Welcome to the Bills Forum Directory

The purpose of this thread is so members can easily navigate to important Bills related topics. Below I have listed various threads along with some descriptions. I will update this periodically by adding and subtracting threads so that it remains up to date. There is also an up to date depth chart and other player information. Suggestions to help tweak or improve the directory are welcome.

That's something I don't think Webby would allow. Links to articles and news to to stimulate discussion is encouraged, but he doesn't want links to other websites for promotion. Having a section dedicated to links to mock drafts on other sites wouldn't create much discussion. Instead, the sites that I would be linking to would benefit from free promotion.

So why does he have these on his site?

I got some clarification from Webby:

Webmaster wrote:
We exchange links with other sites. They link to our mock and we link to their mock. That is completely separate from the forums.

The Bills forum doesn't need a topic with just links to mock drafts. If a member wants to discuss a pick in a certain mock then starting a topic with a link for discussion would be fine. But there is no need to have a topic with just a bunch of links. That isn't the purpose of a forum. Forums are for discussion.

I love this. It's so hard to go back and find a topic sometimes because of how the site is set up. Anything past 3 pages you have to go back one page at a time. It can be a pain in the butt sometimes if you can't remember the topic name and can't find it in a search.

I'm going to unsticky this as we head into draft weekend in order to reduce the clutter at the top of the page. On Monday I'll bring it back to the top and update it.

I added the following categories to the original post:
- 2009 Draft Picks
- Reported UDFA Signings
- 2010 Free Agents
- Bills Roster

I will add the draft picks and UDFA's to the roster section as each player is officially signed per BuffaloBills.com.
