    First Post Insiders

    I've seen at least 3 new users who claim to be insiders. What do you all think?

    I tend to believe them. Maybe this is the type of thing that is serious enough to make current/former players and/or friends/family talk about their problems. Maybe I'm just hungry for some solid information on this topic because we truly know so little. The majority are heaping the blame on Wes, which may be valid, but maybe its true that there is a problem in the coaching staff? We simply do not know.

    It's not like I'm a super-veteran to this site, and I have never posted any insider information (wish I had some!). And I certainly don't want to alienate new posters.

    Thoughts appreciated from those new and old to this site......

    Re: First Post Insiders

    Let me just say that there are legitimate insiders here, and many that are not "vetted". They may very well be insiders, but until we know they aren't pulling our chain, I am skeptical. There are plenty of users, past and present, that enjoy seeing the masses fall for their schtick.

    Re: First Post Insiders

    I like the perspective of those few first time posters to CF claiming to be insiders. These "insiders" have alot of enthusiasm while sharing information (mostly negative about the coaching staff). I appreciate the "inside information" so far, but I do take it with a grain of salt.

    Exactly. Some of these new "insiders" remind me of tycobb and 186 (?) and their antics. I can't think of his name, but he hated MacCarney, and him and Brianhos got into it all the time...

    I believe the record of first time posters who claim to be "insiders" is pretty dismal, accuracy and veracity-wise.

    Here are the bball sources I trust:
    1. kg-cyclone: Has he ever been wrong?
    2. Cyfan13: You might disagree w/ her personally, but she has good info.
    3. Knownothing: He has some good info to.
    4. Jeremy
    5. CyismydogI personally, can't think of any other "insiders" that I actually believe.

    Re: First Post Insiders

    I tend to get the impression that I should be impressed by their intensity and inflammatory language. Most people that try that in conversation or other interaction with me tend not to be real accurate, but rather using that approach to create an emotional response that covers for their lack of real knowledge. (Yes, I know a guy at work that does that all the time.)

    Cyismydog, you have been pretty accurate as well, I would trust your info. Thats a pretty good list, I am sure there are a few more too, but at the most about 7-8 people with inside info that I trust.

    I wish I had inside info

    Instead of barking at the wind, perhaps it is time to reach in the back of that medicine cabinet and take a Chill Pill.

    Give yourself some more credit there Cyismydog.... I know some of where you get your info, but you really dig for stuff. I like the dedication for the team...

    I think this is a good list. We all know their sources and they are credible. They don't go out of their way to bash people, they just lay the facts out.

    Even though I do get mad at Cyfan13 on the aspect of the basketball is a job thing, I do respect her and like to hear her angle.

    If you are new.. Please either tell a moderator your source, which they wont go telling everyone else, or give us at least some info that would make you an insider.

    I'll admit I know alot about recruiting right now because my fiance's cousin plays AAU for Martin Bro's, and he knows about every HS player in the state and were they are thinking for college. Including a Mr. Harrison Barnes. Even with that, I really won't discuss much unless I know he is dead on certain about stuff.

    And I will admit that isn't much for insiders info. Just a good source for minor info. Plus he is really good friends with Doug McDermott. (Greg's son)

    Who's barking??? I think people are just asking an honest question on who to trust.
