    Why do you have to propose a silly bet like that and shoot yourself in the foot!?!

    Since you are a fellow Rockets fan....

    How about you

    1) Make a donation in the amount of $25 to a charity of my choice (you can make the donation personally but I would like some sort of proof) and...

    2) Consider toning it down when it comes to making bold predictions (I know its going to be hard for you because that is who you are but try to make an attempt!)

    ....and we can forget about you leaving this board!

    Of course you can come back with a different moniker and not have to do this but that would not be too honorable, would it? ;)

    What say you? :)

    I echo that. Classy move on Zboy's part. It allows Jopa to remain a valuable member of our favorite team, with a very small penalty to pay for.

    Take it, Jopa. Be a bigger man.

    I always got the feeling that he was trolling. That he wanted to leave and just wanted an excuse to make a grand exit before he did.

    I'd only agree(still difficult because it's jopat) if Clutch changes the member status to "Nate Silver's b!tch" or something like that. Now that would be hilarious.

    I have to spread rep before giving it to you again. Very classy move.

    Classy move. I only wish the majority of you guys who post in here had the same kind of class as Zboy. Reading you all this past month, good God, 90% of you act like little kids throwing a tantrum day in and day out. So ****ing embarrassing to even read. So sad to read some of the posters I thought I had "internet" respect for act like such intermediate school juveniles.

    I hope you take the deal jopatmc, maybe after a little time off if you like, and when you return just stay out of D&D if you don't like it. A lot of great CF members don't wander into this particular forum, as you pointed out before.

    As others said, a classy move. An apology to everyone here, as well, seems in order, but I guess he'd have to post here to deliver it. I'd be happy if you simply told us that he apologized to you. Somehow, I doubt that he'll take you up on the offer.


    Marsellus: Night of the fight, you may fell a slight sting, that's pride ****in' wit you. **** pride! Pride only hurts, it never helps. You fight through that ****. 'Cause a year from now, when you're kickin' it in the Caribbean you're gonna say to yourself, "Marsellus Wallace was right."

    Zboy has posted a lot of crap in the past, and of course even this offer is not without any gloating, but I think it is a very fair move to make this offer, considering the previous thread.

    In fairness, it was jopatmc who made the bet, then continued to bring it up again and again without engaging in reasonable discussion.

    Yep.

    It's one thing to be an arrogant jerk, another to be an arrogant jerk and wrong.

    Jopatmc brought this on himself.

    Hell, his last post was unrepetant. Blamed others for what he'd brought on.

    I don't like getting into the trenches, I'm not the confrontational sort. But naturally on the Internet there's a lot of physical separation. Imagine if all this had gone on at some sort of big dinner for clutchfans members at, say, Buffalo Wild Wings, in order to watch a Rockets game. It would've turned into an episode of Adam West's TV Batman: SOKK! POW!! WHAP!

    BUT, I like his comments in the GARM. Intensity as a Rox fan = good. Hope he comes back.
