[QUOTE]A lot of people cannot disagree without insulting the other person. It typically involves calling them "irrational, brainless, troll, kool-aid, homer, etcetera." The point being, of course, to cast their ability/objectivity as a judge into doubt. A little banter is ok. It can keep things lively. But people make too many dire personal attacks fro something that (in the end) doesn't really matter.

"Irrational" is a fine word and very appropos. No offense.
If you behave irrationally, then you are irrational.
Please don't make me list examples.
When we see people say "this team is finished", "time for BB to go", "trade Brady", "7-9 in 2010", "the defense stinks", "the secondary is playing bad", etc, etc, etc....
Yes, that is bordering on Dahmer territory. It's either a troll posing as a Pats fan or a wishful thinking troll fan of another team ruining a good thread.
Regardless, if you don't do your homework and want to play with the big boys, don't type.
This is beyond simple, folks.
