Want To Discuss Our Charlotte Franchise?

In peace? Without falling victim to trolling?

I wouldn't post this if it wasn't necessary. If you want to talk Panthers, this site is the place to be. If you want to talk Bobcats... ehh, not so much. Any conversation to be had about our team has now devolved to "this is a REAL topic!" or "this happened b/c _____ is racist."

Whether it is sincere or sarcastic, I came to talk about my team and that is no longer possible here thanks to the retarded garbage that a select few have interjected, insinuated, or encouraged into every conversation. I'm sick of it. Race shouldn't even be a point of discussion in 99% of the subjects on this board. We're here to talk about our team.

This isn't 1940 or even 1964... We are decades past that. Yes, racism is very much alive and well and you have likely even read me speculating that it has played into some people's opinions in sports related subjects that have been discussed here in the past (Cam, Michael Vick, etc.).

But, I have not seen anything race-related relevant to our current situation with the Bobcats (or possible Hornets).

So, that being said...

For any true Charlotte Bobcats (or possible Charlotte Hornets) fans that want to talk about our team without being insulted, lambasted, or having your threads derailed and/or locked, feel free to go over to Bobcatsplanet.com.

It's clear the mods here at the huddle aren't interested in this Bobcats forum and I've basically been told it's a joke of a forum to them by one tenured mod, so they pretty much let things go unchecked here.

There are so many awesome forums on this board, and as a long-time member, I enjoy most of them... But, this one isn't useful anymore as it has devolved into garbage and rhetorical conjecture from the "mod" who then locks threads after he takes weeks of his time to derail them.

BTW, not that it should matter, but to show how irrational and warped this Bobcats subforum is, the founder and mod over Bobcatsplanet (Ziggy) is not white and allows any and all discussion relevant to our franchise. Yet, amazingly, hardly any discussion of race ever pop up, nor do rebrand threads get locked.

If you care about our franchise and have a legit discussion to be had, you can do it there without being insulted. Sure, a certain someone you know might come through and spew some "The Hornets are in New Orleans" crap, but shockingly, they don't scream racism nearly as much over there... I guess because they can't control threads there and may get banned for idiocy.

I tried to bear with it and use this forum as I spend enough time here in the Panthers section, so it's easier to discuss both of our teams here. But, no longer for obvious reasons. So, again, if you want to discuss basketball without idiots irresponsibly bringing race into the equation (because that REALLY shouldn't factor into anyone's thinking if you were born in the last 35 years or so) or locking threads because they are insecure...

GO TO BOBCATSPLANET.COM FOR ALL DISCUSSION FOR YOUR CHARLOTTE BOBCATS/POSSIBLE HORNETS. (No trolling)

That is all.

What;s the activity level like over there? I have been coming here for all of my posting needs, as I prefer just 1 site, but you are right about what this forum has become for Charlotte Basketball from both sides... I will look into it... thanks

Probably more active, TBH. They often have threads/news over there that either is posted well before it makes it on the forum here or never makes it up on this forum at all. Really good site and Ziggy is awesome. They actually have a chat room over there for games, the draft, etc. as well.

Where do I go if I want to express my never ending hatred and disdain for Bob Johnson? Thats a fire in me that'll never be extinguished and I want to encourage others to feel the same. Where do I go proudiddy? Where can I go to let Bobcat fans know they aint shyt and that Hornet fans are more desirable? Please tell me Diddy.

Ziggy's got a great site over there at BOBCATSplanet.com. Id hate to see a couple entitled Hornets fans go over there ruining it. Why yall still leeching off us? We're tainted remember?

You guys should go there. Its plenty of Hornet fans, stories about Hugo, and a lot of purple and teal. You guys shouldnt be saddled with the burden of pretending to care about the Bobs. Go and be with the other passionate Hornet fans. Convince them to come back home!

People talk about the Titantic a lot now too. Perhaps you could dive to the bottom of the Atlantic and ask them how successful they think they were.
