Americans worship at the First Church of March Madness

Americans do not give up March Madness for Lent. Their worship of college basketball intensfies as the NCAA’s tournament proceeds as though it followed a church calendar. To the faithful, the bracket resembles the Creed.

Arenas and stadiums interrupt the modern landscape. They have replaced cathedrals as civilization’s centers. Boosters produce studies that attest to the economic impact of sports. March Madness may have surpassed the World Series in national interest. It trails only the Super Bowl. Punters who do not pay attention to the regular season pick winners and losers in the tournament. Catherine of Siena is said to have subsisted on the host; fans subsist on wings in hot sauce.

Fayetteville State by choice. Bronco by the Grace of GOD.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.


As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
