Football Saturday

For the halfway point — eighth of 15 spring practices — the Warriors were in full pads, but not full contact.

“Did you hit anybody today?” quarterback Bryant Moniz asked linebacker Aaron Brown.

Brown responded: “Not today.”

Moniz said: “Then it wasn’t a full-contact practice. … When Aaron hits somebody, then it’s official. It’s on.”

Among the highlights:

• Billy Ray Stutzmann and Miah Ostrowski were the No. 1 slotbacks.

• Left wideout Darius Bright made two terrific leaping catches in the corner of the end zone, both over cornerback John Hardy-Tuliau, one of the team’s most athletic defensive backs.

• Sean Shigematsu, who will be a second-year freshman in the fall, rotated as the No. 1 right tackle. The idea is to give Shigematsu, right guard David Lefotu and left tackle Jordan Loeffler first-team reps. But line coach Gordy Shaw does not want to combine two of those young players with the first team at the same time. Loeffler has missed the past two practices because of “knee issues,” but he should be ready to resume practicing Monday.

• Running back Hogan Rosehill’s left arm was in a sling after suffering what he called a “stinger” during drills.

• With the dearth of defensive ends, the Warriors’ 4-5 scheme has been converted to a 3-4-5, with one of the “elephant” linebackers — Art Laurel or Darryl McBride — serving as a stand-up rush end.

• Big day for Kamalani Alo, who has the edge as the No. 1 nickelback. He had a sack and an interception in the scrimmage-like drill.

• Safety Leroy Lutu had another interception.

Kealoha Pilares had dinner this week with the Miami Dolphins, who are interested in him as a running back.

    The daffodils are out in full bloom and the tulips are getting ready to open.

  27. Stephen Tsai April 2, 2011 7:43 am

    I’ve always felt that people shouldn’t do things they don’t like to do.

    If a certain team makes a person, oh, so darn mad and frustrated, maybe it’s time to take a deep breath and not follow them. Instead, hang out with the family. Volunteer. Go for a walk.

    Or write to the coach of the team who is the source of anger/frustration.

    You’ll live a longer and happier life, and, I really do want people to live long and happy lives. It makes for a better world.

    It takes so much more energy to be mean to people. It’s much easier to be pleasant.

    Just relax and enjoy the day. Brilliant sunshine in Honolulu right now!

  34. bigislandkurt April 2, 2011 8:12 am

    One person, one personality rule. haaaaa. I love it.


  35. bigislandkurt April 2, 2011 8:14 am

    Blogs, especially ones that talk about sports teams are usually filled with posters just like MJ567. I guess he ‘neva get the memo that this blog is not that kind of blog. Pooof goes da posters with oozing amounts of keyboard courage.


  36. Pomai April 2, 2011 8:15 am

  37. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 8:20 am

    Yesterday was April Fool’s Day, but I managed to be fooled by two people. Boy, I was so gullible! What they said sounded so plausible, though!

  38. Kazz on Droid_X April 2, 2011 8:26 am

    Is that what happens when you are a so-called sports fan and you get old and lonely?

    I mean if their going to die alone anyway, they should take up some initiative and speed up the process.

  39. Kazz on Droid_X April 2, 2011 8:26 am

  70. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 8:52 am


    I am curious as to why Miami chose to dine with Pilares instead of Alex Green regarding the running back position.

    Any guesses?

  71. koakane April 2, 2011 8:53 am

    You can express your views after the softball game. But no fighting and, again, stick to one onscreen name. One person has used three since the one-personality rule was implemented.

  74. al April 2, 2011 8:58 am

    gg…april fool’s day was yesterday.

  75. LizKauai (macbook) April 2, 2011 8:58 am

    aaron- Bess with Pilares, Salas and Green (and Colt) would be even more interesting 😎

    Sad the the Redskins didn’t even send a rep… 🙁

  76. Stephen Tsai April 2, 2011 8:59 am

    OK, Kazz, no swearing at others. Say your sorry.

    Your Prayers needed by and old friend in the group that hung around together and I haven’t seen over 25 years since I left HI.

    She was a intermediate school PE teacher at KHS who retired around 5 yrs ago.

    “‘She’ has come down with Guillian-Barre Syndrome. It is an auto-immune dysfunction where her body produces anti-bodies which attack the nerve coatings, destroying their ability to carry signals. She has a very severe and fast case of GBS. The first symptoms came on(a week ago) Thursday night. By Friday morning she was hospitalized. By Sunday she was completely paralyzed. She is in the Intensive Care Unit at Straub Clinic and Hospital. We are told she will be there for several weeks before getting transferred to a regular hospital room and then to in-patient rehab. The prognosis for recovery is good but it will be a long, slow and hard path”.

    Appreciate any help for this wonderful person.


  102. whitey April 2, 2011 9:58 am

  122. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 10:34 am

    I hope Koa Mahu and can squeeze slide in under a grandfather clause as long as s/he sticks to the typical business in at hand.

    Same with Maryann(e) . Hmmm, first appeared around this time in 2007 I think. Gotta check… 🙂

  137. Michigan Warrior April 2, 2011 11:05 am

    C’mon, Wahine! Turn it up!!! Getting the hits today, just gotta bring those runners home!!!

    Would have loved to have attended the Pro Day. Too bad it can’t be held in Hawaii. Let’s hope that several get drafted (Pilares, Green, Sales and perhaps Silva, while others get free agent offers…but gotta wait for the lockout to end!!

    I also hope a team (NFL, CFL< or UFL) pick up Colt Brennan. Or maybe Colt can play in the Hawaii Pro Football league and get his body back in shape.

    How are you following the game?

  142. Michigan Warrior April 2, 2011 11:32 am

    Sidearm Stats… Only thing I got for now, unfortunately.

  143. Michigan Warrior April 2, 2011 11:33 am

    #2, 3, and 4 hitters up… top of the 7th… we’re trailing 2-1… and the first two were pop ups to left field.

  144. Michigan Warrior April 2, 2011 11:35 am

    Kliebenstein struck out looking.

  145. Michigan Warrior April 2, 2011 11:36 am

    At least most of the line-up is seeing the ball again. Making contact and getting hits, but just not those clutch hits. We are stranding far too many runners on base this year. Even playing small ball a bit today with a couple of Sac-bunts, and still can’t get those runs across.

  146. HawaiiSports April 2, 2011 11:41 am

    Saw them live, now I wanna see the DVD

  147. Slugger April 2, 2011 11:46 am

    #10 ~ Thanks for the thought, koakane. I got to see some of the guys in PHX when they were training with Chad Ikei. The UH Warriors have such a supportive attitude and ST’s comments on yesterday’s blog are so true. Good guys!

    Saw them live, now I wanna see the DVD.

  148. Slugger April 2, 2011 11:47 am


    Prayers for your friend.

    Looks like the Wahine will drop out of the national rankings to be replaced by Fresno State. Yes, Fresno should be the favorite to take the WAC crown. They have the pitching and timely hitting. Hawaii has the pitching but not, unfortunately, the timely hitting. Neither is a great hitting team this year, unlike the Wahine last season. Now they have to win the next game in the double header. Go Wahine!

  151. Lanaiboy April 2, 2011 12:25 pm

    Wie one under today. Moved up from 8th to 4th. Looks good, playing well.

  152. Lanaiboy April 2, 2011 12:27 pm

    Oops, Wie actually 2 under

  153. Ralph April 2, 2011 12:32 pm

    Here’s another who da hell cares!

    Ever notice those drivers of “large” SUVs and P/Us going well over the speed limit? The owners must be wealthy enough not to care about gas prices or they have easy access to inexpensive fuel.

    Ever notice drivers going bat-out-of-hell with no cares in the world for speeding or running a red light? Perhaps the operator has a “business card” of a police officer with this written on the back: “Please extend all courties to my ( fill in the blank )”. Save lots of $$$ on insurance premiums!!

  155. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 12:59 pm

    GO, MICHELLE! You can do it!!!

  156. PowderPuff April 2, 2011 1:10 pm

    Wow! Totally stoked about AG’s glove…wahooooo! Thanks ST! Hope the Rainbows are lighting up the Shockers again. It’s a gorgeous day on the links.

  157. jm2375 April 2, 2011 1:13 pm

    GO BOWS! (5-2 top 4th)

    GO WAHINE!! (0-0 top 5th)


  158. Stephen Tsai April 2, 2011 1:21 pm


    I’ll bring it to the volleyball match tonight.

  159. Lanaiboy April 2, 2011 1:22 pm

    Fresno State just took a two run lead on a homer. Same as last game. Looks like a sweep. Bows have two hits and no runs in two games against Michelle Moses.

  160. Pochonese April 2, 2011 1:23 pm

    Go Lady Dogs.

  161. Pochonese April 2, 2011 1:27 pm


  162. Stephen Tsai April 2, 2011 1:37 pm


    Next week, Salas’ autographed glove is the prize.

  163. WahineSoftballFan April 2, 2011 1:37 pm

    Wow, to all you known believers of what I have been saying of the Wahine Softball Coaching Staff, in particular Coach Coolen, and their inability to coach. This team will sadly being going nowhere this season, to no fact of the players. It is not their fact their coaches do not know how to coach, what a disgrace to the coaches. Coolen’s track records shows that when he has a team with a target on their backs, he does not know how to combat that fact. It happened back in 2008 and it is happening again in 2011. I truly feel sorry for the players.

  164. Pauoa Boy April 2, 2011 1:45 pm

    Saw them live, now I wanna see the DVD.

  165. Ralph April 2, 2011 1:47 pm

    Wie finishes the day at -6 to par, 6 back of current leader Tseng. She could use a putting coach, left a lot of putts on the green today. She missed one from with in 2 feet on the 17th.

  166. Ralph April 2, 2011 1:49 pm

    Wie in 4th place, up from 8th but there are others still out on the course to match or pass her.

  167. Hiflyer April 2, 2011 1:53 pm

    Saw them live, now I wanna see the DVD

  168. WahineSoftballFan April 2, 2011 1:54 pm

    Hey Ralph, can you putt better then Wie can???

  169. WahineSoftballFan April 2, 2011 1:55 pm

    Oh wait, ST will not sensor Ralph, he is a Tsaiko member, forgot, what a hypocrit.

  170. jm2375 April 2, 2011 1:56 pm


  171. Gmahoney April 2, 2011 1:56 pm

    Saw them live, now I wanna see the DVD.

  172. d1shima April 2, 2011 1:57 pm


  173. Gmahoney April 2, 2011 1:58 pm

    Double flick.

  174. HIflyer April 2, 2011 1:58 pm


  175. Gmahoney April 2, 2011 2:01 pm

    Feeling better, Jm?

  176. Pomai April 2, 2011 2:02 pm

    What a beautiful day, the sun is shining, trades are blowing, life is great.

  177. jm2375 April 2, 2011 2:02 pm

    gmahoney – feeling better. Definitely gonna go converse with the Northridge players tonight.

  178. d1shima April 2, 2011 2:03 pm

    Thanks for the practice notes.

    Left wideout Darius Bright made two terrific leaping catches in the corner of the end zone, both over cornerback John Hardy-Tuliau, one of the team’s most athletic defensive backs.

    Payback at UNLV would be sweet! 😈

  179. Gmahoney April 2, 2011 2:05 pm

    Jm, hope you and the screechers will be screeching at the VB game tonight!

  180. d1shima April 2, 2011 2:06 pm

    Sounds like good competition at slots…a good thing.

    (Good competition at slots usually sounds like a lot of bells and whistles! 😆 )

  181. d1shima April 2, 2011 2:07 pm

    VCU and Butler going tooth and nail

  182. d1shima April 2, 2011 2:09 pm

    Geez! STOP pitching to that guy! 🙄 👿 🙁

  183. madeinhawaii April 2, 2011 2:13 pm

    hmm… any potential Defensive Ends expected for Fall camp?

  184. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 2:14 pm


  185. Hiflyer April 2, 2011 2:15 pm

    Looks like the Butler did it with :30.5 left in the game.

  186. jm2375 April 2, 2011 2:16 pm

    Butler did it AGAIN.

  187. jm2375 April 2, 2011 2:18 pm

    BTW, blogs are “owned” by the blogger, in this case, ST. The blogger has the right to do whatever he wants, as long as it’s legal. If it’s a dictatorship, then so be it. If you don’t like it, LEAVE.

  188. jm2375 April 2, 2011 2:20 pm

    Rosehill has a stinger? Didn’t Blaze Soares have a stinger that kept him out of more than a few games? aiyah!

  189. PowderPuff April 2, 2011 2:21 pm

    Waaaaaah! A GS glove?!? Haha! Nah, I will cherish my photo with him in Boise. Haha! I can share the Salasness. 🙂

  190. Stephen Tsai April 2, 2011 2:21 pm

    If somebody does not like the site, why come here?

  191. d1shima April 2, 2011 2:21 pm

    Congratulations PowderPuff!

  192. Stephen Tsai April 2, 2011 2:22 pm


    I think Blaze Soares had a stinger that stemmed from a greater problem.

    The main thing, though, is that Rosehill has recovered from the torn ACL.

  193. d1shima April 2, 2011 2:26 pm

    Hit Parade! 🙂

  194. jm2375 April 2, 2011 2:26 pm

    Basebows feasting on Wichita 11-3 bottom 8th.

  195. jm2375 April 2, 2011 2:34 pm

    12-3 end of 8th. GO BOWS!! 5 run 8th inning including a triple by Kolten Wong.

  196. d1shima April 2, 2011 2:34 pm


    Shocking! 😆

  197. Stephen Tsai April 2, 2011 2:35 pm

    First of all, I’m not interested in debating the ills of softball. If somebody here wishes to do that, that’s fine. But to attack others, incite fights, pout, threaten, make inane analogies, and just be annoying, shows a lack of manners and social grace. Maybe that’s how you were raised.

    Now if some of the regulars get out of hand, I’ll call them up, and ask them to tone it down. And they do, because they have manners and social grace.

    If you were in a room with actual people, and you stated a point, and people did not want to discuss it anymore, wouldn’t you just claim victory and move on to another topic or place? Well, most people would.

    Again, we’re all intelligent people here. We get the point that you don’t think the team is very good, that you don’t think they’re well-coached, and that you would like the coach to be replaced. Now whether that opinion is valid, I don’t know. I’m not qualified to answer that. And you probably aren’t qualified, either. But that’s your opinion. And you’ve uttered your opinion on the subject for long time, and that was fine. But now I’m saying you need to either tone it down or move on to another topic, because the argument hasn’t been advanced and I think the subject has been exhausted.

    I don’t know you personally, and you certainly don’t know me at all, but I think you’d agree that your point is taken, and it’s time to try another topic.

    I do thank you for your passion in stating your case, though.

  198. WahineSoftballFan April 2, 2011 2:37 pm


    #185, Inotherwards, the only people that can say anything here has to an actual Tsaiko member. If not an actual Tsaiko member, you have NO RIGHT, to say anything here.

  199. Lopaka43 April 2, 2011 2:40 pm

    Aloha, Tsaiko Ohana,

    At these times, just follow Liz Kauai’s rule:

    Feed a Tsaiko,

    Starve a Troll.

    Just ignore the troll. All wsf wants is to stir everybody up and to set the agenda for the blog.

  200. jm2375 April 2, 2011 2:40 pm

    d1 – UH made plenny wheat TOAST this weekend!!

  201. Stephen Tsai April 2, 2011 2:41 pm


    Since you’re on here more than anybody else, including the host, I’m sure you’re considered a regular. Maybe a resident, by now.

    I’m just saying you made your point, very vividly in fact. I certainly heard it, and, frankly, I wasn’t paying much attention.

    But it’s time to change topics. I’m sure you would agree, no?

  202. WahineSoftballFan April 2, 2011 2:42 pm


    #198, The Basebows have a very good coaching staff, they know how to make adjustments. This team will go far. You can see the coaching staff has a clue to what they are doing. Not like their counterpart, across the street.

  203. Stephen Tsai April 2, 2011 2:43 pm

    Thanks for moving to another subject, or trying to, Mr. WSF.

  204. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 2:45 pm

    btw, what’s happened to blogger NCAA? Haven’t seen him in a dog’s age. Hope he’s ok.

  205. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 2:49 pm

    This person (a nurse living in Kansas) had this to say on my blog. Can anybody help her? —

    Aloha Gigi –

    Off your topic of ‘skeeters….I noticed the Kansas City Royals baseball team has a Hawaiian on their roster:

    Kila Ka’aihue, from Kailua, Hawaii, in infielder, first baseman, who bats left and throws right, is 6’4″ and weighs 235 pounds! (Sounds like King Kamahemaha himself!)

    Do you know anything else about him? He helped win a game recently. This year, Kansas City’s team is the youngest and poorest paid in the league. You all might have to come visit me!


  206. Lopaka43 April 2, 2011 2:50 pm

    If you want to be part of the Tsaiko’s, you should step out of the dark, and show up at a tailgate, a cattle call, a karaoke night, and meet these good people face to face. Most of us value this space as a place where relationships count, where many of have met face to face, and where we celebrate the 5 or 6 Fs.

    Anybody can post here but if you are trying to pick a fight, prove that only you know what is right, or say vicious things about Hawaii athletes and coaches, you are not going to get a warm reception.

    As the blog host points out, if you don’t like the Tsaiko’s, why hang out with us?

  207. d1shima April 2, 2011 2:54 pm

    re: #198

    A point I made a while back (maybe 2 or 3 trolls ago?) was that the difference in this blog compared to most is that a lot of the posters have met face-to-face more often than not in the context of UH sports, in general, and UH football, in particular. As Stephen stated, common courtesy and decorum (or the fear of getting physically assaulted….whatever works) dictates the rules of discussing topics both related to UHAD and otherwise.

    It works in the real world, it should work here as well….

  208. d1shima April 2, 2011 2:55 pm

    Way to go BaseBows! Bring on the WAC!

  209. Lopaka43 April 2, 2011 2:56 pm

    Amen to that, d1shima!

  210. d1shima April 2, 2011 2:58 pm

    btw, once you post you’re already a Tsaiko. I believe that was established before I even started posting (to the chagrin of Mrs. d1shima….”Hey! Guess what? I’m a Tsaiko!”)

  211. Slugger April 2, 2011 3:01 pm

    I think I need to get a bag of chips before watching more basketball. I know, I know, I’m missing an exciting BesuBaru game. GO BOWS!!!

    Time for a walk…

  212. d1shima April 2, 2011 3:01 pm


    No get all religeez on me now! 😉

  213. al April 2, 2011 3:02 pm

    so the rule of one identity only still applies in the afternoon???

    Two words: Impulse control.

  217. d1shima April 2, 2011 3:05 pm

    Off to Ala Wai!

    Go Crusaders!

    (kama, save me one parking space….pleeeese!)

  218. Stephen Tsai April 2, 2011 3:06 pm

    Hey, Tom Mui.

  219. papajoe2 April 2, 2011 3:06 pm

    Speaking of changing the subject, if the World Series of Poker were to be held here in Hawaii, would the players’ winnings be taxed by out state? They make a whole lot of money and also spend a lot for lodgings, food and other vacationer things. Maybe something to be considered by our legislature. Just asking.

  220. jm2375 April 2, 2011 3:06 pm

    Best wishes to the Giants fan who was beaten by 2 no-class Dodgers fans. Thank goodness we live Hawaii.

  221. jm2375 April 2, 2011 3:07 pm

    GO OWLS!!

  222. papajoe2 April 2, 2011 3:07 pm

    I was looking in the mirror and had a hard time finding my impulse

  224. Lopaka43 April 2, 2011 3:12 pm

    Re: 213

    Nope, this blog which is sponsored by a newspaper belongs to Stephen Tsai who has allowed us into this space, and those of us who lurk and post here are proud to be called Tsaiko’s in honor of our host. And also in recognition of the diverse and passionate nature of all the folks who have been brought together here.

  225. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 3:13 pm

    Example of a generous, kind-hearted Tsaiko:

    Kekoa gave me his now-deceased mother’s golf clubs and a covered bag to hold them.

    Mahalo, Kekoa!

  226. al April 2, 2011 3:14 pm

    st, you should be thanking (name deleted). he alone must help bring a hundred extra comments each time and the number of hits must be 100 fold.

  227. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 3:15 pm

    Now, all I gotta do is find a golf pro who will teach me the fine points of golf and allow me to golf in my long muu…

  228. Lopaka43 April 2, 2011 3:16 pm

    Sorry, d1shima!

    While I was preaching, my prayers were answered and the post went away! LOL!!

  229. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 3:18 pm

    The Pearl Country Club has a nice driving range, and that’s where hubby and I have been practicing in the evening.

  230. Stephen Tsai April 2, 2011 3:18 pm

    Impulse control.

  231. Stephen Tsai April 2, 2011 3:20 pm

    All I asked were:

    • Try another topic.

    • One personality per person.

    Like I said, impulse control.

  232. Jason April 2, 2011 3:35 pm

  233. RedZone April 2, 2011 3:37 pm

    I like Aranda tinkering with a 3 man front. I aways thought that Vaughn and Haku would make good DEs in a 3 – 4. Army used a 3 man front using all DEs.

  234. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 3:42 pm

    What does “saw them live” mean, though? Does watching them on TV count, or does it have to be in person?

  235. Stretch April 2, 2011 3:45 pm

    Just got home from the baseball game. The umpires all series were TERRIBLE!! Bad calls against both teams. Gene Stephenson gets tossed for arguing a call which I thought the umpire got wrong. Adam, the home plate umpire, similar to the first game of the series, is very inconsistent with the balls/strikes. I hope that the Big West umpires are better the WAC guys because they belong at high school games.

    Time for me to take a nap and head back for the volleyball game. It’s going to be my third trip to campus since I went to practice this morning.

  236. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 3:47 pm

    Stretch “sees them live.” Way to go, Stretch. What a die-hard Tsaiko you are!

  237. SteveM April 2, 2011 3:54 pm

    ST — you don’t have too many rules, but this was the first set I recall you posting (December 31, 2006) Many similarities to today…

    I wish to thank everyone for their participation and interest in the blog. It’s been a great six months.

    Every so often I’m reminded this space is owned by a family newspaper. There are certain behavioral standards that need to be met.

    While we appreciate the traffic and, of course, the contributions, we’re now establishing some rules:

    • No name calling.

    • No personal insults to forum participants (and that includes punny references to people’s online names). This rule does not have a sarcasm loophole.

    • Argue fairly.

    • No proxies. The opinion you express is your own.

    • No more titles as nicknames, especially the sort that makes you seem smarmy. Suggestion: If, say, you consider yourself to be the voice of rational thinking, call yourself Solomon. Since I lack wisdom, I would prefer to go by the name Addanosolomon.

    • No taglines. That’s just annoying.

    • No whining. And, especially, no whining about getting deleted, because that whine will be deleted.

    Yeah, I know I’m being a party-pooper. But on the chance that one of our administrators will actually read this blog, I don’t want to get called into the principal’s office to explain the debate between passion orange and guava juice. After all, all fruit drinks are equally tasteful.

    Have a fun and safe New Year’s Eve, and a great 2007.

    You have been remarkably consistent over the years… or should I say the situations/people that caused you to write the rules have been consistently repetitive over the years? 🙂

    Very repetitive … nuthin’ new.

    The fourth anniversary of a very significant rule you added is coming up: The “9:00 PM (or 2100) Rule”. We have been very consistent about that… if you consider the Tsai-kos are world-wide… 🙂

  238. jm2375 April 2, 2011 3:58 pm

  239. Hiflyer April 2, 2011 4:53 pm

    Does anyone remember who Butler beat last year to make it to the finals?

  240. Jason April 2, 2011 5:11 pm

    Michigan State. (Had to look it up, though.)

  241. Lopaka April 2, 2011 5:29 pm


    You should be a little more professional and not go after guys who have a different opinion than the handful of regulars that post everyday. No one cares what I think because I don’t read this blog everyday, and I’m no longer part of the UH staff., But I am a UH alum and former player, and I am still interested in UH football so I check in on time to time. Some people say stupid things, but so do some regulars. I can think of a few who post about softball quite a bit that are really irritating. I just choose to ignore their posts. But it surprises me that you choose to take a side with this nonsense when you’re the blog host. You can ignore me too, but it does show a little unprofessionalism.

  242. Pomai April 2, 2011 5:32 pm

    #231 ST – that’s what I need when I go out to eat, but never happens.

  243. tommui April 2, 2011 5:33 pm

    ST – howzit?

    You mean #232 my alter ego is now verboten?

    But only when I go into my schizo mode do I debate with myself. (Yes you do – no you don’t).

    Besides how can I confuse AL if #232 is enforced?

  244. Kazz on Droid_X April 2, 2011 5:36 pm


    Im not apologizing to that piece of trash.

    I told it how I felt and I meant it.

  245. Slugger April 2, 2011 5:38 pm

    Hey, tommui,

    Welcome back. Sorry you didn’t get to meet my Aunty & Uncle on the cruise.

    I forget what your alter-ego is. But the big question is: What happens to koamahu? hahahaha

  246. Hiflyer April 2, 2011 5:40 pm

    thanks Jason

  247. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 5:46 pm

    I don’t know why people feel the need to change their identity. What’s up with that?

    I have been gigi-hawaii since 1997 and I’ll continue to be gigi-hawaii.

  248. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 5:48 pm


    Has anybody told you that you are the sweetest blog host, ever? I always chuckle at your witty comments.

    But, I am glad you are monitoring the WB more closely now. Some trolls never learn…

  249. Kazz on Droid_X April 2, 2011 5:50 pm


    By ignoring the softball-related posts you are admitting you are not familiar with the REAL problem.

    FIRST of all, I do want to say this is not from a FEW people, it’s ONE individual posting under a few names.

    All REAL softball related talk is relegated to maybe 4-5 of us and that’s about it. It’s fine that people’s opinion and their own bias that they still do NOT acknowledge Rainbow Wahine softball as a legitimate part of UH athletics, but that is beside the point…

    Second of all, said INDIVIDUAL has cited many false instances towards unsubstantiated claims and has included actual individuals as part of these false conversations.

    Stephen is showing some CLASS by eliminating falsified information slanted to be passed on as truth with regards to past student-athletes and current ones to prevent further character assassination from individuals said individual claims to know or converse with when it is FACT that this is not the case.

  250. iwonderwhytheyhateme April 2, 2011 5:58 pm

    i like the doom and gloom discussions about UH athletics…and the armchair qb comments when unless u are working in the departments or ur uncle is, your probably don’t know $h*t.

    So what. You know that, and I know that. The guy says some crazy stuff. You don’t have to censor him. I’m a football guy, so I know about football related things. I know for a fact that false things have been said about June here. No one censored any of those posts. I know they’re false. Some of you make your own opinions. But why acknowledge them. I know the truth. All I’m saying is this is supposed to be a public site. We’re going to only let people post that agree with everyone else now?

  252. iwonderwhytheyhateme April 2, 2011 5:59 pm

    oh, and hello blog.

  253. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 6:02 pm

    what, are there 2 Lopakas now? Lopaka 43 and Lopaka? It’s getting confusing.

    True it is a public site. But WSF said he and his “attorney” were going to meet with the president/publisher of the Star-Advertiser regarding ST and this blog.

    When a troll makes that kind of threat, some measures have to be taken. So ST picked a side, our side. He wants what the majority wants: a happy blog that gives pleasure to the Tsaikos.

    Hi gigi,

    No, I totally understand that. ST and I talked and I understand where he’s coming from and I’m totally cool with that. I’m a UH alum and I still cheer on UH in all sports. But I just don’t like it when one person is getting ganged up on because he doesn’t post what everyone else wants to hear. But after talking with ST, I totally see his point of view.

  258. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 6:35 pm

    That sounds cool until someone beats you up for something you said. You wouldn’t like it. I’m the kind of guy, if I saw someone getting his ass beat for no reason, I would help him.

    OT College Board Warning today- someone hacked their system, got names, first and last, and email addresses. Check for spam, also College Board wrote that they do not call or follow up with email asking personal financial info that you would put on for loans, grants, etc.

    It’s been over 5 years since I filled out a College Board application for my daughter, there must be a lot of names on the system that got hacked.

    gigi —

    The man named Lopaka that we know is at SMU…the real one with JJ.

    Lopaka43 we’ve seen at tailgates and karaoke for years.

  271. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 7:53 pm


    I am thoroughly confused. I thought the guy with JJ was Guava.

    Jason I got that from the college board through my e mail, it’s no longer April 1. Something about Epsilon being hacked.

  278. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 8:02 pm


    Well, one of the things that were said about Guava was that he was “well-connected,” meaning he knew the ins and outs of the athletic dept.

    He doesn’t blog here anymore, so I assumed he’d left with JJ.

  279. Lopaka April 2, 2011 8:04 pm


    If he did, it wasn’t me. It could have been one of the other coaches, but I don’t know. I can honestly say that it wasn’t me.

  280. Ralph April 2, 2011 8:05 pm

    Jason forwarded the email to you

  281. gigi-hawaii April 2, 2011 8:06 pm

    We’re doing great here. Turning the program around like we did at Hawaii. We’re starting to attract some major recruits. There’a a lot we have to overcome, but that’s why we get paid the big bucks. Jeff is doing great. I think he’s engaged to a beautiful girl from Dallas.

    Is a blog set up by an individual – even though he may be an employee of the newspaper – and was not required by his employer to set up a blog – is it a private blog?

    If it is a private blog, I would guess that the blog host has the right to impose rules.

    If some jacka** continues to spread his poison under various names, and is told to quit it but continues, I would image that the blog host has the perfect right to smu’d it or knock him off as a poster.

    If he wants to claim “free speech” and argues that it is a public forum, then perhaps, like letters to the editor, he has to post it under his real name.

    Then at least we know his identity.

  304. madeinhawaii April 2, 2011 9:51 pm


    What if the server that the blog is on was located in some country where there is no law dictating freedom of speech?

  305. Lopaka April 2, 2011 9:51 pm

    Oh, I don’t think I heard it before. We didn’t get fired so I just thought it was strange to use it in that context. JJ loves Hawaii. I’m sure he would want to come back to finish his coaching career. The question really should be does UH want him back. They did sue him.

  306. LizKauai (macbook) April 2, 2011 9:51 pm

    the smu’d term was pre-JJ, I think…

  308. Lopaka April 2, 2011 10:10 pm

    Tommui re:297

    I think regardless if ST is doing this blog on his own or not, it is on the Star Advertiser website and therefore part of a public site. There are some censorship rules like the use of profanity and stuff like that, but can the Star Advertiser refuse to publish an editorial or letter to the editor if it disagrees with the authors position? I think probably not. Now, I understand where ST is coming from where apparently ST let him have his say but the guy kept going on and on and it was getting out of hand. But if that’s the case, some of the regulars may not like it when ST does the same to them.

  309. al April 2, 2011 10:13 pm

    smu’d came after jj accepted the job.

    lopaka, and yes i believe the state would embrace a return by jj.

  310. Kazz on Droid_X April 2, 2011 10:14 pm


    April 2nd, 2011 at 7:04 pm


    That sounds cool until someone beats you up for something you said. You wouldn’t like it. I’m the kind of guy, if I saw someone getting his ass beat for no reason, I would help him.

    If someone saw a stranger getting WHOOPED on by another individual, NOT a 2-1 or 3-1 situation, who would know if the individual getting whooped on didn’t deserve it?

    What if the guy getting beaten up stole the other guy’s car or did something to his family, etc… or other reasons.

    However, this is NOT the point.

    The point is we live in a society of consequences. In this case, one cannot say that this blog belongs to the public. Yes, ST has said in the past that he is not the author but rather the readers/bloggers are the authors. REALITY shows that this blog is operated by the Star Advertiser and ultimately Stephen Tsai can edit content for various reasons.

    The twisted individual that causes issues here IS free to start his OWN blog much like how some here have their own on that blogspot thing and he can go to town as much as he wants. Sure, some people like me will maybe come across his own blog and tell him to go eff off or go bite the curb and sure he can go ahead and delete or ban my IP address. That is HIS right as well as it’s his space.

    This blog is open for people to post, but people are not EXEMPT from being deleted due to actions that cause a disturbance under the rules of said blog set forth by the people that operate it, maintain it, and paid for it.

    For the most part, people here are passionate about UH sports and are more willing to give UH student-athletes and coaches the benefit of the doubt, some HAVE come on here to argue and say otherwise but they have NOT been banned.

    It’s rare that some can come on here and argue their opposing point without getting personal, MOST people FAIL, then resort to name-calling, then all hell breaks loose.

    I do the same and I have had my comments deleted. I just had one deleted today. I knew it would be deleted and I didn’t care. Do I call ST and cry and threaten so-called legal action? No. Then again, I was taught that when you do something wrong there are consequences so I accept that as part of this society.

    Some don’t, they think they are never wrong. They might be the type to get invited to dinner to someone else’s house, eat the food, complain about the food openly, go #2 in their bathroom and won’t light a match or use the can of air freshener next to the sink, call the family dog “ugly”, then they get asked to leave and then call the host a bad host and everyone else at the dinner party a bunch of losers for not doing the same as he did and openly telling him to watch his mouth.

    Who’s the idiot?


    Next time you see one individual getting worked on by one other individual and not in a 2-1 or 3-1 situation maybe you should wonder if that guy didn’t have it coming.

    So again, the analogy is simple. You get one guy out there yellling out loud that he hates people of a certain ethnicity. I’m sure NO one would argue his 1st amendment right. Most would pass him by. However, someone of the ethnicity he hates walks by and then s— gets real. The man of color is really beating the loudmouth down.

    The man of color will eventually get arrested for assault. That is his consequence. The loudmouth is now a vegetable with a feeding tube attached. This is also his consequence and it all happened in a public place…

    Somehow I don’t see mass protests occuring for either invdividual. Some might.

    In the end, if this happened in real life, you know what the majority of most people will end up thinking once the air is clear?

    This life has consequences of all ranges.

  311. al April 2, 2011 10:15 pm

    i kinda of miss those piped conch shells blaring, the primal drums and chanting. that really got the crowd hyped up.

    this and the haka was something that mack should have kept.

  312. Kazz on Droid_X April 2, 2011 10:16 pm

    I’m not a lawyer so all I am going to say is this:

    WSF is an ass. A GIANT LONELY ONE.

    He gets his crap deleted here. Who the hell really loses sleep over it.

    People have criticized many UH sports here and depending on the content, it doesn’t get deleted.

    —holes get their filth deleted. PERIOD.

  313. Kazz on Droid_X April 2, 2011 10:19 pm


    When did Mack get rid of the haka or ha’a??????????????????????????????????????????

    Last I seen, our Warriors continued the haka EVERY season since 2008.

    Actually t’was the ha’a in 08 crafted by Keao Monteilh along with Keala Watson.

    Then we used the Maori HAKA in 09 and last season. Both hakas were “Tika Tonu”, similar to what Kahuku does.

  314. Kazz on Droid_X April 2, 2011 10:22 pm

    The Star Advertiser runs other various means of allowing the public to post in stories on the website.

    These have guidlines against posting attacks, profanity, etc…

    Again, open to the public, but there are RULES.

    Can’t go to Waimea and take a dump in the ocean and urinate on someone’s beach towel.

  315. Lopaka April 2, 2011 10:23 pm


    That’s the way you see things. I don’t. If I see someone getting his butt kicked, I’m not one of the cowards who stand on the side and yell kick his butt or throw a false crack in for good measure. I’ll break it up. If he did do something wrong, let the right people take care of it. I already heard why ST banned this guy and I agree. But it goes both ways sometimes. If there is an argument on here I’m sure the guy wasn’t arguing with himself. ST put an end to it, but I’m sure he could have banned some guys on the other end of the argument as well.

    Life does have it’s consequences. I try to stay above all of the pettiness. Whatever the guy said, if I didn’t like it, I would laugh, say my piece back then move on.

  316. Kazz on Droid_X April 2, 2011 10:25 pm

    IP addresses and log in emails only known by staff and not made known to the general public is on file with the Star Advertiser.

    Someone with a trend of causing disturbances can be researched as apparently this same individual caused a mess on another blog also hosted by the Star Advertiser and a staff member.


  317. Kazz on Droid_X April 2, 2011 10:26 pm

  318. Lopaka April 2, 2011 10:27 pm

    and if this is truly a “private” blog, i’m sure i’m not welcomed here as well since i’ve been smu’d. but i think i’ll just continue to blog here every once in awhile anyway.

  319. al April 2, 2011 10:27 pm

    i believe there was a brief hiatus of sorts and the haka was vanished. then, due to public pressure the ha’a broke through. finally, the haka returned.

  320. al April 2, 2011 10:28 pm

    lopaka was not smu’d. unless you aren’t the real lopaka….?

  321. Lopaka April 2, 2011 10:29 pm

    The ha’a was used in the 2007 Sugar Bowl season and I think Brad Kalilimoku and Keala created it while we were in the hotel in Houston for the LaTech and UNLV games.

  322. Lopaka April 2, 2011 10:30 pm

    I’m at SMU so what does smu’d mean?

  323. Kazz on Droid_X April 2, 2011 10:34 pm


    Rocky Savaiigaea was quoted in saying that the haka was not practiced due to them wanting to focus more on football itself. T’was a rough year in 09. It returned for home game against Fresno State in 2009 as they did it right at the mouth of the inflateable football helmet. T’was “Tika Tonu”.

    Mack NEVER got rid of it.

  324. Kazz on Droid_X April 2, 2011 10:38 pm

    My phone is dying and my beer is getting cold….

    while smu did receive the proverbial “death sentence of football” decades ago, the tsaiko developed term “smu’d” had nothing to do with this incident. smu’d developed its use on this blog in reference to one having his posts deleted and/or if and when said persona(s) were unable to post a comment because of his ip address being blocked out.

  335. al April 2, 2011 11:55 pm

    i forgot.

  336. Stephen Tsai April 3, 2011 12:06 am

    There’s a Law & Order term known as depraved indifference. For instance, if you throw a rock from a roof, while you might not have intended to cause any harm, you still will be held responsible because a reasonable person should know such an action will likely cause injury.

    What should widely be known is that several regulars are board members of the UH softball team’s booster club. There also are several parents of players who follow this site. So a reasonable person should know that making personal attacks toward the softball team will ignite strong reactions. I’ve allowed criticism of the program to be printed here for the past few weeks. But there came a point — and a lot of redundancy — where it was apparent that the criticism wasn’t to express an opinion but to incite an angry reaction. So I’ve asked the person, in all of his identities, to tone it down a bit. But, obviously, good manners aren’t his priority. Now, if a man rattles a stick to anger a tiger, what’s the solution? I’m not going to get rid of the tiger. And while I could get rid of the man — there’s a way I could ban him from accessing the newspaper online — I don’t want to do that. The answer is to take away the stick until it is used properly.

    While people think they have the right to say whatever they feel, they can’t do it behind the cloak of anonymity. There’s a fairness issue that the people being critiqued — and we’re talking 18- and 19-year-old women — deserve to be able to confront their accusers.

    Because the topic is getting nowhere, and all sides have presented their opinions ad nauseum, it’s best to change subjects.

    This isn’t a request.

    And if people don’t like the rules, if they don’t like the people here, they don’t have to come here.

    That’s pretty funny.

    UH is in sole possession of fourth place now. But because their regular season ends a week earlier. the Warriors will have to at least split with USC and hope for other teams to lose.

    Walker set a personal record for hitting percentage. He and Umlauft did not have an error in the third set.

  342. cocobean April 3, 2011 12:17 am

    Been out of town for a while. Must have missed some fireworks.

    Read the Star-tiser and most of it’s blogs. Read this blog for UH sports information and like the UH tidbits that often times only appear here or appear here first.

    Been a lurker from the beginning, posting once in a great while.

    That being said, it’s my opinion that posters like WSF and Steve(or has it been proven they are the same person), have the right to post and defend their opinions. They add to the “entertainment” value of this blog.

    Don’t have much emotional investment in this blog, not like the regulars posters that keep this going. But I do find WSF and Steve humorous in how passionately they believe their opinions are right and everyone else is wrong. I find it funny that no amount of reasoning, criticsim or cajoling can move them off their stance. It’s humorous how oblivious they are as to how others perceive them.

    Don’t ban them, let them post.

    al – he was taking home some of the leftover juice from the postgame meal. didn’t want the strawberry-guava…

  344. al April 3, 2011 12:18 am

    a thought just occurred to me…miami dolphins eyeballing kealoha pilares as a running back (again).

    this could mirror the path of one gary allen who as a university of hawaii wide receiver volunteered for running back duties and the rest was history as he became probably the all time rb during the day and went on to play for the houston oilers and the dallas cowboys.

  345. al April 3, 2011 12:21 am

    btw…jm#### it is real nice that you guys, including the ahouse ohana, provide a post game potluck and drinks for the mvb team.

    is it only in hawaii that we do that kind of stuff?

    isn’t it also done by the baseball team’s ohana?

    lucky you play hawaii.

  346. jm2375 April 3, 2011 12:29 am

    al – one of the benefits of booster club membership, at least for MVB, are the potlucks and post-game meals. They are voluntary, but provide a great way to get to know the players personally. They are all really appreciative of it and let us know. The parents are also very appreciative.

  347. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc April 3, 2011 12:37 am

    Anyone interested in a ticket to the Koa Anuennue fundraiser on Wednesday?

    Anyone interested two free baseball tickees for next Friday night’s baseball game and one tickee for next Saturday’s doubleheader? I’ll go watch some softball after the first baseball game until the volleyball match when DrDoc will join me.

    I am so glad that this is the last triple header weekend of UH sports until next year.

    Let me know by sending an e-mail to swood at hoku dot com – be sure to include your complete contact information and, of course, your (real) name.

    Recorded both basketball games and watched the Butler-VCU game after we came home from the volleyball match. Saved an hour-plus by recording and zapping through the ads and inane comments. We’ll watch the second game tomorrow afternoon.

    DrDoc kept texting me from The Les during my meeting this afternoon – several other Bowsball fans were in attendance so I shared the messages with them throughout the meeting.

    Re Hawaii Professional Football League. If anyone here is interested in getting involved with the League in any kind of capacity, please let me know as I have been working with key legislators to help support it from an economic development perspective.

    Another busy day tomorrow – or later on this afternoon – so it’s off to bed.

  348. al April 3, 2011 12:38 am

    yah…that is an awesome thing. i know how it is to be so far away from home and home cooking. after awhile the campbell soup and rice gets ‘old’.

    i had someone do that for me twice when i was away. those meals are still in my memory bank and those folks…ww.

  349. Stephen Tsai April 3, 2011 12:39 am

    Of course, many wouldn’t know that Lopaka never posted here under his real name, but anything’s possible. However, this should have been the dead giveaway…


    April 2nd, 2011 at 7:59 pm


    I have no clue who this Guava is. Never heard of him. When I posted here, there were a few people who said welcome back Guava, which kind of confused me as well.

  351. Whothefcaresaboutsmu April 3, 2011 12:45 am

    #337, I moderate forums, it is left to my judgement based on the forum rules/bylaws to decide what is acceptable. In ALL of the forums I moderate, the rules say if a person has a question, issue, etc about how the forum is moderated. Contact must be made with the administrators through, PM, e-mail but not via posting on the boards in the forum. This would have probably avoided some of the issues.

    If this person was a member on a forum I moderated , he would have been banned along time ago for sock puppets, personal attacks, not following warnings from a moderator. So I don’t understand how a person could question moderation of this blog. Seems to me this person was given many chances but decided to take the path he did.

    #309, It is up to the StarAdvertiser. It is not censorship, the staradvertiser sets the rules people who post do so with the consent of the staradvertiser. lol, the point about people ganging up on one person, I guess if it was just for a different opinion than that would be true but this person had sock puppets, personal attacks etc. He was also given numerous warnings.

    lol, fwiw looks like quite a few new sock puppets being created tonight

  352. Stephen Tsai April 3, 2011 12:46 am

    It’s the real Lopaka.

    I called him and said: OK, here’s the real deal.

    Then he was like: Now I understand.

  353. jm2375 April 3, 2011 12:48 am

    I know I’m preaching to the choir here, but this needs to be emphasized to the people on upper campus and in “the square building on S. Beretania St”

    (from Ferd’s column today on the incoming HPU president)

    The kind of following that has sent applications skyrocketing, donations soaring and Facebook fans growing by leaps and bounds.

  355. Darren April 3, 2011 12:50 am

    Is the revised D a 3-3-5, with the “elephant” moving to rush end when needed? Is this the same as the previous Okie scheme, or is there a difference?

  356. SteveM April 3, 2011 12:53 am

    My apologies to Lopaka in Dallas.

    His comments seemed so out of character and consistent with certain sock puppets.

    ST — please delete my #351.

    …but he should have known about Guava and how he fit in the time line. 😐

  357. iwonderwhytheyhateme April 3, 2011 12:57 am

    I never followed softball except when a good friend of mine played for the team few years ago when they went to the championship.

    So I can’t speak to how good or bad they are.

    I can speak to people who throw around words like gestapo…That is, if you can freely throw around a name like that and label someone the heinrich himmler of cyberspace and the blog world, you are obviously 1) an uneducated fool 2) suffering from massive brain damage or probably both…I find crap like that immensely offensive.

    So unless you find the blog host throwing you into a pizza oven, save your inflammatory comments and labeling for talk radio.

  358. SteveM April 3, 2011 12:57 am

    Football: I am curious on what Coach Tomey is drawing up…

  359. al April 3, 2011 12:57 am

    nice to see reports about the progress of the younger players.

    at one point i was afraid that kamalani alo would be lost in the shuffle. good to see him surface. at kahuku, he was the enforcer.

    i am hoping that auloa tonga will have his career spun around as well.

  360. al April 3, 2011 12:59 am

    gotta love those kahuku boys. not only are they talented, they are polite, good students, and they work hard for everything they got.

  361. jm2375 April 3, 2011 12:59 am

    al – not sure if the other teams’ booster clubs do anything like it, but when there’s only 4.5 scholarships to spread around, there isn’t really a “training table” like the football team has.

  362. al April 3, 2011 1:22 am

    don’t the baseball folks stil fire up the hibachi in back of the les for both home and visitors?

  363. jm2375 April 3, 2011 1:23 am

    I’m still on mvb topic – ST, why isn’t UH getting the local guys?

    Noticed the 3 Hawaii boys on Northridge’s roster. The one who did not make the trip is one of Tino Reyes’ sons.

  375. Michigan Warrior April 3, 2011 4:55 am

    #258… Lopaka… While back home during the first half of last month, I attended a few Wahine Softball games. This anonymous blogger was pointed out to me; only a few feet away from me. He sat quietly by himself, watching the game. Despite the venom he spews here on this blog, not once did I see/hear him get up to run his mouth to the coaches, players, or fellow fans about the poor coaching, hitting, fielding, or even the constant rain delays. Why? Because he knows that if he did such disruptive acts out in public, he’d probably be arrested for such behavior, and maybe even banned from campus. (Yes, there are rules posted that govern our actions at any NCAA-sanctioned event.) Doesn’t matter that we’re out in public, or that we have freedom of speech… there still are rules of law and etiquette to follow. He didn’t do it because he knows there’s a place and time for everything. He hides behind his computer to unleash his poisonous attacks and taunts. Then cries foul when he’s called on it. He obviously enjoys instigating arguments.

    By now, his verbal attacks on student-athletes are legendary. And so is his imagined expertise in volleyball and baseball/softball. (I mean, c’mon, if he can coach better than Coach Shoji or Coach Coolen, why hasn’t he put in his application and started a petition to replace them?) It’s one thing to be critical of our sports teams and coaches… it’s another when he personally attacks our kids.

  376. Michigan Warrior April 3, 2011 5:38 am

    Eh, howzit, WaFan! Hope you getting good weather for the start to your spring break. We’re at 40 now. High today will be 49 at midnight… continuing to 60 at noon tomorrow… but with thunderstorms. But, at least the kids are home. Wish I could afford to homeschool them instead. At least they’re off next week.

    The great thing about America is that you can set up your own blog or forum within minutes and in many cases for free or you can even set up your own web site. You can get many followers by linking it using twitter or facebook.

    The solution is to create your own blog which allows you to exercise your 1st amendment rights and as the owner of the blog you don’t even have to allow comments.

    Changing the subject, but maybe the wrong place for this. It was nice to see the hard nosed defensive players made the All State basketball team in today’s SA. 5 players from the rugged ILH made All State 1st team even though they averaged less than 10 points per game. Defense wins games. I was waiting for the other newspaper’s All State team as they usually have a different voting procedure but……. they’re no other paper. This is it. I wished the article would mention a little about the other players though. Only a few names appeared in the article. i would like to know what college they will be attending, etc.

    Sorry to beat this to death, but this is what the First Amendment says:

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    TomMui can correct me if I am wrong, but I take this to mean that you can be banned from any blog because Congress did not pass a law prohibiting you from blogging or try to put you in prison for what you said. As Last Call said, you can also start your own website, I know I am still waiting for the roysan blog.
