    Can we get mofome + pals their own forum?

    I log on to read about people getting screwed by foreigners at sportsbooks, get some picks, and share some insight, but instead I'm bombarded by threads calling for mofome, started by the clan of morons swinging from his nutsack.

    Mofome, with all due respect, I don't think you're that good of a handicapper. Too much of a Southern bias. The idiots you drag around are even worse.

    When I log in and see 8 threads with your name in the title on the front page, there is a problem. Don't your butt buddies know how to use the PM feature?

    I was laughing my socks off the other day when he advised getting on a ML with no regard to the price, just another mug punter destined to do his money like the rest of them.

    The Player's Talk forum seems to have taken on kind of a sports radio feel to it, with Mo as DJ/master of ceremonies. I don't know if it's better or worse then reading thread after thread about how this book screwed me out of xyz dollars, or what are the best ways to deposit into book so and so. One thing though, if these guys have the energy to keep it up at this pace for more than a month, I'd be impressed.

    MoFo is a good handicapper I think. I know he nailed Georgia the other night.

    I too am more interested in this, however I do laugh sometimes at the other posts. I would suggest perhaps splitting Players Talk or adding a new Heading of Bookie Complaints and Questions or something along that line. It sure would make it easier than trying to read thread after thread of non sense...

    That's the point I was trying to make in another thread, which has given me much heat and one Mod's warning. No need to start a thread "hey Mo" or "props to IQ"--when there's a perfectly fine PM system in place.

    Agreed, and I have no problems with any of these new guys/gals, but IMO its getting a little out of hand in the players talk forum. All the hi so and so and back and forth should be done pm or e-mail.

    I'm all for the idea of keeping the more "meaningful" topics someplace separate, however let's be fair to Mofome. JJ and his disciples were doing the exact same thing before Mo showed up with his posse.

    I wasn't aware that u are your "buddies" were forced at gun point to read the threads. It's too hard for you guys to overlook them and read something that interests you. You call "mofome and his posse" Immature. But you and your "buddies" are crying everyday in posts and causing man-drama each day. Maybe you should look into the mirror first, before you try to rip others. Just a thought tho......

    Agreed ... if MoFo and his crew irritates you ... just look to the other way ... I have seen his picks and they are solid hits ... so I personally think he is an asset to this forum ... even though Im just a rookie

    Maybe you should learn how to use the PM feature first instead of starting a thread "Yo Mo" or "sending love to Ice". The vast number of these threads coupled with the JJ fluff threads, leaves very little room on the front page.

    Do you find it ironic that you're complaining about useless threads yet you start one yourself? I would think that SBR would welcome all new members to this site. As long as nobody is verbally abusing a poster who really cares what they write. It sounds like you may be a little upset that you don't have any friends yourself.

    Maybe you should use the search function. Type in "cee" and u will find there's 0 threads started by me with those topics.

    Now get out a sheet of paper and write this down.

    *note to self* when making an argument an against a poster. It would be helpful if i knew what i was talking about before speaking.

    That's all

    Doesn't seem like SBR wants new members. If you are new , you get a band of resistance posters running you off the forum before you even get to say hello.

    It was worth it to prove a point. The daily howdy threads were getting out of hand and I had enough. My only regret was going off on Ice Queen who I apolgized to by PM. So we're cool, but the rest of the newbies should learn how to use this function too. Fair enough, friend.

    That's not the case at all. I can understand instinctively feeling that way when a few threads like this have been made, and particularly because those threads have included totally irrelevant personal remarks. There was a common theme in all of those topics though.

    The complaint is about the quality of Players Talk going down a notch. To be honest, it has. Now I know that's going to register to you guys as a personal attack, but it's not. We're all here for the same reasons, sports talk, gambling, with some OT sprinkled in. When that order is reversed, quality suffers.

    Not true. Now that everyone has had their grand entrance, we can put all this BS behind us. Maybe we start over. Cee welcome to the forum. Sincerely, HH

    PS when I said "you" in my previous remark, it was about the new posters in general--not you specifically.

    I get what you're saying. I don't personally have a problem with anyone. I use two other forums and when I go through threads that I don't seem interested in I just skip them. The only problem with complaining about them imo is that it just makes it worse. If I see a thread titled "I like gay men, do you?" I'm gonna skip it.

    Every site I have ever seen has one particular forum where people talk about all kinds of unrelated sports stuff. As long as it's kept out of the NFL, NBA, etc.. threads just skip over what you don't like.

    Maybe instead of having 5 posts all on sports each day we now have 7 posts on sports and 13 on "other" topics. It's all good

    what with all the drama-queens. i post about sports and gambling, thats what i talk about. ive won more than i lost. people complain about picks and sports, but ive won and posted 99% sports here and in the sports forums. it would make a bit more sense if your issues were based on facts, instead of fiction.
