Of course they are going to be homer fans and ignorant to the strengths of any other teams. What do people expect? Some level of "respect" or acknowledgement? It isn't going to happen. Not here, not there and surely not in a forum of a division rival. To me, it is like looking for a fight that you can't win. Ehh.. I'm old and just don't have the energy for that. I see Hags fans here trying to argue opinions... that is never going to amount to anything, I surely don't want to see what it looks like in reverse on the Seahawks board.
Okay, this one I need to disagree with. I dont go to other message boards to be a poster, but just to read what others have to say about us, or about themselves. It gives a different fan perspective. While most of the other fans (especially seahawk fans) that seem to come to the zone the week we are playing them are complete homers and useless posters, there are a few, that have stayed around and have actually made our board a little more interesting and better. Hawker, RedAlice, NavyHawk. They are just fans. Not complete homers. Offer a different perspective here, where guys like Marvin and Beeker (who are on their boards) talk about the teams in complete respect for each other, and not the same old RW is better than Kap because......or Gore is better than Lynch because.....or Kap has a smallish head, or RW is a midget.......
You get what I'm saying? Not all people that go to other message boards are trolling or pure homers. I doubt anyone considers Marvin or Beeker a blind homer. So take the other fan posters with a grain of salt. Those that want to talk football and seem to have a clue seem to stick around, the blind homers coming to hate get run off or banned rather quick.
