Well TJ, I can tell you that I've exchanged PM's with at least 2 members who have given this reason to me, and another 2 who have indicated that through mutual friends I have here. They have asked me not to mention who they are and I will have to respect that.
Regardless, TJ, you have to know I'm not the only person who feels that way.

I disagree. They may not be the royal d-bags we see on other forums, but they still cause problems here. Look how many legitimate discussions will get derailed because some troll with throw in some smack and then our fans get fired up and it all degenerates from there.
I think what it is, with the seasons the Broncos have had over the last several years, we just don't want to hear what fans from other teams have to say. Sometimes the truth hurts.
I can count one hand the number of decent posters we have from other teams.
- Crazyhorse (post medical issues, God bless him)
- ROYC (for the most part)
- A Raiders fan whose user name I can't recall off hand
Beyond that, what other fans do we have here that aren't trolling? Just about every Charger fan we have either A) joined during or after 2006 or B) had joined before 2006 but never posted until 2006.
I can handle members that our fans of other teams just fine, provided they don't try to derail our threads with smack talk. Hell, I would be fine with the smack too, provided it was kept seperate like the WRP room. Then I could avoid it or participate depending on my mood.
