Default This is a damn good football forum

Especially considering it's a basketball site.

Not a massive group of people, but still a terrific group

It's good in that it's filtered. It's not oversaturated with trolls and narrow minded people as you see on espn, fox and other major sports boards. People who actually know something about the game are willing post here and if a troll does indeed try to come and start spouting garbage with little substance or wit: "Your team sucks" "Kyle Orton is a top 10 QB", they'll immediately get run outta here by some of the more seasoned posters.

Unfortunately, this doesn't ring true in the NBA forum.

I guess the sad thing is that the football talk in here is 100 percent more intelligent than anything going on in the basketball forum.

Veteran ISH posters should have a private NBA forum.

Agreed. I spend way more time in here than I do on the NBA forum, even though this forum is way less active. There's none of the stupidity going on on this forum as there is over on the NBA Forum. You can't even make it through a couple pages of a game thread over there without it turning into crap.

consistent posters in the football forum>>>>>>>majority of posters in the NBA forum

I split my time here and the OTC now. I want to have some good NBA discussions but its too hard to accomplish that in the NBA forum.

I've been saying that for a while now. That is how they do it on the boxing forum that I'm on. There is the general boxing forum and then the heavy hitters lounge that you have to get an invite to... The regular posters don't even know that it exists.

I guess I can understand why Jeff wouldn't want to do it, because without the regulars posting in the general NBA forum occasionally, it would get even worse with the trolls and people lurking and not posting would probably split, thus cutting down the traffic.

The thing is, the regulars still post in the general forum on the boxing forum... The hard hitters forum is used for very serious conversations that we don't want trolls to overtake, but that forum isn't overused.

There is a delicate balance that the regulars have to be aware of with something like that.

Which is very sad. When I first joined this place, it was a decent board to come to to talk about basketball. But now, its ridiculous. I doubt there's 10 posters at any one time who knows what they're talking about. Its all Kobe/LeBron/Durant/Cavs/Lakers/Jordan trolls and they have the same hate fest discussions in EVERY thread.

Really wish there was an IQ test required to join this website.

I've been on several forums that have private sections for certain posters, and for the most part, it works out just fine.

We could always just take over that forum and make it our own NBA forum. It would be cooler if we could just get a private forum tho, nothing hurts a man's pride more than posting in a WNBA forum.

There was a forum with a password but it wasn't for NBA basketball talk. It was some private league of some sort.
