I just got up and came to BON as I usually do, first thing in the morning. I see that the Tebow thread is continuing to grow longer and longer as Beergut baits more and more of us into an fruitless discussion about the greatest player of all time based upon various ever-changing metrics, blah, blah, blah. Let me save you the time folks.
It is madness to have a discussion with someone who is going to distort facts, change the rules as he goes, and is impervious to reason. While Beergut is clearly capable of bringing something interesting to the table, he is obviously more interested in provoking people. He does so here, at Double T Nation, and other SBN blogs. Meanwhile he hasn't commented at 12thmanchild in over a year. This is not someone who wants to talk college football, this is someone who wants to argue. My own instinct upon reading some of his most recent nonsense is to dive back into the fray, as I have done numerous times before.
I'm not going to this time.
There are numerous blogs out there where we can argue with each other, walk each other into semantic traps, and engage in spiteful rhetoric. As PB suggested, orangebloods is only a few keystrokes (and a subscription fee) away.
What drew me to BON in the first place was the lack of bickering and the preponderance of high minded discourse about all things Longhorn. I know that I have contributed to the watering-down of great content with petty arguments, and for that, I apologize.
I guess I just wanted to say that while I will continue to actively read this blog, and regularly comment, for what it's worth, I personally am not going to engage in the "conversations" with everyone's favorite aggie.
