    I've said this a lot. There are obviously a few really nice arenas in the A10, but we are in the top half of the league when it comes to overall facilities.

    Even when I used to go often and they were decent, it was always kind of a "blah" environment with many empty seats. I know this has likely been touched on before here, but while the Patriot Center is a nice standalone facility it has always had a few thousand too many seats to make it a must attend destination for a program with limited support from students/alumni.

    Yes, it's called "mob mentality" in sociology. Compare the threads after Saturday's victory @ Richmond and last night's ugly-fest @ Fordham—@ Richmond, not one troll; @ Fordham, trolls out in force.

    The best policy against the trolls outside of winning is to not feed them. The same points have been made a thousand times as rebuttal to the trolls' same old arguments spewed a thousand times. Trolls don't listen, they only like to eat. Well, trolls, EAT SH1T AND DIE! :tongueout:

    When you get guys like DJ3 who only like posts that trash the team, then you have to question whether they have any desire to see the team win.

    They don't, they would rather be "right" about bashing Paulsen and being the first ones off the boat. That's why DJ3, PMP and Masonlawyer should all be on everyone's ignore list. I'm frankly kind of dumbfounded that they aren't already.

    No, the trolls want to see Mason win. But, Mason can NEVER lose!

    I participate in this forum for two reasons: 1.) I like to have solid inside information about my team; 2.) The forum is entertaining—I love a good laugh at how idiotic some people can be. Plus, some of you all are absolutely hillarious!

    So, I don't ignore anyone here. I welcome all opinions. It makes me think. Others' opinions do two things for me 1.) Help me re-examine my own beliefs and either solidify them or provide the basis for positive modification; 2.) Help me to purge my body of unwanted bile and other toxic elements. Trolls=:vomit:. Either way, I win!

    The arena does draw some medium size musicians for concerts, that wouldn't fill up Capital One Arena.

    I never put anyone on ignore. The handful of anti-DP posters are likely representative of a percentage of the Mason fan base. Their perspective is important.

    Well, 2 more for my ignore list... KIDDING!

    For me it's a cost benefit analysis, when someone establishes beyond a shadow of a doubt that they have nothing to contribute (not merely that they disagree with me or the majority), it doesn't benefit me to have to continually read their same posts over and over and over.

    The percentage of our fan base they represent is comprised of a bunch of f*cking morons who know nothing about basketball, so you’ll forgive me if I give their “perspective” the attention they are due: a big, fat zippo.

    I was at the game.

    The fact that Mason shot 8 FTs the entire game, and only 3 in the 2nd half, was a joke. Fordham aggressively trapped the entire game, particularly in the 2nd half. Fordham even had a foul to give at the end of the game.

    The non-call on Greene's drive at the end of the game was also a joke. He was clearly fouled.

    As for some of the posters bashing Grayer, the kid's foot is clearly bothering him. He tried to give it a go last night but it did not work out -- I give him credit for that.

    I’m sure getting called for three BS fouls — while we kept getting mugged going to the rim with no call — didn’t help Grayer’s foot feel any better.

    He was clearly frustrated with the officiating, which was atrocious all night.

    On a somewhat related note I saw that the A10 tournament is being held at Verizon Center in DC? You want to talk about empty seats? That is going to look awful.

    Jollay is pretty tall too. He has a very small penis though, which you don't see a lot in tall people.
