What’s legendary about Bootz outside of his post count?

He’s great for the boards. So are guys like rbf, DN, Caradoc, MJW. Solid contributors, but not Legends. IMHO.

Not to derail your post, but there are no legends on this or any message board I've ever visited or been a regular of. The only legends I see here are people that are legends in their own minds. This all smacks of exclusivity. I thought that was a big no-no among the Liberal crowd? Oh well. Enjoy smacking yourselves on the back. This is exactly the kind of crap that kept so many people away from the old official board.



I’ll have you know that the surgery to remove two ribs ain’t cheap; and the extra flexibility I have from that won’t be going to waste as I pay myself on the back on a pre-determined 90 minute schedule.

I don’t see anything wrong with recognizing long standing posters who provide excellent content - whether that’s in in-depth football analysis, political punditry, or laugh-out-loud humor. Personally I don’t know that I fit any of those categories; but I’ll put down twenty bucks that says I can drink any of you sissies under the table. And make you enjoy it.

The Scotch Punch won't be ready for a week or so, so....Zima? Chateau Lafite? Somewhere in the middle like a Chateau Droughin or a Smithwicks?

Nor do I. And I happen to think you fit that description, as well as others mentioned in these posts. But then a special forum is created that only the "chosen" can access? Kinda like having separate water fountains. I'm sure it's all meant in fun, but exclusivity breeds contempt. I mean, if we at BZ are truly the "family" that many here feel we are, then there is no room for such exclusiveness. It just sends the wrong message. My opinion only.

I think this entire "legends" thing is a long time attempt at just being funny but it really comes off as lame and exactly how you describe. I don't think that's their intentions but I 100% understand where you're coming from.

Oh, I agree. I'm sure it was meant to be humorous. I even said as much. It honestly doesn't bother me on a personal level. However, in the spirit of community and considering all the divisiveness we see in the media and social media today, I still think it's in bad taste.

I'm sure it's all just innocent bs. But that's not the point. Anyway, I've said my piece and I'm done on the subject. I'll go back to ignoring that it's even there.

To play devils advocate here, how would you feel about, say, the local VFW all of sudden opening their doors to the public?

Or a marathoners club including Joe Schmukatelli from down the block that did a 5k?

Neither group is bein intentionally exclusive, but membership is earned via previous accomplishments.

Is it? I mean some of the "legends" barely post, aren't overly intellectual, nor do they add much to the board. They are just friends with the other self-appointed legends.

That is a damn good example of a straw man argument.

Agreed. I don't think the majority of people here would have any interest participating. Luckily though there's no real consistency with it now a days than in years past. From what I remember, and I didn't get on the old board until the 09 season, it was borderline cyber bullying. We don't have anything close to that now.

Ok, Bootz can come too...BUT he must renounce his nomination for Legend status and formally declare himself an ally to all non-legends and an enemy to the Legend crown..

It’s also funny that we are whining about a legends forum being “divisive”. It’s a message board staple since the beginning of message boards.

What a time we live in.

Back at Pewter Report, membership used to be $30 a year, and it included a print mag and access to the insider board. That was a board worth going to, as only people who were really into the sport and generally knew what the hell they were talking about were likely to lay down cash. That board had almost no infighting, trolls and other crap like we see here or on their Red Board, and it was very active. I think I only posted there, never went to the Red. They they dropped the price to $10, which was basically nothing, and a lot of clueless posters and fighting started. Some long time posters left. Then they stopped charging at all, and the board allegedly became the spot where SR and JF would give inside info. But all it really became was another Red Board, and almost all the long time posters left. Constant fighting, trolling, etc. Eventually I stopped posting there as it's easy to get sucked in. Happens here too, just less.
