Sarah Baicker doesn't like you

From Sarah's twitter: 'I need a haircut so bad even the CHILDREN on HFBoards are hinting at it. Yikes'.

I guess she reads this, so:

Sarah,

We hate Tim P. Please try and get him fired.

Signed,

All Flyers Fans

Ah yes, any criticism of Ms. Baicker re: her look or her actual journalism-ability from us must mean we are children.

How could we possibly have adult-level education to do such a thing?

She is far superior!

Well, this tweet isn't exactly panning out.

Sarah Baicker is to journalism what Carrot Top is to male modeling.

Indeed.

She does realize the origination of this though, right?

Commentary re: her look on TV by the people on HFboards MEANS that we are the ones who watch the feed in which she works for. So, in turn, insulting your audience's intelligence/maturity or whatever HAS GOT TO BE THE DUMBEST THING POSSIBLE.

But seriously, it's just stupid.

How did they find her and Timmy P? Some of the most arrogant, least skilled writers imaginable.

If it's any consolation to her, she falls into the "Yes" category of my Binary Scale.

Journalism 101:

"Don't bite the hand that feeds you"

Someone didn't pay attention in school and I'm thinking it's not the aforementioned "CHILDREN"

Sarah, I graduate in the spring and have every intention of stealing your job. Hell, I'll do it for free. The best fans in sports deserve better than the half assed "journalism" you and Tim P. offer.

HFBoards is more than your audience...as you've proven with some of your articles, it's a SOURCE. Don't bite the hand that feeds. You're destined to go hungry.

Score! You sum it up nicely.

I went to school for journalism as well, used to work for a South jersey newspaper. I am just a child though and couldn't possibly understand journalism or hockey analysis.

I followed her for about a week at one point. Much like Panatch, I couldn't handle it any longer than that.

Guys, you're all freaking out. Are you sure she wasn't joking?

I mean, freaking out at "children" seems kind of petty anyway.

And she's not all that bad at her job.

Well takes one to know one.

I mean isn't it petty to even acknowledge commentary that isn't complimentary by insulting a group of people?

Fodder for fire right back at her.

She's supposed to be the professional, not us.

Just saying.

While there's no reason to take her that seriously, there's no reason to take ourselves that seriously either.

IMO she's better at her job then Panaccio but that's not saying much. Personally I couldn't care less what someone I never met has to say about me but honestly it probably was a joke.

Tweets about her hair are fascinating.

If she's simply joking, people can still clown on her comment.

You're right but I think what has happened here is that we are all sick of the mediocre journalism coming out of what is supposed to be the main source of Flyers info. We get one-sided takes on everything with little substance and so we discuss among ourselves to get larger perspectives.

Half of these journalists don't even consider the fans' opinions on what we want to hear about and then turn around and insult us in a public forum.

It's a culmination of things - she just happened to make a petty comment at the wrong time. You object yourself to criticism as a public member - whether you are the athlete or the journalist. If you can't take it, you are in the wrong field. It doesn't serve anyone any good by feeding into it and deciding to consider the commentary only when you want to insult us.
