I like Flacco.

It's just he's a Ravens fan.

It's unnatural

I know this thread is old, but, just speaking from a new person perspective, I think the forum in general looks fine, however, I think each team having their own section is a tad much. I mostly scroll by that entire section, besides responding to a thread or two in the Cowboys section, but, I would prefer to talk smack about other teams, while engaging in the usual LOL TONY ROMO SUCKS retaliation, and not having to feel like I need to go to the Cowboys section to talk about the Cowboys with....well, no one, since there aren't too many active fans here, at least at the moment.

WF is a crazy active forum, there is always something to do there, and it would be awesome if this place could get at that level. Obviously harder to do because wrestling is a year round thing and football isn't, so, it's hard to keep people hanging around in the off season.

Also, I think the place could ease up on a few things, like censoring swear words. I think we're all adults here, we don't really need to have a bunch of stars take place of what we REALLY want to say. Just a suggestion.

Rants is the best section at WF, would be great to see something similar here, maybe a Smack Talk section, where the rules are lighter, and the rivalries can begin. Like it or not, a place like rants beings the ratings, people love to see SHOTS FIRED. In this situation, it's teams people love, it gets a bit more personal when someone has sh_t to say about someone else's beloved team. Anyway, not a big deal, just a thought, don't really care if this place gets a section for that or not.

As for getting members, when people look at the place and see sections that have responses mostly from 2012, yeah, of course the majority of new people are gonna leave. It's one of the big problems I have noticed here, lots of responses from 2012 as the last time anyone hit the thread. I also saw someone say they were trying to create discussions but no one was posting. I think the few remaining people should put at least a small amount of effort in to responding, even if you don't know much about the topic, nor even care a hell of a lot, any kind of response towards the topic is still a contribution.

Advertising is obviously the best way to get members to check the place out, I will see what I can do in terms of recruiting people from other forums. I'd suggest the place over at WF but I am pretty sure most people know this place is around, they would just rather talk football over there.

EDIT: Also, this place needs a video game forum.

Will look into some of those ideas in the coming days.

Welcome to the boards.

Yes, but there aren't many of you guys out there... We've always had a ton of guests, but not a lot of joiners. Thanks for singing up though.

Who knows. If one big forum dies after exhausting resources on upkeep, then this place might return to some glory. I haven't posted much in the last few years, but out of nostalgia, I come back and pop my head in

I agree. but sadly there isn't much to talk about in the offseason. I mean I know the forum is dull during the regular season, but in the offseason its literally dead.

It's dying because the game itself is dying, most young people today would rather watch paint dry or grass grow.
A typical game has people watching nothing or the cheer leaders for 1 and a half or even 2 hours.

Hey guys! I really hate to see what has happened here. I miss the days when we could talk NFL and to a lesser extent college football.

I would be interested to know just exactly what you found to talk about because this is the game where for most of the time people are just standing around doing nothing.

What makes me laugh is when the quarterback makes a mess of it when he throws the ball they give him another chance and let him throw it again.

When one side loses the ball both teams leave the field and two other teams come on????

If they have a kick at goal they bring on a player who does nothing else but kick the ball??? can't the other players kick the ball???
I thought the game was called FOOTBALL?
