Im not bashing the mod's for making it, but it is pretty useless. Nothing is a rumor. i was wondering what everyone else thought of it, and maybe what we could put there instead.


MODS PLEASE STICKY THIS!

I agree, all of the actual rumors end up in the general discussion section anyway. The only thing that appears in the rumor mill is tabloids and jokes. I say we should keep it but change the name to something other than rumor mill.

I agree, Rumor Hill is stupid, since all of the Ideas are way out of hand, and all of the trades are so unrealistic. I think it is a waste.

Good idea..... It should be a web page as a joke not someone making up the rumor.

most people bash anything that comes onto the general discussion page...

so i think ppl should be able to express their thoughts at the rumor mill spot//

why is this an issue anyway??

Think of it this way, if not in the rumor mill it would be in GD and we all would have to weed through that stuff. Leave it where it is, if for nothing else, a place to dump bad threads.

Exactly..... So why have it? People are just trying to add a post and add to there total. It's all about stats on this board these days. "O i have the most # of post".

I like the idea of a thread dumper........... Or an Idea to keep FAMOUS THREADS?

The rumor mill is a good place for me to relay my dove valley info.. I also have another source who is a gardener at mike shanahan's mansion.. he here's a bunch of talk about us trading up to grab braylon edwards and mike williams.

Ps .. keep the rumor mill for what it is!! The Closest thing to the truth on this board! :beer:

Well if the draft is what you want to talk about, put that info under 2005 Draft/FA.

I don't see why this would get a sticky though.. the rumor mill is based on rumors:

Here's dictionary.com's definition of a rumor:
A piece of unverified information of uncertain origin usually spread by word of mouth.

Unverified... if the rumors were verified, it would be called... The Fact Mill.

There are others who feel the same about other thread sections here, We are a Broncos board, why have a section about other teams? If we are supposed to be a football board why have a anything but section?

Different people like different things about the board. If we did get rid of the rumor section, the that is put here, would still be, but it would just be clgging up the general discussion thread.

Just my opinion.

Of course we want it. It gives us some humor when we're all tense about the team to then read about Al Davis rumored to have mold coming off of him hes so old.


OF COURSE WE WANT IT!

no one actually posts real rumors 95% of the time. Most are just completely out of this world.

We should keep Rumor Mill just so that the rumors stay out of General Discussions.
