Ok APC... I just got off the phone with Dan "Stroh" Strohman. For all the long-time APC'ers, Stroh needs no introduction... For those who are relatively new, "Stroh" was a strong, long-time member of APC, and he let his competitive nature get the better of him, and was banned from Acme Packing Company. (As I have been a couple times... : )
I learned my lesson... I seriously try to avoid those that I know will provoke me. I try to temper my comments as hard as it may be sometimes, so as to not offend anyone... I'm not a big fan of being "Politically Correct." I do understand that we are living in a totally different society than I grew up in, and the internet is a community unto itself... The diversity is too immense to fathom sometimes, which is not an excuse, but, a fact.
After talking with Stroh, I feel he is truly remorseful for what took place. He assured me has seen the error of his ways, and promised to be more polite, less inherently confrontational, and an up-standing member of the APC Community if given the opportunity to return... I for one, actually miss his insight and point of view, of our favorite team, the Green Bay Packers.
Believe me, I don't always agree with Stroh, but, isn't that what this site is for? Discuss, debate, and comparing opinions of what the team as a whole should, or shouldn't do? Who should or shouldn't play? What is right or what is wrong with the defense/offense?
I think it's time we give Stroh another chance. Like Johnny Jolly, isn't this a site that encourages change and second chances? I say give him another chance, if he blows it ~ Tex can always use the Ban Hammer.
What say you?
