    I always assumed Wormwood was the new user name for G8rMaj, if people even remember that far back. Same posting style, same hobby horses, same stat presentation style.

    Definitely a smart guy, and there's always value to the occasional contrarian. But I never quite figured out his deal - whether he was an outright troll with a more sophisticated style, a genuine fan who thought that he was contributing value by taking the contrarian and unpopular positions or someone who was totally sincere with his analysis. Regardless, if you're someone who believes there's more to criticize than to praise in the career of Steve Spurrier, and more to praise than to criticize in the career of Ron Zook, either you're screwing with me or you and I just have vastly different analytical frameworks.

    Great observation and somehow I forgot about Maj. The only difference in their styles if I remember was the spreadsheet style analytics worm posted ad nauseam. Agree with everything you wrote

    Hey, Brain, my good Gator friend. Swamp Gas was better than ever last football season, pop in and check it out if you get bored with the other forums. I slowed my roll on Too Hot too. Too much animosity about the minutia of that subject matter... will not say that subject here.

    Sometimes in TH...
    There are several posters there who I could swear who eat their young.

    Post one opinion, and a few will agree with you...but..there's bound to be at least 1,/3 of them who will pounce on you with a white-hot vengeance

    Maybe have a singular forum labeled “The Brig” where probationary, banned, and the like can remain on GC, but unable to cause problems on the regular boards?

    Every once in a while, there should be a prison break where they are allowed to sneak out and cause trouble. I love me some good old-fashioned message board drama.

    I had my differences with G8rMaj and my recollection is he was a “blue skier” or assigned a different cause/effect rational to various aspects or states of the program. That said, he met up with us in Atlanta early 2000s and we watched a game at Raccoon Lodge. I’m pretty sure he was not also wormwood but who knows.

    I can understand someone deciding there are more important things to spend time caring about.

    Come to think of it so did GatorMaj and perhaps that’s what used to bother me. Maybe he has two personas.

    I'm sure no moderator or administrator has ever encouraged such behavior.

    Of course no Moderator nor Administrator would encourage such behavior.......BUT.....

    We most certainly would enforce the rules against such behavior..

    Both Jaggator and Darthgator1 are deceased. Dreamliner and his former wife divorced, he left Orlando and he moved to Charlotte, NC. I've not been in touch with him for years but pretty sure he remarried. Pretty sure Leahy has passed, too.
