    I was delighted to see the Broncos destroy the Chiefs last week, but now I'm thinking the Chargers are going to have to be at the top of their game to beat them. They looked very strong.

    What do you think the Chargers will have to do to beat them? The first thing that comes to mind is improved special teams play and no blocked punts. We'll also have to be on the lookout for trick plays like flea flickers and end-arounds, which worked against the Chiefs.

    The Chiefs are not a real contender and neither are the Broncos.

    What is real? How do you define real? If you're talking about what you can hear, what you can smell, taste and feel, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.

    Yeah, but TBBT is not funny. At all.

    Maybe that's the joke?

    I don't think the Donks are for real either but I have a nervous feeling about this upcoming game with them. Last year we came off a bye week and played the Donks on a Monday night game and lost, Denver 34, San Diego 23. Hopefully history doesn't repeat itself.

    Commenting on and asking for opinions about the upcoming game somehow makes me a troll? Please explain.

    The apostrophe ( ’ , often rendered as ' ) is a punctuation mark, and sometimes a diacritic mark, in languages that use the Latin alphabet or certain other alphabets. In English, it serves two main purposes: the omission of one or more letters (as in the contraction of does not to doesn't), and the marking of possessive cases (as in the cat's whiskers). According to the Oxford English Dictionary (OED), the word comes ultimately from Greek ἡ ἀπόστροφος [προσῳδία] (hē apóstrophos [prosōidía], “[the accent of] ‘turning away’, or elision”), through Latin and French.[1]

    Apostrophe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Considering some of the asinine responses I've had to my harmless little post, it's not hard to see why I've nearly given up on posting here.

    Don't take it personal, troll is thrown out a lot on this board often being misused. I was called a troll by a troll not long ago, go figure.

    How was the preceeding post to this one deserving of this response?

    EKdog has posted here before and is not deserving of being called a troll IMHO.

    I think every team in the division is MORE real than anytime in the past 6 years or so including Denver. The division has gotten better. Look at the Raiders at the 9th game of the season and they are tied for 1st. Granted it will be a short lived 1st place standing but nonetheless it is something we have not seen in ages. It makes it more interesting. I like the scenario where we are about to dash the hopes of Raiders fans who think their team is back only to be dominated.

    What from the first post would make him NOT a Chargers fan? Is he sporting a Jets avatar like others? Is he bagging on the Chargers? What is it from that post that twisted so many peoples short hairs?

    He said he was happy the Broncos dismantled the Chiefs. I was to. Am I now not a Chargers fan?
    He said the Chargers have to be on top of their game. I say the Chargers CANT look past Denver, am I not a Chargers fan?
    He said the Chargers have to improve Special Teams... I guess the Chargers dont have any fans because EVERYONE has said that!
    He said the Chargers have to watch out for the trick plays. I agree...

    So what in the heck makes that post deserving of attack by other 'Chargers fans'? I see nothing that warents the responses he has gotten. If this is how we are going to greet new, or seldomly posting people, that is a sad commentary on us as a collective group IMO... And no, I dont think I am an example of how to not argue or fight in the interwebs. Just voicing my observed opinion....

    for the record, my post was just a scoff at the Broncos being "for real"/excuse to reference the Big Bang Theory. I would have posted the same no matter who posted the thread.

    i agree with Conc that the troll accusations are unwarranted and seemingly came out of nowhere.
