    Here's a poll to allow everyone comment on their overall satisfaction with the level of discourse here at RedsZone.

    Question:

    What's your opinion of the current tone of the board?

    I believe the tone is a bit heated. However, I think this stems of everyone's PASSION for their REDS. The Reds have not been in a playoff race in a while, and I think everyone (me included) wants everything to go perfectly to make sure the REDS reach the playoffs!!!

    Re: Survey of RedZone

    Its been awhile since I have posted but I'm on here everyday single day...several times a day and I don't have any issues with the tone of the board. You learn real quick who the legit posters are and likewise you learn who the blowhards are. I read those posters who are legit and ignore the others.
    Probably one of the greatest features of this messageboard is the ability to preview a message before pulling it up.

    Re: Survey of RedZone

    It's goint to be heated. Think about when you go to a game in August this year compared to last. If we lose tonight, won't you be more dissapointed than you were last year when we lost a game in August? You'll be more upset about bad lineups too or poor coaching decisions. Winning doesn't solve everything for fans, it makes things more important.

    Re: Survey of RedZone

    I went with the first option. I bounce back and forth between the first and the second options on this one. For a team that hasn't had a winning record in the better part of a decade, everyone seems rather negative. Also, I'm getting really sick of the Clayton-bashing and the "PLAY EE!" stuff. It's quickly become repetitive for me, and the EE related posts are rather silly in my book. Early in the year, EE and Lopez were an error-mess. Aurillia is the veteran, and the kind of guy that I want on the field in August in a season that counts. EE will likely start for us next year, or at worst, be traded for a valuable player.

    As for Clayton, his numbers at the time of the trade were very similar to those of Felipe Lopez, with slightly better fielding. If Clayton is the weak point of our team...we're in pretty good shape.

    I love the forum though, don't get me wrong. It's just more critical than I was expecting when we're having a good year. But I guess that's the nature of a fanbase.

    There are trolls and people with poop in their pants everywhere. It's never really bothered me here- I prefer to converse with those who's attitudes I admire. The others can pound sand with an oar for all I care, but they'll never get a rise out of me.

    Re: Survey of RedZone

    I voted in the middle. I see the points of the negative posters and the optimism of the happy posters. I think you need both sides to have a good message board. I don't skip posts because of the poster (maybe I haven't been around long enough).

    If everyone agreed with everything that was said, wouldn't it be very boring here?

    I think it smells very nice but I prefer Speed Stick since it is a little cheaper.

    I think there aren't nearly enough options in this poll.
