i was looking at a few threads from this offseason, and from the 2009 regular season, and recognized a whole lot of big name posters that have mysteriously disappearance.
amazing how a poo season sifts all the bandwagoners out of a fanbase... any bets on how many of these guys quietly return when we sign our first major free agent in the spring?
Or, we left because these boards have kind of devolved into something I don't really care to be a part of. Not getting on a soapbox or anything, but when I first started coming around, everyone was friendly to each other.
Now its "Oh my god, you're retarded for thinking that!" or "ANOTHER uniform thread? GTFO noob."
The whole board has sort of gained a 4chan odor. I still keep in touch with some people via facebook (like bleys).
EDIT: One thing I always liked at another board I frequent is their VIP room. Only members that have been vetted by the administration and existing VIPs can view and post in that forum. Elitist? Probably. Effective? Definitely.
