Welcome to today's open thread, where /r/nfl users can discuss anything they wish not related directly to the NFL.

Want to talk about personal life? Cool things about your fandom? Whatever happens to be dominating today's news cycle? Do you have something to talk about that didn't warrant it's own thread? This is the place for it!


Remember, that there are other subreddits that may be a good fit for what you want to post - every day all day!

Three weeks ago, we posted a Cream Sukajan Dragon Bomber Soda Velvet Jacket Japanese Giesha Souvenir Reversible Quilted Embroidery Pink Japanese Tiger Dragon Vintage ATqZUZ for you to express how you felt things were going. After reading through both repeatedly, this is the general direction we felt people wanted to see this sub guided in going forward.

Reddit has gone through quite a few changes over the years. From defaults, to political epicenters, to redesigns, to mere tone, the entire website has grown vastly in size and function. One thing that always seems inherent is that unless moderating is guided, subreddits eventually decline into purely about memes or politics. Now, there is nothing wrong with either of those two things, but it becomes the major clashes of how users want subreddits to be managed and how participation is wanted from the users. There is no secret that the biggest concerns are whether we have too many or too few shitposts, and whether we allow too much or not enough politics. These are the conflicts that we weigh in our decisions on how to carry this sub forward. Among a million others.

Therefore, we won't and don't approach these subjects lightly. We want /r/NFL to be a place where you can come and enjoy your time here no matter who you root for in the league. We don't want to be an epicenter of culture wars, and we don't want to cast out anyone who wants to discuss the league at any level, be it high effort or low. The ends to which that are achieved are and likely always will be a work in progress, however. Let's go to specifics.

Our current politics rules seem to work very well:

  1. All actions from players, teams, and the league are approved.
  2. All statements from the league are approved.
  3. Player statements are on a case-by-case basis, largely driven by their impactfulness and their thoughtfulness, but not by their side of the argument
  4. Outside opinions and actions from people and entities not part of the NFL are not allowed except when it makes an impact on how the league functions.

The question of what is and isn't an acceptable shitpost has hounded us forever and is the most wide-ranging opinion on this sub, likely. Some want us to hardline even more, some want us to become more like /r/NBA, and everywhere in between. One thing we found in the fireside is that people want the season to be kept pretty well managed to keep discussion about the sport in general. We will work harder to contain under/overrated [player/team/game/play] posts from happening daily, along with other questions that are repetitive of that nature.

We will also be having a discussion over the season on what we want to off season to look like, where there was more hope for opening the doors to discussion when things get slowest. We got carried through it this season by political hullabaloo (yay?), but this sub can get slower during the long off season and we are tentatively going to explore how to alter things over that period beyond our usual scheduled series. Nothing is in stone yet, but feel to make suggestions and we'll approach it again during the season.

After a preseason of allowing all highlights, we're going to be returning to the system we ran last year. The highlight thread will be where highlights belong outside of the major plays. All highlights need to be tagged with [highlight] if they're outside the highlight thread. When reddit integrates its sorting by subject system that is in the works, we'll be adjusting this (and much more, likely) to allow for the sorting system. The system we ran with last season had the most appreciation in the fireside chat and gives a good balance between allowing major plays and calls to have their own threads while not crowding the front page from news and game threads.

This only applies when there are multiple games on at the same time. Thursday, Sunday, and Monday Night Football will all be allowed as individual posts in the sub without the hub.

A new rule this year, as determined by the fireside, is that you want the game in the highlight tag. Therefore, if you want to post a highlight outside the highlight thread, it needs to be have [highlight] and also [TeamvTeam] in some manner. We won't currently have conventions for how you title the teams as long as they're actual teams and not super long (ie don't do full city plus team name).

Additionally, twitter highlights are not allowed, as they often don't work for people and create needs to secondary sources, anyway. These can be reported and will be removed.

Starting now, all tweets need to be tagged with [Author] at the start. This gives people the ability to know who is saying what more easily. Then copy the body of the tweet for the rest of the title. This opens up readability for users, especially those who have twitter blocked at work.

From here, weigh in on whatever you wish. How are we screwing everything up? How are we succeeding? Should we ban everyone who suggests ranch with wings? The floor is open and we want your feedback.

The Vikings and the NFL were given an extension yesterday opposing Cousins filing a trademark application so he can sell hats, t-shirts, etc. with the phrase "YOU VIKE THAT"

Frankly, I think it's distracting, useless and not nearly as seamless as the ALREADY EXISTING YELLOW LINE. Can someone please clarify as to why we need another graphic on the screen? Apologies if this has already been debated to death.

This is including playoffs. Since the start of the 2016 season, the Falcons have averaged 28.9 PPG and 393.4 YPG when playing any team other than Philadelphia. When playing the Eagles, that drops to 294.3 YPG and 12.3 PPG.

There is a reason I did not expect us to win last night: The Eagles defense matches up very well against the Falcons offense. I'll be interested to see how things go for Atlanta going forward, but I do not think you can honestly say what we saw out of Atlanta last night is what we can expect this season.

This is an absolute stunner. A red 1940s halter, fit and flare, party, cocktail or dancing dress.







It's in a reddish/orange taffeta like material. It has a gold lame detail at the waist and a crisscross feature at the neck that creates a halter look in the front and a keyhole at the back. It has a very wide sweep at the bottom and zips up the side with a metal zipper that works well and goes up and down easily.







This one is a real stunner on and presents beautifully. The hem swings beautifully and the way it wraps about the neck hold the girls in well, which is something I usually have a problem with in a halter dress.







The label reads A Chapman Original. The Chapman being Ceil Chapman and according to my research, the era of the tag is either 1930s or 1940s. I could not determine if it were the earlier 1930s tag as I was unable to find a photo of one and the 1940s tag has US Patent Office info on it, which this does not. https://www.vintagefashionguild.org/label-resource/chapman-ceil/







When I purchased this dress, the seller stated that she thought this was probably a full length gown from the 30s that had been shortened in the 1940s. This is entirely possible. If it was, I don't blame them for holding onto it as it is as I said, a stunner. If there were any hope of it ever fitting me again, I wouldn't sell it. As it is I have held onto it like grim death but I have admitted to myself that it's not going to happen. My loss is your gain on this one ladies.







I would call this good vintage condition. The seams and fabric are strong, even around the neck area. There are some faint dark spots at the hem that may come out with a soaking and one tiny hole in the skirt toward the middle but both the spot and the tiny hole get lost in the folds of the skirt and are only visible on close inspection. After I found the hole, I went to get my camera to take a photo of it and it took several minutes to find it again. There are some small places that look like holes that don't go all the way through the fabric at the keyhole in the back and what looks like some make up or perspiration around the neck on the inside that are not visible when worn but again, I believe these may come out with a good soak. Perhaps some Orvus. There is an excellent article in the Vintage Fashion Guild forum about cleaning vintage. https://www.vintagefashionguild.org/tips-tricks/guide-to-care-cleaning-for-the-vintage-seller/







Measurements are as follows (Taken with the garment laying flat. Please double where appropriate.







Armpit to Armpit 12" A bust measurement on this is difficult due to the way it's made but the gathers fit my full C snugly.



Waist 11" There is very little stretch to this. It will stretch to 12" but I would not reccomend a larger waist than 10.5"



Hips Free



Length 47" Measured from the neck to the hem



Waist to Hem 27" Measure from the bottom of the gold lame







I would estimate this to be a modern small to Extra Small but please go by the measurements and don't forget to leave an inch or so for freedom of movement.







Due to the pre worn, pre loved nature of vintage clothing, there may be slight imperfections due to regular wear. I do not accept returns or exchanges unless an item has a major flaw that was not represented in either the photos or written description but if you should have a problem with your order, please contact me ASAP as I do want you to be happy with your purchase and your overall shopping experience.







I do my best to describe items as accurately as possible and examine things very closely but it is possible to miss something even with very close inspection. I describe items to the best of my ability and there is no warranty given or implied. If you have questions, concerns or require more photos or measurements please send me a message and I will happily send them. I am always happy to help.







Please note that I am only a collector and lover of vintage fashion. I am not an expert and materials or era are merely my best guess based on research and comparing items with other things in my collection. I will never intentionally misrepresent an item.







My most frequent go to is The Vintage Fashion Guild website as it is, in my opinion, the best resource available for lovers of vintage fashion. I am not however a member and am not affiliated with them in any way. It is simply my preferred source for research.







Items are not laundered or dry cleaned before shipping in order to keep costs down, so they will most likely need a soak before wearing. My items are never ironed but are steamed before photographing and if they are excessively wrinkled, I will give them a steam before shipping. All items come from a smoke free but not a pet free home. I do have a very large, very furry Leonberger but the clothes are kept in an area where he has no access to them.
