I don't think its fair to use the term "realist" if you're talking about certain trolls. Those guys call themselves "realists" but they're really just living in the past, or trying to. "If we only had Bill Walsh as our coach once more" is not being realistic.
Those who take a reasonable view of what they see on the field are actually realists, and that includes a great number of guys who post on this board.
For example, it seems reasonable to say that the jury's still out on Raye's ability as a play caller--that's realistic. Likewise, the issues with the OL appear reasonable and realistic at the present time.
"Singletary should be immediately replaced with Shanahan" would not seem to be reasonable or realistic. Posting such a comment is just trolling for an angry response. IMHO.
Agreed brother, but THEY called themselves "realists", not me. They didn't see themselves as trolls.
Sabrason and singfan are the 2 that comes to mind.
But you did call out ALL "realists" You can say haters. Don't have to dress it up with the quotations. No need to be politically correct in here.
I have to be politically correct if I want this thread to stay alive. Besides, there is a difference between negative nellys, debbie downers vs haters and trolls.
A: As if the Mods don't see where this thread is heading.
B: If they are indeed trolls. not only are you not going to get anything out of starting this thread (except more irritated than you are now apparently or you wouldn't have started this thread) but you're also contributing to their behavior.
A lose/lose in my book! Your keyboard only has so many keystrokes in it!
He makes a "realistic" point.
