Cant believe people took the bait and fed that troll post lol. Didnt even dignify a reply IMHO.

There is plenty of good areas for soccer in the US depending on what you are looking for. Luckily it seems to be increasing a little bit every year too!

I'll try to get this thread re-opened later tonight/early tomorrow morning.

One thing that doesn't fly here are personal insults, racist comments, posting idiotic pictures, and general basic BS behavior.

This thread will stay open.
This forum will not tolerate flaming, trolling, racist comments, and everything else that the City Data Terms Of Service spells out which everybody agreed to before participating in this message board.

Suspensions come first, bans come later. It is one thing to disagree about the merits of a sport versus another sport, but this board will not tolerate the nonsense that went on here on this thread this morning. I interpret an individual who clearly disrespects the forum, the thread, and the members to be someone who has no business on here.

Ok, here's the deal guys. This has happened before in the soccer forum and it will happen again. The next time a troll comes to town and starts talking about how soccer is a pansy sport, nothing compared to American Football etc, please, please, PLEASE use the report post button, or send me or another moderator a DM. I appreciate that you soccer forum regs are a passionate bunch that want to defend your sport, but as you know we have a high standard here on CD. So if someone is simply firing off insults and not really making any concrete points, please don't engage them, and report them.

I am all for discussion, and heck, we can even do the American-football vs soccer debate in a reasonable fashion, I have yet to see that argument not fall into a flame war.

Needless to say, I'm going to be deleting a lot of posts in this thread, and I guess we can reopen it, but repeat offenders on this issue have been warned.

Do not troll, and do not feed the trolls.

Thanks

Yours is the only post in the last exchange I didn't delete. Well said. Don't take the bait in the future people.

Debate is good, combative/insulting back and forth is not.

I second this as I took the bait and kept being reeled in.

We all take the bate from time to time, were all people. I've even taken the bait, fed the troll then reported our posts lol.

Anyway back on topic. Ill be looking to move in a few years. Id love to stick near my Colorado Rapids or at the bare minimum within a 7hr drive to an away game. Having an active adult/geriactric football league will have a huge bearing on where I move to.

Thank you Double H...we dont mind some ball busting but there is a difference between that and being an outright a-hole.
