For 1, you get a new car every 2-3 years.
2. Personally, I will not buy something that depreciates over time, a car is not an investment and when you buy a car or finance, you will be making those monthly payments for 5-8 years, depending on how much u put down and the car.
3. By the time you done with the payments, the car is almost ready to break down unless you maintain it. BMW's and Benz etc .. do not hold their value at all. Honda, toyota and few cars last pretty long and the parts are cheap and easy to get so it wouldn't be too bad with those kind of cars.
I like to "buy" things that goes up in value overtime like property, gold, sneakers etc.. if not then I lease it. Just my opinion.


It all depends on your lifestyle. My last car I owned for over 11 years, my current one that I am paying on, I will drive it no less than 8 years. Leasing cars is fine, it's just silly to say that is the best way of doing things as a general broad statement.

I believe it is the best way of doing things and it isn't silly. Unless you're buying a used honda or toyota then it's ok, but if you're buying a used BMW, Audi etc... it's not a good idea. If you want a more flashier looking car than I would lease it but if you want something reliable and from point A to point B, can't go wrong with a littler older model Honda.

Hey Everyone! I have only ever been in the Trades and Transactions section of the website, mainly the Trades and Transactions Games, but I have been told numerous times of the wonderful action on this forum in particular. I am sorting through the vast amount of threads to find some information, but if anyone could fill me in on the BAT or similar franchise building games you have here, I'd love to learn more! Thanks so much!

Post#826 » by Red Vines » Thu Apr 26, 2018 12:30 am

Let me introduce myself. I have a sweet tooth for Red Vines. I grew up on the 90s Knicks, love Patrick Ewing. Been on this forum for 13 years, graduated college, got married, bought our first house, chasing kids around while I post, no complaints. I remember my first posts criticizing fans for being pessimistic, I've always been an optimistic fan, trying to see the glass half-full. I've had the opportunity to be a moderator but instead recommended other people who I thought would do a good job. A lot has changed but I'm here every season cheering on this dumb team. Anyway, these last few months have sucked. I've been banned 3 times because some people strongly disagree with some of my opinions and have convinced others I'm trolling. For the record, the last thing on my to-do list is to make other Knicks fans more miserable. I'm trying to figure out the best way forward like everyone else, saving myself and others from more misery. The policy I recommend and try to follow is to agree to disagree, admit you could be wrong, and don't take anything personal.

A couple days ago I explained why I thought Mike Budenholzer is not a good fit in the coaching thread. After that I saw a new article on Twitter about Mark Jackson and linked to that. After that I was banned for trolling because some people could not take a different perspective seriously. That is not how the Knicks forum should operate and for the most part doesn't. Everyone should feel free to express their opinions no matter how strongly others disagree. If your goal is to eradicate jokes or opinions that don't fit your narrative, I don't think this is the right place for you. The aim of a discussion forum is not to achieve uniform agreement on controversial topics in order to make everyone comfortable. If an opinion poll goes 100% towards your preferred option, that is not a reason to celebrate, it means the forum is broken because it doesn't reflect the diversity of opinion that actually exists. There will always be significant disagreement and the last thing that needs to be protected by moderators are majority opinions which are in no danger of being bullied into silence.

I just want to strongly urge everyone to end this kind of mob mentality/personal grudge way of handling things because it damages the Knicks forum which has been one of the most tolerant and fun sports forums on the internet. There's always going to be unpopular positions taken, people you don't like, jokes you're offended by, and that's really what makes the forum alive. Being annoyed with someone doesn't mean they are trolling, the problem could be a lack of tolerance for other perspectives. RealGM Lifehack: If you don't want to read someone's opinions you can hide their posts, you don't need to accuse them of having bad intentions, trying to bait you, or report them because of some unfounded suspicions you have. At least that's my opinion. This is my last post, let's agree to disagree and keep it moving. Please don't report this.

No idea. Just saw his post in the community thread when he made it, and that was it. Actually sent him a PM telling him not to go...but alas, he left.

Didn’t he get suspended for wanting Trey Burke to start? Maybe we should get Jackson.

No one is going to get banned for wanting Mark Jackson no matter how much crap we give them

Their Burke fixation turned them into a Frank troll which made no sense and he was called out for it many times so that was where they generated a loss of goodwill probably

Still, it sounds like they left after a suspension which is different than being permanently banned


He'll be back.

It was sad to watch that decline. Dude went all in on Trey Burke like he was Jordan.

no. he left on his own.


I should add...he never did anything ban worthy that I know of. He just wouldn't let the Trey thing go. If it was an act or a joke...he played it off very well.
