    Quoted from toyotaboy:

    Why is that?? Kinda a trolling Statement

    Quoted from pin2d:

    I was going by what Rob said in the interview. I talked to him last night and wrote this post late last night. I didn't contact Mike, Spooky, Stern, JJP, or any exhibitors about Rob's comments.

    Why wouldn't you contact Mike? Seems to me this was a one sided/ or not the whole story

    Quoted from pin2d:

    It was late last night when I finished transcribing and I was under the impression that nothing in the interview would surprise Mike (or any manufacturer for that matter), I thought what was shared in the interview was well known by industry people.
    I just got off the phone with Mike and will be posting his side of the story tomorrow.
    Hopefully things can be worked out between all parties and we can have an amazing (drama-free) pinball show in Chicago.

    Awesome news, can't wait to hear his side. Thanks

    Quoted from terrapinmark:

    But as we know. complex problems do not have simple solutions. aka lets pay a Starbucks employee 20 bucks an hour. Another simple solution "Monte" would be for Bob to step down as well. Bob is also the reason the current situation is falling apart.

    Bob, man killing me!! Hahahhaha

    Quoted from newmantjn:

    You should try interspersing your periods throughout your post at places like the end of sentences. It make much more sense than saving them all until the end and using them all up at once.

    He posts talk text. This is the rEason why his posts are like this. He never types, just talks.

    Quoted from Chippewa-Pin:

    I always looked forward to Expo each year even though it's a long drive.
    I'll be heading to the York/White Rose show in October instead. The 3 1/2 hour shorter trip will be nice!

    I'll be doing the same. Mike is a GREAT GUY!! Mike being banned from the show is complete bullshit., What Rob did to Mike was Slimy. Mike would have never taken the buyout if Rob didn't tell him something different. Unfortunately that was never on paper.
