I've been a Blazer fan since I've been a fan of pro basketball, and I've been on the site since 2004. So there have been Blazer fans since at least that time, and most likely since long before. I think it's silly to say you didn't think there were Blazer fans on the board, but like you've pointed out -- it's your thread to do with as you please.
I tend to agree with Vancem that Gin is a little overly-critical of Oden, and for reasons that I don't quite grasp. However, I admit I am a homer when it comes to the Blazers, so my opinion about Oden isn't objective either.
Just because we disagree about something doesn't mean we have to be uncivil to one another. Not blaming anybody, just making an observation.
