In response to maxbialystock's comment:
Whoa, whoa, whoa. I am not talking about the 5 games series with the Rays which starts today. I'm talking about the zero excitement playoff games that were played between Tampa and Texas, Pittsburgh and Cincinatti, Tampa and Cleveland, Pittsburgh and St Louis, and LA and Atlanta. Not an ounce of excitement in any of them, which were all over by around the 3d inning.
I do expect the Sox and Rays to have tough, close, exciting games. Maybe too much so.
Well then, my bad. It's just a pet peeve of mine. I feel a Red Sox board, especially on Boston.com, where it shouldn't be able to annoy other fans like on other sites with multiple teams, you should able to be happy, ecstatic and over the moon without worrying about other teams' fans feeling "taunted". You should also be able to enjoy the rivalry and take shots at them if you feel like it. Again, without annoying rival teams' fans. IMO this site should be for Red Sox fans and whatever they're feeling.
There is a group, and you could be one of them, I don't know, who feels we're a dual board because of all the Yankee posters here. I'm fine with Yankee posters being here, but when they are in charge of what's acceptable for Red Sox fans on this site, then it's no longer a Red Sox site. That's not fair to Sox fans who come here, or would come here if it were different. It should be the furthest thing away from rival team fans. If they come here, they should know that everyone is posting their feelings here, and not on a Yankee board, which would be obnoxious IMO. Probably why I don't understand when some Yankee fans here say, "Well he said this first, so I said that." Their insults are from Yankee fans on a Sox board. Our comments are from Sox fans on a Sox board.
And NO comments about the Yankees, even negative, have anything to do with the fans, they are comments about a baseball team called the Yankees.
No need to respond (not that I thought you would). I explained this a number of times to no avail. So I guess I'll just say it again, if anyone is making negative posts about the Yankees, they are NOT meant to be negative comments about the Yankee fans. If anyone is making positive comments about the Sox -- even giddy with excitement -- they are not meant to "taunt" fans of the Yankees that may be here. And I would appreciate it if Yankee fans wouldn't make their negative comments about the Sox on a Sox board, and leave Sox posters alone who do make negative comments about the Yankees on a Sox board. They're sharing their feelings about their team and their rival on a board that was created for the fans of the Red Sox.
