At the request of the host, I hate to inform everyone that at this time the Blowout Group Break of 07 Bowman Sterling Football has been post-poned.

If I find out any additional information on the break I'll report back.

No running list of slots, auction for toppers, who gets base cards.

Not a very organized break, yet.

I think people are sitting back until it develops.

Looks like this break has crashed. I wouldn't blame Karl if he didn't want to do another break with that 25reggiebush guy being a jerk.

I'm guessing the members that said they would take part in the break don't have to worry about paying for their slots?

I think the interest is there if someone wants to try this again. I think everything needs to be posted in the thread though. Might have kept people away. This is a fun product to break so I hope someone wants to step up and host one.

I'd like to see someone do another bowman sterling baseball break if/when the price of bowman sterling drops. It should fill quickly

Good question. I am not sure why he was banned, but I do see under his username that it says he is banned?

My only speculation is that we all have to make sure we don't go against the Blowout forum rules with breaks. The idea of "A Break" has gotten a little out of control lately.

Blowout rules are General Rules:
-All products for case Breaks must be purchased through Blowoutcards Inc.
-All participants of the break must be a member of the Blowoutcards Message Board

Im guessing this part is against the All particiipants part.

How or why would they ban Karl ? The guy was an on-line billboard for BO Cards. Every time I went on his site I saw BO Cards mentioned or posted. Head scratcher there

PLUS he actually brought something to the table and contributed to the board unlike all the hucksters lately just using the board for free card listings.

Well said Bam. I am still shocked. Seems to me this forum is going in the wrong direction. just look at all the stupid posts. New members begging people to do buy their cards and wanting to host breaks. Thats about all I see anymore.

yeah what a difference a few months have made. This use to be a great board where there were mature ppl and only a few new posts a day and you could read them all and not filter the ones that needed not to be read. I know the reasoning for the contest were to bring more viewers to the site(which is great my best pulls ever have been from Blowout which is why I buy from them) but it has brought an influnce of ppl who only want to come here and spam their Dang auctions for sell their S*it singles. If we are looking for singles or other things to buy we know what websites to find them on. This has been a great board to complete trades on sets with many sp's but lately it has just changed so much. Maybe it is kind of like that girlfriend you had that in the beginning she was great but over time you find the flaws. I hope things turn for the best here and we can weed out some of the dead weight. I'm sorry for the long rant but there are some really bight ppl on here and they are no longer posting because of the fools who are now appearing on this board.

I agree with the out of control part Vinny. There have definitely been a lot of not so standard group break ideas recently.

That may be the case, but I don't see where it says that you will be banned for doing so. Anyways, this board has definitely changed but the service I receive from blowout has remained excellent. I just wish that the forums that they provide for us to use were a tad more useful (like they used to be).

A lot of thrash has popped up on this MB lately. We just need to ignore the garbage and sooner or later they will go back to Beckett and try to sell their s*!t singles there.

I sure hope that Karl is allowed back on. He is a pleasure to do busines with, has had some great group breaks and more than anything he's honest. It seemed that he was quite excited about the sterling fb break because evryone would get something. Doesn't sound like he was doing anything malicious.

And Jug it seems like you were just getting back into it. This is all really a shame. I have to be very honest that I generally can't stand these boards anymore. They used to be informative boards. Now they are just breaks, sells and spams. Maybe Chris should limit the number of group breaks per month to 2-3 (even though it is a few less sales). And like Tony said, don't post the sales as new posts. Have them all in the For Sale folder. If people want to look to buy or sell they will figure it out on their own.
