by the northerner quotes the same way your offended by the Finland quotes.

I've met trolls who pretend to turn something in an argument into a race or religious argument and act like I'm a hater or something. I know many foreigners and diverse groups who would spit on these kind of people so that's why it irked me.

No hard feelings. WHO DAT!

"Can't we all just get along?"
Gonna be tough, defense will have to improve ASAP. We have the personnel offensively, but I'm not sure Spag's has all he needs in place to make it happen. A "Superbowl First" winning ring at home wouldn't hurt, especially to all the hater's and naysayers.
