Agreed, but you have to go about things in the right way or else you just look like a troll when voicing that opposite opinion. Especially when it's a constant thing.
Yes, but this has been going on for quite a while on both sides. There are some people in the minority opinion who blatantly get aggressive and resort to name-calling and accuse the majority of ganging up, when really, the majority is just...being a majority. People need to understand opinions aren't always going to be split 50/50.
On the other side, there are some in the majority who are getting a bit holier-than-thou around here and if you don't agree with them, you get an instantly sarcastic or condescending response, which of course leads to more fighting.
Either way, it's really getting to be not that fun to post around here anymore. I've been here since 2005, as has KH12, and KBG has been around a while as well. We've all had our share of disagreements and we're all still here. The point is, no one likes a hivemind forum. The term itself is an oxy-moron. A forum is a place to present your opinions in a respectful manner and to discuss them, not to put people down because they think differently than you.
In fact, I like it better when there's dissension. It shows there are people that care a lot about the team and in the end, that's what builds the fanbase. Of course, when people feel strongly about their opinions, there's going to be arguing. (Which is why we're here ) But that doesn't mean you can get arrogant about your opinions. If everyone always had the right answer, obviously things would be a lot different. But as it is, people need to chill a bit on both sides. Just talk Bulls basketball and leave it at that.
The troll comments are coming from a very small portion of people, and it does need to stop. Whether or not certain users cause trouble or not, it needs to just be reported and left for mods to handle. And I can't speak for every mod, but I know I don't read through every post on here. Reporting is the only way some things will be seen.
This goes both ways though, as the other sides tend to often present their stances in sarcastic and baiting ways, and only showing up at opportune times to make remarks are not helping the matter. I'm not naming specific instances, but it has been a problem. Many have shown you can disagree respectfully, numerous times.
And there are far more than 7 posters posting on this forum. It still remains one of the largest and most active forums on the site, especially for a team going through a rough spell without a former MVP player.
And this thread's merit was built on the fact of Rose returning. It's pretty obvious that we're not going to be at the level we were last year at this point, with a widely new cast and without a former MVP. I understand both sides, but judging after 2 or 10 games isn't going to be accurate for either position, especially without Rose in the mix.
It is very active but i tend to think thats because of the same seven people bashing anyone with anything different to say. But everything else u said i either agree with or hope others start to emulate. I enjoy shammys stats and how he presents his arguements, but hate how u get 14 posts after that about how he beat someone down lol. I mean even thibs said the othet day he uses eyes more than stats but here he would be a moron for saying that. Im just using an example of a frequent situation in hopes that we can have more discussion as opposed to "comment deleted" lol

I disagree on the first part. I think that's a bit overblown, but it is something I'll be keeping a close eye on both ways.
Otherwise though, I agree and hope for the same. And thank you.
