First, a welcome to all Broncos fans and fans of other teams who will be visiting this site over the next few months as we head into the 2008 season.  This site, after all, is a Denver Broncos fan site, but that doesn't mean we don't welcome and encourage input from fans of other teams, even those who root of the Raiders, Chagers and Chiefs.  That said, I want to lay down some ground rules for both sides.  Think of this as a guide as to what will keep opposing fans out of trouble and what Broncos fans on this site should expect.

1.  Keep It Business, Never Personal - This is the most important rule.  So important, in fact, I am going to post it twice.  I am all for good natured smack talk about each others team's, players, logos, colors, cheerleaders, cities, etc.  What I do not want to see are personal attacks at specific people on this site, either "friend or foe".  This site was founded on the premise that it would be a safe haven for positive talk and comment about the Broncos and NFL in general.  I want to keep it that way.  Have an opinion, debate, disagree and move on.  DO NOT ATTACK ANYONE ON THIS SITE or you will get banned.  If you want to have flaming wars with other fans there are plenty of message boards that can help you with that.

2.  Keep The Smack Talk In Fan-Posts - The Fan-Post section is for you, the fans.  If you want to come over and talk some trash during the season that's fine, just keep it over here.  Some visitors to the site simply want to talk about the broncos and not get involved with fans from other teams.  They need to be able to have a choice in the matter.  Comments within posts on the Front Page are to remain on-topic.  Use the Fan-Posts to create Smack-Talk posts and comments.  This goes for fans of both sides.  Again, refer to Rule #1.  Personal Attacks in either location will not be tolerated.

Now, that doesn't mean a rival fan cannot comment in a Front Page post.  Feel free.  Just keep it on topic with the post and above the belt.

See, that wasn't so bad!!  I want this site to have fun this season, and I think the interaction between fans provides an excellent opportunity for conversation and debate.  Just try and keep it clean and never, ever, ever let it get personal!  If anyone has any questions or comments about this policy, please email me -- milehighreport@gmail.com
