Why does Eklund post rumors during the playoff race?

Not this again

Does anyone have a score card on how he did at the deadline?

that is right

I have given up bashing him

I now make fun of the schmucks who give him money. Any of you who give ek and his site money, I have some cheap swamp land in Florida for you to buy and a bridg in Brooklyn you might like to set up tolls on

his antics on sportsnet exposed him. why? how does Smyth look in an oiler jersey? pat the boy on the head and send him on his way.

The thing that I find real funny, is the fact that it is THIS site that gave him the xposure that allowed him to get to where he was. Now, if I ran this place and I happpend to be Vito Corleone---I would have had a meeting the punk and demanded my share of the hiest

not sure how--but the fish just jumped in the boat and put the hook in it's mouth
The twenty year rebuild is on!!! Embrace the suck

I can guarantee that's not the case.

You know if someone like Dreger or McKenzie had actual proof against them in coming up with fake rumors the mods on here would probably let us rip into them, but with Eklund? Prepare for warnings if you try that.
McKenzie is a member here, you'd get infracted for attacking him. It has nothing to do with who the person is - it has everything to do with, "you can't attack members of the site."

Because Eklund's site as accepted as a legitimate media source. Whether you the individual poster here agree with that or not doesn't matter - the site's owners have made the decision that he is. Several people have demanded that stance change; not only has it not happened, a few of them are gone for their antics.

We're not having a new thread every week to complain about this - the same thing happens every time; someone comes on and complains, 13 people pile on and lob inappropriate remarks, and then the thread has to be closed. If you people really don't like him, QUIT TALKING ABOUT HIM HERE. It's pretty simple. You don't like the attention he gets, but then you come on here and ***** and whine and moan and complain about all the attention he gets - thus giving him attention in the process.

I'm also not answering PM's on this subject. The question has been kicked around enough with the owners, and their response has been the same - and frankly, they're tired of hearing it. As was said before, this is the final statement on the subject.

No promises this time.
