    Every time I come here I see bashing of Leaf and other products as well as other members.

    Quit being an ass and respond professionally to comments or this site will become another Geocities or MySpace..
    Man I love you and all but you need to understand this is a Sam banks issue and not a board issue.

    I couldn't agree more. I feel the exact same way. People on here have bashed Leaf and Brian in particular for years and years. If you don't like the product don't buy it and if you don't buy it quit *****ing about it.
    I've met Brian and I think he's a decent guy. I personally don't believe he deserves all this juvenile nonsense.

    And people buy the products...no matter how any of us feel about it. I do not personally buy leaf anymore but bashing something for the sport of it seems like a waste of time...IMO.

    And for a long time he was accessible to this board and openly engaged in conversations...I'm fairly certain there aren't many people in this industry who would tolerate that for as long as Brian did. Like him or dislike him you have to give him credit for that.

    Remember the time he bet me that Bubba Starling had much better chance of making the HOF than Bo Jackson?

    That was the best.

    It was fueled by my smartass comment that Bo was already in the CFB HOF and that he needed to pay up. Of course the jackals jumped in and we all poked the lion for some time.

    Yeah. I got many a chuckle on that day.

    but I didnít read it that way I see Sam as being the bigger man and turning over a new leaf..

    On top of that who the hell takes Sam seriously? And on top of that did babe Ruth play hockey?
    Let me just start by saying I've never owned a single card made by Leaf, just not my bag, nor have I ever met or talked with Brian and do not know him. Trolling is one thing and so is the endless bashing of Leaf products but when you intentionally mess with the livelihood of someone by claiming fraud, you better come correct. Sam runs his mouth all over the place and when it was time to put up or shut up, he had nothing and now just has to shut up. Talk about hilarious.

    I see that humor point but I donít see how leaf could prove Sams smart smart ass or libelous comment (whichever is preferred) cost the company money or damages. 1 Sam is known for bashing and trolling them 2 they have the authenticator of the card to spoon up a mouth full of poop for Sam..

    And.. i will say.. Sam is who he is..

    My real issue is we the collectors are paying for a company to sue those in our own community. There are simpler, less petty and more cost friendly ways for leaf to stick it to Sam on this.

    Remember when topps had a rep on this board? And all the guff he took? When bad things were said about redemptions or products he didnít run out and sue.. (still hoping leaf didnít) he ignored them or responded in a professional manner.. he didnít go out and make a fu ck redemption card while still having redemptions.. he didnít take his legal team and sue someone.. he remained a professional in all manners. I guess thatís the difference in being considered a top end business.
