Does that mean that Sports moderators should not be allowed to support their favorite team?
Almost. At the very least, to avoid the appearace of impropriety, if you're posting on a contentious thread (Is there any other kind in Sports or Politics?), you shouldn't "moderate" it. If need be, call your mod buddy and tell him to get this "semi-hole," "ghaydor," or "Cane pos" off your back. Anyone who's ever been in a leadership position knows this. Not that I consider modship a leadership position; I don't.
At the very minimum I'd say the person who is supposed to be keeping the peace shouldn't be one of the antagonists.
Again though, just one opinion.
You take this "way to seriously".
Never seem more learned than the people you are with. Wear your learning like a pocket watch and keep it hidden. Do not pull it out to count the hours, but give the time when you are asked. --- Lord Chesterfield
What? WHAT??? Denver was a complete team that lacked ONLY a QB. Every other phase of their team was solid and they got where they got last year despite having one of the worst QB's in the league.
Your memory is failing you. Tebow took over a team that could not win with a prototypical QB.......remember? They were pitiful. Tebow rallied their team and motivated them to win. He did what was needed with his legs and his arm.. He rallied fan support, got the whole country talking about his team and took them to a playoff win..............he then is dumped because he became too popular. His team them spends millions of dollars on very popular players to try and rally back fan support and they still fail in the playoffs...........message you got, Tebow can't play in the NFL..............don't be duped by the lying media losers.............he can play, he just needs a chance.
