I haven't been able to let go? You're the one who keeps on bringing it up and making the non-specific references to others.I think that you have personalized what I've said way too much. I often don't even remember which poster said what, but you were neither the first nor likely the last to talk about the "swing pass" issue, so whether you were sincere or not wasn't really that big of a deal to me. I wouldn't even remember that you had ever been one to use it except that you haven't been able to move on from it ever since I made the post--which wasn't even to you--that generally explained the difference.
If you feel like I'm being condescending, well, those are still your feelings, so you're going to need to deal with them. I am who I am, and I'm not going to change because some guy I've never met on a fan thread got his feelings hurt because I didn't show him his due deference for having been a member on a fan board for 15 years. I don't care about that sort of thing and never will. I do care about football, and I've spent a few decades now helping people to understand it better, whether player, fan, or coach. If you want to take something from that and find value in it, go for it with my blessing. If you want me to change how I write here because of whatever it is that you perceive about your status? No, I don't think so. Choose what you like.
If the above is what you took away from my post, then you really are completely self-centered. My feelings aren't hurt in the least . . . so I'll be me and you can be you and GBR.
