OK, so I guess that probably got people’s attention. But the truth is, I’ve tried hard not to weigh in on this topic but after receiving email this weekend that people actually want to stop visiting this site and start their own Dodger blog because so many people here are being so negative, I finally had to at least try and help the situation along.
Please know that I am not trying to stop you all from sharing your opinions here, but I do believe that there is a tendency to harp on every minor thing that goes on with certain players/staff/executives that some of you on the blog don’t like. All I ask is that you actually try to keep the criticism remotely constructive and for a second, consider that this is actually not intended to be a place to rip the team to shreds whenever someone makes an error or an on-field decision that you disagree with.
This is also a place where many young fans like to read and the constant bad language is getting tiresome. My headline to this post was a joke because let’s be honest, just because you put a bunch of numbers or symbols in place of a bad word doesn’t mean that you aren’t having the same effect. I think everyone can get their respective points across without the bad language or mock bad language. At least I hope so. I hate to think that a few negative folks are making this a less enjoyable site to visit for the rest of the fans.
So please, keep this in consideration while you’re posting your comments. I don’t want this to become a place where everyone has rose-colored glasses on (that’s my job), but I also think that mistakes will happen from time to time and once you’ve made your point that you aren’t a big fan of a player or a decision, you don’t have to continue to point it out four times on each thread or every single day of the season.
Thanks for making this a "happy" place to visit…here’s the lineup:
