Whatever point was initially made has been replaced. It is no longer about Mack, it is about them.
Exactly. Not sure how to say this, but if you allow people to sit on their couch in the underwear and type stuff without any repercussion, this is what you get. It's the "look at me, look at me, everybody gets a trophy" mentality. That may be a little harsh, but you get my drift.
so much irony
That does not make those scores irrelevant.
No kidding eh. Hey TeeDoe that "everybody gets a trophy mentality" is the exact same Mack Brown has employed. Him giving out awards after every game and having a banquet are proof of that.
Was the other thread locked?
yessir. as it should have been. had run its course.
Yeah it had run its course, which is why we have another thread covering the same topic with the same amount of traffic when the original would have sufficed.
to each his own.
+1 Still needs to go. Need a fresh breath of air.
Still not locked, huh?
"I don't hate you, I'm just not necessarily excited about your existence."
Did the mods ever give a reason why the first Fire Mack thread was locked?
For the love of God, just stop. These threads do more harm than good. Regardless of what the opinion of the average fan, it isn't going to get Mack Brown fired. The "fire Mack Brown" threads sure aren't helping our recruiting though.

9 and 4 at Texas sucks!

Yes, witness the awesome power of this fully operational Fansite Recruiting Star!
Lol, we won't have any of that dirty stinking logic around here. we will bitch until the cows come home and the chickens come to roost and any other lame metaphors we can come up with because it is the right thing to do. We really have to keep the negative focus on coach Brown and whichever coach has a bad week with him so that he/they will feel our wrath. The power brokers at the university will feel our wrath. The BMDs will feel our wrath. The players that underperform will feel our wrath. Anyone who is not profoundly upset with the state of the program will feel our wrath. We will impose our will through the power of the Internet on those who would believe that we can improve with the current staff. God Bless America, the state of Texas, and fire Mack!
I guess I must have drunk from the Internet stream today.
anonymous downvotes are awesome, lol.
I've already shown why the metaphor is flawed. It's not logical. It's actually the opposite. "We can't effect change in the course of events immediately or directly and so we must endorse the course of events dictated to us from on high." That's not logical, it's not even American.
It's actually quite simple but I'll explain it so that you can follow. Your ability to influence recruits on these websites (which one could argue maybe minimal) is actually greater than your ability to influence the people who determine Mack Brown's job security. Bobby discussed the impact of a venomous fanbase in a post back in October. If you don't think impressionable kids read these websites, then go back & read Daniel Gresham's comments from around 1 month ago. If you are a big money booster then I retract my prior comments. I suspect you aren't so you are more likely helping the Aggies with your posts than helping to get Mack fired.
I'm in too.
I bow to the awesome might of the logic of selecting comments from a single recruit and journalist as proof that my internet ramblings will lead to the ascendency of aggie. I've never dealt with this much power before. The rush, it's incredible. I feel like the Highlander. MACKBROWN!!!!!! There can be only ONE!
Isn't it about time for Mack's yearly raise?
I think your logic is flawed in the fact that that that this particular thread takes shots at Mack, not at players. I mean if your logic was true, we need to shut down every thread that is even remotely critical of a recruit because in your logic that is what chases recruits away.
