    I am very confused about this whole situation. Personally, every warning bell goes off and has for months. The thing that I find so strange is how it got to this point. Copyright issues are no joke and neither is privately contacting minors, yet he made it thru almost an entire season behaving like this. There are a ton of people I know who follow him and even more that he follows (including an 8-year-old!). Many of whom are from Cp's gym. Coaches are on his list and he featured the gym's premier team in the video. He has items from some of our most well known athletes and teams. I think it builds a false sense of trust for the kids. I am sure that some would think that he must be safe, if <insert cheerleb of the week> had close access to him.

    The whole situation is weird and scary. My heart breaks for his kids since they seem to have been dragged into it and I am really nervous that we will find out some bad things as parents start checking the kid's social media

    It's been posted several times in this thread already. Tim Radigan. He's already deleted all his social media if you were planning to try looking for him.

    It got to this point because the kids liked the attention and possible free swag he offered regardless of how inappropriate some actions could be. Some parents also saw no issues but for the most part he avoided most adults on social media.

    I imagine he will come up with new accounts and a new "identity" reaching out to the cheerleaders who have been his most eager and devoted (I was shocked at some of their responses on Twitter supporting him). I think he was so deep in that all this will not stop him but will make him more covert until he starts to forget and gets careless. I don't think he is innocent and just a super fan.

    Not to my knowledge. Level 3 is sounding familiar but I'm not positive.

    Did you fly in and rent a vehicle? How do you maneuver parking at the convention center?

    I did rent a vehicle, it was pretty cheap. And parking at the convention center was actually pretty easy. Saturday and Sunday they had business parking lots designated as public parking lots. Monday we parked right in the parking garage.
