You have no favorite boards.
being the angriest fan doesn't make you the "best" fan. posting the most outlandish things doesn't mean you care more. it means some combination of: you're an idiot, you can't control your temper, or you need to grow up. there is a group mentality on this board that "melting down" shows how much you care. that simply isn't true.
i'll freely admit that i bought into the "getting angry shows you care!" (i punched holes in walls over 25$ hands of online poker), and the "hating duke the most makes the best fan!" mindset (in the early 2000s i actually told people that i hoped coach K got cancer ... and meant it), and that i thought it was "cool" to post outlandish things ("if i saw a baby with NC state clothes on i would kick it in the face" was a famous MD2020Terp thread title after they were chosen for a better bowl than MD). those things didn't prove how much i cared, they demonstrated how much i needed to grow up.
