What happened, Peninsula?


... I remember "Peninsula is Mightier" from before you had LeBron and Bosh. It used to be a lot more fun to read here, and hang around.

You guys used to talk basketball, but now 50% of the game threads consists of whining about refs, talking about how superior your team is, and plain aggression. Talk about how someone should "deck" this player, how that other player should get his "teeth knocked out", and more of those kinds of silly posts.


I really like Haslem, Ilgauskas, Wade. House is still one of my favourite ex-Celtics and I fondly remember all he did for us when I see him hit a three, even though it bites when he does that against us. I will even recognise that LeBron might be having another MVP-worthy year. That he's dominating the league. That there is hardly a player that can match up with him.

But in all of this, you've become less of a place where basketball was discussed, and more of a place where silly fans throw their curses at other teams. Where all sense of reality has gone out of the window. Whether it has made some of you become less classy, or it came with all the new-found Miami fans: something is missing.

Where have you gone, Peninsula?

(ps.: no offence to the people that *did* hold the ford, and still add great wit, knowledge and class to the blog.)
