This is a forum for the discussion for all things football. We do not tolerate the kind of douchebaggery you see on on other sites. We get informative interaction from Cris Collinsworth and his team (go to the home page http://footballproslive.com/forum.php). Scroll down to the "Contributors" section. Every one of these dudes has NFL experience and none of them is shy about sharing their knowledge with all of us.

You will find intelligent football discussions here. We are ALL serious football fans.

If you want to talk smack, go ahead. Keep the language clean and be prepared to back up your junk. You will be impressed with level of sophistication of this bunch.

It is OK to indulge your fandom.

We also discuss broader issues like the CBA & the potential lockout. We are hosted by our HMIC Cris Collinsworth (you know, the guy with second deepest voice on the Sunday Night Football broadcast) and a select bunch of dudes who actually buckled up their chin straps and played in the NFL. The perspectives these guys lend to the fandom of the NFL plus their first hand knowledge of the inner workings of the game is priceless.

I dunno what else to say. Join up. You will not be disappointed.

I have a Buckeye tree in my backyard. It will be devoid of leaves BEFORE Labor Day.

Q: If your school is represented by a 'mascot' that is the (very) poisonous nut of a tree that does not seem capable of closing out a season, who are you?

A: A Buckeye.

I love me some MGoBlue. All my life.

I have always found it to be teribbly ironic that one of the greatest rivalries is between a poisonous tree nut (Buckeye) and a rather large and fierce weasel (Wolverine).

'The Rodent V. The Nut' does not quite carry the weight of Michigan V. Ohio State.

Me too msclemons. Plus, we steal a lot of your jokes. I get a LOL almost every day from you.

Andy and I were driving back from the Hall of Fame game when we were both stumped by somebody who was hurt on the Chargers, (NT from North Carolina I think) neither of knew who it was so we excused ourselves for not knowing he was hurt. THAT is exactly why we started this site, but it works much better at educating us than we ever could have predicted. I can't tell you how many things in the broadcast I said that came directly from conversations on this site. Trust me though, this is only the beginning.

Agreed. When I told a couple people I was playing Fantasy Football in a league with Cris and Andy, their jaws dropped. They totally thought I was full of it until I showed them the thread.

Side note- I've yet to see a single post from someone who wasn't OG. Do we have any regulars who aren't OG posting here yet, or was that the point of this thread?

3/4 of our members are OGs, but we're adding about 10 new members per day. The core posters are still the guys that got here in week 1 from Simmons and PFT, but we are seeing more variety, it just takes a while. The important part is that traffic is going up slowly and there's plenty of activity on the board. we're adding users slowly, but we don't seem to be losing any so the board is headed in the right direction.

The only thing I find somewhat disturbing is that, even though we're had traffic from all over the world we don't have a single hit from Greenland. Come on Greenland.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

This forum sounded like a good idea. Very few posters and not very friendly to new people. Like all forums i guess the old timers beat up the new people who do not share their view as some kind of right of passage. I can live with it.

If we can get like another 20 or 30 people posting it would really make this place jump.

As far as i know i have not been edited or admonished in any way from posting and that is great.

2) Stir up arguments with the existing commentariat
3) End up shunned and ignored by the community
4) Make self-pitying posts about the old meanies and poopyheads

You'll find people often respond in kind. That's just as true in life as it is here. When you act like a troll and a jerk, people will tend to treat you as such.
