BBC News - Brazil Rocinha drug lord 'Nem' jailed for 12 years
Now you know ...
During interrogation, "Nem" pinpointed blame to one man...Josh McDaniels
They found Nem in November 2011. He was hiding in a car driving out of Rocinha as hundreds of officers moved in.
His driver tried to prevent the car from being searched by claiming diplomatic immunity. He said he was the honorary consul of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Apparently, this feint only works if you've remembered to have that flag of Congo attached to your front fender.
Can he play safety?
Apparently he and his accomplice, maverick4, fingered Wes Welker as the trigger man saying, "he dropped the ball, and it cost us".
This is a nominee for Post of the Year.
can someone explain? i feel alot dumber than i usually do.
This was before your time, rookie.
Antonio Francisco Bonfim Lopes, of all the user names he has used to try to post here this is not one. Although there was an "AFBL" just before he came here as "Linda".
"NEM" was the name of a poster on this board a few years ago who I believe got banned from the site. He had an irrational hatred for Josh McDaniels.
McDaniels was merely a weak sequel compared to his dislike of Charlie Weis.
I know of NEM from another board. Oh, if only he was in Brazil.
i have been here since 07...don't know who the hell nem was or remember
Other aliases were "Linda the Patsfan."
Before her/his apprehension, a plot was uncovered to assassinate the local soccer clubs Minister of offense - El Carlitos Weis
It's nice to see some good news here.
NEM's posts were always... interesting..... in a sort of Hunter Thompson irrational/psychotic sort of way. Certainly not the GOOD Hunter Thompson stuff.
Last I heard about him was he was quite sick and had fallen on financial hardship..or at least he said he was, fact and fiction was a blur..
If anyone is interested you can probably track him down here.. but don't poke a sleeping bear.. he left on really bad terms with Ian..
I am guessing he wasn't a fan of Bill O'Brien either. I feel a little empty inside that I missed NEM the O'Brien years.
Don't buy it. He would always make the pity play and plead ill health and financial hardship the 23 times Ian banned him. Finally he got the well deserved permanent ban hammer after threatening several posters...repeatedly.
I think most old threads went down the memory hole as Ian attempted to erase all of his posts from day one.
NEM stood for New England Mike. Yes, he was irrational and often threatened other posters who disagreed with him. The offensive coordinators were always to blame for everything that was wrong with the Pats at any given time.
Last I heard he was living in Arizona and active in local Pariot fan groups.
It wouldn't be surprising that he would be posting on other fan sites.
Absolutely. I remember all too well how I would think "Well, he's just a crazy old uncle -- a bit too passionate, but still basically a guy with his heart in the right place" but the truth is, however much latitude he was given, he'd always go too far. Poor guy. Still, he served, he is counted ...
He pretty much got banned from every Pats board he was on....at times threatening other members with bodily harm. You knew it was only a matter of time before his inevitable meltdown would occurr. Sometimes coming back as another identity, including his wife and a female fan. I'm not sure if I would classify it as comical or just plain sad.
The Linda the Pats Fan run was short...I almost missed it. I remember thinking, "Damn, this chick talks and swears just like a guy." (not that there's anything wrong with that).
I agree, this should get "thread of the year" recognition. I remember the Nemster...
Last I saw him, he was posting on Bleacher Report.
Didn't also spread a rumor or bad mouth Ian on other fan boards? I remember he did something else that was pretty low beyond threatening other posters.
Didn't he also get banned from his "own" Patriots board? The story I had heard was that he was banned from one Patriots fan board and decided to start his own. Eventually he became so unbearable that the other mods banned him.
As for the stories of him hitting hard times financially, someone else noted that he while he claimed to have lost his car, TV, etc, he never seems to lose his PC or internet access.
I forget -- did he overuse capital letters and commas in football discussions too, or did he just save that for politics?
The last straw was he harassed Ian at home via phone over a suspension for threatening another poster... Ian had enough.
Sometimes I wonder if NEM is really "Steve from Fall River"....
Good tip. Thanks.
I never met NEM, but GOD, I miss him.
Yes, got banned from his own board due to soliciting donations from other members as I recall. Got banned from KFFL (twice) and Patriots Planet. Used to post as "AWOM" too many years ago - claimed it was "A Weis Old Man".
Separate names with a comma.
