Exactly. The "sign Miller to 5.6" line would hold more water if it was followed with "or let him walk and pick up ____ ." But he doesn't have a plan B for any of these unrealistic recommendations.

The additionally information about said mythical wings makes this so much better.

Threads like this = page views. Integrity, fair journalism practice fall by the wayside if you're racking up the hits.

Which is why I refuse to visit the BN website at least while those writers are there.

And it's also why I am thankful to posters like Buffalo87 and Sabretip and others for sharing the interesting snippets of these articles.

That let's me still get my blood pressure boiling without giving the Buffalo News the page hits they desire lol

You don't think the vast majority -- whatever figure that is -- agree with Bucky that Darcy should be fired?

Once again, you totally butcher my point.

I'm not butchering anything.

Your point is based on the assertion that a majority of fans agree with these columnists.

I disagree with that assertion.

Some might be surprised and perhaps offended, but I've never been one to read comments after my columns and rarely put much stock into what people say in emails.
Rest of column: reaction to comments.

Now I see why Bucky is such a Ruff apologist. He talks about feedback like Lindy does injuries.

There's one explanation for this. Bucky spent all day on a message board, forgot to write his article, so he took his favorite parts of the thread, stuck in some transitional phrases, and handed it in.
