    [quote user="izbo1"][quote user="Mod_C"][quote user="gumby742"]

    [quote user="LT= Lawrence Taylor"][quote user="NYG_inul"][quote user="LT= Lawrence Taylor"]I feel that the Mods are some of the best I've ever seen. They are very lenient with what they let go around here... I have to agree with Tommy. Every thread shouldn't become an Eli bashing session.

    It's not taking away their freedom of speech, it's taking away the annoying practice of thread hijacking. They can still make a thread about Eli. They aren't telling these people to stop posting. They're saying stop bashing Eli in threads that have nothing to do with him. A thread about upgrading the WR shouldn't turn into Bash-A-Manning. You can talk about WR without throwing the QB in there.

    Example...

    Thread: Let's Upgrade the WR Position

    Post: What should we do?

    Reply: I would like to see us get Braylon Edwards from the Browns. He's really good. If we can't get him, there are people in the draft we could pick up like Hakeem Nicks or Kenny Britt

    No Eli was mentioned in that.

    It's possible for all you one-trick dogs out there to learn some new things and post about stuff other than Eli...
    [/quote]

    so how is your example bashing eli? i dont get it. maybe im a little slow
    [/quote]

    No, my example is not bashing Eli... my example was an example of a thread that you can make about WR without mentioning Eli... this is what's getting on the Mods nerves..

    Thread: LET'S GET BRAYLON!!!

    Reply: y do u want braylon because he is 6 feet well if eli could actually throw to people and not suck at life then we would be fine with what we had and not have to invest in a 6'4 option just so he can throw high and feel good about himself


    My example that you quoted was showing people that it is possible to have a conversation about the Giants without mentioning the name Eli Manning... it's possible folks, let's start doing it...
    [/quote]




    Hold on a sec. So how do you say that a certain type of receiver suits Eli better because Eli has problems hitting them in stride without you considering it "bashing".




    So how do we address Eli's issues without mentioning Eli?

    [/quote]

    To answer your question, posters are still allowed to make Eli threads about his issues if they please.

    We'll have to see how this all plays out...

    Going to what LT posted, I think that if someone posts "I would rather have a tall receiver because Eli has a tendency to throw high" would be okay because it's true.

    It's just hijacking a thread and turning it into an Eli bashing session that we want to avoid.

    We'll have to see how this plays out...

    lets see if i got this then, if there is a post saying what type of reciever is needed, i can post something to the effect of we need a physical reciever to account for eli who is not the most accurate of passers, so the reciever can fight for the ball and make the play.

    Then if other posters start calling me out on that i should just start a new thread on elis accuracy issues to avoid hijacking that one?

      if he starts on eli in a non eli thread and it hijacks the thread, then yes it is his fault

      Its a very simple request, don't turn every thread into an eli thread. Shouldn't be any debate on it just don't do it, there are plenty of threads to put the garbage in, stick to them.

      What kind of WR should we get shouldn't be used as ANOTER way to hear them bring it up. In laymens terms, just stop being annoying

          Enough of this now. I would ask the other Mods to please stop humoring this thread with replies. Tommy put the point across, we've heard from the guilty parties and everthing has been taken into account.

          Bottom line, those that do hijack threads, do know exactly what they are doing. Don't do it and there won't be any issues.

          We never said you can't be anti-eli so stop trying to use that as a crutch to spur the argument that your Freedom of Speech is being shut down. This is the internet and we have fans from other countries on here as well.

          Just end it.

            what are you upset that since some members of e.m.p.a got promoted to mods that their little rule, to avoid their feelings being hurt by truth, is now being challenged. This rule is clearly unfair in that when we discuss offense and playcalling we see eli as part of this problem and point it out then its such a issue for so many on here that eli may have some issues that they fight it tooth and nail and the thread goes off topic.

              Tommy Ribs isn't a new mod and hes the one that started this thread.

              Stop playing the martyr role because its not working. TR is right in his assessment and if you keep continuing with this your posts will be deleted and/or in certain situations you may go on a vacation for a little bit.

              To repeat, we don't care if your anti-eli or not. We do care when you hurt the quality of the boards which is exactly what your doing. Accept it or don't, the points have been made and we're going to follow through on it.

                [quote user="izbo1"]things that eli is relevant to that i will continue to post about him in are;

                1. any eli thread obvious
                2. Any thread about recievers needed or needing improvement
                3 any thread that contains the words free agent and we can't afford as by asking for the riches contract in the nfl to not even be top 10 he makes himself relevant.
                4. play calling threads as he is involved and its not always the play calling its execution.
                [/quote]




                That's fine - just understand that after you write those posts, some of them may get chucked.




                It may be heavy handed, but you and some others are forcing our hands.

                  You are not starting trouble.




                  But let me re-iterate, what we want to do is eliminate the same 4 or 5 guys from hi-jacking threads that are of different topics into an Eli Sucks discussion.




                  We know they don't like ELi, and they are entitled to that opinion, we just want to keep on topic.




                  Have you ever had a nice thread going and then a troll hi-jacks it and the next thing you know there is a 3-way argument?




                  I want to try and avoid that.




                  There was a nice thread going about getting a new #1 receiver and then it turned into a 5 page argument about how Eli sucked vs the Eagles and that it was his fault he missed Steve Smith, not Steve Smith's fault he missed the pass.




                  After 6 years on this MB it was the tipping point for me, and it is the right thing to do.




                  We have 9 even handed and fair mods on here that can do the job, and at the end of the day provide a better experience for the 99.99% of likewise fair minded board members.

                    Izbo - honestly b/c of your history, you and some others lose the benefit of the doubt and lattitude we would give to other people.




                    I am not bashing you, but giving you honest feedback. B/c you live to crush ELi at every opportunity it jsut becomes noise. And when something is too noisy what do you do? You turn down the volume.

                        not that i can recall. but yea that would suck if it happened.

                        i mean if i was talking about How McNabb is like the Drew Bledsoe of quarterbacks... and i asked if someone if it was true or not true... or if they agreed... and then we get an argument about.....

                        Eli Manning is the Jake Plummer of Quartbacks.... then id have to be okay with that because its the same thing that i am kinda talking about and i remember someone making that argument before.

                        but i am sure you are talking about something more severe correct?
