True statement IMO. The other side can be annoying but it is essential that we can all have our own beliefs.
I'm sorry to see I'm still in your head Buck. I hope you're able to find some peace.
Thats actually a fair point that I hadn't thought of.
Any gooner that comes on this board to laugh at and belittle Vince is gonna hear from me.
And your trash ass should take comfort knowing I sleep VERY well at night.
Can someone explain why Hookem.com needs it's own OT board instead of the entire network having one?
We've seen this story before. OT board is created, five people participate, when threads get moved there there are days in between posts.
You're so angry. I'm sorry I got you so upset.
Because the SEC runs the show over there and we'd like to talk amongst ourselves here.
Sadly, I think this has been well demonstrated in a number of sports sites. I am at times pretty political and convicted in my faith with the best of 'em but certainly do not hang out here to find out what any of you think about religion or politics. I also have the option if I want to get to know another poster's thoughts on an issue to private message them and am pretty sure I'll be polite and they wont get all "in your face" or become an internet "tough guy" over a one on one discussion.
I have no problem with the concept of a separate site for off topics, and I am sure there would be some interesting sharing of ideas, but it is pretty impossible to moderate the thing because we have seen what results from the "road rage-like" intensity that many are prone to when you open up that can of worms. Sort of falls in that category of watching that "your freedom does not cause others with a weaker conscience to stumble". Some really can not handle it. Would hate to see our strong, sports staff have to waste time trying to moderate such a place when I want them over here dealing with the real issues we all join this site to hear about.
One way to do this would to decide on and create a link on this site from which one could click on that would go to an existing site, not affiliated with Hook 'Em that does that sort of thing and would not fall back on Hook em if things were to get too far out of hand. This would keep it off this site, protect our moderators from the head aches and potential liability issues even and allow those who want such an outlet to have a common place to post with others from this site.
My two cents.
No, you make my point.
It doesn't have to be here. I'm fully aware I don't have to read it.
Post that stuff on Tebow.com, not here.
Don't you have anything to do besides troll?
Did you ever get the trash out like your mom wanted?
Did you see where he called me out first? Now I remember. You're the generic internet guy. Look I really don't have the time to deal with you either. I'm sorry your upset as well. I want you to know that I have no hard feelings toward you
Not sure exactly what a generic internet guy is. You don't have time? What else are you doing besides trolling?
Upset me? Gimme a break - just never understood the whole troll thing. Seems trolls need to get a life.
But that's just my opinion.
See what happens when anti-OT guys post in an OT thread? This is why we need a separate board. So you don't see OT threads and e-assault each other in them. No religion. No politics. No problem. I'm down to moderate.
I don't think I make your point at all but the reality is it does show up here from time to time even if you feel it shouldn't. If it is, so what, ignore it and move on.
Personally I like it on here because it ups the humor quotient on the board when people start getting all butthurt over it. There's nothing more entertaining then watching some of you get all worked up over nothing. Theres a lot more going on in life then this type of stuff and I don't take it that seriously. Clearly some of you do which makes reading these threads very entertaining. Especially during the offseason.
Bottom line for me is people have their beliefs. Cool. i may or may not agree. So what.
I can't go to Tebow.com because they don't allow sports discussions about the failures of GG or how we could have beaten Tech in 08 except for the lousy so and so who dropped a surefire interception and never really deserved to start for the team except he bled for the team. For whatever reason they refuse to set up an OT board.
Look, I'm sorry I upset you two weeks ago too. I didnt expect it to still be bothering you. I'm sorry it is. I didnt think it was such a big deal but obviously I was wrong. This has been a pretty good thread so far so to keep it from devolving into something worse, I'll let all this foolishness die with this post.
No no lets up the ante.
Ryan Tannehill just got drafted 8th in the 1st. Now go.....
Maybe Sherminator wants to switch him to WR, just to eff with him.
Signatures are stupid. You should block them.
Ha ha. I forgot he was there.
You're still trash Cutlip.
BTW, I know they don't stress grammar in okie schools, but listen up.
Your is an adjective denoting possession - as in, your trailer house or your gold tooth.
You're is a contraction used in place of you and are - as in, you're a gooner troll or you're a sister fluckin' mullet.
Sometimes I wonder if I should be offended by stuff like this.
let me speak in small words and in low case. we have the hookem 247 sports board for people who want all sports. what does a hookem 247 for o.t . discussions take away from the sports board. nothing.
I simply don't get the angst. If you don't want to read on O.T. board; don't go there. I suspect it will be a complete loss. The one thing that is missing from 24/7 is the O.B. O.T. discussions on the TOS main board that were non-political. I don't want to say this; but this forum has been boring beyond belief for the past month. I guess a few people have been mesmorized by Bobby's retrospectives on Dallas and Houston recruiting. Yawn. The tenth Pollard update in the past week was fascinating. An O.T. board that didnt actually turn into politics and religion would be a good addition. I doubt that happens; but why not see if its possible. For a few dollars a day; Bobby could add a moderator who deletes any discussion that devolves purely into politics or religion.
Don't be offended. Be sympathetic.
Plenty of hate just from football threads.
I would be for a OT board. I know I wouldn't participate in any religious or political threads. Those give me tired head and brings out the crazies. I do appreciate some of the OT threads on OB and Shaggy where someone asks a question for information and there are usually posters that gives expert advice.
I agree. Someday you can look at the first page and there are posts that haven't been commented on in over a day. That's not good. I don't see what it would hurt to have an OT board.
I love THE University of Texas....Hook em Horns.
