Sorry to see you go TA. You were someone I could always count on to be calm, insightful, and not use the word SUCK all the time. Lurk occasionally and you will see that this place has a way of drawing (I mean sucking) you back in.

wow this SERIOUSLY sucks man.

you've been one of the most important assets to this board - both as a poster and moderator.

PLEASE make sure you at least stop by from time to time and maybe even take a few minutes every week or so to post some ?

you will really be missed around here, and i can only hope that in time you'll find a way to come back - even if it's just as a poster, even if it's in a smaller capacity.

a huge loss.

all the best tony, and please try to stop by whenever you have the chance.

thanks for everything.
you're a great poster, a fantastic mod, and you sound like a very very cool guy as well.

david.

Seriously, now LG needs to have its own reality contest:

"LakersGround.net's Next Moderator!"

Who should the contestants be?


CandyCanes
Dreamshake
JD
PNP
Superboy
You


You should. Seriously.

Hey TA - Let's go on the Dwight thread and take some shots at Bynum for old time's sake =D.

Just dropped by to check out things LG and read your post first, Tony.

Tears came, especially when I read your reference to my uncle Phil and me, quote Tony A. "The gone, but never forgotten, Phil Allen (by the way, for those who donít know, LG is lucky to have his niece, Cha*n on this site, and her contributions).

I really appreciate that. I have always felt a little funny on this site as when my uncle was still alive we would do the news together many times and I got to know many of you mods without you knowing of me. You were one of my uncles favorites here and mine also.

The best to you and yours Tony.

Sincere thank you to everyone, for all of your kind words and well wishes. Truly was overwhelmed reading this thread. The feeling is mutual and I will miss you all.

I'll try and check in to at least say hey at some point.

And, a couple of you have mentioned this in emails -- apparently there's something called facebook where people keep in touch. Who knew. Anyway, assuming you aren't a psychopath / serial killer, if you'd like shoot me an email letting me know your username with your facebook link.

Anyway, thank you again everyone. Hope you all have a safe and great New Year!

I like and respect all of the mods (even LS ), but Tony was singularly good at it. I'd like to suggest that every year, we have a poll and vote for the TA Mod of the year award.

Thanks for a great job TA. Like a referee in a fight control without interfering. May your next endeavor be successful.

HAPPY NEW YEAR...
