Welcome, Smoochy! I know you from the official forum.

Yeah, I pretty much left, as well. I need to get in touch with Wildroot and have him post over here more. In fact, there's a couple of fellas who would be good posters here...and leave the rest to the dregs (God bless them).

Similar crowd of douche nozzles around here vs the "official" board, just better mods to keep us in check.

The Texans have actively killed off the moderation. They only allow a couple and do not support them by exercising their admin powers by for example IP banning people so they don't repeatedly come back.

Yeah. I haven't been to those boards for years, literally.

As a group, we here at TT do a pretty good job of self moderation, and treating each other with respect, but some of us need a gentle reminder now and then. Myself included.

You know... when the discussion gets heated (or the liquor is doing the talking, or the Texans have a nasty loss... etc...).

Yeah I left the other board for this board, got tired of every thread devolving into a random x person vs random y person thread after page 1.

This forum is much better, all around.

Thanks all! It's too bad the other place has gone downhill so bad. All it really needs is for the Texans to take care of its mods so that the handful of troublemakers are taken care of. Oh well, I won't be dealing with it anymore. Ha!

And yeah, I recognize most of ya. :)

I have been noticing a LOT of new sign ups lately that appear legit (non-spammers). I guess the HT board going south explains that.

This board will always be better because it is run by the fans and there is no corporate crap involved. Plus as someone else mentioned this place has so many long timers that it polices itself for the most part. Also all of the former HT mods are here now.

BTW, speaking of HT mods did Vinny disappear again? I haven't seen him around in awhile.

I think I remember you from the other MB.

While people disagree around here, we respect each other for the most part.

Check out the draft section and you will see what I mean. Not so much in the NSZ. LOL

I haven't even looked at that board since the season started and have not been regular over there since 2006 maybe. After reading this thread I went over there to see what was going on. All I can say is WOW. That mods thread pretty much says it all. People using racist slurs and getting away with it? Cursing like that? It's turning into a Shaggy Bevo type of environment.

I think it won't be long before they just shut it down. They obviously don't want to deal with it and it appears they don't want anyone else to deal with it either.

The Titans eliminated their board a few seasons ago as have many other NFL teams. The Redskins eliminated their offical board and just started linking to a fan created board.

These things can be a real pain to run and it takes real dedication and love of the board to keep it going. A paid employee with no real interest will not want to deal with it.

I get most of the credit for this place however without the dedication of our mods and the community for often policing itself this place would be a mess too. Thank you to all of you. Going over there really made me appreciate even more what we have here from the body of excellent mods down to the newbie poster.

I haven't been over there in about six months. The Texans wouldn't support the mods (and only allowed two - edo and I), wouldn't respond to pm's, wouldn't IP ban people so banned people would just come back with a new screen name (and once back start making up outrageous stories of persecution - "I was once banned because I said I like steaks and one of the mods is vegan." So I got out and figured let the Texans reap what they sowed on their MB. It's a disgraceful black eye for the Texans now. They need to shut it down or go back to a model which works.

Im not going to get TOO DEEP into this because I have been on that side of the fence, but lets be real here. People become mods and go on power trips just as easy as noobs log on and wreck havoc. I have seen things in which guys should be banned, at least for a small amount of time, but Ive seen guys be banned for LIFE over things that were minor. Once "clicks" are formed it seemed like calling out one of those "members" would bring a rain of fire from above.....reality is the posters and mods need to work on being better......

I actually found this thread posted on the main site and thought I would check it out.

Have to say I think I'm staying. Seems to be more topics and more discussion going on. Got pretty tired of all the "self-important" nonsense. Too many people calling people out for everything under the sun.

Just want to chat about my team, sans the drama.

WHile all the attention is on, let me remind everyone that Hook'em runs this site out of his own pocket. I encourage all to click on the donate button above and leave a contribution. The Pay Pal is set up and if I can do it anyone can. This is pretty cheap entertainment and imo best source of sports info available.

Out of curiosity where does the money go? what things does he spend the money on to improve the site? I assume he pays a hosting fee, but what else?

Besides my time? The hosting and the server maintenance (daily backups, etc) are my biggest expenses. We are on a dedicated box.

The Google ad performance has really helped with much of this lately, especially when traffic is high.

Sure, I appreciate even the consideration. If you ever want to contribute and do it without Paypal you can just send a check. I have a special fund account set up for Texans Talk that I keep separate from my real business so you can make any check out to "Texans Talk".

The address is

Texans Talk
7805 Elkhorn Mtn Trail Suite 100
Austin, Texas 78729

Also thanks for the mention badboy.

One can also setup a monthly automatic payment through PayPal. Real easy and then one does not forget.
Paypal accounts are also easy to setup. If this old Grandma can do it - anyone can.

This is the best place for news, info and talk. I see news posted here before a lot of other internet sites have it posted. Ane we have a lot of well informed posters here. This is the best!!!!!

As an old dinosaur, I hesitated over paypal but it was so easy to put on my credit union Visa. Many posters do not contribute and that's cool but I was paying more for the houston paper and getting much less. I don't just stick with the Texans forum so this site blows away all other sources of news,politics, religion, personal, etc. I get who put in my 2 cenrts which you can't easily with ESPN for example. Just important to me is the "family" feeling I now have after being here for years. The only negative is the addiction.

To be honest, if Kevin was getting rich I could not care less. Hope you stick around and experience all the forums and get to know folks. Look forward to your posts.
