Liked SloMotion, but....

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; I really liked SloMotion, even though he is a Lions fan ( and made no bones about it ). In the chat today, I invited him back. But, on second thought, I have an observation. When things weren't going well ...

I really liked SloMotion, even though he is a Lions fan ( and made no bones about it ). In the chat today, I invited him back.

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.

well, I see your point. However, if we are going to ask/welcome/invite; other fans to our site. Do we need to take their "Fan Cards" away? I understand we have had some butholes on here from other sites but I don't can if a guy/gal shows their pride in their team. As long as they keep it to within tolleration of the group.

I also see your point about the invite to the chat room. Heat of the moment can get ugly with just us in their.

On the whole, I like when we get good fans to come here. All that tells me is when they "Google" Saint Fans/Forum...... BlackandGold.com is the one they choose!

Not talking about taking their fan cards away. If they have identified as friendlies, I'm just talking about asking them to not join in on the game day chat. Emotions run high on game day. And why aren't they on a game day chat with their own team/ fans?

Something just doesn't feel right about it to me.

Guys/Gals, Slomotion was awesome all week. He wanted to participate in Live chat and I didn't stop him.

He actually behaved himself, but LIVE is for US Saints fans and I have to rethink/make some new rules on how that works. He didn't really do anything offensive but let's face it, when we fall behind, the last thing Saints fans want to hear are other fans saying ANYTHING.

It's not slomotions fault. He was one of the most decent visitor members we've seen in a long time.

You guys are exactly right. even though it was 14-10 at half the the saints were getting the ball to start the second half and i also knew we would take the lead, noone wants to hear anything SILLY.
This is the playoffs, one and done, MY KIDS BETTER NOT LAUGH when the SAINTS are down. STICK TO YOUR OWN FORUM ON GAME DAY!!!!

I see what WhoDatCat is saying. Posting is ok. Chatting during game is not comfortable and those in chat had to restrict themselves. They could not freely talk about the game or the DetLions or even the Saints. They went out of their way to be civil in chat and mindful of SloMo. Watch their language and words. Show up that Southern Hospitality.
Yes, I agree with the rest that SloMo's postings were fine. Mild.
Nothing against SloMo. His postings were ok.
He was nice.

I invited him to our forum as well, and I invited him to come back during the rest of the season.

He sent me a nice private message as well today.

I didn't feel uncomfortable with him in the chat room

I cant think of another team's fan site I would go on and invite someone to ours, but if any show up and behave, they can stay

Totally agree, Halo, he was really a nice guy. I'm just talking about saving ourselves some pain. And maybe, NOT having the temptation to lash out at a nice guy who was decent enough to hang out with us, while his team was getting beat.

I really think he showed us how it's done. I could never have behaved like him on a Falcons board or particularly a game day chat.

Stand up guy, who also apparently speaks some French.
