    Some people are reactionary fans and some people are not. Reactionary fans were the reasons game threads were created. Prevents us from clogging up the message board.

    The most shocking thing to me is we don't see it happen even more frequently. Thank God.

    He's giving more of a radio broadcast than one for tv. When him and Chris were going back and forth, the difference was amazing. It's crazy to think how much a broadcaster influences your experience watching the game. I know a lot of people aren't too high on thom, but personally, I think thom and chris are really awesome. i've listened to a lot of other feeds, and i gotta say, we're really lucky

    Were they? You've said this multiple times now, and far as I know, it's a reason you've completely made up yourself.

    Arent game threads supposed to be full of emotion just like if you are setting in the stands?

    I love arguing on here with some of the haters, only problem was no one else liked it and i constantly got in trouble from the mods.

    I don't mean to put down all Sun Deck transplants, I've found myself enjoying contributions from many new faces. But I really do think Redszone is about as good as it gets for baseball discussion and it bums me out when Yahoo/Reds.com level comments constantly pop up in the ORG or Game Threads.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Eventually you'll learn that frustration and questioning the manager and team makes you a bad poster.

    Baseball has been very lucky in that regard. I just don't see pitchers being effective with a guard on their face. Just comes with the territory I guess!

    Yes, they were. Try reading a message board when people are creating ten new threads a minute. Pretty tough to read.

    I'm predicting a Reds comeback win tonight.

    Homer's settled down, and Medlen isn't fooling anyone.

    Frustration =/= "this team is really hard to like"
