If I'm not mistaken, you get to be a mod by being on here alot and posting alot. The concept that ppl. who post alot are godlike "experts" is frankly quite overrated. There may be many of us who choose not to spend as much time online whose knowledge of football and opinions may be just as valid or even better. At any rate, even "experts" are often wrong... like those who said the Texans were reaching when they used their 4th round pick on a guy who would never be more than a 3rd down back....

You are mistaken. For the record, the person referenced in the comment you quoted was Fiddy and he was asked to be a moderator because he has displayed solid football knowledge.

Actually all the moderators all long-time posters with a good history. Some post alot and some don't post near as much as some of the regulars. Likewise, we have some mods that know football very well (like Fiddy for example) and we have some who are just great fans of the team and really don't know the game as well as others. Being an "expert" on football or age, or posting frequency has nothing to do with being a moderator.

My bad... My point, though is that there are many ppl. with "solid football knowledge" who are not around message boards enough to become a moderator. You wouldn't ask someone to become a mod if he's only here once or twice a month, no matter what his level of football knowledge is. Also that many ppl with "solid football knowledge" can be wrong in judging a college player's potential. If not, we wouldn't see 1st round busts or experienced journalists predicting that Davis would never be more than a 3rd down back.

Sure, a moderator has to be around enough to perform a function for the MB. And clearly all the solid football knowledge in the world doesn't convey a crystal ball and let's face it trying to predict the performance of 53 moving parts, much less examine and predict the performance of hundreds of college prospects in a new environment is beyond anyone's predictive capability--knowledge and history only get you so far and then you are solidly into SWAG (Scientific Wild A(take a stab at what this one is) Guess) country.

I understand your point but you are mixing in things that have nothing to do with it. We have some mods that rarely post but are here lurking on a regular basis, so post count is another issue that has zero to do with being a moderator. Also, as you have stated and as I mentioned, having a mind for breaking down football has nothing to do with moderating vulgarity and being a fan in general. We don't even track post counts here like on many boards in the member listing areas. You won't find a list of "top ten" posters or "leading posters" in our member list. We could care less about that.
