The guy who said Fales would be drafted before Carr back in 2013. Then changed it to Fales would have a better career than Carr. Then he disappeared

You can just say Howdy Doody.

He is a complicated man, not good in front of the camera but warm and excellent behind them, but an excellent coach.  The Wyoming incident was blown out of proportion by their Richard Cranium of a coach. In that game the starting AF starting QB came out, we still had a timeout, the backup QB scored a TD on the next play and Christensen lost his mind saying we faked an injury to 'stop the clock'. Did I mention we had to take starting QB out and did have a TO to use? The accusation didn't even make sense in the timing and situation of the game....Christensen just got beat and was pissed.

Anyways....GO FALCONS

Where in the heck is slapdad?  He of the Nevada fedora and taking long walks on the beach.  I miss slappy much too.  

Someone should get really creative about all of this and post up a votr poll with multiple options.  

Bring Back These Folks.  With a list of options and just for congenial, good ole times funsies.  

BTW, who was the original one who inadvertently dorked up and invented votr?  I have no clue who that cool cat was.  He or she invented something new and fun.  Votr.

Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

Slapdad still posts, mostly OT Board

This saddens me. I actually try and avoid the OT Board, but when your football team is as bad as ours was, I guess you spend most of the season on the OT Board. The ratio of OT to non-OT posts normalized  during basketball season.

No, I mean he literally looks like Howdy Doody.

 

Plus, I was at that game, 10 rows up on the east 40 yard line. Thanks for the refresher. I saw AFA's coaching staff direct the QB down to the turf. Say what you will, but that burned clock.

What about Maytard? Or for that matter, any other (former) poster who's spirit animal is a drooling kid wearing a helmet while riding on a short bus.

he posted pictures of him and her and internet tough guy and all around jackass Italics ended up being a 20 year old BYU student who looked to be about 125 lb soaking wet and was also a theater nerd. 

she was cute. the filipina girl I was dating at the time was cuter. I somehow managed the urge to not post pictures of us on MWCboard 

I lived in Manila for a little and my head was constantly on a swivel. I was in my mid 30's at the time and even just going to the mall you'd see some of the most beautiful women. I'd avoid Manila though because they've got some of the best beaches in the world but they just suck at marketing them to everyone.

Did Fales finally get promoted to manager at Applebees?

A quick Google and you’ll find that he’s an “Account Executive” for Zoom. Guessing that title simply translates to salesman. 
 

Derek is reportedly seeking $35 million per year in his next contract. Do account executives at Zoom rival that salary?

Yoda is tearing it up over on the Aztec Mesa.

If by "tearing it up" you mean "getting ripped a new one", then yeah that's me.  Some of those folks aren't just drinking the Kool Aid, they're drowning in it.

I left this board for several years but have been back very irregularly for several months.

I miss BadDawg -- a Fresno poster who passed away -- and the cowboy fan (name escapes me), an ER paramedic who regaled us with stories of all the various products that he had to pull out of people's butts on a drunken (but apparently horny and lonely) Saturday night.

____________________________________________...

After deleting some of my posts and closing the offending SteveAztec thread, a couple of elites have been able to open it long enough to respond to me anyway.  And since I can’t respond on a closed thread, here is my response…

Other than the initial inquiry, this has never been about letting Steve post again; I doubt that he even wants to post here.  My complaint is about his treatment on this board and the failure of admins to control attacks on him – and worse, to sometimes participate in those attacks.

Steve was first banned on the SDSU board.  When he was banned, it was a sufficiently controversial that they started what became an 8 page thread on the topic to justify the decision (https://aztecmesa.proboards.com/thread/9747/steve-aztec-longer-member-board).  It is clear that Steve had support in the community and there was some criticism for the Board Administrators for having failed to “expel the dozens of people who've been taunting him.”  (And take a look at the thread that I bumped; initially it was supporters happy about Steve getting a radio show.  Then the haters arrived.)

I can’t say if Steve took it too far in response, but I will say that he denies most of various accusations and adds important missing context to others.  But I wasn’t a party to any of the events and can’t say who is in the right and who is in the wrong.  And I have to admit that if half of what has been said about him is true, depending on context, I might well have banned him too.  Or more likely I might have banned those who were taunting him.  (Steve had lost a brother-in-law to suicide and there have been a number of memes of people blowing their brains out, as well as posts blaming Steve or his sister for the suicide – and admins apparently let it go.)

I am in no position to evaluate the truth or falsity of the laundry list of claims made on this board about how Steve responded to all this.  My complaint, however, is about his treatment on this board.  I may be wrong, but his banning on this board at least appears to have been less about what he did on this board and more a carryover from the SDSU banning.  The same taunting continued – more suicide memes – apparently ignored by the admins. Utenation supposedly posted the first and it is explained away because he didn’t know about the suicide.  But was the post taken down?  Was an apology issued?   Indeed, for years, admins on this board have allowed Steve to be vilified based on little more than anecdotal hearsay.  This is a privately owned board, but it is not a private board – anyone can join.  And more than that, It’s not an anonymous board; people know who Steve.  You have a duty to protect your posters from libelous statements and unproven allegations -- especially when, having been banned themselves, they have no ability to defend themselves.

Even Retrofade (who says he’s not a mod but can post to closed threads) put up a “blowing his brains out” meme several years ago.  He knew that Steve lost his brother-in-law to suicide, and he now says that “Steve is a mentally disturbed individual”, which is libelous by the way, but excuses his meme as nothing more than being in “poor taste”.  Apparently it is okay with the board's current admins to taunt a "mentally disturbed person" because the post has never been taken down.  The poster has never been admonished.  And there has been no apology, unless you consider "he deserved it" to be an apology.

In my view, you owe Steve an apology for the treatment that you have tolerated and, in some cases, engaged in.  A former Aztec board went out of business when sued (not by Steve).  It won’t be the last one.  You need to fix this.  You need to administer your board and prevent libelous and incendiary attacks -- hearsay-- on posters.

So, what's up with them not allowing me onto the AM ? I have made three applications. Seems like they could use some diversity over there.

I have no idea why they aren't allowing you in, but I think that the last thing they want over there right now is a diversity of opinion.  Most of them seem to think that they are at the top of the expansion list for both the PAC and the Big 12 -- and can choose between the "informal" offers that they have in hand from each -- even though neither conference has decided to expand and the Big 12 has no idea what schools will be available to them when they make the decision to expand.

I'm not sure that the PAC will take them -- they are academic snobs in the PAC, which would seem to qualify SDSU, but AM fans may too snobby even for them.

I think that I will stop here.  Don't want to hijack the thread...

I’m still waiting for some facility updates from CJ. It’s been way too long since his last report.
