  1. John I don’t know u but from what I get so far from this website is a lot of Vainieri bashing, it’s getting tiring, Anthony is a guy who has proven to us already what kind of freeholder he has been!!!! The same old drunk comments are getting tiring, so please people or whoever is writing need to stop and get a life!!! And John u seem to approve the comments hating on Anthony for some reason that’s not fair!!!! Is it because you don’t like him or is someone putting u up to it

    • I know the comments are stupid, but they aren’t hurting anyone. It’s just mindless banter that you get on message boards where people can use fake names. To me, it’s the same as saying someone “sucks” or is a “moron,” just generic stuff anyone can say about anyone. Nothing to get excited about.

  2. Also john I believe u saw Anthony today and even spoke to him what’s ur opinion I’m sure he wasn’t drunk so that comment should of never been on here

  3. John you just stated u did see him, yet he wasn’t one of the dignitaries mentioned,that just shows you don’t like him!! You also said he wasn’t drunk therefore u should of never let that comment up there, it’s like u like to see people bashing him

    • Nah, I have no problem with Anthony, or really anyone else for that matter, and he knows that. The only thing I’m going to agree with you on is I owe him a shoutout next time, everybody gets made fun of on here, including me, it’s not a big deal.
