WTH??!?

Rival fans living harmoniously

April 14, 2009 10:35 AM

Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky

The fan chat board hosted by the Tennessee Titans' web site disappeared not too long ago, prompting a few questions.

I've emailed a few people who got in touch with the explanation that I got: the Titans recently flipped their web site over to an NFL platform, and while the league brings teams on board it is not supporting message boards yet. There could be a deal for all 32 clubs in the works.

The team created an official Facebook page to help offset the loss.

I've also pointed some people to titanscentral.net, a long-standing independent board fueled by what seems to me to be a good group of people, many of whom have helped me out in the past and several of whom keep me on my toes here at the AFC South Blog.

But it turns out a board intended to replace the TOMB (Titans Official Message Board) has surfaced -- titanstailgate.com is working, but you need this link to get there. It has no official affiliation with the team.

The back story of how it came to be is an interesting one, according to Jesse in Nashville who emailed me:

The benefactor ended up being the owner of TexansTalk.com who saw the plight of the TOMB and stepped up to help out some fellow AFC South fans. When surprised with the amount of money titans fans donated to the new message board, the Texans [board] owner wrote, "First of all I want to thank everyone here for the donations. In case you haven't read between the lines this new board is being hosted on the TexansTalk.com server. I know many of you guys personally and I am happy to help you guys out (despite any ill feelings I may have for the team you root for)."

Doesn't it make you all mushy inside? It's a Texans fan helping out the fans of the team that fled his city in 1997, creating the void his new team was created to fill.

Notice what one of the guys said.

"Call it what it is, a Colts and Jags bashing website."

Apparently he has never read the 1,000 threads in here where the Titans get bashed and the VY sausage jokes. :specnatz:

Not to mention all of the internal bashing. The HWSNBN, Richard Smith, Greenwood, etc. threads....

As one of the new mods of Tailgate, and one of the old originals at the TOMB, as well as a close friend of Yvette, rest assured how grateful I am to Hookem et al for helping us.

All joking and ribbing aside, that was pretty cool of Kevin to help out.

No doubt. And to be honest, I don't have it in me to do the same. 30 other teams - even the Cryboys - no problem. But the ICOU? Fat chance. They are very fortunate Kevin has a heart as big as Texas.

I'm sure the Tinbread fans would have missed in that forum. Here, it's nice and visible. :smiliedance:

I refuse to believe this is true.

I don't believe it.

This is propaganda from the Crybreds to make us turn on one of our own.

Not until he come out and says he did so will I believe it.

Kevin has a big heart and it's really cool to see him get some National pub over this.

Forgotten in this heart-warming story is the continuing fact that Bud is a piece of human waste.

Hook I wouldn't have helped Buds team if they were on fire by pi**ing on them.

You truly are a better man.

Congrats
