Eli > Rivers isn't a valid opinion in the same way Garrard > Brees isn't.

This is the type of lolbad stuff that I'm talking about. For one, I've never claimed Eli was better than Rivers.

If you really think those gaps are the same, you personify why the NFL threads here are horrible.

The gaps aren't the same. But it's like Joe Johnson > Kevin Durant. Or Matt Ryan > Drew Brees.

Again, it's not like these at all. My argument is with how close they are perceived, not with who is better.

By Tut? Nobody knows. TuT thinks Rivers isn't very good, and Eli is much better than we think. Although pretty sure all of us think Eli is good. So...

I do think Rivers is very good. I don't think he should be put in or near the same tier as Brees. Eli is also very good. And many people on here think he's much worse than I think he is. That is the crux of my argument. Whether I overcompensate for that, I don't really care.

Also, unrelated to their value on the field, I think Rivers is a huge douchebag, so it gives me all the more reason not to like him.

re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

Well I think we can all agree that fade routes are ******ed calls by risk-averse coaches unless there is a significant height/leaping advantage. That and coaches halting drives when they get into "field goal range" rather than trying to get closer to further improve their chances (cue 45-yard miss to lose the game when they easily could have gotten closer). And I feel qualified to lol @ coaches who do this because even I can see that they are huge pussies when it happens.

Also, more guesses as to who is the third person that Tri.umph was passive-aggressively calling out.

Why do you put periods in the names? People search their name or something? Heh.

re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

i guess i just dont understand the reasoning behind deleted posts when they're not taking away from the focus of the thread/topic. this thread has no topic. if posts are being deleted for rule violations, shouldn't people be getting banned or infracted too?

Yeah this was kind of a running joke that started because TZ was breaking the site like two years ago and we didn't want Rya.n B.eal to see it. Now I'm not really sure why people do it.

People vanity searching for their names is very real, thus the wildcards.

No, you use it to make yourself feel smarter than them:

Frankly, since you just admitted you just troll and **** on threads about sports you "don't care about"*, I'm still having trouble understanding why you haven't gotten a few days to cool off yet.

Probably because I don't really post banworthy ****. I hardly ever post in the MLB or NFL threads. I participate in the drafts, TZ, and Yankees threads.

Then all of a sudden I'm being called a parody mostly by posters I genuinely don't like and since I don't like them, I'm more than happy with annoying them whenever possible.

The levels of hypocrisy around here are hilarious. F60 is one of the biggest and most annoying trolls on the site. Tons of people cant stand him (I was always a fan), and yet as soon as a few people make fun of his soccer team he takes his ball and goes home like a little baby and starts talking **** ever since.

And yes, Michael Vick is better than Kevin Kolb. Suck it.
