Adopt-a-Bronco:
VP John Elway
Default Taking a long break from the Mane

Dear Orange Maners:

As many of you know, some more than others, I've gone through a devastating year in 2009 which includes many things I haven't shared with the board. The combination of traumatic life events, deep emotional loss and unneeded stress has stretched me to the breaking point. In the opinion of a licensed expert (not me, obviously) our recent conversations have led she and I to conclude I need a long, long rest from this site.

For these reasons, Iíve decided to take an indefinite leave of absence from the Orange Mane. Iíll still check in from time to time to read through PMs and even browse a thread or two but considering the present ďstate of the board,Ē itís not a positive environment for my recovery at this time. I want to thank everyone on this site with whom Iíve shared wonderful conversation and debate and am so appreciative of the friendships Iíve made with Kaylore, Oskie, Apa, SoCal and others that I hope to continue even during my absence from this site.

Thank you in advance for your support and I hope everyone enjoys this season of Broncos football.

Sincerely,
Montrose

with the number of f-ing moron chicken little retards on this site, i think all knowledgeable posters should probably find somewhere else to go. this place gets more and more ridiculous by the year, to the point that its almost annoying to even come here anymore.

Hopefully your the first to go. I doubt anyone will miss your crying and whining here.


Montrose, is the licensed therapist hot?

Anyway, hope your back soon dude.

Focusing on real life sounds like a good idea dude. Oh and don't be so damn hard on yourself. Just being alive and healthy is reason enough to be thankful. Save some time and energy for the Omane tailgate. Hope you can make it. You won't miss much by taking a break from this place.

You talk to your therapist about this site?

Awesome.

Good luck getting your mind right again.

Montrose's emotional breakdown is just one more thing we can blame on McD.

Dissenting opinions hurt your feelings much? Honestly, message boards probably aren't the place for you.

Sorry to hear that. But a break from this and a focus on living life outside the bounds of the net is a good thing. Just remember there are still friends around for you. Take care of yourself Montrose.

Take care for a bit montrose, real life is more important than the interwebz (ZOMG no way!), real life is even more important than football.

dissenting is one thing. baseless, retarded and completely illogical opinions while trying to actually offend people who SUPPORT the team instead of just focusing on the negative **** 100% are something different.

Message boards definitely aren't the place for you then.

Montrose,
You should know that when I first started on this board about a year ago now...wow how time flies when one is wasting it on the internet. When I asked Oskie about who was one of the best guys to read on here, he was very specific about you and a few others. From what I have read of your postings, he was absolutely right. Your input will be missed, but I know for me the 12 days away from internet I had, the Mane, etc was very good for me. Best of luck to you and hope to get to meet up with you someday when I get back from England, but of course if you were ever over here, more then welcome to say hello.
