its ok though, this is where Gene gets his information anyways
Not cool at all.

I want names !
Oh , Action Bronson posts on Noles247!
Oh and I agree with Action, stop posting info from here to other sites. Stop trying to be some message board insider fake.

Deserve got nothing to do with it...
Doesn't surprise me at all warchants sources revolve around stealing everybody else's info and throwing out the yearly mystery recruit that never happens. Place is garbage compared to here it's free advertising for 24/7 if they take it there anyways.
Another reason why I refuse to be a part of that site. Not even worth $1.95/mo.
Gotta get that board cred, it's super important
Gene/ML/Erie......my god I once thought they were gold.
I always just assumed that WC had a subscription to 247 and vice versa.
I actually read that name on Facebook before I read it here, but after seeing it here, it was an exact copy paste.
Does anybody on their boards ever call them out for that crap? People need to call them out right before they cancel their account, the stuff they're doing is pathetic.
When Bobby and company left so did Gene's sources. It's gone downhill every since then. The DC Hot Board over there hasn't been updated with any new names since last week. To make matter even worse, it's the exact same names that was listed on the DC Hot board before Stoops was hired and people over there are eating it up.
Go email DOT @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Goes both ways!!!
FWIW most of the posters completely called him out for it. The best part was where he said that he doesn't EVER come to 247 when I've seen him on here before.
The name is Freeman333
You get banned about 3 seconds after calling the idiots that run that sight out. How anyone believes what Gene says is beyond me. Guy is beyond worthless.
I flip around to both and was waiting for that to happen.
I believe freeman used to take info from WC and post it on the main board as well...been busted for doing this multiple times
Really appreciate you guys defending the work we do here.
Don't worry about it though, after the first year or so of it happening I stopped letting it bother me. It's going to happen and at worst it's like free advertising.
Look at it this way...if people didn't get excited about our work and post it other places, then that means we aren't doing a good job. It's not right and I don't like that it happens, but this won't be the last story we break. Plenty more where that came from.

Upvoted for having sensibilities the music, movie, software and book publishing industries STILL haven't figured out.
Freeman 333 was the user name.. So if the rumor is true that person is Gene then he "broke" the news over there on WC.. The thread has been deleted now
Like someone else said, Gene lost his sources when Bobby left. I have told this story on the mainboard.....
2 years ago I was bowling in the Jeff Cameron show bowling tournament and Gene and his team were in the lane next to us, so I asked him who he thought the DC would be. He said he didnt know, so then I asked about Stoops cause his name had been brought up a few days before. He told me he didnt think Stoops is a legitimate candidate and wouldnt be interviewed. A) It later came out Stoops had already been interviewed 48 hours prior to this conversation. B) Stoops was hired 24 hours later.
That will give you an idea of how much in the loop Gene is.
Gene and his lackeys read this board. People have been banned (on WC) for discussing things here that were mentioned over there.

Makes a lot of sense. They complained a lot about Jimbos media policy and not letting people in. I remember the first signing day of Jimbo that was covered a lot by the media. I remember Jimbo making a point that he knew there were people giving up info to the media (WC) and would be gone if he found that it was them. They have been shut out since then and really have complained about it. I decided to leave after last year where they wrote a story about how FSU was still the best team in the ACC after the Wake loss. I appreciate the objective view that this site provides. Not afraid to criticize or compliment FSU when it is necessary. Also like that a rumor is not locked immediately as if it was a threat to the mods cred.
