After negative results the extreme views on the negative side appear same as the extreme positive views appear when we string a couple of results together.
I think that's quite an interesting consideration.
A lot of the voices complaining about OTT negativity after a run of bad results were many of the same people telling people to calm down and stop being stupid when we were maybe getting a bit carried away with our form at the start of the season.
I'm certain everyone with a few functioning brain cells knew Hibs weren't going to win the league this year but if we are top of the league for 2 or 3 weeks then I'm damn sure I'm going to enjoy it and milk it whilst it lasts.
I don't think the board being a humdrum, middle of the road place would leave anyone happy really. A few extreme views here and there sparks discussion.

I personally found the 'challenging Celtc for 2nd place' chat to be just as weird as the 'Jack Ross, GTF' or 'we only win when we're lucky' stuff.
We're a slightly above average Premiership team that will have good and bad results, as well as good and bad performances.
We have players with both talent and flaws. If they had no flaws, they'd be playing at a much higher level.... and I refute any claims that opinion makes me unambitious for Hibs, or that my 'acceptance of mediocrity' (or whatever other barmy phrase is being used) is holding Hibs back in any way.
It can get OTT, irrational and ridiculous, like some calling for Ross to be sacked. But it happens everywhere. There are Jambos after Neilsonís head because they lost a cup final on pens and were beaten by Dundee. Football fandom isnít really meant to make sense.
Some cracking discussions on the go across a few threads today.
I see .net getting pelters at times but thereís some great chat on here today, good to see it.
Weirdly I agree. I know Iíve had a wee rant about some of the hyperbole on here but avoided the site for a couple of days after the Livi game and missed, it would seem, the usual suspects wanting to bask in as much misery as possible before vanishing but thereís actually a lot of decent discussion today.
For the record, I love any opportunity for a good discussion on Hibs. The site has been a haven often this year - in our household this year weíve had three bereavements, two threats of redundancy and the like and itís been a haven to enjoy the football and chat a couple of times a week. Itís almost been a part of maintaining sanity to have a chance to talk about something normal - and itís also why Iíve been more sensitive to the usual WUMs trying to one up each other.
But aye, lots of good on it in the majority and glad itís here. Itís a shame
to have to avoid it for a day or two if thereís a loss but it is what it is to some degree.
