There is a difference between what you are saying and what snow globe is doing. What you say fits with more reasonable users like GoPats. Snowglobe is a troll and this post is meant to start a flame war. Don't believe me? Look at his signature. Whenever there is a thread about Peyton he is always the first one to go in and attempt to start and argument. Look at topics he started for example, "Do you still think Peyton Manning is MVP?" (Started after his playoff loss),"Mannings arm strength may have been liability", "Eye opening stats about Mannings post season record." And those are the only ones that currently show in his history.
It be one thing if we're to attempt to have an intelligent conversation, but his posts serve mostly the purpose of discrediting Peyton and getting reassurance that his QB is great.
Stirring the pot is identical to being a troll? Saying something others might deem controversial is being a troll? Look, I revere Peyton Manning & after his Playoff loss I said some unflattering things about Peyton's problem winning in Playoff games & his difficulty closing games that he has a lead in? Does that make me a troll? Questioning the clutch factor in #18 too?
I suppose you could make the argument that I still believe Peyton can win another SB. He just needs more help & can't do it alone anymore. I still respect Peyton's work ethic, his accomplishments as a player, brother, husband, son, & father & I only ask these questions because I want these voids filled so he can win a 2nd SB & be the 1st QB in NFL history to win 2 SBs with 2 different teams. I haven't completely abandoned Manning; I have just realized where he is at in his career & that adjustments need to be made to put Yoda on the road to the Lombardi Promiseland.
The trick with people who strike a nerve with you is to realize that if there wasn't any truth to what they say it wouldn't affect you & knowing when to walk away & cool off. My friend Gramz & my 24 hour suspension from this site taught me that lesson. Stirring the pot only affects a person if they let it affect you & my friends will always respect me no matter what, even if they think my opinion on something is incredibly foolish & shortsighted in scope.
Look, everyone knows that I am not a huge Brett Favre fan & that I detest the Dallas Cowboys & sometimes I do go a little overboard stating that fact. I will admit it. But, I am cognizant of the fact that their are people who idolize both Brett Favre & the Dallas Cowboys so I try to tone it down & remember that. Some days are better than others in this endeavor, but I keep working at it...improving & getting better...
The word troll gets tossed around a lot when in fact it's merely a controversial notion that rubs some people the wrong way. It's really hard to ascertain true intent on life without a 1 on 1 conversation & eye contact. That's another problem I had. My sarcasm was misinterpreted until Gramz convinced me to use emotion symbols on this site. No more sarcasm mishaps. Thanks Gramz!
I have nice interactions with SG & I enjoy reading his posts. He listens to me & I listen to him because we have mutual respect for 1 another. If I said something critical of Tom Brady, he might politely ask me why I feel that way, but he won't slam me outright, because we respect each other's viewpoint & we are free to disagree & still be respectful toward each other.
Again JMO. Thank you for listening.
