    Is it too much to ask those enjoying it for a bit of support? Unless, you believe this site not being here does not matter. Try finding another.
    love this site and the contributions that make this place what it is!!

    I missed that the first time I read that, but I just caught it. I wasn't old enough to witness that, but I've heard about it a bunch of times.

    I can't agree with that. Voting for president should be mandatory or severely encouraged, IMO. On message boards there's too much of a clique mentality, and discouragement of contrary opinions. For example, on a Canes board the other day I responded to a lengthy attack on the USC campus and surrounding area by detailing what it's actually like as a student there. Almost immediately the thread was bombarded with posters taunting me by saying they left negative reputation. Well bully for them. I don't even know what that means, other than apparently I wasn't supposed to like it. Meanwhile, if I cared what people thought then around here I wouldn't say I like the Jets and I hated the Marino era. I do like the Jets and I did hate the Marino era.

    I'm a VP member here but almost never post there, or even venture into the forum. That might be a poor decision but it was spurred by my early visits to the place, after I apparently was voted in. One poster after another in there was having a jolly time deriding this forum, and specific members. The popular term for this forum was, "The Zoo," as in...I just visited The Zoo and now I need to get back here and take a needed bath. That type of snobby thing. To be fair, I don't know if that attitude persists but it was enough to turn me off immediately. It reminded me of Las Vegas sportsbooks when a big bettor is approached by an everyday guy, asking for a bit of advice, and the whale acts as if he's been wronged if they approach within 10 feet of him. I always have more fun nearby the $5 parlay crowd and that holds true here.

    I expected to participate in the voting process here for the first time this year but decided against it. The draft forum, for example, was simply too tough to call. Other forums I had no idea. Some categories it appeared were almost written for certain posters to win, while other logical categories were absent.

    Voting at this time of the year probably lends itself to lower numbers. Hold it in the heart of the season and I'm sure the participation would be markedly improved.

    Bro so your statement lumps today's VIP with the VIP of the old. That is not quite fair for those that have made VIP what is today with that statement. I just wonder why make that statement when you don't even go in there now? Your terminology that your refer as "The Zoo" is not and will not be used as a name of this forum. Please in the future visit the forum before making statements like this. We have worked too hard to have this happen Basically with this post you killed what ever support we have built up for the site with the new VIP. Your post is very misinforming.

    I would greatly appreciate it if members truly understood what VIP is about rather than just assuming. It is these members, the great donators, and Matt the owner that help keep this site open for all to enjoy. What would you do and where would go if the site bleed a loss so bad that it had to close up for good? Please give this some thought, rather than just assuming this site will be open no matter what. Yes the staff is all volunteer and we receive no payment for our time.

    Thanks,

    John

    Maybe the award season should align to the football season. I'd assume viewership is down significantly versus September.
