    Don't have the time but I think it goes to J's recent thread on looking back at the rx,not only did shrink throw dirty under the bus for jman,but went from forward to reverse to make sure he was finished.

    Life goes on. The owner has made his decision.

    It has to be more than coincidence that Dirty and Pete quit at the same time, IMO !

    J, you say RX mods work at 1/4 salary.
    Doug, I hear you...and I will refrain from any comments pertaining to this matter.

    This has NOTHING to do with me though, and if anyone thinks it does they are just dreaming of ways to start shit.

    FTR It's no secret we don't like each other....and I'm well aware of the fact I am hated by many on the internet, I won't lose sleep over it, never have never will.

    And I stated many times I felt Dirty was a very good poster...I wish him well.

    This SUCKS

    General is one of the nicest/classiest people out there - met him a few times and if you have a problem with The General it is YOU who has the problem - not Pete

    Dirty - don't think i ever met him (At a party from Across the Street?) but we exchange IMs and all - bummer to see him leave as a Mod, too. If you know what kinda CRAP he has put up with in her personal life it is amazing he stays as calm as he does

    Bummer of epic porportions.

    Dirty = Don't think I ever planned more outings and endeavors with someone I never met. I will miss your candor and bluntness. But most of all I will miss the way you handle the chuckleheads. Best of luck to you and maybe still one day we will hit a game in ATL.

    General = Still hope for a chance to meet as well. What am I going to do without the opportunity to watch the TV stack grow up? I only had to get your help once on a dispute and albeit a small dispute, I admired the way you handled it with promptness. A class act IMO.


    FWIW my guess is Dirty is off to a career as a personal fitness trainer and the General will be installing Direct TV and repairing TV's


    Carry on Gents.

    Had the pleasure to meet them both at the Bash in Vegas 2 years ago, see them again in the Bahamas, and work with them for some time. Two great guys.

    Doesn't feel like I'm actually "saying goodbye" though, as they'll still be right there on my IM screen and the communication likely won't drop off too much.

    For now, I appreciate all of the well wishes very much. Welcome the new mods and congratulate them, while promising to continue in the transition as long as necessary. I'll continue to read from the posters about this separation of ownership (Yes, I am a minority owner) and then I will try and speak more on things (plans), but I assure you there is no hate nor ill wishes on anyone in my life currently. I'll be around. Again, I really appreciate the well wishes.

    Congrats to the new mods

    Dirty has to be the best moderator ever in forum history he really put alot of work in to this place. And there is not a nicer guy then the general.

    Hopefully another forum has made a great offer to them they could not refuse they would be major additions to any forum and make that forum major league.

    But best of luck to both of them in whatever their future's hold.

    Absolutely, it was a pleasure meeting them, two big guys with cool demeanors. The General is laid-back, has a dry sense of humor and Dirty is an upbeat funny guy, both fun to be around. Best Wishes to you both.

    It's good to read your well spoken response, The General.

    The General cracked me up talking about dog racing (his dog fell off the track, literally). He is reserved, but has a great dry sense of humor when he opens up.

    Good Luck to both General and Dirty. It's kind of awkward for a General to report to a Shrink but I guess this in not the military.

    I would like to thank the General for helping me when I got stiffed in the past from a bookie. His spinning of the wheels made the bookie pay me and I am very greatful.

    Hope you guys stick around and post. Good luck also to the new mods.

    As crazy an idea as it may be, I've always thought by posting here it would serve as some "insurance" against any potential slow-paying book I might encounter. That is, one some level, I trusted THE SHRINK and The General to be able to to have influence on my behalf.

    But in all honesty, no offense to the new mods, I've zero faith any of them have any experience or, especially, the reputation and history, of resolving disputes for players.

    And I now question THE SHRINK's reputation.

    This is sportsbetting in the US 2008..

    Players beware.

    Hey Guys... I just got home and skimmed through the posts... I am very humbled by the kind words. Had to take my son to the Dr in Atlanta today and just now trying to catch up. They go to bed at 9:30 and after that I will have a better response...

    All I ask is lets not turn this thread into a pissing match or about Jman or anyone else. It is about Us resigning from a Place we love and poured many hours into. I have made many good friends here and lets leave it at that for now.

    Wow big shake up........it feels like I"m the last to know. As long as they both are still here posting they are still part of this family.

    There's starting to be a trend with General.........everytime he makes over 50000 posts he leaves his post for something else.

    Pete you have my EMAIL give me a shout. General once as a mod at RX saved over 15k for me when a book pulled out and left the scene and I needed a book to offer a bailout. He worked his contacts found one for me, negocaited the terms, worked it out and it was perfect. He is that good. Man I really feel a loss if he is not a forum mod anymore. Just 2 days ago I posted that I go wherever The General goes in shrinks Thread! O man this is stunning. If I can help ya in any way let me know.

    And then there is Dirty....man Dirty what is up? No more contests with ya! Seems like things for you settled down a bit, i know things were not great for ya last Fall but you were going strong again? Man this is really a bad duo duo duo blow. Send me an email Dirty if you need anything.

    man this is crappy news to come home to tonight

    There are innumerable better forums to talk about any sport, or all sports,..

    trytrytry: your description of shady offshore book practices is exactly what I've been talking about in this thread.

    Do you think any of the new mods would be able to get you paid in a similar situation?

    Regarding sportsbook dispute... Lets be honest guys, when EOG/Ken *did* go to bat for someone, you had half the damn forum saying "the only reason you are doing this is to keep a certain image up".

    While I love Dirty and General to death, any "insurance" you had in disputes arose not from a certain mod talking on the phone to a certain book, but the power of publicity (good or bad) that this forum wielded.

    You think Microsoft is able to strong-arm developers because Bill Gates is just a real sweet guy to talk to on the phone?

    General Pyle and I have a long history of arguing on these forums, but I'd still say he is one of the top mods in history. Sorry to see ya go, General Pete. Dirty seems like a good guy as well and I've seen nothing but good from him. I've always been critical of the mods at these forums but I have a feeling that this place will go down-hill with the loss of these 2.
