Here is an abbreviated list for Flyers information:
2) Broadstreet Hockey
3) Flyers Faithful
104) Timmy P
105) Foul-mouthed guy at bar who sometimes watches Flyers games
106) Subway graffiti
108) Guy on street wearing a "Daigle" jersey
109) Sarah Baicker
Sarah Baicker is to journalism what Carrot Top is to male modeling.
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.
While there's no reason to take her that seriously, there's no reason to take ourselves that seriously either.
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.
