The art of being wise, doing wiser things and not hurting a Chelsea fan

I posted something yesterday that I expected to be more or less a neutral posting, but it didn't turn out the way I expected. The comments will prove it. I am biased, Bulshee is biased, Ragav is biased, Sankaran is biased , even US.KONDU(name changed to keep anonymity) who doesn't care anything in this world beyond the tax and duties implemeted on liquor and cigarattes is biased more or less on his way. I being a die-hard Arsenal fan(self proclaimed) can never maintain more neutrality when I write or talk about Chelsea. There are many facts that everyone knows. I don't want to drive myself into yet another controversy that result in a debate between me and three men army of my roomies, which I may(intentionally made bold) end up losing.
It was Sankaran who advised me not to post anything that may hurt or aggrieve somebody's beliefs. Sankaran really had a terrible experience for posting something that really caused an upset on Bulshee's feeling. It was one great day in Sankaran's life. There are many more in the list.
What I want to tell is neither about Sankaran's beliefs nor the feud between an Arsenal fan and Chelsea fans, but about the right to expression. I can write anything I want. I may agitate a few, but I can't or I never will agitate millions like L.K.Advani.
Here is something that happened to a girl(in fact Rashmi Bansal) for writing something against an institution which is declared fraud by some magazines .Some comments in that blog are totally unacceptable. Criticisms are good, it will improve a person's outlook regarding that subject. It doesn't mean they are against you, it means they are against your views.
No matter what, you may feel some satisfaction if you do something out from your mind which is against someone's beliefs. I love those debates in which I try my best to classify Arsenal are the best and my friends try to do the same to Chelsea. I have got some points to make and so do they. If you believe in something, believe only if you have a reason. Don't take anything for granted. You should be able to prove your point before everyone who questions you. But always make a point, never write anything about a person if you feel it may hurt him bad. It may make things worse.
It all started when I described Mourinho as a "young punk" and an anonymous commented on calling Mourinho a young punk and aggravating my feelings of being a gunner and the frustration of not winning a trophy for the last two years. But I still describe Mourinho as a young punk. :-)

HEY!How come I'm biased!!!
I have as much as an opinion on the EPL and football as Kondu has on tee totalarism and non-smoking!!

Unfair sayin that I'm biased!

raghav said...

he he .. yeah even I enjoy those sessions .. abt being biased .. We have to defend our club no matter what .. But agree that Bringing in Arsenal in the chelsea v/z ManU context was wrong ! :D

Gunner said...

check the previous post and find who brought the arsenal into it

Thanku said...

You know what ...we can speak a lot of things againt chelsea..but we have the results to cover it up...Arsenal we can speak a lot of good things...but finally they don't win matches...So the discussion is not going to end....What ever you call morinjo "punk " it doesn't matter..finally they may end up winning epl , champion league and fa cu...and arsenal may end up finishing 5th and getting out of champions league...so no point in discussion...hey if results are thr .. no matter what the path is...thats what is told in bhagavatgeetha :) ...

Gunner said...

@thanku:if the results are what that matters then why did juventus, ac milan etc was charged. they tried to achieve result in another way. I started supprotin arsenal when i saw them playing, unlike you. You started supporting cheslsea only for the last 3years when u saw big name signings. I never saw any chelsea fans before abramovich came.this is the last season of chelsea enjoying supremacy.
Liverpool are also gonna spend big money and three super class stars whose name are yet to be released are also coming to arsenal. Its gonna be a "New Firm" like the old firm in Scottish league

Bullshee said...

my question hasnt been answered yet!!!!
How come I'm in the biased section????!!!

Gunner said...

@bulshe:::not in terms of football bulshee,not in terms of football.

Your friendly neighbourhood psychopath said...

bullsheee u biased bastard.... u ve also had a bias.... u always prefer kondu to anyone else... u ve set ur malicious eyes on that saintly soul - kondu......
@gunner: i am a chelsea fan too n i agree i became one after all the big signings... but after all them stars came in the game improved n so i became a chelsea fan.... isnt that the way it works??? u like watching good teams doing what they do best - entertain u..... anyways the next 2 months r gonna be great : its gonna be young lion v/s old lion..... gooooooooo bluesssssssss..... :)
@gunner : neutral qn... btw manu n chelsea whom do u support???

Gunner said...

@psychopath::the answer is obvious, i love to see chelsea losing, even it doesn't happen every time. They get a goal somehow in the last second and win it.

Your friendly neighbourhood psychopath said...

thats the sign of a true fighter my friend.... fight till the end n then strike the lethal blow at the last moment....strike it where it will hurt the opponent the most.... the opponents fight to the end n when they think they ve managed to hold the mighty blues at bay, chelsea finishes off its opponents with a match winner.... to hit a last minute goal is not as easy as it seems.... u ve to stay focussed till the end n the blues r good at it..... :)

Gunner said...

@@psycho::thats luck it doesn't happen every time. why they were not able to do it at top 4 teams. so it is luck. does they lack the killer instinct against liverpoo or arssenal or manchester

XioniX said...

he he... cant believe this... actually looks like you have a softer side

wow... that's somethin i never thot i did c... :)

raghav said...

hmm . speaking of last minute goals .. remember the Essien goal !!! as far as I remember it was after 80 min ! and it was a scorcher .. no luck in that strike mate .. Arsenal was lucky that Lampard missed an open post in the last minute !!

and yeah I meant .. ME bringing in Arsenal was wrong .. not u!
cheers

Gunner said...

@raghav:he tried his luck from three yards out and he succeeded. Chelsea was unlucky to have missed the close range effort.
