The issue here isn't bipolarity, but rather that some view this forum as having 2 people: themselves and "The Other".

This is particularly so because one side or another will be more vocal, depending on whether the facts support them. If Kreider plays poor, those who say his AHL performance matters will be more vocal. If he plays well, those who say he's more fit for the NHL than lower levels are more vocal. But these are different people.

To view everyone else other than yourself as one person is not only ignorant, but very arrogant.
It's not the fact that certain people disagree with each other.

It's the fact that certain people swing with the team. They overreact regardless of whether or not the team is winning or losing. Rangers fans tend to do this a lot. I'm guilty of it myself.

Bad play leads to a lot of knee-jerk reactions. This isn't an opinion, it's a fact. Look at the difference in the board when the team is winning and playing well vs when the team is losing and not looking good on the ice. The difference is obvious and scary.

We're getting off topic here. Seems to be happening a lot lately...
