    I proposed this in Jc comunity and was told to bring it here. I believe that many people agree with me in this.

    No, we don't need a sports forum. Individual threads within the JCC are just fine.

    No, we do not need a sports forum. Say it with me now...

    THIS IS A STAR WARS BOARD!

    We have way too many non-SW forums as it is.

    The fact that this is a Star Wars message board is irrelevant to the issue (to me). This is a large community, and people have a variety of interests beyond Star Wars itself. However, the fact of the matter is that the JCC works fine as a place to discuss sports.

    If the sports discussions here aren't good enough for you, go to:

    I wonder if people at a sports message board ever petition for a Star Wars forum... :confused:

    No need to yell. It just seemed that more and more sports threads are popping up.

    Not that I've seen, but even if there were, it would hardly be in the amount to create a new forum.

    Once again, the monster named Low Tolerance For The Ideas of Others rears it's ugly head.

    It's not low tolerance for the ideas of others, it's low tolerance for ideas that wouldn't work. We do not need a forum specifically dedicated to sports. I'm against the idea of the Senate and Amphitheatre to an extent for the same reason that I'm against this idea, and that is that they're all community-building activities, and should consequently be in the JCC. I think the only reason the other two forums exist is because the JCC was getting too overcrowded with topics of those natures. There isn't an overabundance of sports topics, so there is no need for a sports-specific forum.
