    Don't mess with this forum. Move it under the Expansion Teams section if you must, but create a new Houston forum rather than co-opting the San Jose forum.

    Forums are for the fans, and the fans are staying in San Jose. Plus, we are hoping to get the SJ Earthquakes back in a few years, so you can move the forum back under "MLS: Teams" when that happens.

    What you suggest is what billreeves and I asked them to do earlier today, in the mods forum. And it's certainly not what we asked for the tagline to be. Not sure if the admins have to do things in steps, but if this was their idea of reorganization, wow.

    EDIT: sticky'd temporarily so we don't get a bazillion "WTF?" threads.

    San Jose (Houston) Quakes? Man, BigSoccer admins, that's so brutal and dumb it's kinda funny. Couldn't you have waited a day to start changing stuff? And they won't be the Houston "Quakes". Talk about rubbing salt in the wound. The logical thing to do would be to "relegate" the Quakes forum to a San Jose expansion / former or whatever forum and "promote" the Houston expansion forum to MLS Teams.

    Board mods...just wanted to say that you guys have done an awesome job of staying on top of our forum in the last 24 hours. The number of people coming to this forum has been and continues to be huge, the posts too numerous to keep track of.

    This was your team too.

    Good job.

    I think BS should follow one small part of what transpired yesterday and leave the forum, colors, fans, and records in place here where the board has always been. At BS, we, too, are working to bring a franchise back to its rightful place as soon as possible.

    Maybe I should devote all of my attention to the rivals and Dallas boards, and hunting down and hectoring Segroves whenever he crawls out from under his rock? ;)

    Maybe if we moved now down to potential expansion, we'd attract fewer trolls?

    I would still find you. Mwwwaaaaahaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaa. ;)

    NOTE: the above is a joke and only a joke. It is not meant to be construed as anything other than a joke. It is/was an attempt to make light of the current frustrating situation.
