Stockholm Syndrome

All this animosity at CSC we've been having...all this un-necessary name-calling and sensitivity...just the plain boredom that has overcome us. Well I've figured it out! It's a form of stockholm syndrome. Not really the full definition of the phenomenon, but an NFL lockout version of it. Come with me while we look into the relationship of the lockout and my diagnosis of what's going on...and maybe, just maybe we can get through this...together!

 The Dictionary.com definition (welcome to the 21st Century) of Stockholm Syndrome is as follows:

the psychological tendency of a hostage to bond with, identify with, or sympathize with his or her captor

 So let's break this up and explore how this relates to our symptoms:

"the psychological tendency"- They're getting in our heads...our minds...poisoning us by keeping what we love from us, therefore we're getting feisty with one another.

"of a hostage"- Who is the hostage here? We are! We are the Hostages!

"to bond with, identify with, or sympathize with his or her captor"- Now, who are the captors you ask? The NFL! That's who...they always say it's the ones you least expect...the one's you love that hurt you. And now look...look at what was happened!? We're not really sympathizing with them, but they are the cause of our recently found madness here at CSC and even the rest of the NFL world! (I've gone crazy enough to write a FanPost about the possibility of us getting Terrell Pryor for crying out loud!)

So..this might be a little far-fetched, it might not be the answer to what's going on here lately heck it might not even relate to Stockholm Syndrome, but like it's been said before (time after time),  we need to slow down and think before we post/comment. I'm guilty just as much as anyone when it comes to it, but let's try to:

1. Not call anyone derogatory names.

2. Not be too sensitive when someone gives you some sort of constructive critisism or feedback.

3. Just get out of this lockout alive, well, and friends civilized (we don't all have to be friends, but we do have to live with eachother, at least on this site)

Dr. GRiZZ's recommendation: Unfortunately Bruce Willis isn't here to save us this time...So let's all take 2 chill pills and comment again in the morning. If that still doesn't help...just look at this:
