That's it for me, goodnight everybody!
Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
That's it for me, goodnight everybody!
THEY'RE RUNNING OUT OF YOU!
What's the difference? You're their all time best seller!
Well I had sex with your wife!
his wife's in a coma
Wait.... YES! That's what I should have said!!!
You're through Riley! You just screwed yourself!!!
(I had to finish it, that's one of my all time favorite episodes)
One of my all time favorites too without question. I really think someone should start a Friday night Seinfeld open thread sometime. That would make me a happy man.
No matter how many times they play Seinfeld, I'll continue to tune in from time to time. That was probably one of my favorite episodes along with the two Michigan Bottle Deposit episodes.
WE'RE PULLING IN FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS A MAN!
But I nautilus of course
I was flipping through the channels the other day and I stumbled upon a Sienfeld episode that I never saw before. 9 years as a series and a decade of syndication after that and I find an episode I never saw before. It was like finding money in an old coat pocket.
I suspended all knowledge of future events and watched it like it was 1995 and brand new.
Could've had a cool nickname like T-Bone, but instead now we will refer to RDT as Koko.
Considering I didn't know there was a kerfuffle, I accept your apology for a non-issue and wish you the best in your online ways.
On the one hand I thought: who cares what a bunch of nameless, faceless, internet goofs think? If you have information, let 'er rip. If you're wrong, well we all get stuff wrong sometimes.
Then on the other hand I thought: You're right, this is a community. If we all didn't give a crap our community would turn into RCMB, or those godless heathens who spew propoganda for Ohio. I respect your respect for our community.
ROLL TIDE. Except on September 1, 2012.
An aside.. my brother-in-law's Dad played ball for 'Bama back in the day, so I adopted the Tide awhile ago. Yeah, I know.... cool story brah.
Speaking of roll tide, I love that ESPN commercial where all those people say "Roll Tide" in various situations. I started using the phrase on spring break at every gas station/rest stop we stopped at as we drove through Alabama. Most of the time I got a return "Roll Tide." Not sure why I enjoyed it so much, but it just seemed to be the thing to do. I'm sure half the people figured I was making fun of them.
Great commercial. Would have been better with GO BLUE though, of course.
Just take off the houndstooth hat and put this leather winged helmet on, my friend... It's that easy... Go... Blue...
Did we quit when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no! Have the Spirit of Blutarsky. Don't let the bastards grind you down.
Maybe you can take Aquaman's contract...
I have seen his recruiting updates referenced on other sites, and they seem to have gone a long way in convincing more than a few people that Ty Isaac is in the bag for the Blue.
While I don't think it warrants shutting down the updates, I can understand why RDT is afraid of the possible backlash. Ty Isaac still seems a good deal away from a Michigan commitment, if it ever comes. And if it doesn't come, he would be breaking some hearts.
Ahh fuck 'em. That's what I say. It hasn't worked very well for me in the past, but hey, it might work for you since you actually contribute to the board and are well liked by the mgoblog community.
don't let idiots get in your way.
I enjoy your updates moreso for the SEC point of view, than the nuts and bolts of the information. I do not post very often but I have been coming to the site long enough to know a good poster when I see one. Its not like you are pulling your info from thin air, your updates appear to be thought out and have the requisite caveats to help you avoid any persecution. I for one hope you keep us in the Southern loop. Anyone who complains later can go f@#k a goat.
I am not well versed on your updates, but they couldn't have been worse than the Blockhams.
These things happen. I totally understand your motivation and hope you still contribute. Thanks for the work you put in, it was much appreciated.
Nick Saban would never apologize, so why should you?
I don't know that what I'm about to say is much different than what many have already said but seriously, I always enjoyed your posts. There's a lot of pissing and moaning from time to time, but you're one of the few posters from an enemy camp that was always respectful and seemed to truly have his ear to the ground. I don't know where the backlash is coming from or to what level, but I hope you brush it aside and continue on. If not, it's been a joy reading your material.
Keep posting RDT, you are a thoughful and informative contributor.
1. Its the internet, don't let e-backlash bother you.
2. Grow a pair.
Magnus gets hated on every time he posts about a recruit but we still love him and he keeps coming back(he might be a masochist but don't let that stop you).
Magnus fills that void with dougnuts and the possibility of more doughnuts to come.
It's a blog!
While I support your decision... I mean, shit, there's no reason that your posting here should be a source of significant stress in your life, and if it is, the simple solution is to stop posting... but, I would also say that if others are citing your posts on this board and something turns out to be wrong, that's more on them than it's on you. I mean, come on, they're referencing an anonymous post on an electronic bulletin board fergodsake's... how reliable can you expect that kind of information to be?
Then again, if the issue is that your posts are negatively affecting your relationships with your sources... then I can see where you're coming from, and by all means do what you have to do!
You can't go! All the plants are going to die!
Who cares what a few people think RDT, no one is right all the time. If you ever get to the Party Room or BKFinest level then I'd be worried. You're still very much appreciated on this board by 90% of us. There's a lot of negative people on here who are quick to love you one day then slit your throat the next.
Haha, you got us, nice April Fools joke. Now keep up the strong work RDT.
Thanks for the updates, RDT. As it is with most recruiting notes, I think if taken at face value, they're very interesting. However, some people will take whatever they read, extrapolate and start a whole shitshow out of an innocuous comment.
Thanks for coming by. Hope you stick around through the Jerrydome showdown and beyond.
Thank you for your contributions regarding recruiting.
Look forward to seeing you around in other capacities. I will miss the recruiting tidbits though.
Screw those folks who gave you crap. However, I enjoyed your updates and you need to do what's best for you and your well being.
You were doing something that you enjoyed, added value to the community, was well-written and well-received. Now, because some "douche bags" aren't doing their homework but instead publishing opinion as fact, we all lose. But mostly you, because it appeared to be a passion and a nice connection to this board and to a fanbase outside of Alabama.
This just pisses me off. Sad for you, sad for us and pissed at the blow-hards who believe everything they read on the internet. I'm glad you'll still be around but I'll miss your updates. Roll Damn Tide!
If you go, what will I do with my speculative photoshop?
Just keep posting under an alias...like "War Eagle." Then Auburn can be blamed for any info that doesn't pan out :)
Roll on RDT!
I really enjoy your posts. Please continue.
I have always enjoyed your updates. Certainly you are one of the most gracious and reliable opposing fans I have seen on this site. I can empathize with your feelings. I had a rock-solid "Brian Approved" source that I have known over 10 years lead me completely wrong 3 times. The fact is, some 18 yo kids will be more than haphazardly fickle and even their own parents and coaches can't predict what they will do and say next. We always respect your efforts and appreciate the info you have.
This makes me sad... very sad
There is no good thing in the world that "people" won't F*ck up instantly.
Sad, but not at all surprising.
I love your posts!!! Fuck everyone's thoughts. If you are happy with what you put out there then that's all that matters!!! I enjoy ALL if your posts!!!! Keep them coming PLEASE
RDT, you are posting on a blog. Also, no one knows your real name. Are you really so thin skinned that if someone says that someone with the handle Roll Damn Tide was wrong with a recruiting update that it will seriously have an effect on you? Just enjoy providing information as long as the intentions are good. No one should take recruiting too seriously, as we all have seen how the minds of 17-18 year old kids work. Just keep posting and enjoy both the praise and criticism that comes with it.
If you don't want to post your updates anymore, email them to Brian. Brian takes all kinds of info and anonymously distributes what he thinks is verified. That way we could still hear what you're hearing, if Brian deems it credible. He'd protect whatever sources you have too.
I really enjoyed the extra updates but i understand the insanity of internet backlash. Hopefully you change your mind at some point and feed out football recruiting adiction.
