Hey guys, I know I'm a newish guy on the board as far as registration goes. Various jobs and stuff have not permitted me to join the site (not attached to the Bobcats, I'm not inside), but I have been roaming these boards for a couple of years now.
There is a lot of arguing and bickering, a lot of anger, and a lot of heated debate on these boards. Fans arguing about a team that is the joke of the NBA so passionately is a great testament to what this team is about. It's broken, it's being fixed, and fans, no matter how badly things have gone the past few years, are still as passionate as ever.
A few of you are on my ignore list, and I'm on a few ignore lists as well. That's fine, just means we pissed each other off. Nothing personal. Usually. lol
Main point of this thread was to say that, no matter what happens between now and the start of season... no matter the debates, arguments, vitriol, name-calling, ignoring, banning, etc... you guys (and gals if you're out there) are some of the most intelligent, passionate fans I've ever interacted with on any forum in any medium... that includes basketball, baseball, hockey, percussion, science fiction, and a few other forums that were just insufferably unintelligent.
If I've called you stupid or said something mean, it wasn't meant to be personal. I think we can all agree we're hot under the collar around this time of the season.
But I'm extremely grateful to be part of a community as intelligent and passionate as this. As the Bobcats transform into the Hornets, and this team continues to improve (and so with it, the fanbase increases), I just hope things around these forums stay as they have been lately... heated, mostly intelligent, and passionate about the team we all love.
Thanks, guys. It's gonna be a hell of an offseason. Glad I get to be part of it with you all.

This is a Bobcats fan forum. While we all argue and bicker over which one of us is the best armchair gm, we are all Bobcats fans. A lot of people take things way too seriously. I don't know who you are but I hope you continue posting here.
Let me add as "one of the older"...don't be quick to use the "ignore" because things can get better...I've been here for awhile and I've had my moments when I've apologized in a thread as well as sending a pm...I've never had to put someone on ignore but can't really say if others have put me there...LOL
We're all Horncats fans and to a person we know we're the best person as the Horncats GM...that said being civil is not a response to some one else being "sensitive"...being civil is just that...so I hope we can all remember these are "fellow fans" so let's all be civil...
@Problem Lol yeah I enjoy having you on the boards you cause a lot of controversy it's funny. Who do you have on your ignore list thought?
Seriously I love this forum. So much knowledge on here.
