    Does this mean we can't post the Link itself?

    Yes, you can post a link to anything you'd like. You can even discuss whatever you'd like you just can't repost it verbatim as it was written by someone else.

    What about little snippets of stuff as long as it isn't the entire thing and you provide a link? I know I posted some stuff about the LSU pro day yesterday that wasn't mine but it was only a small % of the entire article.

    Example that I'm talking about from yesterday:

    Found some more good info, a little research pays off. Looks like Randall Gay is a burner in the same class as Devery:

    Ran indoors on AstroTurf. They had the largest attendance ever for a Pro Day. There was somewhere between 75 and 85 people, although no head coaches were present.
    Player Position Gil's comments

    Michael Clayton WR Clayton ran identical 4.54s in the 40. He had a complete workout at the combine.

    Randall Gay DB Gay (5-10 7/8, 185) ran his 40s in 4.33 and 4.36. He had a 39-inch vertical jump, 10-foot-6 long jump, 4.24 in the short shuttle, 11.08 in the long shuttle, 6.78 three-cone drill and did nine strength reps.

    Devery Henderson WR Henderson (5-11¼, 196) ran his 40s in 4.38 and 4.36. He had a 35½-inch vertical jump, 10-foot-3 long jump, 4.27 short shuttle, 11.37 long shuttle and 6.78 three-cone drill.

    Marquise Hill DE Hill (6-6¾, 296) ran his 40s in 5.22 and 5.30. He had 23 strength reps, 30½-inch vertical jump, 9-foot long jump. He did not run any of the shuttles because of a pulled hamstring.

    Chad Lavalais DT Lavalais (6-2¼, 302) ran his 40s in 5.06 and 5.04. He had 25-inch vertical jump, 8-foot-7 long jump, 17 strength reps, ran 4.62 in short shuttle and 7.54 in three-cone drill.

    Stephen Peterman DT Peterman (6-4, 317) ran his 40s in 5.28 and 5.34, and ran the 10 in 1.90. He had a 24-inch vertical, a 7-11 long jump, did 23 reps, a 4.75 short shuttle and a 7.85 three-cone drill.

    Even if you use a snippet from someone elses article, the author/publisher should always be cited.

    cite the source and give a link...and although you probably shouldnt post an entire article, I do sometimes. its illegal...but dont tear off your tag on your pillow case.

    actually, its proper 'netiquette' to post the link and a sample of the page.

    probably... too bad i don't know the source. lol

    If we actually cite who the article is from, can we post the article verbatim?
