So a story that I honestly thought was a post in jest was published on June 5th. I was not surprisingly met with bile and hate spewed in my direction by fellow Raider fans after posting a light-hearted comment in regards to a fan having his SUV stolen. I will not apologize for that comment as the replies were equally as offensive as the comment itself. What did surprise me was finding not only my comments but an entire comment thread being deleted.
I've been a registered member of S&BP for three years since I consider it one of if not the best sources for Raider news. Contributors such as Rated R Superstar, Rich "Noontide" Langford, and Sons of Blanda brought an insightful perspective of the team since they were genuine fans of the franchise while also not fearing to point the team's limitations. Another factor that kept me coming back was the fact S&BP was the antithesis of rival sites such as Arrowhead Pride or Mile High Report. By this I meant fans can say their peace whether other commenters agree with it or not without the threat of their account being flagged or being kicked off the site.
Whether you consider this sour grapes then so be it. I just wanted to make those that hadn't acknowledged or noticed this aware. If this post is deleted or even if I am banned from this site it will only prove my point.
