They are a little harsh, but the main idea is still clear. Posting thousands of threads about every tidbit you can think of clutters up meaningless(Not that ALL of yours are meaningless) threads in with the quality threads often throws them off the front page(Which is what most people look at then go away).

You are not the only one to receive this treatment. The offseason that Manning had his surgeries during Andy did the same thing and if I remember correctly got it worse. This is probably the nicest anybody is going to put it so please just calm it down a little bit. I have nothing against you or you posting but it has to be cut down.

It's a healthy thought sure. But as for thread-worthy I don't. They make blogs for this website. It'd probably be best suited as a blog post rather than a new thread. Just a helpful suggestion man I enjoy you posting, just not so much all the threads.

1) It isn't a topic worthy of discussion

2) Hasn't Luck already had his "coming out party"

For my own part I'm only poking a little fun and if I do cause any offense people can call me on it and I will apologise, I appreciate that my "humor" might not be to everyone's taste.

Without wanting to be grammar and spelling police :mod: , was this meant to be ironic? Genuine question.

Why not? This topic is as good as any. It's a legitimate suggestion. Players do like to show their stuff to their home town friends and family. They talk about it all the time.

This is the perfect game to have a coming out party

Overall, I doubt Luck will notice any difference or even be thinking about where he is playing after he gets on the field if he even is before he gets on it. I think he may notice beforehand if he has a lot of family/friends in attendance, but it will only be on his mind for a short period of time when the game begins. I doubt it will make any difference.

And as someone else already said, Luck has already had his "coming out party."

If the game was played in Germany and Luck's preschool teacher was attending then I think it would definitely be a HUGE factor.

Actually the Titans and Mike Munchak games would have as much importance since His Dad was a teammate of MM and the franchise they played for is the Titans and not the Texans

but

It probably won't matter

I would like to see Luck play well in his hometown, but I don't think it will matter.

The Texan's defense isn't going to be like," Hey Luck is coming home, let's lay down so the kid will have a good game"

Although I don't see why people are bashing you Stephen, I think it is actually an interesting aspect. I remember Addai had a game against Houston and he played great coming back home.

Maybe the next time they play in Jacksonville, Luck will kill it since there is a Lego based on him and there's a Lego factory in Florida.

Many times, instead of making a new topic, I just post what's on my mind on a related topic. Sometimes it's not even related and completely random ;)

Actually no, that particular passing play was a home game against the 49ers.

vick ballard will throw a td to andrew luck this sunday

I don't know why BA hasn't thrown in some stuff like that. You are luck has mad skills one hand catching balls down the sideline. He would probably even run over a couple cb's after the catch!

From a radio interview of Oliver Luck it sounded like Andrew played football in middle school and high school while living in Houston.

Addai used to play well vs the Texans, he was from Texas. So why not Luck?

To me, if you have to cash in on any doubt that has crept into the Texans' psyche, this is the killer punch game to do it.

"This topic is as good as any". Please. I know my comment seemed very harsh now that I am reading it again, but he doesn't need to create a thread for every little though that comes into his head. I know you mean well, but you're telling me his topics are as good as Andy's write-ups? Or Warhorse's "10 things I think I think" and recent "Standing up and Believing" topics? I know he has the right to post whatever he wants. And I have the right to speak my opinion, which is every thought that pops into his head is not worthy of a thread.

BTW can I just ask what a "coming out party" is anyway? Just saying it means something very different over here!

You have every right to decide what you think is worthy of a thread - for yourself. I'm not comparing his topics to anyone's. And I'm certainly not rating them, so don't try to make this about me.

I happen to think it's a legitimate comment. Apparently you don't. It's as simple as that, right? Peace.

    • I know ;) my point was that they did try it and decided against it for the time being. 
    • No worries. I have lots of brain farts myself, gives a whole new meaning to being filled with gas hahaha
    • In terms of calculating ratings, I've always wondered how viewership is tabulated in an era when fans can record games to watch later at their leisure as opposed to the designated time slot on a specific network.    We live in an on demand era now where networks don't get to call the shots anymore meaning consumers can now control when programming is watched & consumed. I think about this a lot. When there was only NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, & the broadcast day ended at midnight literally vs now with cable, satellite, streaming services, & entertainment options tailored to the specific person etc. etc.    Heck, I even remember when TV programming directors tried to sue VCR companies for copyright infringement just because new technology allowed customers to record & play back programming on the original antenna based networks growing up.    A pet peeve of mine is laptops & cell phones that allow programming on the go at airports, in cars, & on trains because I miss how important TV & radio used to be as a family event & bonding experience, which doesn't exist anymore--the mystique & magic of TV & radio as a communal event. I'm a historian/archivist by profession so I always notice generational changes over time. I grew up with a radio straight out of FDR's "Fireside Chats" too until a tornado demolished it. I miss that radio too. 
    • Beautifully stated CC1. Not that this situation applies to every NFL player of course, but there is something to be said for athletic individuals pampered a significant portion of their lives due to their speed, strength, & agility. I agree.    Yes, I know. There are gritty, humble, undrafted success stories out there too. 
    • According to a Colts.com article, Doyle is wildly popular in the locker room because of his great attitude and how he goes about his business.  Barring injury, he should be a big weapon for us.  Monachino said having Robinson back opens up our defensive playbook.  Bortles is still young, so I'm hoping we can frustrate him with our secondary, while our linebackers stop the run.  We should see Dline get pressure with Anderson back.

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
