re: Team by Team comparison of attendance for the first two games(Hornets dead last)(Posted by 42 on 11/10/12 at 3:09 pm to quail man)
You are expect to have a conversation. You are expected to make points, have others make them, then move on.
Pointing to a number in the box score has no value . . . because it's in the box score. Where's the discussion? Where's the news? Where's the insight?
Then, when people talk about the context in which these numbers fit, you do not participate.
Some say this is because you are just starting trouble.
I say it's because you are incapable of advanced thought. You may call them "big thoughts." A thought is like a little picture in your head, by the way.
So, make a point, and maybe you'll see less resistance.
For example, I've said the attendance will be bad this year. Once. In a well-composed post based on data and projections. I wasn't called a troll (and I was right). You are simply restating facts that we all know and really don't need to know too much more about since they are in line with expectation. An expectation is something you think will happen, so a little picture in your head of something before you actually see it.
So, make a new point if you can, or have your mom do it if you like.
