TP.....I get that itís the dog days of August, but so many p---sing  contests going on all the time and so much crying and whining is kind of sickening.

Also, I have encountered lots of slow load times again for the site. So often and so much so that Iíve been spending most of my time on RealGM and Celtics reddit. I give up on trying to open any forum topics.

Hope the new forums donít have these issues.

If you want to discuss basketball, by all means start a thread and discuss it. I am sure most of those posting in the political threads will also enjoy the discussion.

Since very few basketball threads are being made and this is probably an important time in our nation's history, many want to discuss it. Nothing wrong with that.

My guess is starting mid September, there will be countless basketball threads to enjoy.

It's hard when you unsubscribe from current events (politics) too.
The Nets will finish with the worst record and the Celtics will end up with the 4th pick.

Pretty much every point in US history has been an "important time in our nations history". The topic just varied.

I never understood why that has to take over a basketball forum. Do you really think the the comment sections on CNN and Fox News articles have back and forth basketball discussions? I'lll wait while anyone finds an example  ::)

Be careful...or you will be SHOUTED down.

I rarely log into this site anymore,cause it's full of political experts...used to be Celtics fans.

I don't see why people complain about threads that they aren't interested in?  If you don't want to give your 2cents just find a thread among the thousands here to contribute to.   There are a ton of threads here that I am not interested in, but I don't start another thread about it.

Until the powers that be decide that current events threads aren't allowed, it is within the rules to talk about it.

No one is shouting anyone down.  Where did that happen?  Not in this thread.

Don't worry. Last month was like 7 out of 9 threads about LeBron James free agency decision, and a Kawhi Leonard merged thread on a Celtics forum!

It is possible to ask the mods to remove you from Current Events. Then, you won't see any threads opened there.
