Well, now that my TC just blew up, let me clarify.Unfortunately, I can't think of way of doing so without revealing TC's in the forums. Apologies in advance where they are needed. Nordique did TC me with this:
"Thanks, but this is a danger of a veto. thats why we usually dont say anything about the draft picks, we just do it after rollover...silently...
lol...cross your fingers"
so that is NOT a lie. To be fair to nauds, he TC'd me after the announcement with:
"Hey bro, just wanna make sure you know KC has 0/0 prospect scouting... The chances of his picks being any good are low"
and followed up with:
"Look at his draft history it will give you an idea of what youre getting. You want me to approve this? If i were you i would wait until after the draft, so you know u are getting at least something. Btw, this conversation never happened. Im good friends with nordique"
Since nauds just asked me to speak up, I figure I'm released from that promise. I responded with:
"I'm actually really easy going - do what you feel is right, and I won't rat you out, lol" (meaning to Nordique for questioning the trade)
Since the trade was approved, I have no idea who voted for or against it now. As I indicated to Ovechkin last night, the first indication I had that something was really wrong was when Nordique said these things are normally done quietly, but at that point, the trade was accepted and in the hands of the league to vote. While Nauds has been very (some might say overly) vocal in defense of his friend, he had nothing else to do with this deal. For my part, I'm willing to vacate my claim to the draft picks and accept the loss of Colbrunn as an expensive lesson learned in order to get back to playing and enjoying the game.
I don't post much on HBD forums but this whole affair reminds me a bit of the recent Penn State deal. Lets keep things silent while I take you into the showers and fleece you of your best players for some **** draft picks that I drafted with 0/0 scouting.
Why has WIS not banned this guy? 12-1 WS or not, totally classless. Looks like a lot of cheerypicking went into those 12 WS's too.
I am 3-0 in WS's, another starts tomorrow. But I like to compare my titles to Smith Barney of old, "I make my WS Championships the Old Fashioned way. I earn them". nordique has not earned his titles by working at it. He's gamed the game by cheating and cherry picking.
