Noone said they do but this is a message board devoted to the sole purpose of fans discussing sports. The main sport that is in season is football so we are discussing that. The fact that the team got beat by 42 points by a transitioning team sucks for a lot of fans and wouldn't you know it, we are discussing that game. If your not here to discuss the games then what is the point for being here. People have different opinions and I'm glad this board is not an echo chamber of sunshine and rainbows or the board would get boring fast. If you don't want to read it take a play out of Wilders book and click ignore on the people you don't like.

Wow. I would hope anyone on this board that witnesses any fans verbally assaulting dejected players during or after a tough loss would give that fan a piece of their own mind. What a douche.

I would have loved to hear the man tell us that he and the other MEN on this team planned to silence us by performing like they should. But no. Just click the block button and see ya next Saturday.

heh, your post reminded me what I read yesterday.

This is a prime example of why some of us can’t take those who say “we cross a line by complaining about jones” here seriously.

This board is EXTREMELY tame compared to most bcs boards.

There are Kentucky fans who want to fire Pitino right now......just saying.

This is the only board I read so if that's the case I don't want to be BCS. =] haha that's like telling my kids to take my keys when I get older and keep wanting to drive but don't realize I'm a liability.

There is a father of a former ODU player on facebook that calls out players by name and coaches at ODU. If you think we are critical of the QB position and BW here you should read his statements.

Just because others are worse doesn't make it right. Thats what my 6 year old tries to pull on me...

Not knowing who it is, you have parents of 30 new kids every year, some of them are going to be disgruntled shitheads.

No one needs to be trying to fight player that's crazy.

But some people get so offended by everything on this board. People on here need to get some tougher skin.

It really is scary to think about... How the kids being brought up that way are going to function, if at all, in the real world when they're adults
