Glad you didn't try to wiggle your way out of this news tip.
.... where is the info?
Wiggles, I respect that you may have insider info, but launching a thread like this with no details is really counter-productive.
Please provide some info to support your claim, or next time wait until you have something you can share before posting.
Oh wow, Gores was at the game. What a surprise. Last post for me. Try and do something nice for the fans and they complain. I'm not a reporter. I can't post a story on Mlive or anything elses. Finalizing a few hundred million dollar deal doesn't happen as fast as you buy your Mc Donald's.
What exactly did you do for the fans?
My request wasn't unreasonable. Don't spread or start rumors you can't substantiate or provide ANY details about.
OK Wiggs, we give you 7 days but we need to hear some really big rumors. Of a sale.
He taught the fans how a drama queen handles criticism.
It is no big deal Wiggles. I'm sure you didn't mean any harm and were just excited.
But when you post something big like that, you need to at least site your source. With unsubstantiated information like that, I think you could have just posted it in this thread started two months ago by basketbills. Then it would have been forgotten right away.
The way you posted it was misleading even though you did use "unconfirmed" in your thread title.
It kind of cheapens the place. You see that kind of stuff in other forums that are below the standard Rascoe attempts to cultivate here.
But sometimes people offer constructive criticism around here, and if you are going to be bold enough to post a thread like the one you did, without anything to back up your claim, you need to be prepared for the backlash if it doesn't come to fruition.
In other words, you didn't mean any harm...don't assume anyone else did.
Correct if I'm wrong but this thread was originally titled "Sold". Someone can in and added "Unconfirmed".
But if Wiggs says something only his source would recognize then his source could blame Wiggs. So maybe Wiggs is using jurist-prudence.
Wow Darth, very nicely written. I knew there was some good inside you somewhere.
He can't/ shouldn't name his source.
I'm guessing the deal is in the works. Things like this do take time... especially when there's only one buyer (no competitive pressure forcing them to hurry).
There have been so many anonymous "inside source" claims that have turned out to be wrong or later denied about trades and the sale that it's hard to give it credence.
Obviously we are closer than we ever have been with this so hopefully something will happen soon.
I added unconfirmed so people weren't mislead. And we waited a week for some more information to materialize, but it didn't.
I'm just trying to keep things real around here. Appreciate insider info, but there actually has to be some info to go with the insider.
Monthly membership to Insider info costs $6.95 per month dontcha know?
Bout time you earned your "Forum Leader"
he's the only one here who gets a pension....
My eyes aren't so good. When I first read your statement, I thought you said "He's the only one around here that went to prison."
See, I have insider information too.
That was just for going through a Wendy's drive thru.....
Wait, are you trying to tell me RASCOE went through the Wendy's drive through without stopping???
I call B. S.
Can you provide a link to your source?
You guys are funny as hell.
Thanks for lighting up my day.
