"The Horrible Thing Recte Did"

Post by recte44 » Sun Aug 21, 2016 6:29 pm

organized by Brian the Stunt Bum, on the story of the immortal Mike Fitterer (aka, Fitt or FittDog)

This is part of an email that FITT sent Recte:
Off Topic
You are a dick, and I will be taking over half the league with me in leaving
the league and starting a new one. Every single owner knows there is a
clique in this league, and that if you have anything to say against anyone
in that clique then you are on your way out. I was talking to some of the
owners that have stated they have had run ins with the "clique" in other
leagues (these people will rename nameless) and they said basically they
were told that they shut it or get the f@ck out. What a great way to run a
family oriented league eh Matt? I love the league dearly. But at the same
time its almost not worth the fight, because of the clique. You need
realize this, every owner that came into the league and convinced themself
to give me a clean slate, has no problem with me, and has got along fine
with me. I can name every owner who has gotten into it me, and they all are
in this clique. We can start with you, who in your time running the league,
has not done a good job, frankly the league will suffer without Stunt at the
helm, and he didnt leave because of me, he left because of "YOU" and your
methods of running the league. people would ask a question about something
in the constitution and you'd be like I dunno....Its your league man, you
made the rules, how much faith do owners have in a commish who doesnt even
know his own rules. I know Squizzie got out because of you, and he said he
wont come back until you are gone. Stunt, left because of you. Now I did
have influence in DRaven, Rainey, Bibs, SteinR leaving, but you know what, I
never once picked a fight with them, they always started it, yet were they
banned, suspended or chastised? Same with Brad, he owns you, has you on a
chain, im sure a good deal of this has to do with him. I know Jon Lyons
doesnt particularly like me, same with JQ, Joshuaaa, but if you get aside
from that list, can you really name another owner who dislikes me? There
are more owners here that dont like you then me. And yet you blame me for
this, when its really your fault for running things incorrectly.
Oh, and Draven took over his team and posted this line in team news
Off Topic
Birmingham's ownership group is excited to bring Bartlett aboard and hopes that he'll bring with him a bit more fiscal responsiblity than the Bandits displayed under Fitterer's leadership.
to which FITT PMed him
Off Topic
You make me roffl you idiot. You are saying im fiscally irresponsible? Whose the one who just went and added tons of payroll, and wont even be able to sign their 1st rounder next year because they are gonna be in the red so much. Good job DUMBASS!
I hate you assholes for driving away the one good thing in these leagues.

Clique came up a couple weeks back in the other league. I spent the better part of the day reading league back story - very enjoyable.

Curses on GUBA for swiping your output.

I decided I'm going to gun for a pen in the logo this year. I'll make sure my productivity at work feels the brunt rather than the MBBA, though.

It's a great idea. Not sure how much of a PITA it'd be to implement, though. I still plan to do my end of year PP awards so that at least is some semblance of bragging rights.

I thought we're not supposed to use that word around here... the first rule of Monty or something like that.

Nothing but love for GUBA, except when people like Afino call it "the B league". Never understood what his beef with me was. Oh well.

I've assumed the leagues were once one and split at some point (with maybe the TMBU branching off at the same time - maybe)? Always wondered what the story was there.

LOL.

Outside of the five guys on this list, and Brad, and you, and the four guys who left the league because of me, who else in this league really doesn't like me?! Jeez, that's like nearly 1/3 of the league that can at least tolerate me, so obviously you are the reason I'm having all of these disagreements with different people [it certainly isn't me or my personality]

If it makes you feel better, our forums are drastically better looking than the GUBA ones - they hurt my eyes.

One thing I love is how it allows you to click a sub-forum and that resets the "new posts" flag without you having to open every individual new post in the sub-forum. If that is something you can do over here as well I'd love to know, but I've tried tons of settings and haven't found the magic one yet.
