    OK, this is my opinion and I encourage Knave, Meridian, and Revelation to share their thoughts as well.

    I know that our third straight year of losing is getting to some people and we lack that lightening rod where we can direct all our anger (Rongen). However, this does not excuse recent behavior of almost all of us - myself included.

    Here is the deal - for the rest of season I will do a little better job of making sure I read more posts (I am only human and can only get to so much) and I encourage everyone to report any post that might be questionable.

    Now - here is where you all come in. We all need to do a better job of keeping things on track. If an opposing team supporter comes into our forum and starts something - report it to a mod or simply ignore them.

    The official thread will be just that. No smack talk. Take it to the Rivalries forum.

    I encourage you all to have input into this situation but keep it on topic. I don't want to see - "well a Metro started it"

    Thread stuck. And with that I sign onto JH6's opinion.

    I want more power!


    BTB - let's try to completely eliminate racism, sexism, and homophobia from our board.

    Focus all hate on the Metros.

    Um, phobia means to fear not to hate...Baltimoreans...sheesh... ;)

    I firmly agree with JH6 (especially since I gave him the idea about no "lightning rod" to channel our "piss and vinegar"). Sure, this season has been tough and we've gotten a little bitter. But remember no one on this board is actually responsible for the demise of the once proud DC United (except of course the sockpuppets and actual IDs of people that work for DC United).

    As for trolls from other teams, we will simply get rid of your posts. Take it to the Rivalries forum!

    Plus guys it could be worse - you could support a team like FC St. Pauli, which was relegated last season (with only 22 points from 34 games), lost most of their players, has lost their first three games by 0-4, 1-4, 0-6, and fired their manager without a replacement in sight! :(

    I think that's the fear of getting your arm caught after the door chime sounds.

    Hey I'm all for putting the hard core stuff on the Rivalries (or hey kids, if you're a premium member you can put on your own board!)

    Thanks. I like this. A couple of things:

    - That Baltimorons.

    - Has anyone here actually used their own private forum (other than Meridian's where he has all the power he wants)?

    -I officially am calling for Ray Hudson to be hoisted on his own petard. And fired. In case you didn't know.

    -I want to be able to write The Carevelationisgreat. Oh, forget it.

    I used mine some, but my powers are limited, I can't even stick a thread!

    Oh and noone else posts there.

    I'm going to start a "Landon is a Hunk" thread soon though maybe that will rack up the posters.
