    Thank You, TideFans

    Perusing the boards and just thought how great it is to be able to congregate with like-minded souls who are so obsessed with the Alabama Crimson Tide that midway through June we are talking passionately about our team and college football. (that was long to not be a run-on sentence)

    Thank you to BamaNation for getting this place started in the right direction and to all my fellow fans for bringing your passion here.

    The summer lull is now bearable.

    There are always in-depth discussions, news, and commentary as insightful as can be found anywhere.

    This really is the best site for TideFans in the whole wide world.
    Roll Tide Roll!!!

    The TideFan formerly known as NationalTitles16, NationalTitles15, NationalTitles14, NationalTitles13, and NationalTitles12.

    This is the place where I learned I didn't know as much about football as I thought I did. Seriously, I have learned more about football on TideFans than in all the years before. This is like home. There is no place like home.

    My fave part is being able to talk without the emotional drama you see on other sites...

    Occasionally some members can get a little horsey, but for the most part everyone is civil. It is the only football site I belong to and the only one I read. A big thanks to Brett and the Mods.

    I think one of the best things about TideFans is how well it's moderated. I appreciate the management of the site. RTR!

    IDK. One, um, "former" member named me the most reviled Tide fan of all time. This was in a thread on another site. I perused the first couple of pages and, wall to wall, they were all lies. Nobody ever got banned for what they said they were banned for. Finally, on about page three, one guy confessed he had told a mod what he could do with himself. I just thought that was refreshing honesty, even if there weren't much of it...

    Re: Thank You, TideFans

    I have always thought that a 'true' Bama fan is friendly..gracious after a win...and is quick to appreciate the breaks we get even knowing that ALL teams of any kind need breaks while consistently competing at a high level. We are typically nice to opposing fans. SOME things have changed of course. So has the world. But we are STILL some of the more sensible fans around in any sport. I grew up watching Paul Bryant and took his words as gospel as a kid. I believe his lessons are worth heeding still today. Most of which....or it seems to me anyway..Coach Saban is giving the college football world a refresher course on how we should be conducting ourselves. Anyway...I am most proud to be a Bama man and a man BORN in Bama....raised in Bama. Too late for me to be different from what I am. Good for you in joining this board. All the moderators here are respectful and so are the posters. It is a great place to ask questions. Someone here can and will help you. Some of the boards around and about are out of hand IMO. This one is fair, even, and respectful. Don't get any better than that my friend! A big ROLL TIDE to you Crimson Brother!!

    Earle, I can say this for sure, you are probably without a doubt the most knowledgeable person on this site as far as Bama football and it's history. I appreciate what you and the mods do for us all. This is a great place for all things Bama. Ready for the season!!!! RTR

    I have been on this site for almost 15 years. All I was trying to do was find out what happened to a former player. 15 years later I am still here, I have enjoyed every minute of it. All of you are like friends and family. Roll Tide!

    Yes. I'm occasionally shocked at how long I have been a very regular reader of Tidefans, probably 20 years. This is a pleasant and comfortable place to talk about one of my favorite things in the world.

    Man, hard to believe how time has passed. Seems like we found this place and never left.
