    MBB's Official "I didn't win thread"

    So I took a few days off from the zone. To let the results sink in and because I have a new job and needed to focus on somethings.

    First Off, Congrats Playa. Thats all I have to say about that.

    Secondly, Thank you Zoners, I received dozens of emails offering your condolences and support. I was in touch with a whole lot of you during this process and that was cool. I dont think we do that enough. That is after all what makes this place great, the relationships between the zoners.

    Finally I got to thinking.... zone president? Hmmm the zone isn't a democracy. Stuff gets done and you deal with it... end of story. So screw that.

    Next Idea.....

    Vote MBB for King of the Zone!!!

    I remember that one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. "You don't have to tell me," I said. "I'm off the team, aren't I?"
    "Well," said Coach, "you never were really ON the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet.
    You show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times."
    It was all
    true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this Coach.
    He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can
    mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on.

    I am not sure how a guy gets elected president of the zone who I have never even heard of? LAPlaya? Who the hell is he?

    Re: MBB's Official "I didn't win thread"

    I do have a question for you or your staff, did you think going into this that there was ever any chance that you wouldn't win?

    Do you really think we were that arrogant? Nothing was pre-assumed...

    Why does this forum still exist? It's just going to create more issues than it solves at this point.

    Not about arrogance but it was clear to everyone that you guys were the favorites going in. Im honestly asking did you guys think that you werent going to win? Had I been working on the Bedard campaign there is no way I would of thought anybody else was going to win. Not like it matters now its over.

    I knew I wasn't going to win to be honest. I just stuck around to keep it interesting. Your campaign was a snooze fest...

    You went out and got the little guys, they pushed you over the top. Congrats on that it was a good strategy. Where are they now though? They didnt care about an election... they didnt vote for playa cause he was the right choice. They voted because you asked them too.

    Don't be that guy Bedard. Sour grapes aren't going to help you in the next election.

    Hate him because he sucks, not becuase he beat you.

    Im not going to go out re-hash the campaign with you. That's over with, I had a simple question. You answered it (and thank you for that), save the rhetoric for your run next year.

    Not trying to be that guy. Just stating the obvious.

    No, name value isn't everything here, but I find it hard to believe that some of those people knew or cared one way or the other about the election.

    Re: MBB's Official "I didn't win thread"

    I guess maybe I just read the post wrong. It seemed like he was bunching everyone that voted for Playa into the little person category. No biggie.

    In all honesty though... this is the main reason you guys lost my vote. In my opinion, throughout the whole campaign process Bedard's campaign came off as a group of whiners/complainers. Playa's campaign did a much better job of controlling themselves, which is why I voted for them, other than a couple threads that got out of hand of course.

    In the end I realize that this whole election was just for fun but I had to base my vote on something.
