    "***OFFICIAL***" threads getting out of hand (unofficially)

    Anybody else feel this way? Just bothers me. Seems like people make them to replace other existing threads, too, which is pointless.

    I'm not necessarily saying they should all go away, but can anything be done about this before we have ten ***OFFICIAL*** threads in a row? We are getting to the point where we will have an ***OFFICIAL Spring Football Long Snapper Discussion*** thread and others like it.

    Yeah it's not necessary. I don't mind it for the game day threads but there's too many. It doesn't bother me a whole lot though.

    This thread is not official. It is about the "***OFFICIAL***" thread epidemic. You misinterpreted the title.

    I disagree. Now, I no longer spend countless hours trying wade through the unofficial threads. I can go straight to the official ones. No muss, no fuss.

    Everyone who wants to make a new thread should create a new thread asking CyFan61 if it's ok.

    So if this thread isn't official, we really don't need to listen to it. Excellent.
