Unfortunately, many of the "fans" on the HT site seem to be more interested in insulting each other than conducting good ole stimulating intercourse.

Welcome to the TT board, SmoochyTX.

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.

Welcome Smoochy

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

Welcome to the TT board, SmoochyTX.
There's intercourse over there. It just happens to be "grudge" intercoursing!

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.

Default Re: Ffs

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.
