Can someone paste the parts that just pertain to Lamb & Drummond, or is that against the rules?

Against the rules, but the basics are:
- Ranked Drummond right behind Anthony Davis in terms of the "Freshman" ... says he has the best NBA body
- Lamb has to show he can become a leader on the floor and not defer ... if he improves his strength, shot selection could be a high pick in the draft.

Improve shot selection? Personally, I did not see anything wrong with Jeremy's shot selection last season, unless a running floater that he makes 95% of the time is considered poor shot selection.

Are those "Boneyard" rules or "scout.com" rules?

I see other independent forums posting full Insider articles all the time. I don't think there's anything wrong with it. I can see why scout might not want it happening on their boards.

It has to do with copyright laws. The general rule of thumb I've been told is that you can cut and paste up to 10% of an article in a post. I don't think the Drummond and Lamb parts are more than 10% of the article so if anyone wants to cut and paste those parts I wouldn't object.

What would be the point of having a pay service if people could just copy and paste it everywhere? As dumb as Insider may be, seems like a pretty solid rule to me.

Not knocking the board rule because it is what is and the board is protecting itself, but I frequent other message boards that have way more traffic than this and the previous scout board and insider articles are posted freely on there. I don't think the Feds are taking people down yet.

Who was the one guy on the scout football board who, after some posted a portion of an article, contacted the author to advise him of the injustice and suggest he take action against us? LOL!

Yeah, it's not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but the last thing Tom needs is another lawsuit.

Not a big deal policy wise, as it's pretty easy to pic out the relevant points of almost any article.

It said the most generic things possible about each player. If you have read any scouting reports/ followed the boards fairly closely over the last 6 months you know everything about lamb and drummond that is stated in the article. Drummond is #3 and Lamb is #16

That's mostly true for every one of these supposed "insider" articles ... I just have it for the magazine!

Some articles aren't that great. However, I'm a person that likes details and insider does give more in depth info on many subjects. UConn bball I already have an in depth knowledge of, but there are other things that it informs me about. Also, I split the subscription with others, so that makes it worth it.

ThX intlzncster...I'm a lawyer. As long as I'm around if the board ever needs anything I would be glad to help. Take care.

the only thing worse that i can think of is Pat Summitt sending a 39 page report to the NCAA accusing Geno and the woman's program of recruiting violations which included posters on the boneyard, speficially TonyC - a long time poster and uber-cheerleader for all things related to WCBB.

in case anyone cares or remembers, of all the hoopla and crap Tennessee threw at UCONN, a single secondary violation was all that was confirmed. Apparently one of the staff members at UCONN called ESPN to arrange a tour for Maya Moore, the #1 recruit in her class (a tour that is free, by the way, and one that Maya could have easily done herself, but it was the UCONN staffer who picked up the phone), and it was deemed that the phone call was inappropriate, and therefore a 2ndary violation.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. I'm going to need more details about this, specifically the part about how the BY was included in Summitt's report! That's unbelievably hilarious!:D

I knew about the whole Maya thing, but that is unreal.

well the complaint was hysterical. complaining about former UCONN greats Taurasi and Bird serving as recruiters, those 2 serving as hostesses, the media interviewing recruits and...

• Fans had signs directed at the prospects, clearly aware who would be present.
• Fans gave prospects' parents the signs they had made for their daughters.

and they copied and pasted posts from the boneyard where this was discussed, specifically posts by TonyC about it. they tried to keep it hush hush saying it came from the SEC, but eveyrone knew it came from Summitt.

That's too funny. Sad, but funny.

I just found the pdf online. I literally cracked up when I saw the screenshots.

But, I digress. I can't wait for this season to start!!!
