  • Time For Some Honestly Here.....

    Unlike the "Moderating Team" whoever that is.........let's be honest. This has nothing to do with alternate social media, they can do that regardless.
    This is about sticking it to Giants fans.
    I've been on other team's MB's.....NONE of them has anything near the activity ours does. I would guess the post count on this site approaches or exceeds 4 figures per day. This is a very active team message board. The most active I've seen.

    It provides a forum for Giants fans from all over to talk about their team. And Giants fans have participated in huge numbers.

    This is simply about being lazy and not giving a damned about fans. It started with the building of that horrible stadium designed exclusively for rich fans who can afford sky boxes or expensive seats in the 100 section. While everyone else has to form an expedition and hire scouts to get to the upper levels.

    It's the final "screw you" from Giants management to it's fans.

    Deny everything. Admit nothing. Make counter accusations.

    LOL. That was funny. And is ridiculous.

      +1 but I'll always be a Giants fan.
      "Sir, I was wondering: did you happen to catch the professional football contest on television last night?"
      "No...I didn't."
      "Oh it was most exhilarating: the Giants of NY took on the Packers of Green Bay and in the end the Giants triumphed by kicking an oblong ball made of pigskin through a big H. It was a most ripping victory."

        Social media can be better or worse. Some of the nicest and harshest things are on social media. Get the popcorn ready.

          In all fairness, Message Boards are being closed across the Internet. I think we will see a lot of boards close soon. They are all going to social media. But not me!
          Players come and go on the Free Agency Merry-Go-Round, but the N.Y. Giants will always be here!

            Or it's just time to move on?

            Twitter, Reddit, Facebook are all the new era of message boards. vBulletins are pre-historic now. It's hard to get over, but it's the reality we're in.

            Why would the org continue paying $200+ a year for a forums license when there's free outlets such as the ones I listed?

            Not only that, you have people like Die-Hard single-handedly being a ******bag and tampering with fans ways of interacting with others. Even if it is a little over the top, when are we not passionate about our team? Are you going to hand out an infraction at a tailgate because 2 people disagree?

            Let's add in the fact that Roanoke, while respected, his main job is to copy and paste articles from different websites here. That was the main activity daily here. Is that really being productive?

              I tearea can hate it and wish there was a way to save it
              Football has been very, very good to us.
              After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
              But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

              # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

              1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
              2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
              3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
              4-New York Giants!!!
              5-NE
              Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                  I share your view of Die-Hard, ha ha.

                  To be fair, though, Roanoke has served as a one-source funnel of all articles Giants, which saves a lot of time and has provided at times rich sources for thread debates. So, it was productive in that way.

                    RF has been great with the articles. I'm sure some of you missed out way back when the articles had pictures too.
