If threads like this don't exist then the whole task wouldn't be so hard for you.

you are right, the title was clear, the content is not relevant.

TC - so tell me...you clicked on the thread and you saw the article after this:

"Given the Crocs apparent weakness, at least against the heavyweights who boast a big man - with Anstey out, their stocks are on the improve.

Now to solve their b/u point guard dilemma."

...how is that NOT a comment that is relevant and specific to the Crocs???

And when you make the claim "....you didn't start the thread to post relevant news - you started it to have a Crocs discussion" - firstly, thats something you simply cant know, is it??? Its your interpretation and one of a few possible explanations and that comment of yours is only what you surmise.

In fact, I WAS posting what I thought WAS news. Unlike some here, I had no idea Anstey was out and when it crossed news.com.au in the headlines, I believed it to be a "breaking" news story - with implications for the Crocs (and others...)

If that is a misuse of the way threads are devised here.....so be it. Mea culpa. But I doubt it.

Rather, I think this - as an issue - is but a storm in that little teacup you call a head.

Great, you mentioned the Crocs in the title and opening sentence, but those comments are the most boring discussion starters, like, ever. They certainly weren't worthy of a new thread.

After I queried why this was meant to be a Crocs thread, you clearly said "Of course it is." That was pretty much all I needed to go on to surmise what your intentions were. Sorry for reading what you said correctly - I'll know better for next time.

On one hand you're willing to admit that you'll wear the blame for starting a pointless thread but then you're going to defend you're right to do so? Thats why this shit gets carried away - instead of just saying "whoops, didnt see the other thread" you turn this in to a huge issue and we are all silly for not realising this lengthy Crocs discussion is soooooo interesting.

I spent a minute collating the past couple of pages of threads (see below). According to your logic, a fair percentage of these should not have been started but rather all be subsumed under some sort of mega-thread.

Yes, when haggard said to eliminate unneccessary threads, he meant combine all of them in to one.

FFS its bad enough when you guys all fight about thoughts on teams/games/players/etc. do we really need to have a massive argument about what a thread is about and whether it should exist?

This specific topic post (impact of Anstey's injury on a given team) should've gone in the existing Crocs off-season discussion thread, which you already read and post to (no trawling required). Those interested in the Crocs and the impact an opponent's injury might have on their fortunes would also already be reading that thread (again, no trawling required), could set a single watch/subscription and remain aware of such discussions.

Given that it's a significant injury to a major player, it might warrant a thread of its own, but in that case, you'd leave off "Crocs chances improve" and keep it broad, right?

At some point in the past I believe there was a sticky thread outlining best practice for off-season topics and it requested that all off-season discussion for a team was kept to a single "Team X off-season thread"-style thread.

That's all I'm getting at - if you want a specific Crocs chat, put it in the Crocs thread. If you want to announce the injury and discuss it more broadly, then post "Anstey hip surgery, out half the season."

Some might argue Isaac that the title could be Anstey out for half of season - Tigers chances improve.

Sorry for contributing to getting this thread back on topic.

Khazzouh is not coming home.

Expect an import soon.

Here are my 4 picks for an import big...

Saer Sene - Great wingspan... Big body... Pretty athletic.

Jelani McCoy - Above average athleticism for his size... Has good quickness around the basket

Austin Croshere - Good shooting touch... Nice rebounding skills.

Paul Davis - good size... Nice inside-outside game... good offensive player

The Tigers really want Donta Smith though.

Besides that the Tigers were never the favourite and with Chris out for a while the advantage goes to all teams including the Crocs. But you know the Tigers won't have some short changed roster for long, they'll be making moves

And aren't you supposed to credit the source of your cut and paste article so Derek doesn't get calls from lawyers.

I'm also with TC on this.

The only way I can see this thread being related to anything "Crocs" is that Anstey being injured makes him a "Crock" ( Aussie slang for injured)

With no good Aussie bigs left (unless they pull Pep out of retirement but what shape would he be in), and the few good import bigs making super dollars at Euro power clubs, the Tigers really need to sign a 2-3 import immediately to give them a quick athletic team that can cover their size deficiency.
When did Pep retired?

Without that, even if Anstey returns in January I doubt they would be close enough to make a run at the playoffs.
Which Knight? Ben () or Matt ()?

BTW Bathie is only an DP, Matt O'Hea is the other player in the 10.
