A number of critics have accused of us having an "agenda" and stating that we "hate" Karl Dorrell.
First, if you are confused about this blog, please read this
We don't hate Karl Dorrell, but we do have an agenda. Our agenda is that we want the Bruins to be the best they can possibly be. Unlike Blindo, we don't think the guys on the other side are evil, they're just wrong.
We are also open to the possibility that we may be wrong. If Karl Dorrell wins 9 games (and beats USC) then we will have to reconsider our opinion of him. We just don't think that's very likely. The founders of this site all graduated from UCLA and we would love nothing more than for the teams to win every single game. In basketball, we happen to think that the coach is on the right track. In football, we don't. It's just that simple. That's our agenda. We will shut up about Karl Dorrell as soon as he proves us wrong.
With regard to the untrue and absurd characterization of how we feel about Karl Dorrell, this just goes back to the Lavin days, when the Lavinistas were totally out of touch with reality, and supporting him became more importatnt than the success of the team. To me, the similarities are eerie. I wish Karl Dorrell nothing but success. If he is succesful, my favorite team will be successful. But, based on my observations, he's not the guy to get the job done. Again, I could be wrong. I'm open to that possibility. Blindo and Circulo frequently resort to strawman arguments. If you support Karl Dorrell, great. All I ask is that you tell us why, without resorting to straw men, or personal attacks upon us.
Everyone's opinion is welcome here. We don't care what you think. Even if you think Karl Dorrell is the greatest coach ever, that's fine with us (although we certainly reserve the right to disagree!).
Unlike some other websites, we won't delete anyone's comments as long as they follow the rules. In fact, if you look at the diaries, there is one that says Dorrell Bashing Must Stop!
There, we had rational people, some of whom think Karl Dorrell is the right man for the job, and some who disagreed. Which is a lot better than anything you'll see on any of the other message boards. And that's what we're trying to build here. A community for all Bruins fans.
As far as "you hate Karl Dorrell" Strawculo attack, I think Mav covered that one pretty well in his comics section.
It had to be said. I doubt it will do any good, as Strawculo never bothers checking out the actual arguments and data we look at, but, for future reference, we've laid everything out in the open (again).
UPDATE: A reminder to all, whatever your viewpoint, feel free to write a diary telling us why we are right or wrong.
