I always thought this site was some sort of a psychological experiment.  Someday a paper in a medical journal will cover a 20 year study of the differences and similarities of all of the participants, and try to explain how this place is a microcosm of society in general.  Maybe that also explains the real purpose of PPP.

Apparently, Dunkirk Don used that as an excuse for his Draft Board Thread.

Being away from WNY for 3 decades, I appreciate coming here to talk Bills football every day. Thanks to SDS for making it happen, and thanks to the good posters for keeping the quality high.

I happened to watch the end of Field of Dreams the other day, where one or another of the ghost players thanks Ray for having built the field so they all could play ball again.

 

This morning I was thinking about how I come here multiple times every day to find news about the Bills and people talking about the Bills.  I get essentially no intelligent discussion about the Bills here in Connecticut, just the usual Patriot blather and "the Bills are terrible" conventional wisdom.   Here, I find people who actually know about the team.  I don't agree with all of them all of the time, but at least what we have here is people who actually can name  more than Allen and McCoy on the Bills' roster.  

 

So I have to say thanks to SDS and all the others for making this place possible and keeping it running.  It's great to have a field to play on, instead of living in limbo like Shoeless Joe Jackson and his buddies.  

 

Go BILLS!

Hey Shaw....thank you for being you.  

 

It really is a good place.  It took me about a year to get used to this over BBMB....even though the last 2 years of BBMB was trash.

 

I really can’t believe that people would prefer to use BBMB over TBD.  I joined both in the very beginning and it was quite obvious from the start that this was a superior product and community

BBMB used to be good but definitely went down here.  I just knew a lot of people at BBMB for the 10 years I was on it.  That's the only part I missed.

Most came over there though.

Did you not know this place existed while you were on the other place?  I never really cared to interact over there.  It was more of a place to go when TBD was quiet

One was owned by the Bill and had to follow stricter runes.   One I think was no politics.

 

As a Private owner Scott would like us to act like adults but allows us some leeway

Its been close to 2.5 years and some people still rag on the BBMB refugees.

 

Most of the dregs of the BBMB have gone from here ...

I didn't know this place existed until BBMB shut down. That's when I did a search for Buffalo Bills discussion forums, found several, checked them all out for a few days, and decided that TBD seemed to have the best quality.

 

BBMB was good for a while, but in its last few years it went downhill. Maybe I didn't notice that until I came here and saw how much better TBD is. I'm glad some of the better BBMB posters came over too.

That’s unfortunate, but better late than never!  I’ll be the first to admit I thought bbmb shutting down was the worst thing for TBD as the first few months of integrating the new posters negatively affected my enjoyment here.  As time went on, we (Scott, the mods, the community) regulated properly and most of the bad seeds are no longer.

What was nice about BBMB was the volume.   There were a ton of posters, and there were plenty of active discussions.

 

What was bad about BBMB was the volume.  There were a ton of posters, and it was hard to find good active discussions among all the crud that some people thought fit to post.

their were asshats who thought they owned the site and would ask all new comers -  What banned poster are you 

 

Funny that, said guy (jm2009) was banned from here in 3 months time.

I might thank Scott if he’d update the link to the Bills 2019 schedule. Just total laziness!

Yes, I’ll cheers to that — many thanks, Scott! I’ve been coming here daily for a long long time, though I rarely post. I really appreciate the hard work that goes into updating and moderating this site. Thanks for making this my online favorite Bills destination.

I was never on BBMB, but from what I understand, almost any critcism of the team/coaches/FO etc wasn't tolerated.

 

I'm also a member of the most popular Bills group on Facebook. Don't want to name names, but if you're in there, you know which one I mean. Absolute trash  of a page. Just people posting stale memes about Brady, showing off tattoos, and random pictures of them wearing Bills gear in what they always like to call "enemy territory." Or pictures of wings becuase "Get it? We're from Buffalo so that's our favorite food?"  On the rare occasion they actually talk about football, it's takes that make even the worst TSW article worthy of the cover story of Sports Illustrated.

 

It wasn't until I joined the latter group that I learned to appriciate the camraderie and well thought out posts on here. I don't post much on the main board. Mostly because most of you know so much more about football than I do, that I really don't have anything of value that hasn't already been said. But I've learned a lot from you guys over the years, and met some people that I'd genuinely call friends. Thanks to @SDS and all the other mods (especially @Canadian Bills Fan who I like to think got the job because of my hard work as a campaign manager) for keeping out the riff raff posts.
