I'm guessing that the main reason PFan has such acrimony for the Braves is that they are divisional rivals with the Phillies. I personally see no reason to dislike the Braves. Sure, they were great for a long stretch of the 90s, but at least they accomplished that with solid pitching and management rather than simply a bloated, mercantilist payroll like the Yankees.

I don't like them because when they're winning their fans still don't come out and because they have frontrunning fans. At least Yankees fans fill the ballpark.

I don't have the same dislike of the other three NL East teams, though Florida is a close second because their fanbase is also pretty sad. You could say their ownership has something to do with it, but then look at the Heat's attendance.

The Heat's attendance is fine. They sell their games out. People are just notoriously, disrespectfully late. But I think that's because the 'Big-3' craze in Miami ended up putting the tickets in the wrong hands.

Not only do they not sell all their games out, they don't even sell all their playoff games out.

No one is questioning your dedication to your teams, as you are most certainly a dedicated, educated fan, but Miami is just a terrible sports city. There's just not very many dedicated fans in that area.

You know that track Paradise? Coldplay are just 4 guys who don't find that song annoying. There must be others who feel that way too. Do you think U2 find that track annoying seeing as many people think that Coldplay imitate U2'S music?

wholeheartedly.

In fact, X&Y >>>>> King of Limbs

Limbs was just pure crap. Save for Codex and Lotus Flower.

I deeply disagree. While I consider King of Limbs to be a weaker Radiohead album I still prefer it over that boring crap that IMO is the latest Coldplay album a thousand times. I didn't even bother to get tickets for their upcoming shows. I really tried to like the album but I can't. Paradise is so annoying. And a lot of stuff on the album is just mediocre. Now that I think about it I believe Coldplay's best work was long ago, I didn't even like Viva La Vida.

X&Y's best 2 songs are better than anything on KoL... besides Codex. And I don't think Codex beats out Talk for me.
But that's just me. (prerequisite opinion clarification)

I have the same sentiments.

About why Coldplay's album is better than Radiohead's (preserving the boring, removing the 'crap').

Well, they are those people out there who purchased the track aren't they? They wouldn't find it annoying. They like Paradise
