OMG, guys... guys.  I just spent a good 10-15 minutes on The Birther Pit (?) thinking it was Combo Fanning... I was like WTF did this place turn into.

This happened, pretty much, IMMEDIATELY after leaving this thread.  So I had to come back and be transparent about it.

Has this sorta thing ever happened to you??  (I could've said no 15 minutes ago  :embarrassed: )

solid addition to the thread. it's all about honestly, people.

another one... i don't know what FP, TC, etc. means....   :bang: :bang:

Effing p*ssy, team cancer, etc. Supposedly Prince called a player this term at some point during his tenure.

he called Boss a rough ridin' pussy about being injured and made him quit.  everyone on gpc and fans would call players team cancers whenever they would quit.  it had begun to spin out of control with defections and when AE was announced as leaving (at least I think it was AE)  I posted the link with:  rough ridin' pussy, team cancer, etc. to get it all out of the way.  Sometime after that it was shortened.

Solid Long Term Hire.  When we hired Huggs and later Frank everyone in the media and from other programs said we should have made a solid long term hire like Bxzdelecheck, Doc, McNeck, etc.  We then began to compare the careers of the solid long term hires to the careers of our apparently weak short term hires and pick out traits that SLTHs have.

If this thread keeps going, its going to eliminate the need to lurk for months or years deciphering the lingo before posting. Not sure that's good, could reduce eliteness.

There's actually been a similar thread in the support forum for awhile now.

I'm fairly confident I'm the worst poster on the entire board. I literally bring nothing to the table.


Also - this emoticon is my fav  :runaway:

I am generally considered (for better or for worse) to be the board grammarian/proofreader.

It's a badge I simultaneously wear with honor and shame.

does anyone else know you wear this badge, or is this a skinnybenny to skinnybenny type of thing.

You tell me, brah.   :D

I have lots of great ideas for pictures and stuff but I don't feel like making a photobucket or imageshack accout to post pictures on here.  I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm lazy.
