Criticizing Anthony Grant used to be one, but it is getting to be more and more common by the day at this point.

A certain QB's ability (#10)
A certain white linebacker
The same PC and cursing rules that (used to) apply to TBB apply to our home board. In addition to that, wishing injury on or insulting the intelligence of players is not well tolerated.
BCS bowl games and imaginary girlfriends
Good to see you're still here panic, I figured you had finally said fvck the bullsh!t.
Oh and anything Phillip Marshall is against is forbidden topic on TBG, nazi mod and what not
Why So Serious?
Anything involving Duron Carter.
I could go on and on...
Criticizing Saban for not immediately kicking out the 4 players
Bashing John Parker Wilson, Brody Croyle, or AJ McCarron (they love their Bama boys)
Being worried about losing any game to any team ever
Basically having any doubts about anything at all
Has anyone ever had reason to criticize AJ? I mean, other than the tattoo thing, dude has been purty hard to criticize.
suggesting that usc could have won natty's in 06 & 07 if pete carroll had started mark sanchez over john david booty in the first place

Tattoo, generally being a complete douche, etc.
He does do some good things in the community and seems to (mostly) do what Saban asks of him. I just can't stand the way he carries himself. I know he's had a better on-field career than McElroy, but I really admired the way Greg carried himself. When you compare a Rhodes scholar candidate who was well spoken and mature to a Mobile Bama boy who seems to be a huge douche, it's not a flattering comparison for AJ.
I just keep my mouth shut about AJ for the most part lately, because he's played so well it's pointless to even broach the subject on BOL. I'm thankful for his high level of play and the role it has had in the titles, I just don't like AJ personally.
But the AJ thing doesn't annoy me nearly as bad as the part about getting killed on BOL for being afraid of losing a game. Of the 3 titles, only one was undefeated, so clearly the fear of losing a game or two is a reasonable one.
I would tend to agree with about AJ for the most part, but being someone that knows his dad and AJ personally (his dad much better), I will say that AJ has done a ton of growing up in the past 2 years. He still has some of the cocky douchiness, but he has definitely matured over the past years. If he would have had this spotlight his 1st or 2nd year on campus, it would have been an absolute train wreck.
I would definitely agree with that. It used to be much worse than it is now.
Alabama fans shouldn't even be posting in here.
You've won 3 out of the last 4 national championships...

If anything, that increases the number of off limits topics on BOL. You can't question anything because people will just say "but we've won 3 out of 4 everything is perfect".
I got torn to shreds over there in the week leading up to the UGA and Notre Dame games for having some doubts.
Obviously against UGA, they were somewhat accurate, although we didn't play well that game, minus the offense in the 2nd half. I must admit I gave Notre Dame a little more credit than they deserved, but we did play one of the 3 best games we have played under Saban (Florida 2009 and Michigan St 2010 being the other 2).
That makes it worse, IMO.
I was worried about both of those games, but especially worried about A&M. That concern turned out to be legitimate. However, I will admit my concerns have been wrong more often than they've been right. But on BOL, everyone was positive that we'd have no trouble handling the Aggies and anyone who thought otherwise was an idiot.
I was very concerned about A&M after the way the LSU game went. I knew the offense wasn't clicking like it had been at times and A&M was a team, unlike LSU, that could really get us in trouble if the offense sputtered....which happened.
You can make that QB criticism in general. Whether it be recruiting, performance, or whether or not Blake Sims should have been moved to so many different positions there will be a meltdown. Remember Saban has a plan...
God, give me patience today. If given strength I may beat someone to death.
Anything involving Aaron Lynch, Deontay Greenberry, Tommy Rees, Tee Shepard, the Bama game, Te'o 40 time, ESPN, anything non traditional about ND (for example the basketball team going with the green uni's for the BE tourney) and drinking in moderation.
