I got a good laugh out of the line "I’m not interested in getting into a pissing match with someone who clearly does not live up to their own screen name." coming from a person on their nth user account and 3rd supposed nationality, so the thread hasn't been a total loss for me.


Speaking of which, why is having multiple accounts here allowed? Why Whitemateluvsmartinis feels the need to keep getting reincarnated doesn't matter to me, I just find it interesting because this is generally frowned upon in most online communities.

One for each of it's personalities perhaps?

Nope, haven't heard anything like this. Chinese season didn't start until November so that's months of rehab available.

The interesting part to me is that she was upset about moving to a team where she was most likely getting a limited bench role and then when she is able to sign with any team she wants, she choose to sign with a team she isn’t going to start for or get large amounts of minutes...

So I think I’ll pass on this.

Never been to Uncasville, have you? It is a casino complex in the middle of nowhere. Not saying yes or no to the rumor but it is definitely not a place some people would like being traded to.

I’m not saying she wasn’t unhappy being in Uncasville. I’m saying I don’t buy the fake an injury/new role being the problem.

Short answer: I don't know. This place has never really been big on formal rules.
If someone gets banned then it does seem silly to allow them back under another name though.

I dunno. I believe in second chances. I assume it takes a lot to get banned? Like personal attacks? So maybe he/she learned enough from the first time around. And we pretty much all post questions/rumors at some time or the other and all have favorites and least favorites. We're just fans. And some other posters annoy us. It's just part of the repartee. So I don't see what the big deal is... or as someone on here once said, 'don't get your panties in a twist'.

But now I'm intrigued. Maybe I'll sign up with another name and get really nasty and annoy everyone! Wink

In this case, the poster was using two identities at the same time and posting within minutes in the same thread. And seeing as this entire thread was started by a third identity that people are complaining acts the same as the last two, I'd say the behavior has not changed.

I'm not going to take sides on whether the rumor was appropriate to post or not, just giving context on this part of the thread.

I would do the same, but I annoy people enough with this account.

The FFO account was gold (IMO anyway), so on that basis alone I don't think alternate accounts are necessarily bad. I'd obviously rather they were used for good (eg. humour or insider info) than evil though.

I'm curious where the original poster (Ay Mate) heard this rumor? Was it through Alan Barcoff of WNBA Fan's Page on Facebook?

If so, I would be dubious with the source, since he has gotten more than a few bum tips over the years, despite that he claims that so many WNBA players are his "good friend". Rolling Eyes

It was from a friend of mine who works as an usher at Mohegan Sun arena. He told me about it when I was visiting family up there. That’s why I wondered if it might have been true since she works there.

My usher friend said she heard it from some team employees. So no, the usher is NOT the source, she just passed it along to me.

And instead of going to Amber Cox, you bring it out in public? Well, ok. Tell your usher friend that this has been verified false. And, that she might want to report those team employees as troublemakers.

Got it. An usher heard from a team employee. A team employee who told the usher, that was willing to betray a trust and risk their job to tell an usher team business, that Kizer faked it and cost herself probably $40,000 this season by sitting out.

I understand much clearer now. Thanks.

Got it.

Not to mention that the team employee told the usher that she was able to play overseas with no issue. Except the Chinese season started in November and how would a Mohegan Sun usher still be interacting with Sun employees so long after the season? It is not at all unreasonable for a back injury to be still healing in September but healed enough a month later.

Maybe these “team employees” are just paranoid because of the trend of Connecticut players like Charles, Lawson, Bone, wanting to sit out playing or act in a way so they’d get traded to another team because they weren’t happy there. It’s easy to assume if a player doesn’t seem like they should be hurt that maybe they aren’t really hurt. But why fake an injury? Just be like Bone and Charles and say you’re not happy there. Kizer is obviously good enough to get traded to another team.

I dunno... it seems like this topic is mostly sour grapes about a player leaving the club, and since nothing can be documented, it’s most likely all just made up. Got some stories on Morello?

I'm not getting involved with this thread in terms of content,

but I will say this, I work at a Broadway Theater and the Ushers know all the behind the scenes tea.

Mark it down, I agree with Shades.

The big thing to me is still the fact she lost a large amount of money in free agency by being hurt, even with her play in Europe.
