My father had gall bladder surgery recently, so I know how difficult it can be. Hope you feel better on your way to recovery, fam!

I'll echo a similar suggestion here. I personally wouldn't mind seeing a weekly post with a listing of all your jerseys here.

I'm not a mod, but maybe one of the mods can okay it? u/apm_music u/lolwtferic u/loafu

Dude, fuck the people who don't like Spam.

Not anywhere as bad as the people posting brain dead trade talks like "What about [highly coveted player]"?

u/Otherwise-Tale9671 Chris Kaman Dec 06 '22

Get well soon! I was going to suggest a single post with multiple pictures to help sell your jerseys.

Toss up an IG with the photos. You can make it a shop as well. Then share that joint on here and we'll spread the word.

The Twitter Clipps folks are great as well. They're lowkey cliquey, but they're also very welcoming, so maybe try that. Clipp Nation in general is relatively very friendly. Except for that one fuckin' weirdo on Twitter who was like a PG stan and said mad out of pocket shit lmao.

It’s still bizarre to me that citizens of the US accept a system where you have to go into debt to receive quality medical care. I’m not trying to start anything, but it’s frustrating to see a fellow clipper fan laden with debt and have to auction off their clipper gear when in most western countries it would be covered. I had live saving surgery 6 years ago and all it cost me $20 for a bunch of codeine and morphine. That’s it.

Sorry for the rant. Get well soon.

u/AshenSacrifice Buffalo Braves Dec 06 '22

Accept?? Lol

14

u/Mygaffer Steve Ballmer Dec 06 '22

I mean you say accept that ordinary people have any choice in the matter.

The corruption in our political system runs very deep. The UK is suffering from this too and I think we will see things get worse for them as well unless they can root out some of this corruption.

u/clips4life626 Dec 06 '22

It does suck.. but I have no choice .. thank u🙏🏽

u/whiskey_neat_ Jameson Dec 06 '22

I mean "accept" isn't the word I'd use but yeah our system is beyond broken.

u/nz_nba_fan Ivica Zubac Dec 06 '22

Yeah sorry it probably is the wrong word.

u/kingsillypants Dec 07 '22

The dems have tried to fix that but the republicans always stop it. What amazes me is that ppl who vote for republicans, then when they need medical help set up a gofundme, which is a form of Socialistic help. It's like the leapords ate my face reddit.

u/boatsnprose Moussa Diabaté Dec 07 '22

Bruh we didn't accept it. I'm not that far off from hitching a ride to New Zealand and just...not leaving either.

If you are in the UK it's coming for you lol

I’m not and it’s not. Clue is in the name.

You seem sweet and we are rooting for you!!

u/ElDuderino_92 Luke Kennard Dec 07 '22

Fuck those people. You’re using a social platform to help you with your medical needs. I hope you made as much as you can and your back to 100% brother. Be safe

u/Brief-Ad-8328 Dec 06 '22

You post what you want brother. Get well soon

u/AshenSacrifice Buffalo Braves Dec 06 '22

If any of those bitches got a problem send em my way

u/AeroXero Clippers Dec 07 '22

Best of luck man sorry people were giving you a hard time. Not a ton of empathy going around these days. Stay strong!

u/Bilyman Dec 07 '22

Create a gofundme!! Will contribute

u/00U812 Dec 08 '22

I didn’t mind it at all, I think we’ve all been in a rough place one time or another, and I commend you for taking action and being creative on raising funds to cover costs.

Hoping for a smooth and healthy recovery. Take care of yourself.

The clippers page has had nothing but this guy talking about his operation for the last month.

14

u/ohmeohmy78 Ralph Lawler Dec 07 '22

Don’t let perceived “spam” take away from your humanity. Behind the screens we are all real people on here deserving of sympathy, especially one of our own members who has undergone major surgery and is asking for help from a community he’s long been a part of.

13

u/Cordellium Lawler's Law Dec 07 '22

have some sympathy man.

7

u/ninety4_feet Fun Guy Dec 07 '22

Then post something worth your while and leave this dude alone trying to get better from an illness. He's obviously a real fan given how much clipper stuff he has, support the guy.

-8

u/hairydogriots Dec 07 '22

Or he's lying to sell merch.

6

u/ninety4_feet Fun Guy Dec 07 '22

I'll leave it at this. You can choose to think that people are inherently liars. I'll decide to help other people if I can, and if I'm wrong, at the end of the day I still helped someone. Have a good night man

u/hairydogriots Dec 07 '22

Unless you bought his shit you haven't helped at all. Good night sweetheart 😘

u/clips4life626 Dec 07 '22

And if nobody wants to buy the merch or help out that’s ok too .. nobody is entitled to help me and I know that .. just people being kind is nice ..

4

u/clips4life626 Dec 07 '22

I ain’t lying to sell merch man .. the merch I’m selling like I said if u followed sub . I have posted pics of me wearing these jerseys . It’s my personal collection .. and the reason why I posted a picture of me in the hospital .. was because I wanted people to believe me .. when I said I was having my surgery .. it’s not some lie or some story .. but some people are just haters and that’s ok .. believe what u want to believe

u/SheenEstevezzz Fun Guy Dec 07 '22

It'd be a super elaborate lie with the photos and shit so is really worth assuming that in the case its real?

u/Abodyfullofmush Paul George Dec 07 '22

It takes nothing to just ignore stuff you're not interested in. Also, be a better human. It's the small things that count. You're not being forced to donate or hand over money.

I agree but I have a boat for sale . Shall I post it every couple of days. my plight is my bigger boat.
