FREE PALADIN !!
« on: April 02, 2016, 03:21:33 PM »
Those who also post on AGS may have been following the post created by Paladin.  This is the link:


http://www.anygivensaturday.com/showthread.php?180637-YSU-site-Football-discussions


If you read his comments, you realize that he is a fan of both YSU and Ytown, but is a critical thinker who is unafraid to express both positive and negative opinions.  IMO, he is well informed and offers a unique perspective, and was an a$$et to this forum.

I hope the Paladin ban is lifted.  Diversity of opinion is a strength.  Remember...groupthink led to the Bay of Pigs invasion....and who wants that to happen again?  ;)

There is a Non YSU Sports and General B.S. Section on this forum for topics. This topic has nothing to do with athletics. Dan gave Paladin plenty of chances it wasn't like he wasn't warned..End of story !!

In other words, you want him back?  :D

It's too bad Paladin is so over-the-top negative and such an abrasive idiot.
This blog could use a good protagonist.

idk.  I do miss his insight on this board.  he used to research each recruiting cla$$ of every MVFC team and give good analysis.  AGS gets old fast.

He always seemed to pump the others up and tear us down as I recall. He made it sound like the MVFC out-recruited mid-tier Big 10, while we got beat by SW Idaho State Prep Community College.

I don't miss his abrasive nature at all, but I did agree with some of what he said.

He did say that other MVFC teams outrecruited us, but he was accurate.  Look at our MVFC record since the JT era.  Paladin was trolled relentlessly and obsessively, and yea, could be edgy himself as well, but not to the extent he got from others.  One obsessed poster attacked Paladin in his signature line.  Paladin was particularly abrasive when trolling Akron and can't sites and praising YSU, but the mob here doesn't care about those facts.

Never "met" anybody quite like Paladin.  Claimed to be a YSU fan, but NEVER had a good word to say about anyone or anything a$$ociated with YSU.  Every YSU recruit was terrible; every other MVFC recruit was great.  Nothing in the Mahoning Valley was worth anything.  As I recall, he measured football recruiting success by the number of FL players you signed since it was as far away from the MV as you could get  east of the Miss.
He was SO NEGATIVE and SO ABRASIVE that we should let sleeping dogs lay.  Some of you note here that the blog would be served with a protagonist and I agree, but not Paladin.

You've got it right.  I was sick of his "I only", and "only I" speak the truth" crap.
Leave the SOB on the bench.
