Even Eklunds forum regulars are starting to question his tactics, “tmlfan69” posts:

And another regular “Aetherial” posts:
The question is not reporting it.
The question is assigning an e# to it, which he said he doesn’t do if he sees it elsewhere first.
Then, at some point, he will claim to have *called* 40 or so trades/demotions whatever.
Then, he will sell seasons tickets on the premise that he has insider information.
He may or may not have insider information, who’s to say.
I think it is fair game to call him out though on what appears to be purposely misleading the patrons of this site.
