I have a feeling there's going to be many more new threads in the Sun Deck that are simple observations that people make during the game that would normally go in a game thread. Goodbye Redszone, hello Reds Insider.
I like game threads as much as the next guy, but I understand that the majority of the posts on a game thread are talking for the sake of hearing yourself talk. The threads move so fast that observations get passed over because the play has moved on and most discussions are short and abbreviated. This is especially true when you get game threads that range into the 1,000 post area.
If you're really interested in discussing observations, post-game discussion threads are much more beneficial, IMO.
