Great post. My problems here go more into overall fan base reaction. Lazy media types (i.e. Bradley) read these boards and think that they are getting the "pulse" of the fan base. That is so far from the truth that it is laughable. The vast majority of season ticket holders that show up every week hve no idea that this message baord even exists. The hundreds of thousands of fans that watch our games every week don't know about this place. This place attracts a tiny percentage of fans, and it seems to attract a large % of uninformed, unknowledgable, and negative folks.

It really is this easy I have been on this board for 7 years. I work from home and have the page open almost everyday. I have seen the board quality really go down lots of turmoil the last 3 years. Even when things were good last year the trolls kept rolling. I dreaded logging on Tuesday but was actually surprised but that only lasted a day as by the end of Tue. the same old crap was rolling. I rarely find a thread worthy of commenting on because I dont want every player cut by another team, dont want to fire the coach or bench the team. There is very little football talk anymore. We used to have great minds breaking down tape. We had spirited fans proudly touting there players, we had old members that would fight off and humble the trolls. But everyday I think the trolls are winning and the good posters are leaving because its just not fun. So like it was mentioned just dont reply or bump the sorry threads look for a good thread look for a reason to cheer your team instead of jeering the team. If you see a team concern present it as such dont degrade yourself and what others think of you by bashing someone or something without thinking it out and giving a reasonable reason besides he dropped the ball or threw an interception he should be benched.

One of the problems is that the games can't compete with the coverage anymore. More time is spent watching sports news than a game. The problem with sports news is that overall it is sensationalistic and it puts way too much emphasis on stats rather than the games. No one has to think for themselves anymore and anyone who can read a stat thinks he/she can talk football.

The reason why we have weekly whine threads about not getting respect is because when you watch hours and hours of coverage and it feels like watching tons of games but none of them are yours.

Fantasy football has made things worse by having fans of one team root for players on another and being mad at players on your own team because they weren't stat rich in their performance.

However, there are still a good core group of people here and I love discussing football with them. Much like I focus on the positives of my team I focus on the positives on this board. One of these days I might even figure out the secret to getting into PF, that is, if they allow sardonic jerks in there.

Bingo. There are usually some great threads three to 10 pages back (depends on how many Saints trolls have infested the board.)

Maybe we should spend time finding buried worthy threads and adding a comment. It would improve the quality of the first page by shoving the crap into history. The mods aren't allowed to kill crud topics, but we can resurrect the good ones.

When I first get on the board I look for threads started by people I know I like to read in my initial scan. I don't mind going back several pages to find them. This keeps me from focusing on the page 1 crap.

I love it here. I think this may be the best sports forums in existence. I love it so much I have post whored my way into have over 6k posts in under a year.

You, too, can enjoy the TATF experience if you purchase my instructual video titled "TATF: Talk about the FUN" for only 7 payments of $19.99. People that purchase in the next hour will receive a free can of Ronco Spray-on hair. Act now.

Here are some highlights:

TATF: Talk around the fools. There is a great core of people here talk to them not to the fools.

TATF: Tell a troll "f...off." Don't talk football to a troll... that will only annoy you. Have fun at their expense. Deliver a zinger make some people laugh and then leave their thread.

TATF: Taradiddles aren't the focus. Ignore about 90 percent of the threads that would bother you. If you see some crappy thread title just don't click on it. You aren't required to read every thread you know. If you do open it deliver a zinger and leave. A taradiddle is essentially stupid nonsense presented in a pretentious way.

TATF: Talk about the Falcons. Your silence makes things worse. Start threads and bump others that you agree with.

Take a tip from Finally. This place can be loads of fun if you follow my simple guide for how to enjoy yourself. Ignore the crap and focus on the positives.

I'd like to purchase 2 copies of your video, in case I wanna watch it more than once.

A lot of other boards are set up where you point at the topic and it gives you the first few sentences of the post.If we had this,it would save a lot of time by being able to bypass the knuckleheads and not be sucked into their foolishness.

What about the: "If you order in the next 10 minutes, we will knock one payment off"?

I can't afford the full price :(

And what about the guarantee? "If you are unsatisfied with this video, we will send you a second one free"? :lol:

Good stuff. But you seemed furious in the "Jason Campbell has a higher QB rating than Matt Ryan".

Yeah Jaymadd is right. Cancel my order, I already have all the information I need. Looks like your TATF Video empire is crumbling all around you. Quick, burn down the factory and collect the insurance money, it's your only way out of the financial hole you've dug yourself into.

It is funny that people see it that way. I was having a blast. I even got him to go over to my predict the south game and claim it was not TATF. I LOVE it when someone lets me get under their skin.

My first post was out of irritation. There are irritating things that go on around here but if you focus on the good stuff the irritating things won't ruin your day.

NO REFUNDS! I just dubbed it over to a beta tape and it is on its way.
