What a difference a year makes. Warning: contains no Blake, Roy, McMillan insults

I started reading BE last year because I couldn't get enough Blazers talk. I'd Tivo 'em and watch the game again (or at least the good parts) multiple times whenever I could. It was always great for homers like me to read about our team and how we were trying to grow. I was faithful to Blazers Edge. Daily, twice a day, three times, four, sometimes even more. No matter what we had to say about our players, we always seemed to want them to do well (even Sergio and Channing). Good thing. They were classy guys. And when there were complaints about them, they were limited to an occasional or even regular postings, but they were never tiresome or hateful or personal in any way.

Until now. Now, no matter what the title of the post, it seems to always deteriorate into complaining, no, worse, whining. And always the same few topics. 1) Why is Steve Blake starting? 2) Why is Nate always out-coached and doesn't he know how to coach a) big men, b) the clock, c) a running team? 3) Why doesn't Brandon Roy accept that Andre Miller is what the team needs to win a championship? 4) Brandon is spoiled.

If I read one more time that Blake is Nate's girlfriend or he's paying the Sonics back for Gary Payton or "I'm really starting to hate Blake" or the only answer is to trade Blake or Brandon Roy is selfish because he won't adjust to not being the playmaker or McMillan is ruining Greg Oden (breathe) when I'm just hoping to follow posts about the previous game or the upcoming game, I'm going to be sick. Does it really have to get personal? These guys, every one of them, is a classy guy too. You talk about them like they're the Jail Blazers.

And before you chastise me because you're entitled to your opinion (which you so sanctimoniously believe is ALWAYS right) and I should just go away, I know you're entitled. I just don't want to read it over and over. And over. And over. Regardless of what the posting is about.

You've (and you know who you are) sure taken the fun out of it for me.
