    Just a thought, but how about a "Sports" section alongside the Sub-Forums : Community Discussion...? A lot of sports fans on here, makes sense to put it all under one forum instead of having the community discussion flooded with different football game threads as it is a frequent subject of interest...?

    Just my two cents :)

    And a TV sub-forum and a movie sub-forum and a waloshin sub-forum. :eek:

    I think there was a sports sub-forum along with music etc but those were combined into one massive, nowadays called the community discussion. It wasn't that long ago, only few months. However, I don't think there is need for extra sub-forums, there are already quite many of them. Sports threads are usually huge like that NHL thread so why would there be a need for a new forum with couple threads?

    You're right about the old Music sub-forum, but to the best of my knowledge we've never had a dedicated one for Sport here. I've been a frequent poster in the various Football threads over the years, and they've always resided in the main Community forum.

    This has come up several times before. IIRC the reasoning is that there isn't enough sport-specific discussion to merit a new subforum.
