Here we are my friends, the thread for discussing the actual game as it happens. The vast majority of you are GREAT in this thread, but you must remember that this forum is different, as we like civilized discussion, and really don't want to read nonsense from other people.
I have had to ban a few people in the past...simply because of this thread. They were fine during normal forum discussion, but turned into something ugly in this thread when things in the game did not go well.
Posting negative is fine, but going dark on the entire program, the future of Oregon football, the IQ and tenure of Dan Lanning over one play, one decision or even one game is too far. Again, usual negative observations and opinions about the game are fine.
No venting. Telling us you don't like the interception and adding some salt to it is fine, but hammering us many times in the thread about how stupid something is--will be deleted. This is a place to let go, but not vent. Can you tell the difference?
When you write that Oregon is playing like crap, or sucks, etc....do you really think your astute observation is not already noticed by everyone else? When you are writing stuff like that...you are not adding comments or analysis, you are venting. Again....negative is fine! This is the hard part of moderating, and that is explaining how 95% of the negative written is just fine.
What about being critical of the players/coaches? We can be critical of player performance and coaching decisions, but we cannot get personal on them.
I really do want you all to have fun with this, and sorry for having to delve into it, but I know I need to spell this out for a few people. Now let's have some fun discussing this upcoming game of the Dan Lanning era!
