[QUOTE]In Response to Re: So called fans and trolls under the Tobin : I'm not talking about your average fan who is frustrated with a game. These boards have new threads every day addressed to Rondo's play, reguardless of who else has an off or bad game. I don't say hate in the way your grandmother would understand the word. More of a basher, a hater, a stalker in some instances. In the way a Conservative hates a Democrat, or vice versa. People who have it in for someone no matter what. If you put a poll up for trading Rondo, how many of the posters here would click the 'yes' button? You know. I understand a fan can be frustrated or boo. I'm not young, or slow for that matter. I've watched Rondo in the past and wished Doc would take him out at that point in the game, yes, I get it. But people here are waaaay overboard. When I read this board I picture an angry mob with torches and pitchforks outside of the Garden looking for Rondo. It's annoying when you look for good basketball convo and all you find is a bunch of knee jerk reactions and trolls in the true form and in disguise ans Celtics' fans. I think you may have misunderstood my intentions with this post.

I understand what you mean now. Rondo has been a hot topic here for a while. Its my belief the constant bashing of him is met with an equal amount of support which some interpret as excuses.... Its like the unstoppable force meeting the imoveable object.. theres no give.... and therefore the debate rages on and escalates.
Sometimes it may get personal and appear the Rondo subject is being purposely injected into every thread as non stop bashing... I dont know, perhaps.
I think when Rondo puts a few good games together, 90% of it will go away...
I had posted a few days ago about when I was a kid... huge Celtic/Oakland Raider fan.. if a forum like this existed back then and the Raiders were playing like garbage, Id be all over this thing ripping whatever player it was that dropped 3 passes... Id want him kicked off the team and dunked in burning oil//
If youre a die hard fan and especially a young one... frustration can get the better of you. Venting helps, taking some shots at even your favorite player lets you blow off steam... and the very next game youre pulling for the same guy you trashed the week before.
Rondo will pick it up and the criticism will turn to accolades, like it always does. Just fans being fans, myself included... even the ones you feel have made bashing Rondo an agenda will back off too...
