Who are considered the insiders on this board besides the obivious PM and BM (if there are any)? Is the language content tame or is more bunkeresque? Thanks.

kick 'em in the ass, big blue.
I wouldn't consider myself an insider at all from the standpoint of having connections. I have none. I try to pay attention and spend more time on here than I should, but insider? Nope.
AUHEEL has had some information regarding certain things at certain times, but really, we don't have a group that really consistently claims to know too terribly much. We have some I guess, but I wouldn't say anyone has been reliable enough often enough to be labeled our board's main "insider". AUgirl17 (?) has had some good stuff at times I guess. I think there are at least a couple parents of players that share things occasionally, but I think they are on other boards as well (?).
Phillip and Byran (and Ron more sporadically) report very reliable, very up front, very professionally, and most here value that far more than insiders posts. I would say the vast majority of the long-time members of this board are here specifically for what I just noted.
Language here is pretty tame, and I think most prefer it that way. Regardless of how people talk among their friends, the board has typically been a forum in which we don't use colorful language much. Not so much because it's "wrong", this has just been a place where it hasn't seemed appropriate....you know, like cussing in a job interview at Deloitte. At the same time, I don't know that many are personally offended or anything if you do use language...but like I said, it just hasn't been that kind of board for the most part, and I think most like that characteristic.
Overall, Phillip allows almost any point of view to be expressed. He doesn't nix much just because it's negative or critical.
It's all about how it's presented.
He will let critical go, no problem, but if the "critical" post also includes insults to players, coaches, or other members, it will be deleted. This has recently come to include calling other members "bammers" or "trolls" just because they have a negative view of something. (reason being is that most of those posts quickly lead to nothing but name calling matches that destroy discussion and whole threads).
If the critical post includes rumors that are unsubstantiated and expressed in a way to embarrass or unfairly characterize a player, coach or member, it will likely be deleted.
Otherwise, people are free to share all points of view. The opinions here aren't really censored, but the "tact" is, and most are thankful for that.
Having been here since sometime in the summer of 2009, I will say that I think the average age on the board has traditionally been quite high for your typical football message board. That average, just guessing here, has probably come down a bit in the last month or so. Just a guess on that.
Anyway, I'm sure Phillip and Ron and Bryan are glad to have you. Hope you like it and War Eagle!
PS. And you'll come to realize that I sometimes write really, really long, painful to read posts. I can ramble.
