Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

Loudest MSG has ever been prob since '94.

Won't be remembered if they don't ship it tonight. Wish I was going but have other commitments.

Replay is actually on NHL network right now, 7 mins left in the 3rd of game 5.

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

I would like to be given an opportunity to show what I can do in MLB Handicapping at some point. Hopefully at some point in the future MicroBob would be gracious enough to allow me to showcase what I believe I am capable of doing.

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

I am not going to lie. And I just ask that you listen to what I say here.

I will be the first to admit that in the past my behavior on this forum has been unacceptable to say the least. I have no grudge towards anybody at all and I have always tried to combine my knowledge of sports along with entertainment for this community, and at times proceeded to break the rules, or borderline break the rules.

I have since sought anger management and can genuinely say I am fully rehabiliated and would request that I be given a final chance to be a positive and contributing member of this forum.

I can assure everyone I have no intentions of stirring up any trouble or breaking any rules of any kind. I wanted to send you a private message Bob but I have not made enough posts yet.

I guess it would now be up to you MicroBob, to allow me to prove what it is I am conveying through my behavior and posting. I am going this far to assure you of my intentions because I realize how it must appear from your perspective and I didn't want there to be a misunderstanding.

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

It actually is not solely up to me but currently I'm not banning you again...yet. Partly because I'm feeling super-duper generous. But don't be surprised if/when it happens because problem-posters are problems, yo.

I might even do it tonight or tomorrow depending on my mood. You are being nice and contrite now but we've kind of heard that song before and you've only been given about 917 different chances on here.

You can post your picks in the "2012 Major League Baseball" thread that other 2+2'ers are using. You may not have your own thread.

There are other forums too, you know. Actually, we all know that you know. You've participated in more forums than most people were even aware existed.

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

IMO If Wiper says yes, then TBAB should be welcomed back. TBAB, is there anything you would like to say to Wiper? Wiper, consider this.

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

tomg - I will certainly consider wiper's input but it is definitely not going to be up to one poster whether tbab is allowed to stay or not. It is not even entirely up to me for that matter.

Right now I'm guessing this won't last very long regardless. The most recent of his MANY chances was not very long ago and he wasn't even close.

If it were one or two bans and then the old, "please give me another chance, I promise I can be better" then that's one thing. But this isn't that at all.

And it's not like we're talking about a poster who offers great contributions to the discussion or is super-helpful to other posters or anything. He's pretty much pure entertainment-value only, right?

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

I believe the rest of this forum disagrees but I really don't want you going back to old posts to try to prove otherwise. For the time being, go ahead and post your awesome 100 unit plays in the 2012 MLB thread. Thanks.

Did you get banned at SBR or something?

This entire forum should be viewed as pretty much pure entertainment value.

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

The highest unit play I ever posted in the 2010 MLB thread which ended 58% with the Giants winning the WS and +440 Units was 25 Units.

I have never posted a 100 Unit play. Everyone is certainly entitled to an opinion however.

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

I was really hoping we could just not hold a grudge, let bygones be bygones, not dwell on the past and just be civilized here and move forward.

I fully understand that this would be my final chance and do appreciate the fact that you havent banned me yet and are allowing me to at least state my case.

Talk to Wiper. Explain to him why he should let bygones be bygones. His voice is important here.

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

The history between Wiper and Myself is a bit complicated. As far as I am concerned there is no reason to hold a grudge between anyone and I am not happy about the way things have been handled in the past.

This is not an appropriate time to point the finger or deflect responsibility but at the same time it would not be right nor fair to say that I am the only one at fault in the entire Tbab/Wiper thing.

Honestly I would just like to forget everything and start fresh. I am willing to be the one to extend the hand and say I would like a new beginning.

Calm banned for life for posting a silly pic yet TBAB being given new life under his 5th alias. Life isn't fair I guess.

I believe in this case all the credit would go to MicroBob who is being a very reasonable man here imo and considering allowing me to stay despite the fact that I have claimed this before and made many mistakes here.

I intend to make him not regret this decision and show him the real tbab and that I am much more than just pure entertainment value.

Cmon guys, we are grown men. What damage has been done aside from some internet squabbling here and there. Lets move on and look forward.

Tom - Suggesting that wiper and tbab chat with each other is a bad idea.
