Booze,,BBQ and the Buds..that's a date

He sure does..but I think he's mad at me.

Might have to throw him a Bingo...all teeth natural.

'Til then Wiski, thanks for the memories... and especially the laughs

Fair thoughts Luke..cheers

Unsure if I'm here to say goodbyes or hang tough

I think the only thing I'd add is it's less an emotion of entitlement but rather sticking up for old friends that,while imperfect clearly,have helped  in small ways get the site on the map in its infancy.

Word of mouth,twitter, we all shilled for it in small and large.

It is that damn fine

But things change,people change..and I respect Alec's decisions to do what's best for his site

I remember in '07 slugging beers with Tiger Williams for an hour at pro am post tourney gala in Kingston

Made the mistake of questioning his allegiance post 70's to one Harold Ballard and he turned to me and growled..."would you turn your back on your friends..I wouldn't"

I agreed..probably for the best.

Still hate Harold though :)

Funny you say...I'm kicking around starting my own webber and in turn helping the boys here unload we miscreants

It's how Alec emerged in the first place..history repeating itself perhaps

More laughs...less serious

What do you think?

It's tough to swallow Shifty...and I agree Phook says bombastic/unreal things all the time..WE know that.

But Mirtle likely doesn't

I don't care much for his smarm,but he doesn't hold a monopoly on that in the Toronto MSM

In fact..it seems to be a prerequisite

Remember the nonsense that went on when H Burgermeister threatened the site many moons ago?

I hate lawyers,but the one thing I know is it must be tough for Alec and Co. to police and must keep them up at night is;

A) Libel

B) personal threats

But I certainly agree,with all respect,that this,would have been smoother if disclosed sooner

Phook,more than any below the byline,has contributed both pertinent ,money out of pocket info and nonsensical comedy simultaneously

No small feat imo.

Agree with most DD..I have always erred on not attacking posters personally for there opinions here on the LEAFS.

It bothers me.

But there has always been internet "fist fights" here... since the beginning

Don't how I feel anymore frankly..a little out of sorts tonight.

Well,I think the point is your replys have helped everybody... understand.

I'm sure you can understand how we might rally behind him without ..knowing.

Besides,Phook brings enough ridicule on himself unintentionally.:)

Yes, I do believe in transparency....and also second chances.

Perhaps a personal apology to the affected person..I don't know.

In the end Alec,it's your site..you have to do what you see best and I respect that.

And I do appreciate you clearing things up tonight

But when the question was thrown out..repeatedly...nobody ever said he "threatened" Mirtle

Did you know that?

Honest answer

Well it seems "new" to many here Cam

I didn't know Phook threatened Mirtle...and I haven't seen you explain "the facts"

Just lots of gobbledeegook frankly

That's different then him threatening say ..me.

Phook walks amongst these giants.

I appreciate the transparency Boss.. but long overdue IMO (unless I missed it)

While I missed most of the summer,I was saddened/shocked to here about the bans..and now permanent?

I have an (old) suggestion...just make a simple link for all things O/T in the margins

Tell us to keep it ALL there...and it would lessen confusion about where to post (but admittedly,I didn't find it THAT hard)

Straight up?..

You needed to say this long ago..if you care about the guys below the bi-lines...and I hope that's still the case.

Oh,and tell Mirtle he has nothing to worry about..Phook would lose :)

This isn't new for us Cam..and I have complimented you many times too.

Its the TONE and the INSULTS

Keon,like Phook is bombastic...they are  mostly tongue in cheek....mostly.

Your tone always suggests SERIOUSNESS...and is often very demeaning

Calling someone "stupid",which you see as harmless,might get you punched out in the real world.

And I seriously doubt you use this tone/approach in it ..nor hopefully your divulged choice of work

I jumped at you for I saw inconstancies in your argument/defence of MLHS...THATS where Keon was right IMO.

Anyway,if this keeps up you WILL be the most "prominent" poster here..mostly talking to newbies.and yourself

You know I go back a lot further than that bud

Don't confuse recent history with that in toto

I stand by my point,as the ONLY thing  I remember being the biggest nuisance/reason for ban was  ad hominem attacks

Carry on,believe what you wish,but Keon WAS right about one thing anyway imo

No Cam..I can assure that you react aggressively/insultingly when someone "attacks" your favourite players or disagrees with you train of thinking.

From there it's downhill...as somehow you confuse an "attack" on a Leaf as a PERSONAL one...but quickly insult the mailman PERSONALLY

That is the definition of ad hominem mon ami

All hail the KING

@Cameron19 @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Reversethecurse13 @The_Polish_Cannon 

Do you own shares Cam? This is your typical spin.

You,like many others get O/T all the time..myself included

It's called community...often a relished asset in online blogospheres

"Regulars" have asked for an O/T link altogether...for years. Don't blame them.

MLHS is disappointing me as,just like many have pointed out,there has been little communication as to the whys and how longs.

I wont waste my breath watching old friends fall any longer

But seriously bud..why YOU haven't been banned for the king of ad hominem attacks is beyond me

A little reality please

I don't know what went down,but there should be some 'slack" for long time patronage.Bob and Jordan have been around since the big bang.

In Phook's case,he's added to the site not just in the comment section but literally humping it down to the MCC and sending back excellent observations that weren't available ANYWHERE else. If it wasn't for him my kids would never have got a chance to spend an afternoon with their idols and get autographs on their jerseys etc.

Add to the fact he's an entertaining LuLu lemon wearing Tractor driving eccentric and that's value added comedy right there

Not my site,but I can I throw my support towards them too.

Was hoping to ramp up the posts now that season's close,but I'll just lurk around til our old buddies come back

Thinking that from some notable absences,I'm not the only one feeling this way.

Manically accurate

But I often wonder why these purporters of truth that do see the the MSM channels often,on the surface at least,seem a bit off the beam

Watched Alex Jones on Pierce Whatshisface /CNN one night and he was a horribly comic buffoon

They don't do  the "movement" any favours...and that in itself is peculiarly interesting.

It simply deters the fence sitters from investigating further...for fear of association/ridicule

Anyway,its a long and winding rabbit hole..but when in doubt of odd world occurances,simply refer to the best litmus test

I stay away from  Pop culture..its all you see and hear.

That's said,the "entertainment biz" is highly instrumental in conditioning the masses in their various mediums..and very orchestrated/controlled

Educating the masses is essential...but awfully difficult as you likely know

So very true..and likely by design

A chicken in every pot has been replaced by a big screen in every home...and the brainwashing is beamed into every household on a nightly basis

That,and the dumbing down of society

Is it a coincidence that every time you reach for a news publication the past decade the focus is on fear,the trivial and especially celebrity?

People need to wake up...and to solve what ails this planet it will take that massive step....and a revolution

Tough to read such a slickster 

I'll give McCown credit though...he's steadfastly maintained Toronto WILL NOT get an NFL franchise in his lifetime

The stadium deal eliminated the biggest bidder trick..and of course the inner workings of the NFL itself were at work

Why would they want change when they control the repressive reserves

Oh,and how did that 40 percent hike of natural gas sit with everybody?
