OK, now I'm gonna wait for you to quit.............he stands tapping his foot......waiting for the end of Wides' posting career........in the background is the haunting tune of the "waiting for them to write the answer" music on Final Jeopardy............waiting...........waiting..... his foot tapped the floor more quickly and with less patience........oh heck, he ain't gonna quit.

quiting because they don't put u in the HOF is the most ridiculous thing that i've ever seen. It a site to talk about football and have fun, not to see who can post more than everyone else and get a label by there name.

If u stop posting because of that then u should have never started because u were posted for the wrong reason.

There is probably a catch.

I worked in the receipts section of PSD Norfolk as a PN...and we would get these guys straight out of boot camp. In their dress uniform...just off the plane...just smiling...checking into their new command...The first question was always...
"so when do I get my sign-up bonus?"
And I would say out loud to the 10 people in my office...
"hey 'yall...shipmate wants to know about his sign-up bonus"
And in unison....all of us would say ...to the tune of Dragnet...
"dumb,dumb,dumb,dumb..........dumb,dumb,dumb,dumb.. .duuuuuuuuuuuuumb"

They never read the fine print... The part that says...You get 25% of it upon completion of basic training...25% after completion of the initial enlistment...and the other 50% if you re-enlist...
Man you should have seen the looks on their faces...they already had the money spent...hahaha

They aren't gonna offer you anything that doesn't benefit the Navy as well as you...

Makes no sense wide?? Who really cares about being a HOF on a website come on??
I disagree. When I got up over 2K and didn't have any other levels to reach, my goal was to be accepted as a Community Veteran. The Hall of Famers can make changes to their level name, but all of us still carry Hall of Fame because it does mean something. When you have like 900 posters and only 19 are in the Hall of Fame, it's something you're proud of.

If I wasn't in the Hall of Fame right now, I'd be pestering the admins about being accepted with my peers. I didn't make a big fuss about it last year because the admins told me they were going to wait a while before letting more people in and it was April when they did it.

lonny23

Hey, there's plenty of drama around here! You get to see a part of people's lives and it's fun.

Wide is more knowledgeable than most of us, but his past trouble haunts him. If he gets in the Hall of Fame, then scores of people that come along after him will want to be forgiven and the admins lose some control over the board. It's just like if somebody posts all the time, they have to have a lot of substance to be a Hall of Famer because somebody else will come along and want to be in on the basis of posting a lot.

Unfortunately, times have changed. Most people, even in the old days, got to a point where they smarted off to older people, but most of us come back to having more respect. You can always stick around and be a mentor to the young guys. They'll remember the stuff you say. I try my best to say things to the younger guys when I get a chance.

Christie Brinkley never quit because she was always HOT! She's like the model of what we all want wives to look like in their 40's.

Sure it is. We all want to be recognized for stuff and I don't blame him. He does need to be aware of his circumstances, though.

I do think it's childish to quit because you can't get in, though. I was determined to keep posting until they let me in as a Community Veteran because I figured they eventually would. I was in the Hall of Fame after the board crashed.

I agree....this is a board meant for high school football....and Wide's complaining there are 16 year olds on it....
Hey, it goes with the territory. He knows there will be a lot of young guys on here. He has plenty of old guys around, too.

quiting because they don't put u in the HOF is the most ridiculous thing that i've ever seen. It a site to talk about football and have fun, not to see who can post more than everyone else and get a label by there name.

If u stop posting because of that then u should have never started because u were posted for the wrong reason.
Don't say that. He was here because he loves the game. He also has fun talking to a lot of us and he has a cool website, too. The board does have a different dynamic than it used to and the biggest change in the last couple of years is that we have a lot more posters. It's not a small community anymore and you have new guys popping up everywhere.

out of that list me and cc57 are the only kids on there, it feels pretty cool to be respected by an adult, espically when your a teen
Scooter is only 22 or maybe 23. You knew Redskins wasn't going to be on there because he's been the whipping boy for disrespect. I still don't know what he did to get on a few people's bad side. I'd like to know.

It was good for you that he recognized you. You seem to try to learn stuff, though.

the guy who wants to quit because he didnt make the hall of fame respects your opinion so that means what to you ?????

I dont think i have ever heard of anyone quitting because they didnt make the HOF ? I have heard of people extending their careers but never quitting to avoid the HOF. - barry sanders maybe ?
Hey, it's always a good thing when somebody recognizes you. I want to be recognized by people, too. Affection is part of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. Even I want to be recognized on this board. That might be part of Wide's problem. New guys come in and don't recognize the veterans as much as some of the older guys. I've been around here since 2003 and some of the guys have been here longer than me. Dragons08 came here pretty much this year and if people start recognizing him as the voice of the board, feelings are going to get hurt. I always looked to the guys who were Community Veterans as people who had a lot of knowledge about the game and they were the forum leaders.

Barry Sanders quit because the Lions didn't do more to help him succeed. He should've kept playing instead of being a quitter. Emmitt wasn't going to quit and that's why he deserves the rushing record. He kept playing and probably could've gotten to 20,000 yards if he didn't shut it down.

wide i enjoy your post, but be serious. you claim to know so much about football, but did ya forget that players are voted into the HOF after playing for years and retiring. in other words, ya gotta put the time in, not just the post. i've been through a couple of format changes and lost my numbers every time. they may be low now, but they used to be a lot higher.
Maybe he's retiring so he can be put in the Hall of Fame! :p

If that doesn't work, he'll crash the board and come back as a Hall of Famer!

After further review....I have decided to stay.
ktchamp97 PM'd me...and I have come to my senses. (clear your inbox kt...I tried to respond but couldn't)

I've just been working a lot lately and my patience is wearing thin with the omnipotent youth on this board.

I am gonna try a new approach. Hopefully it will work.
What's the new approach?

You can't get rid of the kids. WE'RE TALKING ABOUT HIGH SCHOOL!

Roger that...what's on the agenda tonight?
Jessica Simpson ...dumb or not dumb?
The absolute suckdom that is aggy?
Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush...lovers?
Why Theismann changed his name?
Aikman making a comeback? ....Please Troy ...settle down dude.

Jessica Simpson is hot. Who cares if she's dumb.

Hey, the Ags took out their frustration today. I guess they just hate orange!

Whatever works for USC!

So he could try for a Heisman, THAT HE DIDN'T WIN! Then again, they gave it to John Crapaletti in a sympathy vote.

What has Aikman said for you to make that comment?

10-16-2005, 08:24 AM
There was a story going around in the media last week...that Troy might be thinking about a comeback?
Why the hell would he do that?
Maybe he's got the itch to come back because the Cowboys have an offense for the first time since he retired.

10-16-2005, 08:26 AM
Probably just a rumor...I hope.

Oh...TexasFrog told me that the Navy is paying 100,000 reenlistment bonuses for certain rates.... :eek:

Could Wide be thinking of a comeback? hmmmmmmmmm....
I don't know shipmate...it's tempting.
Speaking of a glutton for punishment. I joined the Air Force knowing I was leaving Navy money on the table. I think the Army was giving up to $60K a few years ago. Now, they want Air Force people. It's not worth the money!

There is probably a catch.

I worked in the receipts section of PSD Norfolk as a PN...and we would get these guys straight out of boot camp. In their dress uniform...just off the plane...just smiling...checking into their new command...The first question was always...
"so when do I get my sign-up bonus?"
And I would say out loud to the 10 people in my office...
"hey 'yall...shipmate wants to know about his sign-up bonus"
And in unison....all of us would say ...to the tune of Dragnet...
"dumb,dumb,dumb,dumb..........dumb,dumb,dumb,dumb.. .duuuuuuuuuuuuumb"

They never read the fine print... The part that says...You get 25% of it upon completion of basic training...25% after completion of the initial enlistment...and the other 50% if you re-enlist...
Man you should have seen the looks on their faces...they already had the money spent...hahaha

If I learned one thing in the Navy...it's this
Nothing is free...
They aren't gonna offer you anything that doesn't benefit the Navy as well as you...
The Air Force does re-enlistment bonues where they give you some up front and then in yearly increments. I've never gotten a re-enlistment bonus from the Air Force.

They gave me a $2K bonus for staying Korea and extra year, but took it away when I got married to a Korean and was Command Sponsored. The Korean left me 2 years ago, so the bottom line is I stayed in Korea for 4 years to lose an extra $6K from the Air Force and no telling how much because I was married to her.

If I deploy again a few months after I get back from Kyrgyzstan, I'll take Air Forces $30K bonus tax-free.

he knows 75% more football than 90% of the board, but 90% of his posts were about .00075% football.
That's true. I see he has a bunch if posts and always wonder where they're at. They have to be in College Football and Pro Football because I spend less time there than anywhere on the board.

Just one question, Dragons08. You lived in Illinois, but you're in Texas before you've even gotten out of school. Why wouldn't you want to claim Texas? This is the best state and plenty of people want to move here and you say you're a Yankee? :confused:

I make enough now and looking at a potential retirement in the future, that it will take a LOT of money from the Air Force or somebody else to offer me to leave.

You know how they started fooling with retirement in 1980. Before a certain date in 1980, your retirement was 50% of final pay. From 1980-1986, they gave you 50% of the average of the last 3 years. After 1986, it was always 40% of the average of the last 3 years, but they came up with a new system a few years ago. They will offer you $30K at the 15-year mark and you stay with the 40% and lose 1% in cost of living every year of retirement until a one-time catch up at 62 and start losing the 1% again or you can decline the bonus and get the 50% and not lose any cost of living retirement raises.

They've always said you'll get 75% retirement if you stay until 30 years and that's probably what I'll do. I'll only lose some retirement pay for 12 years before I catchup and them lose some more until I die. The bonus catch for me is I don't want to pay $8K in taxes off the top and more on my yearly return. I'll take it if I get it tax-free, though.

They do some crazy stuff. I took the cash and ran understading I could NEVER go back on active duty...three years later I'm getting letter from AFMPC at Randolph asking if I want back in. They would let me pay back the $40,000 over 10 years. Hahaha...

At the time I got out, peace was breaking out all over the world...or so they thought...my wife was in the Canadian AF and she took an early pension at the same time I took the $$$. It covers the house payment. :)

Did they change that too?

lonny23

Did they change that too?
It's AFPC- Air Force Personnel Center. I worked right by there in Hangar 73.

They put Alaska Air Command in Pacific Air Forces in 1990. They merged Strategic Air Command, Tactical Air Command, and Military Air Command in 1992. It's now Air Combat Command and Air Mobility Command.

We have an Air Force Material Command, Air Force Special Operations Command, and Air Force Space Command. They still have United States Air Forces in Europe to go with Pacific Air Forces.

When I went to Basic, they taught us "New Airmen Will Get Sore Feet!" While that was true, it also stood for the Air Force organization. That changed, too. We still have Numbered Air Forces, but they don't have as much oversight as the past. We don't have many Air Base Wings and there aren't Base Commanders anymore. They basically have Wing Commanders as the Base Commander. We still have Groups, but they fooled with that, too. Squadrons and Flights still exist. The Logistics Group and Support Group are now the Mission Support Group. They basically have Maintenance Groups or Directorates at some bases.

They started all that before I got out. I was in Space Command and didnt really see any changes. Plus I was at an AF Station, so the Squadron commander was the base commander.
