    This makes up for all of these years in turmoil we've just experienced.

    No surprise he wins the butt kisser of the year award. This is why they still refer to him as a hard nosed defensive grinder.

    I fully expected to see Rick Astley when I clicked on the link. What a letdown.

    We need a @BillLaimbeer@BillLaimbeer support group for people he has savaged emotionally in this forum community. We can be stronger together. He goes low, we will go high!

    Thanks, but I think I just need to go through my PMs to get a feel for the size of the victim community!

    I could always email Darth too, but he has been AWOL since I told him to stop being mean to Vince.

    Well Ernie, I don't get your main complaint or a particular direction that this might expand into further explanation.
    I, for one, take a balancing eye toward Exit, Voice and Loyality (http://www.thesocialcontract.com/pdf/four-four/hirschma.pdf).
    Stan deserved this award and it was one given within his peers.
    I have had (and probably will continue to have) disagreements about particulars of certain personal quirks that breathe thru his pores.
    I would assume that his wife and my wife might have much in historical commons. It is, what it is.
    But, for sure: in the end, everything touched (and all respond to touch) is an accepted way of the good common.

    Set up a poll maybe.

    The forum upgrade before the last one worked. How can you back off that change?

    Clickers always wins. Clickers has been poisoning the well for several years now.

    If only I knew then what I know now.

    Winning the butt kisser of the year award does provide Stan with a certain level of job security, along with the prestige of the award.

    I fully expect SVG to stand up a little straighter as he's yelling at Andre next year.

    It's tough watching young men (and I use the latter advisedly) like SJ and Dre lash out when they cannot emotionally process reality.

    You pray that they figure it out before they become fruit farmers in Serbia.

    Did someone lash out? I don't see it.

    I was going to make an edgy response that probably only @Mogilny@Mogilny would get, but decided better of it.

    Yeah, SJ is totally calling out the boss. Because OBVIOUSLY that's the best move for his career right now. LOL

    Things will really get out of hand if Van Gundy tweets back a picture of the butt kisser of the year award.

    I thought it was a little awkward grammatically.
