I would like to say something to eveyone that has time to get on here and just make random posts about stuff that doesnt even affect them. I lived in Roan Mountain and when I talk to the guys that I work with I always have the coolest stories to tell. Yeah most of us should have probably went to We had fun. I mean one of my closest friends who I call my brother still lives there. If I had not joined the Air Force I probably would to, but here is what I have a beef with. Everyone of these post has something negative about someone or something in that town. If something is broke then fix it. Dont just get on here and run your mouth do something about it, and if you are not going to then shut up. I mean I just read a post about two of the guys on the football team making All-State and someone was bad mouthing them. I dont know how it is now since I have been gone for more than 10 years but when me and the guys made All-State it was a big deal. I dont care if you dont like the kid you could at least support them. Then all the other talk about other people just blasting them on here come on how juvenile is that. I am sure that someone out there is gonna blast what I am saying and probably have something to say about me but that is cool. You know why? I have moved on and I am not still in Roan Mtn. and it doesnt bother me. Look at this way if you can sit on the computer and complain about this girl and this teacher from the 90's and how the football teams sucks and how much better things would be just like I said on the football forum go to school get a degree and go make a difference. If you dont want to do that then stop giving the people that are doing that shit. To the football team all I can say is find some of the old guys and ask about old traditions about the old teams and how strong those teams were. Not just because of talent but the "brotherhood" that was formed on that football field. That is what made those teams even before I played so good. When you are on that field you own it make yours put all you have into it have fun. I thought it was cool when I played to have those guys that played before me to come and say man good job or maybe you should try this and stuff like that. If you do all you can do that is all you can do. For eveyone else just look back at what that town was. Everyone looking out for eveyone else and helping eveyone else. Be proud of the town not trying to find whatever you can wrong with it and then blast it on here. I mean shit this is the only way really I keep in touch with home. I am just tired of reading all the shit talking. Take care and God Bless.
thank you god

Donnie, you are right on, most of these people only live for one more pill, one more hit of crack, etc, etc. They have nothing, want nothing except the next high and that at anyones expense, and most of them would not work in a pie factory as company taster. That is unless it had some type of dope in it. Most are just a lazy bunch of parasites that will do anything for another hit, this includes sex with anyone that can furnish their next hit or steal from them that work, anything to support their habit. Ttriker, I would say that you are one of these people. Get a life, try to finds a job, try to make something of yourself. Stop being a deadbeat.

I didnt post this to get comments. I read most of this stuff when I was Deployed in Iraq and most recently in Africa. I was tired of reading all the crap that was being said about Roan Mtn. I mean on the football post someone was saying why do coaches use fowl language during the games and all that jazz. I put this post on here in the hopes that someone would read this that it might make a difference for someone. For those of you that just want to pick it a part and talk shit about then get a clue. You are the one that should be looking at what I said instead of just running your mouth. The world does not revolve around you. I was just hoping one of the younger kids would read it and hear it from someone that has lived that life and not afraid to tell them how it is. I mean I was not perfect I did some stupid things in my life but i moved on. I got my head straight and now I am doing something that I love to do. I have a good life and good roof over my head and a steady paycheck. But now this is to the older people that want to talk smack about eveything and eveyone. Grow up and stop acting like one of these out of control kids. Instead of waisting your time on here talking about them why dont you take some time out of your "busy" life and talk to some of these kids. Point them in the right direction. stop giving them shit and help them instead of hurting them.
thank you god

its not worse in a bigger town; "Striker". In a bigger town when someone posts someone elses name the entire place usually doesn't know who they are talking about. because there are more people. saying someones name in a big town is like saying "potato" to a bag of chips. There isn't any differentiating between them because their population doesn't thrive on knowing the life story of every single person in the city limits. maybe read a book if you are wanting character development?

Hey Donnie I hope all is well with you. I have always thought you are a great guy. Do you remember playing Batman with Scott at my little girls (not a little girl any more)birthday party!!! We still talk about Batman and Robin we had a blast that day even if it was like a hundred degrees then.
I know being over seas can be over whelming but you do realize that good people still live in Roan Mountain, we still take care of our family and each other. There are some that can do better but most of everyone are good caring people. Not everything that is on topix is true or even real, most of it is made up.
I pray that God watches over you and everyone of you guys come home safe and sound.

I know that there are good people in that town that is why it pisses me off to see people talking shit. i am only refering to those people. i refer to scott as my brother to eveyone i meet if it wasnt for him i might be one of the kids that i am talking about. my thoughts and words were for the kids more than anything. i hate to see young men and women blasted when thier lives have just begun. like i said earlier i have made mistakes in my life and i learned from them. i didnt mean to sound like i was blasting eveyone. just the ones that want to blast people but not take the time to help them out. ya know. and by the way who is this? i am sorry but i dont remember this. i am sure if you refresh my memory i will remember. i have a idea but not sure. PLEASE eveyone that reads this. dont think that i am bad mouthing roan mountain just the ones that dont want to help it remain a good place.

Give me your email address and I will tell you. I really don't want my name here because this is the first time I have ever wrote here.
I know you are not bad mouthing everyone in Roan Mountain but I didn't want you to think this is what Roan Mountain has become either. We all miss you and Scott does to, wish you would come for a visit.

Thanks mma fan! I have changed since high school. I am glad to see that you thought I was a punk.

Phillip P I have no idea what you are talking

Hey - I do remember who you are I just had to think for a little bit..haha. I hope all is well with you and your family. Hopefully if all goes well I will be back stateside in about three months. Then maybe we can all meet up and do something. I miss my other family. Take care and God bless.
