You have no favorite boards.
There were some questions late last night about the new 247Rumors board, and I'm afraid I pitched it incorrectly on the board without knowing a whole lot about it myself.
View it here-- http://247sports.com/Board/Football-Rumor-Mill-247Rumors-59457
I now have a better idea what it's about and can pass that along to you guys in the hopes that you'll be open-minded about the new board and give it an honest try.
Basically, 247Rumors is designed to be built around behind-the-scenes tidbits on things like recruiting and coaching searches, much like Football Rumor Mill or ESPN.com's Rumors section. It will be information considered credible enough to be passed along but not verified as being dead-solid accurate.
It's entertainment, and kind of a take-it-for-what-it's-worth thing. In other words, everything there won't turn out to be accurate, but it's not just coming out of nowhere.
Where I was wrong is that this board will NOT have posters be the ones spreading rumors (I incorrectly thought that was the case last night). There will be a staff over there that will do their best to moderate and keep the threads centered around topic starters.
Now this will be a small section of 247Sports and different from the team sites like ours. Just don't confuse it with everything else at 247Sports and lump everything together.

You were correct in your original perception. Originally it was designed for posters to start threads, but they decided to kill that idea due to trolls. Now only staff states rumors and posters post on that rumor.
