Just spent a weekend at home in the 7cities before work starts up. thought I would share a few things some of you might not like. I read this board all the time and the way I look at its just fans being fans. but these kids don't see it like that. I know a lot of people and what I'm telling you isnt some message board BS . All this negativity on the Internet about VT whether its here or wherever it's hurting us. One of these kids read this board all the time and it has changed his opinion of VT. He likes the Hokies a lot but everything he reads has him questiioning himself. As a Hokie that makes me mad. why has our fan base gotten so negative. Just think before you post. TRUST ME ON THAT. Ease stop being so negative. How would you feel as a 16 year old tryin to learn about the team you wanna play for and most of what you read is the fans complaining about VT in some way. Then you go to uva site and they celebrating 24-7 after getting that ass whooped by VT almost every year for the last 15. Just don't make sense Hokies!!! I know it's not on purpose but like i suggested think before you post.
You might want to show them this:
one of my chokie buddies sent me this link and in the very same email said I had to question i
Reality check. Negativity gets you no-where.
Fair enough. I can only speak for myself on this so here goes. I know its been stated time and time again that negativity affects recruiting. I guess I didn't want to believe that a message board could affect things so drasticly. But I'm done trying understand how and why it affects recruits. I guess with me you could say die-hard fan also equals hard-headed. The last thing anyone wants outside of the few trolls on here is to adversely affect anything VT related. So I finally relent, i'm adopting an if you don't have anything nice to post, don't post it.
Over/under for u is 2 days.
And I promise I'm rooting for u.
No clue why some guys can't get this through their head. I truly wish the ban hammer was used more.

Tell you what, you can hold me to that.
I agree with most of what you are posting. However, the uva sites are the same way. They talk smack about our recruits, they thought Phillip Simms was going to lead them out of the hole, and now a bunch of them have turned on him in favor of Lambert... Check that place out after a loss, it looks just like any other board after a loss, people throwing coaches under the bus, etc... I agree that less negativity should be the goal, but every other college teams boards are virtually the same, imo...
Hard to take these posts seriously when there are so many Hoos masquerading as Hokies to bring this subject up again and again. They want it brought up because all these posts get forwarded to these kids to make VT out to be this awful fanbase that just isn't real. Its all they have left. They can't beat us on the field, so they're are trying to turn the rivalry by petty BS like this. I wish JC or CZY would just delete every thread that is talking about it. No more posts on it. Just move on.
