    You never would have received this recognition if not for ANDREW FROM WALDORF as well as The DIPSY. Two extremely deep thinkers and baseball pundits.

      Except that the difference is that The Dipsy actually makes sense most of the time and is kind and respectful towards his fellow posters.

    Chuck A —- True. But the opposites create a good guy/bad guy atmosphere. Hero/bully pulse. It sort of makes it interesting. Blogs have entertainment value with villains and heros. Both are important. And, frankly, sometimes, AFW is funny as hell because he pisses so many off and he knows EXACTLY what he is doing when doing it. He even annoys me sometimes, but overall I appreciate his pinholes puncturing my zeal for the Phils. It’s low-brow entertainment and not all that serious.

    …..And Dipsy, despite his intellectual approach to blogging is one pompous dude. Smug and condescending. Ovedrally a nice guy, but that is my take. The two make for fun theatre.

    The site is at its best when people talk baseball instead of yapping at one another…. There are plenty of other blogs out there where 90+% of the comments are just people calling each other names, etc … That shouldn’t happen here…

    This is a great site, with great writers, great readers/comments, … generally very intelligent baseball discussion – everything from X’s and O’s -to- Front Office… to the Farm System… etc … the people on here know they’re stuff!

    Not sure why some people get such kicks about arguing over the internet, but for some people, that’s all they got..

    I’ve asked certain people to bury the hatchet over things, and just when I thought we did -things get brought up again, a week later…

    my request to the rest of you is to lets all focus on baseball discussion and leave the name-calling, bickering, pissing contests for any other blog… PhilliesNation is better than that!

    Don M — I can live with that. Good points. Personally, I try to rise above the bickering but I do get a kick out of others sometimes, especially on slow days. Perhaps I am an immature old bastard. You make good points. Agreed

    I just think if people really argue about something on here, that they disagree about something, that’s one thing … for people to continually draw to start arguments day-in and day-out is another thing entirely ….. and it doesn’t belong on a quality site like this in my opinion

    Don M — Sometimes the site can get sophomoric with the bickering. I do agree. I also think we have some youngsters on here that can get into the bickering, as well.
