Just curious. I used to post way (too often) on the old MLIVE Detroit Lions Board in the early 2000’s. I was Tylerdurdan there just like here. I’m sure I recognize a lot of folks username here too. How many of you used to post regularly back in the days of Tom “Killer” Kowalski?
(Sorry if I should have posted this somewhere else in the forum).
I sure did! I would come here and also go to Mlive. I wrote messages to them to bring back their old message board and they refused, so I only come here. Bill Emkow and his MLIVE team completely lost me about 5 or 6 years ago and I don’t plan on going back.
Never poated or even really frequented the MLive forum.
Nate’s board, on whatever platform it was on back on the late 1990s or early 2000s was my introduction to Lions message boards. Back in the “tell’n it like it is” Dom days. Think it might have been the Rivals platform.
Either way it’s when I got addicted to this message board stuff and been following Nate and his followers around ever since.
There really is no better Lions message board around. Been great to see how “The Den” has matured and grown throughout the years.
I post in the Lions subreddit from time to time but it’s mostly a meme production factory. But boanerges posts pretty regularly over there and he does really good work. Used to post here too but he’s been gone for awhile.
Netrat is also a cap-focused dude who has maintained and shared Lions cap info like a much scaled down OTC. Like deadstroke, he goes back some time to one of the earlier online cap dudes (Adam somebody or other).
Good dude but his forum became a safe haven for MLive trolls. Imagine a board dominated by JRLion.
As far as nostalgia goes, I spent more time at TLF, The Lions Fanatics. It was well moderated with tighter rules on language.
I didn’t post under a handle at MLive….I was just a college punk trolling people but I remember legendary pissing matches between Wolvy and Angry Driver…then Wolvy and the poster named sid….I used to anonymously instigate between those guys they had me busting my guts laughing….wow man
