Does anyone else have their comments deleted on Pro Football Talk? I called out Florio a while back for that smear article "Colts don't want atheists on their team" after Grigson was asked what kind of men he wanted on his team. His response (paraphrasing here) was something like "high character guys: faith, family, football." It's a line coaches use all the time, my HS coach used it. But Florio blew it up into a big issue. So I called him out on it, as did others. That's when my comments started disappearing. Now I can't even reply with something innocuous without it disappearing. I like reading PFT for NFL news, and sometimes like to comment on stories. I don't try to start fights, but I think Florio has it out for the Colts. Stories like "Colts sell out 85th game" (at the beginning of the season that was a concern but it's not a story anymore, they've sold out for nearly a decade)....or even today, making fun of Grigson's grammar in the "We would try anything to keep Arians" story. I commented to the effect that Arians is a great leader, but his offense nearly got Luck killed this season b/c of the terrible line. And it wasn't coincidence the Colts played their best game when Pagano returned; it allowed Arians to focus soley on the offense. Plus I think Pagano reigned him in a bit, just my opinion. I didn't slander Arians or anything like that. But five minutes later my comment was gone. Oh well, some one over there is butt-hurt when they get called to the carpet.

Yeah I have posts removed all the time on PFT. In fact it's to the point where my posts ALWAYS get deleted. I've called out Florio numerous times in the past ad boom. Censorship. It just adds to the "character" of him and his other "journalists" on that site. Glad to see I'm not the only one. I remember all of the articles you mentioned, too.

I get that it's his site....but he comes off as very childish when he/his staff deletes comments that call him out. I never used profanity, or called him a bad name. My comments were well-thought out (at least in my mind) and reasonable....nothing inflammatory or trolling. But you call him out, rightfully so or not, and you get banned apparently. With all the jabs he takes at teams, he sure can dish it out but can't take it. I think the worst was during the Power Rankings he put out a few weeks back. His comment for the Eagles was that "the players could really use some of those steroids Garrett Reid was taking"....that's just classless.

I don't read Florio if I can avoid it. Keeps me (somewhat) sane. I was convinced that he hates the Colts three years ago.

Yeah I heard that. It's amazing listening to how Saints fans drool and worship Florio when he was one of the first ones to throw them under the bus about the Bounty scandal. I was convinced he hates the Saints, but listening to the fans, you would think Florio shows up to every game. I don't get how they parade around him.

I don't know about you guys, but I'd be very disturbed if my employer made a comment like that.

Wow, I can't believe he would delete yours and leave some of the garbage that others write.  Those commentors are some of the most negative people on the planet.

They always are deleting comments. If you post something totally disagreeing with them and giving a logic point, boom it's gone by the next morning.

    • Actually, if I'm being totally honest here, I'd make NFL referees a permanent 12 month position with great benefits & a nice salary vs the temporary occupation it is now.    My reasoning is simple: If you compensate people well so that they can devote their entire time perfecting & improving their craft, they tend to excel at it & negate their mistakes over time.    Plus, with all the new rules/modifications that get tweaked every yr, it would be a wise move to validate to your referee crews that you value their attention to detail through their pocket book. When you pay people well, they strive to make their bosses look good. 
    • Pre-game & halftime interviews with both head coaches. Yeah I know, they are not an NFL rule per say unless you wanna count them as a CBA mandate to make themselves available to journalists during a game.    I just have never really gotten anything meaningful over these reporter/coach interactions. 90% of the remarks are tired cliches & even if you missed part of the game; nobody ever looks online to say hear what Erin Andrews asked a coach at halftime. 
    • I agree with taking away the taunting rule tool because it's just another version of smack talking live. If you wanna ban the throat slashing gesture, the pretend pistol firing gesture, or the archery firing motion fine; but everything else is fair game.   It's your job to shut your adversary up by scoring TDs or crippling their ground game on defense on 3rd down. And why is the league allowed to promote their shield & jerseys for profit but players can't engage in individual expressions of self promotion either? Seems highly hypocritical to me Mr. Commissioner. Just saying. 
    • I kind of agree with this reverting back I mean. This idea that both sides get an opportunity to touch the ball on offense is overrated to me. Yeah I know, the coin toss by a ref was given excessive weight to a random element of chance, but still. I liked it when the first score in OT even a FG could win the darn game. It was a rush man. The arbitrariness of it all in overtime so many things coaches had no control over: heads or tails on the toss, hearing what player captains declared on the field incorrectly before the toss itself; & life in general isn't fair anyway. Why should both teams get the ball in OT anyway? It gives almost voodoo magic mystique to how the coin lands.    Plus, a lot of players can get injured playing an extra quarter of football. They're tired, exhausted, & say a coach is on the hot seat by their owner & needs to make the playoffs to retain their job...And then wham the team looses their star WR or DB? Crap.    Not only that. Field Goals are crisp, clean, & the guys can get a shower faster & clean up sooner for post game interviews too.    Last but not least, one of the reasons I refuse to watch baseball is that the games take too long to finally conclude & the longer games play out the more it interferes with TV programming & sleeping habits of some fans too. Length isn't always an asset in broadcasting as producers or consumers overall. 
    •   That would be my pick too. I don't think any other team has underachieved as much in the past few years. They have questionmarks at LB, S, OL and HC, along with Rivers late game meltdowns but if Lynn proves out to be at least average coach, I think they are fairly serious threat. That's one stacked division they play in though and rough schedule.
