    Lowering the boom

    I'm disappointed to see how clones fans on here treat Boomer, and "insiders" in general.

    I post consistently at a Miami Dolphins site that has some solid insiders. They drop nuggets about the draft, injuries, etc. Sometimes they're right....sometimes they're wrong. But consistently, we know that they are insiders. Insiders get used by the machine sometimes, sometimes they're right, but things change. They should not however have to worry about getting gang jobbed because they are wrong.

    Understand that Boomer is doing you a favor by posting here. He was wrong sometimes, but he was right a lot too. He was the first to say that OU was unhappy with Texas when A&M was leaving, he may get specifics wrong and have a pro-OU stance....but he's a fan. He's entitled.

    Without people like Boom, this would be another lame board with people that only have opinions. Take what he says, or leave it. But y'all should lay off him a bit.

    Re: Lowering the boom

    I agree. CF chases off a lot of people - posters go into attack mode whenever someone claims to have a "source."

    Right or wrong, why the attacks? CF is a great site partly due to its diversity (fewer Hawks would be nice tho).

    Re: Lowering the boom

    If all you've seen is Boomer's posts on this site, i see why you might have this opinion. If you've followed his twitter, you'd see why so many on this site dont like him anymore. Does he have some sources at OU? Yes. Did he make a whole lot of **** up? Yes. Was he a complete ********* throughout much of the process? Yes.

    As I recall, it seemed as though he gave ISU the ole cleaveland steamer more than once.

    I've seen his twitter, and choose not to follow it. Like I said, he's a fan and is entitled. He's refrained from trotting around our board with the stuff he posts on twitter. For the most part, he's Ben pretty pro on our board.....which is more than I can say for a lot of the responses he's received.

    If he were here preaching the superiority of OU, I might agree. But he hasn't. He's been pretty respectful and actually complimentary to our school. There's no need for the knows he's taken.

    Re: Lowering the boom

    Honestly, when people talk flippantly about something that affects not only our athletic programs (which are many CFer's main hobby) but our university in general (which is many CFer's alma mater), they are running the risk of drawing some ire. I remember last summer when Jon Miller was talking about how exciting the whole thing was. He got pasted here. And he apologized for that tone when it was pointed out to him. Just because the topic of conversation has no direct bearing on you personally, it doesn't mean that it does not have a major effect on others...especially here.

    Boomer's a good poster, but he probably should know how OU's flirtation with the P12 and the way he talked about it would anger people here.
