      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

3 posts in this topic

Did anyone watch the super bowl tonight? As much as I was cheering against the patriots, mostly because I wanted atlanta to win for the first time,I was amazed at the comeback that took place. It was probably one of the most amazing events id ever seen in sports.

Best dam NFL game I ever seen!  The first half I couldn't take my eyes off the beating.  The second half I couldn't take my eyes off the inevitable come back.

"Originally, the site of all college post-season football games was at the Rose Bowl Stadium. The Rose Bowl stadium itself was a design based off of the Yale Bowl, which was a common design used by a lot of college football stadiums at the time. An aerial view highlights the bowl characteristic of these stadiums.

Therefore, college postseason games became known as "bowls," even though now they are played at various locations and in stadiums that may not have the bowl shape.

The NFL's Super Bowl was named as a nostalgic reference to these postseason college football games."
