    Rivals message boards


    0 Not allowed!
    Doe's anyone else remember the old Rivals football message board sites, when every team had their own section.
    It was back in the days when we were battling for promotion with Cardiff and there many an argument about who was the better young player Zamora or Earnshaw, between the fans of each club.

    I still posted back then as Fosters Headband and I do remember two other posters back on that site that also used NSC and they were Britbyte and Seagull on the wing. Any others here now that posted on that site?

      Not much of an argument though, was it?
      "It all ended Hereford United 1, Brighton & Hove Albion 1. We've got dogs on the field, we've got Hereford fans coming across to attack the Brighton players, we've got riot police, we've got stewards, we've got everything here that football shouldn't have. The Brighton players have gone across to their fans, and Albion remain in the football league"

      There's still a network a bit like rivals called FootyMad, so the model must work to some degree...

      The forum is a bit quiet though!

      I quite like the model in theory just seems like some/most teams are almost completely inactive

      Yes he was and I did meet him back in the old Withdean days. He did love to wind up the Cardiff, Orient and Palace fans on their sites.
