Guys, first let me tell you we really appreciate the interaction and posts here on The Blue Board, but I run things a little differently around here. I have many responsibilities at 247Sports, things that require time and attention, to where I can't constantly babysit, so I rely on our veteran moderators, the guys that have been here from the start, to back me up.
I don't question them, I rarely override them (though I have at times with some of you who have been banned) and I am certainly not interested in having the board divided into two factions that support different moderators. That's going to lead to disaster and we aren't going to have that.
The other guys were mods first. DeltaDawg was last in the door, so he had to go. It's as simple as that. I announced it on the board so some of you would quit cyber-rioting about it and then that post turned into one of the worst threads in the history of our network. Moderators are volunteers. They are not employees of 247Sports at all, so I am not sure what the outrage was. This wasn't The Apprentice where I publicly fired the guy. Regardless some of you reacted like spoiled children on both sides. Grow up. On one end you had people pointing fingers and laughing like Def Comedy Jam and on the other you had people screaming about "business", which is a common approach when people don't get their way on message boards.
We are all done with both sides of that in the name of customer service.
Customer service is taking care of our guys that visit our site and giving them a pleasant experience. The average poster or reader is not interested in the drama. They are here to have fun, talk it up with you guys, maybe talk a little smack about football (which is fine), discuss off-topic issues, etc. They don't want this 12-year old girl drama on the board. We aren't going to have it. I am not going to deal with it. We will just blacklist and you will be free to read, but not post.
This is how we are going to run this board from now on. For those that preferred DeltaDawg82 as a moderator, I am sorry, but we tried it, it didn't work and we are moving on.
Outside of this thread, there will be no more discussion or debate on this topic. If you start a thread about it, you risk being banned from the site.
Thanks for your cooperation.

Dang I went to the grocery and missed the fireworks didnt I?
You don't get fired from a volunteer position, do you?
Lets just say he didn't take it very well and decided to get on Twitter and say some things that were not appreciated.
You can't do that. You guys are our customers for sure, but the restaurant owner isn't going to let you come in, sit down, spill your beer and pasta all over the place, yell and scream and curse you out. You'd go to jail real quick or you'd go to jail if you ever came back in there.
So we aren't operating under the "we are human pinatas" approach here and I am not sure why any of you thought it would be that way.
The very fact you had to say all that is embarrassing. People take the Internet way too serious.
Y'all Internet people would be like the dudes on the real world fighting and shat and if I was casted I'd be the drunk dude in the corner laughing like i don't giva fudge
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
Very nice restraint Billy
It's all good. My bad if my answer came across at direct. Wasn't intended that way. Didn't mind the question.
that is awesome
JC in 2016. Let the campaign begin
So will there be a new mod replacement or what?
lmao at the saga this turned into and mega hella lolz at all the dudes who blamed JC and the staff here
Will somebody please find these tweets by Delta and did he really get banned for 2 years ?
Best day on the internet evar!!!!
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
No Harry. You would be a terrible mod
He might have my vote
If searched the twitter world. cant find them.
Exactly right, Im still laughing at Jeff and them trying to do something about it
Yeah but I don't care what JC does, this is his world
I only made fun of Delta cause I hated him and I troll people hard, its what I do
This will go down as one of the best trolls ever by many of us
I hold myself, Aussie and Mountie as the main people who made this happen with the help of others here and there
But we are the 3 who have been asking for this for a long time, you don't make idiots moderators... if you do, you're gonna have a bad time
Taking credit haha
God damn right, I ran this whole campaign son
Don't be jelly of my political skills
Nobody should blame JC for what happened. He has so much on his plate each day, its nearly impossible for him to have known what kind of poster delta was. We gave it a run, and it didn't work. That's that. It wasn't you, me, and Aussie. Did you see that thread? And threads before that one? delta made himself a brand new rule book. One that that none of us other mods supported, and really caused turmoil with a lot of posters. That is a way to lose your mod tools, go on twitter bashing everyone but Jesus, and get banned.
Put it this way. I have seen a lot of posters come back to this board today just to post in that thread stating that delta was the reason that they don't come here anymore. orangeasylum was one of this board's best posters, and he has been absent for a long time.
I never blamed JC
And jesus Mountie, I was joking that we were responsible lol, you know me better than that
I just wanted to take credit for it for phuns
