This is a strange topic.
So really, the chicken little in this scenario is you.
So, yes, responding to a very small minority of pessimistic posters as if they are the majority makes you the Chicken Little in this scenario. "AHHH! All the pesssimists and negativity! AHH! The morale is falling! The morale is falling!" Derp.
i am an eternal optimist and i can honestly say this is the most positive response to an off season since Tuna and the boys showed up 5 years ago. There are two or three habitual na sayers but several that where negative are happy that we have a QB and seem to like Philbin. i could name names but i wont.
Right not there is some dread over the failure in the legislature and the possible move scenarios but that should pass soon.
I see your are a VIP member. i don't recall anything negative there what so ever lately. Come to the lounge where everyone is just having fun.
Just my two cents for what it's worth.
p.s. I used to ski Breckenridge and Loveland every winter. A good bud lives in Boulder and I love it there.What's the night course there ?
El Dora or something like that. It's a blast.
We can drop this because as we all should know, you are rarely wrong. Let's just agree to disagree. You seem to feel that all is happy and I feel that the board could be a little more positive. Now, I do not advocate that anyone should start packing for the Super Bowl as of yet based on our off season movements. Those moves when combined with the current philosophies & direction of the team do give me reason to believe our chances for success are pretty good for the upcoming season. Once again, CL does not live here....

Eldora is up in Nederland which is near Boulder. The City of Boulder is an awesome place. My efforts to get my family to move there have been ongoing for many years but thus far I have been on the losing end of the vote. It's such a laid back place....

As for the overall tone, that's complete bull****. But you go ahead and search out the negativity, as you clearly want to find it. Polls are generally a good judge and negative nancies tend to enjoy responding to them most of all. The problem is, there aren't as many as before because the team is finally heading in the right direction (it absolutely deserved "negativity" over the past few years). And of course you're going to disregard things like polls because they don't jive with your claims.
Sure, there are unanswered questions about the team and places we can still improve, but that's hardly "negative." That's just fact. We could be competing for a championship and there would still be room for improvement. That's just the way some go through life though, constantly looking for ways to improve and move to the next level (like myself) while others are perfectly happy with their lot in life and have no interest in improving. The mentalities tends to extend to everything, including their favorite teams. There's nothing negative about the former outlook. In fact, I'd say that's the ultimate optimist, thinking there is always a way to become better.

On the contrary, I do NOT get it! You are wrong at times and much more frequently that rarely! But of course, you would never admit that. As for your complete bull**** theory, I know what I have been reading. I also know the difference between fact and negativity. How about this. You just do you and I'll do me. Deal? Or, not. Could really care less....
