    Default Thanks guys

    Just wanted to say "Thanks " to the owners one more time for carving this little niche of the internet out.

    It's much,MUCH nicer to have a 15 page game thread and share it with friends than to wade through 60 ages of crap

    Here's to a win today!

    Right back at ya....I have mixed feelings, I want Redskins fans to find our little corner of nirvana here, but not too many of them that we lose the 'tight knit' feel of the place

    Just my perception, but it seems the other place went downhill after about the 5000 mark. No offense to good posters that came on after that of course

    Go peek at ES. It is chaos....

    I still like going there but you have to pick your spots.

    Great post Sarge, it's so not "extreme" here and that's such a good thing. On another note, I'm watching the SNF game on DVR delay and they just said "Giants and Cowboys kick off next" and my 4 year old son says BOO Cowboys! Will teach him the Giants thing later but my goodness, I'm a proud Dad tonight .

    I'd forgotten how much fun it is to do a game chat with a reasonably-sized group of friends. Even if today's was a bitch-fest, it was still a blast

    After the esteemed owners here filled me in on some history I spent an entire weekend checking out...well, the "other" place. Thanks guys for this place. BTW, it's drawing just the kind of fans you wanted-I like it here myself.

    I have expressed my gratitude to the staff here already but I don't have any problem saying thanks again.

    It takes me a couple of minutes to formulate my long winded and boring responses. I can usually pull that off here before I lose my train of thought or the conversation has gone off in a direction where my comments aren't relevant any longer. I can also have a difference of opinion without having things degenerate into a pissing match.

    I met some cool people at the other site. There are some butt heads too. The butt heads tend to downed out the good posters. I popped over there a couple of days ago and realized why I hadn't been back in a while. Just want to talk football with people who are passionate about the team as I am and who don't act like a bunch of bums fighting over a park bench. I've got that here.

    There's a lot of love in this thread.
    Mazel....good things....

    Seriously, you guys did good. I still feel a kinship with ES and will probably never stop participating there on occasion, but more and more I find myself checking this site first, and staying here the longest.

    Yeah, you're right about feeling a bit of a kinship with ES. I was one of the first few hundred members there, and there are still a lot of great fans there, but for it was just too big and cumbersome.

    and you get tired of people who you've never met before on the board flame your comments or hijack a thread just because they can.

    Yeah, thanks a ton guys. This place is great. From the smaller, more intelligent diatribe, all the way to the Braveheart quote on the main page. Yeah, I noticed that, I love that movie.

    Now let's hope the team takes care of business tomorrow and kicks the crap out of the Lions!!

    I was a blatant homer, but now a debbie downer looking for love.

    As this season ends and our hopes of a successful playoff run were long ago crushed, I find myself looking back thinking that this may be the most difficult year I have ever experienced as a Redskins' fan. I did not come into this season with any absurd expectations, I knew we would not win a Super Bowl, but I did believe we had a better team than the one that showed up this season. With the hype over the past 10 years of a SB contender just a player or 2 away, reality set in and I took the wait and see attitude a few years ago, but this year I still had higher hopes than waiting to see what our draft position is as the last game of the year approaches.

    As we quibbled about the quality, or lack thereof, of this team throughout the season, I often found myself embroiled in intelligent, informative, and respectful discussion on this site. I did not get bogged down while in conversation, by the negative banter that I have seen spewed about on other sites. As difficult as this season was as a fan to watch, the opportunity to come aboard BGO and discuss Redskins' woes was rather therapeutic. It afforded me the option to discuss Redskins football with like minded, obsessed fans who were every bit as frustrated as I was, not get caught up in arguments with opposing teams' fans having no real basis for discourse.

    For the opportunity for a bit of therapy, if you will, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the founders of this site and the members who challenged me to think and offered a little support as we labored through the most difficult season as a Redskin fan I have experienced.

    Thank you for founding this site! And thank you to the members who make this site a haven of intelligent discourse!

    Now, what do we do in the off-season? Speculate?
