Hi all i have always wondered whether any of our We bleed purple forum contributors , Are on other forums , As our forum seems to have quite a small following  , This can be a good thing but also a little frustrating as in am i talking to myself? Goby is an amazing contributor and very knowledgeable. I have started posting on another forum only because our community is not as active , Although i will have to say the most sensible comments are here!

Quality, not quantity.  I do occasionally contribute to another forum, but it's not football (or sport) related.

Stay with us gtar, it goes a little quite at times but  we are about to start training this morning i think and there is always news on who is doing what there.
A few more weeks and it will be a beehive  and you are right about this forum being sensible, not to mention lovable folk and we look out for each other.  
In other words we are a family.   A purple one.[smile]

I am on several gtar.I am on a site called ozfooty, also one called FanFootyForum.
The oz footy site is a mainly WAFL site that has all types on there.It is very biased against the two AFL sides here in WA.But I enjoy some banter there.Some hate the two sides, others are Dockers or Eagles supporters who enjoy talking footy.It has a wide range of forums, but not all get used. A West Aussie site.But at the moment it is very quiet.
The FFF is a big one , I think mainly it is about fantasy footy, which is not my kettle of fish.A load of forums , but again very quiet there right now.

I also have joined a site called Talking footy.Very much a young persons site.I feel out of place and some remarks that come back are very childish I find.
But it all depends on what you want I guess.I enjoy it here.I still think we can discuss things well, even though we may disagree

Hi gtar58 (like the name) I have posted a few times on another site (BF), but like a lot of other sites, it can get a bit silly at times. I guess my biggest beef with some of the other sites is the scapegoating that occurs on them which is becoming more prevalent. It's the sheer scale of it at times which is really disappointing and I just don't want to be a part of it. There's no way that some of the comments posted could be interpreted as constructive criticism, it is just out and out insults and personal attacks on our players etc and often, each other.

It's a part of social media unfortunately (rapidly becoming a big part) as there is never a shortage of people willing to contribute really negative comments. There isn't one of us who doesn't get frustrated and disappointed in our team and individual players and coaches, but there's a lot to get excited about as well.

We all have different opinions about aspects of the game including players, coaches, game plan and opposition teams, and that is the whole of idea of forums like this one, to exchange those opinions. It's just that some forums manage to strike a good balance between the negative and positive and this just happens to be one of them.

No I don't post anywhere else.  I do read forums though if something has happened and I want the low down, but I don't do it often. 

I think you should be able to call it as you see it but there's a "feel" to some forums that I just can't be bothered with.  It might be a particular sense of humor from the core posters that smacks of elitism or it could be hard core agro that puts me off.  

This site isn't perfect and we all have our moments but I think it kind of balances out. 

It would be nice to have some more people for sure.

Nor do I, but like you Goby i do read them on occasion and on a whole this is a very good site compared to some others.  I think DLAND    is for young guys who want to outdo each other in their sayings.
I am tipping that as our team improves the posters will return in full .
We have taken a bit of a hit these past 2 seasons but i ( Know) we have turned the corner and it will be a very different dockers team that take the ground next season.   I CAN'T WAIT.

The thing I find most annoying on some sites, is that it is ok for some posters to take pot shots at the Dockers and Docker supporters, but have something constructive to say about their side and KAPOW. I guess you all know which lot I am talking about.
They get quite annoyed when you say that they know more about the Dockers than they do about their own side.
The ozfooty site is the best of the rest I find.Some grumpy old men, and I mean that, who haven't some out from the early 80s yet.Still see the WAFL as a very viable competition.
