I've been a Pacers fan for well over 14 years now. I've seen the ups and I've experienced the downs. During this time period I've also spent pretty much all of it online in the forums, whether it was the R.A.T.S. board or here in the Digest.
Lately though its becoming harder and harder to go through the posts as frankly there is just too much over the top reaction to every single thing.
Yes we're all emotionally invested in this team. Yes, we want them to succeed. Yes, we want better basketball to be associated with INDIANA.
But can we please, take it down a notch? Why does everyone have to always go to the EXTREME end to make their point? There shouldn't have to be a "dark side" and a "light side" and you stick to your guns till the end.
If one does not open their minds and learn from the other side's P.O.V. then they'll forever be stuck in the same circle going round and round.
Its just sad to see people make one line comments that take everything out of context and continue to try to spin things to their way.
Yes, this is a discussion forum and more often than not, people will try to pursuade their thoughts as the right one. But that doesn't mean you have to go to the EXTREME to make your point.
In conclusion, no matter what happens, we're here for the same thing...which is to support INDIANA PACERS
