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.

  • Oh yeah. I don't think any reasonable person thinks Nike gives two shits about Kaep. They are, however, very worried about the production level falling off by their giant army of 8-year-old girls in some Thai sweatshop.

    • Indeed. And now that they "stand for social justice" that can be forgiven!
      Dan Patrick: What was your reaction to [Urban Meyer being hired]?
      Brady Hoke: You know.....not....good.

      • The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

        • Monsanto should hire Kaep for a Round-Up ad: Close-up of his face with the caption: "Get rid of your weeds quicker than I got rid of my career as a back-up."

          People would forget about the whole carcinogen thing.

          • LOL. I'd contribute to any campaign to pay to have him be the face of Ford trucks, but this works both ways. It would be pretty amusing to, say, have him as the face of a campaign for Cabela's. REI could counter with Tom Brady ads, and the two would end up just trading customer bases.

            • Ford and Cabella would never do it. Not out of some political stance, though. But because they, like Nike, know their demographic.

              • Yes. Am just amused by the concept. A world in which hipsters drive F150s and rednecks are in Subaru Outbacks.

                • Extend it to all accessories, too.

                  Some redneck in a Suburu drinking a kombucha wearing Birkinstocks while the hipster was drinking a Bud Light wearing a TapOut shirt while driving a F-150 would be kind of awesome.

                    • I love it! Suitable for sketch comedy for sure. I'd go to precious-emo-band concerns if they were packed with rednecks, but it sounds less fun to see bro-country shows with hipster audiences.

                      • I will continue my personal boycott of Nike running shoes, but even if I was offended by Kaepernick my kids wouldn't stand for non Nike shoes. You pick your battles.

                          • I hate to say it, especially as a Pistons fan, but 80s Jordans are the best shoes for me to play basketball in. It's like a basketball version of barefoot running, because the footbed is flat rather than wedge, and I have low arches. I can also play in Puma Clydes, but prefer the extra support of mid- or high-top shoes.

                            • Tons and tons of follow up posts from Talent and his Alt Right buddies about Kaep and Nike and how disgusting and hypocritical gentry progs are and how we need to trigger and ridicule them any chance we get

                              Zero follow up posts about Trump wanting the DOJ to act as his personal political hatchet-men, protect his allies, and try to find reason to jail his enemies.

                              Sounds about right.

                              • Wait, am I an "Alt-Right buddy"? I mean, I can handle you calling me a lot of things, but one of Talent's buddies?

                                Sir, if it were not for my profound sense of noblesse oblige in all matters, I would abandon decorum and take you outside by the scruff for a good caning.
