Default Cross Trainer appreciation thread

I for one will soarely miss Cross Trainer. He is an exceptional poster that has contributed a great deal to the board in the way of history, training, philosophy and many other elements. I'll never forget his debate a few months ago with Amsterdam. That was one of the best debates I have yet seen on this forum.

I wish him the best of luck.

Yes, cross trainer is indeed the man. The classic forum will feel a little empty sometimes now.

It's not just that he is so knowledgable, but he always treated everybody with respect, and also has a great sense of humour. The place won't be the same without him.

He's been sentanced to a year for tax evasion.

It's the best they could get him for he's so ahead of the game.

Boo! Boooo!

He ducked me many times, drawing (and inventing) the avatar-line which meant that i wasn't getting a response unless i wore a John L. avatar. He also kept and retained the "ESB Classic poster award" by being good 'friends' with the sanctioning poster.

Wow, cross is leaving?? That is surely the forum's loss - he was one of the best posters on the forum, imo. I wish him luck in whatever he is choosing to devote his time to!

he said he was writing a book on the history of mma, if that's it then I can't wait till he publishes, if it's anything like his posts it'll be a must have.

cross_trainer be sadly missed and the Classic Forum won't quite be the same without his depth of knowledge and valuable contributions.


All the best mate in whatever you're doing, take care and perhaps you'll pop in to visit us all some time down the line.
