I'm not saying a damn thing in terms of the arguement you were having but you LITERALLY stole this quote from me almost word for word from our PM only I was saying it at you instead of for you and I meant it but I can tell you mean this as well.

Then I read something like this and I realize
A) Speaking in absolutes usually results in being wrong although it may be representative of a general truth

B) we have a lot of tenured posters around here who might know the game REALLY well but we also have some VERY flawed individuals b/c that's what being human is and I dunno where that expertise is but it ain't displayed often in these threads that's for sure.

C) We give each other WAY too much sh** for stating opinions. The more outrageous and borderline moronic an opinion SEEMS to be the more we should be laughing it off instead we launch into questioning someone as a fan and launching personal attacks

It's extremely stupid b/c from what i've seen no one on here has displayed much in terms of any actual expertise or ability to discuss the game. Even lurking for what seems like forever I barely saw anything like the cool little bits of minutiae that gets discussed in a behind the bench episode or even a stupid ass little segment in the middle of an On the fly episode for example. Nothing to improve my awareness of what to look for on the ice to be a "better fan" of either the Rangers or just hockey in general.

Yet reading many arguements and posts you'd think there was a high society of posters or something. An HF Hockey elite. Maybe we're all just a giant collection of *******. Seems about normal
