FORUM POSTING RULES - Read before posting

Forum Rules.

(1) The guiding principle for posting in this forum is moderate yourselves.

(2) Don't write a post that attacks, impugns or denigrates another poster's character. There's an obvious difference between the language of humor and hateful, debased language. Know the difference and post accordingly.

(3) This is a Michigan sports forum. The forum welcomes posts from M's sports rivals. Talking smack, posting sass is what college sports rivalries are all about. Rules (1) and (2) above apply. If you don't want to view the posts of a rival talking smack or sassing, use the ignore feature in User Controls.

(4) This forum is about sharing thoughts, ideas and viewpoints about all sports, any number of subjects and issues, learning stuff from other posters and having fun. There are threads by subject matter within the forum for doing this. Keep the threads on point.

NB: The rules above are not intended to build a case to ban a poster. There are consequences for rule breaking as specified below. That's as far as it should go. Only the most egregious and persistent rule breaking would cause the moderators to consider a ban.

Due Process.

(1) The forum has 6 moderators. Jeff Buchanan, Jon, JD, Hannibal, Oracle, Entropy. None of them want to moderate adult posters who should know better. There may be posts that break the rules.

(2) Posters who, at the sole discretion of a moderator, break a rule will be given a warning post that will site one of the rules listed above as the reason for the deletion.

(3) If the rule breaking behavior continues, a moderator can remove an offending post and any ensuing post that whines about that action. If a moderator removes a post(s) the reason for the removal(s) will be posted with the removal notice that appears in the thread. This should be the end of it. Man up, take responsibility for breaking the rules. The forum moves on. If not, see below.

(4) A poster who has had a warning or a post(s) removed can certify a question by PM to any moderator about that action. Do not complain about the action or attempt to make your case in the forum/threads. Moderators shall do their best to address the question within 72h. At the end of 72h the majority opinion of the moderators responding will be the answer.

(5) Banning a poster for egregious and repeated rule breaking requires a unanimous vote to ban from all 6 moderators. We don't anticipate this will ever happen.

            I was just going pro.

            CFB is the best, imo.

            • College Football is the only sport I can think of that is better than 30 years ago.

                True ...... but characters like Dave Brandon, and he is not alone in this regard, have certainly tried to take a wrecking ball to it.

                The Conferences, the NCAA. both of them seeing CFB as entertainment to be marketed and sold to the highest bidder while pretending good intentions for the student athlete, have done their share of damage to the game while padding their cushy jobs with high salaries....... and the broadcasters, making a crap-ton of money in the process themselves, have been happy to pay to play meanwhile turning a nominal 2h and 40m contest into a 4h, commercial laden affair.

                • Most of the sports are better now than 30 years ago. It isn't even close with the NBA.

                  MLB is the best but it is wretched if your team is garbage. Golf on TV is a waste of time. College football and pro football are OK but they are kind of like half sports. Games are on for only 4 months and the rest of the year is talking about nothing.

                  • The Super Bowl is significantly better than it was in the 80's and 90's

                      • So on the eve of the G7, Trump's predictably whiny and attacking everyone as "unfair".

                        He doesn't get along with Merkel or May. He's now openly feuding with Trudeau. And the bromance with Macron is over, with Macron telling Trump a G6 would be just fine and larger than the US economy.

                        EDIT: WH announces tonight that Trump's leaving the G7 earlier than expected

                        • And with the whole "Trump made Kim get down on his hands and knees and beg for the meeting" shit isnt helpful. Kim needs a chance to save face, and that's not how to do it.

                          • The details of my life are quite inconsequential... very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard really. At the age of twelve I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum... it's breathtaking- I highly suggest you try it.

                              • DOJ seizes years of emails and phone records from a NY Times reporter in pursuit of leaks. This is not unlike when the Obama administration spied on James Rosen to uncover who was leaking him stories.

                                Will Fox and other conservative media outlets be as outraged this time?

                                It seems as if the real target of the investigation is a man named James Wolfe, who formerly served as director of security for the Senate Intel Committee, and whom the reporter was once dating. Wolfe is a veteran and worked for the Committee for over 30 years.

                                EDIT: CNN just reported that Wolfe has been arrested
