RDT's Waterloo (with accompanying exile)
uhh..it's like...4 posts down.
Come on man.
I love how you edited that!! LOL
Shhhh don't give away my secret
RDT = epic FAIL
4 posts down... Geez get it right! In other news, did you guys know we used a scholarship ON A LONG SNAPPER!!!!111!???
RIP this thread. We hardly knew ye...
bring the dog inside a while
I used to love RDT...I think someone highjacked his Profile!
It all started going downhill once he changed his picture.
and predicted Ty Isaac to UM, then Poggi to Alabama...and well...THIS!!
Be nice. We like RDT.
Because of our meanness, he will now dissapear like a Cicada and not reappear for 17 years.
Can we do the same with Saban?
don't forget he totally whiffed on the LS commit.
He didn't predict this would happen before he posted it.
I NEVER predicted Poggi to Alabama. If people will recall, I simply said the word around campus was that Bama was favored. Also, if people would go back, I constantly said that poggi's personality and the environment in the south didn't mesh. Someone show me where I said I thought Poggi was going to Alabama. Also, I'm not the only one who missed on Isaac. Most all of the analysts whiffed as well. But of course, whenever I'm wrong, I'm the only one ever remembered for it.
To have sources that know something the rest of us don't. And by that time there were a lot of people saying USC was leading.
And Poggi...who are we supposed to believe? Your guesses, or your sources? I bet if he had gone to Alabama you'd have claimed "see, I told you that everyone down here was saying he's all Bama....(ignore what I said about thinking Michigan made more sense). Can't have it both ways.
I guess the answer is get a hard one actually completely right before you claim you actually know people who know things.
I didn't post on here for about a month when USC took the lead for Isaac. I also told this board before any of the insiders did that Ty was going to make a decision soon, because he was tired of the process. Again, go back and look at what I wrote. Two days later, rivals posted the same thing. On Poggi, I was a firm and consistent poster saying he was going to Michigan. Please, show me where I said Poggi was going to Alabama. I also said that he was a smart kid whom education would play a huge part for him, and it was the deciding factor. I also told this board that David Dawson, and Logan Tuley Tillman would commit on the day they did. I'm sorry I didnt know more, but I only knew about those things because they were also being recruited by Alabama. Forgive me for calling Isaac to Michigan two months ago when everybody else did you, and not posting anything else about it for a month. I tried to post things as much as I could because I like a lot of the people on this board.
People attacking me for being wrong on Isaac is absolutely absurd.
RDT. This is the internet. Nothing is absurd.
(maybe double posting)
There is a very small percentage here who will attack anyone for any excuse they can find. It gets much worse during the offseason months. You've actually been quite fortunate that they hadn't turned on you earlier.
Three points here:
1. I usually just ignore them.
2. They are a very small percentage of the board, but seem large because even one percent of this board is somewhere between twenty and forty people,
3. Need I remind you of an old, southern adage: never roll in the mud with a pig...
But seriously. People call you out because you react like this. I was actually being incredibly sarcastic. I know sometimes that doesn't translate well on the board.
Brady Hoke has just been announced as the head coach!
who's Brady Hoke...what about Jim Harbaugh???
Jim Harbaugh will never come
the plane has crashed into the goddamn mountain!!!!11!1!111!!
Penut Butter Jelly!!!
post a picture of a hot Alabama coed with nice bewbs . . . It may be the only way to placate this group.
Horrifying. Truly horrifying.
Yikes!! You win!
One thing I have to hand to the SEC boys, the women. Gosh, those "Golden Girls" from LSU during the National Championship... I didn't want the television to show the game anymore, I would've watched them for two hours.
Didn't you guys catch the earlier Countess/Women's Academy participant photo and comment massacre? It's gonna get brutal up in here.
Thread implosion imminent.
Oh wow! How crazy is that! Never heard about that before this non-sourced thread!
File this under things you miss while posting from an I-phone.
College fans are a fickle bunch. Well, it was fun while it lasted, adios.
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR ME LATELY?!?!?!?!
He'll be back..... They always come back
If you're going to make your overly dramatic exit, stick to it. This is at least the second time RDT pulled this one. Don't be a frickin' martyr because you were too damn lazy to look at the board before you posted and missed a post 4 down, and got hammered for it like everyone else would have. It happens to everyone at least once. Don't act like you've achieved some special status where your crap doesn't stink. Instead of making lame iPhone excuses (funny...the other post still appears on my App), man up, say "oops", take the piss out of yourself (didn't we just have a post deleted, "with Malice"?), and spare us this whiny crybaby stuff.
Especially when we know he'll be back, because he's loving the attention of this character he's created.
I was wrong, and I got lazy and didn't check the board. But with all due respect, I never said I was leaving the board before this, I simply said I was going to stop doing recruiting stuff. I like the guys on the board, and I apologize for double posting. It completely slipped my mind to check the board first. For that, I certainly do apologize.
Just stop acting like some drama queen that people gave you a hard time about it. They didn't pick on you any more or less than anyone else making a post on the first page of posts. If you have a gripe it's that all the mods seem to be off today and it went on longer than it should have. But things like your new title seem like you still want to play the sympathy card. No one wants you to beg for forgiveness. Just don't say I'm outta here or exiled...just take your lumps and move on.
Between this post and Herm watching hours of SEC coeds, we're going to need some more nitroglycerin.
Dont apologize for shit. Agreed with other posts people can be dicks around here (myself included) but i see no reason Bolivia is in order. You post good stuff man stick around. It is after all a website, don't take this to seriously.
Not Bolivia. St. Helena.
Dont this scare you off the board. We crucify everyone and we all like your commentary even when it's off. It's usually fun to read.
Come Jerry world tho....it's on like donkey kong.
That is all
He did apologize and he took his lumps. Must have missed the whiny crybaby stuff. Did notice someone being an asshole, though. Repeatedly.
Agreed. Why, exactly, is this such a big deal? If you think a thread is redundant, why not simply move on to the next one, rather than repeatedly going after someone--from another fanbase--whose intentions are obviously good?
Here, let me help-
That was the thread people were replying to. No one got particularly put off that he did a repeat thread, other than the normal teasing that everyone gets. It's the "sniff, sniff, I guess I'll take my ball and go home" stuff (immediately followed by him posting again...so, whatever, that lasted) that was annoying. His apology came after his crying and excuses. Neither of which were necessary.
No difficulties here. I read that one. I think you're taking it too seriously.
What's the phrase about dying and being a hero - or living long enough to see yourself become a villain?
Don't stop posting, RDT. We're a good bunch - there's just a lot of butthurt over missing Isaac. It just so happens that scapegoating is one of our most highly-developed skills. It'll blow over. On the bright side, you didn't ever say it was a lock (looking at you, BKFinest).
Just remember, haters gon' hate.
/Please don't take internet tough guys seriously. Come back soon.
Worn out your welcome a little bit homie. You might want to sit the next few plays out...
Lol at the new thread title. RDT don't take it so hard I have enjoyed your contributions to our lil community here.
It's the interwebs. Don't take it so seriously. Just go back to cool Bear avatar.
I hope dude stops grandstanding and just participates like any other poster because I like the different angle. But I have to admit I laughed out loud when he declared the silent commit wasn't Poggi because Poggi wasn't deciding until mid to late June then less than an hour later news spreads that Poggi will be announcing. That was hilarious.
RDT you put yoursself on a pedestal claiming sources. That's fine but you had tto expect some to challenge the credibilty if you were wrong. Sack up, take your medicine and continue your contribution. The only thing making you look bad right now is playing the victim. People give each other a hard time on the internet man up and do you. Unless doing you is quitting.
this board also put him on a pedestal. Everytime he posts, multiple mgobloggers praise him and applaud his efforts - saying it's so great to have an outsider here and his contributions are extremely valued.
But as soon as the guy double posts, he gets nailed to the cross. Can't have it both ways. Makes us look like a bunch of schizophrenics and dickheads. While he does claim sources, nobody is ever 100% correct when it comes to analyzing the decision process of a 17year old kid.
People round here sure are jerks when someone has the audacity to be kind of wrong about some 50/50 recruiting news. Everyone sure looks like a bunch of jackasses. He contributes a lot of good stuff here so maybe everyone should just call down on their e-hater trips
Amen. Trundling through the mgowebs, a fella can sometimes feel as if being a Michigan Man must have zero to do with being a nice person.
A few very good friends of mine (graduates from east coast schools) have said almost the very same thing (referencing MGoBlog) . . .
Exactly. I'm a little embarassed for us.
This whole thread is hilarious. I was annoyed by multiple longsnapper whining threads but the title is amazing and it gets better from there...
RDT, much like Napoleon at Waterloo, you should have chosen better ground. However, this should not preclude you from posting. One word of advice though... I would get rid of Ney, his incompetence at Waterloo, cost you dearly.
RDT has blown it too many times for me. He promised us Levenberry, he promised us Garnett and Clinton-Dix, he promised we wouldn't get Cissoko but we did anyway. But it goes back further than this for me. In the fall of 2001, RDT's "sources" said I wouldn't get into Michigan. "Wait-listed, at best" he said.
Well FUCK YOU Roll Damn Tide! Here I am!
In other news...Hoke...jerseys...Ohio.
Sure is changing the tides.
"Waterloo" is what British people call it when they pee in a swimming pool.
I once started a thread (one of only two threads I ever started) on mGoBlog about Prince Fielder signing with the Tigers. Someone else had broken the story just a few spots below me. How could I be so stupid??? How could I offend the community so??? No one cares, it's the internet. I asked the mods to delete it, & it was done. We are all capable of carelessness, simple mistakes, etc. But seriously - it's the internet. I can't stress this enough! It's the internet. Possibly the greatest/silliest invention of all time.
What happened RDT??
