That doesn't seem too cumbersome to me.

    I never thought of people heading off to the game or even work later. I still think that three pages etc should be spent on the ORG to not clutter the opening of the game threads. Especially since we have been hitting the lineups pretty hard with negativity lately and will probably continue until the manager sees fit to comply with us.

    It was figured out.

    If you have something new and insightful to add regarding lineup ideas, you are free to post it in this forum. However, the threads that start three hours before first pitch containing the same old gripes about the lineup du jour are done.

    Fair enough. I didn't realize it was a conscious decision rather than an oversight. I still feel like they should be opened earlier than 15 mins. before gametime; but yeah, it's tough to cut down on the lineup gripes otherwise.

    I guess the only insightful idea I might have is to move the discussion to chat for those who want to talk about it. Of course chat isn't ideal for response to what other people say (can't quote and you have to be in the room the entire time), but if enough people participate (SDers are obviously welcome too), I think it'd actually become the solution to the problem.

    Ok.. I didn't realize that it was an intentional effort to get the board to stop talking about lineups. If that was the intent, it makes sense. Thanks for the explanation.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    If it was original, thought-provoking material, we obviously wouldn't have any problems with it, but the previous pre-game thread lineup "discussions" added very little to the board, in our collective opinion. It was the same people complaining about the same things each and every day.

    I can see that point.. I didn't mean to sound sarcastic in my reply.

    We've been down that road before to ugly results. RZ turned into a civil war between the "haves" and the "have nots".
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
