6 pages, 142 posts in just 7 days, yes this thread is going to be popular during the course of the season. There will be at least 15-20 people posting in it throughout the season so it is going to be a very large thread. During the season there are so many small threads that people make that it's just natural that the Patriots Sunday Bunch thread is going to get moved all over the place regardless of how frequently people will pbe posting in it. I do not understand why you have such a problem with one thread pinned to the top for the convienence of many people who actively post in the Patriots on the Front Burner forum. As I mentioned before, the forum consists of many non Patriots related threads already, none of the other sub forums were ever used, that your argument of it not being "Patriot" related really isn't valid.
I don't understand your resistance of this thread. There is nothing selfish and/or egotistical about it. It's not a hey look at me type thread, it is a thread that many here will be posting in throughout the season and it is just very convenient to have it pinned at the top. Generally that is what forums do to threads that will be used as much as this one will be. It is a courtesy to the forum members to have it pinned to the top.
