But if #1 admits that they don't have a link it's not OK for #2 to belabour the point and demand a retraction.

that i would agree with also.

i'm all for fun too, i think i demonstrate that regularly. but i also think you may be waaay over exaggerating your concern here. i don't think members are being "intimidated" when they make a claim as to understanding the mindset of a third party (Mike Wallace's father, for example) and another member asks for some substantiation of that, some quote or statement in support of the first member's claim. that's not intimidation. nor is that substantiation "demanded" as you state, nor does it happen to "everything" that is said here.


It is intimidation (or at least an attempt at it) when someone demands that the OP either provide a link or retraction.

I've been on this site for six years now and this forum has been free of this sort of thing until fairly recently.


From the experiences I have seen in this forum, requesting for a link hasnt always been for the purpose of debating. I myself have asked for links for the purpose of educating myself. Sometimes when members are referencing past events it is hard to remember how they exactly transpired. This allows for better clarification I think. In the end, I this forum is big on having positive and informative discussion, usually driven by fact and sources.

I do understand your concern, related to support for an opinion. Its not always going to be there, it is an opinion after all. I will take note of this "bullying" as you called it, whether it is related to a poster actually wanting to educate themselves with more fact or if it is just an over zealous poster trying to influence the conversation away from your opinion.

I dont necessarily feel that it is "intimidation" in all cases, to request source information. As stated, sometimes members just want more information if possible. Its only natural to be curious and to examine all data available.

I believe there was an attempt to revive it last year, but there simply wasnt enough support to coordinate it.

A lot of work goes into putting it together.

thats a bummer. If you hit up NFL Gen, you can find quite a few posters who sport their Awards in their sigs, or in the text underneath of a post.

Well, as they say, and a phrase we are all to familiar with: "There's always next year". Laughing

Since I registered after the season started, is/are there any mid-season/playoff contests (Pick 'em, 5000yds or bust, etc) that go on in the forum?

Not generally, except there was a year where we ran the survivor contest 2 or 3 times because people would end up getting eliminated pretty quickly (I think one year we did it 3 times and I won twice). If you have any ideas, let us know.

we typically "re-set" the games once the playoffs start and everyone ends up even, yes. the weighted Pick 'Em game becomes very high stakes, as to bet levels. high rollers only!

as to regular season games underway, bring it up in those threads and see what their hosts will allow. maybe you could start at the average level of all the present participants or something.

yeah, that was a progressive Survivor game where you had to pick one winner in Week 1, two winners in Week 2, three in Week 3, etc.
