I remember when i first got it I loved it so much and it made me love the hobby all over again so for that I owe you a lot! You've been a very good friend and the board is losing a great member, when I think of beckett I think of you honestly! Your the most active person here and have done a lot for this site. Whoever is accusing you of cheating is just plain stupid and its them who should leave the boards!

The only reason I take the fun out of it for you, is because I call you out on your BS. You know what takes the fun out of the hobby?? People running "competitions" and then "winning" everyone's cards when they had nobody else really had a chance to begin with.
There is no feasible way that a $5 card was turned into a Pujols Auto without some type of shady business going down... I don't know what exactly went down, but something isn't adding up.
And let's not lie to anybody here, clearly your last thread was deleted because you were called out and you were shook that people would educate themselves by reading it.
Let's also be honest about another topic, you never liked me ever since you sent me a few insulting offers that I declined. I didn't want to trade in your favor or take your basic crap off your hands for my higher end stuff and that's when this all started. Sorry that I wasn't the naive newbie that you were hoping to take advantage of. Between that and you trying to act like a moderator on the message baords, you were already on a my short list of people I try to stay away from on this site. Then when I read about things like this shady stuff going down, it just sets me off. You wonder why the newer members of this site get turned off so quickly and leave? It's because situations like these make it very hard to trust anyone. Had I been in this competition, I would had been super pissed that I basically just gave you one of my higher end cards. People running a competition shouldn't be allowed to participate, and the participants also should only send their card directly to the winner at the end of it, and the moderators should be the judges. Just throwing some suggestions out there.

Good luck Derek.... we will miss you here. You have been a class act as far as I am concerned.

Those people making accusations should be ready to step up and manage some of the popular things on this site - Secret Santa, gift thread, etc. Because the guy who ran those is now leaving/gone. I never got the chance to hammer out a trade with him, but it wasn't through lack of effort. And on more than one occasion he'd send me links to Ebay auctions for players and cards I'd mentioned or commented on in threads and I can't imagine I was the only one he did that for.

You are saying that some of the most established members on here who traded derek during the competition helped him cheat other members..Come on dude really.. everyone is telling you that you are taking this too far and to just be queit you have said the jerk like things that you wanted so leave it alone now and just try to act like you have some class..i never comment on the boards in the two and half years ive been here but man you just like to hate on good people and then keep on going...enough

Sorry but that's the way it looks to me, he got questioned and is now leaving to avoid backlash... You should be thanking me for pointing this out and saving you from potentially getting ripped off too.

I have only stopped due to being 10,000 miles away but I plan to start again in June or July. You have never done me wrong in trades and I have never heard anyone complain about you on the boards so I would not stop trading maybe you should just take a break for a little while.

Are you just one of those people who likes to cause trouble and then when a person is just trying to say goodbye you want to laugh at them..really classy dude really classy.
