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.

    Meet me at the Ypsi water tower in 10 minutes.

    If I'm not there in 10 minutes, start without me.

      Pistons are having some good games that they piss away in the final minutes, first to Miami and then to the Hawks. Good for providing 46 minutes of entertainment for fans while still gaining ping pong balls.

            For having been such an f'n thorn in our sides back in our Freep Forum days, Charles sure is missed!

            I'd also love to see him back, regardless of which incarnation he'd come back as, whether it was as himself, or as G Gus Spartacus, or as packfan, or as one of the TR Beavis clones, or ...

              Manny may make it back to the big time this season if he keeps this going:

                He's talented enough to sustain a career as a reserve, bench guy.

                  Manny was signed by the Cavs again. It may just be a 10 day contract. I'm not sure.

                    Most likely.

                      It was a 10 day contract and he was signed to a second one today.

                      He had 9 points tonight in a blowout loss to the Bulls.

                          I just heard the SuperSonics don't play in the NBA anymore...

                          I stopped following the NBA when the Cavs & 3 refs beat the Pistons in the postseason... I'm not even sure the Pistons were a better team than those Cavs but it was clear the refs were controlling the series. Watched 30+ Pistons games a year probably back then, haven't watched more than a handful since.

                            You and me both, WM. I didn't watch the NBA for several years after they changed the rules to let Michael Jordan "shine". Rod Thorn and his buddies made sure that nobody would be allowed to play defense against him anymore, and they got the legend they craved for.

                            Looks like a lot of the same thing is going on with LeBron, although not to the same extent. He still commits offensive fouls nearly every time he gets the ball, but its never, ever called. Looks to me like the NBA has decided that its time for LeBron and his boys in South Beach to have their "first" championship. I have zero interest in watching that.

                              I stopped watching after Dwayne Wade was awarded the championship in.... 2006? Pistons and Mavs both got the screws put to them.

                                Yep, me too. It was as if they didn't even try and cloak it anymore. Watching any NBA highlights now is a study in traveling, and charging.
