    It was also pretty cool that he could do that because the rest of the division was so bad. How bad were they? So bad they got the nickname of Spitards. So bad that a slightly respected owner claimed he couldn’t rebuild because his team won too much surrounded by those terrible teams. So bad that crocko managed to be above .500 while finishing in 4th or 5th place for the decade.

    You have found a way to make my statement a paradox. Well done Swede.. well done.

    I anxiously await Jelly’s defense of crocko’s managerial skill.

    Re: Controversy Thread

    I think the divisional strength of TCL at the time is well-documented, including by me. I thought the original comment was about how weak the division in LOL was, where I basically never had to call up my draft picks and just kept making the playoffs anyway. I don’t recall exactly how bad it was (like Dead Ball levels of historically bad?) or if I was just taking over a team that had previously tanked its way to crazy talent. I think it might have been a little of each.

    Also, I am on the record about Crocko’s faculties.

    I remember that LOL team. Didn't D Man take over for you and win a World Series shortly thereafter?

    Re: Controversy Thread

    The crazy part of this thread is it's 3 years overdue starting 2008. CBF was fighting constantly in the 2005 - 2008 time frame.

    Anywho... I think a lot of folks are just older, with less time for internet fights, and maybe a smidge more maturity.

    Re: Controversy Thread

    The biggest controversy, maybe, was the killling of the original controversy thread, which showed up at the top of the Top Threads List forever, flying too close to the sun, only to be jammed back to earth.

    A short, short time ago... I can still remember
    That forum used to make me smile.
    And I knew if I gave them a chance,
    They would make the forum police glance,

    Then maybe they'd be happy for a while.
    But big brother never made me shiver,
    With every swear word I delivered,
    Bad news on the doorstep...
    I’d be banned with one more misstep.

    I can't let them take my pride
    When I read these posts where they tried
    But something burned me deep inside,
    The day the forums died.

    Soo..Bye, bye freedom – We must comply
    If one more homo joke is ever spoke, our league will die
    But us good ol' boys may be risky and try

    Because were not afraid of letting swears fly
    were not afraid of letting swears fly

    Have you posted about man love
    Do you violate the by laws above
    If brian tells you so
    Do you believe in thought control

    Can the community managers take your soul
    We won’t even let them take a toll

    Well I know some of you are in fear of him
    And think the future is looking grim
    But don’t you start to sing the blues
    Just hop on Paypal and pay more dues

    Everyone’s a slave to the almighty buck
    With five dollars and an once of luck
    soon we will again say ***
    The day the forums died

    I started singin'..

    Bye, bye freedom – We must comply

    Because were not afraid of letting swears fly
    were not afraid of letting swears fly

    Now for 10 months we've been on our own
    Following the lead of Citizen Clone
    But that's just how it used to be


    Just when Frank King came on the scene
    With stats he borrowed from Shawn Green
    That’s when I started swearin’ like a fiend



    And while the Prince was looking down
    NG HOF stole his homerun crown
    The TCL forum was adjourned

    No one ever returned

    While big brother read the book of Marx
    We kept quiet with all our snide remarks
    And we made our complaints in the dark

    The day the forums died

    We were singin'..

    Bye, bye freedom – We must comply
    If one more homo joke is ever spoke, our league will die
    But us good ol' boys may be risky and try
    Because were not afraid of letting swears fly
