    I normally just browse thru and see what is going on. This is my first post and I hope it does some good. 1 year ago before spring nat'ls in vegas I tried to buy a synergy on ebay from someone from canada user name youngguns87. I just saw a bat review from user youngguns87. If this is the same guy he is a thief and was under investigation by the canadien police. If not the same guy which I would find hard to believe I apologize. However if it is the same guy do not trust anything he says. DO NOT buy anything from him as he is a fraud. I was put in contact with detectives after reading a post on the old easton message board. Once again if he is not the same guy(derek gibson) I apologize but suggest he change his username. Has anyone else been through this? I am still owed about $400.00 from this guy. Do not know what happened with the police after speaking with them. They said they had several people wanting him charged. He was booted from ebay after that and apparently stiffed many.

    I was told long ago that the man known as "youngguns" was in fact Derek Gibson. Steer clear for future reference.

    The guy has already been found and the law is dealing with him. I'm not sure what came out of it though.

    Derek Gibson

    I have met this guy once before I knew who he was. He is from Cambridge Ontario. Sad to say he is a Canadian...Last I heard both he and his father were in court getting tried. Results of that trial haven't been posted by anyone yet. I'm surprised that they let him do any ebay stuff at all! Stay away from him. He tried to rip me off and I wanted to make the deal in person and he was unavailable everytime I set up a time to meet him. I know that many of the serious ball players here know him and the ones that have dealt with him want to kick his butt.

    You Must Be Mistaken

    My Name Is Not Derek Gibson, You Must Be Thinking Of Someone Else. I Would Not Steal From Anyone.

    Please Introduce Yourself

    Then, if you would be so kind, please introduce yourself to the board ... to calm our concerns. Your lack of identity details in light of the extremely coincidental board name raises valid concerns of the brothers here, which can easily be addressed by you. If I were you, I would volunteer some verifiable personal identification in order to put this issue to rest. If you are not Derek Gibson, you should be able to easily prove you are not. We are an honest group and intend to stay that way.
    Thanks,
    **** Shepherd

    Exactly, Simple as that. We don't want to drive away any honest people. But we don't want to bring in any low-lifes. Like Shep said, if your not Gibson, just introduce yourself.

    Be who you may...but you are guilty till proven otherwise in my eyes...The all caps name just reeks of you Derek-I know they are in fact trying to prosecute you,as I have been kept in touch with,but I know I wil NEVER get anything back....And you will just get a very slight slap for all you have done...Someday someone will settle this up with you,and that is worth every cent of 1,100.00 to me......Keith

    Yeh...who in their right mind would have an ID, like younggunz, when everyone an their mother knows that younggunz is a dirtbag, low-life canadian, who owes tons of people, tons of money.

    For that matter, DG is not supposed to get online, or go near computers, via a court order.

    Tell us who you are, and why on earth you chose to be YOUNGGUNS87...

    Don't beleive this clown.

    Gunner Young was a name he used on message boards to rip people off. This ass clown is Derek or someone trying to pull our legs to make us think he is Derek. If it is Derek, you are a F*&kin a$$hole and if and when I find you, you are a De@d man. I know you only owe me for 1 bat, but that is enough for me. And by the way, no one will miss you and they will never find your rotting carcus with the freinds I got that owe me a couple of "favors".

    See now, when he dissapears they'll be looking at you. Let's all just be warned that Derek Gibson may be lurking again. I'm sure he knows that plenty of people are "gunning" for him. No need to turn the message board violent.

    I hate to ask this but if you are only 17 why are you here? Every where I played 18 was the age cutoff to play in all my leagues?! Also you chose the most notorious name and are from the same city....just seems kinda fishy imo.

    Gary "Gunner"?????

    I just think that it is way too convenient to use that alias and be from that town, I am ashamed that DG is a fellow Canadian. In this guys defence, if it was DG, why on earth would he use the same alias that he always has????

    Doesn't make sense either way.

    Youngguns87 -
    I do not know you, nor Derek Gibson, nor Gary "Gunner" Young. But what I do know is that there are a TON of coincidences to your situation: your board name, your "real" name, your city, your use of caps, your newbie status. I don't feel as though you are on the up-and-up, whoever you are, and will not welcome you here ... nor your business ... until a known poster on this board, or a well-respected poster on another board, can vouch for you as not being Derek Gibson. This may seem harsh if you are not he, but he has caused huge ill-will throughout the softball community and will remain an unwelcome pariah. With this knowledge, feel free to clear your name by having a known and respected member of this, or another, board vouch for you.

    Blame Canada!

    As Kenny, Stan, Kyle, and Cartman said "BLAME CANADA!" This guy sounds like a real hoser, eh?

    Stop blaming Canada for this fool. His type are everywhere and with a population about 10 times that of Canada that just means statistically you probably have about 10 Derek Gibson's in the states.


    Not to defend this ******* but we all know you don't have to lock your doors in the states right?

    And yes this new guy is full of shyte.
    17 years old he has no business with slo pitch in Canada.
    18 is the youngest we allow to play.

    I would imagine it is his way of having some fun or someone else having fun with him and us.

    Screw him.

    This dirtbag is DG...or one of his boys, who CAN use the internet. I am going to forward this link, to the detective working the case....so he can see that DG or one of his goons is still prowling.

    Bad thing is DG still owes $1000's of dollars to some of my buddies. He only owes me one more bat, but I am not holding my breath.

    When I first read the whole name and birthday deal...I called "BS"...no kids play this kind of ball, and surf the net about it. Here in lies the main problem....DG is a complete idiot, and has been since day 1!! He assumes noone else is as smart as him, and his literacy proves this.

    Actually we invented baseball also.
    That Ken Burns Baseball show was just american propaganda.The first official game of baseball played between the New York Knickerbockers and a group of cricket players in the 1800's in New York is just false.

    The first game was played in Canada in 1812 when General Brock invented the game as a reward for his troops for winning the war.

    LOL

    I think I'm dead now.

    I have a son that was born in August 1989 and he's 14. So unless this dude was born in early January he is only 16. Nice story but I don't think so.

    Gibson's obviously older than he states. He leaves a trail that's pretty easy to follow. I found this on a Volleyball website from two years ago, where he was promoting a tournament and asking people to send him money. It has his true address and phone number on it as well.... dumba$$

    I wonder if the tournament ever took place or if it was another scam of his?

    If this is the original DG, then he must be pretty dumb to use his youngguns name that we all know... unless this is someone's idea of a sick joke... somone is pulling our legs, people!!!! This is NOT DG!

    Besides, didn't they put DG away?

    DG's trial isn't over yet as far as people in Ontario know. As soon as it is done I'm sure it will be over all of the boards up here.

    Don't make this about nationality. Derek did what he did because he's an a**hole, not because he's from Canada.

    P.S. Hockey is Canadian, and I think we invented basketball too!!
