    Now exactly why is it so offensive for a poster, say from old Miss, to be an Eli fan and now a Giants fan who really likes Eli? Heck...a fan who only watches because of Eli?
    It's not offensive. It's just annoying for a poster who follows the Giants, to pretend that his opinion is not biased to his favorite player X, and that everything he thinks is catered to the best interest of the team. It's beyond their comprehension that Eli is our QB through and through. That we will always hope Eli does amazing as long as he's the Giants QB. Because as soon as "they" hear criticism of Player X, in this case Eli, they automatically think from a Player fan point of view and not a team fan points of few. And because of that, all they see is venom and "hate".

    As someone who is from the fan boy side of a different player and a different sport, we can be pretty damn annoying.

    Edit: As far as I'm concerned, talking about Eli doesn't need to be anymore drawn out than talking about Cruz. Cruz has been criticized also with some taking more offense than others. But it never escalated to anything close to what Eli threads get to. With Eli it gets personal. With Cruz, it really is about team.

      • OK, this whole "Eli is our QB" thing..

        Is that the only reason you like him? Because he's a Giant? Do you actually like or respect his game?
        Mood: WOOF!

                I would, if I knew people would try to read and understand what I'm writing instead of reacting to certain reflex words. People see, "Brees, Rodgers, Inconsistent, Interceptions, skittish, etc." and all of a sudden their brain goes on fire.

                  Have you asked the Mods to allow you not to read those threads/posts?

                  Maybe you could modify the TOS so that you don't legally have to respond?

                  Just a thought.

                    What makes you think I want to ignore them? It's annoying but it's far more fun to partake in the entertainment.

                            Whenever there is a Tebow thread on espn.com, have you ever read the 5 billion comments underneath each article? Priceless entertainment.

                              Nope, because there are some knuckleheads that will read it the wrong way. Then, I have to waste time to try and explain to them what I actually said. Which actually won't do any good because they won't believe it anyway.

                                I haven't notice you getting into it is a personal way ...but it gets personal or it seems, pretty quick with some here which leads to threads getting closed.....some chase each other around just to take shots and such.....or it appears....Idk
