Ladies and gentlemen, may I present the reason that other schools think all of us are inbred, semi-literate, redneck trash. Behold, a brief correspondence between myself and a former user known as The Truth. You might remember him as the guy who posted comments over and and over on every post saying something to the effect of "please vote: qb starter kit #14 or #17. the greyshirt kid is done!." You can look for those posts, but I've erased them, 'cause they were annoying. Anywho, it all started innocently enough when I e-mailed him to ask him to stop:
This is Todd from Roll Bama Roll. We get it. You are upset about the QB situation, just like the rest of us. But spamming the comments and posting your plea for a vote is doing nothing but annoying everyone that works on and reads the blog. You posted a diary about it, that's enough. If you keep posting comments that have nothing to do with the post, we'll block you.
Sounds reasonable enough, right? Apparently not. His retort:
Does The Nicktator Control this web-site also like the AH @ Tx A+M ?
If U "GET IT" todd and U R so Upset bout the "QB situation" why R U making Jokes about getting Beat by La Mon-Who .. GET SOME PRESS ON CHANGING this QB BS NOW..with Nicktaors permission ,of course..# 14 The GRAY-SHIRT kid is DONE...look @ his #'s
What Happen to Freedom of the Press todd, it applies to All, even Jock Sniffing so called experts and their web sites..
It should be "Roll Over Bama roll " and let Les @ [lsu] have his way with you Again..or La Monroe,miss st ur Choice...
Knowing good and well that arguing with someone who's e-mails look like the text messages sent every few seconds by a 14 year old girl is not a wise idea, I still decided to respond thusly:
This, of course, did not sit well with The Truth:
When U post the Voting Poll on your home page then we will know u have found @ least 1 of ur balls.
I'm not entirely sure what he thinks my "job" is here but, in hindsight, I'm afraid this gentleman thinks we're some sort of official arm of the sports information office at the University. Maybe I should have clarified that to him, but I assumed the header at the top of the page that clearly reads "An Unofficial Alabama Crimson Tide Blog" was enough. Silly me. Anywho, being the short tempered glutton for punishment that I am:
You know why other fans talk about Alabama fans being nothing but idiot rednecks with unrealistic expectations? Guys like you. You want to fan the flames and look like an idiot, start your own blog 'cause we don't need or want a troublemaker making the rest of us look stupid. They're free on blogger and wordpress, if you're smart enough to figure out how to set one up.
So, I suppose I was asking for this next bit (be warned, vulgar language ahead):
U don't need me to make U look Stupid, U r fine job of that with-out any-ones help as a Nicktatore Bitch..
"Guys like me" R U profiling me like your Great gov Mr G Wallace would and The Nicktator did The QB in Miami,Call Dante and ask what it was like playing for your Pimp the nicktator....
Do we need to call Uncle Al Sharpton on your red-neck ref's..I don't need to hide behind a BS blog like u and every other MF jock sniffer that always wanted to Be a player but Never Was..unless U r kicking some ass on X-box 360 or madden 2007..
Your 'smart enough' BS go look in the mirror and then Go get Last years W-2 or W-9 Tax form and then go look in the mirror again and see Studid all over again..
Smart enough, Like what The Univ of Alabama is paying The Nicktator...Now even a Stupid mother fucker like U would Not agree to that''
C-U @ The Tail-gate party..
Keep responding so we can show your Bosses and ur 7 fans
Again, not sure who he thinks my bosses are, and I'm starting to think this guy isn't an Alabama fan at all, but a troublemaking Auburn fan trying to stir us up. So feeling like I had to get one last barb in:
To which he succinctly replied:
Now go finish ur X-box madden tour...after U burn ur w-2..
Well, he's got us there.
Anyway, despite all of our differences, I did think it was nice how he so politely ended all the previous letters with a sincere "thx," and it was even nicer of him to invite me to his tail-gate party, so I don't guess he's all bad. Now if you'll excuse me, there's apparently an X-box calling my name...
