Thread: Fans

    Default Fans

    Pretty sure every single poster wants the Gophers to win big. The anger comes from the differences of opinion on what that even means and how to go about it. That is fine, it is the nature of a open forum. Really no big deal. The problem i have is the personal insults instead of a actual take on the program. There is not a standard of who is a better fan. Just because people are born and or live here and post only great opinions of the team and the coach does not make them a better fan than someone who cites facts, shares insights and observations and watches with a critical eye. We all want this to be a great program.

    It's fine to be critical on a message board - I have that reputation myself on the basketball board.

    The problem people have with you is that you elevate and discuss Tony Bennett and Wisky basketball non-stop on a Gopher basketball board. Do you see why people may be annoyed by that?

    No anger. Pointing out your inconsistencies as well as the backstabbing you do of RP. And your nonstop love of programs other than the MN Gophers.

    No need for it, you say you dont do it, and your posts prove otherwise.

    I, for one, will continue to point out your inconsistencies and any unnecessary stabs in the back of Pitino.

    I dont know if RP will ever win big here, and I am nearing the end of supporting him as well. Results are what matters to me.

    Many of the posters here agree with man yof your takes, for the most part (guessing) however you assaults of RP will not be tolerated.

    "builtbadgers" not necessarily endearing on Gopher msg board. No matter how much of a fan one claims to be, face it there are going to be skeptics about motives.

    Built, you simply need to remove the Badger part from your name. Minnesota fans are conditioned to hate anything associated with certain words:

    Wisconsin
    Iowa
    Badger
    Hawkeye
    Wolverines
    Gard
    BadgerBob
    Kohl Center
    Jump around
    Pink
    Sioux
    Packers
    Cheese
    Green Bay
    etc.....

    So you see, it has nothing to do with you. Your a good person and an informed poster if you have to associate yourself with a Wisconsin sports team may I suggest the Brewers. We will never have any animosity for a team that celebrates home runs by having an individual take a bath in beer! (or don't they do that anymore?)

    Assaults would be a personal type comment. My comments are about how he goes about his business , what he teaches, how he teaches and how often we lose. I also point out what i think he has done well. Opinions. Iam not back stabbing him. He is not facing forward or backward on a message board. He is paid huge dollars at a public university to run a clean program and win big. When coaches do not do that they get fired. Criticism comes with the territory. So does praise.

    Your probably right. Iam not from either state so the Brewer thing is out. I am from Carmel California and my alma is UCLA but we keep a lake home here and i follow several programs. This is a program i care about, just get sick and tired of losing.

    What you say and how you say it have more bearing, the last person banned was named Gopher4Life but felt pretty trollish to me.

    I find that some hate my takes, some support them. Makes no difference to me. They are simply my opinion.

    Hogwash.

    Admit you take shots at RP frequently, unwarranted.

    I've told you this before, I enjoy your contribute, but your love of Wi/Bennets is tiring. You don't need consistently remind us that we're behind Wisconsin. You don't need to consistently remind use you love Bennet and Gard, we know you do. Past 2 decades, I put Bo Ryan behind only Tom Izzo (Izzo has won more tourney games then Bo was even in) in B1G. I think Gard will do fine at Wisconsin (Maintaining/improving on Bo's legacy, not so sure). But it's simply tiring

    I would be happy with Wisconsin's success, but I would prefer to be Mi State......

    Yes, running pack line D and swing offense works for Wi. Can we emulate that? I don't know. I would agree we need pick system, recruit to it. We're not going to be one and done school

    He won't. He comes on here to show off his connections, which I would welcome if he wasnt a fraud about his allegiances.

    How do we decide who has the correct "allegiances"? I don't always agree with his standards but I don't doubt his allegiances to this program and others. If we kicked everybody off this board that was critical (even unfairly at times) this would be a lonely place.
    Winasota Gopher now takes me seriously.....you should too.

    That is what you have is a personal judgement of me or name calling. Here to exchange ideas and opinions on the team,the program and the coach. If you hate what i write, why read it ?
