It would be nice if the Mane was mostly about, you know, Broncos football. All these politics, pop culture, name-calling, and "humor" threads are getting a little tiresome. You visit the site hoping for some quality football discussions, and all you get are bits of Fark, RedState, and Digg all over the place.

This is an exciting offseason for the Broncos, and there's more than enough material to keep the site focused on Broncos football....

Every article about the broncos (or bears) that gets published is posted here. What more do you want?

I disagree.

Even the "other NFL news/discussion" thread gets bumped regularly with real news, but never gets more than one or two posts per day.....even though it contains all the major headlines from around the league.

And, as was mentioned above, it's not like we're omitting anything here. All the relevant stories are posted. The problem is, it's mostly fluff. Not much we can do about it if there's nothing to really discuss that's new.

i understand your point, but at this point these OT threads are actually helping this forum...

the Mane has a big division of McD lovers and haters and Orton lovers and haters...

every bronco related typical turns into a Orton/McD bashing/defending thread...these OT threads allow some of those (us) guys to actually agree with each other on more light hearted things...the Seinfeld/The Office type threads are helping...

on the other hand, even more fights break out on the serious issues such as race and or politics...but all in all the OT threads are helping IMO...

For the love of God, there is a long-snapper article on the front page. LONG SNAPPER! That's the rate of broncos news flowing out right now.

LONG SNAPPER.

And you want to get rid of off-season topics?

This place would be a ghost-message board if that happened.

Dude, if there's anything going on about the Broncos, it's gonna be here. If it's worth discussing, then it will be discussed over and over and over again.

Until training camp starts there's just not a lot of Broncos stuff to post about. Unless a Broncos player gets a DUI or something (off-field issues of some kind) there ain't a lot happening...

How about we speed up time to make it September? That sounds good to me. I enjoy the off topic threads. It makes it so the summer doesn't go VERY long...

I don't see it. The problem is there is NO NEWS related to the Broncos. I hate this time of year for that reason. But you can't fix that by preventing folks from getting blue in the face on the Mane over, eg, a one trillion dollar a year deficit. The only thing that fixes it (not the deficit) is training camp . . . counting the days.

Here's an idea...

Post Broncos-related articles and generate interest in your threads instead of generating whiny appeals to the mods to shut something down that you arent interested in.

You are whats wrong with the US today. Something you can avoid is in your periphery, and you dont like it. So whats the solution? In your mind its to have the governing body regulate it out of existence.

The basic difference between socialism and capitalism.

Because the in-season mode works so well! The only difference btw the 2 is the mods work harder to get the OT topics off the board during the season and still they can't keep up!

Exactly. Get past the fluff and the multiple posts about the same damn thing and you really don't have much material to go over in the offseason. That's part of the NFL baby, it's a short season, there's alot of downtime. Just go back a month or so to the draft and there was hardly a topic on anything but the draft. When camp starts, I'm sure you will see the football topics pick back up. Till then, just chill and enjoy.
