Perspective is everything!

per·spec·tive a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.

In recent days and weeks we have seen the franchise that many of us have spent our lifetime loving become the laughing stock of the country. During that time I have also seen the overall attitude around here go to hell and people start to go after one another like we are about to start the second civil war. At the end of the day we all have to remember that we do still root for the same team and hope for the same outcome. Of course where we differ among other things is how we think this thing, this total mess should be fixed.

I would love it if everyone would stop and remember before commenting something rude or making some childish personal attack that this is a game. This is a hobby that while we all love is NOT life or death. We all have family and friends and a life outside of this site and outside of being a Dolphins fan. Sure it sucks at times but it should not be the thing that shifts your mood to such a level that you are depressed or become combative. I think we are all guilty of being snarky every now and then myself included but some take it too far and if every comment you make is rude or overly aggressive for no reason other then your deep seeded desire to be right then it is probably going to get called out by me or Kevin or one of the other designated mods on the site.

Keeping with the perspective line of thinking I am not really sure why this whole Martin/Incognito thing has become what it has become. There are tens of thousands that have lost their lives in recent days due to the monster typhoon in the Pacific and millions more that are now at risk and we have the media making this a focus? Its a news story, I get that but it should not be a lead on my own local news when I live in the DFW area. We like every other major metro area have so many big issues and yet they want to talk about what may or may not have happened between two football players in Miami? Perspective please!

Please just remember before hitting the post button that this is just a game, not life or death and not really that important in the scheme of things. Go in the other room and look at your wife or husband, girlfriend or boyfriend, kids, hell even your dog and remember that there are things that trump any loss that the Phins might take. Perspective is everything!
