As you shop this holiday season, please remember to use the forum's link (listed in the menu as "Amazon Link") to add items to your cart and purchase them. The forum gets a small commission from every item sold and the commission increases based on the number of items sold in a month. (So even buying a 99 cent MP3 helps!) Bonus this year: Amazon has announced FREE SHIPPING through the holidays!!

Additionally, the forum gets a "bounty" for various offers at For instance, if you sign up for a 30 day free trial of Amazon Prime, the forum will earn $3. If you create a wedding or baby registry, the forum earns $3. And creating an Amazon Business account will send a $15 commission our way.

Your personal information is completely private, I only get a list of items that were ordered/shipped via the link, no names or locations or anything. This does not cost you anything extra and it helps pays the operating costs of this forum which continue to go up as our commissions have gone down. Thank you for your support and happy holidays!! --Deborah

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.

  • Off Topic: Wolverines in the NBA/PISTONS/NBA in general

    Yes, there are no big stars from Michigan in the NBA. Yes, the Pistons are god awful. Yes, the lockout was a bit of a turnoff to even a die hard hoops fan like me but we may as well have this thread. These topics do come up on occasion.

    Plus, there will be at least solid NBA players coming from Michigan in the next few years.

    The Pistons will rise again. Right now, Brandon Knight and Greg Monroe are fun to watch and we're headed for a top 5 pick in one of the deepest drafts there's been in the last several years.

    The NBA is still kind of interesting.

    Only if you live in LA or South Beach.

      Or OKC, Chicago, Dallas, Philly, Denver, NY (because the team is still not getting their shite together and Isiah isn't around to blame)...and even Indianapolis.

        I hope you're right that the Pistons will rise again---that is, if they survive the empty seats they'lll be looking at in The Palace until they put together a title contender. Apathy has set in so deeply in Pontiac that it will take at least a run to the finals to turn it around and put fannies back in the seats. Otherwise, I'd be willing to bet the Pistons either move back to The D or leave the state sometime in the next decade.

          The State of Michigan should mandate that the Illitch Family own all 4 major sports franchises......;-)

            From what I've heard, the Palace of Auburn Hills still holds up well against newer arenas and I also heard that out of the latest CBA that came out of the lockout, there is now revenue sharing in the NBA so the Pistons should be safe while improving their on-court product.

            I'd love them to move into the city, though. I've only been out to the Palace a handful of times (maybe, maybe 10 total) and I've never liked the drive out to the sticks. Going to the Silverdome back in my younger days of Pistons fandom ('85-'88 ) was much more fun and cheaper.

              I never liked the Palace. I used to relly enjoy watching Bob Lanier and Dave Bing at Cobo.......;-)
