How did this site become a political mess?

I hardly comment anymore on posts. If I do, I try keep my opinions to myself. Not worth it. 

The way people get treated here sometimes is straight up appalling. Comments are made to cut deep. The pack mentality runs wild.

I come here because I'm an Eels fan. Turns out some people are here because they're fans of themselves.

  • I think HOE and Super explained well, why McLovin was banned. There's no need to start another blog about it calling out the mods for their pack mentality. 

    • LOL!!!!

  • I agree, most on here are intent on delivering a serve back,  working on their biggest insult or trying to prove someone wrong rather than talking about the footy.

    Some commenters on this site have a great take on footy and I enjoy reading their opinions, especially if it's different from my own, Frankie and Poppa being a couple of examples... While I don't always agree, they almost always present a different view which is important to value and respect.

  • Whatever it is you don't like, i am happy as it has kept you  shut up you sanctimonious virtue signalling stooge.

    • Randy is right on the money here, all EAM does here is attack people and put people down, this blogs hillarious coming from such a toxic poster lol

      • SeS, I'll defend myself or someone else when needed. Unlike some, I don't come here to put people down. 

        You call me a toxic poster. Please. I think anything you don't agree with is considered toxic. 

    • Virtue signalling? Ha, na mate, I  always back my statements and opinions. 

  • I honestly don't notice all the sniping. Whenever a thread goes off topic and becomes personal I skim straight past it. 
    My observation of this site is it tends to the negative. Parra win 50 - nil and there'll be a thread about how BA didn't use the bench properly or that the Storm would have won by 60. 

    • That's a great assumption mutts, but don't forget, some are subconsciously trying not to get their hopes up as to make what they assume as the enviable fall softer, but who couldn't blame them? Been a while lol. Not their fault.  No doubt Arthur has done well. Some good improvements with a few younger players coming through. 

    • I'm the same Muttman. I hate it when you see a blog with multiple pages, at first you think, "oh.., this might be a good one..." then you just find that it spiralled out of control with abuse.

"First sentence nails it. Eels power brokers won't want to lose a fan favourite though. Sivo, Sivo, Sivo = more money through the gates."

"Mostly good things from that trial.but still som concerns.
Our backs are nothing to write home about, our hookers are definitely mid tier and our defence is still shit.
Other than that, not to bad at all."

"Spot on , both our centres don't seem to be big on defensive comminication.Thats always a worry.
Teams that have continuity throughout the year with centre and wing combinations not only have better defensive structures but end up on the pointy end…"

"I think Paulo looks more mobile this year he's definitely dropped some kegs.
The ball movement once they get the fast play the ball and off load is good to see aswell it means we are going to be harder to defend.
Fowards passing to fowards beautiful…"

Speech replied to LB's discussion Most impressive and disappointing: Trial week 2 v Gold Coast
"You are being harsh with Lussick. The team was slick early and that was when he was on the field. It was also very humid. The big concern is depth same as last year. If we get another injurt or suspension while Sivo is out we are in a bit of trouble."

What am I missing here?

For the past three seasons at least, opposition teams have gone to our wing on the tryline and found at least 20 meters of unmarked territory. they just stroll over for a try. Again today. What's going on? If I can see it surely a coach can see it…
