Following from the earlier discussion regarding modding of this site, since it's a serious subject.

"Whatever man. We need a badass like yourself to take control of this chat."

Someone call for a badass? I'm pretty sure everybody across the site by now knows I won't tolerate people being dickheads. But in saying that, you need to realise something RealFan. This website is somebody's BUSINESS. That means mods are given criteria to follow, one of those is that banning is a last resort. We do everything we can to reform somebody first, how do you expect a site to grow if you ban 9 out of 10 users that create an account? Do you know how many new accounts are created per day? About 25. Do you know how many of those new users actually post on the forums? 1 or 2 if we're lucky. Without users on the forums, this site is dead in the water and we're always aware of that. That doesn't mean that we tolerate idiots cos some people definitely deserve a ban, it just means that we follow our mantra handed down from Lee and Araz, to do our best to ensure as many new contributing members to the forums as possible. That involves some toleration of new members who might need a hard kick to get them in line and familiar with the do's and dont's of the site. I'd rather give them that probation period to bed in, rather than boot a potentially good member.

A little education can do wonders on some people. I haven't seen Dhockey troll since first joining the site so I say let bygones be bygones. Some of you may remember a few years ago, a MASSIVE rivalry between myself and Snitch aka Martinify. After a long saga of despising each other, we are now friends, because we simply manned up and got the f**k over it, admitting our past pettiness.

MY 1st POST I ever made after joining the site was to tell a Liverpool fan named Jawn(didn't know he was a mod!) to BUGGER OFF from the Arsenal page while people were lamenting a loss and he wasn't being very compassionate. The warning from him is still there, on page 1 of my comment wall. Do you think I'm an ok user? Or do you feel that Jawn should've simply banned my ass straight off the bat for the one and only comment I've ever had deleted on this site?

Now I'll also add, if anybody suspects another user of being someone on a second account, let me know on my wall and I will check for you, because this is helpful to us. I caught and banned Ekoj pretty fast didn't I?

Any queries, bring it on. Shoot straight, no decor, you'll only get an honest response from me. Ask here or on my wall, I don't mind. I'm used to flak headed my way, I've taken up the enforcer post on this site.

And the reason why there's no "Madrid mod" as you call it(we are mods of every page actually, not 1 team, hence the "footytube staff" next to my name), is because there's no suitable candidate just yet. We have 2 in mind but it is not time yet. We are already bringing in 3 new mods who will be active across multiple pages.

Btw read the Status Appeals pages if you think we're too soft, you might get a shock. Ratboi is now banned on sight just so you know(I don't even fill out a ban report anymore, I just click) and as for how many users I've personally banned? Mate that could take awhile to mention.

You will always have differing opinions regarding the moderator role and who one feels has the capacity to actively and responsibly carry out their respective moderator duties.

For example, while I've read valid claims from both you and Realfan on what is and isn't appropriate, there are also areas I don't particularly agree with. I have a completely different viewpoint in mind.

There is a way to lessen the risk associated with electing a new moderator, and damage can be controlled if the right policy is implemented. I could go into detail about it, but I think you already have an idea of what I have in mind.
I do and I agree only in part with said system. Personally I am much more interested in revamping the site guidelines and creating a new disciplinary model that is fair across the board and more themed to the site also.
Apparently Ronaldo has never scored at Anfield...
That won't last much longer
+1
Madrid has never won at Anfield either...this is chance to break that streak and to light it up, I am sure the boyz are pumped as hell for this match!!!
+1
This could potentially be embarrassing for Liverpool. They better step up to the occasion... a battering would mean self-belief would be shot for the rest of year as far as the CL is concerned.
anything could happen, Madrid haven't beaten L'Pool at anfield, RM will want revenge
L'Pool will press Madrid in the opening minutes
both teams ain't the greatest at defending, there'll be plenty of goals
I kinda have a feeling our guys have they're minds set on El Clasico already,just like us fans. We might see Carlo rotate a bit even thou Bale and Ramos(probably) are already out of the clash. I'm excited for the game,but still my main hope is that we rest as much players as we can for the Clasico.

On the other hand you have a struggling Liverpool that is desperate for a lift in confidence. I think they are going to play this game like it's a CL finale,and not to mention that Anfild has waited a long time for a big opponent in the CL. So when you take all this into account, I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss them.
While I'm not as optimistic as some of the Madridista's, I would like to point out that Real Madrid's record at Anfield isn't very telling. After all, they've only played in that venue on one occasion if I'm not mistaken, making it a statistically irrelevant figure.
i dont think we will win comfortably... thats if we manage to win the game at all in England... at home i believe we can get our Revenge but the champions league is the champions league and most times teams that arent donig too well domestically bring their A game to CL.... take dortmund as an example
While I would like nothing more than to see Real Madrid make their presence felt in England, there are more pressing matters that should be addressed.

Should Real Madrid falter in Merseyside, they are still likely to progress through to the next round. Silencing Barcelona will prove to be a significant event as it would lessen the gap between the two clubs to a single point. Losing to Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu means a 7 point gap and demoralization with it.

This is not to say Liverpool should be underestimated. I haven't paid attention to them this season, but from what I gather, they still have a very potent attack force.

If Real Madrid are to score the first goal at Anfield, a more conservative tactic should be implemented to reserve energy and prevent possible injuries.

Real Madrid shouldn't look to control the game. They should focus more so on controlling Liverpool. The latter isn't necessarily the same as the former. To control the game would implicate a method relying heavily on possession, ball retention, etc. By controlling Liverpool I'm referring to forcing them into a state of sterile possession. Close down their passing lanes, frustrate their designated goal-scorers, neutralize their off-the-ball movement in dangerous areas, and prepare for transitions in order to make the most out of dispossessions.

Who knows, if the team is doing a good job, they can get an insurance goal, and that would be huge during the rest of the night.
WTF is wrong with BALE?? Guy plays in and out for us, goes off to ntnl team and comes back unavl for us in UCL and League. Is this pay-back for CDR and UCL??
he's always been a bit injury prone. he's fast as hell and has crazy stamina, always bombing up and down the flank, putting a lot of tension and strain on his body with his explosive and surging runs..so he's been plagued with muscle injuries every now and then.
Bale is ruled out of the Liverpool match and probably out of Clasico as well. I don't mind him not playing against Liverpool, but it's a huge loss for us in the Clasico. Also add to that list Ramos,who is still doubtful for both matches. At least we're covered good in his position with Pepe and Varane. On the other hand,we're probably use James as a winger instead of Bale. Without Bale,our counterattack doesn't look that scary against Barca.
This is no bueno. Bale is needed to free up defenders usually committed to ronaldo
I would disagree with this. I think defensive effort would be imp in this game and bale hardly tracks back. Isco and james are a better fit. Just my opinion.

I might be biased since i dont like bale's game
+2
Ffs man.. Why does this kinda stuff always happen in big games? ...

edit: well, looks like Isco will get his chance against Liverppol AND Barcelona.
+1
Yup this is a pretty good chance for Isco to solidify more minutes and show that on the big stage he can make a difference.
Call me whatever you want but I'm actually more scared of Isco than I am of Bale. I'm not saying Isco is better but I would rather have Bale on the wing than Isco face us in the middle.
Our midfielders performance in the classico will make or break us and while,id like to agree with you sanchez( for me isco is like your iniesta, the x factor) bale has torn barca up before and poses a great threat to your defense with his pace
+1
could Jese feature in the classico
or is he injured
No Jese is still about a month away from getting back into the side.
relax look at Arsenal's injury list and no one will complain lol
Pretty much sums it up :p

i think neymar has started to live up to his hype at barca and brazil.

of course bale has won much more since joining in madrid
Someone's got a little obsession with Barcelona lately.. :p

Inferiority complex?
+8
I think neymar has been good, it isnt his fault people framed him to be messi's heir or pele's(only the first title is important).

However i have been happily suprised with how much bale has delivered for us in his short time here
Right now Bale is in his prime where as Neymar is still learning his footballing ABC's. In a few years, Neymar will become the best player in the world...just watch...
@st1or

yeah thats what it is

@realfan

its just warm up for el classico lol... im sure neymar might win a balon d'or or two before his 30's...

that is... whenever ronaldo and messi decide to slow down...
+1
Callejon..Calle-freakin-jon...! boy i miss this guy. Scored both goals in the tie with Inter. :')
+2
Its unfair that the guy never got called up to Spain, his a quality winger/forward. He should be getting called up.
He is actually in. Great great form... Id give him a chance in the national team... In his form lately he could definitively play over pedro or navas (who dont play much for spain)
Points in last 22 rounds in La Liga:
1. Sevilla 50
2. Barça 49
3. Atlético 47
4. Real Madrid 45

didnt think emery would such an amazing job.
always liked him. any thoughts?
+3
I've had something on my mind regarding the whole 'the Madrid chat needs a mod of its own'

When Matt and Lee first made this site they picked users like Tony, Ben, Zach, Jereon, Raj to be the mods of this site (of course there were more but I can't remember them all...) Anyways, not only were they respected by everyone on the site, but everyone knew they didn't tolerate any sort of trolling. They didn't give 'warnings' to trolls, they just put them on status, deleted their comment and made them feel like a horses ass.

When Footytube 2.0 first came, I used to get into all sorts of trouble. I was put on status about 3 times, and was even told to stay away the site for a while...LMAO. Why? Because the mods didn't take crap from anyone. But now-a-days, we have users like Dhockey who did nothing but troll when he first joined this site, and when you tried to report them, the mods say 'he's doing nothing wrong'

Let me tell you a story. There was a user named Rob12 (or something like that) Man, I HATED his guts. He used to harass me, call me a glory hunter, make offensive comments regarding my I.Q. and knowledge about football. When Meebo was around, we used to have heated arguments...he even brought my family into it. Why am I telling you this? Well, if we have users like him become mods no one would troll on any chat. I mean, would someone like Ratboii300024 troll on the Madrid chat if someone like @Slim was a mod? ...we all know Slim wouldn't think twice before deleting his idiotic comments.

The mods ether need to starting being more strict, or we need users like Slim or Rob12 as mods.

Thoughts?
+9
My thoughts: I don't know why you think Dhockey is a troll. Is he on our radar? Certainly... a neutral/Barca fan who posts provocative facts on the Madrid page will always be kept an eye on. My assessment is that in the beginning he DID write some trollish stuff, but he quickly understood where the line is. You really didn't like that early stuff and even assess his later comments through that lens.

Now let's see Dhockey's last few comments here:

"You got a extra day off for liverpool game."
"Lol qpr dominating liverpool. i say play the B team"
"Liverpool game is important too. i dont think these rotations are necessary."
"Modric might be injured. :-( right before the classic too i dont know how serious it is."
"Madrid has the highest avg attendance this season."
"Real madrid - scored most goals in europe (top 5 lgs) barcelona - conceded least goals in europe (top 5 lgs)"

How is any of this remotely close to trolling? On what basis do you want me to punish him, except that you hate him?

Another thing - in the middle you suspected that Dhockey had a second fake account. You know what, so did I, and Zilch, and Kgb and basically every mod who visited this page. That's why we first did a casual check, and then a more rigorous check, and each time we found that these two accounts belong to different people in completely different cities. I thought like you did too that they were the same guy, but as far as we can tell it isn't true! So again, on what basis do we punish this guy?

Now, about someone like "Rob12" being a mod. That's a terrible idea because someone like him would himself troll the s**t out of some page or the other. You yourself said he harrassed you! I don't even understand what the motivation behind this is. (BTW, this is not to say Slim won't be a good mod. I don't think Slim is crazy like the guy you described.)

Finally, about tolerating trolling. I will let other mods speak for themselves, but I have banned about 50 people on the Madrid/Barca pages over 2 years. At one point you say the mods didn't take crap from anyone, but the newer mods do. LOL I'm the guy who dealt with you half the time! And not just you... a lot of people who had trouble but are still here: you/Robbery/Yousif/Franky/Mt/Pedmar/Turk/that-guy-who-was-a-fan-of-both-teams in the recent past and a bunch of people before that. Is that not strict enough for you?
+9
Realfan, I like your suggestion by the way, but I think we all just have to suffer through it. Lol
+2
In summary, NO mod ever banned someone within two days of joining. People were ALWAYS talked to first, then put on status, then banned. You know this, because we extended you the same courtesy. Dhockey had the good sense to pick up on how to behave very quickly, that's why there was no need to put him on status. Instead of wishing for new mods who'd ban him for you, may be the adult thing to do would be to start afresh with the guy?
+5
@Lake Pray tell me who Dhockey really is. No really you don't need to be oblique about it -- if you suspect he's a particular person we can check that very easily.

Anyway, like I said guys, we checked and he is not a duplicate account.
+3
Tanmay, nvm, you actually made a good argument there, so I edited my comment :)
+1
Cool :)
Lets make something straight, because I have a feeling I'm going to get into a lot of trouble. I'm not saying the current mods aren't doing a good job and are a bunch of 'nice guys'

Alright now that's out of the way, lets get down to business.

No, Dhockey is not on my radar. I've been on this site long enough to know users like him won't stay on this site longer than a year. First they troll, then they get their act together and then get they bored and leave the site. Trust me, I've seen about a billion of him.

I clearly remember getting into trouble with you. I remember I got into a heated argument with a user who said Callejon was more important to the team than Kaka. I lost my cool and made it personal. I got put on status and one of the mods said they 'had enough' but I didn't get banned because I was one of two only active members on the Madrid chat (@White being the other) Tony later that day message me and told me what the hell was going on. I told him in wont happen again because I realized how important I was to this site. No one needs to thank me, btw...

Anyways, what my initial point was we need a mod who is a Madridista...lol.
okay i have no idea what i did. lol
+5
No man you won't get into trouble, don't worry. You just expressed your opinion and I'm expressing mine. I sound pissed because I disagree with you vehemently about making former trolls mods lol, but we're just talking.

Point taken about the Madrid mod though, I too agree we need one. Trust me no one would benefit more from it than me, not even you guys! :-)
+1
Lol bro take it easy...its just an online forum ffs lol
+1
ok... but we don't need a mod just becos of Dhockey :)
..or is this about Dhockey?

i think the madrid forum is fine the way it is.. and if an idiot comes to say crap, its a lot easier to feed it back to them and actually more satisfying that way than to get the comments deleted.

but I'm not against banning trolls though
+1
Whatever man. We need a badass like yourself to take control of this chat.
Dnt get it... We play on wednesday while barca play on tuesday and then classico is on a saturday? Wtf? Thats only two days of rest for us...
+2
Meh. I'm not too bothered.
+1
you got a extra day off for liverpool game.
+1
I am.. Were goin to anfield in a champions league match followed by a classico with two days of rest to a team that hasn't conceded once..... It bothers me a little
+1
It would be more ideal if it was on Sunday. I'm sure your team isn't sweating it too much. Just another challenge.
@Dhockey

One is away to liverpool and the other is home to ajax.... And u make it sound like a group match vs ajax and liverpool is more important than a classico
+1
@askepios

Exactly...l when a team plays on wednesday, they are normally required to play only till sunday...anyways, just gotta hope for a solid rotation in the liverpool game then
UNICEF im telling you ;) haha but in all seriousness, send Castilla to take on Liverpool with Ronaldo too. Should be enough
+2
Does anybody have James Rodriguez stats so far for Madrid? His goals and assists in all competitions?
I would have said use a thing called Google, but I'm feeling nice today...lol.

La Liga: 1 goal, 2 assists
Champions League 1 goal
Supercopa 1 goal
UEFA Supercup N/A (lol)

So in total; 12 Appearances, 3 goals and 2 assists.
