Not banned, but self imposed exile.

Big, iMO was a character. I disagreed with most of what he said; he tended to be outragiously political; but I think that he certainly knew his wrestling and I learned some from him. I remembered him from the old Mat wrestling board before I left it because it became so personal and nasty. JW was a loud mouthed, ill-tempered and obnoxious punk who doesn't belong on any board.

Don't know how much help I could be on the All-Banned Team (would be interesting), since I unbanned pretty much everyone except Shagwell. The "all banned team" while on my watch would actually be from pretty small sample size. Nothing like the 2006-2009 run.
Sorry so late to the "What ever happened to Big?" party, but I every once find my self wondering what happened to him. Around the time this site was created (and thank goodness for that!) I was far more active on The Mat site and really enjoyed it as a foray into learning about other conferences and programs. I remember when Nickerson made his first finals as a true freshman in 2006, thus validating Big's INSANE lathered up love of TN. I aprehensively went my computer and saw the following post by Big: "YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!! "
Hated seeing that blowhard get the last laugh!
There was a weird stretch where I got into extemely lengthy debates with him when he insinuated JRob was a racist, but I'd be damned if I can remember the context. I think he was carrying the monikor "Bigredelephant" or something along those lines. I'm not on the boards as much as I was back then (stupid job with more responsibilities and travel), but I can look back and know I bit hard on the trolling that Big was doing and it took a little longer than it should of for me to appreciate his existence........that said, don't let him come over to this site! (Unless he already is......../cue Law and Order sound effect)

Big=LoSt? Have you ever seen them in the same place at the same tone.

BIG = Tripster yes, Big = Lost - no. Lost is just lost. BIG / Tripster was / is still a flaming a-hole.
Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.
