My Watch is Ended Empty My Watch is Ended

Post by RedOranje on Wed Jul 27, 2016 6:45 pm

Following some considerable thought and lengthy consideration, I've come to the conclusion that it's time for me to step away from the forums.  There's no particular reason or motive for this, other than that I feel that I've run my course here.  As such, I believe I can no longer offer the full commitment, energy, and time that I feel is commensurate with the Admin position and am stepping down from the role.  It should go without saying that I will not be checking or responding to PMs any longer either, so please direct any future questions or concerns to the rest of the staff instead.

Hard to believe it's been 8 years since I first met some of you when I joined up with the Goal forums.  It's been a wild, glorious, at times maddening, but always enjoyable ride.  I have full faith in the Admin and Moderating staff and the community here to carry on and grow without a lowly ol' curmudgeon like me.  Stick with each other and You'll Never Walk Alone.

Here's looking at you, GL.

You and I never saw eye to eye, but your character certainly added to the variety of flavour that has grown principle to this place, and no one can deny the work you put in as co-admin.

All the best with what's next for you, mate. Thumbs up

Hope you use your time in something more fulfilling, RO. I know what you mean, and yeah, as the other guys have said, you can just come back as a regular poster without all that Force admin power responsibility. Will be definitely be missing those deadpan answers.

Take care :bow:

You've been kind of inactive for a while, still i hope you can find time to participate or pop in every now and then without having to shoulder the burden of being an admin. I wish you good luck in your future endeavours, and don't be a stranger

Thanks for everything you have done

As a tribute to beloved RedO, I want to take the time to quote in length one of the very first discussions I participated in/instigated on here, back when I was newly registered and had barely posted, which incorporated also the first of the far too few interactions I had with RedO.

From the FIFPro World XI 2013 thread, http://www.goallegacy.net/t34441p75-fifpro-world-xi-2013#1104390

Maybe I haven't comprehended correctly, but have you just called Jerome Boateng the best CB in the world?

Even I have to laugh about this Laughing

He is not even the best CB in our team, had a good season until now though

It's not that hard to comprehend, 5 1/2 words "best CB in the world".

To be fair to Arq, your claim is ridiculous and your original post is a wee bit convoluted.  I can see why he wanted clarification.

and why is my claim ridiculous? You know, not just 'wrong' in your opinion, but 'ridiculous'?

@RedOranje wrote:Because your claim is that a player who, statistically and in the general consensus, isn't even the best central defender at his own club, is in fact "the best in the world."

By no estimation does your opinion on the matter appear to hold any more weight than someone stating that Sarah Palin in the best politician in the world.  If you'd said he's "your favourite" then that's an entirely other matter which could certainly be judged purely by subjective personal opinion... however, making a claim for "best" does by its nature bring into the discussion both statistical evidence and opinions of both the general masses and experts in the field (insomuch as there ARE experts) and in those categories your claim falls utterly flat.

Laughing

You will be missed, RedO Sad

Start a blog on history or something, I would probably follow that.

Was nice getting to know you, have fun in the future. I will now assume my status as moderator.

I've been practicing and will do my best to fill the void, however large it may be.

As I've already said, all the best RedO.

the guy was here for 8 years and the funny thing is not one person asked him to stay.

If I have learned anything in 8 years about that guy - once he makes a decision, there's no compromise.

Everyone probably knows that.

This. Of course he knows he is always welcome if he ever reconsiders, but his decision is respected, and IMO begging him to stay would be showing disrespect to a very clear and straightforward person.

Well said, RWO and Vibe.

Asking him to stay would have been pointless, it was much better to accept his decision and wish him the best.

am I the only person that thinks its strange for the guy to one day just cut all ties with people he has known and talked with for 8 years. I didn't know him long but I found him a strange guy that was serious all the time. not to speak bad of him now he has gone but the guy came across as someone that had the worlds problems on his head. he seemed like a guy that was never happy in life.

Maybe you've never been here: http://www.goallegacy.net/t27680-the-let-s-freak-rg-out-thread#800383

RedO was not the chummy, banter guy - but he was definitely one who was highly respected across the forum.
