If no one has done it before, I will say it now.
I just got through reading the Cleveland Cavaliers Blog "Fear the Sword", about LeBron James leaving their team. And it was quite entertaining...yet disturbing too.
Although many of the members do have a point about how Diva-ish LBJ is and such, but they way the come off about LBJ, and when fans of other teams try to console/reason with them, the members respond harshly and unnecessarily cruel...like some customers were to me this week at the Doraville Kmart that made me want to snap back at them because of their abuse of the word "customer (satistifaction)" but that's another story (Dr Phil, BBB - Maybe). Even at times on our other Atlanta site Peachtreehoops, I see some overzealous comments that often talk about nothing.
It made me think how much refiner things are here at the Falcoholic. Yes we do get emotional, and Cleveland Fans have every right to be upset at the situation, and all of their historic heartbreak, but we are for the most part humble, tamed, and respectful of others. The Main Blogger of "Fear the Sword" doesn't seem to enforce that there. It reminds me of working at a job where the manager doesn't give a (bleep) about the employees and how they carry themselves, or the company is only in the best interest of themselves and not the people who do the work for them.
Dave "The Falconer" Choate like Thomas Dimitroff and Mike Smith has somehow...some way established a culture of respect, intellect, modesty, facts, emotional consideration, wisdom, and creative concepts, and other elements you just don't see anywhere else on Sports Blog Nation (at least not that I know of).
It's things like this site that makes me wish that I too could embark on creating something like this myself. Start something with my own vision and identity, that truly special, unique; with integrity, honesty, respect, creativity, innovation, and other elements that stands out to people and makes a difference in society. But without resources, and ideas I'm frustrated in not being able to exert myself and I the only hope I have is the phrase you see below my comments "Live, for the possibility" But in the meantime let's enjoy the way things are on the Falcoholic as Dave, Jason, and Adam continue to orchestrate this fine organization for well meaning people like us and the tradition will continue (and spread) for years to come in many ways.
Should there be a SBN site approval rating?
