That ain't cool. Phillip Thomas was a guy we talked a lot about before the draft.

Glad Nacho emerged out of nowhere.

I applaud the op, it was a good laugh. before i clicked it i highlighted the link and it looked fishy. Title seemed too simple.

Reminds of when someone created a we signed Gronkowsk threadi. Title should have been, "Denver Broncos signed Gronk!!!!!!! or Denver gets Gronk!!!! WOW!!!

It's like Roh said, this could easily have been put in the general NFL news thread, but instead OP wanted to create some headline generating chaos....needlessly.
Thank You. I came in after you changed the title, preventing me from subjecting myself to a full blown heartattack.
Appreciate it.

I was trying to figure out why a fourth round safety for the Redskins was a big deal.

We've not had a single comment on training camp today, and someone titled a thread, simply, 'Von.' Honestly, I think the 'Von' title is probably more annoying and with mine at least there would have been a little excitement around here.

Just sayin'

Camp was canceled out of respect to D Thomas losing his leg in that horrible accedent you posted about last night. There is hope the doctors may attach a wheel to the stump and he may be able to return by mid season and he might be even faster but his cutting will never be the same

Its not "exciting"....it creates needless panic and stress for people for no good reason.

Do not do it again.

You guys should change this name to something more catchy like Mod Squad!

..and then you realize it's a joke and you feel relieved and lucky that your star player is alright.

I mean i get that making a thread like "Peyton Manning's done for the year" and then being all "Ahahahahaha, just kidding a-holes!" is clearly stupid and unecessary. However, although my title was misleading, it's completely true and I think that we should be allowed to operate under those guidelines for the sake of humor. Especially since we are not yet in the regular season.

This is from the OM guidelines:

Please use descriptive post titles – Please use the headline format for posting, and not just (for instance) a player’s name. Give some context about the player or subject that you would like to discuss. We like our thread titles to enrich and illuminate the topic being discussed in order to enrich the forum and give people the opportunity to use discretion in their selection of threads to read. Moderators may change thread titles to more accurately reflect or provide context to the discussion.

False news – Posting fake news is strictly prohibited. Few things will get you banned quicker than posting a fake story during a sensitive news period.

A Thomas is out for the year with a Lisfranc injury. That part is true. That player is not a Bronco. It is not amusing to read a thread title where a potential Bronco, and an important piece of the offense, is being reported out for the year. You open the thread and its some assbag safety for the Redskins. It is not cool, and if it happens again you will get a vacation. Be specific in the thread title.

Because a thread title created to make it appear we lost a star player to season ending Lisfranc surgery only matters when said season is underway?

People have been banned for posting fake or misleading news threads in the past. Most of those have been during the off-season, when speculation is especially rampant.

Boring day at work today. Guess that means it would be cool to yell out that I see a gunman coming down the hall! "Excitement" for excitement's sake, ya know?

Oh, and I meant Linda Gunman, who works at the legal office across the hall. Come on.
