Nice.

I too don't care for the signing in every time to post a comment. But that might be I have so many passwords I have to write them in a little tablet and look them up all the time.

Sigh

rcade, do you think we could have the "every other comment highlighted" thing again? I realize I am not as young as I used to be and the eyes are going, but the aboved mentioned highlight makes the comments sooooo much easier to read. Thanks in advance.

Hope the wife has a speedy recovery, THX.

Yes, lbb, some members can be quite loquacious.

Wow! If you can't get it said in 4,000 characters...(not directed at you personally, Ms. Bat)

Why do you support who you do?

I am a Steeler fan (rather than a Browns fan) because I labored for 24yrs in a steel mill here in beautiful Canton, Ohio. Before that, I was a Raiders fan because I liked their "just win, baby" attitude and how they would take players off the scrap heap and go to the Super Bowl with them. (a long time ago, I know) But I will watch any teams play and love to talk football.

I casually follow the Indians and the Cavs because they are the "local" teams.

In hockey it is the New Jersey Devils because I am a BIG fan of Martin Brodeur. That will probably change when he retires.

College is Mount Union even thought they are a small school. I grew up around the Alliance, Ohio area and my sis-in-law and neice are alumi.

I followed NASCAR til R.J. Reynolds pulled out and they started futzing with the rules. Now I just glance at the standings once in a while.

Can we get these guys for plagiarism?

Is that the same as being on the cutting edge, owlhouse? Also, if it was Friday's USA Today, some times they have editorials on news that has already been reported. I think that is what might have happened here.

Thread-pissing

I say ignor them. If you (the understood you) need to reply to a "piss-on" comment make it and then let it go. It seems like some hold their team allegiance like a shield and wield their sarcasm like a sword on anyone who dares make a snarky remark. Then it seems like it is pile on and beat the offender to their knees. As for the posters of pissy comments...think before you type. Personally I don't care to be blasted for a remark, but maybe you do. For you members who just like to snark then sit back and watch the show...please don't do that. It detracts from the quality that is Sportsfilter.

Ask SpoFi

Yes, it is what cabuki and TBH said. Although I do like your response tahoemoj. Back in the day, Dick Trickle would smoke a cig when they were running under yellow. I don't know if he carried a lighter or had one built into the dash. Every so often the camera would catch him puffing away.

Kornheiser post

Picture is here. It's not even him, which is a bit of a disappointment. Maybe we should pitch in to get him a camera? Wow! how original! I thought someone of his *cough*eloquence*cough* could have come up with something better than that. My trust in the internet is totally destroyed

Another Congressional Committee Gets Into the Act

Barbaro to Chmn Dingle: Are you going to dig that up NOW? My samples probably have deteriorated and the tests would be inconclusive.

Guidelines update request

You guys crack me up!

yerfatma, lbb, I see what you mean. Works for me.

Guidelines update request

lbb, please, if you would, explain to me the difference between LOL and IMHO that I see you use on occasion? Maybe I am taking it personally, as I have used LOL about 3-4 times on here. Should we just outlaw shorthand of any kind then? I can abide by that.

Happy Festivus, Merry Chrismukkah, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year.

It's a hundred down here in the shade... Sure, rub it in, owlhouse, it is 26 here in Ohio. Take a break from the stove and hoist a stubby for me. :)

Freakin' (Early) Friday.

That was a great laugh, wc2. :) I did like the dance routine, but I hope she changes before doing any cooking.

SportsFilter--The new internet police state.

And, if someone doesn't want to follow the guidelines, it should be up to the mods to deal with him/her. It seems members pointing/calling them out about it just starts more crap.

SportsFilter--The new internet police state.

Amen, and thank you Folkways! I can understand some members not liking some of the FFPs, but why do they feel it is necessary to come into the thread and say so? Why can't they just keep quiet? I don't always like everything on here, but I don't feel compelled to comment about it. Pointing someone to the guidelines is fine. Do it and then let it alone, please! And if member A just has to make a comment about member B, why can't they do it and then let it alone? Instead, they have answer member B's reply, usually just throwing gasoline on the fire. I understand that no one wants Sportsfilter to turn into just another site to gas about sports. But the constant harping about the guidelines, punctuation, spelling, ect., ect. is really getting old. Also, it seems some members have carte blanche to post/comment at will, while others get deleted. Sorry for the rant.

Happy Birthday!

Happy Belated B-day, rcade!! 40 isn't bad. I think 50 is when the warranty expires! Hope you had a good one.

Happy Easter, everyone!

Thanks for the explanation, LBB. I have done that with a Three Muskateers bar but never with the peeps. Will have to give it a try. And yes, definitely use a paper plate!

Happy Easter, everyone!

And a Happy Easter to you, Sir! Forrestv, what is the "microwave thing"? Myself, I like to let the peeps get really stale, then eat them, nice and chewy! Wingnut, know what you mean about the sugar buzz! I am glad my son has out grown the Easter basket of candy. Just a little chocolate bunny for him now.

Punctuation Matters

Oops! My bad. Guess I get a -5 for spelling. That aside, Clancey or Clancy, anyone can be who ever they want on the internet, I guess. He is not my fav author, so I wasn't watching the spelling

yerfatma I am curious about one thing... are you THAT Tom Clancey? Loved "The Hunt for Red October"

Well, if ever I needed a reason to take up golf, this is it! Can't drive? No problem, 300yds without breaking a sweat. Don't want to leave the cart cause you just cracked a "beverage"? Just launch from your seat! Slow foursome in front of you? With one or two blasts from the golf ball launcher they will be telling you to "play through!" Hilarious/interesting post there, JJ

You've Ruined Everything.

Not to mention the calm voice of reason, JG, with splashes of humor here and there.

Please help me

You can always say "It wasn't me". (I kid) Sorry to hear you want to leave SpoFi. I have read your comments and really don"t see the problem, unless it is the remark about [redacted]. But I agree with Jerseygirl, no one would know your screen name unless you told them. Also, if you are [redacted] now, what would be the problem?

Happy Holidays!

I, too, would like to wish everyone here at SportsFilter "Happy Holidays! And Best Wishes for the New Year!" and may Santa bring me an NFC team winning the Super Bowl!
