Did you actually say that race may be the reason Winston hadn't been named the starter yet?
What I said was that RACE may play a factor with SOME not wanting Winston to beat out Coker for the QB postion. Talking about the people on the boards. I didn't say ALL, I said it MAY be a factor for some. (please get that which I just said.)
I also said that being a black guy... I found NO ISSUE WITH THAT SENTIMENT if people felt that way.
People took that and ran crazy with it.
I understand that race is a touchy subject for some.. but not for me. I can talk about it objectively. They made it sound like I was calling posters Ku Klux Klan members or something and that was so far from the truth.
I live in the South and the South is the South. It was a realistic opinion. Was it accurate? Dunno. I haven't taken a Survey.
QB is the one position that's different to people. It's the Figurehead of the team.
It wasn't a big deal to me to say it... I'm comfortable talking about anything.
The real reason That people were upset with me is become some of the BIG time posters who think they know it all and talk smugly to everyone.. Tried to Trash me and I gave it right back and gave it harder than they did.
They ran to the Mods I'm sure because I went from a no name poster one day to Arguably the most noticeable poster on the boards in 5 days.
I didn't break the rules.. I just stood my ground. Then Dot tried to Flex on me. I didn't budge. I didn't disrespect him, but He ain't gonna punk me in real life or on a message board because he's Dot.Com
I told him that his Warchant Report seemed Fake. That he didn't seem sincere as he was saying what he was saying.. And that He got housed by DC.
The next day, We got conflicting reports about Winston's Spring Practices... And I heard Cameron say At Times, Winston looked better in practice than he looked on Saturday. So I started a thread saying that. It's still on the Boards.
Well, People came in and started to see that Dot was saying one thing about Winston being more up and down and downplaying his Spring as not being as good as Trickett's Spring Until the Spring Game. Which was supporting Dot's point of view During his Mini Warchant Report when He was still saying he thought Trickett held the advantage going into Pitt.
As we know, Trickett announces and Dot seems Butt Hurt and comes in the thread I made about Cameron trying to cry about people making it seem that he was making up false reports... When All I was saying was that There were other sources just as credible as him saying the opposite of what He was saying about Winston and that We didn't know who to believe and who most would believe would be the person who supported the QB they wanted the most. -
His Whole Point of view is now gone out the window. Even with his column he wrote today.. He's still trying to play up the PITT angle.
I just didnt know that he was so emotionally Fragile..
DC and I have corresponded back and forth and I know some may not care for him but he's 10 times better than DOT.
Anyway, RickyRossi blew up on the Boards because I was screaming about the Winston Hype since Saturday and people were taking notice and things I was saying were making sense.
Honestly... Because I stood my ground and could go toe to toe with others with articulated facts, it upset some people who thought I didn't have enough cred to talk as much as I did. If people wouldn't have became so pissed off, I wouldn't have said so much.. but if you tell me to shut up... I'm gonna keep talking and talking just to piss you off.
But I go to the bathroom after I posted what I posted to Dot about his Performance.. Come back.. And I was Blacklisted. I can read but I can't post on the boards.
I went and got my credit card and joined up over here.
Look, I'm not gonna be vocal really over here. I just wanna read Nole information. I'm not a bad guy... Not racist.. I'm just a passionate Nole fan who when I get challenged, I don't back down.
I just wanna Chill and read about FSU.
That's the WHOLE story.
"Ward, Weinke, Winston = WINNERS"
Thanks for giving us a shot, Rick. I celebrate your whole collection.
And from now, whenever you post, this is how I imagine you..

Except I'm about 5'9 and 220 pounds. Picture Devonta Freeman, but Bigger Shoulders, and played Division 1 Basketball and No dreadlocks but much more handsome.
That would be me. And I've heard nothing but good things, Sir. I had just been so used to Warchant that it was a habit.
But Dot, Turned me off.
It's like My tattoo guy. You screw up one of my tats.. You lose my business forever.
I won't be renewing with Rivals.
It will be nice to get information first for a change.
Bottom line is you are here now. We have a lot of great members that have the same story as you.
Welcome to your new home and if you have any questions about the site, don't hesitate to ask.
Ricky, come on, you did more than all that.
But, it don't make no nevermind.
At any rate, I didn't get banned, but I re-upped over here. I am just so sick of a few things over there. Most of my friends live in fake fear of being banned because the owner doesn't like what they post.
Fair enough. Thought I'd ask and clear it up.
Clear what up?
