My thoughts exactly!
I can't stand it when fans make these ridiculous assertions about the hawks that have absolutely no facts to back 'em up and then there's like 1,000 replies reinforcing the original baseless statement. It just makes me think they don't know much about football - which is fine - but man, put a lid on it if you can't back up what you're saying.. I've been lurking on these boards WAAAY longer than I've been posting but I never would have signed up if I didn't feel like the overwhelming majority of people on these boards back up their opinions with facts and/or relevant observations.
I couldn't in good conscience make some absurd statement about an opposing team with no facts to back it up b/c I know that I would get an earful from the rest of you guys if I did so.
What makes me mad is when opposing fans refuse to acknowledge the Seahawks as being a legitimate contender based on nothing other than inherent bias (which I'll freely admit I'm guilty of) and EVERYONE on their board goes along with it w/o any sort of healthy debate or acknowledgement of potential inaccuracies . I mean, I HATE the 9ers and every other team in the NFL (with the exception of the Ravens, I don't know why, lol...) but I'll acknowledge fact that the 9ers have a good team - I hate their coach, I hate their QB, and I hate their fans - but they play good football..
I know there are always going to be exceptions to this but man are they few and far between..
It's amazing how far a little respect can go...
