I have followed this team since 1970, through the good and the bad. I have praised and I have blasted players during these times. In 1990 I lived in Atlanta Ga, before the internet and I would sit in my car trying to pick up WLW ON MY RADIO because I could not sleep until I knew if we won or lost. And if we lost I could not sleep anyway LOL. My Son is a huge A's fan so to say that Wrold Series was special is an understatement. I have been this way since day one with this team. I am not as knowlegable as many here about stats and numbers but that does not make me less of a fan. I have been a member here for years. I usually read and don't post much. I have made a few post since this new thing started only to see nothing happen to my points. And you will NEVER see me BEG for them. I can understand not wanting posters that post all negative remarks, but why can't they be delt with individually. I will still come here and read, and make a post every now and then, but probl never get enough points to post on the other board, and quite frankly I find that a bit insulting. Someone refered to the other board as the majors and this board the minors. AGAIN, I would challenge anyone living to being as big a fan as me. I love this team. I get angry when they do stupid things, I scream when they do great things, and I will drive over 450 miles one way every year to watch them play live. This is just one fans voice, not meaning to undermine what the MOD's here have done. It is their board and they are entitled. I just can't say I agree
Fan since 1970
Rest assured, save for one post in this thread (which is not accurate), no one thinks anyone with posting ability on ORG is a bigger, more dedicated fan than someone without it. We're all pretty big Reds' fans for being here in the first place, right?
