Tool Of The Week
Tool of the Year Nominees Tags: Tool of the week Tool of the Year

Hey Gabbers...I've been mulling over some of the special individuals I think would be worthy of the 2012 YGS Tool of the Year. This has been a year that seems to have outdone others by a long shot. I've come up with so many different candidates I could award this to many of them and it wouldn't garner any controversy, but as you know we can have only one winner. With that said, I'm asking you all to give me the names of your leader in the race, the one guy, gal, team or organization that you think stands out from all the others.†

Post them below and I'll have the announcement on Sunday! See you then!†

Tool of the Week - Jordan Liflander, Fraudulent Firefighter Tags: Jordan Liflander Tool of the week

It really makes my skin crawl when I come across stories like this one Beeze pointed out to me. I come from a family of firefighters and have friends who are in various departments, all in the greater Boston area, my grandfather Joseph P. Sullivan was a Captain on the Malden Fire Department. While my dad was still in elementary school he and my ten aunts and uncles (yeah, lot of warm winters in the Sullivan household) lived in a double-decker just around the corner from the fire house. Whenever my grandfather went out on a call that was a large fire my grandmother and some of the other wives would throw together meals and bring them to the scene. Iíve heard lots of great stories about my grandfather, a tough ole Irishman who came to America newly married with one daughter and another on the way and found a living as most Irishmen did, in the Fire Department. He could drink you under the table and then carry you out on his shoulder afterwards.

We all have a special place in our hearts for firefighters especially since 9/11. On that day as I saw the first of the two towers come down I said to my wife, a lot of firefighters just got killed going up those stairwells. I donít even think the news media caught that part nearly as quick as I did, but Iím sure anyone from a firefighter family knew it that very moment, and it was chilling to the bone to think about. It takes a special kind of person to walk into a burning building never knowing whatís waiting for them once inside.

Which brings me to our Tool of the Week, Jordan Liflander, he has none of the above mentioned courage, what he has for a resume is all lies and he was doing just fine going around telling anyone who would listen of his 9/11 heroics as a first responder and captain of Ladder 133 which lost 12 firefighters, until some actual NY firefighters heard that he had given a speech in Spartanburg, S.C. on 9/11 of 2011. He was asked to speak in front of a crowd at a football stadium by a group he was a member of, all former military, police and firefighters who did a mediocre background check on this jerk when he first became a paid volunteer in S. C., at that time it appears they only verified he was a firefighter but not his rank and certainly not if he had been involved in any way as a first responder, who claimed to have attended 42 funerals for the real fallen heroes of 9/11.

Liflander claims he just got caught up in the lie and wanted to stop, but from video Iíve seen and stories on the net Iíve read including interviews of friends, one who recommended him to speak at the memorial were blown away by these developments and none of them ever said he had came to any of them looking to ďclear the airĒ, and I think itís a safe bet heíd be pawing himself off as that same hero of 9/11 to this day if it wasnít for actual NY firefighters calling the press and exposing this fucking fraud for what he is. Thereís a special place in hell for guys like this and his spot is warm and waiting for him.

After reading this story it reminded me of the guys who go around telling everyone that theyíre Navy Seals, in that story an actual SEAL who runs a website that researches upon request those who claim to be former or current Seal operatives. I forget the actual number of SEALS he claimed there were that were either active or retired but it wasnít Ďa large number, weíll say 5,000 but he claims heís met all 250,000 former SEALS, meaning thereís more frauds than actual Navy SEALS. Since I couldnít find a video of a fake firefighter, I remembered this one I was sent a while ago and dug it up, this is pretty funny shit so just pretend heís Jordan Liflander instead of a SEAL team 6 member, theyíre both TOOLS!

Okay Gabber's,it's††time to nominate†your candidate for TOTW!!!

Who†you got in mind?

You know what to do!

Tool Of The Week: F5 THIS!!! Tags: Tool of the Week Sporting News Kiss my ass backell Kelly Scaletta

LET ME PREFACE THIS RANT BY SAYING ITíS GOING TO BE LACED WITH PROFANITY, IF THAT OFFENDS YOU I DONíT GIVE A SHIT, GO FUCK YOURSELF!!!

As some of you have seen we had a little visitor while trying to celebrate the life of our friend 3rd stone, most of you probably missed it though because just like at TSN he waited a few days for the blog to get stale and then came in and put in his two cents that way only the publisher, in this case Beeze, and those who commented would see it, and thatís only if you had checked the alert box. Iíve seen this punk mother fucker do it before, many times. Busch league crap like this has been a trademark of his for a long time. HE HAS NO BALLS!!! Who is it I'm talking about?†BACKELL, or BACKASS as I like to call him, who else?

For those of you wondering what the title means, itís referring to an incident when the preacher had crashed the server at Sporting News. On that night, I was doing a mock draft with NWolf and we were talking on the phone and he asked me if I lost the connection to TSN and I had, the whole site was down and stayed that way for a long while because it was well after midnight on the east coast, I want to say it was early in the a.m. on a Monday and more than likely only a skeleton staff was behind the scenes. The next afternoon when I went to see if things where back up and running I started catching wind of what happened and who was to blame, then I saw this TOOL (backell) wrote a blog explaining he did it and it was a ruse. First off it wasnít a ruse as heíd claim, we knew he was inflating his page views for months by sitting there hitting F-5. He said, and this is my favorite part, it shows what kind of fucking liar he is, ďthat he taped down the Control and F buttons on his keyboard to keep refreshingĒ. Now when I read that, being a handy type guy I looked at my keyboard which was for a desktop computer and thought, †that isnít happening, and it sure as fuck isnít happening on a laptop either. Try it and get back to me, it wonít work. So itís pretty obvious our TOTW was sitting there late at night, as usual, adding to his page view count when he must have gotten just a little carried away seeing how he had just added about 5,000 hits to his daily tallyÖshocking for a preacher to be padding his numbers and trying make himself something heís not, donít you think?

Iíve had more than a few run-ins with this piece of shit. This honorable preacher ran blog contests, collected the votes and always won for best blogger that came with a huge trophy heíd paste on his profile and also on the header to his blog. He did this so those who might have come across his post for the first time would think they stumbled across some award winning journalistÖthatís a frickin hoot. A legend in his own mind is what he is.

Making an example of this fucking piece of shit isnít hard, not when you come into our house and shit on our rug, especially when weíre mourning the loss of a friend, the same friend he claimed he respected after being sure he told us all thatís the only reason he signed up. Heís not the only one that did this either, the other guy did it twice in the same day. Yeah, letsí roll out the red carpet for these guys, pat them on the back and make them welcome shall we? Thatís not going to happen. †If folks want to continue to act like douche bags thatís fine, in fact there are those out there that I never expect to change and weíve managed to go about our dayís just fine without them. We donít give a fuck about whatís ďpolitically correctĒ (and if I find out who it is that coined that pussy phrase theyíll be made an example of too), thatís just an easy way of saying Iím afraid to say how I really feel, well if thatís how you are we really donít want you here, thereís plenty of places on the net you can go where theyíll open their doors give you a big hug, tell you everything you say is right and follow that with a pat on your back after they give you an internet hug and kiss. You can fucking have it. If shallow approval is what you need to get through the day youíve got more problems that you can ever imagine.

What really has been bugging me about this, and it runs deeper than just a couple of comments on our tribute to 3rd stone, itís that it was probably more directed at me specifically than anyone else, and Iím a big boy I can handle myself just fine, what pisses me off is I havenít joined any of these other places, I donít go there and comment, I donít have them bookmarked, I donít care what they do. They donít seem to want to offer any olive branches, and quite frankly I donít feel like I would need to apologize to any one of them, and hereís the reason, most of these people I havenít had a run-in with, they donít like me for some reason and thatís fine, as I said, Iíve been going about my business without one thought either way about any of them, it seems theyíre the ones who felt a reminder was in order. If thatís what was intended then be a fucking man about it, donít post it on a blog 4-5 days after it was up so no one will see it, if youíve got something to say come to me and say it and by all means donít take it out on a whole group, message me directly, weíll go from there. And †if youíve got something youíd like to say to me in person, say where and when, Iíll be there, but donít pull this chicken shit, back door pussy crap, because thatís what it is, and in the end all you will have gotten for your trouble is a ďTool of the WeekĒ nod! Come again when you canít stay so long asshole!
