This is the place I go to daily for all of my Orioles news and analysis. I post very little but I read the board continuously throughout the day. I have learned a lot about the Orioles, baseball, football, music, and even life in general from this board. I found this site back in 2005/early 2006 and I never looked back. I have no problem spending the little bit of money each year to post on here if I would like. In fact, as I was going through a divorce a couple years ago and money was tight, I cancelled my membership. Once money was good again, I signed back up.
That?s not to say that I don?t look at or read any other sites as well. I have signed up for Chris?s board and I think I?ve posted 3 or 4 times. I still do read that board occasionally. I never got a PM about joining his site, but that?s most likely because I do not post enough or get into many discussions on the OH. I actually had heard about his board through Facebook and signed up a couple months ago.
I have read both board?s thoughts and responses on what had happened with Stoner, Tony, SG, Scottie, etc. I will only say that I do not have a problem with any of them. I have never met Chris before, but I have enjoyed the work he has done. I have met SG a couple times and I had just bought my girlfriend a ring from him (although I haven?t given it to her yet!!). I have never had a problem with him either, although I could see how some people would get offended by his ?tone? and remarks. I have met Tony at least once (maybe twice at Hangout nights) and he seemed like a very nice guy. As far as I know, I have never met Scottie either, but I have enjoyed his posts and he seems like a good guy also.
I guess what I?m trying to say is that I am going to continue to do what I?ve been doing. I will post occasionally. I will not be getting into message board arguments. I will do my best to not offend anyone. I will read the message board constantly. I will continue to hope for a winning baseball season in Baltimore.
