I waited 18 months to subscribe - just because I cant stand the owner - subscribed 5 months ago - ended my subscription with my last payment in late June.

10 - I loved the idea of readers commenting - when the owner selectively chooses who he trolls, he lost me. Its pretty clear he went after the readers who weren't afraid of calling B.S. on different things that just appeared way out of line and he couldn't defend.

9 - Good Dudes - its just another way to pander to the different teams in town and get some goodwill. Rarely was a column about anyone who truly makes a difference by sacrificing money or time to help those who are less fortunate - its just a glorified article praising people for behaving the way they are supposed to behave.

6 - the subscribers need to know this - I always thought about subscribing just for a day under a different name to solely post a comment announcing how he fired Alan Saunders so those people who hold him in high regard would find out.

2 - the $50 foam brick idea was just so horrible of an idea, I wish he went through with it so the bad publicity could have followed. He actually deleted all comments related to the idea and even the few paragraphs he wrote about it in that Sat column when he announced the idea to just whitewash it from the site altogether which just screams that he knew it was a crap idea.

I am going to add a few of my own:

1. To criticize ex-employees in a passive-aggressive manner is such in poor taste. He never directly bashed Mackey but he made it a point to say his replacement would be able to handle a tough beat like the Stelers ( which was basically saying Mackey was too soft or nice to cover the team)

2. The segment of subscribers who would believe anything he wrote - I think he could tell people that drinking motor oil would extend your life 10 years and those idiots would go buy a case of Pennzoil and have one with their dinner each night. Then, the over the top ass-kissing is so pathetic ( I am sitting at my desk crying - this is the greatest thing I ever read, you deserve a Pulitzer)

If there is KARMA in this world, that guy has a boatload of bad stuff coming his way.

I think the brick thing did happen, didn't it? Didn't they post a tweet showing a box full of foam bricks (anyone with toddlers might be surprised that these cost $50...)?
