    Forum Etiquette

    Look, we want a cool place to hang and so do you. With that mutual goal in mind, let's push on.

    Posting an article

    Add the link or we might delete it for fun. Vice Versa dont bother posting the link without copying and pasting the article. That will see the link deleted.

    Starting a thread

    Take a little time and see if something similar is already posted, and does the topic deserve its own thread? All new threads will be auto-posted via our twitter and facebook accounts, so please think before posting! If you're not sure, ask.

    Post Length and Spamming

    At least a sentence. No prizes for highest post count. If you don’t think you have anything to add, don’t post for the sake of it.

    Facebook and Twitter Followers

    This is not the same as a social media page for trash talk and throw away comments. What's okay on FB and Twitter may not be appropriate here.

    Punctuation and Grammar

    We don’t expect everyone to be geniuses, but please make an effort. We would also request that you make a half decent attempt to post your messages in English and not street speak, sms or any other lazy illiterate form of communication.

    Want an argument?

    Argue the points. Feel free to attack the post but dont attack the poster. We want people to enjoy robust discussion, not endure bullying.

    ad hominem
    /ad ˈhɒmɪnɛm/

    adverb & adjective
    1. (of an argument or reaction) directed against a person rather than the position they are maintaining.
    "an ad hominem response"

    Illegal shit

    Before you do something dumb that could get the forum and its owners in trouble, think.

    You cannot, under any circumstances, post anything potentially slanderous. Doing so can have legal implications. That includes naming names when players are suspected of match fixing, doping, etc. Feel free to post articles or comment after charges or convictions are made but do not go speculating any possible offenders.

    You cannot post serious and/or specific things about players personal lives.

    And you absolutely cannot post anything implying law breaking. This includes posting torrents, streams or links to illegal streaming sites.

    In general, just keep it all footy related.

    Hate Speech

    Racism, homophobia, sexism or oppressive comments of any sort will not be tolerated in this forum.


    If we didn't give you permission, don't do it. To get permission simply PM an admin.

    Post deleted or moved?

    There will be an explanation.

    If you think any posts are inappropriate feel free to press the inappropriate button. Same goes for the off topic button. These are not to be used as a dislike button. You can also report posts which will bring them to admins attention faster for more serious breaches.

    Baggage from a former home?

    Please leave it at the door or you will be shown it.

    General warning

    We loathe obvious retardation. Fanbois may be summarily dismissed. People who refuse to cooperate in regards to these basic rules may find their accounts limited, unable to post, or totally banned from the site.

    Make our life easy by posting within these guidelines and not requiring any moderation to your posts. The number of 'red' in your post bar underneath your avatar should give you a general idea of how compliant you are in regards to the rules.

    Last but not least. Have fun! We’re all here for the same reason. If you have a question or problem, please ask!

    For the upteenth time I must remind people NOT to post torrents, streams or links to illegal streaming sites. Whether its NRL matches or boxing bouts etc. STOP! Basically if you are not paying for games, fights, subscriptions or apps you can almost certainly guarantee its illegal.

    Take this as your final warning and do not be surprised if you get banned from posting for 7 days. There has been a lot of it recently. Enough is enough. This forum can get into some serious trouble over it. Easier to ban one person than lose the whole forum.

    Any issues, doubts or concerns feel free to PM an admin. We are here to help...
