    Can I just point out that this place is now a bona fide rival to Gator Country, to the extent that they now refer to it as "the other site" (TOS)? This place has only been around for a few years.

    I don't think anyone disputes that GC has been the biggest Gator fan forum for decades and has really only been challenged by large-network sites like Scout and Rivals.

    So props to Ox for building up a successful independent site from virtually nothing. That's harder than it sounds.

      That “donkey “ douchebag they refer to as “law” should have his pie hole stuffed full with every one of his chickensh!t anti-Gator posts and held down until he either swallows that wad or pukes it back up

        This place is great because it has gobs of personality. If some people can’t handle it I’m sure there’s a pint of vanilla ice cream out there with your name on it

            I lurk on SG and haven't posted there since 98 but came out of the woodwork to tell you that Byrd is a puss. WTF?? I felt like I was reading the diary of a 13 year old girl.

                After Muschamp was fired he gave a press conference and sounded somewhat level headed. There was literally a thread on SG about "Should we have kept Muschamp?" Butters gets hired and you'd think we just brought in the next Spurrier. He gets blown out the last 3 games, goes to OT vs. 3-9 FAU, and you better not DARE say a negative thing - it was Muschamp's fault!! (the same guy who had a 10 page thread about "should we have kept him?").

                I was one of the founding members of gatorcountry. I've drank beers w/ Ray (Solari), Franz, Bob Redman, and many others from that site. I started the thread "breaking" the Zook got into a fight at the frat house (I knew a local sports radio/tv guy who told me and it hadn't made the news yet so I started the thread. It was probably the longest thread in swampgas history).

                I left there in the 2008 season when they let PD run rampant in the 'insiders' forum (the pay board). I rejoined w/ a new username about 2012 or so. I was posting regularly until jhbyrd started posting there and I was done with it.

                The homerism is too much. I get it that being "negative" is bad for their business model....but being realistic is not "negative".

                  If thinking that allowing a link to another board is going to cause some kind of mass exodus of your members, then there's a problem with your board.

                  Have some faith in your product, for God's sake. It's embarrassing.

                    There's hardly any negativity here. After UK there was some noise. After beating LSU? Nada. I don't think he's happy unless he is trying to stamp out perceived negativity. I'm a card carrying dumper and I don't have crap to say. In fact, Mullen is doing great. I had him on ignore the day he came over here. No loss.

                      I'm certainly not surprised that you have this opinion.

                      His post was for sympathy, mine was for traffic.

                      But it's more than that. I think rivalries are fun and healthy, and I like the fact that Swamp Gas is considered a hated rival. It's a hoot, and I'll do what I can to play it up.

                        They called me a dictator. That's completely true, but it hurt my feelings like hell.

                          Exactly. Rub some dirt on it, pussies.

                          I take it on the chin as much as anyone, certainly more than catlady did.

                          We have always been a sports bar atmosphere, and proud of it. Some of these guys arent safe in this environment, I guess.

                              No one is afraid of other sites here.

                              Nor do we care if people choose to post on more than one.

                                LMAO these are direct quotes from page 3 of tweetybyrd's thread, which is now locked by the GatorCountry Gestapo of course:

                                Post #52 by @divits: "Good lord, just listen to yourself. "Mean girls". You sit to pee I presume."

                                Post #54 by @jhbyrd: "Wrong again and you are the one who sits and pees."

                                  jumping on peoples asses is how men relate to each other. My friends and I are the same way. It’s like he doesnt have any experience with male friends :scratchchin:

                                    I just brought a little diplomacy over there. Should smooth things over.

                                        Love a dude that says they don't listen to factual discourse, when everytime facts were bought up he would move the goalposts.

                                          Okay, 500 posts and this one has pretty much run its course.

                                          Thanks for playing everyone.
