      Follow up: from 1974-1991 interest rates were 8% at the lowest and hovered into the mid to upper teens quite frequently. So unless you owned the property free and clear, it was extremely hard to make any money as a landlord b/c you were paying so much money in interest. Nowadays we're paying 3-4.5% interest! That radically changes the game.

      So don't be so hard on your dad. It was a brutal time to be a landlord!

      Balance, my response was pulled quick, I did not in any way try to make light of what happened in Kansas City. I was trying to make a point regarding a post made by IBIK who tried to say anyone who would take his family to Mexico had to be crazy. Bad shit happens everywhere including the U.S.A.
      Sorry you read what I posted as offensive it was not intended to be such.

        Hi Georg, my reply was also pulled. No biggie, I just sometimes think that we become so accustomed to the news being just words in the air that we forget that there are human beings behind the news. For instance, Mitt Romney, and family, almost certainly cried genuine bitter sobbing tears on election night on realizing they had lost. You are fine, and I still enjoy and respect your posts. Paul

      I know it is considered a joke on BS, but FYP is a juvenile norm on BS because it makes it seem OK to do something you would never do in person.

      Imagine (really) we are at a party and you say: "I think RSL's defense is solid." Then, I said, "JP said, 'I think RSL's defense sucks.'" You would, rightly, be offended, because you didn't say that. You would probably say, "Dude! Don't say things I didn't say." Of course, in true BS fashion, I could respond with, "What JP said was, "Dude! Your exact quoting is awesome!" etc...

      If you wanted to say that too much defense loses a game, just say it. Do not put those words in my mouth. That is the lie, making it look like I said something I didn't say. If you look back you'll see that I put my foot down publicly about FYP over a year ago. When I did that, the use of FYP on the RSL boards dropped dramatically.

      I've made sure to discuss this on the side out of genuine respect for you and your posts.

      Sincerely,

      Paul

      dude calm down my FYP post was meant as a joke and in no way was an attack or meant to make you out ot be a liar. Rather just going on to say that too much defense will lose a game, man take a chill pill.

    FYP is the most juvenile and asinine thing that is part of Big Soccer tradition. It should be banned by moderators. Embratsu!
