If you changed certain overused words and phrases into swear words and, thus, not visible to the faint of heart, football forums would be even more unintelligible than they now are. These are words that are so over used that they have become, essentially, meaningless.

Words that would cause the collapse of the football posting world:

Solid (my favorite - as opposed to gaseous? Also used by bad sports writers)
Overrated (the de facto short hand for "I don't like him")
Underrated (same as above except "I like him")
Overpaid (rarely does one ever see "Underpaid")
Resigned (not in the correct way - quitting - but as an attempt to type “Re-signed”).
Sucks (or the less literate "Sux")
Bust (unless talking about parts of Jessica Alba)

From other Falcon sites:
Vick
Brooking (What will the one pump chumps do now that he is gone - become Cowboys fans so they can hate him there?)

Words or phrases that should be encouraged:
"Vegan Jesus" - that made be actually laugh out loud.

Finally, to those who think it is funny to try and use all of the overused words in a post, I will take a play out of another Falcon Fan website and question your manhood. :lol:

Please feel free to add to the over- and underutilized phrases from the boards.

Yes, I am bored.
