Over the years, Overdrive Editor Max Heine has felt the wrath of two industry trade groups for inappropriate and unprofessional conduct...

After publishing this article in 2014, "Real Women in Trucking" President Desiree Wood posted: "Max Heine represents something very ugly in our culture and that is this idea that Women and their bodies are on display for spectators regardless of their ability. I do feel he owes a apology to Women Truckers."

She then wrote a letter to Heine referring to his "thoughtless remarks as dehumanizing, demeaning and sexist."

Overdrive, in turn, possibly Heine himself, mischaracterized the essence of Wood's comments and watered them down here.  Seven years later, we believe Wood is still waiting for that apology.

SBTC recently exposed Heine's pattern and practice of publishing defamatory comments against its Executive Director James Lamb, trying desperately to keep a 2016 political hit job nuisance civil lawsuit alive, we believe, to disparage Lamb & SBTC to aid its advertiser OOIDA in their rival for members. SBTC outlines Heine's motives here, which include the facts that Lamb stopped advertising with Overdrive and Randall Reilly held a secret --possibly collusive-- staff meeting targeting Lamb when he competed with Randall Reilly by producing the Orlando Truckers Conference in competition with GATS. SBTC is considering producing a new show. Lamb is considering asking USDOJ for an antitrust investigation whether Randall-Reilly engaged in an anti-competitive conspiracy starting in 2006 that has unreasonably restrained interstate trade in the trucking trade show and trade group arenas. It appears Heine has been leading the charge.

In a recent poll over 85% of respondents said they believe SBTC should sue Randall Reilly.

Whether he is acting in a rogue capacity or as an agent for a broader Randall Reilly scheme to defeat competition, we believe it is time for Heine to go to stop these shenanigans.

We the undersigned hereby call for Randall Reilly to immediately #FireMaxHeine.
