    thank the lord we didnt spend all of our money on mario. so its time to move on. were not getting peyton. and now we have some cap thats not being used. weve let vincent jackson go. also reggie wayne and pierre garcon. so my bet is that we go get myers and briesel. or myers, mario manningham and other young receivers.

    Way too much merging going on IMO. I've never understood that...it's not like the forum is bring printed out and we're killing trees.

    It's a matter of effeciency of reading. Do we really need to go to 4 different threads to have the exact same discussion?

    We retain the right to b!tch about anything we so desire. Including the mass movement of electrons for no purpose whatsoever.

    As to trees, Houston is running a byclcle thingie to help replant trees. You can donate money to that if you love trees.

    Technically Mario is not the subject of this thread. Its about what to do now that he's signed elsewhere

    Mario loved trees. I think I should start a new thread on that

    I met Mario. Ima start a thread about that and separate one for how he gave me an autograph and a separate one about his Lambo and a separate one about....... More specifically I'm going to do it right here in the Texans forum, although he's NOT A TEXAN.

    FML!!

    Don't read them then. Personally I find it harder to follow a discussion that was suddenly merged. To each his own I guess.

    It wouldn't be "suddenly merged" if it was posted an existing thread to begin with.

    But you wouldn't have to follow a discussion that was suddenly merged if people kept to the topics that already existed, and then created a new thread only to have a discussion on a different topic

    Then lock them then. Or limit the amount of new threads someone can start within a specific time frame. I think merging is the wrong approach. To each his own. I think people seem to think multiple threads is like rioting in the streets or something. It's a discussion board. Lives aren't being lost.

    There was no need for this thread. None.

    It's a two-parter: Part 1 is "Thank the lord we didn't sign Mario." Part 2 was "Now what to do?"

    The first part is rhetorical and has no thread value. No discussion value.

    The second part could be discussed in another thread about our free agency moves. That thread EXISTS. It's real. I promise.

    At the end of the day, this sort of thread is always created because someone wants to drive discussion to THEIR newly-created thread. As if a guy has just created a new secret hideout and he wants all the guys to hang out with him at his new location. It's acceptance-driven, actually.

    Because otherwise, he could have made that statement (the thread title) in one of the existing threads...but he knows it will just get passed over as 12 people make posts right after he does. Simple explanation as to why we don't start new threads when others exist.

    In that aspect, then why not just create a new thread for all responses? That way if someone wants to grammar nazi, they aren't affecting the discussion while doing so.

    It's called forum etiquette. Keeping a discussion in a single thread prevents people from having to ignore multiple threads about a subject. It also makes it easier to track multiple discussions and not having to rehash the same points/opinions over and over in new locations
