    Fan Malaise (Or "What Happened To this Board II: Electric Boogaloo!")

    So, because some of us couldn't discuss things like mature adults, the interesting conversation on why many of us seem (or claim) to be feeling uninterested in the NFL/Jets this offseason got locked.

    But lo and behold, we had a big event yesterday. The lockout was lifted!

    So, now that the lockout is done (pending the Owners getting their asses handed to them again in requesting a stay or speedy appeal), the lockout will indeed be done, and the season year will begin, trades permitted, players working out, and of ocurse, the pending draft in 2 days.

    So, we can continue our conversation (assuming we can manage to not get it locked again, if you all please) as to the fan malaise, if it will continue unabated, if the end of lthe lockout will end fan disinterest, or if the lockout will have lingering effects on fan motivation/forum whoring.

    Please, in deference to our fine Moderation team, please keep it civil, and on the topic. Attack the argument, not the poster. Yes, even SAR.

    I feel just as disinterested as I did 24 hours ago.

    No free agency + non-top-15 draft pick would be my vote.

    What would improve the board immensely is no more retarded avatars - that would be a great step in the right direction.

    Whose avatar is "retarded"?

    Warfish is a psuedo-mod who may or may not have banning powers. Be careful. He's a day walker.

    Not yours fish.

    When have I ever been known for civility?

    I call them how I see them - good, bad or indifferent.

    That's why you will never hear my name being mentioned as a potential moderator around this place.

    Would "moronic" avatars better suit you?

    A "dabbler". It's why he only wears maxi-length kilts, with undergarments, to boot.

    blasphemy.


    the reason he wears a maxi-length kilt is to hide the angry fist that lurks beneath.

    Damn right!

    I like my eye.

    When have I ever been known for civility?
    Hmmm.....point made.

    I call them how I see them - good, bad or indifferent.
    True enough. Guess I was more curious than anything, I did a quick scan in this thread and didn't see anything too horribad.

    That's why you will never hear my name being mentioned as a potential moderator around this place.
    Please, Sean will hire anyone (just kidding Sean).

    Would "moronic" avatars better suit you?
    Naaa, not pompous enough for my tastes.

    Imbiciliic has a nice ring to it.

    Don't call Avatars retarded. You will make them sad. I think it would be called Avatards anyway.
