Honestly, why do you care this much what he thinks, IF? He left it alone, for heaven's sake, yet some seem insistent on baiting him into an argument. Are some AFL fans really that insecure in their game that they'll go to the extent of sabotaging Wikipedia entries? You're right, Dan, that's just plain pathetic. Baiting others into arguments isn't much better.

Many experts in field of psychoanalysis would diagnose exactly that. It's bad enough that a so called fan would do it, but when an owners son constantly engages in actions like this it's an embarrassment to the league and the sport itself.

This is one of the reasons many are turned off by the forums.

I've never understood it, and this goes back years. There are a small number of AFL fans who believe that they can support the game by harping on the indoor leagues and their fans. Rather than being ambassadors of the AFL game, they turn into shills. It's foolish. I can't see what would drive such actions other than insecurity.

[quote=""Caballo Diablo""]While you're not nearly as bad as a few others, it's ignorant posts like this that inundate the forums.

I took no shot at the AFL, and am involved in it more than you think. I took no sht at anyone or anything, just stated my opinion about a couple of forums and who runs them.

Does this mean you support someone using your name to pretend to be you on forums?

Are you lying or just ignorant to my thoughts on the AFL? I spoke with Mr Kurz and some owners years ago about creating a league between the AFL and af2. I've stated many time the lower cost of their business plan was agreat step in the right direction to keep ArenaBall alive, I was very happy with and supported the af2. My prediction has always been, once they get a few years under their belt to work out the kinks on the new league that it should be very successful.

This doesn't mean things are perfect and theirs no concerns. It's amazing how some of you bash people for discussing concerns or the possible negatives. Some of you seem blind to what it actually takes to start and run a busines and just blindly follow your hearts. Business reality doesn't work that way.

Either you're clueless or just like to post false info for a reaction.

Really I've been more active with the sport being away from the forums. The insiders don't like the stuff plastered all over the forums.

I've had my focus elsewhere recently, a couple of weeks ago my wife had major surgery, she was the one on life support, not me. The Texas Stars (AHL) in their innaugural season have had a great playoff run and are in the championship series. The last two series went to the seventh game with the Stars winning them both on the road with their backup goalie. They play just a few miles from my house.

The upcoming move of F1 coming to Austin has been in the works for three years and was just leaked to the press by one of the few people involved that didn't sign a non-disclosure contract. This has been a time consuming project and their finally ready to start construction on the new track here.

There has been many far more important things going on than correcting liars and haters on a message board. The entertainment and information value of the forums has plummeted quicker than the stock market over the past couple of years. Sorry to disappoint you but your evaluation is way off.[/quote]



Sorry to hear about your wife. I hope she is doing better.

But as far as the forums go; if your going to be able to dish it out, you need to be able to take it.

Caballo was just voted best fan to abandon message boards by the massive T-Cats fan club. :p

On a serious note, I hope your wife is well.
If integrity is missing, so are you.
