I actually come here to read the comments as many of the poster have interesting information and points of view. You have the "mute" button to take care of trolls. And many of the articles only give information of things that we fans already know - nothing new. You're taking away a vital part of this site because of personal over-sensiblity and not taking into account what the readers think. Did you take a poll to see what your readers want? Or is this some sort of authoritarian move to control criticism !!! You might want to look in the mirror before imposing your personal interpretation on those that contribute to the "success" of this site.And:
Check back in a month and tell us how many hits you've lost. I for one, will now look at other possibilities where I can share views with fellow fans.
i find it quite amusing the reasons for this decision. the double standard is so apparent. for instance, there have been many troy smith stories about rappers. included in the stories are links to play the rap music. of course anyone could click on those rap links to hear the hateful abusive lyrics complete with the n word. and that was ok yet you censor many times opposing views and information that goes against the agenda. no rules were broken other than the truth triggered some buttercup. this is why people aren't trusting the main stream media
