A new season is here, and the negativity around the New York Giants is running rampant. I can't blame anyone for that, or for how they feel. What I do need to do is remind you of the Community Guidelines around this place. Big Blue View is a community of fans who love the New York Giants where we look for mature, intelligent and friendly discussion about the Giants and football in general. Be mature, be respectful of other's opinions and have something to say that advances the discussion. If
No Vulgarity & Profanity: There is no place for either here.
Be Respectful: THIS IS THE BIG ONE! No personal attacks. No name-calling. Attack the post or comment, not the poster. If you are going to post an opinion, people are allowed to disagree with it.

Trolling: You represent Big Blue View when you are visiting another site, and that your behavior reflects on our community.
