    I think everyone on redszone knows the one simple step that would improve the quality of the ORG instantaneously.

    Sorry I'm not sorry.

    Man...some of the topics this season has brought upon Redszone is down right sad. The whole tone of this board this season has been absolutely sad. I miss the days of winning and having to discuss Choo and Dusty. Oh the good ol' days!!!

    The year we had Choo we quit with six games left in the season and then embarrassed ourselves in the one game wildcard. I know he's an icon among the moneyball crowd here but that was one of my least favorite Red's teams. i'd rather discuss Vada Pinson or Billy Hatcher.

    I actually have no idea what you mean......
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Obviously, it would be Dick Williams firing Bob C. Abmittedly, it would be a bold move by Dick.

    Some of us in the "moneyball crowd" weren't born yet to enjoy those other players and the 2010-2013 teams are all we've ever had...

    2012 team was great. Ludwick was a Thoroughbred. They got beat by the world champs. 2013 team spit the bit.

    Re: On the declining quality of the ORG

    Just an opinion but I would like to toss out the idea of getting rid of the "likes". It is well known that "likes" send a shot of dopamine through the brain which is why Facebook jumped on the premise to begin with. It seems like lately in the org there are some clear divisions of opinions between various groups of posters which leads to the same arguments or "bold claims" being made in repeated threads. These "bold claims" garner a bunch of "likes" or dopamine shots from the same handful posters and the cycle never seems to stop.

    I'd prefer to go back to the days where if you make some ridiculous unsubstantiated claims on RZ you just have to stand on your own in la-la land and think "oh, nobody agrees with me, maybe that was a ridiculous comment" instead of instantly getting the feel-good, stamp of approval "likes" because your post ripped on management or whoever and having nothing to do with the quality or factual backing of the post.

    Maybe the ORG could be sent to rehab?

    Is there a way to make it so that only people who are right can get likes?

    I propose a committee of ORG members be formed who then pour over every single like that comes into the new ORG "like queue" in order to approve suitable likes such that only committee-approved likes make it out of the queue.
