This is something I wrote as a suggestion (take it seriously) for the new guys who keep posting... So for those of you who are new, please read this whole thing.Part 1, the overview:
Listen I realize you guys are all Eagles fans. I'm not going to question your fanhood but us here do find it odd you've come out of the woodwork now that we're the Superbowl Favorites. We realize you want to post your thoughts and we realize you have the right to do so as a new member of BGN. Here are some tips.
Part 2, the Community:
I may have covered this above a little but it's a fair thing to say.. Here at BGN we pretty much are a family, we fight, we tell each other to fuck off, we threaten each others health, we bitch and whine. But do not come on here and pick a fight with one of us, it's a quick way to get on everybody's shit list and from the on it's very hard to redeem yourself, very few have done it, the only one I've seen able to do it was eagladelphia who's a very productive member here.
Now, come in here and stand your ground, but use facts. When all else fails use NFL.com and use the stats from there. We're all stats guys, if you're going to come in here and say Plaxico is better than Maclin then you sure as hell need some numbers to support that.. YOUR OPINIONS ARE NOT FACTS... Please remember this when you post.
Part 3, Impress us:
You have something to say? By all means say it please.. You have an idea about a move the Eagles should make? Please share... This is what we're here for, to share ideas and talk not only Eagles but football in general. How can you impress us a little? Well here's 3 quick ways.
Part 4, well wild_eagle why should I listen to you?
Simple. I'd love to see some new guys come in here and incorporate into the community, you can never have to many football guys in one place, you can never have to many good fanposts, and you can never have to many Eagles fans. New guys=New ideas=Learning, say you find a new way to track a DE's play by the amount of yardage he gets by each stat, that'd be something I'd love to know about.
