Can I take a nuke to this thread?
First, in what language is this title?
1) Michael- "a" before the "e"
2) be signed or leave out the "be".
Recap: Option #1- When will Michael Crabtree be signed? OR
Option #2- When will Michael Crabtree sign?
Second, three options? How about: 1) In five minutes; 2) In six minutes; 3) Never
Where is the graphic showing the detonation of a nuclear bomb?
I'm so f*&king sorry about my gramma Professor. or is it (!) Bite me MadDog!
Is this the best you've got to offer the board? I'm not looking for a Pulitzer Prize winning entry, but this is so sloppy that it deserves to be nuked.
Once again, to many new on the board: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO START A THREAD!
You can simply sit back and post your thoughts on another thread.
However, if you feel inspired to start a new thread, there should be some basics to follow:
1) Spell the player's name correctly. Is that far too much to ask?
2) Spell check, and check your grammar. Your thread is going to be read, and people are going to make a judgment about your intelligence. Is this the way you want to come across to the board? As unintelligent? If you are sloppy, you are putting a big bullseye on yourself as someone to not be taken seriously.
3) Finally, if you are going to create a poll, think about the options you are presenting people. In this case, there are only three. Two options make some sort of sense: 1) This weekend; and 2) Next week; the third option: 3) Day after camp. What does "day after camp" mean? The day after camp opened? The day after vets reported? The day after the players hit the practice field? Or the day after camp closes? Just very sloppy. Sloppiness will be nuked. There is no excuse.
So, what happens if Crabtree doesn't sign this weekend, or next week? What if he signs today, Thursday, or Friday of this week? You are presenting a very small window of time: this weekend, next week, and some undefined time.
How about marking out specific chunks of time, so you are guaranteeing someone to be correct.
1) Before this weekend.
2) Over this weekend.
3) Between next Monday and the first preseason game.
4) Between the first and second preseason game
5) Between the second the third preseason game.
6) Between the third and fourth preseason game.
7) Between the fourth preseason game and the start of the regular season.
8) Sometime after the first game.
9) He does not sign with the Niners.
So, in recap, your thread was not impressive in any way. It was not well thought-out, nor well-executed. Put more time and energy and thought into your next entry, and people will stop mocking you.
