This place looks great but I think this place needs a smack forum...You know, a place where people can trash talk and stuff....Just a thought....

With all the rivalries we have that may not be a bad idea. If enough people want it, I'll make it happen.

I don`t think its a bad idea, but if we do get to many other teams, it may loose its Steelers luster
03-13-2005, 07:46 PM
No, it wont....Im part of a Browns and Bengals forum as well and the fanbase is always what the site is for....This will stay Steelers Fever but other fans will post...

Hey im all down for a smack forum. Its not holds barred when you cheer on ur team, and bash the opponent! and when its clowns week, or ratbird week, man look the hell out, its on !
It would probably be a good idea, to preface that forum, with a disclaimer of, not for the meek of heart! :D
Just so long as everybody knows that whats said in the smack, stays in the smack. And we dont all start hating each other overall ;)

You might want put up a parental rating, it may get ugly. My only concern for a site like these, is that we may get over run. I don`t want to sift through brownie or ratbird garbage just to get to the only fans that matter STEELER FANS

Yeah this is true. I used to be on another steelers forum, where it was overrun by ratbird and clowns fans (nothing personal brownskikass) but it was a pain in the butt to sift thru all the crap to try and talk Steelers football on a normal basis. If we do it, we'd have to limit any and all trash talk to that forum exclusively,and definately put a disclaimer on it I think. And an admin or mod presence in there would have to be a must to make sure it doesnt get to outta control.

Yeah, you don't want trolls taking over the site but a smack forum would allow me go 1 on 1 with Steelers fan come gameday :D

brownie "BRING IT ON" don`t bite off more than you can chew.
Seriusly though, brownie if you ever get a chance to go to Pittsburgh, even if you don`t like us. Go into Heinz Field. go up and see the superbowl trophies there are 4. 200 miles south of Cleveburgh is as close as anyone there will get to one

Ok after that comment we definitely need a Smack Forum lol

Go ahead start a forum for smack. Just remember as a Browns fan its only a good rivalry if the other team wins now and again so if you would help us by makingup 15 or so losses during the past three decades that would be great. As for smack...
1) Keep it on point, if you start smack in another area, take it to the ring and duke it out there. I can start to see some topics stray of point for the sake of posts and smack. If not interested in smack then I don't want to sift through gargbage to find out Clevelands free agent signings(more garbage).
2) Time it. Start posting Sun(or Thu) at kickoff and go until the gun of the Monday night game or such. After that the posts are deleted for next weeks. No need in taking up extra space, even if it is cyberspace.
3) Posts don't count. I don't need more drifters like BrAdYrUlEz or raiders4life stopping in and ranting for a weekend and showing potential new Steelersfever members who has pull on the board. You want to hold some weight then post on the big boards.
4) If you think classy then you'll be classy. If all you want is a place to type curses and such then why waste Mikes time. Make it good trash talk and back it up. If all you do is show us your expanded tailgating vocabulary then I don't think we need it.

chef makes very valid points. If all ur gonna do is personal attacks and curse words..what fun is that. Back up smack w/ facts,numbers, and valid information...and of course mixing in your personal opinion is ok as well as long as its done decently.
It's ok to get alittle heated, we're all passionate about our team. But just show some self control.
03-15-2005, 02:30 PM
And don`t go away after losses, take it like a man, because it`s coming
03-15-2005, 06:45 PM
Thanks for commenting guys! It helped tremendously! I used what you guys wrote to define the forum briefly. Hopefuly, it won't get to out of control or else we may have to enforce it!
03-15-2005, 07:07 PM
Well u know how us Steelers fans get when its rivalry week in the AFCN especially. Man it gets brutal, but we'll try to exercise control, no worries. ;)
03-15-2005, 07:11 PM
THe best thing is we usually win, so where in good shape
03-15-2005, 07:15 PM
As long as brownskikass sticks around we'll have some smack to talk about. but you know the ratbird and clowns fans..you'll always get a couple that venture into the steel town forums to talk some trash, so this should be fun !
