    Who cares...these threads aren't offensive in the least bit....these are legitimate fans concerned on how the team is being ran and have opinions on how it could run better....thats being a true fan...concerned about the good of one's team...i guess these moderators don't want to see the fans perspective.....if they would, they'd let these threads stay open....

    Re: Thread Moves

    this one will probably get closed to. Mods have been way to overly sensitive recently

    Or maybe people should just, you know, keep posting in the already going threads instead of thinking their opinion somehow happens to be more important. Some of these threads are humongous repeats.

    Two options:
    1. Start your own site.
    2. Go to a site where positive and negative are allowed.

    Thats not being a true fan. How old are the kids creating most of these threads that need instant gratification and think we should win every game?

    yes... keep posting in the already going threads, even if the posts theyre making are on completely separate topics?

    Id be happy to just win most of our games. Or not have our worst home loss in 7 years.

    Re: Thread Moves

    We need a place-we-can-go-to-blow-some-steam Forum. Like the politics cave, postings would be contained there, and not show up on the main page. Also, standards would be relaxed just a tiny bit so people can blow steam. (Still no personal attacks, vulgarity, language, etc...)

    The way things are going now, the mods tend to fuel the flames a bit, IMO.

    The problems aren't going away. We will likely be even worse next year, so anger will only increase, especially if McDermott stays. Better to contain it in one place, than to try to stamp it out, IMO.

    Re: Thread Moves

    Yeah, we need a place where we can go like...throws stuff. Yeah man...we gotta have a place where we can yell, scream and swear...that'll make it all better!

    Lame.

    The thread merge stuff has always been going on here, it's about keeping the board from being full of clutter.

    If you want to complain that it's been way over the top on chastising or ending threads that are even remotely critical of the team/coach/program - I'd agree. The trigger finger has been very happy and ya can't say anything bad without catching hell.

    But some of you just should grow up a bit - rants really don't do much.
