10/23/2020I CHEATED. I ADMIT IT.DandyChiggins20
Guys I am really sorry for cheating. At the time I didn’t know that it was cheating and I am truly sorry. I am very sorry for all of the disrespect I showed to veterans and more importantly, the web master. I know I will probably never be able to gain anybody’s trust back on this site because I denied what I did. It was a huge mistake on my part, and while I assume that I will never gain anyone’s trust back, I really hope I can. I am going to stay quiet on This site and just try and build the best teams possible. I love this game and I think it is really fun. I showed disrespect and I can’t take it back. But I can move forward and not make a mistake like that again. (But I will make crap trades because I just do)
