Well it says SteelHeel but I don't believe that to be accurate...I'm fairly sure we have added 2 since him.

FWIW, SteelHeel was #99 earlier this morning (I checked after he was posting last night...), but now #100... So there is some lag in it somewhere... I don't know how, because they all are in a time/date order...

Last night, he was heming and hawing about people waiting so long to tell him about this place... I actually went to check and see "how long is THIS long"? He was the last new member @ 98.

As a programmer, I'll make my best guess.

People are signing up and not clicking the "confirm" link right away... It retains the original sign up time but, doesn't officially add you to the list until you confirm.

Ok, looks like 8:00 is a recap (probably a season recap). Then the two hour finale is at 9:00. I guess this conversation can be continued in the Lost thread because these girls are crying about thread hijacking. :roll: :roll:

I like some of ag's input on things, but at times he just comes off very pizzzed offff. I think that when he takes the time to articulate himself appropriately, his viewpoint can be very spot on..... but when he gets irked, the logic starts ebbing and all I can detect is anger. Just my opinion.

Agreed. His blind hatred of the Rooneys and his "anything short of winning it all is failure" attitude heavily skews his point of view, imo.

I agree. I remember good posts with him and bad ones. But I have to say I remember more good ones then I do the bad ones. He seemed to have broke apart at the seams at the end of last year. In his defense I was pretty aggravated with the 1-4 record down the stretch and I made my displeasure known as well. I have since moved on and I'm sure he has too.

In his defense I was pretty aggravated with the 1-4 record down the stretch and I made my displeasure known as well. I have since moved on and I'm sure he has too.



I think that 1-4 record down the stretch was heartbreaking to us all. I know between the troll infestations, the posturing of some of the "heavies" on Triblive, I was just done. I started posting less and less. NKy, rpmpit and Shawn can attest to the fact that, with me, if I'm not enjoying it, I'm not participating. I'm not saying it has to be all warm fuzzies when discussions ensue, but let's not get personal and let's drop the egos. We're talking about perspective.... banter, debate, argue, if one needs to, but when insults start getting slung and negativity is the only common theme throughout most of the threads, then why bother? Life is too short and has too much drama in itself, to have to bring in cyber-drama with a bunch of faceless people into the mix.

I work in a field where I see the tail end of life, and the view going out is not the same we have right now. When you look at what Patrick Williams is now going through in his life, and the future of his children without their mother.... it not only breaks my heart, but gives me absolute clarity on what is worth getting distressed about, not because we didn't pick up the coveted tackle in this year's draft, or why our OL coach still has his job, or why the Rooneys are backing the league and Goodell. My old man didn't teach me much, but I remember two things from his lips that has served me well:

1) You can only worry about the things you have control over.

2) The most successful people in this world (talking of all-encompassing success, personal, professional, emotional, etc.... you get the picture) are the ones who can not only learn from other peoples mistakes but learn from other people's vantage points.

I'll get off my soap box now.... just had a patient die on me an hour ago. Peace.

I'll get off my soap box now.... just had a patient die on me an hour ago. Peace.

I'm with you on this post brother, I've lost too many in the last 2 years to really give a ratz about what someone else does with their business. I'm just a fan that's it. I either enjoy my time with my board family or I don't it doesn't get any harder that that. Life is too short so the Steelers better win like 4 more Superbowls for me so I can RIP!

I agree. I remember good posts with him and bad ones. But I have to say I remember more good ones then I do the bad ones. He seemed to have broke apart at the seams at the end of last year. In his defense I was pretty aggravated with the 1-4 record down the stretch and I made my displeasure known as well. I have since moved on and I'm sure he has too.



I think that 1-4 record down the stretch was heartbreaking to us all. I know between the troll infestations, the posturing of some of the "heavies" on Triblive, I was just done. I started posting less and less. NKy, rpmpit and Shawn can attest to the fact that, with me, if I'm not enjoying it, I'm not participating. I'm not saying it has to be all warm fuzzies when discussions ensue, but let's not get personal and let's drop the egos. We're talking about perspective.... banter, debate, argue, if one needs to, but when insults start getting slung and negativity is the only common theme throughout most of the threads, then why bother? Life is too short and has too much drama in itself, to have to bring in cyber-drama with a bunch of faceless people into the mix.

I work in a field where I see the tail end of life, and the view going out is not the same we have right now. When you look at what Patrick Williams is now going through in his life, and the future of his children without their mother.... it not only breaks my heart, but gives me absolute clarity on what is worth getting distressed about, not because we didn't pick up the coveted tackle in this year's draft, or why our OL coach still has his job, or why the Rooneys are backing the league and Goodell. My old man didn't teach me much, but I remember two things from his lips that has served me well:

1) You can only worry about the things you have control over.

2) The most successful people in this world (talking of all-encompassing success, personal, professional, emotional, etc.... you get the picture) are the ones who can not only learn from other peoples mistakes but learn from other people's vantage points.

I'll get off my soap box now.... just had a patient die on me an hour ago. Peace.

Outstanding post and I wholeheartedly agree. I don't get trolls at all. They somehow get kicks in stirring crap up. Why? I've seen it said before: That is a sad way to go through life. You only hope they just do it as a "faceless" person, as you say. But even then, why bother.
