Ron (good call on the Lil' Nash Rambler fif) had incredible debates with G.A. (Gary A'Dornato), keven was from Florida and went mia after one of the hurricanes, Matt was from Australia and started posting when the Mavs got Chris (the best running big man in the NBA) Anstey, W.A.B. (Arkie Boy), scott, and TMav made their way here or there, David (as mentioned by scott) was nuts But THE TROLL before Richard was JackEckoff - that dude was brutal. There was a guy, PepperFletch maybe, that always signed Peace and Fried Chicken from the DMN to LMF transition.
Ah, the memories. I looked myself up, supposedly I joined the LMF board in 2004, but I recall posts regarding Gary Trent and Erik Strickland. I always wondered about keven, I enjoyed his posts.
Unfortunately, one year I joined a LMF fantasy basketball league and it came down to the last day of games to determine the league championship. I was leading in several categories, including Turnovers, but trailing in others, such as points. So I actually benched a number of my turnover-prone players thinking that was a better strategy instead of chasing points, which I thought I was unlikely to win anyways (tanking!). keven was really hot at me as I recall for benching my players, and said I was cheesy and therefore the league was cheesy (that might have been FK, actually). Not a great feeling to have two great posters who aren't happy with your tactics. I stood my ground and would still do it again, but we didn't have a great exchange. Unfortunately, I never saw him post again that I recall and so I am sorry we left things that way -- I was wondering about him during the hurricanes.
Ron was a curmudgeon - he was all about war of attrition and tough-nosed basketball. Gary was very folksy and conversational. FK was esoteric and great, and keven was very principled. I still feel more comfortable posting over there but I enjoy the conversations here, too.
