Still not catching the ever-contagious WHINE-FLU!!!
I came over from rivals and as far as content 247 is a lot better. They never had "inside sources" and reprimanded you if you tried spreading news from said sources.
Their message board is populated by a select few that hog every thread and their is no discussion because of the negative tribunal.
So glad I made the jump.
Blackhawks we have threads on all those sports...we keep going on our own. You looking for articles and interviews?
Is the woman's volleyball thread called the booty house.
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.

My biggest issue is that from a technical side 247 has way too many problems. Building the forums from scratch was a mistake. I haven't seen them incorporate anything useful that doesn't already exist in other forum software. This was very much a situation of reinventing the wheel, and it hasn't gone all that smoothly.
I like getting a little bit of extra information from the other writers, but honestly very little of it is interesting to me. I enjoyed the poster/mod from the MSU board coming over to talk football with us a lot more than any article a 247 guy has provided us.
I don't ever look at the national stuff because it's worthless. This includes TBB and the 247 rankings. The composite is a nice idea, but it would be nicer if 247 had a better system to begin with.
I will also agree that the free trials aren't a positive. Back on the old Bucknuts when they did promotions like that it just lead to a flood of terrible posters. I'd rather do cheap promotional memberships than free so that you at least have to commit something to post on the boards.
And I shall rejoice in victory for another 365 days over That School Up North.
