    Re: Bengalszone's thoughts on Redszone

    The problem with Bengalzone is the posters have a very limited knowledge of the game. Baseball has been studied and dissected for over a hundred years. The NFL is just now getting statistical analysis like VORA. That's not even mentioning the amount of young, new fans the Bengals have. Football is an incredibly complex game and yet you have talking heads on ESPN that tend to value statistics in a completely wrong way. Go to a Bengals game sometime and listen to the discussion of the game from these people. It's to the point where I would much rather watch the game at home than deal with the immature, vulgar, and drunk fans. I lurk there sometimes and even with their signatures and profile pics you can get a quick picture on style of most posters. It's much like the fans at the Bengals games that have no clue what is going on. Usually the loudest is the dumbest in my experience.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    You've made it clear that the words are not yours, but it's not clear whether you share the opinion. Does that post you quoted speak for you, too?

    I think he made his opinion clear in the Bengalszone thread where he referred to the Redszone folks in a very unflattering way. Seems to me like he was trying to stir the pot.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    I heart it when people complain about how much they hate a message board. If you don't like RaisorZone, don't post at RaisorZone.

    It sounds like you have an issue with counting.

    Maybe so, but it would be nice to get a firsthand answer from the OP. The longer that this grenade of a thread is allowed to roll around without even one reply from TheWalls, the more likely it is that your suspicion is correct.

    In the Bengalzone thread, he claims that he has been banned from RedsZone. If that is the case, we will not be hearing from him again.

    But that post was made before the first post in this thread. The "ban" was probably just a vacation from the board that ended long ago.

    He may have been a member when he made the initial post, but I checked the list of members and he is no longer listed. That would seem to indicate he has either left for reasons of his own, or been asked to leave.
