Re: Why I love this forum

It’s a mob and clique mentality there too. If you go against popular opinion then you have 100 people either make fun of what you said or prove how wrong you are. I’m on their EE board but just stay away from their ssf page. Get the info here minus the BS. Like I’ve said there is a country club, over here is like your local hangout

+1 Facts.

There are some good folks over there but I agree, it's a mob mentality when you are too outspoken and disagree on certain players.

That is pretty much how all forums that are active work, with the biggest difference being the aggression/hostility level and general board IQ.

If we all agreed or didn't disagree a thread would be a single post with 127 likes. If someone's opinion is not the popular or majority opinion then they should expect healthy debate from multiple sources.

I have owned and moderated multiple forums from sports, to gaming, to cars... the subject matter changes but the rest is similar.

Debate between people with an open mind is healthy and educational. It gets sideways when people have ownership of an idea, an agenda, or go ad hominem.

I like it here, I know who knows what, who the stat guys are, the theory guys, and who played what... I know who to walk away from because they have a chip, and who to poke at because they have a sense of humor.

Re: Why I love this forum

This board, overall seems to have posters about 20 years older on average, who seem to have jobs, and not live in their mother's basements. But that really doesnt apply to everyone at site-X, just the loudest. You can tell by the 15 year old comic-nerd vocabulary of their prominent members. (I wonder if they still "pwn" each other?) I dont know. It may have changed. I know the political hate was insufferable, even before politics heated up.

It just caught me off guard, because I come from a time, when if you were a Saints fan, anyone else brave enough to be seen in Saints stuff was automatically your friend. The internet, and its ugly, was new to me. I come to this board here and I find grownups who had nothing to prove, and had a sense of humor, and they got mine.

Im different from the rest of the posters here, now, because I know very little of college prospects, if anything. I cant name the whole roster. I dont know the 40-times of each player, or all the various nuances of coverage, zones, etc.

My knowledge is mostly retro- I can name the 84 O-line, and I have a list of the saddest losses in our history- most of my knowledge is historic. Im also interested in stories from our older posters about Tulane stadium, and training camps past. I once had lunch with former Saint All Pro Tommy Myers, who played in the 70s, and he had a wealth of stories, some I cant tell.

As some of you know, I sometimes organize real life events with us-- we've had a crawfish party every year for 10 years. Our tailgate parties in Houston are legendary, and I've traveled with the team from San Francisco to Tampa. Maybe a reason I may be more responsible with my words here, than some people on the internet, is because I expect to be face to face with some of you.

I'm a Brees-ist, and a Payton-ster, and I love Amer'ca. I have friends who disagree with me about everything.

Re: Why I love this forum

Obviously first and foremost I love to post here and read others viewpoints about the Saints and the outlook of our team. But I've been on here long enough to know that if I drop my guard and wish to chat about some things going on in my life then that is fine too. I don't use social media and I don't do that on any other site.

Today I'm going to visit my cousin in prison and got to be honest I'm kind of nervous because I have never visited an inmate before and it kind of gives me the heebie jeebies. But I'm worried about him and want to see how he is doing. He was arrested on assault and drug charges, not sure of the details of his case because he had distanced himself from the family before the arrest. He's got 5 kids so it is a tough situation, wish there was more I could do.

You are totally fine from a safety standpoint but I know itís still nerve wracking. The little bit of hope you will bring him with your visit will be a huge help when it comes to him getting through his sentence. Sometimes just knowing someone cares is all these guys need to get through it.

Hopefully one day they will legalize stuff and it minimizes drug related violence, prison overpopulation and legal costs.

You are doing a great thing for him.
