Well, it's easy to say things from behind a computer with a fake name. For the purposes of the phone call, I guess it doesn't matter.

But I think the point is that he wants him to phone in and say this stuff, not post it like this. That's the challenge.

To be honest though, like what's really going to happen?

Like does anyone expect a rational conversation? I just hope if JTS calls, he doesn't get hung up on(forgot who does this) midway through his point or whatever.

Hey, I'm just the messenger. But I can see why radio people would prefer to have someone talk to their face (or on the phone, whatever), rather than being smacked anonymously without any constructive feedback. That's what I assume, anyway.

I agree that the proposition is absurd, but there is no doubt that a school of thought exists out there that would defend Stauffer's statement. In fact, Stauffer is probably parroting what he reads over at Lowetide.

The Oilers signed Horcoff to an absurd contract. This is evidence that they consider him a first line player as well. Reddox is signed to a 2-way, and is toiling in the minors.
Great. In their world, Horcoff is a PPG player. Regardless of the fact that he's never been one, can't get anything done without riding on the coattails of one of the most creative offensive players we've had in a decade, has got nothing done this year, is one of the worst defensive players in the NHL currently and is getting his arse handed to him "at evens", is past the peak for players at his position, is oft-injured, and whiffs like it's going out of style?

That's why there's cult -- it's from the slavish devotion to a belief, in face of all facts against it, that this schmuck will somehow magically become this great player.

Stauffer opining about Horcoff being a PPG is pure fantasy and as you say, absurdity. Which makes me wonder how he can go from this independent-minded radio guy to a Stepford Wife in a few months time, at least without losing respect for himself.

Here's an idea, Brownlee. Why don't you come here and engage us in this thread, if what you're looking for is the discussion?

This is the second time someone's said this.

Unless the person on the other side is using Skype, and AFAIK, TEAM 1260 doesn't have a Skype dial-in account, you have to pay money to make calls to telephone numbers. It is not free. (But it is cheap)

Within a few minutes they could.

But I see what you're saying and I overlooked that.

Haha no worries -Ryan-, didn't mean to come off anything aggressive. So sorry.

Fair enough, I just hope it's more constructive than anything else.

Heh, no aggression detected. Just trying to clarify that I'm *trying* to be an objective voice here. I'm not taking anyone's side...although I do think JTS calling in would be a neat moment!

I like Brownlee's writing and usually agree with his take but maybe he should follow his own advice. I seem to remember something about 'I drink momma's pee' last year. That was on his turf and he never engaged said poster here although he was certainly capable of doing so. Just sayin.

Quite honestly, I'd like to hear if he talks the way he types.

EDIT: Althought JTS has been alot better about posting coherently.

I think he's trying to hustle us onto his radio show to sell some ads. I don't think he's necessarily after a real discussion, which he can get here, anytime he wants.

Another poster suggested jumptheshark step out from behind the fake name, call into the show and engage Stauffer. I liked the idea. Can't see that happening -- a lot of people would rather take their shots anonymously and swarm with their buddies on message boards -- but I wish people would do it more often.

If somebody has an issue with something I write, if you think my take is wrong or I'm just clueless, comment here by all means, but if you've got something to say, phone me at Just A Game on Wednesdays or Thursdays at 426-8326. Give your real name. Have your say. It'll be fun.

Oh goodie. Maybe someone will take Brownlee up on this. It's been a while since he challenged someone to a fight in a public forum.

it isnt really his show for us to hustle onto.


i have no idea about the deal between gregor and his co-hosts, but i assume the co-hosts get SFA when it comes to any ad space sold for Just a Game as well.
