PR, Don't take things so personal. you stated your opinion and I stated mine. That is what a message board is. You don't have to get so mad when someone doesn't agree with everything you say about Days.
The reason I list Bope is because from what I see they could very easily be replaced by anyone in the DiMera story. They are not key players. The role that they are fulfilling can be completed by anyone at this point. I know that the Ireland stuff is more personal than anything else, but to me they are just not key to the story. They are on, but they just aren't that important to the overall thing.
That is my biggest problem with the Dimera/Brady story as I have said so many times. This feud between the DiMera's and the Bradys has been going on since 1983 - 24 years now. The principal players throughout it all have been John, Roman, Bo, Hope, Marlena, Stefano, and Tony/Andre with Abe, Lexxie, Maggie, Mickey, Doug, Julie, Don Craig and others thrown in at various points. Even at one point when Tony teamed up with Tony she was briefly involved.
I do not want a story that centers on Stefanos obsession with Marlena or even Hope or Marlena being kidnapped again, but I want them to have an important role in the story. A role that will have a long term affect on them. This is the big culmination of verything that has gone on for 24 years on the show. And right now the principal players are like afterthoughts in the story. Sure Bo & Hope are seen alot but unless something big happens soon they are just investigating a case at this point - at least that is how it seems to me. And it shouldn't feel that way.
And one last comment. Maybe it is different for you but I don't post to try and convince anyone of anything. I post my opinion. I don't post with the express thought of changing anyones mind. I state how the story appears to me. I read someone elses thoughts and then explain what I see in connection to that.
I care about Days but as far as anyone else I don't feel like it is my place to convince them of anything. I think everyone on here are adults and can make up their own minds. Just my thought anyway.
Now if someone like Rick asks the question about what show they should pick up or should not pick up, then yes I would try to swing them to a certain point, but I don't set out with the goal of changing anyone's opinion or making them feel a certain way about Days when I post in threads. I just post for the discussion.
I agree with pretty much everything you said in this Steve.
I am one of those people who actually isn't upset at all, and is actually happy, that Alison Sweeney/Sami are front and center in this thing because I think it's her time but I do wish that someone besides Sami and EJ were shown having a real emotional investment in all of this. And I don't think they've done a very good job at all of demonstrating how this feud has emotionally impacted anyone besides Sami and EJ.
