We lost the best WR in the league to injury and still had a winning season with those "5 regular guys", while starting an NFL record 58 different players due to additional injuries and COVID, and let's not forget being displaced for a month by Hurrcane Ida. Let's put things in perspective.

That's what I thought, too, Fin. That's why I thought it was cool.

Or block me if you'd rather. I don't mind. Guido is going to stop harassing other posters here or he's going to leave. I don't care which one, but I'm on his ass until then. Bet on it.
Fine saints fan. Life is just too short to listen to other people bicker and argue. Don't you get enough at home? Just kidding.

Why don't you just block Guido instead of me blocking you? I hate to block you because I really like what you have to say. You're very well informed. Maybe Halo should start a bickering site. lol

I'm Scottish too and I wear a kilt at most rugby events. It's called the black Scott.

Re: Jeff Ireland

No way would I ever let him walk if he's under contract. He's much too valuable. I don't care if there is some sort of league compensation. This is a business and should be run like one with contracts completed to the end of their agreement. Sure, I'd give him another raise. Oh wait, didn't we just give him more money?

Fair enough.

Many months ago Guido was attacking "The Dude". I stepped in a forced him to stop, at which time he sent me his infamous "you know, we have a lot in common" bull**** PM. He then apologized. Not long after he went after "Boston Saint". I stepped in. He publicly apologized to Boston Saint...and then attacked him again two days later over the same subject, across threads.

These are just two recent incidents. There have been many MANY others. For a very long time I just let it be...let other people handle him. Most of us here are grown people.

Then he started attacking me, and I warned him then to stop. He did not. I sent him PMs, etc, and attempted to be diplomatic. It became clear as crystal this idiot either can not or will not stop. He just...can't.

So I told him to cease or deal with me trolling him at every turn. He chose to deal with me. That's how we got here.

Ask around. Guido has run people off from this board. Good people. He has attacked well-respected members here. They'll share their stories if you ask I'm sure.

So, I have had enough. The best way to stop this fool is to give it back to him in magnitudes. Rather than Guido roaming this board picking fights with people, I shut him down. All the 'fighting' is now between he and I...and that's fine. That's a little bit of progress.

I've been posting here for 20 freaking years. I've seen *******s come and go, but this guy is the worst of the worst.

He's still doing it you know? Playing the victim, telling other people here he just can't understand what's going on. He knows precisely what's going on. No shame here. I'm an extremely easy-going guy, but not after I'm pissed.

I'm pissed. He'll stop, leave on his own, or be shown the door. I'm down with either option, but he will stop.

So, just scroll on by. Pay no attention. This is worth doing for the greater good.

My heritage originated in Scotland, as well. Migrated to Ireland several centuries ago.
