Okay, since you want to play the "who has an insightful comment" game. Why not post this in the dozen other threads related to changing the banner? You offer no reasons behind changing anything...nothing funny, nothing with a different perspective.

Why not go sleep it off? Posting dumb shit like this is bad for everyone.

Wow...you are getting massacred on this one.

For what it's worth, this thread does suck. I like the banner - - - I think it's funny. If you don't like it, go away!

Also, to the OP, I have no doubt that Brian appreciates your unsolicited advice. Next time, put down your appletini and chillax, bra.

Perhaps this is Brian's commentary on the state of the program; it's not like it's been months since the coaching change and the search. The emotional baggage related to the event(s) hasn't dissipated to nothingness just yet for many of us. I think a parallel would be, when does the Christmas tree come down? Right after Christmas, after the New Year, a week after the New Year? Is it a matter of beliefs or propriety? Considering it is HIS blog, I think the decorum is his to determine; personally, I think the lack of change is a message sent and when he's finish sending his message, it will be changed. Either that, or he's in the midst of a bender and might not even know who he is.

I almost feel bad for Brian to have to listen to this.

This is his blog - something that any human being (in the developed world) can create to express his or her opinions and do what they want to do. If you don't like his banner, or his "whiney ass rhetoric", then don't visit the blog. It's not Brian's fault that his opinions and work happen to be so good that his blog has become the place to get M football news on the web.

Of course it's only natural to have an opinion on things, but to act as if your opinion is better than Brian's - while not doing 1% as much for M football fans, and having comparatively less insightful information to share is only an expression of what an egotistical ass you are.

If you want the blog to be different than start your own - I'm sure you'll get just as many visits as Mr. Cook.   /s

on to something here.  While there is likely some objective form of "whiny," I think it's more often used in a subjective sense.

In other words, "a view I don't happen to like or that I disagree with = whiny; a view I happen to like/agree with = reasonable."

It all depends on how someone feels about it.  Then they cloak their feelings in language like "reasonable" or "whiny."  But it's still subject to the contingency of one's mere feelings, which are, of course, arbitrary.
