    Talking Fyred/Jasper

    Ask and receive:

    Should we bring back Jasper and Fyred?

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

    This's a no-brainer.

    Corollary to this poll: Should Alabama be shown the door and given a size-12 leather boot right out it?

    My answer is "Not yes, but hell yes!"
    Votes?
    My opinions might coincide with someone of importance's POV... I wouldn't know, since I never bothered to ask. My policy is: "Don't ask, don't care."

    If they don't bring them back.. it is proof the inmates are running the asylum!

    I think the only thing this thread will do, aside from the Brotherhood showing their support of Fyred Up and Jasper, is to lure the WT out to post an explanation of the bans, or rather, an explanation of why they don't have to explain their actions to us. The same post they always post when things get out of hand like this.

    I'd be willing to bet all three of them were banned because of the Cincy thread that was deleted sometime between the time I left for work this morning and came home this afternoon!

    FyredUp says he didn't know he was banned. He's never received any notice from the webteam.

    I think you are right. At least an explaination would be nice. Reading the "don't attack another" post by the WT seems fueled by frustration a bit...LOL

    Typical....

    They never let you know until you try to leave a post and you find out that way.

    Seeing the garbage cincyone posted I can see why he was banned.

    However, Fyred Up and Jasper both gave solid opinions and good advice. One may not always agree with what is said, but you can't deny their experience gives them a right to say it.

    Bring them back.



    ***Side note***
    Jasper's favorite alderman made the news up here and would be nice to get the updates from Jasper. Especially with the guy facing prison.
