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.

  • Rules are rules. That was one shitty and far-fetched way to lose a football game, but the Lions specialize in precisely those kinds of losses.

    • I still think that play fell into the "not definitive" category and thus shouldn't have been reversed.

      • You probably have a good argument.

        • NFL cares more about making the correct call than protecting the feelings/ego of the referees. It was the right call, in college that doesn't get overturned.

          • I don't have a problem with the call but the 10 second run-off in that situation was killer. They'll have to put in a new exception to the rulebook

                    • Proven once again today: The running game means nothing. Every championship game comes down to passing. New England won because they had to pass more at the end, and they were effective. I'm not sure if they would have won if they were ahead going into 4th quarter-- New England only took the lead when they abandoned the running game.

                        I wouldn't go that far. The Jags put up some good numbers early on the ground running Fournette and alternating that with Bortles nicely executing the RPO.

                        But, generally, yes, the NFL plays a pass heavy game and the Patriots in particular because ..... well, Tom Brady.

                        My sense is that with the HS athletes getting much bigger and much more skilled, you'll see CFB teams, while still using that extra runner with the dual threat QB, look more and more like NFL offenses, i.e., pass heavy.

                        I rarely watch the NFL during the regular season but I do watch the post season games. As much as in the college game, in the NFL post season, it's key guys making big plays that turns a ball game. That's exactly how the Pats shut down the Jags possession game in the second half - with the Jaguars controlling it and ahead big in the first half and well into the third quarter.

                        With Gronkowski out, Danny Amendola stepped up and made some huge plays. And then there's Brady. Over my lifetime, I don't think I've seen a more dominant QB in big games.

                        • Thing is, if an NFL offense loses run/pass balance then the opposing D can feel free to put their pass rush specialists in the field more often and play schemes that don't have to gameplan for rushes....recipe for disaster.

                                Correct. The running game is an extension of pass pro in the NFL.
