Yeah, it is Dodds.    Yeah, you have to read through it to get to the current stuff.    But there are some nice hints about Caedin in there.

My apologies.  The reference to Hamilton is in an answer to a question in the comments.  Paraphrasing the paraphrasing, the staff is pleased with his progress and think he could have contributed this past season if not red shirting.

Thanks for this. I read the recaps twice and couldn’t find anything about Hamilton. Thought I was somehow missed it!

Oops.  I read through it again after I posted and had my WTH, am I hallucinating moment.   Then I found it.

That's funny, there are no comments for me. But the whole site is broken with my layers of adblock, happens sometimes when sites run Admiral.

Good article. I could have done without the “tough to play on the opponent’s senior day” and Shaka thanked Wojo for recruiting Oso, Kam, and Stevie references. Have to be insecure to constantly try to justify past positions. Maybe we all do it.

Actually it’s pretty cool and speaks to Shaka’s character that he has consistently given credit to the prior staff for recruiting those guys.

The insecurity is really more from those who have a problem with it.

I have no problem with Shaka being gracious. The inability to admit the mistake of hoping that Wojo would be retained by using Shaka’s graciousness to give Wojo credit for the team’s current success is kind of lame IMO. If that’s the wagon you’re in, however, enjoy.

What are you even talking about? Literally no one shares this opinion.
Wojo deserved credit for bringing in 3 terrific players and it’s cool that Shaka has the humility to give Wojo those props when he certainly doesn’t need to. Nothing more.

I'm glad he recounted a story about Dick Vitale from 1979.  That was necessary.

You can take the payout, but it's based on dues paid compared to hours spent working by the mods during your time on the site. As a result, most members end up owing money, so the only payout goes straight to rocky and hilltopper.

Due to budget constraints, we only offer golden umbrellas.  They're the kind to top a tropical mixed drink.  Would you like me to mail that out ASAP?
