    Stop posting to other theads during the game

    My biggest pet peeve here....stop posting to other threads during games. We should be supporting the team. If I can't make the game, I use this as my talk to the guy next to me watching the game site. Having to see other people posting to scrabble or what ever just kills me when we are playing. Wait until the game is over.

    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    LOL...are you kidding me?

    Your from Urbandale...if your a real fan, you would have no excuss.

    If you can sit on your computer and post during the games, you can go to the games that are 40 miles away from you.

    Commercials are for posting about the game....watch the game don't post during play and post about it during the commercials...

    Re: Stop posting to other theads during the game

    btw, I gave up on that scrabble thing 3 days after it started!

    And I for one, am always on the Cyclone game thread during the game, but if it switches to commercial or halftime, I will go check out other threads that I am interested in because I hate stupid lame commercials like "take a right, take another right, take another right, take another right, Where are you taking me, oh Phillips 66!!!"

    Re: Stop posting to other theads during the game

    I'm really not sure it's all that great to tell other members how to use a free website, aside from following the rules and such.

    But that's just my opinion. And it's not like there was much activity on the site tonight other than the MBB thread. Most of the site was dead.

    I was really hoping with the end of this BB season would bring the end of this increased bickering about nothing. I see it hasn't.

    Oh well........

    Re: Stop posting to other theads during the game

    I don't know if you have heard of it but its called technology. You can have a laptop, bring it next to the TV and watch the game while posting. Its not that hard to do two things at once.

    Or, you know, you could just stay in the thread and hit "Refresh"...

    To each his own, I guess.
