Idea/Challenge for B&G?

I have an idea that might be interesting.

And it goes like this ...

I would like to propose a debate challenge. Four members of B&G will be involved.

Who you ask?

1. GumboBC
2. JKool
3. saintwhodi
4. WhoDat

There will be 2 teams. It will be myself and JKool against WhoDat and saintwhodi. That is if everyone agrees? There will be one debate per week.

All four of us will pick one topic to debate per week. The debate will be kept "clean". I mean no insults, jabs, and nothing else will be posted that doesn't pertain to the subject at hand.

Anything can be used in the debate. Stats, your opinions, articles from the media, etc., ect,....

No one can post in the thread except the parties involved. Once we finish the debate other members will vote on which team made the most and best points overall.

This might be a good idea and maybe not. And of course we will have to get approval from Halo and JoeSam.

The rules can be adjusted to make the debate as fair as possible. So any ideas are welcomed?

What do you think WhoDat, saintwhodi, and JKool.

Always up for a good debate, but the topics shouldn\'t be arguments we have previously had, and hopefully they won\'t be deleted like some I had today. As a matter of fact, you may wanna choose someone besides me cause I think I am gonna bow out for a while. I don\'t understand how your posts can be deleted without breaking any rules.

Hey man ... I really hope you will take part in this. I saw your post got edited in the other thread.

But, look ... I know how you feel. More than anyone else I have been on the receiving end of Joe\'s edits. Of course, I always thought I was right and he was wrong. Imagine that? LOL.

But, the truth is that Joe is trying to accomplish something here at B&G. He\'s trying to keep things to where there are no insults, jabs, or other remarks which may keep other potential members from posting.

Does Joe always edit all posts that need to be? No, I\'m sure some go unnoticed. But, JoeSam is a good guy and he\'s more fair than any other moderator that I\'ve ever encountered. And that goes for ANY Saints\' message board I\'ve ever been on.

Don\'t take it persoanally ... I can guarantee you that it\'s not personal with JoeSam. He\'s just trying to do his job and sometimes it might not seem fair.

Anyway, I hope you\'ll reconsider. I really enjoy your posts as much as anyone on here.

I think it would be an interesting idea, Billy. It would depend on the rules, but I think a rule governed debate among the four of us could be very interesting.

Of course, I agree with LB on this one - we already do it.

My main reason for interest would be to cover a range of different topics. I also think that the group you picked would provide a range of opinions.

I guess, I\'d be in, but as I said, it would depend on the conditions.

Your absolutley right...

By all means....debate away...

I deleted that last post...so it wouldn\'t sour anything...

I\'m not sure if it\'s a good idea...I feel like we are all kinda friends(who fight all the time)...and a structured debate, with rules and predetermined topics just sounds like sabatoge to me..and it would almost certainly make rifts between some of you guys...and alienate new members...


But..hey..what do I know...


Hasn\'t Billy tried this Idea before?...as I remember..it never even got off the ground before it was getting ugly...

I would question how you came up with your group of people who are \"allowed\" to participate. Are these the people that you deem \"worthy?\" I suppose your ego is so huge that you believe that the rest of us would get entertainment by being allowed to read what the \"Fab 4\" have to say. You need to check that ego at the door.

You guys never cease to amaze me. If you want to participate in the debate, why not just come out and say it, instead of saying something like this? This is why I delete so many posts or edit same. You guys can\'t say anything without attacking someone. What a shame!
