It's quality, not quantity.

That goes without saying...the one reason I think this is the best site out there for advice is because of the postings. My reason for this post was just out of curiousity... and hatred for being called a cheerleader! :-t

I agree that it doesn't really matter; I am very new here (actually first started visiting the baseball site by accident) and was ecstatic that there was one for football (I am a former Fanball forum guy). That classification is more of an indication of your time spent here, not necessarily your expertise (although they do seem to go hand in hand based on the postings from the long-timers here). ;-D

Looking forward to being an active part of the group; hope my advice helps others.


I would never take advice from a guy with the word "soccer" in his name.



I wouldnt take the advice of a guy who cant spell coffee.

Not a very kind welcome to the Cafe :-t

As with the quality vs. quantity arguement, it's the advice given that is important, not the username ;-D

And to think I was going to give you some props, KoffeeBoy for your excel spreadsheet work on your QB rankings.

I did consider changing my username (I know how you former football players feel superior to us former soccer vets)... but now I won't just as a matter of principle. ;-)

And why "KoffeeBOY"; why not step up to the plate and call yourself KoffeeMAN? You could then be part of a new dynamic duo...KoffeeMan and LatteBoy.

Just playin' with ya and having a good time...no harm intended!

I know it is off topic.... but I used to own a couple of coffee shops in Sacramento, CA.

I became the 'coffeeboy' to all of my customers... because I was 18 at the time. No one ever took the time to learn my real name, so the nickname stuck. In signing up for something online... someone already used the name 'coffeeboy', so I used 'koffeeboy'... and have used it ever since.

And yes soccer and everything thereby affiliated sucks.

Still not feeling much love here...

BTW -- my former nickname was "SoccerBoy" given to me by a former boss because of my athletic history, and his hatred of the sport also (he also was very ignorant ;-)) I still owe him an asskicking.

And with this post (#25), I should now officially be a "WaterBoy" (or something other than "CheerLeader").

Thanks for helping me get there guys. ;-D

When you get a very large amount of posts, you can call people "n00bs" or "newbs" and tell them to make you a "sammich." When you have lots of posts, you can belittle people in various ways.

My favorite is the team rating insults. Ask if they drafted their team or if they let an inbred monkey smash the keyboard. If someone questions you, say that you have an Excel spreadsheet that proves you correct ("My Excel spreadsheet says that Kerry Collins will throw 60TDs this year...you are not as smart as Excel."

I hope you can use these tips!


I started cracking up by the word "sammich" and it got funnier after.
