    This fight is boring. When do they move on to the "Jello" stage?

      What relevance do you think no one else publicly stating they thought it was serious has on anything? Just because no one came out and questioned it publicly doesn't mean everyone took it as a joke or sarcasm, as I said most probably couldn't care less.

      I'm not sure why I should have to, given I'm not accusing you of being serious now you've made it clear it was an attempt at sarcasm. If it was serious of course it would be an attempt at getting a reaction - as I said it's a classic troll post designed to start an argument, so classic in fact it has even when it wasn't serious! lol

      you're still the only moron who has decided that it was a completely serious response. no one whose opinion has any value has agreed with you. stop trying to state that that was the case as if it's somehow more factual every time you say it.
      Um, it is factual for me - I took it as serious, and I think anyone with a level head can see it was clearly not an obviously sarcastic post. I've still yet to hear how it was obviously sarcastic, and "common sense" doesn't cover it I'm afraid. Common sense suggests to me you posting that message when quoting someone saying something positive about VY means you were trying to agitate the person you were quoting, I still don't understand how you were meaning to use sarcasm or the point of it.

      it's called common sense. not that tough. failing that, you might have tried not screaming "troll" at the first opportunity. but yeah, i'm sure scott would kill to have a grade A troll as a mod. i'm sure ward would put up with it. i think we're getting back into common sense territory.
      Well, he sure has a mod that likes to insult his readers. Call me crazy, but as a mod I think you should be a little more reluctant to fuel an argument of this nature. As I said, if you realized I had interpreted it as serious and simply made it clear it was an attempt at sarcasm, it'd be over. Instead you seem hell bent on stating your own facts that it was definitely clearly 100% sarcasm, which is definitely clearly 100% wasn't.

      the fact that you are incapable of distinguishing sarcasm and honest opinion does not mean the full burden of your inability to maybe, you know, look into it before posting a knee jerk response does not place the burden on me. no one put a bloody gun to your head and told you to reply before you had any idea what you were talking about. again, you're the guy who failed to see what every user after you was able to see. why should i have to cater to the lowest common denominator on this board? if you don't understand my posts, don't bloody reply to them.
      There are many reasons why people may not take up issue with it other than presuming it was sarcasm. Again, I still would like a clear reason why it should be, without a shadow of a doubt, considered obvious sarcasm. As I said, I've met plenty of people with that opinion on VY who would post such a thing to try and start a flame war. Give me one good reason why what you posted couldn't be taken as a serious post - I've seen plenty like it before.

      *yawn* someone else whining about the fact that i don't capitalize words. wow. the point was not my typos. the point was that you called me out (originally, YOU called ME out) for a lack of ability to use an english language you clearly have less than no mastery over. in your next post, you use terrible phrasing and sentence structure to convey ideas that could've and should've been expressed far more simply. let's not turn this into a conversation about english. your high school diploma and spell check will not hold up nearly as well as you think they will.
      If you don't want to turn it into a conversation about English, don't bring up irrelevant misspellings of a word then. My qualm with your use of English was a questionable use of sarcasm that seemed to have no place with what you were quoting and a lacking of any real measures to make sure the message was obviously sarcasm. You need to do more than read out what your typing to yourself in a sarcastic tone for Internet readers to know what you're trying to do.

      See above. My bringing up of English was relevant to the reasonings as to why I thought you were being serious, yours have so far been petty attempts at insults.

      because i would expect you to, you know, THINK about it before replying. if i wrote something about cutler and sarf responded with "he's worthless." i would know he was kidding. if random fan x with more than 5 posts on the board said the same thing, i would try to figure out where they were coming from first. it's just not that hard to "view all posts by..." and if you're too lazy to spend those 5 seconds, you probably shouldn't spend them posting a BS response.
      Maybe you would know he was kidding because you know him as a poster? Maybe because "he's worthless" is so generic and basic it would have to be the lamest argument ever if he was serious. VY as a WR is a touchy subject that shows a direct specified attack at a player (if it were serious). It's not quite as random.

      Because due to your lazy use of sarcasm, I was led to believe you were being serious. I didn't call you a horrible excuse for a human being and a moron or whatever, I called you a troll because I thought you were serious, and anyone without a significant degree of knowledge of your posts (like myself) could easy be forgiven for thinking so. Now that I know you weren't serious, my troll insult is not sincere at all, obviously. If the roles were reversed, I would have acknowledge that maybe - just maybe - my post was a little vague in intention and simply made it clear you misunderstood it. I wouldn't have lashed out in retaliation with random name calling as I would have realized you were only calling me a troll because you thought I was serious, and that clearing the matter up would have reversed that judgment.

      I've already stated I could have been a little more weary of the fact it might have been sarcasm, but that really shouldn't change your response - you acted as if I insulted you severely and I fail to see how being called a troll when it was a simple misunderstanding is insulting. A simple "I was being sarcastic dude" would have sufficed. Obviously, you didn't have to take the high road and you clearly didn't, but all I'm saying is, my original insult was based on what you said being serious and it wasn't, and the fact I took it seriously isn't entirely my fault no matter how you want to look at it.

      where, exactly, did i take offense? and this conflict was FAR from a knee jerk reaction.
      Erm, the 1st reply of yours after my troll comment where you quickly made sure to call me stupid?


      Originally posted by njx9
      no, you people are looking for it. if i disagree, suddenly some moron feels it has to be a 45 page discussion. i, being the kind, generous person that i am, feel that you should be educated. some people take offense to being wrong and feel obligated to continue discussions long past where they were useful. *shrug* stop projecting your feelings onto me.

      two things in all of this seem clear:

      1) you've never read any of my posts, thus the final sentence is a complete lie you just made up because it seemed insightful and like it proved your point.

      2) you've read some of my posts and thus not believeing it was sarcasm makes this entire discussion even worse and clearly points a big index finger right at the common sense center of your brain.

      they are mutually exclusive and one of them must be true. which is it?
      It is 2), although with a more realistic twist. I've read some of your posts, likely an amount of posts in line with what an occasional poster like myself would have read of a regular poster, and I've concluded you seem to get in a lot of arguments, but not enough to actually pick up on your traits. Thanks to this lovely little incident, I now know you like to reply to posts with unusual sarcasm. I still don't know why you were even being sarcastic to the post you quoted, it still doesn't seem to relate to what the OP stated at all. It makes MUCH more sense if you were being serious however. It comes off as a specific attack on VY for an issue that only really affects him and a handful of other QB's. It doesn't seem to me like a random off the wall joking post.

      Anyway, I apologize for reading too much into your statement and retaliating strongly to it without inquiring whether it was serious first, but there is no way what you posted is clearly sarcasm, particularly to a more casual poster as myself. It isn't realistic to presume everyone knows your personality when posting and knows when you're joking without language and visual aids like smilies, even if you do have 10K+ posts, so there was no need to fly off the handle and start the "stupid" etc tag because I misinterpreted a vague post of yours.

          njx9's MO is do as I say, not as I do. One of the biggest hypocrits on this board.

          He likes to insults posters right and left and say this player sucks because he sucks despite that player leading a team to beyond expectations.
          But when the tables is turned on him, and someone doesn't like his favorite players , he comes in and starts to whine. Just start a negative thread about Eli, either of the Vicks, or Moss and see what happens. Just like a school girl who does when a boyband is dissed.

            The word is hypocrites. The saying is "left and right", not "right and left."

            "Tables is turned on him" doesn't make sense, and neither does "...like a schoolgirl who does when a boyband is dissed."

                    Exactly. As a Broncos fan, you know he has to stick up for his boys; the QB of the Giants, the QB of the Falcons, a WR/Punt returner for the Dolphins, and a Raiders wide receiver. Makes perfect sense.

                      Well, it is obvious that all Bronco fans love the Raiders as well... just look at how much njx loves sarf!

                        It all depends on what you go by. If you go by pure passing yards, I will say Cutler, but if you want to go by excitement and playmaking ability I will say Vince Young. I expect a lot from last year's QB draft class though.

                            Or homosexuality.

                            Even when he mentions school girls, he manages to give off a homophobic vibe.
