First Mike Waters, next Bronco Mendenhall?

Beware the man who believes in something more important than the masses.

I sent signals. Bronco is sending signals.

I have plans. Bronco has plans.

You are gone for 3 years and suddenly alight on my doorstep. This can't be a coincidence.

And I will let you in the door, unlike your mother-in-law.

I've lurked fairly regularly in that three years!

And the story about you and my Mother-in-Law always gets laughs...

Forget about the other board. This is about this board.

People already do trust you or they wouldn't have given you their time and money and identities over the years. But any successful leader asks for input from his followers before deciding which path to forge. He evaluates the input and decides what to incorporate and what to dismiss.

But I suppose it all comes back to your goal for the board. And only you know what that is.

Are you trying to help other people here, or are you trying to help yourself?

If it's for you, then have the guts to use first person pronouns.

"I want to know what you are doing so I can make a decision."

Rely on your inner compass, all of you. Look at my avatar. John Locke, on Lost. The ultimate "inner compass" character on TV right now.

Anyone that knows me well, it would be obvious what I want to do.

At this point the question may be whether you know you.

I made my decision yesterday. There is no hidden meaning in my message.

I try only to offer you whatever meager advice I may have. I will desist.

If you wish to play the Lone Ranger, so be it, but honestly Arch is awfully longwinded for a Tonto.

Friends can have disagreements. You will always hold a special place in my heart. However when you respond to my posts with dipshit and other things like that, it doesnt make me want to continue being your friend. Especially when you have no idea what you are talking about. Maybe we can be friends in just the forums not related to sports. Because when you step in to the sports forums you are in way over your head.

Your advice is noted.

I stand by what I said.

I'm disappointed about your final jab here. But that's ok.

No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Mammon.
