    I signed up to ask for information about the football game this year since I am going.

    I figured I would ask them how they feel about Haith so I told the story about what happened in the stands the day we pummeled them by 35 in Gainesville.

    I wasn't trying to pick a fight, but these guys got pretty defensive. Immediately I was called a Jayhawk troll, etc. I guess some people do that on here.

    Anyone remember that game and Haith getting into it with the fans?

    Why are you such a *$#@^*# Jayhawk troll, Art?

    The people on the football thread have been very nice and funny.

    If you look at their threads, they are way too annoying to try to follow and also they have (nm) nm means no message on half of the messages because they only type a subject and nothing in the body.

    I hate the Jayhawks just like they do. If I am going to be a troll, I prefer to be a Pokie troll...

    I can't stand that style of forum, I refuse to follow any message board with that awful layout.

    Pretty funny stuff going on in that thread. They are really roasting me. Calling me beaker and calling the story BS. I was with akaGatorHoops that game so I know he remembers. Anyone else remember?

    I guess there would be posters on here doing the same if someone say something that made Donovan look bad.

    For the record, I'm not defending the Gator fan who was being a dbag. I remember telling him to shut up while he was heckling Haith. But Haith and his kid and the assistant were acting like real idiots also.

    They probably figured you were trying to start trouble about their coach. Our fans can be very testy with opposing fans too.

    A Troll by any other name remains a Troll.

    Think of people who come to the Florida boards and talk about the two huge losses to Ky in 2011/12 or to OSU this March.

    "Missouri getting testy."

    That is a little brutal. Did they leave the other one?

    Must be your undying loyalty to the Jayhawks head football coach. :grin:

    ...but in fairness, it would be called trolling here too.

    that was a fun game to be in the stands. lots of energy and the gators played really well. treat to be in the stands that day for sure. that's when the rowdies first did the mob dance too.

    I was behind the gator bench so I didn't see what all happened w/ haith. I would suggest he ignore the one or two hecklers you're bound to get in the sec.

    Agreed. I think Art probably should have posted a few "softballs" showing respect for Mizzou before diving into that story. They've got to know a new poster has good intentions before they'll trust him. Their reaction doesn't surprise me at all. If a Mizzou fan had posted something similar about Billy and our staff on NBN, I'd have become defensive immediately.

    Probably true. I don't get all up in arms about "trolls" or people that make negative comments towards the Gators (if there is truth involved) I would engage in conversation and ask why and see if there was any truth to what they are saying. I'm certainly a Gator homer, but don't think everything is great and we never do wrong.

    Looks like one of their own was at the game and posted so. His version is a little different probably because he is from Mizzou. The Gator fans were definitely over the top, but I think merciless is a little much...

    This actually did happen (sort of)

    It is true that there was a Florida fan acting like a complete classless idiot, and that Cory Haith was frustrated and in tears because this idiot was being merciless on him and his father. I did not see Haith or anyone on our staff "threaten" anyone, although they did summon a security person who asked the guy to calm down.
