You must speak only in questions, and must speak only about the oilers. Should i bold it in the first post of the thread?

It starts at 5, does anyone know why they did 2 PPV games in a row?

Did you not break the rule here? Or are there exceptions for thread starters?

Aren't the PPV games just the left over games that no network station picked up?

Is that what Craig Simpson thinks about his PP plan?

Is it breaking the rules when i ended it with a question?

Who gets the money from PPV games? The oilers or your tv provider, or a bit of both?

So, in theory, we could give a full dissertation, but as long as we ended in a question, it would be okay?

Would anybody on this forum really be qualified to answer that without speculation?

It's done that way in the lounge? Then I guess it's okay to do it here, wouldn't you agree?

Weren't we getting some good discussion going before the whole question and PPV tangents?

Isn't questioning the perennial psuedo rebuild, a valid concern for Oiler fans?

Does anyone else think there are too many question marks in this thread?

Why does every thread on the Oilers board lately turn into a *****fest? Have we spent so much time together that all of our cycles are now the same?

What do you think? Seems to me if you change your tone at the end of a sentance to make it sound like a question, it might just fly - no? Obviously I don't know for sure, do I?

Weren't we?

I think so, right?

how can you have to many question marks? I have always operating under the "no question is a stupid questions mantra, am I not right do think this way? If so, the more question marks the marrier don't you think?

I think I ended my dissertation with a question: "Who the F cares?" Or maybe it was the committee that read my dissertation that said that?
