247 wins for three reasons....
1) The guy who owns learned and made his mistake with Rivals... Being his second go round, this was bound to be a better product.
2) Because of #1, 247 hires web programmers who are LIGHT YEARS ahead of Rivals in design... and simplicty. They didn't have to worry about alienating a huge existing user base, which is what Rivals would have to worry about if it tried to copy this layout.
Tech savvy people are always going to be drawn to this layout, it's the best in the business.
3) Mods allow people to expres their opinions, even if the majority of the community disagrees with it. A wider variety of ideas make the community stronger. That you can argue and have a meltdown in one thread...and still maintain a respectful and friendly relationship in other threads... makes this community unique.

To quote the great philosopher Spiderman, "with great power comes great responsibility", and as 247's user base continues to grow, we may see some of the moderating headaches and bickering posters that are currently common place on Rivals.
I really like the 247 I see today, huge fan of the way admins run the site and the way posters conduct themselves. Love the openness on both sides. I hope as the site continues to gain popularity, which it certainly should since it's a great product, the balance stays intact.
We have very similar opinions.
