...why some journalists need a kick in the ding-ding (as Eddie Murphy so eloquently put it).
A while ago I posted a thread here in regards to a comment made by Michael Silver at Yahoo! Sports.
The article made a pretty open ended comment:
The Cleveland Browns and Kansas City Chiefs will complete a trade at some point over the offseason, and no one will find out about it for several days...
A reader wrote in and asked this "so-called" journalist to expound on his comment and lo and behold here's the question and reply seen here
“What did you have in mind in regards to your last article … ‘The Cleveland Browns and Kansas City Chiefs will complete a trade at some point over the offseason, and no one will find out about it for several days. …’ The only thing I can come up with is Kansas City going after a QB. How about you?”
I was making light of the fact that both regimes (Mangini/Pioli) are so secretive. From what I can tell so far, even if the trade were a swap of seventh-round draft picks, each organization would treat its disclosure as an act of high treason.
* How is that "making light of the fact" when you posted this under the heading "Take it to the ATM", which would indicate a pretty solid and informed comment? Perhaps it's the fact that your inuendo's and writing lack any type of substance
* Have you written for the National Enquirer? If not, you don't have to worry about the economy woes since I'm sure you could easily get another position there in the "Big Foot Sightings" section.
* Are you close with Chris Mortensen and Jack Harry? If not, you can email them and they can include you on their weekly conference calls.
I fart in your general direction -with your mouth opened.
