Ladies and Gentlemen,

There is to be NO POLITICAL DISCUSSION on these forums of any kind, and at any time.

A thread was started about Kiwi making comments regarding Rush Limbaugh potentially buying the Rams, and 2 days ago, a thread was started about Danny Clark being on Hannity's show, and both threads went on for several pages and were nothing but political talk.

We have stressed this over and over again that politics and religion are subjects that will never be permitted to be discussed on these forums. It is strongly suggested that topics that fit into those decriptions are not posted here, because the thread starter will not be posting again afterwards.

Consider this the one and only warning. We'd like to have a place for such things, but as history has proven, most folks(not just our posters, but people in general) are incapable of discussing those types of things without having the conversation get heated and out of control, and quite frankly, it's not worth the inevitable trouble.

Please do your best to avoid starting such topics

Thanks
Mods

just delete them when you see them

the OP should not be held accountable for that thread getting political, and no one got red in the face in it

it happens every couple months, just delete it.

I agree. OP should not be held accountable for the way a thread may evolve and change direction. Just delete it with no fan fair.</P>

I agree with bansaw on this. The OP was just reporting what Kiwanuka said. It then turned into politics. Sometimes it's just inevitable. It's not like someone is saying Vote for Mr. Magoo which is an obvious political statement. We tend to get caught up in discussions that stray over the line without anyone intentionally ignoring the rules. After all, we're a bunch of shut ins lol

Wouldn't a perfect world be nice. But the reality is quite the opposite and I'm pretty sure the moderators delete posts for man reasons as part of what they do.

the NFL has a prospective buyer of the Rams in Rush Limbaugh and we are not allowed to discuss it on an NFL teams website? NFL players show up on News channels and we are denied the right to discuss it on an NFL message board? I didnt know we lived in Venezuela..... Too funny.

It's a little silly. If we were discussing ex ball players and it evolved into who was a better actor: Alex Karras (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alex_Karras)or Fred Dryer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Dryer), it would go on for 100 pages. But people fear politics as well as religion,this is after all an NFL message boardand rules are rules.

As soon as the name Rush Limbaugh was put into the thread, people immediately started with his politics and forgot all about the fact that he was trying to buy the Rams. Same thing with Danny Clark being on Hannity's show. The thread went straight to Hannity and Danny Clark was an afterthought.

Trust me, it happens quite frequently. It's just that sometimes, we don't always catch them quick enough and they evolve into 20+ pages of politics.

Venezuela? No, this is a privately owned island. It's a privilege, not a right, and that goes for all of us.
