How do I PM one of the Board Mods?

I have a great idea for a thread that I want to clear from one of them...

Thanx
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

Unfortunately, PMs have been disabled for non-mod users. The admins are (supposedly) working on fixing that issue.

Miller, it might be time to add another topic here in the announcement section. i know it has already extensively been covered in pretty much every topic here not in the least this thread here, but something that catches the eye saying something like: BEFORE YOU EVEN F'IN THINK ABOUT CREATING A NEW THREAD TOPIC READ THIS!!! lol. and then state in the firts post: don't. just don't do it.

:lol:

this is getting crazy! reminds me of when a certain poster managed to get mod status over some rogue thread starters end of 2006 season.....oh wait.....nevermind

Oh no, we're not capable of sarcasm here. You see living in the nation's capital has provided us with a strong lack of tact and subtlety, so you can pretty much take everything we say at face value.

CCJ wrote:chubby_1_kenobi, first of all thanks for starting a thought-provoking thread.

Anyway, you are totally right about everything you're saying; the day that the Wizards buyout Zydrunas Ilgauskas is the day that the music will die for this franchise. I'm not such a good writer but I want to talk about why I just said that and I figured it would be nice if it was well written so I'm gonna do this like this website I found told me I should write to get a good grade on a social studies paper.

First it says you should look up the word you wanna talk about and just say that in the paper; I'm going to do that so give me a second... OK Google says pride is a Japanese fighting thing but it also says its "a becoming or dignified sense of what is due to oneself or one's position or character; self-respect; self-esteem." Then it says to explain what the definition has to do with what you're talking about, and I'm not so sure I know but I'll try. The character of the Wizards, as a professional basketball franchise, is to attempt to put the best product out on the court that it can and to look to do everything it can all the time to make the team better. So being proud as a basketball team is about always working to be better, and wanting to improve. If the Wizards want to be a self-respecting team they have to be good, or armbar really fat guys, I don't think google really knows what it's saying.

Ok so now I have to back up my argument and provide examples, but I'm agreeing with your argument, so I'm improvising a little. The Wizards have the rights to Big Z right now and they want to buy out his contract to save money and so that other teams will keep trading with them and players will like them. But if they were proud of being Wizards they'd be holding on to Z like (it says metaphors are like steroids for grades) they needed him to live. The right way to become the best team you can be is to be as petty and and conniving as possible. Z doesn't want to be here and the Cavs probably entered into an agreement with the Wizards with the understanding that we'd let him go but if we're huge jerks and make everyone angry then we'll be feared, and fear will keep the local franchises in line. (The guide doesn't say this but Star Wars is cool so I'm going for broke) We need to get everyone else to listen so we'll have pride, help me chubby_1_kenobi, you're my only hope.

doclinkin wrote:Late night and the highway is hissing, road spray from a passing truck overloads the wiper blades you know you should have changed a dozen storms ago; and your tired is tired. When you roll off at the next blue sign with the proper icons, and turn the corner: that Stuckey's logo, that '...billions sold', that Dunkin' logo-- like a natural born relief, you'll make a choice. Anywhere in America you know where you are.

And if the lady behind the counter is a little odd, a little too old, wandering eye makes it look like she's talking to a guy who isn't behind you. If there's a booth with two long-haul truckers, rigs idling out back, one turns his head when you come in. If you have a bleary moment when the menu makes no real sense, or if --coffee in hand-- the rain on the window beads up like gel, like jellyfish on the sand, no really what the f*ck-- like Dippity Doo hair gel that your sister used to use in junior high.

Well that sense of the familiar becomes threatening. It could be you, here, on this page.

It's a shortcut. Stephen King is saying: the setting is today, the time is now, and I'll write another book next month if you need me to keep it current. Little is so dated as last month's 'now', read a People magazine from six months ago and you might feel a sort of sick feeling at how quickly popular culture expires, goes 'funny', quicker than skim milk in southern heat.

But I don't know that that quality makes it bad, a Stephen King book or the like. It just hasn't 'antiqued' enough to turn quaint. Or comfortingly nostalgic. But when you're seventy, eighty, and the kids these days don't remember what was a Tower Records, a cassette mixtape, a VCR, pumping 'gas' into your car, well I'm pretty sure these brightly colored logos will still be vivid in your head, be like finding a working cigarette vending machine with pull knobs at an abandoned gas station, somewhere between Nevada and Mexico and you took a wrong turn.

Pretty sure I recall even Gatsby had a moment or two of what was then current, now sepia tone. And if at the nursing home on movie night someone plays The Breakfast Club, pretty sure more than a few aged snobs will feel a cresting swell of nostalgia, leaves you seasick with longing or deja vu.

Stephen King just hasn't yet passed, become a touchstone figure of a time and place. Not every work of every author survives as a classic. But there are a few stories of Stephen King that will become or stay important. To me anyway. Most have become movies actually. Kubrick's The Shining, say.

One that will always stand out for me, that I could go back and read at any time sorta illustrates the above point precisely: the novella The Body from the collection Different Seasons, chock full of his childhood logos and fizzy sodas and jingles long gone, became the move 'Stand By Me' with dead River Pheonix. Pretty sure I won't forget that one for quite some long time, and if they play that at movie night, I'll surely wheel my chair to the front row.

Sure why not:

Ed Wood wrote:Yes, I do not have any idea what precisely occurred CCJ, but I'm not providing anyone with a pass when the entire roster and coaching staff has conspired to produce some truly abominable basketball over the course of the year. I'm certainly not toasting Flip for the histrionics on his part that have characterized this season. I don't care how frustrating it's been for him to have to helm our trash barge (extremely I'm sure) and I don't loose sleep at night as I imagine he might over what this year is doing to his reputation and his ability to find another job should he part ways with this one. I'm even very fond of Andray, insofar as a fan can be fond of a player without knowing him and while he's part of a dirty dozen tasked with the desperate mission to attempt to convince that fan to never want to watch basketball again. That's why I'm coming down on Andray here, because I care about Andray and I want to see the guy accomplish something in a Wizards uniform.

And you know what, maybe Andray is in the relative right here. Maybe he had no intention whatsoever to do anything but everything he could to follow Flip's instructions and is genuinely mystified by Flip's indignation. Maybe he wanted to get in that game and be a part of that loss yesterday and it hurt him that Flip did not share that desire. Maybe five hundred years from now when we build an all-knowing all-powerful supercomputer to reveal to us the mysteries of the universe it will inform us that the biggest son of a bitch in the history of creation was Flip Saunders on the night of Tuesday, March 23, 2010. I must reiterate, I don't give a **** about Flip Saunders. As far as I'm concerned at the end of the year we can see him off with a firm handshake and a tattoo of the team's record across the forehead and that'd be swell. But I do care about Andray, and I want him to be a good player, and he's closer than he's ever been, closer than I expected he'd be when the Wizards traded Antawn Jamison.

And what I'm seeing right now is from Andray is bush league as hell. Flip should not have come crying to the media with his various woes but again, if I were Flip Saunders secret Santa I'd be chewing ten **** bucks worth of gum when I looked the man in the eyes and told him I didn't have the cash to buy a gift; you get the idea. Andray could have stepped up and earned some respect, which is apparently a pretty big deal for him, and kept it in house, talked with Flip, worked things out, been the professional. Instead we're running play-by-play for a dick waving contest. Yeah, I'm sure it rankled Andray's pride to have to hear Flip kvetching about him to anyone who'd listen, but there ain't no escalator to the high road. I will certainly say that from what has been attributed to Andray he comes off better here than Flip, but that's not the better I want when I want better from Blatche. If Andray is tired of dealing with Flip I want him to be the bigger man until Flip's so small he disappears. I don't want to hear about what fraction of the problem Andray thinks he's responsible for, that's a number that's going to get bigger every time Andray mentions it.

Back atcha. I guess I just got nothin' to say right now.

I think it's cause I'm worried for Gilbert, really, it's no longer quite all fun and games. I'm concerned for the man's personal long term emotional health as a human being. Lost his mom, quite likely headed to jail for a stretch. And I don't see how the world or society or Gil are improved by it. But I can see the cat landing in a dark place in his soul, and folks around here or on radio are ready to gloat, or celebrate. Don't feel too good.

As for the team. A kayak with no paddlers. No long term consequences if it goes over the falls.

I'm ambivalent as an electron, I can't uncare, but losses don't sting since they lead to better odds, and wins, were they any, would be illusory anyway on a team with this many free agents and tryouts. And cap space.

Flip, Blatche. Whatever. I'm sorta tired of the widow Flip always bringing up his lost husband KG. Cry and move on lady. I'm tired of it.

Blatche is developing, improving, fixing some bad habits, still hasn't outgrown a few. But progress is always a sign of hope. Even in bitching on the radio he said Flip is a great coach and he's been trying to do everything Flip says, he just made a mistake and got frustrated in the moment, didn't hear what he said. Used to been he was irrelevant to the team, he'd get yanked, scapegoated, and then check out. Now folks actually notice if he's not in the game. Fact is though I could see him actually improving for the flap. But can't care about the histrionics, hard to feel it. The scar tissue is way too thick right now.

'Preciate the shoutout though. I still read the board every now and again.

in a zoological mood WizarDynasty wrote:Wall reminds me of a cheatah... he is a predator. Both Arenas and Wall are hunters. One is a sniper--slash thunder bolt...the other well a Cheetah...is not only the fastest but the most cunning slick hunter. Arenas is more like a Tiger...like the tiger tatoo he has on his chest. he just strikes fear because not only his he powerful but he is also skilled.
Tiger and Cheetah. Wall should get a tattoo of a cheetah on his chest. Speed Grace and once he's locked in on his target..you aren't going to get away.
. An eagle or something. He sees things far far off. He usually kills you because he as well worked out plan which is highly coordinated. Like an eagle swooping in on its prey. Blatche usually see things way before his opponent does and he uses his well thought out move that he has practiced to perfection which is usually extremely creative even if it lacks physical explosiveness. Kind of like an eagle swooping down with a highly planned attack.
McGee is more like a monkey, leaping from branch to branch.

He can't really hold his ground against a land predator. extremely coordinated but doesn't have the ability to create well thought out attacks and doesn't have the power to intimidate other post players which is a necessary requirement for a post player.
Until McGee develop strength to intimidate other bigmen, he will always be a Vegetarian monkey eating fruit in trees but never a predator like Blatche, Arenas, and Wall.
This team at the moment only has three predators. Hinrich i see as wolf, he can probably do damage occassionally but he is best when he is working in a highly coordinate wolf pack, not talented enough to be a solo predator like Blatche, Arenas, and Wall. If McGee some how gets "good knees" and able to do squats...he could become a predator....probably like a shark...He already has coordination..great hands...great flexibility....but what's a shark without power. Until he develops his leg power from heavy squats...he will be a tease. Just a shell of shark. Which is what McGee is now.
So wall a cheetah...Arenas a tiger...Blatche an Eagle..or Hawk... Hinrich wolf...not strong enough to carry the weight by himself at any point in time... Howard...fits in the same mold as Hinrich except...Howard would be a lead wolf...hinrich a following member of the pack.
Young reminds me a peacock....likes to strut and show off but definitely not a hunter..reminds me of the warthawg in lion king...happy living off worms and grubs....definitely isn't worried about bringing getting his hunt on to bring back food for the tribe.
thornton is like a antelope...big horns but isn't cunning enough to be a predator. I guess i have to see more T.Booker and Seraphin. Booker looks like a Silver Back...pretty aggressive and expect aggressiveness from his team mates and protector. Don't know about his skill yet time will tell.
Yi reminds me of Simba living with Warthog eating grubs...He knows deep down that he is a lion ...but his mind can't piece together successful hunting practices because successful training was never passed down to him. So he is a forest trying to figure out how to hunt successfully with no one proven to trust and help him escape long learning curve associated with not having a successful mentor to imitate when he was young.
Had he had successful nba style mentor growing up he would probably be MJ at the powerforward spot.


Gilbert Arenas is like liger, it's a cross between a lion and a tiger. It's pretty much my favorite animal. Link.

Miller deserves NO credit for how clean the boards are. Anybody who's been here long enough knows that the original mods were the ones to lay down the law in regards to thread creation. Miller has not done much aside from pick up the slack where the original mods no longer have the time to do so, and anger other long time posters of the forum.

He essentially showed up one day after posting for a while on the GB as a Wiz fan when there was a Mod opening. He snitched out Donkey and won a job as local Mod. Hmmmm.

Credit for the system here goes to JMRosenth, PineappleheadinDC, and WizStorm.

AND the quality of content is largely due to WizardsKev for being one of the most knowledgeable and credible posters I've ever read on an online forum. Anybody who read this guys posts had to step their game up if they even thought about responding.


Against my better judgment, I'll step into this one. As one of Miller's biggest opponents that's a load of dung. The whole snitch episode was essentially a long standing, running joke which was galvanized by me and Donk. It's incredibly callow to draw any type of theory as to how he got his ban hammer from this. The older mods have had a reduced role of this board and miller has stepped up to the plate. This board is indeed knowledgeable, which is why I keep my mouth shut on things I have no business speaking about, so whether you think your suspension was warranted or not, don't draw your arguments from conjecture and hypothetical theories about how you "think" things are run here.

This board has a great group of characters, and I'd love to meet all of you someday if I get the opportunity to visit D. C again. Lord knows I've been dying to crack a facking bat over miller's skull, share a joint with sumtingwong, go to a stripper bar with CCJ, teach hands11 the intricacies of a run-on sentence, teepee Pine's house with Donk, break nate's calculator and watch him cry like a b*tch, disable Rico's emoticon function, have lunch with DCzards and tell him I really don't hate his son but he's just a really bad coach, outfit Ji with highly conductive copper rods and tie him to a tree during a thunder storm, and krazy glue doc's mouth shut because for once I'd like to see him speechless.

...ah good times.



About the only time you'll see JWiz say something about semi-pleasant about Miller, so I figured I'd bronze it here.

Just wanted to say Hello and let you know I read the rules. I'm a huge Wizards fan and Washington fan in general. I've been reading this board for a couple years and I'll be posting around here a little bit now. I honestly think this is the best place to discuss Wizards basketball with smart people that understand the game. Hopefully I can contribute to some great discussions and earn my stripes around here.

Here's to a great season, Go Wizards!

WizarDynasty wrote:i agree. At the very least, we haven't had a player as tough as Kevin Seraphin in the last 10 years. Etan was semi tough but he had no foot coordination or hand coordination.
its just nice knowing that McGee is getting rough in practice everyday instead of watching him get roughed up for the first time in games that count.
What i like is the dynamic that Seraphin is actually younger than McGee and the culture in the wizard locker room is that younger player are normally on a lower pecking order than more experienced player.
McGee instinctively feels that he should dominate Seraphin since Seraphin is younger less senior but we see that Seraphin doesn't play by those rules. When mcgee first came in he cowered to haywood, he coward to Blatche and whoever else had seniority over him. In college he coward to Fesenko because because Fesenko was senior to him. Now he is in a situation where he has to battle against a rookie and rookie is dominating him physically and has no respect for seniority. Its like watching an action suspense film.
What will mcgee do now that a player 3 years younger than him injects fear to himself. There is a mechanism in McGee that pushes him to dominate players that he feels are less senior than him.
Blatche is responsible for this because blatche has been playing behind Jamison all these years purely to seniority. But now a foreign player who is hard to communicate with but is physical basketball player on your team that you see almost everyday shoves a powerful forearm into your chest every chance he gets and send your weak body hurling across the court and embarassing you in front of the older senior wizards players for the soft player you are and what's great is Seraphin feels no remorse and isn't even aware of how soft McGEe, Seraphin is just being the player he was before he came to wizards. So what will McGee do to get this foreign rookie to respect him just he was forced to respect the elder bigman basketball players of mcgee's basketball career.
or will mcgee learn now that he should have been like seraphin all along. That's what i will watch this season and see what happens. Will McGee break down and dissappear or will we see a dramatic change in style that McGee unleashes. What lies inside a McGee will be exposed due to the brutality of his 3 year younger rookie teammate who plays his exact position.
Finally will it force McGee to really develop his non contact game since at the moment he is no match physically for Seraphin and Seraphin...unlike his previous team mates actually enjoys shoving mcgee to the ground every play to grab every rebound. how long will the wizards last with booker guarding Seraphin in practice. Blatche won't have to worry so much because coaches dont' want to put any stress on blatche's foot so there is no escape from the brutality of Seraphin...mcGee gets tougher or he is ridiculed by his teammates..and while the non english speaking Seraphin has no clue what he has done to McGee psyche due to the language barrier so he doesn't ease up on his brutality of the soft mcgee. So entertaining.

I can't stand it anymore.

I can't stand haters, the glass-half-empty crew, the ignorant "get your opinion from ESPNers", the bandwaggoners, the guys who'll expect a break in their lives when they screw up but will cut others no such consideration.

I stand before you today in appreciation of Gilbert Arenas. First, I stipulate the following:

-- It's dumb to bring guns to your workplace.
-- Gilbert has a big contract (which was based not on him holding a gun to anyone's head, but based on his on-the-court performance).
-- Gilbert -- and every other NBA player out there -- live a completely different life than I do.


Okay, that being said:

-- Gilbert has paid his price. He went through the legal system and has served his time - to my understanding as a model individual. Legally, his debt to society is paid, it's the way our system works. And if it's good enough for our legal system, it's good enough for me.

-- Think about all of the good things he's done in our community. He's been accessible, charitable, and an outstanding member of our community.

-- He put the Wizards on the map again. For those of you with short memories, I remind you of a team including Anthony Goldwire, Tyrone Nesby, Ike Austin, Chris Whitney (I liked him, though), and Laron Profit. No other player in recent history - except MJ during his comeback - did more to put our franchise on the map and infuse the then MCI Center with a sense of excitement.

-- We all were, both around town and in this virtual space, the community of "hibachi!" Of Agent Zero. Of the Steve Buckhantz "DAGGER!" as you gaze onto the court and see Gil, right arm raised in the sky and wrist cocked post-jump shot, looking as if that 35 footer was a free throw.

I believe in redemption. I believe in second chances. I am an unabashed fan of Gilbert.

A few years ago, I talked to Gilbert's dad over the phone - I' wanted to interview him, but he called me while I was driving in traffic and I couldn't pull over to take notes. Anyway, Gil's dad talked about his son's drive and determination. And as I recall, he also talked about the web and how there were people who just didn't know what they were talking about posting all kinds of tripe.

Gil, if you or your peeps read this, I hope you take all of negativity and put it into that place that only you know - the one that will drive you to make your comeback truly successful. And then, you can look at all of the negativity, the blogger, the whoever and you'll know who has won.

Gilbert Arenas is my guy. I'm a fan. Period.

Ed Wood wrote:Dear LIttle Celtics Fan who Sat Next to Me Tonight,

Hey kid. First of all nice job being a vocal fan but not an annoying fan, you were ahead of the curve for like five or something. I'm sorry you were disappointed that they weren't showing Celtics highlights on the jumbotron but your team is very ugly so that's probably for the best. It's too bad your formative fan experiences can't be in Boston at the Garden but this was pretty much the same crowd but with better accents and black people. You really impressed me with how you handled the tough loss. Sure you were pretty upset, but you barely even cried, way to stay strong. And when you and your dad left with four tenths of a second left I reached over and I took one of those few tears and I drank it. It was delicious.


Home win over Celts and a pro leper-con crowd.

Wow, you couldn't leave well enough alone could you ya little twerp? Nah. You had to push it. Now you're gonna pay.

You are DYSLEXIC and think you have a place talk down on anyone else? Spend some more time on reading comprehension and maybe you can put together 4-letter words without butchering the english language. You're trash, you're a loser, you're nobody. Read your posts, you sound like a blabbering idiot a few steps short of suicide. Seriously, Kill Yourself.

Then these other pricks want to come out of the wood work now, when they think I can't respond? I can always respond, BAN ME PINE you HAWAIIAN CHUMP. Pine has been waiting for this moment for 10 years, don't like you chump. You have wanted to ban me since I pulled out of that season ticket deal you tried to SCREW ME on. You and your boys thought you could snatch up all the marquee games and leave me with the crap end of the deal at the same price, get real that was never happening, and you've had a bone to pick with me since. I'll make it easy for you then.

FISHERCOK, Mr. Tough Guy who likes to talk big on the internet. I can only imagine what your day to day life is like, I can just about guarantee everybody in your life pushes your old ass around. The fact that you get off on talking tough on the web shows what kind of loser you must be. You've been a couple steps short of crying your eyes out to your FAMILY on this forum many times. You idiots really need to stop posting personal information on a BASKETBALL forum, I have enough dirt on most of you to make your entire lives miserable if I wanted to.

You guys are absolutely hilarious and the past year I've spent posting back here has absolutely destroyed my enjoyment of this team. I've taken joy in watching the only team I've ever rooted for in my life LOSE GAMES because I know it bothered SOME of the pricks on this forum. F that, I'm done with it. Most of you here are not real Wizards/Bullets fans in the first place. Every interaction I've had with REAL Wizards fans, in person, has been awesome. You guys are a joke.

There's many who come to this forum and feel like I do, however they don't post because they know their feelings are not welcome. This place is about as close minded as it gets. As soon as someone gets out of line or refuses to tone it down, in comes the power-tripping mods with the suspensions. That's just not how discussion forums work, and is why this site has been going down hill for a while now.

I'm done here, I'll be back to haunt you when the time is right. You wanted me to be a troll, that's exactly what I'll be. I'll put these faggy mods to work here for sure.



I don't know if this is HOF-worthy, but it is one of the more epic flameouts I've seen on a MB.

I didn't even know it was Fokus nor did I know what was going on. Man...that was something.
