FanPost

A few requests of BON users

Lately some of the content around here, most notably the "fanposts" has been lacking in content or timeliness.  Now I'm not the most frequent poster or reader around here but some things are really getting a bit annoying.

1)

First I want to talk about the whole "classless" thing.  I am so tired of hearing about class. Whether or not Stoops ran up the score, whether or not Stoops was an ass in his victory interviews,  Sooner fans have no class, Ohio St is classy, Buckeye fans have no class, Texas Tech fans are classless for storming the field, Billy Simms has no class, the heisman committee has no class for leaving out Harrell...

Can we just stop.  It's like this is everybody's new favorite catchphrase.  And as a 'Horns fan, I know we have a little more brain power to come up with other points of argument than measuring class.

I cringe when I read/hear this.  Talking about class is pretty lame.  It's in the league of comparing academic achievement and comparing college towns.  It doesn't really matter.  It just makes you roll your eyes.

2)

I'd like to see more focus on our team, you know, the LONGHORNS!  People keep talking about OU, the BCS, strength of schedule, bias, the Heisman, who to blame and who not to blame.  The thing is, we have another important game that we can look forward to and discuss/blog about.  Enough with all the woulda, coulda, shoulda, whatifs.  The past is in the past and there's nothing we can change.  We can learn and move on.  We are Longhorns fans first, at least I am.

3)

Like many have tried to say before me, please take time to look around BON to learn its features and how best to share your opinion.  We don't need 4 redundant fanposts a day.  We don't need fanposts with one link and "You must have 75 words".  Not trying to be a dick but the clutter is kind of annoying.

 

All comments, FanPosts, and FanShots are the views of the reader-authors who create them.
