**PLEASE READ before starting an injury topic

Postby Madison » Sat Nov 25, 2006 12:51 am

Rules first:

#1 - No joking about injuries! We take this very seriously, so please, only report true injuries. Posting "fake" injury news will not be tolerated.

#2 - Please try to limit each player to just one thread. There's really no need for 5 threads about Larry Johnson's ankle (for example).

Now a few guidelines:

This is not the "Start/Sit" forum, it is not the "Waivers" forum, and it's not the "Venting" forum.

If you're in here to discuss an injury, find out how serious it is, how long the player will be out, when to expect a return, or anything having to do with news on the player and/or the injury, congratulations, you're in the right place. ;-D

If you want to complain about the injury, do it in the Venting forum.

If you want to know who to pick up to replace an injured player, do it in the Waivers/Free Agent forum.

If you have a player who's not listed in the box score, or isn't getting touches, your best bet to find out his status is to ask in the Game Commentary forum where there is a thread about the game. Best way to get the answer to that question is to ask someone who's actually watching the game ;-) .

If you're unsure as to if you should start or sit someone who's either got an injury, or coming back from injury, that goes in the Start/Sit forum.

A helpful tip to everyone who wants this forum to stay clutter free is to simply ignore any and all posts that are off topic. Or if you just have to respond, you can provide a link to this post to anyone who doesn't seem to understand the purpose of this forum, which is why I've included links to the proper forums. ;-)

With everyone's cooperation, everyone will be able to get Player Injury Information and Updates without having to sift through or scroll past clutter in the wrong place. Thanks! ;-D

Really seems to be lot of needless game commentary in here this year for some reason.

FYI:

"Is he playing?" or "Is he hurt?" threads are not allowed in this forum. Just because your favorite WR / TE / RB hasn't received any catches or touches, does not mean that he is possibly injured and that a thread should be started for him. Any such questions belong in the Game Commentary threads for those games, and any threads created without confirmed injury information will be merged into their respective game commentary threads or locked.

POST CONFIRMED INJURIES/UPDATES ONLY!!!
