I'm really confused on that rule. If you want to discuss a certain player just post his name, what's the beef with that?

Because PA is a crotchety old man, and the fact that I've used the syllable "crotch" in this answer gets the boss excited.

The players name can be in the title, but the big guy likes more descriptive words in the title, as well, which is understandable.

 

So, instead of Jack Eichel, or All About Jack it is better to have as the title ... Jack Eichel really does not like Bud ... Discuss.

 

Just to be clear my second line is a joke, but the first isn't.

How is "All about Jack Eichel" any more descriptive than "Jack Eichel"?

Well, in this case you could have at least put his first name in there. There are other things that "O'Reily" can refer to, which granted, from the context of the board we kind of know what you mean, but it's not hard put a little more detail in there. How about "Ryan O'Reilly, not living up to the hype?" for your thread. As for "All about Jack Eichel", I think that's a special case since there will be tons of discussion.

Plus that thread was originally from when we drafted Eichel and the name was changed later on.

My decision is final. SDS may appear to be the boss, but I am really the one pulling the strings behind the curtain.

In other words, you're meddling?
