    @Clutch I am qualified as the father of an autistic person and the leader of a successful local autism organization to tell you that how that ranks with being a redeemable decent human being toward those with disabilities . I'm not interested in ranking atrocities. If Bobby called a black person then N word, it would be a permanent ban and you can't deny that. If you do deny it, how long would the ban be?

    Why you seem to draw a distinction between hate speech directed toward an ethnic community and disabled community is beyond me.

    You are in now way being providing the same level of respect and dignity to the disabled community as you would to other communities that are victims of hate speech. As a member of the media, myself and my organization expect better from you.

    Please don't like you were innocent until the time you attacked a special needs family member of Granville. You attacked people almost every post before that happened.

    Your apology still tried to attack him. You aren't the only person on this bbs that have attacked people. In the D&D it happens all the time. Don't pretend like you've ignored being attacked all the time until you finally were pushed over the edge and crossed the line. That's BS.

    I just hate player only fans
    Like McGrady only fans and Lin only fans

    And every clutchfan I met knows that

    You were a notorious McGrady only fan
    But I’m willing to look past that

    Let it go. We gave moved pass this I thought.

    For the record, I was neither "notorious" or a "McGrady only fan". I'm a nobody. I just happened to think McGrady was better than Kobe BEFORE he came to the Rockets and you went nuts over it.

    It's really disappointing that Dave is spending all this time to dig up dirt on a nobody like me but won't talk to @Granville .

    Not my call

    I do want to keep clutchfans as Rockets and Houston sports fans only

    These trolls thinking their player is more important than our team should be auto banned

    @Clutch shouldn't respond anymore to this thread. He should stand by his decision and move on no matter the protests. The whataboutism with @kevC was a bad, bad move IMO. It just gave Bobby a victory that he has no business getting.

    Bobby is back and we should get used to it. You guys will be watching him like a hawk anyway to see when he messes up. Report button is going to be on fire.

    You do you man. You think silly player only fans should be banned, I think posters who insult another's autistic child "r****d" should be banned. We all have our things.

    Clutchfans is named after clutch city
    Not Jeremy’s streak
    Or Tmac winning a scoring title with the magic
    Or Carmelo Anthony’s last good season
    Or Chicago Bulls Michael Jordan not playing in 95 but really was playing

    mergady sure was better than kobe in orlando. then he came to the rox and gradually transformed into whinegady. but i still think he outplayed lerbon during his healthy rox years (which was short lived).

    I'm interested in this conversation for a variety of reasons. I would have liked for you to have demanded and then extracted a much needed and sincere apology from the user in question as a component of his reinstatement. You didn't. I would have liked for you to have repudiated his pseudo apology that he predictably turned back on @Granville. You didn't.

    You @Clutch, are allowing this site to descend into irreparable ugliness, and I fear that you'll soon find yourself a sort of Yertle the Turtle. But, you know, somehow more comical.

    How hard is it for @Bobbythegreat to give a real and sincere apology to @Granville? This should take 10 seconds yet he is still refusing to do so. I am fine with @Clutch giving him a second chance, provided he apologizes. This is a simple ask for him to be un-banned that has still yet to be fulfilled.

    If he did give a real and sincere apology and I simply missed it, ignore this post.

    Ironic, coming from a non supporting or contributing member.

    I’ve been away traveling and only keeping up with things on twitter. I’m extremely disappointed after spending a great thanksgiving with my bro in law (he’s autistic) to get on clutchfans to see this. What in world prompted him being brought back? What changed? Was his life as pathetic as we all thought it was? Clutchfans used to be my oasis and this idiot has consistently poisoned it for a few years now. Not cool bringing him back. SMH

    For all the folks so upset with the reinstatement, why are you not simply leaving the board?

    Some have, and I suspect others will follow. I think many are hanging around for awhile to see if the bad apple is tossed for good. Many people have been here for a very longtime, so it's hard to just leave a place they view as a home. But, make no mistake, a poster like Bobby drags the entire Community down. I myself have at times avoided the areas of the board that Bobby tends to flood with his nonsense. His constant insults and picking fights gets tiring.

    To each his own, but it’s an Internet message board with thousands of voluntary participants. There are clearly going to be all sorts of personalities, especially since, for the most part, it’s anonymous. Posters will step over the line and ‘drag the community down’. On a board this size, it’s to be expected. Clutch handles things the best he can and folks will agree or disagree or just don’t care concerning his decisions.

    That’s a weak stance to take and you know it. Basically if people disagree then they should leave the board? The whole point of the feedback forum is (or should be) for people to give their feedback on things like this.
