This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

This will probably bring sprack back to RH by Chuck84
Because he can't resist talking about the Cubs.
However, I think it's fair to point out that at least the Cubs have taken some very positive steps over the past few years. I aim to be clear here: No, fellow Chisox fans and Cubs detractors in general, by no means do these moves guarantee greatness. However, any observer must note that they have made a serious attempt to get the right people in charge of personnel, including arguably the game's best manager. They also just signed one of the game's top pitchers. Again, nothing here precludes them falling apart like they did in '04 and '08. But, at a minimum, I think everyone has to acknowledge that they've taken some very positive first steps.
So, when will ND do something similar?
