Hello all!

My name is Blake and I’m new here. I’m 31 and live in Minnesota.

I’ve checked out a bunch of different Bears message boards and finally decided to land on this one - hope I made the right choice!

I look forward to chopping it up with you guys as this new bears regime takes shape!

Thank you! I see you’re new here too and came from another place. Mind if I ask where you came from? I googled “Chicago bears message board” and just went down the rabbit hole until i finally landed here lol. I’ve probably lurked on every single bears forum known to man at this point lol.

What's up Blake?

Welcome aboard. I've been here for several years. 7 or 8?

I'm in my early forties, been a Bears fan since '85, and am in the Chicago area.

We're a good bunch of people here. The debates, while intense at times, remain respectful and grounded in the discussion of football.

Things don't get personal or weird here. We're just trying to figure out why we can't win a damn Super Bowl more often than once every forty years.

We also don't allow political talk so things stay on topic.

I was on a few different boards for a while, but ended up adopting the Football's Future site as my main go-to. It's cool because the place is enormous, so if you want to get in on a conversation about the new House of the Dragon series (for example), it's really easy to do.

Unfortunately, the Bears sub-forum on that site has become almost comically bad as of late...

Welcome to the Board :toast: Lots of diehard Bears fans here, lots of good talk also on music, food, families, fishing, dogs. I came here after my last Board died after checking out most of them, just liked this one.

Unlike other Boards which shall remain unnamed, people here don't attack you personally nor cuss every other word to get their point across. Lots of disagreements but, hey, we all have our opinions of what the team needs to do. So chime in early and often.

How'd you end up rooting for the Bears, with your kin being Panthers fans, and all? Is it just that you have better taste in football teams than they do? :D

Hello everyone...new here.
Bears fan since 1980.
Looking for a new home since the last one finally died a slow pitiful death.
Hoping this is the new one.
I am looking forward to seeing this iteration of the Bears. It has to be better than what we have seen for the last 10 years.
Got to walk before you run.
Go Bears!
A new Era begins in the NFC North!

Sadly, it does not involve the Bears.... :frustrated:

Hi Shadow, this is a good home.
Lots of enlightened and educated Bears fans on here.

I learn new things about NFL and the bears every day.

There are disagreements, some are more sensitive than others, some are more provocative than others, but we’re all Bears fans and all want the same thing. :thumbsup:
