    3 threads

    Why do we need 3 threads to discuss the same thing.

    pregame
    game
    postgame thread.

    Its all on the same topic.

    Re: 3 threads

    Good question.

    You should have put it in all caps, so we could say you were melting down about the number of threads.

    Re: 3 threads

    Why don't we just have one thread for the entire season?

    It was a compromise. Some want a new tread for everything. Some want one large one.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    All good points need their own thread, otherwise no one will see them, or worse yet the proper person won't get credit for their thought. duh.

    It's also a little easier to moderate if you don't have to wade through a bunch of posts.

    Re: 3 threads

    I guess I thought threads were to be started based on topic. So no matter what your topic is, if its something different than an one started it should be ok.


    Maybe thats why our threads are impossible to follow because it is random opinions on 100 topics all jammed into one.... anyway just my 2 cents.

    I know this has probably been argued over many of times.

    Yeah, there's not one real great answer on this...some prefer it one way, others prefer it the other.

    It lets game time meltdown to be moved to the last page...the meltdowns are almost over as we have accepted defeat...look at the betting board...

    I love when someone starts a thread about too many threads.

    I agree. Take it a step further....why not have one thread for each coaching regime? Each decade?

    The reason separate threads are needed is because some of us don't like wading through a bazillion pages of posts in each thread.

    So a fourth thread about the other three isn't a little redundant?

    My point exactly. I dont care if we have 100000 threads. Keep them by topic and its easier to follow. You can pick and choose what you want to read about easier.

    Just makes sense to keep things topic related together.

    Orginazition. So I dont have to sort thought 20 pages of game thread to see the post game comments. So we can have a clear game thread. It is sad that some think they need to start the game thread 12 hours before a game just to get the credits.
