To the Whiney Little Bitches Who Come Out of Their Holes When We Lose -- Get the Fuck Out of Here
First a Disclaimer: This is my opinion only and does not represent the opinions of anyone formally attached to BN. I have no authority to tell anyone to come or go -- but, if I did, some of you would be gone.
This is the maddest I've been after any Bruin game, in any sport, in a long time.
Let me get one thing clear. I'm not mad that we lost. It happens.
I'm mad at the whiney little bitches who show up when things aren't going well and throw hand grenades.
I was so pissed off during the game thread, and the post game thread, that I left , went to the gym, worked out hard, and then came back to write a more level headed post -- this is the best I can do.
I really don't get it -- where do you negative people come from? You don't show up in the daily life of BN, don't make contributions to the every day threads and posts, and don't show up in the game threads when we are winning.
But, as soon as we struggle, you're there if full voice calling out players and the coaching staff -- with absolutely no substance behind your posts.
The poster boy for this phenomena? A certain commenter [BN Edit] who joined today, so that he could enlighten us with the post "JS is garbage". Josh Shipp scored 18 points on 8-14 shooting. Yes, in some ways this was not his best game, but who the fuck are you to call him "garbage"? That's not the way we treat our Bruin brothers and sisters.
Win or lose, we are a family.
And, those of us who pay attention to this family know better than most that there were gaps to be filled in this year's team -- that it was young and somewhat inexperienced, that we had 3 starters who had not played much and had lost 3 stellar players.
In a like manner, the whining and pontificating about how CBH can't coach Offense is absolutely the chant of the uninformed. We shot 49% in this game -- we have one of the most efficient offenses in the country. This was not our best game. But the problems -- shown by the numbers -- were on two fronts. We turned the ball over too many times -- which is something we have not done, lately AND we played BAD D in the first half when they shot over 60% from the field; we improved in the second half, to make the game close, and brought them down to around 50%.
My point here? We didn't lose because CBH can't coach O, we lost because we didn't execute the D that CBH is acclaimed for coaching.
Of course, you whiney little bitches didn't bother to confront those facts -- you just threw your crap out there -- bandwagon babies, without regard for its accuracy.
And of course, there are the whiney little bitches who have already written off our entire season because we lost two tough road games -- no final fours for us, no Pac 10 titles, just a "failed year".
Again, nothing could be farther from the truth. Most thoughtful commentators have said that the winner of the Pac 10 might well have 4 or 5 conference losses. Last time I looked we were tied for second in the conference. If we can take care of business at home next weekend, we can climb closer to the top. And, this may be the year where I finally love the fact that the Pac 10 has a tournament. The more experience our young and inexperienced players get, the better.
You whiney little bitches, measuring our season in poll standings and Final Fours have no idea what's going on this year, how we are building and moving forward. Yes, it is 4 steps forward and then 2 back -- but anyone who watches can see the positive side of what's happening -- even in terrible losses like this one.
Get a clue: We are not entitled, by birth, to play in a Final Four. We are not entitled, by birth to be in the top 10 in the polls, all season long. And, when you cry because we are fading in the polls and then predict that we won't get to the final four, you are acting like uninformed selfish children.
We will be where we will be when we get there. No one expected the team to go to its first Final Four, three years ago -- and it did. We might, too. And, your whining and crying will have no impact on whether we get there.
You'll just piss off those of us who try to make solid, substantive contributions to BN, every day -- the people like Blink who did an incredible statistical analysis that gave us all a basis for our comments and criticisms, and the people like the front page guys, especially Nestor, who knock them selves out posting more fact based content here than most of us would find in any sports section in the country. And, you'll piss off all of the regulars around here, the family, that gathers during the game day threads -- like buddies in a seating section at Pauley -- who know each other, trust each other, and have earned the right to be critical with their well reasoned and substantive body of posts at BN.
Oh, by the way, I don't want to hear the mantra we always here form the drive by whiners when they get called out "I was just letting off steam, I was just so frustrated."
Get a clue. These threads are not about you. Sorry, you little egocentric bitches, this is not a place for you to come and throw tantrums to express your displeasure -- at the expense of the entire community.
Need a release, throw something at the TV, but don't call out our players or call them names, our coaching staff, our moderators, or the serious posters here -- and then later try to say -- "I was frustrated".
So were we, but we managed to act like Bruins. You might want to try it.
In my eyes, some of you have dug some pretty deep holes, today. We are a forgiving place -- and if you want to fit in, I suggest you do some posts that analyze the data, or present full and complete ideas in ways that build the community not detract from it.
There is room for everyone here -- but this isn't one of those places where you can spew on line garbage posts. If that's what you want to do, there are other places to go.
Rather be here? Act like it.
Once more, the disclaimer -- these are my thoughts and mine alone. Nestor, if this is too heated for the space, I will respect your decision to pull it down. It's just that it is hard enough to analyze the game and contribute to the thread, on a bad game day, without having to confront these people.
