I'm not begrudging anyone a little football talk here. I just think the ramifications of making it more prominent need to be considered more carefully before the log starts rolling too fast.
I think if you keep the football talk within the greater context of Redszone, that should keep a lot of the trolls out. One of the biggest complaints that you find on NFL boards is that many posters object to "overmoderation." The fact that you can't swear, engage in ad hominem attacks on players or owners, or belittle other posters here might be enough of a deterrent. On the other hand, it might still require a bit more moderation.
If they do add a football board here, I'd probably keep it small, as a service to Redszoners who like to talk football, rather than trying to attract Bengals fans to a "Redszone-like" football board.
