There have been some new trolls lately that have really tainted the place. The ignore feature does help, but doesn't solve the entire problem. They are never going to get rid of trolls, it's not the OM way. The freedom we enjoy here is going to lead to trolls, but I prefer the freedom over tighter modding

If I had my druthers, I would first point out that finally I know what a druther is and show it to those around me to inspect and appreciate. And then I would get a little more strict with keeping the trolls back and also the personal attacks. I think this place gets lame when we start eating each other. It's not fun.

That's the real problem. Broncos fans are e-fighting other Broncos fans, after a disappointing loss. People are stabbing each other, in the parking lot. The opposing fan trolls can be ignored. They are irrelevant...

TJ outlined the rules, for the OM. I think the mods are erring on the side of caution, unless a specific rule is broken. There is no rule against just being a dumb opposing fan...

anyone expressing an alternate opinion is considered a troll. If a troll is fishing for a response, peolpe who RESENT an alternate view are alway going to satisfy a troll.
The personal attacks just tell a real troll they got one on the line.

Now if you're talking about a "lives under the bridge troll" just ask them the air speed of an unlaiden swallow, that should do it.

after a loss unhappy people will vent, isnt that what most of us did?
and apposing fans will show up to gloat, very immature, but we must have members that go to opponent sites and do the same senseless immature things.
sadly, the most thin skinned easily 'trolled' members have me on ignore and are therefore beyond my reach and beyond hope.
sad, ironic and pretty darn funny actually.

I think it was more than just one game. That was a 6th seed quality team coming to Denver and showing the rest of the NFL how to beat them. Sorry, but if they can't win that game they aren't winning a divisional round. The defense and special teams just aren't good enough to do that. When the offense can't carry the team and score over 30 they cannot overcome their deficiencies if the other team is not making mistakes and unforced errors. How many games would be lost had the offense not played lights out? Or teams didnt make mistakes like the one Romo did?

Just don't see it this year when the team is so far unbalanced. Great offense. The rest, including coaching(12 men a result of so many rotations IMO), not so much.

That's untrue. I think, in general, people on here are open to anti-Bronco or unpopular opinion.

You are a troll because you keep posting the same **** over and over, many times in threads that are unrelated to your bull**** agenda.

We've heard this many times before.

Again, week fifteen last year we beat the Ravens into submission. They went on to win the super bowl. We have to improve and play better, but this "blueprint" **** is BS

Personally, I like the balance that comes from having lots of different opinions.

Keeps everyone on their toes and keeps some of the rampant homerism in check, too.

Its not the difference in opinion that bothers people, its the delivery of said opinion. I dont know how people dont realize that. If you fill threads with conspiracy theory BS like Luigi, youre gonna get **** for it. If you start multiple hate threads and then call people fanboys like Wolf, youre gonna get ****. If you're KCstud/Bob and talk annoying **** for the sake of getting a rise, you're gonna get a reaction out of people. If you start posts with "i said it all along!" you're gonna get a natural devil's advocate reaction out of others.

What I have noticed is that A LOT of homers on the site immediately resort to F-bombs and S-bombs the moment they read something they don't like.

You may not agree with everything I write, but at least I don't drop F-bombs or make personal attacks like some of the clowns on this site.

This is what I'm talking about. Dude, can you possibly make a post that isn't littered with asterisks? Apparently not.
