In response to postal5's comment:
Who are the Klowns? Inside joke?
Apparently, you have not been reading many of the abundant "Rondo threads" found on BDC.
Allow me to summarize things for you. BDC, specifically OTFB, has two groups of people consistently initiating and posting to threads concerning the Boston Celtic PG Rajon Rondo. One group is widely known as the "Rondo Haters", although, if you were to ask them, they would describe themselves as "Rondo Realists." At various times, they have called Rondo a cancer, a virus, petulant, a baby, rondon't, etc.The other group is referred to as "Rondo Lovers", althouugh, if you were to ask them, they would also describe themselves as "Rondo Realists." Descriptive words they have used with Rondo include, playoff triple doubles, all-star, future HOF, cerebral, most talented Celtic, etc.
Since referring to each group by the same name would confuse things, I will call them, for clarities sake, by the names they do not prefer.
When puddinpuddin, aka pud, was referring to the "klowns", it was a "Rondo Hater" deriding "Rondo Lovers" en masse. This is generally known as a "putdown" or "insult".
I hope this answers your question.
