This speaks to the core issue for Fordham, as it relates to the current state of the program; after nearly two decades of well-intentioned tries (IMO), the lack of competency, decision making, leadership, hiring choices, facilities (including not building a new arena)call into question whether competing at this level is possible.

Everyone understands what having a Dayton's(UD) arena, or Villanova's commitment to a program, can do to help a school's overall athletic profile (and related recognition). However, not every institution can achieve it. Just like we don't play FBS football any longer (and not likely in the future), basketball needs to find a conference where we place numbers in the left side of the ledger. Winning matters, pride and excellence, at whatever conference or level is what counts, and losing is not fun (year after year) ... and it has to stop.

47 posts from this ram ram. Around 40 of them have exactly the same message, just worded differently. The other 7 say he is not from Iona.

I also noticed that he must have the "private message" thing turned off, therefore not allowing others to PM him.

He might be a Fordham grad, but he is not a Fordham man. Nobody that truly cared about their alma mater would trash their own school on a conference message board the way he does.

You are correct I am a Fordham Grad, but I am also a Fordham man. In fact I am closer to the definition than many are on the other board. I dared to make the issue part of a discussion (mirroring the commercial you will see on the Saturday's YES broadcast) in a venue where ideas could be discussed in the Jesuit tradition. Rather than an intellectual discussion, people started to ignorantly chanted; plant,troll, IONA grad, etc.

I admit I give it out as well as being able take it, but many (not you and the majority of posters), are a bullying, misguided cabal to supress other opinions - and they are Fordham men?

Not everyone was calling you those things. You cannot expect all to accept your controversial message with open arms. When encountered with some adversity, you decided to close shop and take your message to a place you knew it would be better received. You might think you are a Fordham man, but your actions say otherwise. The fact that some of those who you say bullied might not be Fordham men either is irrelevant. I would like to be proven otherwise, but that is up to you.

ram ram.. I tried to debate you with facts and you always deflected. I then resorted to name calling - which I do not apologize for. (I call them like I see them) I love that you reference the Fordham commercial about being the debate capitol of the world, yet would never debate me.

It was also predictable that you waited for the Dayton debacle to chime in, but conveniently went missing when we beat the Dukes, and played both UMass and Charlotte tight. You are really classless coming to this forum to trash your alma mater. There are enough people who do so here and you knew you would get a captivated and agreeable audience.

I'll gladly talk/debate with you if you can find that pdf file that shows Fordham athletics has a .200 winning percentage over the last 25 years. Still waiting..
