Nope, not necessarily controversial, but it's also something you're offering here in less than fully good faith.The Bucks sucked in the first quarter. Is that a controversial statement?
Attitudinally, your initial phrasing sucked, and it aged poorly.
Then you floated an attempt to gaslight by way of a sneaky reframe, and now you've attempted some repair in response to an earnest walkthrough, where @HooperScooper had the maturity to check his assumptions.
Generally speaking, considerate people don't communicate like this when they are among presumed allies in an affinity group, in this case fellow UConn fans. You operate contrary to this polite convention with recognized regularity, and overall little inclination to respond with something like, "Yeah, I jumped the gun on that one. It was, in sum, a pretty awesome game," which was fully available to you, and a better fit for what you & I both witnessed.
Other folks here are briefer and less analytical when they write, "You do you." They're not really being more supportive of you when they do that. The kindest I can come up with is that you might be too bound to your brand-building to 'play nicer' with others.
