    Did you see who posted all of those threads? You did not even look to see who made all those posts.

    You are trying so hard. This amuses me.:biglaugh:

    @truebluefan does an amazing job with other areas of s2. I've conversed with him on occasion he's great. I will venture out and try to talk about other sports and teams once in a while, but the Blazer section is full of people that I know and enjoy talking sports with. So many times I'll take part in discussions here on college sports, and other pro sports teams here because it's kind of like having a conversation with friends at this point, because I've gotten to know quite a few people on here outside of just S2, but this is still a "commonplace" for a lot of us to have those conversations.

    No.....there's a place for your football threads.....if I post a Laker thread here...it gets moved to OT....if I post a mariner thread here it gets moved....was a forum standard until recently. This in not new information but a lot is changing around this forum. Looks like the mod is not concerned so you're pushin' the football theme...truebluefan is the welcome mat of every forum. Why not use the forum for that purpose?....and I had a new member ask me this question during the Duck game....where is everyone was the question...it's one click away to use the football forum but I guess that's hard..at any rate glad I made you laugh.

    The 49ers gave the Browns a beatdown. I was expecting a more competitive game.

    This all the way. It's about having conversations on topics we enjoy. I focus on that and ignore the rest.

    The problem with the "why doesn't everyone go over there" idea is that it's not realistic. You can't expect a whole group of people who usually just log-in onto the Rip City website to navigate there way to a completely different section of the forum that isn't used. Many people just go here and see what threads are here and participates accordingly. Asking them to move isn't realistic, so why would I or someone else take the time to go somewhere else when I'll probably be talking to myself or a smaller group?

    Also, new members that come to the Rip City forum can see the football threads and participate if they like. Do you think they're going to find the needle-in-the-haystack and find one thread in that vast NFL section? It's not gonna happen.

    It's not like there's a ton of football threads. You have a guy who searches "Blazers" in the Google News section and then regurgitates everything he finds as a thread, and will start four threads in one hour, making it hard to keep track of everything. But oh well, not a big deal. Yet the guy complaining about one weekly football thread didn't like me complaining about that. I point that out only because I honestly don't understand the motive...
