Do you want to start a thread but are too nervous? Do you think that other posters will laugh at you for your poor English, inadequate football knowledge or the fact that you only have a dozen posts? Don't worry -- help is at hand! And it is COMPLETELY FREE! Just use the Do-It-Yourself thread starter kit below. With just a minimum of information (easily obtained while you waste your life browsing Profootballtalk or listening to sports radio) you can start threads that will keep your fellow Patsfans in business from now until the end of training camp. All you need to do is to copy and paste the template below and fill it in with the name of any player mentioned on Profootballtalk or sports radio as possibly about to part company with his present team. Then just delete as necessary. Easy! (Try to remember to spell the player's name right, but near misses are also acceptable.) "Should we sign [player's name]? I've heard that the [insert name of team, preferably that to which the player mentioned is currently under contract] are [about to cut/looking to trade] him. I know that he [can't make the starting line-up of a 4-12 team/has been arrested twice in six months/has publicly called Bill Belichick a cold-hearted slavedriver/only has one leg/wants $10 million a year/will cost two first-round picks] but the Patriots have shown in the past [that they can take back-ups and make them into top players, like Mike Vrabel/ that they don't get upset if a talented player badmouths the organization, like Ty Law/that they will pay top dollar for the right player, like Rosevelt Colvin/that they will sign players with a bad reputation, like Corey Dillon/that they will take players with an injury history, like Rodney Harrison] and I think he could really help us out [at ... insert name of player's position, if known]. What do you think?" One word of warning. You need to do this quickly. If you leave it for even a few hours, you can be sure that someone else will have posted the same thread.
