I mean, come on man, the guy's new here and, even if his question was redundant, he asked it in a polite manner.

Please consider that if there were just 20 posters like you acting up like anal retentive *******s every day this site would be most undesirable.

Snap!


Nice, just inches from zingyness.

Don't you need to be registered somewhere to be considered a journalist ?

I know in France you need a "press card" but I don't know how it is in the US/Canada ?

Well, that doesn't necessarily means that they have been posted when it is said they've been.
Re-read Bayrider's post...
However, if he was doing that stuff regularly, he would probably have been caught more than once.

There is no doubt that Ek is a journalist. The point is his rumours dont pan out lol

Yeah, it's something like that. That's what Bobby Mac was actually backing Eklund up on, he is registered or whatever. I don't actually know anything about journalism, just going on what I quoted.

The only requirement in the U.S. is that you're a bleeding heart liberal.

I live in Edmonton and our local radio host, Bob Staufer, told a story on air about how during the finals in Carolina he went to dinner with Bob Mackenzie and a bunch of hockey media types. Bob Staufer said he started going on about how this blogger named Eklund was a total moron and went on and on about this guy, then the guy beside him tapped him on the shoulder and told him he was Eklund and smiled and walked away. I guess Mackenzie then said somethin' like " ahhh, yes, you must be a radio guy" and laughed. I guess it was pretty funny.

So in short, Eklund is now on the radio here once in awhile (on Bob Staufer's show), and is supposedly a well-respected well-known hockey writer. He even admits on the radio here that he could throw out about 100 rumors and maybe 2 will come true............
