I am disappointed with the Stampede Blue loyalists this week. It seems that every few weeks, some moron troll either digs into a post with comments, or creates his own Fanpost. Everyone knows that the way to treat and defeat a troll is to starve.
Unfortunately, the fan base here cannot find the fortitude to simply avert their eyes and quietly click the back button and move on to the next story. Ideally they would not even read past the moment they realize that the post has no merit and is intended only to provoke, regardless of content (please no comments about Brad's posts). It's difficult I know, especially when Colts news is slow and we're hungry for the smallest morsel of stimulation as a fan. But if we thrash about for these poisonous crumbs, we will contaminate this wonderful site. Its junk food man!
Yes, Brad posts the occasional troll like column, but think of his as the Lay's, and these impostors as that awful off brand that is past it's expiration date that you find in a rusty old truck stop off the highway . Yuck! Sure, it's crunchy and will keep you occupied, but it is really just mindless mashing of bland filler that takes space from something that would be actually nutritious or truly satisfying. Don't do it man! Put down the microwave burrito in the plastic wrapper that lists textured vegetable protein as the first ingredient.
Oh, and once you've found the strength to ignore these trolls, can you please draw from this new found ability and not rubberneck on I-70 when there is a fender bender accident? It's the same concept really. Just avert your eyes; you have nothing of value to contribute, and slowing to look makes a mess of a great stretch of metro highway.
