I am blessed, but it was SARCASM.
Denard Robinson is fast fast.
sorry...sarcasm detection FAIL
I try to avoid it as much as possible, but sometimes it's just plain necessary.
You just spent 8 posts justifying what you said, and now you're claiming you're joking?
And the "you're a nerd for commenting on the blog on which I'm writing this comment" attack is always gold. Gold!
No, I said I was joking about never wanting to hear his name again. I am serious about thinking he was not a good cornerback. And, I am arguing that I can say whatever the hell I want without the blog police questioning my loyalty to the program. Unless any of you is actually Charles Woodson, what have any of us done for the program? We come to sites like this on occasion to look foward to the upcoming season and bitch about things that bother us. Unless I start seeing posts from you to about the quality efforts that third team recievers are putting in over their careers and how thankful you are for the efforts, I think you should back the hell off.
You do have the right to say anything you want. So do I.

That would be applicable if I were criticizing you for not singing the praises James Rogers. I criticized you for shitting on a Michigan player.
If you have the right to say whatever the hell you want, then we have the right to chastise you for saying things that belittle the players who play(ed) for Michigan's football program. You can't dis Michigan players and expect us all to give you high fives.
Fair enough, but if we weren't arguing, what else would I do on a slow friday?
Masturbation is preferable to arguing. If you're at work, get a Stadium Pal!
I might regret asking this, but, what is a stadium pal?
What does "uttering negative remarks" about those three guys have to do with being a Michigan fan? They're from OSU, MSU, and OSU, respectively.
(Hint: Those are our biggest rivals.)
here here or hear hear, whatever, you are spot on.
How fast is fast fast? I thought we were done with these threads. Hopefully Woolfolk plays well. If he's really that fast then he shouldn't get burned as many times as Stevie Brown. How fast is Emilien?
he's just fast.
Oh God here we go. Is this a Friday phenomena?
I'm done. I think my point is clear at this juncture.
It is also clear that he isnt going to admit his mistake. So let it go chitown. BlockM on the other hand is going to keep commenting, cuz he loves himself some points!
C'mon guys, I just want some more points... I use them to cushion my fragile self consciousness.
Seriously though, I wouldn't post so much if I wasn't so incredibly bored at work these days. I may also have a slight problem allowing someone else to have the last word.
I feel sorry for your children.
I have lost thirty points during the course of this banter, so I guess most of you disagree with me. I give up, you win. Hurray Morgan Trent!!! We are doomed this year without him!
I get the feeling UMchild is less petulant than you. Let's hope he/she takes after UMmom.
No worries, UMkids are very warm fuzzy
Go back and watch the games. Trent hit hard, ran fast and played with every bit of heart he had. He never quit on plays. Watch the freaking Cap One bowl, will ya. Yeah, he was not Charles Woodson, so freaking what--those kind don't come around too often.. Quit hating on M players.
Best thread of the week
Unless you, like me, lose all of your points and receive an email telling you that all of your abilities have been revoked. Ouch! Lesson, Don't disagree with people from chicago or named magnus. Apparently they are the Corleones around here.
It wouldn't have mattered who you were arguing with on this topic, you were doomed from the start.
If you thought that was a beating, you should see my wife.
Okay, I'm not married. But you can imagine if I was, am I right? Right?
weird, people don't agree on everything.
How am I losing points so fast(I started today with about 100)? OK, I give, I apologize. I should have let it go right off of the bat, but was bored and thought I would argue a little bit. Here is my Michael Vick apology: I understand that Morgan Trent is just a kid doing the best he can at a sport he loves, and worked very hard along with the other kids on the team to give me something to cheer for and be proud of on Saturdays. He never got caught beating his girlfriend or buying drugs and I cannot claim that he gave it less than 100% on any given play. I teach my kids never to boo or jeer opposing players during games and picking on him on a blog could qualify as the same thing. The people have spoken.
By the way, how can I get so slammed by disrespecting a player from a team I root for, when just a couple of threads later someone opens with 'Kevin Smith is a Moron' and doesn't get the same response. Is it a college vs. pro thing? And yes, I realize that posting another message gives you the opportunity to give me another bunch of negative points.
if bouje has taught me anything, it's that if you keep whining about points you'll go down to -400 and then be reinstated with a BILLION points
No, No. No whining. I will take my lumps. I will continue to respond, giving ample time for people to hammer the negatives if they choose and get it out of their systems. I will not cry, nor will I start over with a new account. I will hit bottom and work my way back up. Perhaps one day even earning some measure of respect from those who have persecuted me.
I bet you really like to hear yourself talk too.
Collegiate players are unpaid amateur athletes and deserve to be treated as such. Professional athletes are paid to perform well and win. They are absolutely fair game for fan outrage and criticsm, imho.
I think even you would agree with this.
come back one year!
ridiculed by a monkey with a gun... and this day started off with such promise.
Who is Denard?
Did I miss something? I love how there are 125ish posts on a thread merely about how Denard Robinson is awesomely fast. Sidetracked much?
You are surprised that a message board thread was drastically sidetracked into another heated discussion? You must be new to the internet.
"I love how" not= "I'm surprised that"
It's one thing when it happens in more controversial threads (e.g. "What exactly is Rich Rodriguez building?" diary entry by barking sphincter), but it's amusing when these things sometimes happen in threads with such innocuous titles and content as "DRob is Fast Fast."
I love how speed is one of the most controversial topics on mgoblog.
Nothing like a good debate on 40 times to get the blood boiling.
