Very true.

BDG, you were probably one of the best admins I've ever seen on a forum. Worked hard, cared solely about the success of the forums and the members who posted on them. Never let the power get to your head, always welcomed anyone who was new to CL. Hell, you're the one who recruited me from Knicks Online forums to ClubLakers, never did I think the most posts I have on any forum would be on a Lakers forum.

Stay safe, stay in touch, and THANK YOU :bow:

And JSM, the best pick you can make. Congrats JSM :bow:

Thanks for all the time you dedicated to keeping CL running smoothly, we'll all miss you and don't forget to stop by so you can keep in touch. Good luck with whatever you are moving on to pursue and I'm sure you'll achieve the same success you had managing this sometimes crazy website.

I also want to share what the others have said. Great work BDG, thanks for all your help and time given to me to assist me in the things I need. You've been a huge part of CL for these 5 years, and like you said, it will only continue to grow - we are all appreciative of your work and care to make this place the best Lakers fan site ever.

GL with everything, and I hope to talk to you from time to time.

Also, just wanna add that JSM is a very ideal choice for the job, both of you have done a great deal of work for this site.

I wish I would have known you more. Sorry we never had any discussions and I haven't seen you on here for quite some time. It is unfortunate that you will be stepping down, but I'm looking forward for JSM to keep the tradition going well like you have. So farewell for now...

Ok, so I'm not going to cry. No, for real, I'm not doing it! Well, let's just say not "much".

BDG, you know I've got special luv for you and the others who've made CL what it is today. You should be proud of what you've accomplished. I know I'm proud for you and the rest of the guys. I know times change, but I sincerely wish all the "old heads" were still around (myself included). But I do understand that life sometimes calls for more of our attention to the things that require and promote our survival.

I wish you well, my friend. And I thank you for all that you've done here.

Damn, why am I seriously tearing up?

Man, I'm still devastated.

great admin, great guy, great basketball knowledge...I really can't say how much I appreciate BDG

and with you and L4L we have to major players that lack the time to be active here.

I have no doubt that J will get it done, but its still a major blow for this community. We are losing 2 from the creme of the crop. And while I don't intend to ever retire from CL, probably my time will be limited as well in the future as I have said in the past. I feel like the last few weeks, I haven't done enaugh to justify "moderating".

so we have so many great guys (DA, Vash, L4L, BDG, pbhatta,...) that simply don't have the time to visit CL on a regular basis...unfortunetly it seems like I might be the next one...my time is beyond limited right now. Only way I visit CL right now is to wake up an hour earlier and sleep an hour later...I don't know how long I can keep it up. Sure I won't retire but maybe free up my spot in the staff for guys with more time, knowledge and better attitude than me. I will do everything possible to keep this chapter of my life open as long as I can.

I didn't intend to hijack this thread by any means...it should be all about BDG and his contributions for US and this community...

but with great members (friends) leaving...it gets tougher to keep the fire.

We should all support JSM as much as we can...he is good, he is very good and he is great. But he is not super human. He can't do what he has done AND do everything BDG was doing...

Thank you for all the hard work on this website. I'm sorry you're stepping down, but I do understand why it had to happen. J is going to do a good job, I'm sure.
