    Ciao...

    See ya fellas. I've been a member of this forum for some time now, and on a daily basis I look forward to reading many great posts, by many great posters. Prolate, zbellino, Rocky, jrl, rkarp's analyses, just to name a few. There are many more.

    Unfortunately, this place has devolved into a miserable, agenda-driven, childish forum. Football talk now takes a backseat to personal feuds, and so-called fans seem more interested in supporting their agenda(s), in lieu of supporting the team. I've tried the "ignore" feature, but I find only 1/4 of the forum available to me after utilizing said feature. Going back to my previous point, the majority of this forum doesn't consist of productive, intellectually-engaging football discussion, but rather, childish bickering. It's a shame there are no moderators here.

    All that said, this thread isn't designed to earn me any pity, or hearty-"goodbyes!" (although those would be nice!). Rather, it's designed to show you all where I'm going, and encourage the more rational, intelligent, level-headed folks to follow in my footsteps.

    I've found these two forums, read through them, and they appear to be exponentially better than what is going on here. If you'd like to join me over there, I strongly encourage you all to do so! I'll be under the same moniker, "dreighver".

    We'll miss you and your sensible posts, dreighver.  Do us a favour and check in periodically to see if things get better here once the games start(they usually do). Also let us know in a few weeks which of the other forums you like best. We may join you there.

    I think it will be much different when the season starts.  It's pretty wild that the place is this active and the first down hasn't been played yet.

    Right now, it's opinion vs. opinion vs. history vs. guesswork.

    I know what you mean about 1/4 of the board being available after using the ignore button. I've run into multiple theads lately where every one posting was on my ignore list. 

    That being said, I've always liked your posts. Not just the content but also the tenor of them. 

    Have a good one!

    Thats real Bro!~ I can def. relate. Too  bad you didnt p/m this post to MOST of us.. but I cant or wont try to make anyone stay and deal with this Sh*t! Its just some days I feel I can deal and others not. I took more than a week off and I come back and see the same Chit. I start a post and right away it gets trolled, trained and derailed! I will take a look at the other sites when I get a chance and hopefully talk football. At the end of the day though, its just too much to deal with daily when I can just talk with friends about football. Some people dont have that option so they HAVE to come here daily and thats when it gets weird. Good Luck Amigo!

    You'll be missed.  

    I could try to persuade you to stay, but I think that would be doing you a disservice.   I myself stepped away shortly after the Superbowl.   I poked my head back in here mid-summer and I couldn't believe what it had become.

    I'll stay through the season with blinders on, but maybe I'll see you over there after that.

    Be Well.

    I have seen those place you mention and they are much larger forums, which I don't like.  They have their share of knuckleheads there too.

    Like dreighver I'd like to find a discussion board that sticks to football talk. ...and I'd like to find one that doesn't allow this drama, name calling like high school girls. dreighver has given me hope that there is such a place. Looking forward to a fresh start...
