I think he went out of his way to be civil. I thought it was great having him here and I hope he continues to drop by from time to time. He understood he was in enemy territory.

I have zero problem with SloMotion. But I wasn't in chat last night. He has been couteous and friendly while he was here. He is. very knowledgeable about the game. He was well spoken. And he was respectful to to our site and to everyone on this site. I too hope he continues to come on here and talk football with us. Hell, we may even convert him to a Saints fan. LOL

I tried to stop by for the chat on gameday, but couldn't find it.

clicked on "chat rooms" and I was the only one in there when the game was starting.

clicked on "Live" and say a bunch of emoticons, and nothing else. Oh well, sounds like it might have been best for me to stay away, anyway. SloMotion and I don't usually see eye to eye on most Lions things.

Let's face, no one ever wants to hear an opposing fan during a game, and when you are just typing, not face to face, a lot of meaning can be lost.
Bottom line, if Colston fumbles inside the 20, the last thing I want to see is YESSS!!!
The guy handled himself well, even when attacked, but...

Well, I've read the posts and can't say as I disagree ... maybe the LiveChat should be a 'WhoDat' only kinda' thing ... in my defense, I don't feel I said anything inappropriate or malicious and that certainly was not my intent. I cheered when my team did well, cursed when they didn't and I cheered the good plays by your team as well. I expected some good natured ribbing from y'all too, and for the most part, it was all good fun. But you're right, inviting an outsider to that inner sanctum might be a little much and could potentially be a powder keg. Lucky for you guys I'm a perfect guest, the 'Beautiful Loser' as my homeboy Bob Seger puts it.

I don't want to overstep my bounds guys ... this board is amazing and the Detroit boards suck, I think I just got too excited over having a place to have real, intelligent football dialogue with other knowledgeable fans.

It's like being at Mardi Gras, eventually you got to get back to where you come from . . . thanks for the vacation guys, I'll just finish out the playoff run if you don't mind . . . my boys here in the "D" been telling me I'm online too much anyway.

go Lions.

But, on second thought, I have an observation. When things weren't going well in the first half, Slo, was understandably happy and expressed himself. Some us felt uncomfortable ( me included ).

So, my suggestion is to ask other Lions fans, who claim to be friendly, to just not join us for the chat on game day. Invite them to post away on the board, but during the game, leave us to celebrate or console ourselves or ***** about the refs ( in the heat of the moment ) on our own.

I think if the game would have gone the other way, having Slo in the chat, could have potentially gotten ugly, and, I believe would have just added to our pain.

Actually, there was one minor thing that I didn't appreciate about Slo. His signature line was Who Dat? Dem Lions. When I asked him to change it -- he just wrote it in French. Maybe he thought I don't read French.
No, I figured you read french and Detroit also has historically French roots as New Orleans, so I figured it was appropriate. My daughter is actually very fluent and gave me that translation, saying it meant something like, "Who is there? Those are the Lions", or something to that affect. In my naivety, I assumed that would be far enough removed from "WhoDat?" to not offend, but still allow me a friendly dig at the Saints. It'll be gone the minute after I submit this post.

No hard feelings. I've never had a thread dedicated to me before either ... you guys really do make me feel special ... seriously. If the Lions hadn't been handed down through generations, well two, in my family and my Pops were still alive, I'd jump ship and become a Saints fan.

go Lions.

Jokeray,

Minimum number of posts required to view gameday chat, so you might not have been able to get it. We do this to prevent driveby trolling.
