Again, tell them why you believe they're wrong. Start there. You can't defend your right to state an opinion while at the same time ridiculing those who do the same.
See what kind of piss me off with some of you guys is you try to paint a picture that I take advantage of people but none of you know a thing about me. If you ask some of the reapers players, when they came to me and told me they didnt get paid I hit the ATM and paid them out of my pocket. When we had a workout and Chuck didnt have the money I paid for it or later when I went to reserve time for the ICFL in the Soccerhouse and found out that $600 of the teams training camp bill was in my name and had to pay that. My self and Coach Holmes have spent in jerseys, field rental, practice time and website over $6000 for the Baltimore Vikings in the ICFL and only collected a grand total of $1000 from the guys with a 30 man roster.
When the guys told me they wanted to play again me and my boys put money up so we can make this work. I dont do this to get rich I do this so these guys have a place to play and can show their talents and maybe one of them can continue their career on a higher level. For those who thought my partner was attacking people, sometimes you respond to people the way they come at you. He is not defending the AIF because he is not a part, he is defending me, the person he works with and has known since he coached against me in high school and knows that I am a stand up person. I dont know the relationship some of you have with the owners of this league and its not my business. All I will tell you before you knock what the Washington Eagles are doing, get to know us personally then come up with your own conclusion.[/quote]
You've got to have a thick skin if you're going to continue to do this. If you see an inaccuracy, point it out and move on. I don't see that you were attacked in this thread or portrayed as the mastermind in any kind of scheme.

Lots of respect for you for doing that. Hope things work out.
You may have misunderstood my post, I DO NOT see that you were presented as the master mind, etc., just for the record.
Okay, here's a challenge for both of you. You both seem disappointed at your perception of "where these threads go," those about the AIF presumably. Can you point out the threads and tell us why you don't think they should have gone in a particular direction? What specifically has been unfair or inaccurate?
opinions are not right or wrong, they're a state of mind.[/quote]
Then lets remove this stumbling block of talking about opinions. Tell me the facts and why all the "haters" (your word) are mistaken.
