Nostalgia from a long time ISh 76er
I've been on ISH for quite a while now, rooting for the 76ers, and watching this forum dead as it is, I got nostalgic remembering the old ISH 76ers FAM in it's offseason days. Where are all the hardcore 76er fans bumped regularly to keep alive the fam, despite not having much action around. I guess our team has sucked for too long now, and the fact that it will be keeping that tradition for a couple of seasons more -at least- doesn't helps a bit.
I'm not free of sin either. I haven't been active lately, and I could've done better to help this forum. But there are some factors that haven't motivated me, namely two:
1) The loss of Allen Iverson. Yes, "get over it already", I know. But he was the reason I started rooting for the 76ers in the first place. For me, he was the heart and soul of the team. As much as I had known for a couple of years that him leaving was the best for both sides, I miss him.
2) The change of quorum in 76er fans posting in here. I don't mean to diss anyone, but I'm pretty sure the level as far as poster quality goes has dropped considerably. I miss some of the guys from the old forum who are long gone, and not because I'm an old-days maniac. Let me put it simple: I'm sure 80% of the people who actually read this don't know what quorum means. And that's for those who didn't skipped this long post.
I'm eager to see more intelligent posters actively join this forum. But seeing the team as it is today, that's not likely to happen.
There are some quality 76er fans who never drop by this place -such as hateraid and GOBB- or others who I barely see post anymore -ppierce34, AI09, sixerfan3511, etc- but i'm hoping some come back once the season starts. I'm trying to convince myself I will.
