    I think some people here need to look in the mirror, and I'm not talking about him.

    A lot of pots calling the kettle black.

    I was, but I have this nasty little habit of saying truths even when it might make the situation worse. Plus I ran out of popcorn.

    I like truths.

    I simply expect a man of your incredible aptitude to take that gift and distribute it equally.

    Where were you when Landry was being cussed out? At home washing your tights? [emoji51][emoji51]

    Making popcorn.

    I'm not for people leaving. And Landry can handle himself -just like he did when people asked him to provide context for his link; which has been the expectation here since the site started. He had no issue being snarky by telling them they can view it when they get home, or to buy an iPhone. I didn't say anything and I haven't condemned him here either even though I think it was uncalled for as people do work and have limitations on what they can view and it has been an expectation here since day one.

    I didn't jump in then either. But I don't like people leaving, especially those who have been here for a long time. I've left it alone, until people start saying that it should be someone's last post. There are two sides to every coin; if that's how one feels, then they themselves also can have a final post and be done if we want to get right down to it. But again, I think that's a bad way to go.

    I've let them say whatever to each other, I have no dog in that fight. But being outside of it, I can see there are a few wrongs in here. Point blank, and I'm not taking sides with it.

    The only time I've said anything is when people start making statements that someone should leave, it is not their decision. Other than that, they can argue all they want. There are some posters here I consider to be jackasses, I won't tell them to leave though as it isn't my place to do so. I don't own the place.

    Plus I haven't seen him get cussed out in this thread, unless I've missed something. If you're referring to another thread I may not have seen it or again I've missed it. If this is a long standing issue I may not be as up to speed with it overall.

    Plus it is laundry day and yes I was washing my tights. :wink2:

    That's exactly what I did earlier here....it's rarely the best move.

    I have tried to stay out of the arguments for a couple of years now- I literally had 15 people on ignore up until a few months ago. But it got to the point where reading the forums was finishing a jigsaw puzzle...the conversations made no sense because people were replying to crazy things. So I took the ignores off to see what I was missing.

    And what did I see? Two page threads became 29 pages...all with people arguing over nothing that had to do with football or the Dolphins. Personal insults flying everywhere, rules ignored, etc. Every single post I clicked on was hijacked, which made sense why nobody was responding when I posted to the OP on-topic.

    Still, I tried to stay out of it until i saw people getting cussed out, being told they're stupid, idiots, morons, losers, etc. Nobody comes to forums to be belittled over something we are all supposed to love. So I started reporting both people I like here and the folks I don't care for....and the mods did a good job of getting the hate speech and rule violations to stop- ALMOST.

    I stood up for Landry because even if he did break an unwritten rule of not sharing a link, a few others were violating written rules about attacking people, being hateful, etc. Your pot and kettle analogy fits perfectly.....let me break six rules to tell you you're breaking one rule. I was just tired of seeing people quit here over and over again because they're getting bashed over nothing. And despite what others have said, you can look at the site's numbers and see for yourself that active users have steadily declined over the years.

    Welcome to the pot of the month club!

    No one but no one attacked him for not sharing a link. He was attacked because he lashed out at people because they asked for a link or because they provided an excerpt. That's your champion.

    Many of us, including yourself in this thread (post #7), lash out because of frustration, but what Landry did was straight up malicious. That's why he got attacked. To say that's wrong, all while absolving him and doing your own attacking, is the problem.

    im not gonna even acknowledge the ridiculousness anymore..they get off on seeing their opinions in print become a topic..

    you know what I like to do?..go watch Jay ajayi in college, imagine him behind dallas's online and study how gifted a runner this dude is..I mean he may not be quite as good as the best of the best in the league, but for a 4th round pick, someone who I wanted to draft, he's a freakin steal.

    Guess what? I will post stuff, maybe I will quote the source, maybe I will post the link, or maybe not.
    It's amazing, because most of the posters on this thread would rather stay off subject because they can't formulate opinions on their own about the subject itself. they need to rely on sources to help their ideas.

    You make posts based off of information from an article and that makes you a free thinker but requesting a link to the article you read so they can also read it and form their own opinion like you did makes a person a sheep and open for ridicule from you? Posting an excerpt from that article for people who may be blocked at work is also an offense worthy of your scorn?

    Woman? Of course, you're THAT guy too.

    No, you did in fact, jump on another poster's post and heap scorn on them because they posted an excerpt from an article. They didn't insult you in any way, yet you attacked them. What are you not understanding about this?

    You've been getting some terrible advice through PMs. I know the usual cast of characters have been telling you to go for it with me, but you're looking terrible and childish in following their advice. Just remember, they aren't telling you those things because they respect you (they don't), they are doing it because they hate me. You are just a means to an end they want but won't get.

    I agree.

    But where were you when he was getting cussed out and **** on in another thread? Why didn't you stand up for what's right then, yet seem to be so disgusted with a "woman" comment?

    I'm just be being honest here, Landry was the centerpiece of one of the worst lashing outs in this sites history, yet I have a weird feeling HE or someone else will be given a "vacation".

    And that's the problem.

    Oh here we go. The you're the new guy attack. Somehow because you were on this site back when you had to use a typewriter somehow invalidates my statement. I wasn't speaking for you, I don't even know you. Actually until that post, I'd never even seen you. I don't know how you have posted so many times as I've been on here for a year without even coming across you or your posts are so unmemorable that you didn't stand out. Do you want a site to post on? Then "new guys" like me need to actually want to keep coming on here. I've been a Dolphins fan for 30+ years. Was on Finheaven since it's inception and left because of all the bickering that happens just like on this thread.

    There's a bunch of you that are just grumps and channel your failure at your middle management Kia sales positions into your infrequent and angry posts. It's not necessary. Keep it fun or regardless how long you have been here, go away or just go talk to your fellow grumps and slap me on ignore. This is supposed to be about the Dolphins not argument style.

    That was the thread where you didn't post a brief summation of the source material. It kinda escalated quickly as someone asked you to post it then the next person jumped on that answer in a more explosive manner then Fin D got involved and started hurling curse words at you . I don't think you can see it because after it was argued by someone else it and many other posts were then deleted to get the train back on track. Fin D had at least 6 different pieces that were ****** which he cited he was free and clear to do because there is a profanity filter so what the *** difference did it make. Please note, I'm not swearing and breaking any rules just typing in *s to demo. I've probably ticked off enough people for one morning lol.

    And I'm simply asking my fellow veteran poster's WHY they have become so upset with some for things like "woman" and "troll" yet step aside when much much worse is trotted out on to the board habitually by some.

    Either way, I'm feeling weird talking about all this dramatic message board stuff.

    Don't have time.

    I'm going to go see if I can get this Kia Sportage off the lot.

    I was only replying to your post..I really don't know you either..I just looked at the immature angry content of your post and thought, what type of fan comes here and hurls insults to people that have been here a long time..I think its wrong..have some respect for the site.

    I don't have a problem with you, I don't put anyone on ignore, once again I think thats silly..Just think you can do a better job understanding other peoples opinion, frustration, confusion, without trying to hurt their feelings with your sarcastic angry wit

    I must have missed that as well, as he's mentioned to me as well and honestly I don't know when that occurred.

    I've gotten into it with people, as pretty much we all have at some point - but I try hard not to make it a habit.

    I'm far from perfect, and I don't expect others to be perfect either. But I think this thread is going to be closed soon if we can't get it back to some level of normalcy.

    we all get pissed at times, but, this site is different and all of us have done different things to create a different environment than the others out there in nfl land, . its not about you and YOUR thread...its about creating a good environment for the site, a camaraderie, that is above the rest, and sometimes that takes all of us to be more understanding of how each one of us works and actually embrace the differences and find things about the personality of the poster that is interesting and cool, after all, we all have the same passionate interest and why were here, we want the dolphins to be the best..

    I legit don't care that I was called a woman. I don't think genders (or races, sexual preferences, etc.) are insults.

    It's just:

    1. It was intended to be insult which is what I keep getting told by these same people is the bad thing I do, yet they keep doing it as well.
    2. I think it's interesting these are the type of people to think that calling someone a woman implies they aren't tough or can handle things.

    Okay, but you have to see it from his side too. He has a life outside of this forum, and it's not his job to tell us about news articles or stories he's read. He does that out of love for our community and we should appreciate people like that. The guy has posted hundreds of links to other stories over the past several years- it's not like he doesn't know how to. He just forgot, or decided not to link to it or whatever the case may be. Maybe he thought the author was a jerk but it was a point worth sharing here- who knows? That's his business.

    The point is, he was obviously offended and felt like people were telling him he didn't do enough to be a poster here....when he does more for the site than most of us. That would piss anyone off. And yes, you're right....Brandon didn't mean it that way. I know this because Brandon emailed me and apologized for creating the argument (I told him that he did nothing wrong, because he really didn't. The ugly stuff came later).

    I'm not a champion for either of them though, and I'm certainly not your arch rival like you're making it out to be. I was just trying to get a few frequent posters to move past the petty stuff and start talking about football again. Nobody was trying to be malicious- it was all out of frustration. Just let it go and let's talk about football.

    Please pay attention. This is so frustrating that you keep not understanding this.

    This had nothing to do with him not posting a link. No one is mad about him not posting a link.

    This has to do with the fact that when he was politely asked for a link he went full d-bag. He attacked a poster for no reason. He was so pissed about this, that in a different thread, a few days later, when a different poster merely posted an excerpt from an article he then again went full d-bag.

    Him being busy or posting links in the past has literally nothing to do with him lashing out a poster for asking for a link. Nothing at all.
