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.

    Cubs win Cubs win - going to the WS vs the Tribe...Not a good look either way for the Detroit Lions

    Would like to see Cubs win myself and the Lion take the mantle (sort of speak) for longest drought in Pro Sports (?) with out winning a Title

      Do they now have the longest drought of not playing for a title?

      One playoff win in the Super Bowl era. What's that -- 51 years? And, if I'm not mistaken, no home playff games in 23 seasons. It's amazing that a franchise could be so goddamn awful for so long.

        The Browns last won in '64...last played for a title in '65 I think. Last playoff win was in 1994.

          The Lions last won one in the 1950s, I believe.

            Go Cubbies; fuck Cleveland, or better yet, fuck that entire abortion of a state.
            Repugnant is the creature who would squander the ability to lift an eye to heaven, conscious of his fleeting time here.

              "The Lions last won one in the 1950s, I believe."

              It was 1957.

                Someone posted it up a few weeks ago. The Lions currently have the 5th longest championship drought. It will be 4th after the world series though as both the Cubs and Tribe have longer (1st and 4th longest respectively).

                      Cardinals are definitely on the list. 1947 or 1948. I forget which year they beat the Eagles.

                        Oh, probably the Kings. They started in Rochester as the Royals. I don't think they've won since the very early 50s.

                          The Kings disappointed fans in Rochester, Cincinnati, Omaha, Kansas City and Sacramento. Very impressive.

                            3rd longest in baseball is the Rangers I'm pretty sure, going back to when they were the 2nd version of the Washington Senators. But that's only like 1960 or so

                              It would have taken me awhile to get the Rangers.

                              The original Senators went from 1924 (I think) to 1987 without a title.

                              The curse of starting life as the Senators.

                                Correct. The Cardinals and number 2 and the Kings are number 4. Cleveland is 3, my bad lol

                                Atlanta Hawks are actually tied with the Lions at 58 seasons but won their title in 1958. So we suck more...I guess?
