I couldn't imagine logging into a Pats message board to discuss whether we should re-sign Keller or trade Revis.
I am am sure the majority of posters agree with you. The vast majority of patriot fans would not post here either. But I don't understand why you find it difficult to comprehend.
I don't know where you live, but here in NE outside of the kids in School in Boston, 98% of the fans are patriot fans. If you live in NY you get and give opposing takes on your team with giant's fans every day. That is unheard of up here.
There is a thread on Wes Welker on every Patriot board. There are 3 options you keep him or let him go, and at what price. After 100 responses, what is the chance of one more poster adding something meaningful to the discussion that the other 100 Patriot fans have not said already?
Look at some of the long threads on the jets here. and read how many of the posts are redundant or even worse posts like "me to" or "+1" Do you find them entertaining? I know what patriot fans think, I am surrounded by them every day. Like you most of them are only interested in the home team and have just a cursory interest in the other teams. The patriot fans that post here feel different.
