The problem is two fold. There are a large number of very loud trolls that just post to piss people off. They are Jet fans in name only that actively root against this team. The second issue is as a fanbase we have lost all patience and hope. With those going away it is not surprising to see reason and logic become a rationed item. It is quite easy for them to jump on the doom and gloom bandwagon. The net effect is the trolls and Jet fans who expect the worst have made this board so miserable that it drives away all reasonable and intelligent posters. We end up with a fractured, angry low IQ angry mob of a board. It is easy to tell people to be patient and that judgments need to be made over time not from moment to moment but in reality that is hard to do. Either way I hope people find a way to enjoy the season. This board is certainly a challenge but the ignore feature makes it immensely better. Hopefully the Knicks will give us something to watch as outside of the Islanders this has been a tough year.
