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.

    This crosses many threads but I figured this would work:

    Woodson and Max Merget, a 16-year-old from Canton who has been a patient at Mott Children's Hospital in Ann Arbor, each threw out the first pitch before the Tigers game at Comerica Park on Wednesday night. Woodson, who recently gave $2 million to Mott for research, will be honored by the hospital today with "Charles Woodson Day."

    From The Detroit News:

      What a weird draft this has been so far...


      • #18
        Sure has. I'm surprised at the QB's who have gone.

        And, the Detroit Lions seem to have actually made another good pick.
        I put my phone on "airplane" mode, and now its in a holding pattern over Atlanta

          The QBs went quick because first everyone who needed QBs planned on taking guys like Locker and Dalton at the end of the first round, and then everyone figured out everyone else's plan. Every team with a QB need realized it couldn't afford to wait. Having said that, even though I think Christian Ponder might turn out to be the best QB taken in this draft, I'm really surprised he went #12.

            The NFL Networks' coverage has been pretty bad, IMO.

              Reading an analysis of Fairley, it was mentioned that he has bad "work habits". Anyone pay a lot of attention to him at Auburn? I don't know much about him.


              • #22
                Nick Fairley, to me, is a guy that's gotten by on phenomenal quickness and athletic abilities. I have no first-hand knowledge of his work habits, obviously, but having seen him in the last couple of years at Auburn, I can say he was a dominant defensive player last year. He's going to have to work on his pad level-- he made a lot of plays last year by standing up off the snap and running through gaps. That's not going to fly nearly as often against NFL offensive linemen. He's also going to have to work on stopping at the whistle-- he drew a lot of silly personal fouls last year because he loses control of his emotions and plays too aggressively. Having said all that, I can't fault the Lions for taking him, because I thought he was the best talent available at that pick. He has all the tools. When he was on, he was all but unblockable at the collegiate level last year. He's going to a team with excellent defensive coaches and a franchise DT to emulate in Ndamukong Suh. This ought to work.

                  Jonas Mouton goes in the second round to the Chargers. That's a surprise...


                  • #24
                    Not sure what GR had his LB's doing but Ezeh/Mouton looked to both be thinking way too much, seems that they had multiple gaps to fill (rare & unlikely)... I would've projected him as a second rounder maybe after his sophomore season till GR got ahold of him.


                    • #25
                      I'm pretty sure Greg Robinson wasn't sure what he had his LBs doing, either. Mouton has a lot of talent, but the Chargers have to be very confident in their developmental abilities to take Mouton there. I thought Mouton would be fortunate to sneak into the end of the third round.

                        And Ryan Mallett gets to back up a Michigan QB again.


                        • #27
                          If Mouton is really worth a 2nd rounder, it just makes Michigan's old defensive coaches look even worse. I thought the excuse was they didn't have any talent to work with?


                          • #28
                            Just watched the show on ESPN The Brady Six. Great show if your a M fan. Lots of nice Michigan footage, Carr, Henson interviews. Anyone else catch this. Henson, although he left us high and dry is a class act and a Michigan man, if he would of stayed that last year at M may still be playing, or at least be rich as hell.


                            • #29
                              Henson still won't admit that he made a bad move.

                              Steinbrenner's dollars would have still been available to him after he graduated. The only reason he made the offer was because he wanted to help O-Lie-O win a game.

                                That was tressel's first year ....... all part of the mass of roaches being discovered after truning the rock over on the osu football program since that lieing dirt-ball's arrival on the osu campus.
