    It's Early

    Those of you flipping out in the game thread, you know it's April 8, right?

    You know the team is averaging over six runs a game, right?

    Chill dudes.

    Guys that have hit in the past are going to hit this year.


    Take a deep breath. It's going to be ok.

    I've promised each and every one of you that this season is going to be a cake walk.

    I stand by that.

    Game threads bring out the football fan in too many people, it's more noise than substance, it's the brass band playing John Cage versions of Stephen Foster songs

    I just can't believe Frazier didn't cash in there in the 9th. How worrisome!

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Re: It's Early

    There was one or two negative posts in the game thread and people start freaking out over it. I think there are some posters looking to take shots at new ORG members whenever they can, even when there's no reason to. I'm not talking about you, Raisor, but I've definitely seen some of it. We're all Reds fans, so I don't see the need for some to have such an elitist attitude just because you were aware of this site before someone else may have been.

    One thing has been consistent on this site since day one.

    The game threads are reactionary and flammable.

    It has nothing to do with when it happens, who started it, how many posts they have, or how much they have their heads up to date on the latest and the greatest.

    Personally I avoid them 98% of the time, but make no mistake we all have been talking about them before the merge and we'll be talking about them down the road.

    I've been on message boards for a couple decades. Football, baseball, basketball, they're all the same. The game threads are like watching a game live with a bunch of your friends. I would think I was in some kind of bizarro world if I sat through a game with friends and there wasn't numerous kneejerk reaction comments made. It's the nature of sports fans.
