It was quite clear that he had not played since he was rumbled, it was also quite clear from your play history that you had not either. That i looked at a bit later in day so below bold seemed like sense to me.
He friended you pre expulsion, you log on much later and accept the flashing light. Not sure how someone booted from game can still show in your friend requests but it must.
Now, folks who liked Dennis remember yours and his exploits and they were mainly the ones who got the hump with your gofundme stuff, they were also upset when you were posting non stop on the Andyson memorial thread with your ideas. Thats been sorted now, its being ran the way folks wanted it to be. Even i had other ideas but accepted the "organisers" wanted to do it their way......and i nod my head and say good luck to them. Its quite easy.
This is a game, folk make friends. In my opinion more in their clubs , thats certainly the case for me, barring a few other individuals on here. Real life can get in the way, folk i was fond of have actually died recently, one being my good mate Shovlovin (Brian). Others in our club have had major major issues to deal with, i feel sad for them as i feel sad for you, but toward them i have a ni on family/friend bond, with you i dont but i still wish you well.
I wont respond to any questions/responses as i dont do that now, but good luck.
