So, as a fairly social Bobcat fan, I tend to mingle on many of the message boards, even if only as a lurker (RealGM for example). You see a lot of the same folks, and it's all cordial and stuff. There are some knuckleheads, just like in real life.
However, I'm continually amazed at how pathetic so many of the posters on ESPN's message board are. It's one thing to have short sighted views on a team you don't follow (ie 98% of NBA fans about the Bobcats.) However, it's another to be plain ridiculous trolls. I think people didn't even look at the standings and assumed we were the worst team in the league, even though we were better than several teams.
It's just amazing how many people show up on arguably the most influential sports media's website and write such clueless posts.
I guess they draw the most people, bringing in the proportional amount of trolls and knuckleheads. However, for every 2-3 legitimate posts, there's at least one ridiculous posts. Because of this ratio, ESPN's Bobcat board is probably the worst on the net.
So, anyone find that ironic, or is the fact very telling about what ESPN represents?
