Things got ridiculous last season, and we're not going to have that again this year. We won't close the thread, we'll just thread ban everyone that's acting like a child.

Consider yourselves warned, fans of both teams.
One legitimate question: Are we then not allowed to bring up anything remotely controversial from either team? It's going to get heated either way you look at it, I think. 10 years ago, you'd have nothing but friendly banter back and forth. I think we can ease up on it a bit, but sweeping things under the rug wouldn't be the right way to go about it, either. Baseless bashing, sure. Who even cares about that, other than to get a rise? I think this is a lot more nasty of a rivalry than, say, Mets and Yankees. Those two can co-exist fairly well in a single thread with no real crossover and heat back and forth.

I tend to second the vote for separate threads. What's one more sports thread when we have a million OT threads going on all the time? At least it would be a legitimate sports thread.
