    Apparently it's time to remind everyone of the long-standing NO TANK TALK policy we've had in GDT's for quite some time.

    GDT's are for fans of the team to gather and discuss the game much in the same way you'd be if at the game yourself. We do not tolerate cheering against the team from outsiders and in that same note we are not permitting it from our "fans" to cheer against a win or the team's success. It is by definition trolling (see below).


    Complaining, griping, or just being in general grumpy about aspects of the game has and always will be part of being a fan of a team performing poorly but there is a very distinct difference between that and actively cheering for a negative outcome. It not only creates dissent among our members but often becomes a spark point that leads to some general nastiness that requires moderation and infractions. We don't want that so please contain the tanking talk to outside the GDTs and still be mindful you are inviting criticism from fellow fans who support the team no matter what in those other threads as well.

    Finding a silver lining in a loss when it comes to the draft lottery is one way to help ease the pain of another unsuccessful season for some of our passionate fans. I would hope fans on both sides of this issue can respect the other.

    Folks who just can't help themselves with the pro tanking posts will most likely find their posts deleted and if that hint is not observed, they will find an infraction to remind them of this policy and potentially a thread ban.

    The entire moderating team appreciates your understanding in this matter.

    [We will stick this thread after today so it stays up on the front page]

    In an effort to tidy up we will unstick this. It does not mean the rules have gone away. No tanking crap will be tolerated. Especially since the team is good.
