What is NGS about?
« on: August 08, 2014, 10:21:08 PM »
I don't know why I'm starting this thread.

I want to say thanks to our members but not sure where I should begin.

But I wanted to hear from you and what NGS is all about.

NGS is about community through sports and branching out to every topic under the sun.
If I could start my life all over again, I would be a professional football player, and you damn well better believe I would be a Pittsburgh Steeler.

It's about simple folks having a place that they can call home.

I've been told you guys never talk about sports.

We talk about sports all the time, it's just not relegated to any specific forum.
For instance, the AFR forum is not a sports forum, but some sports discussions have certainly been known to happen there.
Conversely, there are forums/threads geared toward specific sports, but especially in the off-season, anything and everything is discussed.
We just aren't adamant about no off-topic discussions on sports thread, and no sports discussions on off-topic threads.

In my mind the main concern, for lack of a better word, is making sure the various personalities who frequent this board all have a place to go where they're comfortable.  Thus, you'll find certain forums are rather polite, and people are quite respectful of each other, and other forums where, well, people are neither polite nor particularly respectful, although most of that is primarily people with twisted senses of humor who just like to laugh.

Pure genius.

You should trademark these ideas before other forums catch on.

YOU CALLIN ME A SIMPLETON?

s'ok.

This site is sports based, but also an open forum for all with their own separate ideals, beliefs, and asshattery to be aired freely others to critique or agree with.

Also a place to poke fun at Florida.

It's entirely possible we could be impolite about it if you do though...
