    To me what we are about is family, we are about fairness, justice, truth, equality, friendship, freedom, Fishing and above all Love for our fellow Man. We on the BOC need to remember that we are apart of something that is bigger than ourselfs we should remember that we are here to help each other. Sometimes that help comes from a strong PM that might offend. Sometimes it comes from one of the Mods. deleting our post that in our mind was great. And sometimes it comes from posting a prayer request for a loved one.

    We are a family we are friends and we are brothers. Lets try and remember who we are we are the BOC the BOC is not a thing it is all of us. Lets act like it and remember all the people that have been helped. Hands reaching out to help a brother in need. Hands reaching out to pick up someone thats down.

    We are the caretakers of a sport that we love we are the people that take a kid fishing for the first time we are the ones that take others out on our boats. We are the guys and gals that would rather see our buddie's son or daughter catch a huge trophy catfish before ourselfs. We are the guys that are kin to people we have never met.

    Ive read the stories of the Brothers driving many miles to help anouther and not asked for anything in return. Ive seen and been the recipiant of the kindness of other brothers. Ive learned from the best that the sport has to offer and became a better man for it. Ive seen people give money and time to others when they didnt have it to give. We come from all walks of life and from all backgrounds we are world wide but yet we are right next door.

    We have names like DRC, Whister, Bearcat, Screen, Dreadnaught, Cyclopes, Dano, Fwmud, Dreamcatcher, timmotha7, Bobpaul, MarkJ, Catbird and many more. We are young and we are old. We are alive and some of us have passed. We are poets we are writers, we are Military and Docs and welders and machanics but yet we are all the same. We are 12000 strong yet we are weak. We are all BOC we are the BrotherHood we are amoung the best and we are the best.

    CHuck, I'd raise your rep on this post, if it would let me. Seems I gave too many to you in the recent time span. All deserved.

    awesome post bro i would like to apologize to a lot of people on this site because here lately i have ACTUALLY been letting all the things in the high intensity area get to me and as a downside i havent been paying much attention to the real reason i started being a member of this site in the first place! FISHING! i like to shoot the breeze with everybody and i might not agree with everything they say but it helps to talk about things instead of holding the bad stuff in and letting it build up until it is too late to apologize for the nasty letters and overall lack of respect for the brothers and sisters of this site. :crying: i truly want to thank the mods and paul for giving us this site and i am in a way ashamed at some things i have done on here in the last few weeks. i just want you all to know i respect you and will not be spending my time in the intensity area unless it is visiting only(i hafta read the 5 word game thread after all lmao) stay cool brothers and sisters and ill talk to you soon i hope.

    your favorite? clown

    That was by far the best analogy of this site I have ever read on here. This one should go into some kind of special place for all to read and easily accessable to everyone that needs to be reassured about what we stand for on here!!!
    GREAT POST, BROTHER !!!
