LOL.....I used to be the main prick but now I have to give in and be nicey nice.....not sure which way is right....if you are too rough, the guys cry and if you are too soft, the guys walk all over you....I am still searching for the middle. I will say that if you have a guy working as a foreman, I would want him to put the company first and not his buddies on the crew.I got one Teamie (me), and I can be a badass mofo (read prick) at times too...but usually I am a sweetie pie.
In your eyes with the information you have, you are right. I am the dumb bastard that hired an inept crew and sent them out without any guidance and just about got them killed. I never once backed away from taking criticism. I don't care to give you the whole picture but if you must know....the foreman on the crew that day was 25% owner of the company and out ranked me and disobeyed my job instructions. It all came out in our review of the incident. He told the cutter to go over the wire and cut the tree. The cutter did not pay attention to how close he was. He admitted he knew what he was doing was wrong but the foreman told him to do it. So, yeah....my fault all the way. I came here to get more information to support my belief he did not know as much as he thought and to help show him how serious this stuff is. I can't make someone do something if they are going to disobey my instructions when I turn my back.Weren't you the guy that sent out an inept crew who tore down service then started a thread called electric line mishap . When it shoulda been called I almost got a idiot BBQ'd today ! Just saying if your gonna say how tough ya gotta be maybe a dose of training in your case would be better ! Just saying

These two Nazi associations should butt out. What the hell is this world coming to when a TV show causes such a uproar. Just because you have a option, it doesn't mean you need to force it on the rest of the world. If you don't like the show don't watch it.TCIA & ISA have sent a joint letter to Nat.

Excellent points, can you link or scan and show the letter? Thanks.We don't get that Nat Geo channel up here, so I never got to enjoy watching it.
Don't understand how / why they (TCIA / ISA) would have drafted that letter with Andy Felix from Tree Tech listed as a Director of the Board on the letterhead. It makes that "public relations" letter look very cynical and hypocritical. If they (TCIA) actually mean what they say they meant in the letter, then Andy has got to resign.......which needed to have happened before the letter was signed.
