The invention of the SunDeck supposedly helps this out a bit.
But, after reading a lot of the Old Red Guard posts about EE, it seems like the Old Red Guard could have a further split.
A wise man once said, if you want to discuss something with the masses, it's better to say little or nothing at all. Wait until there are fewer people around who can understand you better.
If you're looking to make sense about something, a "forum" isn't the place to do it.
For me, there's great information to be found here about the Minor Leagues of the REDS, the MLB Draft, and the REDS' players themselves....and the organization, too.
But, as far as discussing what's good for the team/organization or what's bad for the team/organization it's impossible. It's just not possible to have a discussion where logic and reason get used to support opinions. And, when logic and reason are used, there's little acceptance of facts and more ignoring of them because for some reason, it's not OK to be "wrong" about anything.
It's not about being "wrong". Nobody cares if someone is "wrong". It's just about getting correct information out there.
You can't have a bar discussion here because of the rules. That's OK, too.
The best discussions seem to get done in private chats, kind of when you're at a baseball game and you're just talking to the person next to you, before some nosy buddy butts in from 3 rows back and 5 seats over.
One problem I have though, is I have to wonder if the fans who go to REDS games in Cincinnati are similar to those that post here.
Are the ideas of fans that come to this board representative of the ideas of fans who attend the games in Cincinnati? Is the balance of knowledge the same?
Not being from Cincinnati, I try to get a feel about the REDS' fans IN Cincinnati. I am really curious if what I see here is a close sample of what it is in Cincinnati.
