That's it in a nutshell. There are some strong opinions being formed about unread articles.

I remember a quote from the late Mack Jones about Jim Bouton's Ball Four. 'I didn't read it, but I don't like it.'

Every now and then I turn on the CKAC morning show to see what kind of product it is, compared to the Team, and frankly, I don't find it sensationalised. They seem to want to do more theme material, outside of just the scores and highlights, but I've never heard rabid calls for Koivu's scalp. I was driving home from somewhere last July 2 and the guy was doing his show about why ufa's were avoiding MTl. If there was a hidden agenda, I didn't hear it.

Some of the other guys, be they Fournier and Bergeron or whoever, well they play different characters and if they rile up the public, well that means the public's paying attn.
