Why am I receiving unsolicited emails from this company?

Well the spamming of a thread no one has any interest on isn't working, so they're using new tactics.

Good thing Joe here is still contributing to this forum and not solely spamming advertisements.

Second String Leather Company co-owner Joe Messina presenting Bandits Goalie School Owner and Director Stan Matwijiw with a very special gift for his 46th birthday. 

This gift comes from the new Thatcher Demko Stars & Stripes Collection and plays a significant roll in what Bandits is all about; Family, Unity and Having A Purpose (HAP). Thatcher has also been a student within Bandits Goalie School since 2009 and has not only embraced HAP since learning about it but has continued to spread the word to others about the importance of “Having A Purpose” in everyday life. 

Since 1999, Bandits Goalie School has been a driving force for goaltender training in North America. The importance of this gift revolves around the foundation in which Bandits was built on, Having A Purpose. 

The HAP mantra took on a greater recognition within the athletic community when longtime Bandits student Ian Jenkins passed away in May of 2011. With Ian’s passing, Bandits has carried on Ian’s legacy each day by instilling the HAP mindset into each of its students. 

The initials are much more then three letters but a way of life, thinking and mental planning. The HAP mindset has taken individuals to new heights, achieve unthinkable goals and more importantly; become a better person. 

It was with great pleasure to give Mr. Matwijiw his gift. For over 2 decades he has given people direction and guidance with HAP, now he has this piece that has been truly crafted with a PURPOSE.

Saw these pads on Sideline Swap.  I was going to buy them.  Now they’re going to get shredded.

I believe they're already shredded - there was a lot of people on GGSU who weren't happy with the choice to repurpose these pads.

Weren’t they the same people who mocked the older goalies who were upset about the vintage gear being used as source material? Looks like the shoe is on the other foot now - or more accurately, the pad is on the other leg now.
