My answer is in two parts. These are essentially the only competitive advantages 247 seems to have:
*slightly superior information (this is highly opinion-based), you guys give info how I like to see it, timely and you don't speculate.
*maturity of the community. Let's be honest, a competitor's forums (starts with R, ends with S and has a V in the middle) are full of undisciplined children. These forums are at least somewhat civil and intelligent, a stark contrast from the absurdity of the other sites.
"If you're not having fun, you're doing something wrong."
Honestly, honesty and no lose lipped info without confirmation first.
The Empire Strikes Back Like A GURLEY Man
i am not saying this to brag but i do have access to a ton of info so i can tell when a site is posting something as truth or if they are saying it to get members. this site is by far the most honest site on the net. excellent concept and even better staff. GO DAWGS!
Such a great member of the site!
When I joined the site two years ago, I was subscribed to two other sites as well. Within a week of my membership here, I had already canceled the other two and I have not looked back since.
I can honestly say that you guys are at the top of your field and there is no reason for me to go anywhere else for news on my beloved alma mater.
Good job and keep up the good work!
thanks for the kind words. i enjoy your insight as well. GO DAWGS!
Two things stick out for me:
1. The volume of information is incredible. I can almost always count on seeing a new update every time I'm on this site (which is several times a day).
2. You guys are very customer-friendly.
I love how you interact with the members. I like many, crossed over from tos. The mod over there at times can be a douche and there are times when days go by with no updates and very little if any interaction on the message board.
i'm really just here because of frank's sig pics and downlow's and DC's gifs. and to irritate phdawg, lol.

Yeah, I've been here a little while. I joined right when G came aboard. I remembered liking his articles as the Sports Editor of the Red & Black when I was in school at UGA and decided to give it a shot. Obviously, I like what I'm getting.
I remember a specific thread that we started back in the early days, essentially asking what we wanted the board/site to become, and more importantly, what we didn't want it to be. The most overwhelming response was common courtesy on the board. Essentially, not be called names, degraded or personally attacked for having a difference of opinion from the masses. That is something I believe that we all strive to maintain on this site. G and Rusty have always said that they're merely facilitators of the board- they write stories/give nuggets/post opinions- and we run with it.
I am proud to be a member of the Junkyard and in the 247 family. This site is growing into 'The Big City' but still has that 'Small Town Feel'. That's what I love and keeps me coming back.
Best recruiting and team coverage available hands down!
The dawgbites and recruiting insiders make my day
The new 247 feature which gives access to all the sites was iceing on the cake.
Live in New York and this site makes me feel that Athens, GA is a hop and a skip away.
Quick suggestion, if possible give the community a heads up if you are on Bill King radio for us morning conmuters..
Any chance of a rusty and gentry podcast talking about the dawgs and giving the fans a chance to call in and ask questions?
