      Yeah, when you grow up here and live here, you meet all kinds of people. Including family members and in-laws of some of these local guys. That's why I can comfortably say he's an assclown. Same with Doug. I've never ran in the same circles as the Ackerman's, but I've also never heard anything positive about him. I've heard great things about the McGriff family, but nothing specific about Travis himself. I've met Travis and had a lengthy conversation with him. He seemed like a pretty good guy, but it was a business setting, so you can't really take much away from that, but never heard anything bad about him.

      Back to Doering, his mortgage company is there only because of the name. I've met him in business and social settings, and he's a slimy dude.

      Weird enough, if you ever see Shane Matthews around, he doesn't exactly exude leadership like you would expect from a QB. I wasn't really surprised that he just followed Grow into that mess.

        But he was our ass clown. And has one of the most iconic plays in Florida history to boot.

                  He was a GREAT player and is one of the best stories (along with Kerwin) of a guy that exceeded all expectations. I’m sure he’s done a lot of good, too, but I wouldn’t put him on Danny & Tebow’s pedestal.

                  I’ve got my own warts. Not throwing big stones or throwing them very hard. [emoji6]

                          They should have put an asterisk on WiLLLLLLLie Mays 660. If he played anywhere but Candlestick he would have had 760.

                          Ted Williams 521 after losing key years to the war might have been 700. Best complete hitter of all time.

                            I wish they could rewrite the MLB record books to strike McGuire, Sosa, and especially Bonds. It’s a travesty that the record books show an obvious juicer holding the HR record over Hank Aaron. Just ridiculous.

                              I can’t speak for after McGuire got busted , because the grandson moved to Atlanta and I never stayed in contact with him. I haven’t heard any rumblings through the Gainesville grapevine, not would I expect it from that family.

                              They were very gracious and supportive of McGuire during the run. I can only assume because of the hate Roger dealt with during his run.

                              The most heated I saw the grandson was during the lawsuit with Anheuser. That got pretty heated but it was all behind the scenes. They made out with about $85M from the anti trust suit. Not sure how much in the civil. Nor am I sure what happened on any kind of appeal. After the anti trust trial, it was like he was on Prozac for a long time. Pretty stressful on the family during the hearings
