I've been a Clemson sports fan since November 24th 1962, and if that doesn't make me a real Clemson fan, well then I'll probably never be a real fan, or love any College sports team, or be a real fan of anything.
But I do personally like Judge Keller, and even though I don't always agree with some of his opinions about coach Brownell, I do respect Judge Keller regardless of his opinions of a coach of any sport. I also personally believe that Judge Keller loves Clemson, and that he is a true hard core Clemson sports fan.
When people will bash another person bc their opinions aren't the same opinions as their own, it is possible those types of people have a problem with anyone's opinion that are different than their own, but, that actually don't make them bad people if, they're not bashing the people whos opinions are different than they're own.
If you asked 100 people to look up at a cloud in the sky, then ask them to describe what that cloud resembles to them, and have them to write on a sheet of paper what that cloud looks like to them, how many of those 100 people do you think would say the same thing. 10, less than 10, or maybe more than 10. I'm going to say that there would be a bunch of different opinions on what that cloud resembles to them, but it don't make any of them wrong to have a difference of an opinion. That is what opinions are, and a different opinion don't make someone right or wrong, it only means that their opinion is different than others are!!!
Yes the world has lost their tolerance of having educated conversations. I do not mind listening to some folks that I may know I disagree with. Sometimes I am just curious as to how they draw their conclusions. Everyone does not see the world or Clemson basketball the same. Everyone has an opinion and how you react to a difference of opinion says a lot about a person to me. I will agree to disagree on a lot of things to maintain a friendship. Just like Keller trying to give us the Brownell is a good Coach spill. Interesting to hear his spin but in the end I just do not believe it. I do believe JK is a die hard fan no doubt. Learn to appreciate differences of opinion may cause yourself a little less grief.
