    Dividing the fan base...

    I was on the bandwagon to keep wayne, but the fan base was divided and in the end it would have never worked. Right now the fan base is divided and it will never work unless we win. That being said GMAC has had four years to win and we are not getting better, in fact we might be getting worse in my opinion. GMAC has done this to himself, all he had to do is win and be a solid coach and the support would have followed. He dug his own grave and now both GMAC and the fans are living it. I wish it could have gone differently because he was hired to win and make us proud.

    Yesterday i posted my potential head coaching candidates and the post kept getting moved into the post game thread. It had nothing to do with the post game thread. It warranted its own discussion.I even got a one day ban from posting on this site. It was lifted less than twelve hours later. I do not fault Chris with anything that happens on this site and respect him completely.

    I agree I liked Morgan as well. Ill let the rest of the season play out before I get on the fire McD bandwagon. I would love to have this team with Morgan as the coach.


    Hooray for Metaphors!

    ultimately you are a guest on this website, and the ownership/management (moderators) can do as they wish. I have no idea what your thread contained, or why you were banned, but ultimately, this website is private property.

    And, when you say the fanbase is 'divided' on Mickey D, that infers something like 50/50.....I bet the fanbase isn't so divided.

    I've been trying to get banned for years! Nice job.

    I hate these "look at me threads". Man up.

    You want an apology from the mods for kicking you off a message board?!? For twelve hours?!? I don't think the mods are the sensitive ones...

    Re: Dividing the fan base...

    It is just the principal, that is all. By the way i would just like someone to come up with some constructive criticism. It was just my opinion and i am not going to lose any sleep over it. I am sure it is not the first and last time this will occur on this website.

    Visanthe Shiancoe just called:

    “OK, we apologize. I’m sorry. Better?”

    This thread is about the equivalent of you announcing to the entire restaurant, still drunk, that your friend cut you off at the bar last night and demanding he apologize.
    Take it to a PM.

    Re: Dividing the fan base...

    This site, post-big loss, has a tendency of getting very frantic and cluttered from people who probably just need to step away and breathe for a little bit. LOTS and LOTS of threads have a tendency of popping up, many of which would indeed be just fine in the post-game thread. As a result, the site can get unreadable rapidly - which was probably the justification used for moving your thread(s). If you posted your list the next day, it would probably have a much better chance of survival

    That said, calling out the mod staff publicly like this is probably a really bad idea, since it's very likely the leading cause of ban-hammer on this site. If you've got an issue with a mod, the best course of action is to discuss it with either him/her or site management privately.
