    jm, I forgot to put you on the list of "reasonable" fans, You sir, are definitely reasonable and fair. You're right - there are a lot of reasonable State fans, just as there are reasonable Duke and Carolina fans. Maybe the "unreasonable" ones just post more.

    This forum is a lot better when you DO post, jcinncar. I wish you'd read less and post more. Or read more and post more. Just post. You're missed.

    I would like to nominate myself as the most reasonable fan....though not of the wolfers! Just the most reasonable and responsible person on here!

    It did crack me up when you said you "try to approach topics from a neutral point of view"

    Now THAT'S FUNNY!

    I thought most of us were reasonable, sure there are a few "fanatics" and haters, but most Pack fans are reasonable people.

    We sure have NOT.

    The reason they have "indifference" towards the "sexual harassment" stuff is because they are so happy that boys are going after girls in chapped hole.

    BTW, it's still not over.

    Here's a hint: An independent investigation is one WHERE YOU DO NOT GET TO PICK THE INVESTIGATOR.

    And I'm not sure anyone is even calling what Martin did an "investigation" anyway. He even admitted things he did not investigate. I'm pretty sure his task was fairly limited in scope. And it was a joke. It is clear that Carolina's PR team (yes, the team of lawyers that they hired to handle their PR through this mess) wanted this done in order to be able to tell the NCAA this was an academic problem, and not an athletic problem.

    They actually WANTED it to be an academic problem and practically celebrated it not being an athletic problem. Not sure how they could even conclude that when there were classes enrolled entirely with athletes. It's like they presented all this evidence that it WAS an athletic scandal, and then concluded it was NOT.

    The good thing is this is far from over. Far, far from over. They won't get away with this in the end. It may take years, sometimes that is how it goes. But this house of cards is tumbling as we speak. I honestly think they are just dragging it out as long as they can in hopes that when the NCAA finally DOES come back to town, it will be so far in the future that their NCAA titles will be safe due to expired statutes of limitations. And (in their minds), if they actually do pull it off, all the better.

    How was this for a big, fat dose of REASONABLE! LOL

    Thats because you have no interest in an independent investigation (Jim Martin sez Hi, and so does the NCAA and the SBI), you are only interested if the results end up as WHAT YOU THINK THEY SHOULD BE. The biggest oxymoron in here is the fact you have "Truth" at the beginning of your blog name when it is the furthest thing from your little cruel Badger mind.

    It is not reasonable to expect a unc fan to go out of his way to find reason to praise ncsu.

    It is not reasonable to expect an ncsu fan to go out of his way to praise unc.

    I believe that these things are to be understood by partisans of either side on a forum such as this... though on occasion a well-earned acknowledgement may be refreshingly objective.

    It is reasonable to expect a self-proclaimed fan to at least occasionally have positive things to say about "his" team.

    AND it is reasonable for another fan of said team to call that supposed "fan" out in the absence of any such positivity.

    You should've ended your post with "I'm biased" and stopped right there. You seem a tad desperate to convince people here you are one of the reasonable ones. You are categorically unreasonable when it comes to your despise of UNC.

    Maybe Hans but definitely not TB in NC. He is two faced.

    I'm biased. But I'm fair. I won't lie to make a point. I've been wrong a time or three, and I always admit it when I learn I was wrong about something.

    I try to approach topics from a neutral point of view. People think I just hate Carolina (which I do!) and want them to go down. But I don't see how anyone can't see right through their little games they play regarding their scandal. It is mind boggling, as are the fans that suspend their common sense and accept everything they put out like Oliver wanting "more."

    But a State fan can't say anything without someone just trying to discredit them (not their message) in an effort to beat an otherwise valid point.

    I don't post a lot on this forum. The primary reason being I like to discuss sports and the pertinent topics of the day...not volley insults back and forth. Then again, the forum is entitled "Talk Smack Forum".

    As a relatively unbiased observer I would suggest that KenD is the most informative and thought provoking member of this forum. I consider TBK to be another informative, if not unbiased, member of the forum. The group that JG included in a prior post are all important members who each bring their own particular styles and approach to the board.

    The credibility of these members and some others are why I read these threads. I suspect that there are quite a few like myself around...those who read far more than participate.

    Your sense of humor is one of the best on here and it's why you're OK in my book, even though you're a card carrying ABC'er.

  • StunGunn Jan 22, 2013

    When I thought about it, there are actually a lot of reasonable State fans here:
    TB, Wolfbites, ncfam24, buckets, duane11, ncsu24, packfan79, jbbaker5, dsalter,jscott13.

    There are others I'm probably forgetting, and I apologize.

    Probably the best poster on here is KenD. He is an excellent writer and he's completely unbiased.

    TBK writes well and his posts are never mean spirited, but his hate for Carolina isn't "reasonable" at times.

    FWIW we all have "good" fans and "bad" fans.

    I wondered how long it would take someone would seize upon that.

    I'm actually one of the most reasonable people on this blog. You just don't like me because I don't accept the bull-shoot coming from Carolina during their never ending scandal.

    At least I'm not alone!

    And whoever nominated Hans needs to re-read the subject line. This is only open to STATE fans.
