Newbies are certainly welcome, but that doesn't mean you're not going to take some from the regulars. You have to earn your stripes here, and even then most of the camaraderie is exhibited through good natured barbs. Jmo, but maybe your posts would be better received if you didn't start crying like a little girl when everyone doesn't fall over themselves in a race to annoint a team that is dominating the worst division in football.

Plus, ya gotta have a thick skin. I've taken some shots over years here. Some probably deserved, others not-so-much, but take it in stride and make your points. Not everybody looks at things the same way.


I do have thick skin. What I am complaining about is the absence of any discussion, not whether my arguments are agreed with, and not what side you are on. I don't care if you take 50 jabs at me so long as you get to the effing point and explain why you are disagreeing with me.

This board appears to be full of grandstanders. Yes, "earn your stripes". I get it. But I'm not asking to be liked or agreed with. I'm just asking for respect and substance too, along with however many jabs you care to give me at the same time.
