im not sure whats going on, but im pretty sure none of us are broncos fans. i havent seen the post, but im sure there was a perfectly good reason for it to be removed. by jumping to off-based conclusions ur being a whole lot more unfair then ur accusing us of being.
besides u could just ask what happened instead of flippin out. u dont wanna start a fight with the mods.
oh and btw, the rest of u guys are just as stupid for beliveing him. good grief. this is a very "uncool and pityful" thread.

You're sadly mistaken if you think that.
And for those of you who jumped on the bandwagon, when was the last time you ever saw a post deleted in the Cafe because it wasn't inflammatory or attacking?
I thought so.
More often than not threads are locked because of moronic BS. I suspect that if yours was not inflammatory or attacking, it should have been locked.
Maybe it was accidental? Why don't you freaking ASK first instead of jumping out of the frying pan (and your skull) and into the fire?
some peoples children.
You have shamed me into silence...well, maybe just a little silence!
I merely reacted to quite an interesting post and what was being said. A poor reaction? It would appear so. I am a new poster here and if you and your 1,887 posts say there is no basis to this silliness then me and my paltry 35 posts will believe you and move on my merry way!
Thanks for your insights and for saying them without being a jerk about it. Much appreciated.
Wow, I wonder where anyone would get the idea that you were badmouthing anyone.
I think that the mods here do a pretty damn fine job of keeping this place clean. There's a certain amount of discretion that they must use to keep the forum at a certain level. As a moderator, you are certainly not going to let anything manifest itself into a war of flames, and to me it sounds like you were, and still are, trying to head down that path.
Its obvious what happened folks! Just thought you would want to know what type of forum your on. I've never seen this happen at ESPN, Sportingnews, or Fantasy Sharks forums.
If it's really that much of a problem for you, why don't you just go away and visit those other places where you don't seem to have a problem? I really don't understand folks that go into forums, raise hell and then stomp their feet when they get called on it.
I like simple pleasures, like butter in my ass, lollipops in my mouth. That's just me.
In defense of the Mod squad I haven't noticed any of them being Bronco fans. They may have questionable tastes in their fav teams but all in all seem to be able to take the slings and arrows that come with losing. They also seem to do a great job tending their posts here. I didn't get to read every reply to the post in question, but if the mods thought it needed deep sixed, I'm at peace with that. Remember you may have conducted yourself appropriately but others may have gone too far. Now stop your whining and lets get on with our lack of lives!
I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

1) The posts sole intent was to rile up Bronco fans and start a flame war.
2) This current post is whinier than any Denver fan I've seen on the forum. FFGOD is clearly the whiner here.
3) It isn't just Denver fans who act like this. Have you ever talked to a Packer fan?
4) The mods here are actually pretty decent. As an experienced evaluater of moderators and their behaviors, I will attest that cafe mods generally have done a fine job. Not everyone is going to be completely happy with their jobs. Some will feel even the most offensive comments should stay due to free speech, others would prefer any post using a 4-letter word stronger than 'darn' should be deleted.
Occasionally, some loser that can't handle the fact that his post got deleted comes in and cries about it, and blames the mods for singling his post out and accuses them all of being Denver fans. These losers are so mad at the world and everyone in it for their own life failures that they go into internet forums and try to start flame wars with other users in a desperate cry for attention. When their mindless, inflammatory post gets deleted they get even madder and start the equivalent of a temper tantrum in the forum.
FFGOD, I think you need a TIME OUT, and then a nap, because you are getting a little cranky, junior.
