NFT: Do you visit any other Giants boards?

dep026 : 5/15/2018 1:38 pm
Or is this the go to one? If you do visit any other board, is there a particular reason?

With giants.com closing, BBWC basically defunct - it seems like Eric has almost monopolized the place to talk Giants football and he deserves some credit for that!
Fuck no  
Bold Ruler : Mod : 5/15/2018 1:42 pm : link
And you're now banned. ;)
Nope  
bradshaw44 : 5/15/2018 1:44 pm : link
Not even for other sports teams. This is the only site I look at besides news.
nope  
UConn4523 : 5/15/2018 1:46 pm : link
its actually the only message board I use, sports or otherwise.

Sports are so oversaturated that I have no interest in getting my news or have a discussion from multiple sites.
No  
JoeMoney19 : 5/15/2018 1:46 pm : link
and this is the only board I go to, period. The quality of dialogue here for other professional sports (at least NY sports) is great, plus there's some random levity sprinkled in. I wish there weren't limitations on what can be discussed here, but it's a great forum.
I started way back when on sportstalk.com..

which was run by Chad Ford and ultimately bought by ESPN (now insider). In the past Iíve used realGM for the Knicks, Scout boards for the Mets & used BBWC in the early 2000ís. Strictly BBI now.
Nope  
crackerjack465 : 5/15/2018 1:49 pm : link
BBI for Giants news, RealGM for basketball news.

No. This is the only sports board I post on, though I lurk on some others.

I was part of another board, but the owner of the board was just a flatout asshole and pretty dumb when it came to football. I know some others here were there and left.

MightyGiants

he was banned from BBWC and started his own board and let his old time friends run it. He is/was a know it all ass. Put down this board..... a lot.

and there are lots of really good people over there. I used to post there and like I said, a lot of great fans, but they are too far and few between. I was turned off by one of the mods who was just a complete ahole, but I do miss conversing with a lot of those guys.

There are a lot of great posters there. But its very poorly run. And trust me Keith there are more than 1 mods there that turned into a complete asshole. You wouldnt even recognize MightyGiants anymore.
I was banned from my other Giants board  
DennyInDenville : 5/15/2018 2:09 pm : link
It's run by virgin Incel degenerates and the posters have this belief that there little corner of the Internet is somehow superior and needs to be a secret. Very lame.

BBI is the best in the business. Plain and simple.

You were really banned from there?

I know some people don't like that we have limits here on what we can talk about, and that place has some good people there, but it's too toxic with the political talk. If you are on a certain side of the aisle you are the enemy, and the insults and flame wars that ensue...well, I don't even have the time or inclination any more...and I don't understand how all these years later they do as well. More than a few good posters have been chased from there because it's just too incendiary and childish.

Be thankful that this board has it's limits. There are a lot of places on the internet to satisfy your political/religious conversational needs.

No. I like to keep BBI going. I like SOME form of anonymity here in this day and age. I grew up in the good old days of message boards, e-mails, and AOL Instant Messenger.

What remains cool about BBI is we make fun of each other (like loling about dep teaching a class) just by what we say to one another. Just a bunch of words and letters. Every form of jabbing on social media is the same thing:

Person 1: this topic is stupid or I disagree with it

Person 2 and everyone else sifts through person 1's pictures looking for some sort of device to fire back at person 1 with. It gets way too personal.

I think I read that was the excuse as to why Giants.com was ridding way of their message boards is in favor of social media discussions.

I think I still have a profile I set up from there in 2003, maybe posted 20 times, ever.

Well said Jim, very true words. You are a wise man. Agreed some good people their but the toxicity and all that, BBI is like internet heaven with the new rules. At first I didn't like the BBI change, but it truly is a great place to visit and get away from all that.

I missed it Being gone for a while, especially since I was given no reason but I'm very thankful I was removed, it's been much better for my online time and expletive, and feels much cleaner and more mature.

I had gone to Giants.com about 15 years ago. Got Banned. Re-registered as Sock_Puppet and trolled the shit out of them. I also use the same profile to troll igglephans, but that is only done around the Giants/Eagles matchups or if the Eagles suffer an embarrassing defeat. After a few days of trolling and pissing off Eagles fans, I become bored with them.
None worth bothering with.

Iíll go on and look periodically but never post. Some are knowledgeable like UK Giants but I donít think most know all that much but there are some serious fans. What I donít like the most there is the political correctness. Everyone seems so sensitive to criticism that one almost walks on eggs when thereís disagreement.

Iím curious about what some old time BBI people think about BBI. It seems that many people donít post anymore and maybe donít come here anymore. I wonder if this is because there seems to be way more trolling than years ago. I see some thread starters and donít bother to read more because I know itís bullshit but they also infect what would otherwise be very good threads. Do others see problems here?

... Matt Allen mishandled the snap on the game winning field goal attempt. I wrote a rambling letter to Eric (back when BBI had a mailbag) and he talked me off the ledge.

If you're a fan of Giants history (and this is a shout out to truebluelarry, in particular) there's really no where else to go. If you haven't read some of the historical pieces on the team and franchise, you've really missed some great stuff.

Also, anytime something of non-football significance happens in the world, the Corner Forum is all over it first.

Game previews and reviews are amazing too. (If you want to see a good mea culpa, read Eric's review of the 2008 NFC Championship game - priceless).

I am a member of a closed Facebook page and TBH, it's pretty cool. Adults talking Giants football and acting like, well, adults.

No trolls, no dupes and even differences of opinions are handled without the insults or name calling.
This place is great

Even with the occasional board dictator or dickbag. Iíve been part of other sports message boards and none have ever been this extensive. Giants.com was pretty cool back in the early 1990ís but when the net got better, the chat room evolved into a crappy comment section.

As a Mets fan, I love the NFT thread options.

I think it has it right with its mostly Laissez faire approach while still having rules, so if you're truly an asshole you can't get away with it. I post on HFBoards for hockey and it's a bunch of 14 year old mods giving out infractions for nothing. You have to walk on eggshells there. Though I think they relaxed their rules significantly lately.

Keyser : 5/16/2018 1:02 pm : link
I started the Giants fan group in LA in 2007 and am still the main organizer. I didn't have the tools that I have now so I used to post the meetings once a week on the giants.com boards (and here as well). Each posting came with a disclaimer that I don't have any financial interest in the bar we were meeting and don't make or solicit any money for the group.

One week, my posting was deleted. No warning, no message to me, nothing. I had no idea at the time why it was deleted.

The website had no way of contacting any administrator/manager/official moderator that I could find. I messaged a random moderator and got no response.

The next time I posted, the next day I was banned permanently. No warning, no explanation, nothing.

I ended up finding an email for someone have to do with the message board and had the members of the group send emails. They probably got about 10 emails, not exactly an avalanche, but it was enough. My login was restored. Their explanation is that they assumed that I owned the bar, even though I wrote in every single post that I don't own the bar and they never bothered to just ask me.

For the most part, I don't go anywhere for sports except BBI.

I do participate in two others and one of them is a fishing site. It is a great site with great people.

Actually, I visit Facebook every once in a while. I moved to the west coast and most of my friends and family live back east. It is just easier to stay in touch that way and keep up to date on what everyone is up to - to much information?

But, BBI by far takes up most of my time online.
