I DID extend an olive branch, which you ignored. Should we start anew? Absolutely. But YOU told trinity that I was unfair in my polls. You said things that are not true. And I did not say the poll was new to the internet, as you implied. I said it was my idea on DBR, and I also explained why I did it, so people could post without retaliation. You failed to mention that, as it was people like you I was trying to avoid. Many people liked my poll, as you are well aware. Why? Because they were not criticized and targeted. Finally there was a place to express views without having to hide from the barrage that was coming. I know you read what people said. Do you not care how they felt? I DID.
As far as sarcasm, issues between you and I resulted ONLY because of your repeated use of it and intended intimidation of others. I have referenced this on numerous occasions. As a result, and as anticipated, you took a dislike to me. Which is ok. I knew you wouldn't like me taking up for others. It was clear what your response would be beforehand.
You do make a good point about the efforts of the DBR staff to improve the site. And actually, I have agreed with some of the things you have said in hte past, although not frequently. And, believe it or not, some people have actually made points contrary to my thinking that have opened my eyes on occasion. As opposed to bashing them, I like to empathize and consider their points. I wonder, without sarcasm as I mean this, have you considered such an approach?
All that being said, I WILL forget all this, and move on. While we don't like each other, we do love DUKE. At least I do. And I love our coaching staff. I have told Coach Dawkins TWICE on the radio show I feel they have done a GREAT job with this young team. Do I like everything they do? Of course not. YOU know I want MP to get more PT. Yet I think they are the best staff in America, if not the entire world. You see Jumbo, just because I don't agree with EVERY thing someone says or does, doesn't mean I don't like/admire/respect them. I can. Try it sometime, you just might feel good about yourself
