So.. just like the entire OT?

Tiger Fred: The Weekly Golf Thread is pretty much an IM thread as well.

What goes into anchoring one over the other? If an Admin approves of one, and not the other? If it's based on thread content like you stated above, then it should be an across the board rule, and not one that is selective; especially if the thread doesn't break any other rules.

What does the OT have to do with this discussion?

I agree it looks like an IM thread, but if you see how many topics are discussed over the week and how much substance goes into them, it's more like a discussion...

Sometimes, but only when nobody wants to talk about golf. As soon as golf gets back on topic, the IM crap stops. You know that.


Don't mess with us Captain.

..that happens in the betting thread(s) as well. A mixture of both.

What will happen, though, is a total swamping of the MSB with betting threads all throughout the weekend.

The issue is still being researched but the weekly thread started out like an IM thread.

There was not content to the thread.


As with a lot of other threads in the MSB.

If IM'ing is the issue here, I would argue in-game LSU threads are the worst offenders. I get their importance to the site(the threads) and the reason they're stickied but this foolish anchoring business should be consistent if IM'ing is such an issue.

At LEAST 60% of those threads consist of

Correct me if I'm wrong please.

Well, if we had a betting board, we could get rid of the IMers and send them to the OT where that shite belongs.

The first page is mostly just reserving spots for this weeks picks so whatever gets posted.

Nothing new.


I got a PM saying keep thread on topic. When have I ever talked about anything but bets in the bed thread?

Good idea though, IMO


Talking about online betting is 100% legabl.

We could ban links to any sites that allow gambling.


Would be a HUGELY popular board.

You will also have to wait until the feds opens it up. If I was Chicken, I wouldn't touch this with a ten foot pole.

To not have a bet board because of this is pretty retarded. If you don't think it will get enough traffic or attention, then so be it. But there is nothing illegal about talking about and handicapping games. Yahoo and ESPN have "Odds" pages now. All we're doing is discussing them.

We aren't promoting betting websites or "pick packages" or anything retarded like that.

Betting forums can be popular spots, and it could definitely drive more traffic here. How is that a bad thing?

I support the Bet Board.

Paging Admins!

I'm just curious if you guys have looked into the potential of this board. Thought? Concerns?

Please weigh in on the matter so we can either get something rolling or have some closure.

Thanks
