As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, but if clicking on forum on homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • Drat! Foiled by the clock and a stupid rule!

    Atlanta Falcons vs Detroit (aaaggghhh!!!) Lions
    A real heartbreaker!
    Atlanta came within an obscure rule of choking again.
    Seconds left. Stafford throws a TD pass to Tate in the endzone. 8 seconds left, Detroit goes up by 2.
    But wait. On field review! Turns out Tate is 1/2 yard short.
    So close yet so far.
    Lions get one more shot, right?
    Wrong. According to rule, under this particular set of circumstances, there is a 10 second runoff. 8 seconds left in the game.

    Note: Of course I think it is a stupid rule. My team was on the wrong end.

    On the bright side, if your a Falcons fan, at least they took great strides in the whole choke syndrome. Had that last TD stood, I can only speculate on the headlines, let alone the team psyche.

    From my perspective, the Lions, even though they lost, have nothing to hold their head over. They picked off Ryan 3 times, incl. a Pick-6. And they actually came within half yard over pulling off yet another improbable upset, not to mention yet another 4th qtr. comeback under Stafford's belt. What they have shown is they are much better than predicted, and they can stand with any team in the league.
    But wait...I have been a Lions fan to long, and I am well aware that no team has described mediocracy, nor managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory better than the Lions. Meaning simply that a loss like this can work 2 ways...just as it can buoy their spirits and prove they are as good as anybody, so to can it get in their heads and essentially destroy an entire season.
