This here is exactly why the huddle has changed.
I was a member back in 1999 (different username) when they had one forum. Anything went but it was mostly football and the discussion involved was great. I remember going back and forth with coaches and former players about the best way to defend the wing-t or spread from the 50 or 4-3. It was great.
As time went on and the popularity grew it became every kid, dad, mom, obnoxious uncle, drumming up ink for their loved one. The 'discussions' soon ended and it quickly became hijacked threads.
Folks got sick of it which is sad because guys like scipio and YTOWN amongst many others really brought some great insight (and stories - I'll never forget the YTOWN Mike Diniro[spl?] story). On top of all else, even those who used screenames never hid from who they really were. Today there is WAY too many posters hiding behind screenames so they can dog people.
