It's good to know who going to win the Superbowl.
The nightmare would be if Baltimore were to win. I love Baltimore too.
The Crescent City is very glad not to have to host the dirty birds for the Superbowl this year. We hate the Falcons.
I still don't know what you're talking about.
R4, what do people in the Crescent City think of Drew Brees' ass (not Brees', just his ass)?
Kaepernick is a phenomenon. Natural born athlete. Not happy Alex Smith got injured but thems the breaks. So glad we got CK.
Quest for Six!!
The Crescent City adores every bit of Drew Brees. The discerning among us find his ass the best part.
What's the Crescent City? What did San Francisco do?
San Francisco rid Crescent City of street crime, R10. Please do try to keep up.
New Orleans is the Crescent City and we're hosting the Superbowl. San Fran beat Atlanta and so they are one half of the two teams that will meet for the game.
Go 9ers!! Kaepernick is a badass!!
A thread for the football hooligans.
Why are you congratulating a city that did fuck all vs. the athletes who were paid a pile of money to pay the sodding game?
Because the city won, you idiot!!!11
"Because the city won"
No, it didn't. The team won.
Oh don't be pedantic. The team represents the city. The city won too.
The city did not win shit.
Overpaid steroid cases won.
You mad, R19?
Not mad at all, just a realist.
Cities don't win. Private business wins.
The players are from all over, the owners are from all over.
The ONLY reason a team is in the city is because the city is willing to give to the Team owner.
Sports teams take much more than they give to a city.
You sound mad, R19/R21.
I completely agree with R19/R21.
As I have said, not mad just a realist R22.
There are no logical reasons to support sports teams.
Oh well, party on San Francisco!!
R21 is right. Sports monopolies are the very essence of bad economics, wherein money is taken from waitresses and janitors and taxpayers given to a few rich owners and a few hardly more numerous set of players in order to enact a tightly regulated pretense of competition.
Time to change the butt-plug, R26.
Now if these franchises had and all gay cheer leading squad in those cute pleated shirts, we'd be singing a different show tune. Buff gays in pleats are a super turn on.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
