Cool. Things to remember: 1. have a thick skin 2. don't take comments personally 3. if @Dochalo makes a comment, there's a 99.7% chance it is correct  4. conversely, there's @CALZO

New to the forum and appreciate the invite by Chuck.  I'm long time Angels fan with earliest memories going to games during '77-'78 seasons with Joe Rudi, Frank Tanana, Nolan Ryan, and company.  My fa

Hey everyone, been reading these boards for years. Finally decided to join.  Grew up in Corona/Newport Beach, lived in Fullerton for school and Anaheim for quite a few years (absolutely awful pla

Before banning me, let me start by saying I come in peace. I am not a troll.

 

My name is Nick and I am a diehard Rangers fan. (Even got married in the ballpark, engaged at opening day, etc.)

 

Now to the meat and potatoes of it. I have always been a fan of hearing different opinions on various topics. I used to read newspapers from other cities to to get an outsiders opinion on my team, then I found the world of message boards. Much easier to get a good feel for how another teams fans feel about trades, rivalry, and even in game moves on the fly. I have lurked at this board for a couple seasons and it seems to be one of the more active and all around better boards when it comes to the Angels. If you all have any interest in a biased Ranger fans opinion, who isn't here to start any trouble I am willing to stick around and throw in my two cents when I feel appropriate. If not I understand and I can fade back into the background. All I ask is some semblance of a mutual respect, and a refrain from personal attacks on myself.

 

I am more than willing to answer any questions you guys want to throw my way.

Very good. Don't be bashful. These guys don't bite. Especially in the soccer forum, they're pretty timid, but also really knowledgeable of the sport.

I look forward to the discussions then, especially coming into the key part of the season.

Also notice you're a Seahawks fan which is cool as that's who I follow too!

Yeah, huge Seahawks fan since '83. I'm really loving their team going into this season with the additions they've made and the success following their 2012 season.

Long time, me just since 2005 but I agree, I love this team right now, got huge confidence already for next season. Harvin was one missing piece, Avril and Bennett were fantastic additions to the pass rush and if we get Branch signed up I think we are in the position of being able to go BPA in the draft. This is such a complete team now and we need to make the most of it whilst we can afford to keep them all. Next years extensions might be difficult

John Taylor here, i was jtaylor944 on the old board, I did a "Red Onion" article, and created the satire website "Fake Halos News", this year i decided to go more serious because I'm a stats nerd, and created "he Halo Report" which is kind of a simple stats based website about the Angels. When I did the satire thing it was quite fun because I was able to come up with stuff of the top of my head that was pretty funny, but then I started putting pressure on myself, i kind of lost the "mojo" to do it anymore (and stay funny), so i went legit, lol

 

Born in HB, family were season ticket holders from '86 to 2002, now live in Idaho, representing Angels love here in the land of potatoes!
