I realized that I hadn't read any of Chair's posts in a while so I tried searching and googling. He hasn't posted in 11 months. The Life in Lansing doesn't return any result. He had that tv show w/ David Thomas and that doesn't seem to be on-going.
So, does anyone know what's up w/ Chair these days?
We are the SPARTANS and They are NOT!!! [spartan 2]
His name still comes up as "liking" this site sometimes when I log in.

Sam Hosey, aka da Chairman is working for the state in IT and is involved with his church. If Earl was still on you could have called him.
Unfortunately Da Chairman wasn't welcome here after the 247 changes.
His posts rocked and his info was reliable. Wouldn't mind seeing him post from time to time.

RIP to da chair?
Back in the day, Chair had a regular job with the same large IT firm I used to work for. But when the powers that be told us all to go work at home, I lost touch with a lot of people. And then they started cutting people from the payroll like we had cooties so I have no idea if he still works there or not..
He was an electric poster.

Are you kidding me? I remember seeing him post his info here. Did he get blackballed?
Hell, Sam's free content was probably better than half of the premium hacks who are employed here.

This. Da chairman was da shit.
Explaining why they chased him.
He always had good info to add to a conversation. Or, which probably got him in trouble, he had info no one else had and created a conversation. It's a shame that he isn't actively sharing anything these days, he hasn't Tweeted in months.
I'd guess he's spending more time on his family and career. Can't blame a guy for that.
Him being "not welcome here" is news to me. As far as I knew we were trying to bring him on as a staff writer. He definitely wasn't chased off.
It's unfortunate (to say the least) that Da Chairman was blackballed by 247. I always looked forward to his informative posts.
Seriously. Downvoted by two morons? At least I'm giving actual information instead of baseless conjecture.
When we moved over here, Trevor was trying to expand the writers and the one guy that we wanted to bring in for his basketball recruiting expertise was Sam. The last I talked to Trevor about it they were trying to negotiate. There's never been anything that I've been privy to that he was "blackballed". This seems like the segment of people who thought that we were deleting all Rexrode articles too.
Probably just another thing that people want to believe so they run with it as fact. Doesn't sound like something Barnes would do, in retrospect. Apologize for jumping to conclusions with the rest of the Springfield pitchfork mob. Would be great to see him back.
Are people really running with info from GRR and accepting it as fact?
"The RCMB on 247 is one of the most awful, alarming, inappropriate, disgusting, and offensive msg boards in the history of the internet."
It's OK. Although people are downvoting every post I make in here for some reason.
Do down votes matter? Serious question. Like if you get too many so you get a time out?
No. Nothing except poster rating. I just find it funny that people (or one person) is reacting negatively to news that the dude wasn't being blackballed. Some people would rather believe a lie since it paints 247 in a bad light.
Bet you never lose at the track the day after the race either.
Wish Da Chairman would come back too. Loved his segments.

Sorry you got called out for making stuff up.
Who killed 5 hookers? That 247 is one evil sonafabeech.
Well I don't mean I'm REALLY sorry. What I mean is probably what you mean. Get sick of the mob mentality around here at times and don't really want to be a part of it.
Except for Nucky. I'm all in on that mob.
