The Colts board at IndyStar is going through now what we went through a year and a half ago on the Pacers board, trolls, bad admins, etc.

So I extended an offer for their posters to try our forum instead because we will ban any trolls that try to follow them, and obviously we handle things better than the IS admins do.

That thread is here: http://www.indystar.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1122432

This thread is where we can welcome any and all people from IS who give us a try.

:welcome:

I hope some give us a try; I think this will take off when a few take the plunge; we have good posters, but just not many that post here yet (they tend to stay over on Pacers)

I post every so often (under a different username) in the IS Colts forum and read there every day. There are very good Colts fans in that forum, and I hope they take the opportunity to add to the number of Colts fans here.

Yeah hopefully some of the smart posters on that Colts board will make it over.We need more people for the game threads.But it seems to me that a lot of them like screwing around with the trolls.

As I got banned from the "other" board yesterday, I am relieved that there is another outlet to talk about the Colts and Pacers. Oh, I promise NEVER to tell a troll to, eat something them die! 'czar.

Thanks guys. I started posting on the IRL and NASCAR forums about 1 1/2 years ago but the IRL forum was completely taken over by trolls and idiots. I quit posting on the racing forums but moved to the Colts and Pacer boards, and now they are being taken over by trolls and idiots.

I had a busy weekend....Pacer game Saturday and Colts game Sunday. The tailgate party started at dawn yesterday. :D

I don't understand why the Colts trolls have stuck around so long on that other board. Usually trolls leave when the team they are trolling wins. :confused:

It's just really annoying to those of us who want to discuss our teams.

Well, I registered here a month or two ago, and given the situation at the RATS I'm ready to try the switch full time on both the Pacers and Colts forums. I'm actually surprised that I didn't get banned from there last night for coming to czar's defense. I'm not a friend of czar's and only know him from posting at the RATS, but I know that he was one of the best contributors over there. Seeing him get banned while the rest of those trolls ran wild was too much for me to take. I know BULLHOCKEY when I see it. :D

That happened to my original username too. I tried to reregister with it and it said it was already registered, even though it's no longer there. :hmm:

It's about 45 minute drive up I-85. Nice town. This about Harrisburg or Concord. It's in the 600 Racing's backyard where they make the Legend cars. there's a Legends track at Lowes Motor Speedway where they race every Tuesday evening. The they have the World Finals there as well. Actually there are 2 tracks. One on the front pard of the speedway and another out back.

If you ever come down to visit your friend, I can get you a tour of the Legends facility and some of the drivers. All sorts of Legends and racing "things".

The school was taught by Elliot Forbes Robinson. He has won a Bunch of 24 hour of Daytona races, and old sports car racer.

MSA2CF and I are the Pacers/ Steelers fans.

I was solidly entrenched as a Steelers fan prior to 1984, when Bob Irsay ripped the Colts out of Baltimore. For a few seconds, I was interested, then Bob walked into the Hoosier Dome and announced, "This isn't your team and its not our team, it's my team." I'd rather cheer for the Rooneys.
