    Hey I just want to say thanks to the mods who did a stellar job today of containing the influx of rubberneckers and trolls. It would have been a lot more difficult to stomach the news that keeps flooding in if we had to sift through troll posts in every thread. This has obviously been tough enough for everybody here, so kudos for keeping the floor swept. I can't imagine what a time consuming job that must have been today.

    New England Patriots - 28
    San Diego Chargers - 24

    Bring on Sunday!!!

    Indeed. Today there was sh!t load of trolls, now there is almost none.

    ps: Is Aqua4Ever banned ?:D

    I would have at least thought in all this chaos he would have run over to talk a bunch of crap.

    Fellers,

    My thanks to the mods as well. It's difficult enough to try and sort out facts from opinions with all the talking heads on TV without having to deal with trolls on this fine board.

    Unless and until the NFL actually puts something in writing, it's all pure speculation. That and $5.00 will get you a cup of half-@ssed coffee at Starbucks.

    Respects,

    Thanks, folks. It has been an interesting 48 hours and one really gets a fascinating perspective on the human mind from the boards (and the PM's!). :)

    When there is a flood like this, it's impossible to keep 'em all off, but we hope to at least keep them from taking over.

    Thank you very very much.

    Moderating is like housework. You never notice it except when there's work that needs to be done. It's a thankless job generally, so let me say thanks again.

    As I stated on another thread, they mod's have done an exceptional job here the last couple of days.

    Anyone who is dissatisfied with what the mod's are doing, don't have a clue. They can ask for a full refund for what they paid to enjoy this site.

    I am not a mod on this forum so I can say this.

    Here's something to cheer everyone up regarding trolls!

    Yesterday, a thread by the famous Frank Moga III appeared (for a brief time before Pats1 took it to the trash bin). Here is what Moga posted:
    _________
    "Hello Pats fans:

    Tough day for you I see....

    I thought I would let you know that there is a major major talk about filing a lawsuit against the New England Patriots, Robert Fraft and his subsidiaries and the National Football League. Harry F. Schwartz, Esq is a major attorney in New York and is in the preliminary process of filing a class action lawsuit by the many fans who paid top ticket prices to watch an NFL santioned game in which there were impropieties. The New England Patriots and their entire organization will be at the center of this litigation.

    This is a hole mess for you and this franchise.

    There is justice in this world. There is a GOD.

    Moga III"
    ___________________________

    I PM'ed him:

    "Frank Moga???

    Oh, I'm so glad you came on our board today.

    I guess you are the Frank Moga who, before the second game of the season last year, on the Jets board, implored all NY fans in the Meadowlands to do bodily harm to anyone cheering for the Patriots.

    Well, sir, my cousin was beaten up outside the Meadowlands that day. Your IP Address is now recorded as of this moment.

    You wanna talk about lawsuits?"
    ____________________

    He PM'ed back:

    "Hello to you sir. I am sorry that your cousin got beaten up that day. That is a shame.

    I don't have to say much else to say to you now. The media is killing your team. This is a major major disgrace to you.

    IP address...so what Hoss. I didn't touch your cousin, so pipe down, you sound like a moron.

    Moga
    _______________-

    To which I replied:

    "Actually incitement to violence IS against the law and CAN be prosecuted to the fullest. Charles Manson is in jail for life and never touched any of the people his "children" killed.

    I'm calling my cousin with the information and he can decide on his options.

    Have a nice day."
    ______________

    Moga then disappeared and has not been seen since.

    ... and as I said in another thread:

    I'm a mod on a discussion board (non-football) and I can directly understand what the Mods here are going through. I'm sure we are only seeing a fraction of the crapola that is occurring and I wish to commend them for their hard (un-paid) work.

    Little hurts a moderator more than to have members come in and say, "Why aren't you Mods doing anything?", when, actually, behind the scenes they are spending waaaay too much of their personal time deleting/moving/banning/writing-each-other-on-a-private-screen while we out here are seeing none of it.

    I wish to give a standing O to all the Admin/Mods for all their hard (unseen) work during this time!!!!!!:eat3:

    Thanks Folks!
