You aren't going to see me post "guaranteed Win" if were playing a team like the Heat or even an average team.

Their record would make them average.

Well I think they are a shit team.

The Raptors could easilly switch around a couple of those tough losses for wins and were looking pretty average on the W/L record

We have more talent than Orlando, and were 8-19.

Guaranteed win


K so that -1 was either Bill Haverchuk or LX

They have a much narrower point differential than Toronto at -1.4. Hollinger ranks them 17, just behind Brooklyn, and just ahead of Boston. That's all pretty average.

But yeah. It's guaranteed if you end up just taking the loss and switching it to a win.

Yeah, make it so that you can check WHO is giving you a thumbs up or down.

Really simple, don't know why this hasn't been instituted yet.

Have you seen this elsewhere? You know what would be more simple? We just agree or disagree in actual responses in posts. Instead of reading those posts I get to see posts where someone whines about getting a thumbs down.

That and/or just don't care about the +/- and don't bitch about it. Who really cares who gave you a -1 or why they did it?

They had that function on another non-sports related board I used to visit to discuss other topics. When you clicked on the rating number, the usernames of the people who voted up or down would pop-up.

There are forums around the web that have implemented a system where you can see WHO gave you a "props". You guys are running VBulletin, and so are those forums. It can easily be done.

A system of transparency is necessary to restore balance and order to the forum if you are going to keep the thumbs up feature.

It is clear that the posters of RF want the system to stay in place (see poll)

Let's add a little transparency here though and stop allowing those who abuse the feature to hide.

TBH LX, I'm still not sure why the powers that be here think that it's a great feature. All it does is promote trolling.

If showing who thumbed who isn't an option then just leave the thumbs up option and take the thumbs down away.

We got along just fine without it before.... here... at EBS... and at ESPN.

The fact any of you care who clicked on a stupid thump up/down button is comical.
