Just getting too much to handle anymore. To all the logical posters, and there are quite a few on here, thank you for the great insight that you have provided. This website is great, but a lot of people have brought it down of late. So Go Phins! Good luck Finheaven! See you all at the Super Bowl in the near future :) I'm out

Hate to see this happen but it seems we are losing more and more good logical respectable posters. Is there any way we can change this other than a premium membership?

I would guess not. Just tough to keep some people out and too frustrating to try to put up with anymore.

Unfortunately it's true. As the months have passed it has gotten progressively worse. It used to be just a few young kids and some fans of other teams but now I'm not sure what is the problem.

I'm not where you are yet, but I am getting there. Some fans on this site make me sick.

All I know is I won't be driven away from here b/c of negativity. You need to just let that stuff go. The true Dolfans will be here when the dust settles.

Some people seem to just be in bad moods everyday and can't find positive in anything. There was a time I would come here and walk away with something other than the frustration that I've been walking away with of late.

Count me out also. I can stand to read anything on here anymore. I dont understand how some of the people post what they do. Everything between lets move Jason Taylor to QB to Ronnie is a Bust or to lets Lets Start Berlin. Not to mention all the negitivety thrown at every aspect of out football team. For now, good-bye.

my guess would be the popularity of this site has attracted these fairweathered fans, it sucks but its just something we've got to deal with.
hopefully we'll see u around when we win

Best way to deal with the negative and/or just foolish posters is the same way to deal with a child throwing a tantrum- ignore them! Instead, every time some foolish or negative thread gets started or posted, everybody else has to respond, keeping the thread alive and on the front page. If all the "reasonable" posters would simply ignore and not respond to the idiotic posters, and only responded to and contributed to meaningful, intelligent debates, the problem would take care of itself. If you feel the need to respond to every stupid post and it gets you down, Bye. You're not going to get anywhere arguing with these people, you're just keeping their threads alive over other more intelligent discussions.

You are completely right, I lived in Florida for 7 years only about 15 miles from the stadium and their is not a group of more fickle fans than what the dolphins have. I guess they all recently got computers and found Finheaven.:)

I would say don't let it discourage you, just realize the idiots for what they are and know your right.

THe Phins have some of the best fans, but at the same time some of the worst. Probably all the, and don't take this the wrong way, but New Yorker and Bostoners that are snowbirds in South Florida, that claim to be fans but put their northeaster negative spin on everything. Some of them actually mean well, they just don't know how to look at the bright side of things.

I echo your thoughts. At the beginning of this year I was averaging almost 20 posts per day. After the draft, it seems the quality on the main board went down and I havent posted as much at all anymore. Increased popularity isnt always grand.

After watching Ronnie in college and now in the pros, I really don't think Ronnie will ever be an elite runner in this league. If you watched him much in college you would see that Ronnie never really had elite skills
You call yourself a logical poster with that crap thread you posted about Ronnie after watching 2 NFL games on him, and not considering the fact that missing training camp was a big factor in his development.

wow, man. I just saw your thread on Ronnie brown and I think you were spot on. I know exactly why you are upset. Complete morons that obviously didn't even read your post or didn't have the comprehensive ability to understand that it was if nothing else complimenting Brown's many skills responded with complete angst and pre-judgement. If the mods don't do something about those posters I think I may be right behind you because their is no room for that crap here.

Don't know why people do this on message boards but for anything more than attention.

I didn't post in his Ronnie Brown thread but I strongly disagree...How can he predict that Ronnie Brown won't be an elite runner in this league after just 2 NFL games. Yeah Yeah, he said he was a good blocker etc...
You can call me a moron, it's fine with me, but at least I make sense.
Wait till half the season to start the critics on his salary and skills.

I'm very upset myself because this thread should not have been started in the first place after 2 NFL games mostly when the poster calls himself a logical one.

So many factors are involved here and even Saban said that the O-Line was not opening holes. Ronnie Brown is not Superman...

Ronnie brown might be an elite runner, he may not be it doesn't matter. The point is the way his thread was responded to was completely moronic. He is not making a prediction he is making a comparison and a pretty good one at that. regardless of weather you agree with his point of view or not their are classier ways to voice an apposing view. :cool: If you didn't make a moronic post than I'm not refering to you.

My point is simply that he made a good point whether you agree with it or not and a few people argued one out of context point of his post and were vulgar. their is no need for that here and if you are condoning that than you are as bad as them. If you agree that vulgarity has no place here and you never go off half cocked after reading only a portion of a post than nothing I have said regarding this is directed at you and I apologize if I offended you.

This is a cycle. The bad fans and young kids will move on eventually and the quality of posts will improve. I think you get a monkey effect sometimes, someone posts angry and then someone replies angry and then someone sees angry response and replies to support that opinion then someone posts even more angrier towards the post prior, off off topic and nothing but vicious spite.

It happens. It happens on all the boards on all the web sites, some more then others. You just need to ignore it, skip over it, move on to the next thread. It's a shame to have to commit board suicide but to get your point across, you do what you feel it right.

Meantime, I have to cheer for the fins and discuss everything Miami.

Leaving a message board because you can't handle someone else's opinion (no matter how off the wall it may be) is absolutely ridiculous.

Two things, use the ignore feature, esp. on repeat offenders, and two, there are a lot more forums here than just the main one, try a few of them on for size.

the ignore feature works very well. message boards , esp. free boards , will always have problems, if you dont skip and filter you read a lot of junk... but sometimes you get cool insights, new information, and sometimes you laugh your a$$ off. its only a message board, im not here to make lifelong friends, just talk about the phins.
