Whereas some act properly, others take their fonction a bit too seriously. They find it amusing to lock other member's thread and it's almost like a competition to see who locks the fastest. Moderators, you should calm down a little bit, this is just a website.
I imagine that here at Club Lakers, we value freedom of expression, so I hope this tread won't get locked.
Does anyone agree with me?

Certain threads have a certain tone, you can tell they're just to vent or negative or overreacting and those are the kinds that get locked because there's a thread for that kind of thing. But I notice that other threads that discuss legit concerns of the team in a more specific or well thought out manner stay open.
For example you have a thread like 'Is Odom disinterested' or 'What happened to Ariza's jumpshot' or a thread about Bynum's play and those stay open. They discuss specific points, about Odom, about Ariza's shot, about Bynum's defense or whatever. Then you have threads like 'Odom sucks', 'Kurt Rambis sucks', 'Our defense sucks', 'We suck the sky is falling' and so forth. Those type of threads I see getting locked because there aren't points, it's just stuff like 'Odom sucks, he's dumb and I hope we trade him'. Where does the discussion go from there, how is that a productive thread? There's a thread for venting like that, no need to have tons of those cluttering the board.
I'll end by saying I don't see anyone finding it amusing to lock threads, and nobody is competing to lock faster, that's just silly. I don't want to lock any threads, I doubt anybody WANTS to lock threads, just needs to be done. I also don't see any more locking going on here than normal so I don't get why we've had 2 of these type of threads in the past month or so.
wongy wrote:Gotta agree with poster on this one Weezy.. you just locked a genuine citique I wrote on where the Lakers lack compared to the Celts and Cavs and you call it 'complaining,whining and moaning"? What makes you the expert on what an honest critique is compared to meaningless whining? Just because you don't agree with the opinions of another and you hate it when the Lakers get criticized, doesn't give you the right to condemn.. so now we can't even express honest critique for the better of the team?? Somethings not right with that man...
and that is PASSION. The reason that they are so successful is that each and every player comes out to play each and every night and more importantly, each minute of every game. I watched the first half of tonights game and turned it off.. DISGUSTING.. their attitudes suck like they don't care and even PJ doesn't seem to give a d***N about it either. Even if the Lakers do win tonight against a team that they should be destroying, it's still going to be less than impressive. It's constantly the same problem! We have too many players out there who are just out there to play for a check. The only ones with any type of steady heart are Kobe, Sasha and Trevor. The Celts are playing at a Championship pace and right now they really do deserve it. if the finals were to be played tomorrow, we would be gutted 4-0.... yeah, yeah, yeah, it's early in the season, we got a good record and all that junk, but it's just frustrating to see the same problems occurring time and time again and believe me, it's not going to be nearly enough when we have to face the likes of powerhouse teams.. look at what happened against the Pistons and they're not even at the level of the Celts and Cavs.. watch how the Celts and Cavs are winning.. the majority of them are blow outs... we should be doing the same with our talent but there's something that just isn't motivating this team to excel on a nightly basis.. i guess it has to fall on the Lakers chosen GURU??? a major light needs to be lit under their butts to make them realize that they can't just lollygag through the season and expect to win in the post season.
