This will be my last post or thread on this site except for the professors game prediction thread other than that Im through. I know some of you will be unbelieveably happy so enjoy it as much as you feel necessary. Im doing this b/c of my health problems and also b/c of the 2 threads that have been deleted over the past 36 hours. I hope this site continues to be very successful and the Cats can pull this season out and I will only be able to imagine what a great team the BBN will be seeing next year and I hope you all enjoy the very special season that I believe it will be in 2013. It has been a pleasure bantering around opinions on different subjects and I can only apologize once more for the repetition of subjects I put you through b/c it wasnt my intention to do so. So I say goodbye and may God bless you all. Sleepy
What are the two threads they you are referencing?
Double secret probation
I hate to see you quit posting. I always felt that your posts were very objective. I hope that your health problems are not that serious and I pray for a speedy recovery.
Health problems aside I think you're overreacting to the thread deletions, it's only done so there aren't five subjects on the same topic, keeps the boards in order. Hope you reconsider and feel better soon.
Im making an exception since this is my last thread and to let you know that the original post was the only 1 concerning the subject of the 5 UK players that were selected to the McDonalds All American team. I put that thread on 1st b/c I checked the site completely before I submitted it and there had not been any posts or threads concerning that subject in the past 6 months. Right after I submitted the thread about 20 minutes later it was deleted and an almost identical thread was put on this site by staff. I went on that thread and asked politely why my thread had been deleted but no answer was forth coming. Then I submitted my 2nd thread to ask if anyone else had experienced the same thing that I had just gone through and it was deleted also a short time later. My 2nd thread was respectful and wasnt hostile whatsoever yet they deemed it necessary to delete it also for reasons I dont know of. Im stopping my posting on this site mainly b/c of a health problem that isnt going to get better and Im getting weaker although I was disappointed that they had deleted both of the threads I submitted w/o explanation.
Thankyou for the reply and the nice things you said. My health problems wont be getting better and Im just getting to weak to concentrate on what Im am writing which is why in the past I have repeated posts and irritated some people rightfully so. Thanks for your prayers they are greatly appreciated. God bless you and your family. AND GO CATS
Just now seeing this Sleepy. Gonna miss you man. Your love for the CATS was always so evident. And I realize you've been going through some serious health issues. I'm not sure everybody else realizes that. I'm sure thats a tough thing to deal with. Some of the people that give you a hard time wouldn't want to walk an hour in your shoes I'm sure. Regardless I wish you peace in you heart. Good luck Bud. And if you can find a way to bless my family from the other side one day please do so. LOL.
The 1st thread was about the 5 UK players that were named to the McDonalds All American team. I checked the site completely before submitting it and there wasnt any mention of it prior to my putting it on. Twenty minutes later it was deleted and an almost identical thread was put on this site by staff. The 2nd thread was where I asked if anyone else had gone thru this before and why would they delete mine since it was on 1st. I had I think 2 or 3 replies from other posters giving me an explanation as to why they would have done that and then a short time later they deleted that thread also. I had gone to the staffs replacement thread and asked why mine had been deleted but wasnt given an answer. All of my threads and posts are done with respect for the other people that I answer and these were no different. But let me make it clear the main reason Im stopping my posting is b/c of my health. I am getting too weak to continue to think straight so I dont want to say anything inappropriate and not to get worse in repeating what I have said in the past like I have done in the last few months which I know has agravated some people quite abit and rightfully so. I will answer the posts on this thread if I get any more and that will be it. Thanks for replying.
Believe me I got your post b/c I just watched the Animal House movie for maybe the 1000th time last night. That movie is my favorite of alltime.

Will really miss your posts and enthusiasm; especially as you played for the Cats in 1970s. My prayers are with you & yours Brother.
Hang in there Sleepy... and God Bless
Hope your health gets better, at least you deserve an explanation for what happened. Going to miss you.

Stay strong and god speed, sleepy. I would ask that you not stop posting simply b/c you are worried about bothering people with repetitive posts, but by all means do what is best for you and your health. Hope to see you around the boards soon.
If people get that irritated because you post something twice then they need to get over it. If you can't post because of health then thats another issue. Just don't let some jackass get to you because you repeat something. Don't know you, but I do hope your health imporves a lot!
+1. It's a sad day when a former UK football player quits posting here, for any reason.
Could the reason your thread be deleted is that a staff member wrote an article on the subject which started a thread. So because the article started a thread and there were now 2 it just meant yours had to go. Maybe the staff can't post an article in a three going or maybe they concerned if they post it in a thread already going not everyone will see it.
If your health is what is keeping you from posting that's one thing, but if your not posting because a those two threads got deleted that's ridiculous.
I'm just waiting on the staff to actually answer the question rather than us trying to guess on why it happened.
No that didnt happen b/c I checked for stories and other posts before I submitted mine. Thanks for replying. Let me explain 1 thing further. I am replying to posts to my last thread b/c its only fair if someone asks a question then an answer is deserved. I should have put in my original Post that once this thread was off the front page then no further posts would be forthcoming. Sorry if it apperas that I have mislead anyone it wasnt my intent. Thankyou to all of you and may God bless you all.
