Thread: Scores in titles

  1. #1

    Default Scores in titles

    Is it asking too much for people not to put the score of a meet in the title of a thread? I dvr a lot of matches and watch them when I can. They are mostly Big 10 matches on BTN, but as most of you know, they usually show the matches on a delay. I like to watch without knowing the result.

    I mean no disrespect. I am just asking, politely, for people not to post the score or anything like "team x downs team z" in the thread title. Couldn't you just title it "team x vs. team z results?" Sorry for the rant.

    No problem ,quinn14 , I know I will only post the RESULTS in the thread , not the title from now on . A lot of guys do come here for results however and I cannot speak for everyone.

    ...another solution would be to watch the match before you go to a site that publishes results...

    That is true. But it is also why I don't get on the college thread until I have watched the match. Sometimes I have to wait until children are done watching cartoons or until my wife is done watching Grey's Anatomy. Yet, I can flip open the computer to try and find some matches on the "good matches" thread. Unfortunately, for me, I can also see the score of a match that I have taped. Kinda ruins the match. I guess I could turn off spongebob and make my niece and nephew cry and therefore also ruining my wrestling watching experience. But that sucks, too.

    I was only asking. If it is too much to ask, then just keep doing it. I just don't really see why it would be a problem not to do it.

    I'm sure most people won't have a problem doing that. It's that stupid copy/paste function!

    I guess the issue I have with that is there are so many ways to figure out results even if it isn't in a thread title specifically. Someone can mention results in a completely unrelated thread, someone can start a thread with a major match/upset in the dual, etc. Bottom line - if you want to avoid knowing the results of a college wrestling match that already ended, going to a college wrestling board is a very unwise idea.
