    Also, a quote supporting the title or some commentary wouldn't hurt.

    "McGrady would be a good fit for the Raptors not only because of his ties to the fan base, but because they really need a leader. Don't get me wrong. DeMar DeRozan, Jose Calderon, Ed Davis and Jerryd Bayless are fine young players with a ton of potential. Yet, they don't have a role model/mentor on the team with them to teach them how to become effective leaders themselves."
    By saying this, the Author is insinuating that McGrady would be able to teach them how to become effective leaders ... Oh Bleacher Report. Why do you suck sooo much?

    Bleacher report is the Toronto Sun of basketball websites, minus their daily future stripper profiles (ie/ the sunshine girls)

    None of us said we think you are stupid. I certainly don't.
    We just acknowledged the idiocy of the article, as you have.

    Haha. T-Mac is gonna teach Jose how to be a leader.

    For the record I might actually read the Bleacher Report is they had Sunshine Girls. Or Bleacher Girls.

    A while ago I posted a "kill bleacher report" thread. Never got read because it got banished to the "site suggestions" thread location. Now do you believe we need to delete this crappy ass website from the rss feed and any other location on the republic?

    nobody is calling you anything, son.. just pointing out the idiocy of bleacher report.

    it's the equivalent of pooping in your hand, throwing it at the wall, and calling it art

    Then why did you create it? My point is if you're going to make a thread then commentary (explaining the thread to posters), testing the link to make sure it works and having a decent title that's not misleading are all important.

    At the end of the day Joey and myself practically created this thread neither of us probably cares about. I changed the title to something not misleading, I fixed the link so people could see the article and he posted the piece of the article which had meaning.

    I don't think you're stupid at all. I'm really glad you come in here and talk ball with us. I just wanted to try and express how a thread should be created because I find myself having to fix a lot of threads...

    BR articles aren't a problem if people stop posting misleading titles.

    If I were to start a thread based on an article from BR would make it clear in the title that this is just opinion, not fact. I would then offer up a quote, personal commentary about the quote and maybe again make it clear that this isn't factual information.

    The only time this stuff negatively affects the RSS is when people post misleading titles.
