Swindle? I didn't know that was a term used in the legal world. Always figured they would just use the words embezzlement or extortion, depending on the situation. Learn something new everyday.

The time that Brewerfan made Deadspin. That was hilarious.

MLB Pitcher is a generous headline.

Cards' fans wear jorts.

"Theft by swindle" sounds like something an 11-year old kid would get slapped with after committing a crime on the Atlantic City Boardwalk in the 1920's.

Theft by Swindell? This is obviously false. Greg did not steal a base in his entire career.

That was both hilarious and sad. Dude was a major jerk and some of the stuff he posted here was quite funny for how petty they were. However I felt bad his ex wife felt the need to come on here and apologize for him. I also felt the way the posters here handled her was pretty nice. I'd say classy but that word is ruined forever.

There needs to be a King Thames version of the bible.

I've tried finding the thread(s) where his dad was on here. Do they exist and if so would anyone be so kind as to provide a viewtopic link?

Yea, I think that happened right before my time here. All I can say, Coach Cooper would never stand for the players' dads getting involved with his team.

It's been so long that it would take some super sleuthing to find it but basically Ben's dad came on here ripping the org for this that and the other thing. Someone told Deadpsin and they posted a short story with quotes and what not. Eventually Ben's mom (estranged from the dad) came on to apologize for him. The dad was a real piece of work. I think he held a grudge against MLB because they never scouted him or something to that effect.

Guessing that was about 2004? As for link to that thread I am guessing it disappeared when the site went through the big migration back in 2004-2005. Someone else might know better than me though. It wasn't archived I know that for certain.

Yeah, I was here (on BF) for his dad's epic meltdown. I didn't know we got mentioned on Deadspin! That's awesome!

I think it made it to Deadspin. I have a very clear memory of someone on here getting upset that another poster would tip them off about it. I could be confusing this story with another one though but I'm fairly certain it was the Hendrickson dad thread.

Ben's dad would attack anyone who criticized his son. He sent PMs to people, went after them on the site, etc. I even got a PM from him once - although it was only mildly combative.

No it was Bf.net. I was here back then and only ever knew this as .net. That was back when Jim Powell used to pimp the site on the radio which is how I found it.
