      Let me know man.. I do agree that one big club would be awesome.. but almost all of my members would never join a club he is running and im sure MD members feel the same about me. Thats why i would agree to one big club if we both step down

Thus the reason I feel like we need to have one or no groups but i doubt that will ever happen seeing as how some people care more about they're egos then the scene and everyone in it.
      Mikey I totally agree. It's usually the same 2 or 3 guys from MD that treat people like crap, NOT the whole crew. I don't know if I know you personally or have met you personally, but I do get along with most MD members. I even get alon with Baker OUTSIDE of metro dubs, I just strongly disagree with how he acts as the leader of MD. I think a unified group would be fine but not under Baker. There would have to be some huge changes in leadership to keep things unbiased between BOTH crews if we ever hope to unify things.

      *edit: I believe this because many md people disagree with chad and many union people disagree with baker - there won't be unification if the leadership doesn't change hands.

      Sweet. Love those dogs. So like I said, I'll moving out of CO soon, but I think you guys should def just make one big Colorado group and maybe have a commity run it instead of one individual person? Idk just a thought..

      Couldn't have said it better myself! I feel like multiple people running it would be a great idea as well!

As soon as e actually turned his system ON they shunned him and moved to another area of the show!!! now he doesn't have a very good opinion of metro dubs just because of those people. at any of our get togethers we have never treated any metro dubs guys badly. we've never shunned anyone we've only tried to welcome them into our meet and into anything that we're trying to organize - in the meantime you guys make it seem like we are the devil and like it's all our fault. I don't understand how come your members cannot be nice to everyone and then turn around and say " all we want is everybody to be unified".
      Heather what speaker show was this? I was at one in Aurora a few weeks ago. Was it that show? I dont recall being rude to anyone other than the asshat that opened his door up into my car. i moved my car becuase i dont like people that dont respect other peoples property. Besides that guy was in a gmc jimmy and was true getto trash. Other than that i was just busy with doing the whole show thing.

      Thats not the only time it has happened.. I watched a guy at a MD meet besically in tears because he had a "farter" on his car.. Another time on the forums a guy quit because people were so hard on him about his smoked tails.. People take pride in their cars and it may not be the way you would do something but to a car person ragging on somesones "farter" or "smoked tails" thats probably worse than calling their mom fat.. I have just noticed it happens alot at those meets

      I'm not sure which one it was, but I'll ask rob. He said there WAS some MD guys that were cool with him and perfectly nice - there was mostly one that was a "dick" as he put it.

      Chad you should know that people are going to have there own opinion on things and thats just the way it is. I think this is why there will aways be other clubs. There is always going to be clicks that form up.

      Speaking for my self i just dont see one big club working. Even if it starts up it just will not last.

      Sorry to hear about that. i hope it wasnt me. I dont recall being a dick, unless it was around that time my car got hit by the getto trash guy and his jimmy.

      I cant speak as a whole for everyone but i would like to say sorry about that.

      Chad and/or Mike,

      I am willing to open up my place on a Saturday night or maybe even a Sunday night. My warehouse is at roughly Sante Fe between Belleview and Oxford. I had a BBQ there once before (some may remember). It is tucked away from the main streets as well. There is enough parking for 15-25 cars.

      Let me know if this will work out for a weekly basis or maybe a every other week type of location. I am not into the club crap and have stayed out for the most part. If this is a agreeable meeting spot, I want to stay neutral and out of the drama.

      Let me know,
      Russ

      False.

      I can honestly say that Union members are actually nice. They may express their opinion, but it's simply that. They do NOT pick on someone to the point of tears. We have NO dicks in our crew because as soon as someone acts like that Chad does an excellent job of removing them. He really does stick up for people and doesn't let anyone bully.

      Example:
      Two weeks ago a Union member expressed his dislike of my halo headlights. He gave his opinion and that was that - we all laughed at some jokes made and continued eating our Chipotle. No harm done. There is a HUGE difference between having varying opinions and trying to SHOVE your opinion down someone's throat and makin them feel bad for how THEY like their OWN car to be.

      I'm sorry to hear that you are not willing to squash the drama once and for all by unifying the groups.. Would you be willing to atleast do a group events? You can cross post your events on my site and I will do the same on yours?

      I would like to make a statement here.. if i may.. What happened at the Ed Carroll car show? I remember VWUnion members screaming out MD is gay.. at a family event. We also had a member getting gas with his kids in his car.. was approached by 2 VWUnion members.. "don't be a bitch"

      Now.. MetroDubs events and GTG's have been huge and a great success. I am not sure why MD is getting back to basics.. having drama free fun, safe for everyone.

      I hope this proves once and for all who is keeping the scene separated.. The offer stands baker resigns I resign and we create one group with no leader, a great example would be how clubs like dub cartel are ran everyone plays an equal part in club decisions

      Wow idk what to say. How about we stop holding onto the past and MOVE ON WITH OUR LIVES!?!?!? Russ I'm down, that sounds like an awesome idea. I like the idea of cooperation and non affiliation.
