    The rating plummets daily, it goes back up eventually.

    I have been seeing him more often in friends' towns than in my own, I hate when he shows up but it's free money for doing a simple task. It could be worse you could lose him and have to earn your way back up over several days but it's not like it's a big deal- annoying, but not that big of a deal.

    Yea the police station, the penitentiary, training walls, and swat van are the only items you can buy with in game cash that will help your righteousness rating.

    He lost me donuts once, when we I entered my town to be the mystery box, won donuts from the box, and just at the movement it said to collect my donuts he popped up with the stupid notice to catch him and I could see the donuts in the background but couldn't collect them and couldn't get to sideshow Bob because the screen was frozen. Also, I can't count the times I've been dragged to the edge of a neighbor town and hit a building instead of being at their graffiti buildings and it cost me a tap.

    I saw him THIRTY FOUR times in my main town yesterday. And it's no surprise. :(

    Sideshow Bob is one of my fav characters on the show. His role in this game however is nothing less than irritating. At least the past week Bob has appeared in my town EVERY time I open the app. This is not exaggeration. He pops up at about every other friend town that I visit. He quite simply will not leave. On top of that the rightousness meter goes haywire and even after he's caught and graffiti is removed my rating will often plummet to one star. My question for this forum is, is anyone else having a similar problem? My statement is that I believe bob, his mechanics and the rating that they effect are broken and need to be removed from the game. (God willing he would then be repurposed in the game as a standard or premium character).

    It seemed to me that they recently increased his frequency of appearing.

    It also seemed to me that it was in response to comments on this forum that we didn't see him enough.

    So basically, much like trying to set a thermostat in an office to make everyone comfortable (which is IMPOSSIBLE), if it's not enough people complain and if it's too much people complain.

    I'm pretty sure he's intended to be an irritant so people will chase him. If you don't like him, buy six training walls and ignore him like many others do.

    I personally think it's funny watching him run around. He sticks his leg out sometimes... Id actually like more random animations for him

    I have never seen Bob stick out his leg. Pics or it didn't happen!

    It saddens me that such an iconic figure in the Simpsons lore has been relegated to village pest.

    He's one character that can't be a premium simply because everyone had access to him from day one. It was in a different way of course, but if he becomes a premium that'll be the biggest F U to us EA can make.

    But isn't that classic sideshow Bob??

    The epitome of potential, wasted! I love it!

    HOWEVER, TO LEAVE OUT THE RAKE GAG AND HIS GRUMBLE IS JUST PLAIN NEGLIGENCE ON EA'S PART. It should definitely be added somehow.

    If you go to Other Springfield, and quickly scroll over to the Squidport... he's ALWAYS there.

    Even if you tap him, and go back in. Every time.. he's back.
