You ARE the wind beneath our wings. Now where that wind comes from????? ;)

Back on topic - the Ray Rhodes napkin joke was one of my favorites years ago.

Who was that guy that came on here with that story about Hass and big Walt in Vegas and crazy times?

Hahaha...after his first magical drive against the Bills I posted on FB "Man, I'd totally have Russell Wilson's baby". I don't think my friends will ever look at me the same again

I miss Reader Dave periodically sending me news about idiotic sports and/or ferret-related happenings.

Or getting ripped a new one for bitching about the whole 'Should've taken Jackson instead of Tubbs' thing.

Edit to Add: Oh, I think my record times for receiving personal e-mail describing just how much of an asshole I was -- The rant on what a whiny cvnt Eli Manning was for his draft day shenanigans. How did I forget that? I need to care more.

The Giants fan who got emotional when he tried to troll us, that was funny as hell to me! We were suppose to get mad, but he ended up getting mad.

Seriously, has anybody fessed up to that, or was that guy legit? Either way, we need him back here NOW! Probably the greatest impact with the fewest posts of any member in the history of message boards.

I remember the whole Kingdome Karleesimo episode pretty well. I actually thought it was a bit silly for Aros to be so serious in calling him out at the time, but now it appears that he pays annual visits to the Bears' boards to tell them how they're gonna beat the 'Hawks that year. Muppet.


There was a very good reason that in all my 10 years of owning and running NET that I only called out - and banished - one member once like I did Kingdome Karleesimo. He was a traitor from the start and I instantly saw through him. It disgusted me to the point of banishing him forever. The first and last time I would ever do something like that given he was a --ahem-- "Seahawks fan".

Haven't regreted the decision ever since, nor will I ever.

I never knew he was. I thought he was a clown, but that's about it. So was he just a wolf in sheep's clothing? How did you find out Aros? I've seen a few fans that were like that. I had quite a few fans here tell me that I was obviously not a Seahawks fan and was just here posting to start stuff, because I mainly just vented my frustration in the gameday forum because I had nobody else to watch the games with. I kind of got the idea that it was a real time gripe session and cheer session. Sort of like what you'd do with your buddies at the game as far as cheering and mouthing off.

Then I got "set straight" really quick when I believe it was 3 girls who joined the board in succession. They were nice enough, and really sincere hawk fans. They did like to point out their special seats and how they spent all kinds of cash on Seahawks things. Then they patrolled the gameday forum and I can recall seeing Josh Brown kicking it off to the 15 and the guy caught it on a full sprint. I posted something like "Come on Brown... field position is killing us!" Then I got this super long lecture from both of them about what a great guy Josh was, and how I had no idea what it meant to be a fan, and if I wasn't going to support the team, then perhaps I should find somewhere else to go or some other team to root for. I was sort of stunned. This continued for the majority of the season on any road game. I would only go into gameday on home games, because I knew they'd be attending the games. They just spent the whole game calling out everybody who said anything negative in there. Then we'd score a TD and they'd post, "How come Sharkhawk isn't posting about that awesome TD?!" I was always a bit flummoxed. I said I was usually celebrating after a TD doing my TD dance and whatnot, but nothing I could do was right in their minds.

Then of course their boyfriends got into it and just started fighting with me. I have no idea why, but it seemed to center on the fact that I was posting things that bothered their girlfriends. I'd have to say that was some pretty dark time in .NET history. Not because I disliked them or anything else. I just think they had difficulty recognizing what the gameday forum had always been, always will be, and why it disappears after a few days. I wasn't posting that stuff in the main forum. I was just going with the flow during the game.

I'm pretty sure KBowen was legitimate. Such an unfortunately short-lived stay here - his posts were all epic. Or mannnnnnnnnnnn, or rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, whichever. As I recall, he became such an overnight sensation that he completely freaked out when we all, en masse, responded with hilarity and enthusiasm. Not sure it really translated the way it should have.

Golden moments, for sure, though.

Kbowen was legit. I did some Internet research and found he was Chinese living in China mainland.

I just wondered how he came up with the name KBowen and was native Chinese. I remember somebody saying his IP address checked out and such at the time. It just seems like a totally average name, particularly in Utah hick towns where we have a bunch of guys with the last name Bowen or Boren. I've known quite a few, so I just figured it was some guy out here in the mountain west goofing off, but he hadn't thought it out and used his real first initial and last name. Very very interesting. To reach legendary status with so few words. I think the same thing Sailor says... that he thought we were giving him crap, when we were being really encouraging to him to talk Hawks with us and we'd get through it. Les even said he reached out to him through PM and tried to get him to post more, but he seemed pretty mad at us and thought we were mocking him. I was totally loving what he was saying and thought it was cool. LOFA IS RRRRRRRRRRRRR. HASS IS MANNNNN!!! MAKER MY WORDS!!!!

I loved all of those sayings, and I would have loved to have made them into t-shirts. Seriously. Not because they were make-fun-of-worthy, but because they were just cool.

My all time favorite .net moment was the day I said....


FINALLY......THE TABS HAS COME BACK TO SEAHAWKS.NET!!!!!!!!!!


Ah, that felt good!

A close second all-time favorite moment was constantly explaining why Matt Hasselbeck was an average quarterback. It's been so much fun watching Russell Wilson validate everything I said about him. Wilson hasn't even finished his rookie season, and he's already the best QB in franchise history.

It's great to be back posting again.

I remember that dude. Left here and started posting on SeahawkSal. I don't think they liked him much either. NewYawk went at it with him. NewYawk was eventually banned because he teed off on everyone.

I think this board and SeahawkSal had some sort of homosexual rivalry. I never got into it.

newyawkseahawk had an issue with Sal's site and left the site in a huff and hasn't been heard from again.
Not sure if Steve Harper posts anymore but know that he still goes to Seahawks games.

Raider Jon,,,,,,,,,who among other things was Kitsapguys favorite poster. Bruce at the time was the lead administrator here and he and Ray-Duh Jon had several humourous adventures. Bruce might have called them humourless.

RJ once made the statement "If the Seahawks beat the Ray-Duhs I will give Pithy a sponge bath"

We won that game but I don't think we've ever heard from him again. :D

Once when delivering bagels to Sacred Heart Medical Center at 4:30am I noticed on the inside door of the elevator, "Raider Jon was here".

creepy to the max

He used to send me PMs all the time asking how to insert images, change fonts, insert hyperlinks, etc. Not sure why he did that but after the 10th time I just stopped replying.

He also didn't get my humor - thought I was a drug addict.

Justin Minne isn't kidding either, his first avatar was him riding a 4 wheeler. He and I got pretty well acquainted through the years. He lived with his Grandparents for a while in a little town on the Canadian border and I used to kid him about it.

Geez Justin even I wasn't so old then. hahahahaha

Such are the people that built this place in the early days.

Safety Cat... Ha ha


That was the original thought, but by the end we were all 99.9% sure Safety Cat and Danger Mouse were different people. Quite a few of my friends met Safety Cat at board get togethers (they'd have a national meeting for a weekend once a year) and Safety Cat appeared at a few in a row, and it was easy for them to tell that they were entirely different people.

As far as people talking about Steve Harper. He's still around. He's gotten in on the Facebook groups now. We have one for all of us who used the Seahawks Usenet group (many of us have been there for about 20 years). Steve was never a usenet user, but has decided recently to take over the usenet group and start the same dumb fights. I left that group, but people showed me how to block him. He just seemed interested in picking fights with me. The Usenet group is more just a place where all of us old friends from the early 90's and on have kept up since many of our ISP's don't carry newsgroups at all anymore, and it's a pain to use them through google. So... we keep in touch through Facebook.

I guess the Hawks official site did some nice article on Steve recently though. I didn't read it. I heard it was good. He just likes to get right down to it when discussing the team. There isn't really much room for discussion. He states his point and if you don't agree then you've kind of missed the point of his post. He isn't much into discussing. He's more like a sportswriter who states their point and would prefer that you don't respond. I think he'd be really happy if his posts were always just locked. Sort of like Rick Reilly's deal with ESPN. He's the only writer there that doesn't have comments at the end. He has a clause in his contract that makes it so that ESPN can't put comments from users at the end, he can't be questioned, called out, etc. Some folks prefer the one way discussion. That's fine with me, but if that's all they want, they should really create their own blog and see if anybody reads it I think. Discussion boards are fun because we get to discuss things.

Justin Minne isn't kidding either, his first avatar was him riding a 4 wheeler. He and I got pretty well acquainted through the years. He lived with his Grandparents for a while in a little town on the Canadian border and I used to kid him about it.

Geez Justin even I wasn't so old then. hahahahaha

Such are the people that built this place in the early days.

:les:


I remember when he outed himself as being like a junior high or early high school student on the board. I was blown away, because his posts showed so much more depth and knowledge than a lot of the stuff I was reading. He has a great mind and is an excellent writer. I wasn't impressed just because he was young, I was always impressed with his writing and great write-ups on things, but then finding out he was so young just made it that much more impressive and really took away a lot of our excuses for "lazy posting"!

I wonder how many PM's you've sent Les. That would be an interesting stat in the history of .NET. I bet you must have set a record in the days following Super Bowl XL. I can remember you talking me off the ledge so to speak a few times when I'd just get so darn angry, and you were there to keep me positive and let me vent my anger, but to remember that if I didn't follow the rules I was hurting the mods, because you guys were working your tails off as it was. I think that's when it started to "click" with me that I had to start being nicer and that we all represent our team and our fanbase and how others view us. Hopefully I've been nicer since then, and I thank you for committing so much of your time to let us all have our gripe sessions over the years. I wonder how many Steelers trolls got banned those weeks. I can remember Todd's warnings and they were very fair and right there on page 1. Anybody who couldn't read it and understand why it was put in place right after that abysmal game and post NFL ridiculousness deserved to get punted.

Whatsyourprob, the troll of trolls in my opinion.


He used to send me PMs all the time asking how to insert images, change fonts, insert hyperlinks, etc. Not sure why he did that but after the 10th time I just stopped replying.

He also didn't get my humor - thought I was a drug addict.



You should have asked for receipes in return. Mark was a CIA trained chef.

(That's Culinary Institue of America for you untrained)

I used to laugh when his wife would lock him out of the computer room and she would post for a while. He was proud of his American Indian Heritage tho sadly I don't remember what tribe. For the most part he was a good guy, but could get pretty fired up about Seahawks.

PMs?

I've said many times Jon that I have sent more PMs than I have posts through the years.

Proud to say I've met some darned nice people that way.

That's crazy Les. So we're talking probably 20,000? You'd probably have a really interesting book if you put them all together. :)

My all time favorite .net moment was the day I said....


FINALLY......THE TABS HAS COME BACK TO SEAHAWKS.NET!!!!!!!!!!


Ah, that felt good!

A close second all-time favorite moment was constantly explaining why Matt Hasselbeck was an average quarterback. It's been so much fun watching Russell Wilson validate everything I said about him. Wilson hasn't even finished his rookie season, and he's already the best QB in franchise history.

It's great to be back posting again.


Ah shit... there goes the neighborhood. :34853_doh: Time to shut the place down...


Judging by the lack of response TABS has received in this thread, we don't have too many old timers reading this thread. Had to do a double take. What's next? Steve Harper? Not surprising that TABS favorite .Net moments are himself telling people things. ;)
