And if someone has their feelings hurt because they didn't receive a message board honor, I don't think the problem has anything to do with the recognition itself.
I don't see the upside of a post like this:And that might be a tame version of a post.well, yada yada does post a lot, but he tends to take over threads and presents opinions as facts too often. I know he's popular with some, but hardly a hall of famer.
Brutus, you had an idea. IMO it's a bad one, but worth discussion. If it were put to a vote, you'd get a no from me, and from the general reaction, I think a lot of others agree.
Suck it up cupcake.
I think it's a good idea. Many people have said so, including Boss. Now granted, boss has some concerns about it, but if it came to a vote, my sense is more people think it's a good idea than not.
I'm with you on a lot of things Brutus, but not this one. I just don't see the need for it. For me it's not about anyone's feelings getting hurt, it's just that I don't see the point. They've memorialized Old Red Guard and that's probably good enough.
I do like the idea of the yearly awards and I nominate TRF to run it.
do we want one forum with 30 threads about Player X? and with such insightful posts as "I agree" or "that is interesting" and no follow up? you can obey the rules and still offer nothing to a forum.
I don't see the need to point to another group, put them on a yet higher pedestal, and foster even more division. I don't need to put Stormy in the hall of fame, in my mind he's there because when he does post, I ALWAYS read his posts. Same with woy, M2, princeton, who I happen to not like very much, no offense, he just rubs me the wrong way, Raisor, Puffy and TeamCasey. If they post, I read it. They are in my Hall of Fame already.
And my sense is if it were put to a vote, you'd be wrong about the outcome.
Suck it up cupcake.
If I can be serious for a second I'd vote a BIG no to this idea. I don't think we need yet another popularity contest, but thats just me.
I will say though that if I am overruled than I'd immediately nominate RFS - he's old and I'd like to get him in before dementia sets in. He's a moderator on another board ya know!

My two cents ---- Bad idea...No Redszone HOF...
My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!
I'm game for a Redszone Roast every few months. I'm sure we all have posts that we have made that we hope remain forgotten.
