On that note, I'm so upset I don't live in Ohio anymore.  It was nice to think that my vote mattered.

Speaking of Ohio.... did you know WIS was founded in Cincinnati, OH by Tarek Kamil who developed Hoops Dynasty and actually cared about improving and continued development of this game when Fox Sports offered him a large sum of money to buy out the company and then  they appointed a guy named Seble to be in charge of the game who disappeared when Fox decided that this gold mine that they were sitting on was something to put on the back burner and rot while their other crappy games were improved?

Didn't Tarek stay on for awhile and run the game after the buyout?

Tarek used to drive me crazy...he found it impossible to apologize or admit an error

but hey, hurry and go sign up for Hardball dynasty.  Limited time only, $4.95.  Why bother marketing HD when there are maybe 2 games left in the MLB season and college basketball is just a few weeks off?   Epic fail

thats about the nicest way i could say it... he just took **** WAY too personally, like if the game was not perfect, we were calling him a failure, or something. (and yeah he was on for at least a couple years after the buyout and maybe more)

but yet he still added me as a friend on facebook, even after I started numerous threads calling him out.  However he ALWAYS responded even if he was in full defense mode.

Good luck with this guys.  The NBA SIM folks have been waiting YEARS to even hear from seble, yet alone get an update.  It's obvious that he and/or Fox don't give a rat's @ss about the site.  (and this comes from a long-time player who used to recruit people to the site)  It truly is sad what has happened to this once great site as far as product quality and especially customer service.

i mean, i did like the guy, i didnt mean to make it sound like i didnt. he made this game and i like it too. just that one attribute of him made you want to punch a hole in a wall...

It may be radical, and I wouldn't say I'm advocating it, however, the United States was formed based on John Locke's Social Contract Theory. In layman's terms, Locke states that if a government violates the rights given to it by the people, the people have a right to abolish it and start a new government.

I think that may be extreme at this point, however, I think the only way to stop us from spinning out of control is to STOP CAREER POLITICIANS. When your main goal is to be reelected, you aren't doing your job. If we could put term limits on Senate and House seats, we could make politicians concentrate on governing, not reelection. 

Of course, the people that would need to make this decision are the same ones who are making political careers.

indeed.. thats why i get so hopeless this time every 4 years... its the greedy, corrupt career politicians who we need to try to break up the party power complexes and the government power complexes, to get things back to being run in the interests of the people. i totally support limiting congressional terms and that ****, and reducing government spending and power, but with the power hungry bastards being the only ones who can do it, it seems like we have a better chance of pigs learning to fly. maybe if americans would really get into this ****, we'd have a fighting chance, but as long as most people dont really care and stay out of politics, except maybe to vote for the guy they'd rather have a beer with, i think we are screwed.
