s**t isaint so black and white as some posters here on both spectrums believe it to be.
It's not about "defending anything and everything", I think it's more about the understanding that no team, player, or coach is perfect. Once people understand that then this place will have a lot less meltdowns.
No verb1der. You know the type im talking about. The type that tell fans that they have no right to be so "Judgmental" of Aldons behavior etc. etc. For some it is about defending anything and everything at ALL costs.
I would say 99.9% of the fanbase realizes that no team is perfect. But IMO once you have put in a certain amount of time as a fan, you have earned the right to be critical of your team, especially when some of the criticism is deserved. Not all posters that have a critical post about an aspect of the team are ready to jump off the ledge. Some are yes, but some are simply discussing what they see going on with the team on a DISCUSSION board.
Things would get pretty boring around here if everyone always felt and discussed things in the same way.
