We also want to remind you of our Gameday Thread guidelines:
- Don’t use gifs or videos in Game Day Threads because it slows down the comment section
- Don’t troll in your comments; create conversation rather than destroying it
- Remember Blazer’s Edge is basically a non-profanity site
- Out of respect to broadcast partners who have paid to carry the game, no mentions of “alternative” (read: illegal) viewing methods are allowed in our threads
That’s all! Have fun tonight, and Go Blazers!
