Since we're going to be getting into the news heavy cycle of the NFL season, I figured a reminder of the guidelines for starting topics would be in order.

NFL News Forum Guidelines

Guidelines for starting a new topic:
1. Check to ensure there isn’t already an existing or similar topic.

2. Create a subject title that accurately describes the topic. Titles like ‘Wow, big trade’ or ‘He got cut’ won’t help anyone and will lead to duplicates.

3. Always post a link to your source and include a brief summary of the news. Don’t just post a link; make sure you include a brief summary. We want to read your views and this will help stimulate great discussions.

4. Only post rumors where you can link to a reputable source. Don’t post rumors you heard on the radio or from your friend or that you made up.

5. The new NFL News forum is only for discussion of reputable news stories. It's not to be used for games, predictions, comparisons, etc.

When starting a topic, it is absolutely important to include a link to a reputable source. The News Forum is not for innuendo, rumor, or blind conjecture; it is for discussion of meaningful and impactful news that has actually occurred or likely will occur, according to a reliable source.

Remember, the purpose here is to discuss the impact these stories have. So, include your thoughts when you post a link to the story to start the discussion off. Threads not following this rule will be locked.

And, don't forget that this isn't WAYTA or another thread in TAST. Please provide productive responses. One word answers, +1, simply replying with a sarcastic pic or gif aren't going to help foment discussion.

Thanks again and happy posting!

If you don't follow this guideline, you are post padding and are subject to a WARNING. If you can't share all of your thoughts before you click "Submit" then let someone else break the news.
