    Who do we blame...

    for 33 leaving us and going to CR, egami, Aclone, Monty Burns. Take your pick?

    I need to register the fire(enter poster's name here) URL, so we can start the campaign.

    In all seriousness, I liked his commentary and information. It's been asked enough times around here, I thought maybe we all could just get an official statement.

    Re: Who do we blame...

    He was a high school kid from Omaha, Neb. that sent the players messages on Facebook asking them everything. I knew a few of them figured out what he was doing and quit responding. I don't believe he actually "knew" the players like he said. At least that's what I've been told.


    42-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Really? So you think the former player inside info thing was bunk?

    This is not correct.

    I'm not sure why certain posters were called out in this thread - one wasn't even posting when 33 was on here, and I don't remember the other two ever being confrontational. Let's keep other posters out of this.

    Did he say why he was leaving CF?

    Thinly veiled way of saying blame her.

    LOL - bring it on.

    I would suspect at least some of it has to do with football not being in season?

    Re: Who do we blame...

    It was really for sarcasm sake, I'm really not blaming anyone for a poster not posting on a board. I could put the sarcasm pirate on every word, but I thought that would be too much. :)

    Re: Who do we blame...

    He is a former player, he probably stopped because some posters would basically ridicule what he said...plus some of the current football players probably didn't like having their conversations, etc. posted on a public forum.

    I would agree with the latter but I don't remember 33 every being ridiculed on here. Maybe I missed it

    Let's all stop trying to guess at another anonymous poster's identity. There's a lot of misinformation out there, and it really doesn't need to be spread.

    Thanks.

    It's obviously Jamie Pollard's fault.
