So, you're a Red Sox fan, ay? Welcome to NYYFans.com. In case you weren't aware, NYY stands for New York Yankees. This site in general, and this game thread forum in specific, is here for the use and enjoyment of Yankee fans. Unlike large fan-run message boards sites for other teams, we don't believe in restricting access to any portion of our site, and welcome Yankee fans and non-Yankee fans alike. In keeping with that mindset, we welcome you to participate in the game threads with all of us Yankee fans.
BUT... please don't forget that this is a YANKEES site for YANKEES FANS. That being said, Yankees fans have a right to expect this forum, and the game threads therein, to be free of people openly rooting against the Yankees, trolling (however subtle it may be), and incitement by fans of other teams.
If you are not a Yankees fan, and you cause any trouble in a game thread, you will have your game thread priveleges revoked (see this thread for more info); but that's only if we believe you contribute to other areas of the forum in a positive way. If you don't add to the forum in general expect to be banned permanently from the entire forum.
The fact that you are not permitted to join, or do not like the people who run, other sites that are geared towards your favorite team is not our problem. This is a site for Yankees fans, and you won't be permitted to post here and continually attack the Yankees or incite our users. As of now you are being held to a higher standard than our Yankee fan community at-large.
We've gone above and beyond reasonable efforts to accomodate non-Yankees fans on this forum. Unfortunately a select few are really beginning to make me regret this; and have begun to ruin it for other non-Yankees fans who are valued members of this community.
