...saddens me that every time I sign in here, there is so much drama. I wish everyone would try to get along.

I've tried being a mediator of sorts between people, but I might as well be spitting in the wind. So, I won't be doing that anymore, and I've about quit making new boards because they end up turning into a shooting gallery. They should rename FN "Leadville" , "Deadwood", or maybe even "Tombstone", as in the OK Corral.

I'll eventually find a new place to chat football, and will leave this one. I'd have gone to Sportsjabber, but it's too graphic intensive for my computer, and my internet connection. But, I'm looking for a new place as we speak.

See now...this is what makes me sad. FN is gonna lose a good and valued member because of the stupidity of a few. :(

No one was in an argument last night that I know of, but comments continue to get deleted.Jack, Jimmy and Duke were executed this morning for no apparent reason-along with Tipsy's.I have no explanation. I was going through the thread this morning saying my usual "good morning drunks" I saw nothing that would indicate a whacking. I have no clue why FN would blow up a thread and three people with it this morning! I have been getting stalked as well as the "dirty dozen" (= a group of friends with a name) I think a few small minded self imposed mods need to get a life!

Hey JD. They were on a cussing rampage last night, from what I could tell on the community page. I think they all knew it would result in a banning today. But I really don't think they cared! They were going out in style :-)

I noticed that too.

Nope. No arguments whatsoever jus a few of us goofin around is all. Me and Jimmy were just using new words and laughing about them. Jack popped in for a few, but I don't see why he was targeted. I guess once you have so many comments reported, the mods just whack your account. Its crazy and lazy, but how else would you describe the FN mods?

Not sure which of the three you are, but when I saw some of the comments on the community page last night, I was LMAO!

January 3, 2011  01:26 PM ET

Does it matter if the guys get cut? What does it take to recreate an account? Yeah you lose your post total, maybe need a new call-sign? I don't know, until they block IP addresses (can they) it is just a minor nuisance.

Thanks for clarifying that LIHI... I was busy watching the Colts be mediocre!

I'm looking forward to the game next week. Should be good!

I had 53 comments removed in 2 days. And I guarantee 45 of them had no cussing.Jimmy and I figured if all of our comments were going to get reported anyways, may as well give them a reason to be reported.The cussing was all in good fun anyways. And the words we used were allowed by FN. So they could have deleted the comments without banning anyone.

Understandable. There are times when I wonder exactly what moderation means here. I've seen some of the most vile posts never removed on T&R and the TD threads, makes you wonder what is allowed and what isn't.

I think, like you said earlier, they just get lazy and delete the whole thread instead of picking out comments.

Anyway, if you see Jim around, tell him I said congrats on making the playoffs and good luck!

I think we will bounce the Jets! I loathe them after last year!

I hope the Colts win! But it will be difficult - the Jets are a pretty balanced team this year.

hey you, congrats on the win yesterday!Do you know if Cable will be the coach next year ?

Thanks! Great end to the season. Raiders got rid of a lot of nasty streaks this year!

Rumors are Cable is out. And I'm really not sure why. The players play hard for him - so it's got to be an internal conflict between him, Hue Jackson and Al Davis (surprise). Personally, I like him as a coach and hope he stays.

Oh and Jim - good luck next week! Tough game for sure, but Arrowhead is a tough place to play. Ravens will need all the luck they can get.

thank you! I hope the Chiefs at least show up and play next week, yesterday was one of their worst games.

You never know, Jim. Sometimes when you lose it causes players to study harder, practice harder and realize anyone can win any given week. I think they'll be highly motivated to get passed the first round!

And PS, the Raiders are only a better team than the Chiefs this year. I don't expect any divisional sweeps next year.

QUOTE:

that was pretty cool, sweeping the division this year, if the Raiders change coaches, and Denver is, next year could be good for the Chiefs again, I just hope losing Weis doesn`t hurt the team.

Not sure what Weis is thinking... unless he just wants warmer weather :-)

I don`t either, makes you wonder if him and Haley don`t get along, and I heard that he wants to be the head coach of a college again, so maybe thats why, just to get back into it.

Yes, well that would be a step in the right direction if that's what he wants. For now though, he needs to focus on the task ahead!

When you find, let me know my freind...I am right behind your lead.

Let's just try and stick it out here, try and get along and hey if you get axed just start another. Not directing this ag BGDeuce, just grabbing his quote as he and Bull would consider a departure.

Remember the grass always SEEMS greener on the other side......
