    Recruit Worship

    The avatar changing, the Twitter stalking, the 1000 page threads. Can we please cut this out from now on? These are 18 year olds we are talking about. They're making a decision for their life, and the obsession with it is ridiculous. It's sick. Stop enabling it.

    I can tell that right now you are in good mind and thinking level headed. It is best for people like you to log off CF for a few days - I may join you!

    Re: Recruit Worship

    People just get excited about the possibilities of said recruit joining the program. I get it. What I don't get is why people get spiteful after the recruit chooses someone else. At least RV gave us a fair chance for his services.

    Just like everyone thought Harrison Barnes walked on water until Skype-Gate, then he was a piece of crap to the masses.

    Re: Recruit Worship

    Maybe this is why most schools have paid message boards. It keeps the public from seeing how crazy they really are.

    Twitter is great to get news. It's just too bad there are so many idiots out there that feel they can tweet any insult or derogatory comment to anyone without consequence

    Re: Recruit Worship

    Seems like a crybaby thread to me. CF is CF. and the avatars were a joke, get a sense of humor or continue crying. Your choice really.

    Re: Recruit Worship

    I see it as having fun and being excited about the program. Where it gets silly is when people lose their minds and get derogatory when a recruit turns another way. That would happen with or without a big thread.

    Also of note- 95% of that thread is unrelated banter.
