you presume wrong i'm afraid Martin on all counts, no smidgeons of anything from me and I won't be going for any of your former players even if i did enquire about one 2 weeks back, or removing your posts unless they negate what is deemed appropriate code of conduct. If this game mattered to you, you wouldn't have done what you did which I think is a bit of a shame given your lengthy membership.
Fortunately, this game matters to me though and to many of the other managers on here so it gets plenty of my time and, perhaps somwhat sadly, drawn out paragraphs and posts like this one. Ii'll always try and do the right thing thats best for the game and i'd never seek to gain an advantage as you wrongly presume. I'm pretty sure the majority will have preferred I removed your post than left it up and that is why i took that course of action, no hidden agenda from me i'm afraid and please don't take it personally.
All the best though and a note for you going forward - perhaps you shouldn't make such wild assumptions in the future, you clearly don't know me and made a misjudgement of your own. It is only a game martin but your words are sometimes a touch insensitive with respect to the game and others, which is a bit of a shame. Sure, its great that I can edit and delete posts, but I shouldn't have to and i'd rather not, you should remember that I have to read them even if ~sometimes~ nobody else does. Lucky me.
That's all i've got to say. good night.
