    Default Seperate forum for Wolfie whining?

    Since it seems every review thread turns into a "Here's why Wolfie sucks, I sure hope Mikey comes back" bonanza, wouldn't it make sense for a seperate forum for that stuff?

    people can bitch about wolfie's stage presence and entertain their uselss "maybe Mike will return!" fantasies till the cows come home, without mucking up all the show/review threads. Makes sense to me. How about it oh mighty Vhlinks gods?

    It could be in the same section as the "Val Is Innocent" and "Gary Isn't Really Light In The Loafers" threads...

    Wouldn't work. You'd have all the Wolf bashers in there having their fun but you'd still get the Wolf defenders in there defending the kid. It would be one big shit storm that would accomplish nothing but fights and bullshit.

    How 'bout a whole new site for folks that want everything done in a fashion that serves their own interest/opinions?

    Wrong. It would accomplishing keeping all that in it's own forum. People could bitch about wolfie or defend him to their heart's content without doing that in the 2007/2008 tour thread. It would compartamentalize the shitstorm, and that would be a beautiful thing. Cause it doesn't really belong in the 2008 tour forum.

    Cause mikey has nothing to do with the current tour.

    Mods- How about just cancelling all posts pertaining to Wolfie vs Mike and Dave vs Sam. These are topics that just encourage posts that are quite frankly beneath us and don't encourage thoughtful insight! ;o)
    Ed: Actually, the last record I bought was by a band called Brand X
    Al: I make my living by viciously attacking something
    Mike: ...actually I don't drink.
    Sammy: Are these yours Eddie?
    Dave: Look at that ankle - dirty girl!

    No, Mike is not involved in any way in this tour. And yes, it will have everything to do with show reviews during this tour. To draw comparisons between the two will be obvious.

    I've seen several positive comments regarding Wolf in reviews, as well.

    And you think people would adhere to keeping their comments in one forum? Not a chance.

    If people are that hard up to shit on a 16 year old time and again then they're going to do it throughout the boards. They don't give a shit about which forum or thread they're in.

    I think this is something best left to the suits to decide. But yeah, either way the crap is gonna spill, in any thread in any forum.

    Face it folks, even on the 2004 tour, Mike was not there because Ed wanted him there, it was only because of Sammy. There's been bad blood between Ed and Mike (on Ed's side anyway) for a good while, if not for Sammy, there would have been another Bass Player back then, with even less right to be on that stage than Wolf does now.

    And since this thread is not in the 'VHLinks Feedback & Questions" section, isn't it in and of itself merely a continuance of the problem?

    Regardless of location, I thought that went without saying.

    Oh and Dave had nothing to do with VH's last 21 years of tours, but that didn't stop people from talking about him. Your rationale doesn't make much sense man.

    Wolf isn't important enough to start a forum about, positive or negative.
