    Good show, lots of promise. If you want to see a preimier fire department, the OCFA is one of the best in the nation. Try to look past the helmet stigma on this board and you will see a model fire department.

    Must be another case of everyone picking on you huh. Oh wait, you were the first to bring anything up.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?

    'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.

    Nah, you have it all wrong. You brought up the helmets, not him.


    Someone sure has a serious case of little man syndrome. It's almost comical.

    Two more clowns that cant contribute to the topic at hand. Either not intelligent enough in the fire service or no knowledge of the subject.

    More like two obsessed fans, needing to follow me around the board. Good thing the web team is banning people now.

    The show looks good. It will be interesting to watch. OCFA is a great dept, they come out east often.

    It sounds like the perfect chance to get some good publicity and allow the public to see alot more of what firefighters train to do.

    Hopefully the producers will not screw this chance up to do this.

    So tell us then, is this your idea of "contributing" to a topic at hand? Is this post from a training thread your idea of "intelligence" in the fire service?

    Whatever, dude. You wonder why you catch flack from people on these boards. Your first post on this thread and your other little beauty from the grain thread really do a big number for your credibility, or lack thereof.

    But you're right, we're the ones making "inflammatory" posts...blah, blah, blah.


    Now, isn't it time for your cute little "stick to the topic at hand", or one of your other quirky little "retorts"; I know I can't wait for it.




    As far as the show is concerned, I hope it's successful and well received, just like "First In" has been.

    The only reason I catch flack on these board is because sensitive sallys like you get their feelings hurt, get mad and follow me around the board in an effort to make me look bad.

    Thanks for proving my point.

    You catch flak because you have a chip on your shoulder and are easy to get to. You **** and moan about dissenting opinions, yet do the exact thing you cry about when people give you a hard time, the epitome of a hypocrite.
    The fact is you make yourself look bad, no one else does that for you.

    I actually find it hilarious that you think Illinois is part of your hated "east coast".
    Check that, it's actually kind of sad.
    Take a good hard look at some of the stuff you post, and then try and tell yourself that you aren't stirring the pot, or that you aren't just a wee bit sensitive. Very funny.

    What point would that be? The point that you're nothing but a little whiner who likes to pretend the whole forum world is out to get you?
    You're the one with over 6,000 posts, it seems to be that you would be in a lot of threads.

    Again, whatever. Please, stick to the topic at hand, or don't post. (How did that sound?)

    Your like a sickening high school sally who just talks and talks and talks. STFU already. I am actually embarassed for you. Freaking 6,000 posts on here. You do know that there is a world out there? Theres some fun things in life to do besides sitting on this forum all day. Theres beer, women and when you mix the two together even a poor slug like yourself can get lucky.

    Of course they are a preimer dept, they are from California aren't they?


    I'd love to have tv cameras see some of the academies where "desired" candidates are pushed through.

    on a serious note, whats the deal with the big pockets on the right chest. It seems to be a west coast thing to have that bulbous pocket there.

    Being called a "clown" by you, is the epitome of being at the complete other end of the spectrum possible

    The big pocket on the right side is to hold the SCBA mask.

    oh. Not sure if I'd like having that there, but its a nice way to keep the face piece protected while doing outside work or doing other dirty work.
