    Wow. If this is real, itís a very juvenile move.

    Not exactly the smartest way to gain more members.

    ďHey, hereís a brilliant promotional idea. Iíll ban a person whoís been a loyal paying member on my site for years, then bash him by calling him the worst X poster in history. Then Iíll disrespect that loyal, paying member even more by offering a 75% discount to celebrate that loyal, paying customer has been banned from my site!Ē That ought to get X fans to jump at a chance become another loyal, paying member of my site.Ē

    I really the site and all the info that Rick gives. Not sure if everyone knows, but as a member benefit, you get Paramount+ for free. That's almost worth it by itself.

    PS- Don't tell me that this forum doesn't have its cliques and unbearable posters.

    Seems very catty and childlike. Maybe Rick really is 12-13 years old.

    People can think whatever they want about the guy, and I have never been a fan of his condescending retorts. But I am not 100% sure Rick Broering controls the 247 Twitter account.

    I just joined 247 in March around the Miller hype. I do not foresee renewing my subscription. I'm not a big follower of recruiting, and Rick doesn't offer much in the way of breaking news that isn't available elsewhere, nor is he a particularly insightful hoops analyst.

    As for MuskiePimp, he's far from one of the worst posters in Xavier history. On the Xavier-Duke thread he sounded a lot like LH, but I haven't seen that consistently and am curious why he was banned.

    Yeah, if anyone has the worst posters in Xavier message board history its us over here! Who the hell do they think they are over there?

    Out of curiosity, just from a message board standpoint, is there more activity there or here?

    I believe posters here on xavierhoops.com provide a tad more depth. on 247, it's a lot of "Ra Ra Ra!" or "Great job Rick!"

    It honestly depends on the day and what's going on. The highest traffic day in this site's history was when Sean left for Arizona. The Second was Mack to Louisville. Other high days include around the times of the Elite 8 Wins. It ebbs and flows.

    Oh yeah, I'll never forget that day. I was still in school. I'll never forget being in a med school breakout room at SLU, supposed to be studying for something, but instead spending hours upon hours on this board.
