    Sorry. I was giving out my own "RedsZone Postee Award," which I think that particular poster deserves.

    Rem, if you want to defend BF go ahead, just don't expect many others to back you up. His post was mean spirited and nasty. Frankly, if he doesn't like RZ then he should go somewhere else.

    I could care less if he has a differing opinion, but he doesn't have to come into a thread like this and throw barbs at other posters and make yet another obligitory Adam Dunn crack.

    Frankly, if it was up to me I'd ban him, I'm tired of it.

    I have a feeling that he will be gone soon.

    Best tag line
    "0 Value over Replacement Poster" and others, but this is my favorite.

    Most Valuable Poster
    Steel. He's the one responsible for me coming back to RedsZone and I'm a better baseball fan for it.

    Most Valuable Poster (Reprise)
    Whose information do you read first, agree the most with, or disagree but read first anyway?
    In alphabetical order: M2, OldRightHander, SteelSD, TeamClark, WoY

    Most Valuable Poster (Reprise II)

    Too many to list. It seems someone is always making a comment that makes me spew barley, hops, yeast, and water all over my keyboard.

    Most Clever/Funniest (Reprise)
    I stumbled onto this thread tonight. It's from 12-14-2004, but Roy Tucker gets my vote for the absolute funniest thing I've ever read on RedsZone. If this isn't archived, it should be.

    http://www.redszone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=30326

    smith288 comes in a very close second with the "more cowbells" clip.

    Best Trademeister
    I have to go with gonelong on this one.

    Most Positive/Nicest
    The Teamsters, SandyD, SuperBarry, KittyDuran, and others that I've Shirley forgotten.

    Best Newcomer
    Cyclone792

    Best Outsider
    MattyMoRocks, Stewie, and most likely others I've missed.

    The Old Red Guard Award
    I think it was ORH who posted about getting arrested for walking home drunk after a Reds game. I wish I had a link for that post. Another thread that should be archived, if it isn't already.

    Best Historian
    Not to take anything away from WoY, but I want to give a shout out to SandyD. She has posted some great stuff as well.

    Lifetime Achievement Award
    Boss took the time to defend/explain the rant against RedsZone at Reds.Com once, after one of BF's tirades on that site. It left a favorable impression with me.

    Oh yea', almost forgot one.

    I think it must be this story you're thinking about.

    I just got a phone call that I'm up for Nobel Prize number seven. Has to do with a 12 page paper I wrote on Sherman's march to the Sea back in college.

    It killed.

    Today is my first anniversary at this site. I am thankful that it did not take me long to get to the Org board. I want to thank everyone for the welcome. Woy would be my nominee for board Historian. Teamcasey is my nominee for nicest poster. My best thread nominees are game threads and the draft thread. Krono is my nominee for most helpful poster. I want to thank everyone again for the warm welcome you gave me this year.

    Only award I wish to hand out is to Bad Fundamentals.

    The refusual to use data, creative thinking and new ideas is precisely why teams like the Reds fail. The "old school" is damning them.

    Badfundamentals reminds me of this with each of his arguments.

    I hope he does not get banned, The person is entitled to an opinion no matter what others think of it. Then again, it aint my board.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    I don't think anyone ever has or ever will get kicked out for having an opinion, but being belligerent to another member is quite another thing.

    I was fine with his contrarianism until it reached the point of attacking folks in this thread. I do believe that dissenting opinions make for good discussion, but IMO he pushed his agenda to the point of making his presence a detriment to RZ b/c he insisted on making things personal. I do realize that he did get picked on somewhat himself, but honestly i don't really think the posters he chose to attack are the ones that picked on him in a personal manner. Frankly, I was probably meaner to him than either Raisor or SteelSD, and that reflects poorly on me, I know.

    Either way, it's really up to Boss & GIK to decide what they want to do. They've shown good judgement in the past and this site is theirs to do with as they please, and I'd just like to thank them both for doing this for all of us because it is a great site.
