    Non Football Crud

    As a newbie I like the site. However...... the major downside is the
    amazing amount of BS non-football crud. Everything from toothaches
    to Affleck.

    Since I've been on line here I have yet to see the top 10 "Latest Talk"
    topics have a majority of Football topics. Often 8 out of 10 are BS.

    And this is FA and Draft!! What happens later??? Jerry Springer clips??

    That's why there are different forums.
    You don't like the non-football stuff don't visit that part of the site.
    It's really not that complicated.

    Those are posted in the proper forum.

    What football news would you like to discuss?
    From today, I believe (as far as ACTUAL news) we have Damon Huard signing and that's about it.

    It's the offseason. What do expect? If you don't want to talk about toothaches then don't click on the thread. It's that simple.

    Free agency starts in two days. I guarantee there will not be any talk like that once the signings start.

    Re: Non Football Crud

    You mean....threads like this? That have nothing to do with football?


    This isn't just a football board. There are plenty of those out there if you want to join one. This is a community. We talk about EVERYTHING on here, and it leads to good debate, funny comments and forged relationships.

    If you only want to talk about football, you don't have to talk about anything else.

    Besides, nothing is going on right now other than speculation, and speculation gets OLD FAST. I guarantee you that once we start signing free agents, drafting players and the season starts again, you will see football related topics on the majority of the latest talk.

    If you don't like it, don't click it!

    There will ALWAYS be a place in PP.O for stories about Tommy Lasorda getting hummers from a hooker while watching girl-girl porn.

    Re: Non Football Crud

    Wow...that's pretty strong bro.

    If you have ever been to another "quality" forum you would see that 90% have areas where you can talk about non-forum related topics.
    A lot of people here are internet friends and enjoy time away from ball.

    Some here do not know much about football and they do not speak a whole lot in the football forums.
    So, they like the chit-chat in the other areas of the site.


    But the best thing about it is (now read carefully here)
    IF YOU DO NOT LIKE, OR DO NOT HAVE ANY INTEREST IN THE TOPIC, DO NOT READ IT!
    It's that damn simple.

    So, before you just run yourself into a major headache here I would be careful what you call "BS".


    Think of us like a newspaper; we have it all.

    BTW, you have posted in some of those "BS" threads as well.

    Another option would be for YOU to start new football-related topics...no one here has a monopoly on topic starting.
    If you see any interesting football articles, feel free to post those in a new thread (check the relevant forum first though...it might already be posted).
    We are ALWAYS looking for new stuff to read about our favorite sport...and favorite team!
    But absent that, we will read most ANYTHING interesting to pass the time until the next good news article about the Vikings is posted.

    Welcome to PP.O!

    Re: Non Football Crud

    Welcome to the site.
    Post well and often on the topics you would like others to read, don't read the ones that appear to be out of your taste.

    I actually joined the site because of the variety that is in it.
    Provides some extra reading when work is slow and football is at a low period.

    Check out the couple of threads on Poo.....
    You will laugh I gaurantee it.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
