Forum Rules
No profanity or racist, sexist or political comments or commentary.
This includes using abbreviations or changing one letter of a swear word
such that the word(s) are still interpreted by most as profane.
No pornographic or obscene material of any kind. Any user posting
pornographic pictures, or links to such material will be blacklisted. This
includes materials within a signature file or avatar.
No attacking other posters. If you feel the need to harass another
poster, don't do it. What is considered attacking other posters?
Bringing up their name in posts that they did not start or were not
involved in, just to get a reaction from them.
Consistently responding to their posts and responding with no merit
other than to belittle them.
In short, making a poster a target.
Do not post unsubstantiated rumors about players, coaches, etc. If
you have a link to a news story, that is one thing. But if you have heard
something 'from a friend of a friend,' this is not the website to post innuendo
and rumor. Those posts will be removed.
No repetitive negative posting. What makes a repetitive post? If
you come to the forum and consistently say the exact same thing about the
exact same topic day in and day out, that is being repetitive. Be sure to
understand that no one is saying that you can not be critical. But this site
will not be overrun by the same people coming on the site day after day saying
the same negative things.
No flaming: If a poster come onto the board with the intent only
to flame, and continues to post nothing but flames or engages in no substantive
discussion, the poster's posts will be deleted and the poster will be banned
at the monitor's discretion.
No attacks on players or coaches. Criticism is allowed, and encouraged
if the shoe fits. But that does NOT mean you have free range to bash or alienate
a player or coach with your comments. If you disagree with how they played
or the effort they put forward, please voice your opinion and state why you
hold that opinion. If it's something you would not say to their faces, then
don't post it.
No attacking recruits: Just because a player may choose another
school does not give you the right to blast them, in any circumstance. There
will be zero tolerance on this issue.
No posting of commercial offers, competing websites or spamming of the
board will be permitted.: All threads will be deleted at the discretion
of the board monitor.
No posting or or distribution any material that infringes and/or violates
any right of a third party or any law. Post will be deleted and member
can be banned at the monitors discretion. This means no posting of premium
information from other web sites.
Do not give out your personal information on the message board or chat
room. Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information
(such as your email, phone number etc.) online --- for example, via message
boards or chat --- that information can be collected and used by people you
don't know. You give out your personal information at your own risk. We are
not responsible for any actions that occur if you give out your personal information.
