      Insults/Name-calling will not be tolerated   11/19/2016

      It's great to see the boys earning their way into the playoffs this season (barring a Colorado-would-be-proud collapse).  What a night-and-day difference from way back in November.   With the playoffs, we typically see more traffic/visitors on the site, usually from the opposing team's fanbase (especially from the Oilers).  This is just a reminder that stating your opinion is fine (it's exactly what these forums are for), and friendly, good-natured ribbing is OK, however, name-calling and insults will still be a major no-no and cause for the Banhammer to warm up.  This applies to all new guests and visitors as well: you're more than welcome to join the party, but civility is house rule around here.   All insults/name-calling will be met with a zero-tolerance approach, regardless if you are a new person to the forums, or have been around since these forums began.   First-offenses will be met with a moderator-needs-to-approve-your-post for 3 days Second offenses will be met with a week-long suspension Third offenses will result in a perma-ban   If you have any questions regarding this policy, or would like to voice your concern about it, you are absolutely free to contact me directly.   We all love this team, and this game.  Let's all hop on the Bandwagon, enjoy a few beverages, and ride this wave of excitement as far as we can.   --  Kulstad

Manti Te’o’s dead Girlfriend & his heartbreaking story is all a Hoax.

Not sure what to think because the story is still coming out.

What were they or what was he thinking??

I saw something about this on the tube today...

If Te'o did perpetrate the hoax, his draft stock just plummeted...

I've seen him in mocks anywhere between 1-15, I can't see this being something that would completely diminish his draft stock. The main issues that are always constant in players and if they fall is how they behave both on and off the field. Guys like Moss and Dez Bryant fell for legal reasons and because there were question marks on whether they were coachable team players, other guys have had off field issues that haven't really hurt there overall draft status like Peter Warrick. Odd story for sure, but I don't think it will do enough to discredit what he could potentially do for a team over the next best guy at that position.

The plot thickens... :lol:http://www.cnn.com/2013/01/31/us/manti-teo-hoax/index.html

Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, says he was behind the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax and claims he was in love with Te'o, but the athlete knew nothing about the ruse...

Last week, Te'o told talk show host Katie Couric that Tuiasosopo had called him the day the story broke to confess. During the interview, Te'o said he doubted the voice he knew as Kekua was a man's voice.

Then 'Dr. Phil' McGraw got involved... :lol: McGraw said his show had contacted private contractors for the FBI and the Secret Service, giving them a voice mail message that Tuiasosopo said he had left for Te'o. "They looked at everything from voice intonation to tonal qualities" and concluded that "the chance that you are the person on that voice mail is like one in 10 million,".

This story just gets more bizzare as it goes along... :)
