    So just about every off-season, it seems, around the April to May timeframe someone posts a thread. The topic of that thread is some variation on how happy they are that the off season has been **Insert the banned Q word here**.

    This act of hubris is quickly seen by the Fates who then invariably send wave upon wave of negative national headlines for the Gators.

    So this year can we all agree:
    If, when the time comes, you happen to be somewhat pleased with the progress of the offseason will you please, please treat it like that thing in baseball when the pitcher is doing really well?

    Sounds like a plan. But there are always going to be some silly posters that

    1. dont see this thread.
    2. dont care and just want to increase their post count.
    3. want to be the first to 'report' anything whether its fake or real.

    But you got my vote.

    Can we just change the title of the thread to " This Off-season had been full of problems" and bump it 2 times everyday?

    I get on this forum at least every other day..i am dedicated to bump it then for the good of The Gators.

    Or a mod could be nice enough to pin it at the top.

    Or,....

    Perhaps we should start a pool, picking those "certain posters" who would be the first to post some unsubstantiated negative gossip.....AKA "garbage".??

    4. Ass clowns from our rivals trying to tempt fate on our team by posting those kind of threads

    Gotta insert......

    5; Certain "Ass clowns" from here picking up on that, and running with it.....hence, my reasoning for the pool. :)

    I had to chuckle at the post count I am probably one of the few that has reached 500 posts at least 3 times. Every time I take a break due to an extended hospital stay, the death of a close loved one or they run out of grands biscuits at our only grocery store and log back in I am relegated to damn near newbie status. Guess they call it the purge or something. I take my 500 status seriously and I'm shooting for 5 times to 500 so no post padding from me. Don't want to go to far over the limit.;)

    We're all getting stuck on lower Likes, trophy points and thread posts... But if you post often you can mitigate that by posting your count before they cull the threads.

    Hey, hey, hey.....I'm not an ambulance chaser. If I had the power, I'd make those threads disappear:) Off season is easy to ignore those threads...on season, different story.

    Some of you are missing the point. He isnt saying don't post negative stuff. He is saying don't post that magical jinx thread that seems to pop up every year when no bad stuff has happened. That Q word he mentions rhymes with "Riot".
    As a mod, I vow to lock it down if it shows up.
