I just wanted to quickly broach a subject that has come to my attention: politics.
Don’t worry, I’m not discussing a particular issue or current event. What I wanted to know is if there is space for Coogs to (respectfully) talk about politics with other Coogs? And, can Coogfans be that place?
I understand why some may want to avoid it all together on a sports forum, but I think Coogfans can be a great place for Coogs to chat about a range of topics that extend beyond what is happening at our beloved school.
I have been to other college forums that have a place for politics and I’ve seen some great and informative discussions. I have even found other Coogs on other college forums discussing politics and I’d always ask: Why do we have to go elsewhere?
Now, granted, politics can get prickly for some folks, but with a little moderation I think we can start engaging more Coogs to join and be a part of our online community.
I would respectfully encourage the Moderators to consider a place for politics on Coogfans - perhaps a trial run to see how it goes?
