We are all suffering from what I believe is the worst period of fan-dom we have experienced in a long time, if ever...........this season, for me, is far worse than 90's and early 2000 losing teams, simply because those teams were just crap.................this team isnt really crap, its just so poorly constructed and run, that it breeds such resentment, people are just beginning to not give a crap.
This is having a very bad affect on this board, as I and others like me are just not wanting to post here anymore...............not because the team is losing and we are bandwagoners or bad fans but just because its the same old crap, every day, game after game, decision after decision, post after post.
So, we cant change the team or how its run..................but we can change this place and how its day to day running affects and motivates us.
So what do we do?..............I think we should suggest, however random or pointless your suggestions may be, just spit out anything that comes into your mind about what needs to happen to this place for it to return to some of its former glory.
Heres a couple from me =
1 - Those who are continually involved in the petty, useless, fact-less, pathetic arguments..............need to take a break, have some time away, leave all together if you want.............just no-more of the "Woe is me" or "Everyone is against me" or "Im better than everyone" bull sh*t..............because that is making things SOOOOOO much worse.
2 - A little extreme this one..............but I think we should possibly stop new sign-ups, heres why =
A: There are alot of new people here who I have no idea who they are or where they came from..............we all know the best thing about this place, and the best times we have all had here are when we are familiar and comfortable with one another.............when we understand and know who we are talking too and can take the odd comment for what it is, and not blow our balls out because it "sounds" off.
B: I can imagine some new people signing up at a time like this and making things worse and finally driving the nail in the coffin of those who are on the brink of leaving.
This could be a troll, a returning retard child (you all know who I mean) or simply just a dumb ass fan who has no idea what he/she is talking about but thinks they do.
Those are just a couple of my thoughts..............you guys know Ive always been a sort of protector of this place and wouldnt know what to do if I didnt have this place to come to and vent, and although Ive been one of the ones to kind of abandon this place, I do feel bad about that and dont want to anymore.
So what do we do? do we continue down this road? do we do nothing? or do we all talk like adults, get our concerns out in the open and try to get this place back to somewhere that we all want it to be............ie: a place that WE WANT TO COME TO, and enjoy conversing with all the different types of people who inhabit it.
I posted this in the "Announcement" thread but just do me a favour and try this little excercise =

1 - Think of either the most fun/enjoyment you got out of this place in a single moment or thread, it could even be a long period of time where you and a bunch of guys just had some great laughs/disucssions.
2 - Now think of where it was (forum section wise) and who was involved.
Now Im betting that A: It wasnt in the Warriors Basketball forum and B: Atleast half of those involved who contributed to your fun are either not here or dont post much anymore.
