This has so much potential to be epic.

I can see it now, his ass getting booed downtown, eggs being chucked in his direction, banners being waved to the effect of "you broke our heart", chants being started.

and then, he'll lose it, oooh, he'll lose it. He'll go off on some sort of rant involving how bad we've look in front of the kids. Doesn't matter.

Let's face it: lynching him anywhere is going to look bad. Just have to swallow that pill and take care of business. But if it has to be dark and quiet we can do it at a Tribe game.

The way he shrugged off the jersey burning? I'm sort of leaning towards it.

I think in his mind, he thinks that he's still tight with a good portion of Akron.

If he was smart at all, he'd hand it off to Josh Cribbs to lead it.

Valid point. He didn't show up for multiple games in the EC Semis so he can definitely be elusive. He'll do what Pablo Escobar did and fund it from afar.


Can't believe he didn't call it a Bike-a-Bron. Did Maverick and the boys do their internship with BP?

My read on the piece is that it was purpose driven to find people that would support him... FWIW Fuck Fox for this fair and balanced shit. Was easier when you knew 100% where the bias lied. When they were upfront with that shit...

I know who is what, just commenting on the need to ALWAYS show both sides.

I would only worry about how we look to the country, if the whole freaking country didn't think he was a classless self-centered moron.

If he shows, the country figures he gets what's coming to him.

I have one jersey left. Let's hang it on the wall, charge $25 per to urinate on it, and donate it to Children's. I bet we raise more money than Bron paid for those bicycles. We'll call it the "Piss on the Pansy Fund".

oh i'm sure the media would just love to see "us crazy cleveland fans" out there with our "lebron sucks" banners, burning "23" jerseys and chanting "king no mo", but what would be even better is if nobody even bothered to show up at all. that would be the ultimate biggest slap in the face to "the selfish one" if you ask me.

yeah, that's it, a boycott!!! spread the word to "just say no" to lebron.

of course there will still be all those parents who are looking for a free handout who will still go, but like forest gump said "stupid is as stupid does".

Of course he's going to show up. He stated during the Decision that Akron will always be his home and the people closest to him will continue to support him. He's free to work out at St V. I've seen people from Akron on the news saying that they support him and understand why he left. The kids who benefit from this will only see LeBron James, basketball superstar, not LeBron James, quitter, idiot, traitor. If he was to cancel the event or not show up to it, he'd take an even bigger hit from the media. His team will use this to show how he still supports NEO and is above the controversy of the Decision. They'll also use any footage of Cavs fans booing him, firing up jerseys, etc to show the nation that Cleveland fans are bitter and won't let go, while he has moved on.

Why wouldn't he show up? As Larvell pointed out, AKRON is his hometown. Cleveland isn't. I still think some of MeBron's bandwagoneers honestly truly believe that Cleveland was the guy's birthplace and where he was raised. It's a charity event and I actually think there will be some people there to make it a lovefest for him, YMMV.
"It's all about winning for me, and I think the Cavs are committed to doing that," he said. "But at the same time I've given myself options to this point, and like I said before, me and my team, we have a game plan that we're going to execute, and we'll see what we get."

Get used to. The longer we get seperation from "The Decision", the more Heat/James gear you'll see, especially in the 330. Guaranteed that adults and kids will be peppered throughout the Bike a thon route wearing their #6 jerseys and screaming that Bron Bron is STILL the home town hero no matter where he plays ball.

People were wearing Bulls gear after Mike hit his shot against Ehlo. Yankees hats became must wear apparel (thanks Fred Durst :thumbdown: ) Steelers jerseys and t-shirts have been in NEO as long as I can remember. It's just more prevalent now because there is no home team anymore because you can call your cable company and follow any team you want. It's not like growing up and following your team through Bob Dolgan and Hal or getting updates for 2 minutes from Gib or Wayland Boot.

True. The "Cleveland fan reaction" angle to the story is already written. The stations just need to come and get fresh footage. Why play in to that?

I hope people are still just venting and aren't really planning on doing anything for this.

It's one of the largest charity drives in Akron and helps just about every major charity in the city.

Blowing this up just to vent because he's a millionaire asshole just hurts Akron and helps him improve his image.

Feel free to burn his jerseys, rock his limo at Hopkins, or steal a cross from Jesus while he's taking a piss at the HoF ceremony.

Well, where should our anger be directed though?

You got LeBron, who just threw away any chance at being the face of the league and being a savior to his hometown area within minutes. (himself, I bet caring more about the former than the latter)

You got the other two who coordinated with said moron to pull off this stunt

You got Pat Riley and World Wide Wes (who really is a CANCER to sports, see how quickly his other failed project, AI, took a pretty bad tumble) who makes Richard Nixon seem like George Washington in terms of playing dirty

and then most of all, Stern turned a blind eye to all of this, and has presided over policies that allowed this to happen.

And what do we possibly aim to accomplish with such a thing? We got LeBron looking terrible, which was pretty much self-inflicted, but is it possible to have some real change going forward, meaning preventing the association to turn further into Rollerball?

Someone brought up a great point on 1350 AM yesterday. They think that James and the bike a thon will fly under the radar because on that same day you'll have:

The Pro Football HOF parade in Canton
The World Championships at Firestone w/ Tiger on the course.

Most media will be at those 2 events, especially with Tiger in town. Looks like LRMR actually looked at a calendar of events in the area and planned accordingly.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

Maybe you're broke - I can see it.

But here's an article about it:

I would like to see a large number of people wearing Akron t-shirts carrying anti-LeBastard signs along the bike route.

BFWWN was angry and wanted their team back. That anger was focused into that goal. The faxing campaigns, car tippings, and cross stealings were displays of that anger in the hope that it would get a result.

There's no 'result' we want here other than to whine. 'Wahhh. Lebron left us and dumped us on national TV. He's a jerk! Waaahhhh'. David Stern isn't going to reward our angst by forcing New Orleans to trade Paul to us or to force Melo to come to Cleveland in the offseason. He's not going to rescind Lebron's contract with Miami because he was colluding with other players. NOTHING is going to happen.

What made BFWWN exceptionally worthwhile was that there was a feeling that we -could- get the Browns back. That the NFL would listen to us. That by putting our passion and devotion for football on display we'd remind the NFL that NE Ohio is the heart of football and the one place where pro football should always be played.

Right now the majority of the US agrees with us that Lebron is a dick and that what he did should permanently damage his rep. Hell he was barely beaten out by A-Rod on a poll yesterday in the biggest ahole in sports right now and that's probably just because Rod hit his 600th taint this week. Making a spectacle at a charity event where Lebron is giving 400 bikes to kids isn't going to look good for us.

All it's going to do is make Lebron look like a more sympathetic figure. If people want to vent there's better ways to go about it.

He's FROM Akron, and IIRC Bath is a township and has an Akron address.

Sounds like it went off without a hitch, nothing but Bron lovers there. Either there was tight security, or all the Bron haters figured out he WANTS the pub, good and bad. And it's been a month. He's no longer worth the sweat on our balls to stand there and act stupid.

I think the networks were hoping for something to show. Fuckem.

Mainly because everyone was either at the Browns Scrimmage, the Tribe game, Mid-ohio, or in Canton for the Hall of Fame festivities.

pretty busy week in ohio sports this weekend.

True. And the most telling aspect of the whole thing:

LeBron was about the 5th most important sports story in the Akron area that weekend.
It's only progress if you eventually get somewhere.

Correct. It's Bath Township and while it's not technically associated with Akron the way some burbs are (ie. Fairlawn/Copley) people who live there or grew up there usually tell people they're from Akron. Before Bron the only reason anyone would have heard of Bath is from our favorite Revere alumni, Jeffrey Dahmer.

Well it was all over the Sunday ABJ and did get on ESPN but not having a reaction was the best way for us to avoid any negative press towards Cavs fans and minimal positive press for Bronbron.

My wife was there volunteering and said security was nuts. Cops biked next to Lebron, they patted people down plenty, Lebron had a lot of extra personal security, and of course they cut the bike ride short by limiting it to the kids getting new bikes rather than having an extended bike ride for the general public.

Lebron did vow his continued support for Akron charities, which frankly is a good thing, and he even bothered to mention Cleveland a couple times in his speech so MAYBE he's starting to realize he shouldn't be such a cunt to the Cleveland Cavs fans that supported him for years.
