I explained the situation, if you think I'm being vindictive you're being a fool.
I didn't know he was cheating until someone else brought it up a few days ago. I knew he had multiple ID's, I didn't know he was in violation of the rules. Lots of people have multiple IDs, billyg was the first someone else pointed out was cheating. If you know of anyone else I'll submit a ticket on them as well.
i was the first someone else pointed out was in violation? i mean, people very rarely specifically identify others, so its possible technically its the first time youve seen SOMEONE ELSE point it out. but ive made it clear i have teams within 1000 miles at least 50 times in the last 5 years, and probably a good dozen in the last year. at least a couple dozen other times, other coaches have made it clear about their own teams. usually, others dont point it out (its happened, but you could have missed it). but coaches point it out about themselves regularly. its pretty much common knowledge that there are pretty many guys with multiple teams, who are within 1000 miles, who pre-dated the rules, and havent self-enforced. nobody really knows what seble is thinking, and he over compensates all the time for a couple guys complaining - i think most of us held out hope that if push came to shove, hed change his mind, as is often the case. anyway, a guy in 7 worlds fairly regular on the forums, should be aware a bunch of people are in violation. im over losing the team - still wish seble would man up and step up to the plate on the larger issues - so im really not that concerned about it. but i just dont understand, why wouldnt you man up to it? you seem to think its a crazy theory - but to me, theres 3 fundamental things that are pretty hard to believe, are just coincidence. so maybe this will help you understand why people aren't buying what you are selling. this is just so stupid, so this is probably my last post on the topic - but i figure you at least deserve an explanation, of why i (and others) dont believe your story.
1 - anyone in your position, fairly regular on the forums 7 worlds, played for a long time, etc - should be pretty aware of this issue. a handful of coaches are super up-front about it, myself included, but im not the only one. could you really be so unobservant to have never noticed before? its possible, but a long shot
2 - you dont come out to rail about multiple teams at every opportunity, which suggests this isnt a super important issue to you. you certainly arent known as one of the leading fighters against multiple teams, correct me if im wrong. the vast majority of the time, when someone knows of someone in violation, they 1) dont talk about it publicly, knowing its a very controversial issues, and 2) if they do, they usually wont even identify the other coach. its pretty rare someone will come out so blatantly about reporting someone. i know of 1 case, a coach who i outed for sending me collusive sitemails, who would, for about 2 years, post random attacks on me as often as every week - i picked up cinci in tark, and he made a public complaint about it. only time ive ever seen it with anyone, and he clearly had an axe to grind. is it possible you would really be in your face about this, if you reported it, and you didnt have an axe to grind? if i hadnt just beaten you in a last-second poaching? made more painful because you lost to a similar prestige team who was over 1500 miles away, using 2K campus visits, a guy who beat you in 2 battles YOU started 2 seasons before? its possible, but a long shot.
3 - of all the coaches open about this issue, and all the times you could figure it out - it just *happens* to be the coach you just battled with, and it just *happens* to be within a week of a particular incident? if this was 6 months from now, it would still be pretty hard to believe #1 and #2. but when you have timing like this, is it possible its a coincidence? its possible, but a long shot.
i could see 1 long shot, but not 3. it just doesnt fit. you act like a big, tough navy guy, why not act like one, and own up to it? when i think of that picture of you standing arms folded, all tough-guy, in front of that big *** ship - that doesnt look like a tattle tale to me. with an axe to grind, i can see it. but at least man up to it, no??
