If you've never heard of Rosie then I implore you to read her articles. On any subject. She's an oasis in the desert of simpleton journalism. She will write of honour killings, corruption, and hockey with equally common sense and equally the need of a thesaurus by your side. Try her out.

She's not a sports writer, she's a writer. She researches and speaks intelligently on a number of subject at her selection. She's my favourite no sense writer on almost all matters.

Who? Seriously? I don't think anybody needs the opinion of the best whatever in the country to know that Cherry needs retire. Bergeron also.

Well that article has to be the worst written piece i've ever seen.

You can just feel her bias dripping from the article by starting her article talking about CBC being a "old boys network". Then about how they talk badly.

Then she mentions about Mike Milbury and he's not even on HNIC.

And her solution is to have more Damien Cox on television?

Bu Bye, hair head.

If that's the best writer in the country

Just another angry, man-hating pig of an excuse for a woman.

lol @ DiManno being the "greatest writer in this country." She's a hack columnist. And sorry, I can't abide racists. And yeah, McSorleyStick is the best, or maybe Lafleurs Guy. Or me.

In all seriousness there are several people on this forum community who are better writers.

MSM journalists are for the most part mediocre writers. It's not a job that pay very well, it's not very prestigious, and it's not creative either ... thus on average it will not attract the best.

I think you all are mistaking DiManno for Toronto writer Heather Malik.

Read Rosie for a month or 2, then come back to this thread.

Of course a newspaper filled with pinkos is going to hate Don Cherry's old school attitude.

Rosie is not a Pinko and doesn't bow to her left wing editorial board. Believe me I hate this paper, but Rosie is a gem.

I don't know anything about the Toronto media, but I know when it's "The Star", it sucks. Damien Cox being the one I hate the most.

I used to have a monthly column that appeared in Sports Illustrated btw. It was unpaid and on my own time. Only lasted a year and then I stopped writing due to the last NHL strike.

No joke.

So I really am the best writer in the Country.

Please contain your delusions to your Price thread. This is somewhat pathetic.

The love-hate relationship between Lafleurs Guy and Agnostic is the best thing that has ever happened on this board

I interviewed Gallagher, Delmas, Pribyl and Jimmy Bonneau (ex Bulldog, now alternate captain for the Worcester Sharks). All while NOT a member of the media.

Boom.
