at least at the "offical" message boards....

www.forums.mlb.com/n/pfx/...&tid=21750

course... first 5 topics of the Brewers boards..

"Official Go Rox thread"
"Brewers gonna fail"
"the official Go Diamondbacks thread.....lol"
"Zambrano quote about Mark Cuban"
"Sunday=Loss for Crew"

typical hitting coach gathers his hitters in a room and is telling them to get a good pitch to hit."
typical pitching coach for the same team is in another room at the same time telling his pitchers, "Get ahead. Throw first-pitch strikes."

Yeah, I ran across that an hour ago. Our About Us page was being admired. No comment on my pic or hawing's pic, though.

This should probably be in Off Topic or Issues. I think I'll flip a coin. Image

Well, I suppose this reminds me of why I am here and not over there.

Wow, I haven't checked there in 3 years. That place has a nasty troll infection.

Not surprising that they have nothing nice to say. I guess they have a beef with having an actual discussion.

I refuse to be offended by a group of people who don't wipe after sitting down in the can.

It's funny that the vast majority of anti-BF.net posts are started by people banned from the site for some reason or another, as is the case with the two people slamming the site in that thread.

DieHOFDie...his terminology and beef with Brewers19 sounds familiar, like from last night. That kid needs a role model.

If I had Braun's pee in my fridge I'd tell everybody.

Everyone take a good long look. This is what message boards end up like when the moderators don't enforce the guidelines.

Anyways, nice to see that Carrie still remembers me.

I knew there was a reason why I stopped going there. Of course, DieHOFDie only bothers to tell part of the story and leaves out the part about him saying "yeah, I broke the rules...whatcha gonna do about it?"

That's awesome. Trolls slamming Brewerfan.net is what drives decent posters over to our site.

I have never posted at those boards and never will. After coming here for a number of years I have been spoiled. Call me a snob, but I prefer intelligent, civilized discussion without stupid AOL speak and cursing. In other words, Brewerfan staff and mods: keep up the good work. And thanks.

We should have a "Not About Us" page where we profile some of our choice banned users with favorite quotes.

I know you're half joking, Brian, but that would be great. Maybe we can just stick it in the WOAH SOLVDD forum.

I've heard some of the same things that Brian alluded to over there... troubling to say the least. Though, I know that there are a lot of people here that list Waterworld among their favorite films.

They've absolutely got our number over there. If you can't beat 'em, join em. Down with Brewerfan.

I really don't like the message board vs. message board thing because each forum ought to be able to fill a niche. And to be fair, there is good discussion over there along with good long-time posters. But you have to wade through stuff about Prince being fat or stereotype posts about the commissioner's religion to find it.

The problem seems to be that mlb.com doesn't seem to have any real vision as to what it's boards should be 'about'. There's a picky cuss filter that's largely ignored by the moderators, and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to what gets deleted and what's allowed to stay. You'll scratch your head because a thread is deleted, yet another thread with a big fat all-caps cuss word in the title is allowed to sit for days.

If they did this right, mlb.com could brag up the fact that its format is unique to the message board community. Instead of Brewers discussion on the Brewers board and Pirates discussion on the Pirates board, it's Brewer fans talking baseball, Pirates fans talking baseball, etc. There's a lot of potential to be able to talk baseball from the points of view of 30 different 'communities'.

I see Brian gets over there for a few posts every week. I'd jump in a little more often, but it's gotten to the point where their login takes 4 minutes on a dial-up account.

Here's to hoping that mlb.com gets its act together. There's a lot of potential. Right now, it's an embarrassment to Major League Baseball and its teams. I know that if I were a Brewer employee rather than a peon participant, I'd be embarrassed.

I guess I should now take a minute to see what Brian had to say. Image

Yikes. I think DieHOFDie might have some daddy issues to work out.
