Here is my two cents..............

I think Bob should have promoted within!
With that being said Bob is the owner and makes all the calls.
I and none of you do!
Also, the new guy is in his family. I have seen this too many times and do not like it but understand it. If I owned a business and needed someone trustworthy to help run things, I would probaly ask a relative to help. It may not be ethically right but its life.

However, lets give the new guy the benefit of the doubt.......... for now.
This site is growing and Bob is only one guy.
Hopefully, he will give us more things to do and learn to delegate responsibilities.
Although there are several members on the TCC crew, we need to be given more/something to do.

Peace
Jeremy

BTW Bob, if you feel this is wrong just edit it blank. Sorry, if I out stepped my boundaries.

I'm not sure where the ethical issue exists, but your opinion is as welcome as any other.

Let's hope that Jethro's management style is a good fit for all involved.

I'm not one to edit someone's posts just because the content might make me feel uncomfortable. You have the right to voice an opinion and have done so. It was done in a civil manner, so it stands as written.

As a reminder...

In order to guarantee that this new approach succeeds, Jethro and I felt that it was important for our members to get to know him better and to have the opportunity to interact with him directly. Therefore, there will be a special Trading Card Central LIVE event this evening. Here is information for that event:

Host: Jethro
Date: 4/1/08
Time: 10:45 PM EST
Location: Trading Card Central LIVE

I will make a brief introduction this evening and then will simply turn the event over to Jethro. That way, all of you will have lots of time to get to know Jethro - including his interests and qualifications - and ask any and all questions that you might have about this change and the related transition.

We'll see you tonight!

-Bob

I am all for Bob devoting more time to family, but maybe not the Weight Loss contest biggrin.gif I want to win BTW.

I will wait and see how things go tonight...I will be open minded to the whole transition.

Look for my box break after Bob & Jethro are done. smile.gif

That's how I feel. I have my doubts like posted above, but gotta give Bob and Jethro a chance.

I'll try to be there; I sent Jethro a welcome message earlier. I won't be there for any box breakage though - that will be way past bedtime. laugh.gif

I'm just afraid Jethro will find a way to abuse TCC and use it as a money-making scheme rather than a site devoted to hobbyists.

I'll be sure to address this with Jethro tonight. He better have his dancing shoes on.

Thanks, Cody and Robert. wink.gif

Time to start my commute as well as find out how close Jethro is to Ohio at this point. I'm hoping we have some time to eat dinner and discuss a few things before tonight's event.

Nepotism I tell ya.. nepotism!!

Ive worked my whole life for family owned and operated companies.. Im used to siblings etc being involved..but in all cases they worked their way up from the ground floor to earn their stripes..

Here's a guy with zero posts coming to lead us to the promised land.

There should have been clear lines of succession created , as with all family enterprises.. This simply sounds like a case of burnout!

Now my love and genuine respect for Bob is unflappable and I can fully understand the need for time away...

BUT My faith in the Teams abilities set forth here is 110% in accomplishing Bob's mission to be the greatest family oriented trading card forum on all the internet!

Instead we gotta bring in some "clampett" who's claim to fame may be hand weaving coonskin caps and playing a two string banjo on his deck with a 1969 Chevy Impala up on blocks in front of his mobil home.

Sorry for the scathing criticism.I had a rough commute home!

Without the colorful similes... I wholeheartedly agree.

Look guys, it's not that anyone feels "cheated" out of the chance to run or help run TCC, but the fact is we know absolutely nothing about this Jethro guy. We all trust Bob's judgment, but there comes a time when even the most sane leaders act questionably.

Jethro won't get a warm welcome from me, regardless of what he says or promises to do. This is the worst idea in the long history of bad ideas.

Man, believe me. The whole thing already ran through my head and I've questioned Bob about it up and down. This is for real, and it's a really, really bad thing.

What if this guy ends up like Mark Cuban and just wants to make money off us and Bob? Maybe he can take advantage of Bob's inability to spend as much time with the site as he'd like? Maybe he'll get rid of members for not agreeing with his entrance?

I've got a feeling tonight will be a rough case of lip service. Jethro might be a suave guy, so be aware of any false or empty promises he makes.

I have an account, but my computer won't load the chat screen. It will do it at home, just not here at WKU. It must be some kind of network restriction.

if he's a liberal bring him in about time we could use some of those ..

seriously, i don't really have a problem but then again i dont' know exactly what this job entitles (i wont be up for ustream tonight) could you give me a briefing of what his titles include.

IMO, he would be completely fine with me if he doesnt interfere anything outside of his duites

Are we all done with making snap judgements about someone we've never even met before? Don't be mistaken. Bob is not handing complete control of TCC over to someone else.

That's what I don't understand. I know you've been more time than me here and you love this site, but it's not that Bob sold the site to a total stranger and leaves TCC forever. He will continue to come here and, in case something happens, he'll be back.
