      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

    Don't worry, they still have the Drews. You'll see, one of them will take them to the promise land. I think I just threw up.

    With the 2010 senior QBs, I agree.... But with a different coaching staff and the embarassment of 0-16, I see more like 5-7 wins next year...lol That may be a bit optimistic but, hell, who knows? If the Lions have taught us anything it's that you simply CANNOT predict what they'll do or how they'll perform. That includes drafts. I'll just watch with amusement to see if they blow another one. With their awful track record, they'll probably win just enough games to prevent them from being in a position to take one of the 2010 QB's. "I'm a Lions fan and I hate myself"

    And for every Matt Ryan or Flacco, there are ten Vince Youngs, Matt Leinarts, Joey Harringtons, Ryan Leifs, and a lot more. Tom Brady was a late round pick. None of the highly touted qbs available this year have the same "cant miss" tag as Ryan did. Stafford and Sanchez both have question marks I would agree with Chinabald, the Lions have too many holes on defense and O line that need to be filled first. What good is a franchise quarterback if you can't protect him or let him on the field? I think you're giving them too much credit. Can you believe, when they were 0-9 they were still talking about how they weren't eliminated from playoff contention yet? Many of the players were speaking as if they were a legitimate team with bona fide NFL players. They still seem to think they're a player or two from contending. I'm with you, I hope they take care of the lines before they go for skilled positions. If not, their new QB should take Cipher's advice to Neo "when you see an agent....run, run your ass off".

    I hope they draft defense in the first round, Josh Freeman in the second and defense the rest of the way I wish much the same thing, but I wish a lot of things. I'm just another disappointed Lions watcher(can't call myself a fan right now) whose seen great opportunities squandered again and again. Bobby Layne's probably laughing right now because his curse has outlived even his expectations.

    I would be surprised if they didn't go for Stafford. The Lions seem to have a problem paying number 1 pick money to a lineman. Yes, they've screwed the pooch on the last however many first round picks(save Calvin) but that's not a reason to NOT pick a QB. Is he the next Bobby Layne? Doubtful. But, Culpepper is a mystery and I don't think Stanton is the answer. He can't seem to stay healthy. My only hope is, if they choose to take Stafford or any other QB, that they go line and D with the remainder of their higher picks. That said, if Backus really is moving inside to guard, they may still think line. I just don't think so.

    Heeling is a very good way to restablish control over pulling tendencies re-emerging. I agree. However, I have three and it takes individual time with all three. When they're together, forget it. They're family pets, not working dogs. They do the basics, but only really respond to my voice when they're excited. And, of course, with three kids and a wife that feeds them from the table and then gets mad if they beg, consistency is an issue. So, we use the leader. I have never walked more than one dog at a time (or owned more than one at a time) so I'll have to defer. And you are spot on, consistency is 90% of the success formula. The other 10% is avoiding thinking about them like they're people. I am impressed with the design and theory behind the product with the clip at the front. The secret is to break their focus from whatever is motivating the pulling and return it to you. That lead seems very likely to do just that and in a very humane manner. If I ever get another dog I'll likely try that lead & harness combo. I've always used a braided looped collar with much success. Sadly after we lost our last dog we realized we are coming up on travel time with retirement looming and it doesn't seem fair to have a dog only to put her up in kennels or farm her out for prolonged periods of time so we decided to not get another dog. Just didn't seem kind or responsible. I sure miss having one though.....a lot. Three dogs and three kids......................you have my admiration (or sympathies I'm not sure which is most appropriate!! ) Well, the dogs are all males(or used to be) and, if too much estrogen starts to flow, I can always go work on the boat(with the dogs).

    Or dogs dressed as Petey... If that dog is so harmless why is he wearing a prong collar? Because he had a tendency to pull while being walked, so 2 months of walks with the training collar cured that. He now wears a regular collar, and no longer pulls like he used to. Interesting how you assume the presence of a pronged training collar equates to a dog not being harmless..... Actually, I equate the prong collar to an owner who doesn't have control of his dog. And that's not a good thing. Try this next time: http://www.buygentleleader.com/View.aspx?p...der/description My 90lb Lab and 105lb Shepherd both have gentle leaders. Now my 45lb daughter can walk them both. I'm going to give that a try if he starts pulling again. Do you find your dogs can be walked with regular collars after time on the gentle leafer, or, do you keep them on the gentle leader? I keep the gentle leader. Only because the're used to it by now. They see me take it out and they know it's time for a walk.

    Detroit sports fans might be interested, but not terribly surprised, to find out that the odds of the Lions winning the 2010 NFL championship are set at 150-1. That’s good for dead last, or 32nd out of as many NFL teams. Here are the odds: New England Patriots 6-1 Pittsburgh Steelers 7-1 New York Giants 8-1 Indianapolis Colts 8-1 Dallas Cowboys 9-1 Baltimore Ravens 11-1 Carolina Panthers 12-1 Philadelphia Eagles 12-1 Tennessee Titans 12-1 San Diego Chargers 14-1 Arizona Cardinals 15-1 Atlanta Falcons 16-1 New Orleans Saints 18-1 Green Bay Packers 20-1 Minnesota Vikings 22-1 Miami Dolphins 25-1 Washington Redskins 25-1 New York Jets 28-1 Chicago Bears 28-1 Jacksonville Jaguars 30-1 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 35-1 Denver Broncos 35-1 Houston Texans 40-1 San Francisco 49ers 40-1 Buffalo Bills 50-1 Seattle Seahawks 60-1 Cleveland Browns 60-1 Cincinnati Bengals 75-1 St. Louis Rams 100-1 Kansas City Chiefs 100-1 Oakland Raiders 100-1 Detroit Lions 150-1 There we go.
