It definitely makes sense. I'll try to be more positive about everything in life from now on, and I know that may come across as sarcastic, but it sincerely is not.

All of the players at Gonzaga are awesome, as is our coaching staff, I wouldn't cheer for any other school, ever.

I make respectful posts on this blog, because I do that in life. And my negative comments on here about players are almost always constructive criticism.

This thread suggests we become manipulative. It suggests we tailor our comments for how our recruits, players, and potential recruits will react. Changing other people is a nasty business, and some players might resent posters who are trying to lure them; they might prefer posters who are just themselves but polite. Some recruits would rather have the truth, than a positive spin, I believe. Just ask them.
