A holes vs Trolls. or The Birth Of A-Hole On The Internet

I've come to realize in the past few days that there's a difference between trolls and a-holes. Trolls just say things to get attention. A-Holes make things personal. Like my interaction with New England Patriot fans recently.

And if it ended there, I would actually be okay. Unfortunately I had another interaction with someone else. This is on a whole other spectrum.

Before I post it, I want to say that my response isn't the best. I'm clearly pissed off. Perhaps I stooped to his level. I might even have crossed a line. And quite frankly I don't care. I'm tired of being the Nice Guy On The Internet. If some people don't care, I won't care either.

So let me introduce you to the new graphic for A-Holes On The Internet.

While on Facebook last night, I saw an article wear Batman V. Superman director Zack Snyder critcized Marvel for having Flavor Of The Month comic book movies, directed at the character Ant-Man. I have not seen Ant-Man so I wasn't defending the movie. I was simply pointing out a fact. Below you will see my original comment attacking me personally (once again) for no reason as well as my responses.

Sure there's freedom of speech at work here, except for the biggest problem in Rohan's comment. I'm straight! Not to mention I didn't insult Aqua-Man. Did I? Is he not usually the butt of super hero jokes? Just stating the obvious.

Like I said, perhaps the terrorist comments were uncalled for. But quite frankly he deserves it. There is no room in this world for gay bashing. I support equal rights for gay and straight and I don't believe that calling someone that word is ever appropriate. But then again, I don't go picking fights on the internet either.

Here's why I hate New England fans

In an article Bleacher Report posted about the headsets issues the Steelers had last night in New England, another idiot went and made a comment about Ben Roethlisberger. As a Steeler fan, I do not condone what happened. He supposedly sexually assaulted a woman that ultimately didn't press charges. That says one of two things to me. He did it and they settled out of court. Or Two he didn't do it and she was just looking for a free hand out. We will never know if it's true or not.

But... some people just assume the worst in people, so back to my original point. (You will have to excuse me because right now I am beyond livid. You will see why soon). This conversation is edited as I took out the comments that are not important to the story.

So here I, Jeff Trelewicz, am using the law as my argument. Ben WAS not tried. Was not convicted. Any team that had Aaron Hernandez on their team when he murdered Odin Lloyd should not be damning a man. Plus Hernandez was involved in two other murders "ALLEGEDLY "*wink wink nudge nudge*.

Because Ben was never tried, never convicted he got a contract extension because he deserved it. I guess some people don't deserve second chances in the eyes of Rob Kinville. Because that man is A SAINT.

And this would be all well and good if this where the argument ends. It is not. I give you this wonderful human being:

That's right. For me simply stating facts, Airik Smalls made this comment. So feel free to find this guy online and tell him what an ass he is if you see him. And Michael Balch, evidence? Or was that evidence erased on Tom Brady's cellphone when he destroyed it.

The Tom Brady Issue

My other pages all have logos that I have designed, so I guess I should make one for this. On a future blog I will but instead I'm going to jump right in.

By now you have all heard that Tom Brady's four game suspension has been removed by a court of law. This blog is not about Tom Brady (though I will write one soon). This blog IS about the fans that support him and his team. Most of my future blog posts are going to be about assorted issues. Not this one.

Now I understand standing behind your team through thick and thin. But some of the comments that I have seen in the past few hours are beyond ridiculous.

For example, there's this one:

I have seen posts like this a few times in scouring different sites. I personally am trying to wrap my head around it. I even commented to one of them to explain it a little further. But I have yet to get an answer. Nothing to me says this is a story about the color of one's skin or the amount of money in his bank account. It probably has more to do with there wasn't enough (or any, depending on your view point) evidence to say he was directly involved.

And then there's this wonderful comment:

We have all seen hashtags like this lately. #BlacklivesMatter #WhiteLivesMatter #CopsLivesMatter. It's been used socially to protest the senseless murders that have occurred in the last year. For someone to turn it around like this is just plain dumb. Brady's life was never in question. People are dying. Balls have been deflated. Apparently to Correll Jenkins they are the same damn thing.

But here's someone who doesn't think anyone's lives matter:

Dear Tutu Udeh. It's just a game! I hope you know that. Again, I understand loyalty to your team but to tell haters to kill themselves just proves what a classy fan you are. And to further his point he had not one, not two but three gun emojis. Did you perhaps borrow those guns from former New England Tight End Aaron Hernandez? Stay classy!
