This board is on a downward spiral
Because of politics. I'm seeing it here and I'm seeing it on 5Atexasfootball.com too. 5A has actually had this issue much longer, they didn't create a separate forum just for politics. Their off-topic forum began being filled with politic garbage, and it's sad to say a LOT of good posters have left that site for this very reason.
This board has the Discuss and Debate forum created separately, to purposely keep politics out of the rest of the board. But the problem is when long time posters begin sharing their political views, then it turns into a republican/democrat issue, then it turns into a class welfare issue, then a race issue.
It went from guys logging on to talk football/sports and other normal daily chatter, to people taking sides and making this board a divided one.
When I walk into a Buffalo Wild Wings or Fast Eddies, I'm there to kick it and have a good time with my friends, meet some new people, talk about sports, music, daily bulls***, whatever. I'm not there to talk about some new bill Barack Obama signed, and OH my Gosh did you hear about the tea-party?! IMMIGRATION laws!! Remember Bush!! Budget...DEFICIT! S***! F***! TITTYYY!!!
Pardon me. Hearing that crap signals my tourette's.
I used BWW and Fast Eddies as an example because when I used to log in here, that's what I was here for. To have fun and meet new peeps. I remember when guero used to post funny videos and topics. Now its just Obama this, Obama that. Republicans this, democrats that. I remember when Newbs used to talk about things other than guns and Obama. I remember when I used to think EOTT was white!! And i could count on him being in either the football or softball forum. I remember when greenblood used to never make sense!....and somethings dont always change, and that's a good thing. But now it's just the same repetitive garbage over and over again. Obama. Republicans. Immigration. Health Care. Race. This board is like a cupcake. A cupcake covered in political icing, sprinkled with sh*tty posts by some newb who calls himself the "truth".
But underneath all that crappy icing, is the good stuff. That wholesome, warm, soul filling good stuff that we all love.
It's the rest of the board.
USE IT! F'n douchebags.

Look in the mirror thou Holy one, you make a thread that insults some and I am one of them so dont get upset about anything directed at you. You have multiple posts throughout the years that are great examples of what you are complaining about here. Thanks for the insult disguised in a way to make you look like the good guy, the moral poster above the fray, the light hearted always fun dude just looking for fun and happy posting days. You have done so much trash talking over the years that I want to laugh till I wet my pants and much of it has been in the didcuss and debate section, thanks again for the insult and taking the high road.............you are the man.HARLINGEN CARDINALS WINNING REPUTATION

i think if werent for all this the board would be all hugs and kisses and boooring
i mean he makes sense if we were arguing in the sports bar section
and not in the debate section
its not spilling over into other threads , atleast i dont think so
and its your own fault for throwing a fat juicy pitch
for greenblood to knock out the park
why would we have to blindly agree to every single thing , we have to be able to challenge each others thinking , and that is why we have the discuss and debate board to talk about controversial subjects

but its not football season and thats why people are in the DD threads
cuz even though its constant bashing
it is fun and entertaining , which is why everyone that is in there is in there
no one, at least i dont think so...actually gets thier feelings hurt
its just shootin the crap and some disagree with the crap others say
once football season starts
we will all be in the sports forum saying each others teams sucks and that our team this and thier team that
is all in good fun , almost sport
those that actually get thier jimmies rustled take it entirely to seriously"dats right lady, dats what you get...for lettin him out here wit killas..."

I was thinking the same thing. If it was really a concern I'd have expected Bunny to post it in the D&D board in an attempt to get us to stop using it instead of in the pub where I can only assume he was using to try and get the attention of the post whores in the nonsense thread.Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.

In addition Bunny, I'm just not that into it anymore man. I started posting on the other board when my kids were Freshmen. 2001? 2002? You know I was into it then. The boys graduated and the next year there were a bunch of kids I was still close to so I paid attention then. After that, Corb's eldest made varsity and that kid's like my little brother. We hunt together and attend shooting comps together. So I was still conected. After he graduated his little bro made Varsity so I was still interested.
Now I don't have a dog in the fight. I'm footballed out bro. I don't have kids envolved with the game so I'm on the outside looking in. I'll still attend games and root for my team but if I was to be as rabid as I used to be without knowing what the eff I was talking about I'd look like that idiot Lard Tard.
Sorry to let you down bro but after 15+ years of football I'm burned out.
Only reason I drive by this board anymore is to catch up on the nonsense in the D&D board. My advice to you is if ya don't like it... don't click.Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote. ~Benjamin Franklin

As far as being football'd out, I still enjoy attending Friday night games even if it's not an EE game.
When I joined this board back in whenever, I joined because people were constantly talking football and other sports. And the sports pub was full of interesting topics with people actually commenting and having convos. But those were also different posters at the time. Redfish. Guy. Ol Buzzard. Go-LF. Arlenerocks. IwanttocleanLFballs. Amnova. Manimal. We still get an occasional RPM sighting. Corb!! Man I miss that guy, we used to call ourselves the graveyard shift posting all night. Even chuck used to post a lot more.
Now I log on and there's maybe 1 topic if any that seems interesting or new. Eh, maybe it's time to move on. Times change, people change. Maybe I need a new hobby. I heard smoking crack is fun maybe I'll try that.

I think the real problem is, that we don't have a lot of posters that aren't from E-E, Mercy, Rio Hondo, PI, SB, LF, Sharyland, Harl or Wes.
I mean, that's 9 of like what? 40 RGV High schools?

Nah its not at all like that. I still love my Jackets and bleed black and gold till I die. It's still fun to watch them play, but you just don't get that same excitement like when there's a family member on the field. I love high school football in general, and I still love to catch games any chance I get. I'm saying I wish there was MORE football talk in this board instead of in the D&D forum.
