Indie Profiles


Being as I'm not on the ground, I'd love to have an opportunity to learn more about the current crop of GDI & Independent leaders at UF. Normally what you're reading would be sent out to leaders on a personal basis, almost in interview-format. Today, I'm not only asking those same leaders, but I'm opening up the format to the general readership.

With the exception of the Spring 2006, when this blog split its endorsement between Swamp & Unite, this is a GDI blog.

Please post comments. What have O&B's leaders tried to do? Where have they failed? What positive qualities do you like about them? I always hear the system people knock the Minority for 'too much talk and too little work,' so here's your opportunity. Also, I'd really to hear about bills, resolutions, dissents. I'd like to know what YOU think. Who has Tommy's backing? Mark & Sam - I know hardly anything about this "rivalry."

Where are the women in today's Independent movement? Who are they?

"This supposed 'rivalry' simply does not exist. Sam and I share the same long-term goal for the independent movement, the complete destruction of the FBK backed system. As we are both very assertive and strong willed, this occasionally leads to some behind the scenes conflict over minor tactical issues. However, this type of competition of ideas is what keeps the Orange and Blue Party one step ahead of Gator. Everyone forcefully advocates their position and only the best proposals move forward. I would like to think that Sam and I bring out the best in each other, just as Kyle Huey brings out the best in Ben Cavataro or Cain Norris brings out the best in Joe Trimboli."

What have they failed at? Keeping their party together, that's what.

Anon 3:33PM: And what has your party failed at? Doing anything at all.

That's a great posed shot there at the bottom. It is almost reminiscent of the cover of the last N'Sync album. The indy movement is much more GQ than it was in your day Christian.

Who is Joe Trimboli?

This is definitely a movement of leaders, not an army of followers. The Independents of today are def leagues ahead of my day, even sans an SBP (like we had w/ Access).

O&B is a failure, if they'd a been smart they would have rallied behind Eric.

Rallied behind Eric Wolf, your joking right. That kid is a bigger failure than Reilly's administration.

Oh yeah, what were they thinking? How could they have missed an opportunity to have the entire party and movement co-opted under the guidance of a weak spirit like Eric?!

They would have rallied behind Eric and what? Joined Gator?

I second McShera, except for the part about one step ahead. It's more like three.

Bracco does have that Joey Fatone look about him.

Sam, of course, is Lance Bass.

Joey Fatone is from Orlando; I am from Orlando. His family is from New York and is Italian; my family is from New York and is Italian. Joey was part of N*SYNC, my sister tortured me with N*SYNC CDs. I'm beginning to see a pattern here...maybe in 15 years I will look like him if I put on another 100 pounds :lol:.

Doesn't Kyle Huey look like one of the guys who sit in the car and talk about their food on the Sonic commercial?

The women of the independent movement were tired of being treated like second-class citizens and having the credit for their work stolen by the little boys who think they run the party. So they left.
