I was just defending xan's right to voice his opinion on these boards, and since he did it in a way that is in accordance to the rules the site administrator has set in place - I see no reason to make the content of his thread to consist of one hit after another on him, although many of those hits were well-mannered and in jest. Incidentally, I am also guilty of joking around and at times maybe taking it too far, so I'm far from being innocent in that regard.

I probably overreacted, and like xan already stated - he doesn't need any defending. I have nothing against no one on these boards, on the contrary, but I'd also like to see our written transactions to be more cordial at times, because "united we stand!"
Of course you didn't direct it at me. You didn't direct it at anyone, specifically. But as far as I can tell, everyone seems to be posting the same type of sentiments, and so you've pretty much indicted us all. I didn't say you were targeting just me, which is why I keep using the word "us" in my responses.

I'm just not seeing what you are considering to be so mean spirited about any of the posts. People don't like being talked down to, especially when people were otherwise in a good mood. It was uncalled for, and I for one am not dumb enough to fall for his cop-out, trying to back pedal and say all he wants is to win one game at a time. As if anyone had contradicted that idea to begin with. We know you can't win more than one at a time.

I understand you are trying to represent and defend the right to opinion, and I don't take issue with you on that. But this is an isolated case where the opinion was more of a rant against being a happy fan, than it was of being a rational, objective view.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

It's a nice change from the earlier season threads.

That two-game road trip for me will be the highlight of my year regardless of how the remainder of the season goes.

EPIC roadtrip for me.

Thanks to SkyMike and BudsDrinker for making it that!

WHO DAT?!

Don't be Karl Rove.
The Falcons will NEVER be able to live down the fact that they lost their "Pay Back" game by not being able to get 1 yard on the worst D in history to a team without a head coach when tehy were undefeated. It was a HUGE deal regardless of us making the post season.

That's what happens when we mix kool-aid with Ripple.

I'm with you. Winning is never a big deal.
