So I'm bored, and I know a lot of you are too...

So here's a game to keep us all entertained.


Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to infiltrate an enemy message board and pose as "the brother of an agent involved" (or some such) who has inside information about that teams affairs. You win points for each post in which your rumor is talked about seriously. Post such as "This is probably fake, but let me give you reasons for why I think this would be great" count because you've clearly hooked the poster.

YOU LOSE POINTS for every poster who calls your post out as fake - thus your rumors have to be on the edge of believability. Style points will be acknowledged for the more outrageous rumors that are believed.

I don't know who will keep track of the score... Who cares... Let's just have some fun. The winner's mastery will be apparent...

I saw your light bulb go on on this a couple hours ago in another thread

I propose one rule: No tricking Raiders fans. It's not fair, it's like pretending to throw a ball for a dog to retrieve while holding it all along. Sure, it's funny .. but it's also a little sad. Plus it's probably a violation of the ADA.

Yeah, I was wondering about that...

I'm thinking a tiny url replace might mask the source. I don't think there's any way around that though. Any thoughts on how we can link to the rumors here but keep them masked?

You should award a small number of points for every time you Rick-Roll somebody to a link that "outlines the terms for Cowher's deal with the Chiefs."

Make people copy and paste the links ... e.g. espn.com instead of www.espn.com

Or post it with the code tag

Code:
www.espn.com
Donīt know if tiny url does the trick as I obviously donīt have access to the resources you have access to.

The code tag will work...

I'm scheming something up. Redskins fans are suckers for this thanks to their jackass owner.

I guess itīd also be wise to not pick AFC West forums like Chiefs Planet, Raiderfans.net and whatever forum Charger fans are meeting at as I guess we have "guests" from pretty much every AFC West team and forum there is.

Probably the best and easiest way to link to the "rumors" is to create a sister thread dealing with offseason rumors around the NFL like Junkman's "Around the NFL:" thread.

We can name the thread "The Official Offseason Rumor Thread" we will be able to openly post links to these "rumors" w/out drawing obvious suspicion, as long as every one treats that thread as nothing more than what it is titled as.

Then all game discussion, scoring, complimenting and insulting can take place in the game thread, while only referencing "The Official Offseason Rumor Thread" and not the actual "rumor" on another board.
