I used to come to Finheaven when I first joined and the conversations were so football deep and interesting. I used to actually learn things on here. Now...... All I hear is bull crap complaints and whining to no end.
Why are there so many frustrated Dolphin fans on here?

No matter what I have never insulted one of our players or coaches no matter what!! I have stood by them through the losses and through the Jay Fiedler days. The only advise I have for people who are bummed out about our qb, well just go and watch some other games. You will notice that it is really not any greener on the other side of the fence!!!

We just won a game against a team and a stadium which is the toughest to play in or at least one of them. True it was a little ugly but man we won.

So take it easy and enough with the negativity. I believe that we deserved this win and I for sure will be enjoying the ride for the next few months.

Yea I completely agree......for example: Henne throws an int....then the boards blow up with posts of he shouldn't be the quarterback, bring in Chad Pennington, game over, etc.... It really is annoying as a Dolphin fan to enjoy a victory or talk about a loss when there is the little things people take and turn it into 20 other posts.

I think the discussions make it fun. Debate and don't read. As long as nobody is swearing or getting personal, who cares?

I agree, I come here very seldom now because of the negativity...what happened to the loyalty from our fans??.. we have a lot to be excited about... can you remember us ever having a receiver like Brandon Marshall? Ever? We are well on our way to being a serious contender...lets enjoy the ride!

C'mon dude...let's be honest now...they had just about all their impact players on Defense out today...and we STILL couldn't put up 30pts...

It really feels like a lot of fans on this site are waiting for bad things to happen so they can say "I told you so...". I just read more than post now b/c of all the negative drama on this site. There is tooooo many fair weather fans on here. But it is not like it is any better on another site.

I even saw a post about how the Dolphins just lost this game vs. the Packers before overtime was finished..lol. I bet there were multiple post ready to hit "reply button" ready, but they waited till it happened...oh wait DID NOT HAPPEN.

Yeah the Packers have a lot of injuries. Their offense still had every major weapon and their defense had some guys playing that used to start for them. One of which is best vs. the run (Hawk). We played on the road vs. a very tough team and fans on here act like we should have won by 50 points...lol.

We just have a lot of wish-wash fans that like to be negative. Oh well...

What's nuts is some clown started a thread conceding defeat before the game was even over.

Between the OCD HenneRainmen, the 808Pennyfanboys, the Ryanfellators and the generally hard-wired Negative Nellies.. how many of them do you think are actually pleased that:

a)we won and
b) Henne's game stats were either comparable or compared favorably to the "franchise" QBs they routinely hold up as benchmarks
???

I think in all honesty that I dont see the pats or jets as better teams . we were a couple of plays behind the jets in the game , today we saw that they can be beat . they just make one or two plays more , they win close games , that`s the only difference being focused . stop complaining lets talk football

negativity is the effect of having nothing to show for the last 10 plus years of being a fan. We traded for the best back in football before 2002, where did that get us? 9-7... I'm a positive guy, but for most fans, after years of being positive, the last decade of searching for a qb, and failing to post back to back winning seasons since... 2003? we've had little to cheer about and less to be positive about. and just when people find something to be positive about, it all gets ripped out from underneath us.

It's gotten pretty ridiculous and annoying. Opinionated discussions are one thing, negativity and ignorance is another. As I posted in another thread: There are fans and then there are followers, and I really wish the followers would find somewhere else to hang out.

I swear to god....I'm glad this site (and the internet) didn't exist during the undefeated season. I would hate to see tha amount of bitchin that would be going one because of one thing or another!

Funny, I got a warning for saying the same thing last week from Possum.

It isn't the negativity that bothers me, it is the the fact that there is little value to be had here anymore. I havn't had an interest in any thread in over a month.


I think me (and the other Mods as well) need to clean this board up.


Agreed.

Every single week there are more threads bitching about people bitching then there are actually people bitching about the team.

Another anti negativity thread that is well negative. Funny how we all at some point become what we hate. Get over it my friend. If you start to read something you don't like...hit the back arrow. No harm no foul.

As far as Mods cleaning up the boards? What a joke...your "paper badge" can't and should not be used to scare people away from sharing their opinions, right or wrong, negative or not, ignorant or not. It's a message board...it is what it is.

Fins Up!

I guess you are right to a certain extent. However, I just hate fair weather fans.

I guess you are right to a certain extent. However, I just hate fair weather fans.I don't think that term applies to the members who are unleashing most of the negative comments. fair-weather would imply they would be cheering the team after a win, not trashing a QB who outperformed nearly ever other QB in the league on his way to a win.

Exactly! You get the distinct impression that some so-called "fans" would rather have their OCD-like criticisms proven right than for the team to win and be proven wrong.

It's a message board, and people are going to have their opinions. Will they all be popular ideas? No, but that's the best part of a message board. If you disagree with someone, explain why you disagree with them, use stats, etc.

We're not going to start banning people/issuing warnings and infractions for calling players and coaches names. This is a site for all fans to vent, whether they be in the right or the wrong.

Here is a suggestion, give the negative nellies their own forum subsection. Call it Doom and Gloom. Hell give them their own live chat. Misery does love company.

I honestly think alot of these negative fans deep down inside want us to lose so they have something to complain about.Not only is hard for me to swallow that we have gotten so negative over here but also on the gang green forums when someone goes on a negative rant they tell them to keep quite this aint FinHeaven.That is what I find most disturbing is we are starting to get a reputation as being a negative fan site.

I couldn't agree more. I too remember a time when this board was full of intellectual football discussion. All those fans went to another board where I spend most of my time nowadays because it's gotten quite pathetic around here. It's the same posters bogging down this website. I actually feel bad for them, must live some ****ty lives to have to complain about everything.

I noticed the same thing over on TGG. Pretty sad it is. But you're absolutely right in that a lot of these so called fans want the team to lose or a certain player to fail so they can say I told you so.

then the negative nellies will request that postitive pollies get thier own subsection and the main board will have zero posts.

I think people take the interwebz way too seriously. Imagine how boring this site would be if we all agreed on major issues. I personally enjoy reading posts where there is heated debate. I dont think anyone wants to see the team fail, people are just people and see things different ways. Two people can see the same play and sincerely have different opinions on what exactly took place. Thats life. I cant imagine why anyone would want the board to be all positive or all negative.

Over on another board they have a Rants subforum. Would be a great idea to implement that here as well imo.
