    Default Well, I guess I'm moving in for the duration....

    I don't have a Pistons board to call home anymore (I made a decision to leave), so you'll just have to put up with me posting in the game threads. Sorry.

    Besides, if we pick up some wins, it might be a good thing, karma-wise.

    At least now when the trolls ask me why I'm here, I can tell them where to shove it....

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Division Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008

    Welcome home our red-headed step child.

    You know the Mods do an excellent job here. There's only so much stupidity you can take even from people who support the same team (see RATS).

    Where did you post before?
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Thats not important. Besides, if you really wanted to, you'd be able to find out.

    I'm just going to take everything into account during the offseason, and decide where I'm going to start anew.

    I wish I had any technical knowledge, I'd start a new board myself.

    I've seen the board where you had been posting, but I never really got a feel for it. The structure confused me, and I couldn't really get a grip on the board's overall personality.

    So, I'm wondering... why did you leave?

    Same reason I left Indystar. No management. The Sassans and JOneal7's of the board were taking over, and there wasn't any management whatsoever.

    Well, throughout the year, we had a 39-13 record when I started the game threads, and 19-18 when I didn't. I started the thread for game 1, and I haven't started one since.

    I guess its a silly superstition, but considering the difference, you'd think we would just stick with what was working....oh well. I'm a very superstitious person.

    Since that forum has pretty much turned into a Lord of the Flies remake anyway, I thought I'd see if I couldn't apply the good karma here for the rest of the postseason. Not that I want to start any game threads mind you, but maybe it'd be better luck if I found something else. I had some pretty damn good mojo working this year. I just have to figure out how to apply it here. Hmm....

    Hmm, maybe a reverse-jinx thread would do some good.....

    I've been to your board Kstat but never posted. But I actually like having you over here.

    TPTB could always add another board. Is www.pistonsdigest.com available? I'm sure somebody's still got the graphics from April Fools.

    I enjoy reading all of you posts. You are a very loyal Pistons fan, but you are not a classless ******* like other fans of other teams I see in other message boards. I think it's great to read a good b-ball fans perspective of our rival. I glad your here because it's been a good series and I think it's only going to get better.

    Agreed BBall, and I didn't mean to imply all folks were bad at RATS. As a matter of fact there are still members there who I really respect and wish they would have made the transition over here (ROJO you deserve better). The where are they now thread is a good example of some very good missing in action posters.

    Seems they stopped posting at PistonsPalace (the first link for the Pistons on the fundamentals page) and the Pistons Rival board says it's no longer there. I did find this board for Detroit and the format is alot better than half of their boards. Admins might want to add this onto the list.

    Sorry to hear you leave the Piston's forum Kstat. It's wierd that place use to be a really neat place to visit everyone seemed to really get along but over the last couple years has really changed in terms of nature/ lack of quality posters. I guess all good things come to end. Nice of you classy pacer fans to welcome Kstat with open arms. Salute.

    Agreed. I didn't want to put up with it anymore. The class of the forum went down the drain this year. Basketball discussion turned to flame wars.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    I categorically deny everything.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Yeah, it really did. Every thread seemed to eventually come to an off topic debate about two peoples opinion and eventually the whole thread would slowly becoming just a pissing contest.

    It's kind of sad, I remember when I first found the forum when it was still on the free press website and the people and threads were really great to read, very similar to this forum. Lately I haven't even reading post over there and instead just decieded to lurk over here now. If you ever find a good alternative Pistons message board please let me know and if you need help starting one I will be more then willing to help, I might be able to assist with the computer/techincal issues...
