    thanks
    I'd have to say that's over the line as there really isn't any direct correlation between that and the 'Fins. Discussing the signings, cuts, injuries, etc. of other AFC East teams does affect- if only indirectly- the 'Fins. Something that has absolutely no bearing on the 'Fins whatsoever should be kicked over to the general NFL forum which is where you come in.

    Since AJ's paying you the big bucks to be a moderator, I guess you- and the other mods- will have to make a few judement calls on these threads.

    I think during the offseason there should be more allowed. But to draw the line.. the bills signing Spikes is big, that should be allowed, but the bills signing joe schmo from someone's waviers is not. also on the Plummer thing to Denver, in a way that should be allowed, I mean some of us had hopes of him signing here. Just like if Griese signs with Chicago.. that would have some interest in Dolphins news and discussions.
    Personaly I like having most of it here so I don't have to look around to find everything out. Guess I am just lazy..
    Of course when the season starts, it's all FINS.

    here's a better example: http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slu...ball&type=lgns

    should hypothetical discussions of Price's replacement be something on this board now ?

    As long as this board keeps its name I am fine with it. However, we should be able to include AFC East issues relating to the Fins.

    Vote your opinion
    I guess I think if you are talking about the Dolphins logically the AFC East will come up every so often.

    Well, I look at it like this. Why open this ONE forum up? Keep this one Dolphins only, then create another for AFC East. I'm still confused as to why people would come to a Miami Dolphins forum to talk about different teams.

    If people want to talk about the Jets or the Bills, etc. then they can go to one of the many other message boards out there. Its not that difficult to comprehend.

    I'm not trying to be an ass, but its just that I come here for discussion about the Miami Dolphins. Not any other team. I do not visit any other forums because of this.

    So if AJ decides to open this up outside of the Miami Dolphins then I will most likely go to another Miami Dolphins board. I dont want to, not at all. I enjoy this site and board. But I don't go to an Italian restaurant if I want Chinese takeout.

    Ok, thats my peace.
    Ask me about the Miami Dolphins "Game of the Week" during the offseason.

    My feeling is that so long as people remain respectful it doesn't matter what team they root for... I enjoy talking football with fans of the Bills, Pats, and Jets... I mean, we have so much history...

    And it's kind of like doing community service at a home for the mentally retarded... Except at the home it's easier explaining the obvious...

    I don't mind leaving a thread about the Bills for a while, then moving it...but I don't want these forums to be a discussion board for other teams fans. They have their own place to discuss that stuff, and it doesn't need to be here.

    Obviously keeping everyone informed on the happenings in the East is cool, I am just not going to leave it in the main forums for a legnthy discussion.

    That's how I feel...but you guys have a big voice in what we do around here.

    [i]That's how I feel...but you guys have a big voice in what we do around here.

    exactly, the point of this thread/poll was to determine what the majority of you would like to talk about in this forum. From the poll most of you would like to talk AFC East, it is just a question of whether that thread is about issues on an AFC East rival that only tangentially related to the Dolphins or if you are discussing how the Phins will deal w/a rival.

    I like 87's idea of leaving AFC East stuff around for a while and then moving it if it is not talking Phins (not just using the word Dolphins) at all.

    Also, forget about talking about other divisions, that is what General NFL is for, i.e. if you want to say Man the Phins should have signed xyx, that is :cool: , but it you are saying the Lions just signed xyz, it belongs in general NFL.
