I have read a bunch of comments and posts lately where Rumblers have been arguing back and forth over how we as fans should be acting. Some think that we should be super positive and support the team through think and thin regardless of the outcome. Others are far more cynical, most likely jaded from the past decade plus of sub-par football and questionable personnel decisions. Here is the thing:
We are all Bills fans and in the end we all want the same thing.
So why are we fighting with each other? I get that the years of losing have caused plenty of frustration but we need to get past all that and treat each other a little better. Stop with personnel attacks, stop taking your frustrations out on other Rumblers and if you disagree with a point somebody makes, try to disprove them with facts that back up your opposing opinion.
I have been guilty of this myself. I have been very critical of others when they "act negative" about the goings on at One Bills Drive. But I now realize that not only does everyone have a right to follow the team however they want, but just because they are expressing their frustration differently doesn't make them less of a fan. I think that we all need to start behaving better and I will take the first step towards that and hopefully others will follow here:
Port Royal; You and I have had plenty of disagreements in the past right along these same lines. You are far more jaded about the team then I am, but that in no way makes you less of a fan or means that you care less then I do. The unhappiness that you seem to have with the team is well earned. This team has done nothing but make bad draft picks, poor free agent signings and even handled the front office changes amateurishly. While we both get frustrated you handle it differently then I do, and that should be okay. I have made it a problem. For that I apologize.
My hope is that if I can say I am sorry to Port Royal and that he and I can act more civilly with each other, then the rest of this community can also.
Time to suck it up Rumblers and act more like adults and deal with each other better, because it is getting out of hand.
