does it seem like a bit of well, craziness/shrillness, has overtaken a threadstarter or two over on the SDUT boards in an unsettling way????

Could be just me. And I'll sort of leave it at that, (since I've met the guy(s)) but I wondered if anyone else noticed.

A lot of posters have just left boards which are heavily moderated into oblivion or innundated with functional illiterates and have made the pilgrammage to the mecca for Chargers posters.....here. :icon_toast:

LOL! Thanks Trump! Naw I don't have a ticket for this one, hoping to make at least one more this year though. The stein was an xmas gift from mom, and goes to parties w/ me. Being in the minority as a Bolts fan up here in the SGV I try to find every way possible to represent.

Have a beer and a smoke for me though guys I'll be w/ you there in spirit!

GO BOLTS!

Bo bugs. :tdown: He is one of the main reasons I left.

I rarely even check that place anymore; which is sad considering the time I put into helping that site grow.

It has no soul.

BO?

I will say this, you were one of the best moderators I ever saw. You could disarm a fight with a simple PM. Never threatening, really cool! I like FO as well, I am sorry things are not well between the two of you.

I still check out the UT but im not there as much as i used to be.
Me neither. After Shammy gave them the finger, I followed suit as well. :icon_rofl:

To me it makes no difference other than where one feels more comfortable posting. :tup:

UT has their own groove and so does this place, Chargers.com and GlorifyThePast etc etc .....

Hey it is all good and it is a matter of where do you have the best time in my book as well. :icon_toast:

We all need to remember we are all part of one Charger community. If someone posts at GTP, thats cool, we are all Chargers fans. Same with Charger.com and the UT.

Its all good.

I thought the UT was shrill and crazy months ago. Couldn't say about the UT now. Haven't been back much. This is where it's at, 12B. :cool:
I just go wherever Chispa goes. :eek:

I read three forums. This one, Chargers.com and the old NFL Forum. I don't post much at the NFL Forum, but I like some of their regulars.

I only go to the UT when someone sends a link to check out something, and that is becoming more and more rare.

The UT is now populated by a bunch of n00bs or previous lurkers that have taken to posting in the vacuum left by our wake.

75% of them are now what Shamrock and Trumpie deem as "ball-watching stat monkeys".

Ever since the Foley shooting at the beginning of last month and everything else that has occurred since then, I've only posted there maybe 20 times since then.

I have confidence in Thumper, ChargerRay, and the other mods so that they don't allow this forum to become chaotic and pissy as that one has become.

Yeah the UT is pretty beat nowadays, BUT you'll have to admit that back in the day (before the format change) that the UT was the shat! Joe Football, Flutie fan #1, Guffy. Even after the change it was still VERY,VERY good, because of the posters that are here now (too many to list and I don't want to exclude anyone). The UT was a GREAT place for out of staters to get up to date info on the Chargers.

I think we ALL cut our teeth on the UT, and I will be grateful for that. But times change. I will say that this forum reminds me ALOT of the old UT and I haven't had this much fun posting and reading posts in a LONG time!!! So to all the old guys and the new ones :icon_toast:

Yeah, it is really cool that a lot of quality people have migrated here.

And we could make this place even better with a few prudent "poster trades" with the UT.

For instance, I'd take War Pig for Trumpie, straight up. :yes:
