I wonder why it is when you refuse to toe the company line it is "negative?" What's that all about? Is everyone supposed to predict 13-3 and a division title? We have been Saints fans for a long time, forgive us if it's hard to predict things we have never done, like make it to a Superbowl, or NFC champ game. Win more than A playoff game. And in recent history, do anything above being mediocre. Everyone here is hopeful no matter how they post, but blowing smoke isn't gonna make this a better forum. It is a forum and in here more than anywhere else, EVERYONE's opinion is welcome. If you see no wrong, post it. If you don't like the way the team is shaping up again, post it. Noone can begrudge you that cause that is what we are all here for. Let's not call people "negative" just cause they don't agree with your outlook. We have one "when is the sun gonna shine" guy already.

All I can say on Sullivan is I HOPE he turns into something besides waste this year, but his history has shown it isn't in him. If he has lost weight, that is great, I hope as well he has gained a desire to earn his paycheck and contribute to this team. We could use the help.

I wondered when you'd come running in. Why put words in my mouth?

I asked for no predictions from you. Why ramble on about predictions? You can read, right?

Save all that "blowing smoke" talk for someone else. I'm not interested.

I made an observation on all the negativity on this board. Nothing you can say can change that.

I see the trap was set, and it paid off as you'd anticipated VooDoo. Clever.

Whodi, I agree that people not "towing the line" should not get called negative. I also agree that I am more interested in realistic assessments than negative or positive ones, but aren't we all? Eitherway, I am sure that neither you nor I are interested in a discussion of negativity and positivity (I just wanted to say that).

It really is good just to have everyone back! And great to see some new faces too!

I also agree with this:
Everyone here is hopeful no matter how they post, but blowing smoke isn't gonna make this a better forum. It is a forum and in here more than anywhere else, EVERYONE's opinion is welcome. If you see no wrong, post it. If you don't like the way the team is shaping up again, post it. Noone can begrudge you that cause that is what we are all here for.
Well put.

Setting a trap? Hardly. I asked a very simple question and now I'm being accused of setting a trap. And you're a moderator? Next time send me a personal message instead of calling me out on the board.

In fact, I really don't have a whole lot left to say if this is the type of stuff I've got to anwser to.

Thanks Kool. I see the new guy wants to make a name for himself. Good go bud, voodoo is it, but I ain't gonna argue with you. See what you wish. But it is no more negative here than what you can read any day of the week in the papers and online about the Saints. More people on this forum are hopeful than anywhere else I have seen, and that comes with being a Saints fan. Running in and calling people negative then jumping on them is not the way to be endeared to a board. If you have a "positive" view, we all welcome it. Everyone who posts makes this a better forum, whether you agree with what they say or not.

So far I've got saintwhodi trying to run me off the baord. Then I've got Jkool (a moderator) accusing me of setting traps.

Way to go guys. I ask why so many negative posts and this is the response I get? I don't need this.

GOODBYE!!

Acused? I was joking. I thought it was funny that you seemed to be waiting for Whodi.

I'm currently not moderating the site, and I apologize that you took me the wrong way.

No one wants you "run off". I was actually trying to compliment you.

Oh well.

Forgive me, but what about this statement would lead anyone to believe someone was trying to run them off?
