Again - you can label and categorize me however you wish. It means nothing. If you need to laugh at others to feel better, have at it.

Decision-makers seem to view Benson and HOF differently than many Yappsters. Wonder why that is?

Its always a good thing to host the games and I hope it happens again.

Good job Stark County.

"Fanboy" seems to certainly be derogatory in nature and implies that this "lesser class" couldn't possibly discern poor officiating.
