Crazyman here. For the non-ESPNers what had happened is ESPN has decided to can their Forums section. Most of us were on the ESPN page from the message board and then forums, but now I guess we will be coming here. The one thing I'll really miss is the ability to reply to a particular post so that a thread can have a few mini-conversations going on without it getting too confusing.

Thanks for all the love guys! And good to see you here Crazy, Kane and JJJ.

The ESPN forums could be very trolly at times but I did like the format of their threads. And there were a collection of about 10-15 guys that were really good posters over there so hopefully they all make it over here. This board is a little different but not that bad. I like the links to easily find your posts. Sometimes on the old boards, you'd have to search and search for an old thread. Gotta love the fantasy MMA stuff too.

And we got dancing bananas!

You can do that by just selecting "Quote" of the post you want to reply to

The difference at ESPN was that it basically made a "sub-thread" for lack of a better term. it made keeping up with a sidebar much easier

The kids from ESPN remind me of that typical cute child that you want to give candy to and throw into a windowless white van

Only in this case, you're the one that would wind up with the giant butthole.

Way to welcome the newbies.

JG - What's up! Glad to see you here. I'm hopping back and forth too for now. The LoneWolf is on fire on the ESPN board today. Boy will I not miss total d-bags like that.
