    DBR Handy Pocket Reference suggestion thread

    Here is a link to the DBR Handy Pocket Reference, version 7.1. I figured someone would ask sooner or later, so why not link it now.

    As when we were on the interim board system, let me emphasize that the editorial comment in the banner is not mine, and a couple typos have been introduced, but that basically this is the current authoritative text.

    OK, my first act as a moderator is to abuse that power by sticky-ing the Handy Pocket Reference. If anyone has any serious objections to that, please PM me.

    If I ever revise it again, I'll change the link. I do have some archived suggestions from people in January before the first board migration.

    Someday, we can put "the board sucks" (in reference to the temporary board) in Extinct Topics. The new board is freaking awesome.

    Actually, when I see your avatar, my brain provides that Russian "hey" song you hear in the Warner Bros. cartoons.

    And I love you too, Mullet.

    Ai yai yai.

    Hopefully it goes in extinct topics in a few months. But I have a feeling people are going to be re-hashing this one for quite a while.

    Well, I was thinking right at the beginning of next season. But I welcome input. Like I said, I wanna toss in an item about how the current PG isn't Hurley.

    Now why are you going and bringing a "Lost" character into this

    Just kidding! I think that is most appropriate.

    That does give me a little perverse pride.

    The discussion is being removed from the sticky area. Look for a sticky thread for the permanent link to Throatybeard's Handy Pocket Reference.

    Please post suggestions for the HPR in this thread. Some folks gave me some good suggestions late last season, but of course I've forgotten since then.

    I aim to do a big revision over TG.

    From SilkyJ:

    THROATY - I think we need a 6-M: We need to recruit some big time "bigs"

    Should we move things that reference the SBBS and Coach G to the retired category?

    A few suggestions

    So, I'm an editor-type person, so always have comments on written docs. Please take with whatever-sized grain of NaCl you feel appropriate.

    Missing subjects:
    * New Forum questions:
    - How do I: Post polls; quote; multi-quote; view only new messages

    Additions:
    Section 2 -
    - John Edwards hates Duke. Don't vote for him.
    - That nascar guy loves Duke.

    Section 6 -
    - Recruit {x} is awesome, he's going to get so much playing time, to be taken from [sophomore w/ "disappointing" freshman year.]

    Section 7 -
    - Can we just have an "FDA line", that mentions Asack, how much the field sucks, the stands suck, the fans suck, the admin sucks, and howmuch better life was in the 80's in general?
    - The playcalling sucks; stallball is boring
    - Chicken or egg - better fans/facilities will bring a better team, or a better team will bring better fans/facilities?

    Section 8 -
    -- All of the above, now on YouTube!!

    Section 9, subsection H -- some obligatory reference to the Duke LAX case and don't rush to judgement.

    Section 14
    -- No, I didn't understand Greybeard's post either.
    -- Why am I suddenly [insert status/name here], and what's with that number?

    Section 15
    -- I really liked Coach G, but she just didn't have the [insert characteristic] needed to win the big dance. I think Coach P does.
    -- Coach G didn't love us enough, good riddance/Coach G got a bum deal and not enough respect from the Sports department.

    Section 16 - what, no beer?!

    Questions:
    Section 6a - really? Maybe modified to "We need a [insert recruit type] who is [select height] (aka where have you gone, Mr. Hill/Boozer/Hurley?)

    Stallball

    Section 7 -
    - The playcalling sucks; stallball is boring
    Actually, stallball is covered by 1E:
    1e) Krzyzewski’s management of the clock (AKA stall ball) will bite us/has bitten us in the %$#%$#%$#.
    although quite honestly I don't think that adequately covers my hatred of the prevent defense/stallball at all.

    I'm sure glad you didn't want him to change 9F. It is perfect just the way it is!
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!
