Those beards though. One of those should be face swapped onto the whole crowd.

In Topic: Two Words: "Nick Saban"

I'm amazed that some of you guys are still discussing how good he'd be as our (or any NFL team's) coach.  Or how he was at Miami.  Or how the NFL and college games are different.

 

That's just not the point.  Holy crap reading comprehension man.

Ask a Dolphins fan about Saban...

 

He was pretty clear about not wanting / hoping / advocating Saban as our coach.  Right?  It's in the first line of his post...and what he did in Miami isn't relevant without that.  The post was fair and the point being made is valid (if maybe a little narrow considering all the things that go into a football team being good)...the quality of a coach matters.  Replacing a poor one with a good one makes a huge difference.  

 

Noone is denying that Saban is a douche or that he fuged the Dolphins without the benefit of a courtesy reach-around.  It's undeniable, though, that Saban is a better college coach than Shula and that he was an upgrade in Alabama.  He remains a good example of an upgrade to the coach being an immediate impact.

 

His merits as an NFL coach (or even a decent person) just kinda don't matter in this situation.

Things that are completely free and worth your while that also have a substantial cost to the provider (in terms of both time and money) rarely stay completely free and maintain their quality of service unless the person providing them has unlimited resources to dump into providing them.  Personally I see the (really inexpensive and completely worth it) admission cost to one section of a much larger site as a way to keep providing the free service you enjoy long-term.  You'll remember some of us donated money to send Zod (yeah...I can't bring myself to just call a guy I don't know by his first name like we hung out last night) to Miami as well...there's precedent for people around here being willing to help out. 

 

I haven't seen any indication myself that the free portion of the site (much much smaller than the paid portion of the site, for the record) is being abandoned...that seems like a completely unfounded way to justify complaining about the additional content being offered to those of us who are willing to help support something that "we have had for free for a decade or more"

 

This is one of the most well-run / easy to tolerate NFL team boards I've had the pleasure of reading...and if $5/mo helps keep it that way I can have one less shot at a bar.  Or one less whatever else.  Or I can just have all the things I had before and have 5 fewer dollars.  I feel like the value I get out of this place, even without the extra forum, is more than $5.
