Some day Matt you will get over this obsession with him. He makes one comment you dont like and all hell breaks loose. Can you imagine how many people dislike you? If they thought like you, it would be more than we could count.

Lighten up Aaron... I am the furthest thing from a Jay or a Valley fan and even I know he was a total ass last year during the selection show. I don't agree with everything that Mattie says but how can you defend this fat ass and that idiotic comment when he knows it's going to be out there for all to see? Not only short sighted and homophobic... but likely career suicide.

Did you mean "he and Tim Hardaway have a date with obscurity"? Good lord Matt, I can see why you didn't go into print media.

Being a sports talk show host means never having to get it right OR say you're sorry because you didn't.

Incidentally, comparing Billy Packer's one-word bonehead statement with Hardaway's long-winded hate-fest is a lot like comparing the playoff histories of the New York Yankees and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

Bad choice of words but not necessarily meant in derogatory fashion. According to Webster's Collegiate Dictionary one of the definitions of fag is "to tire by strenous activity". The word was used that way for a long time..especially in England. Billy is an old guy ---words change meaning over time(ironically the word "gay" has a different meaning today then it had 50 years ago). Not a Packer fan by any stretch of the imagination but his remarks about the Valley a couple of years ago were far more disparaging than these

Why would you expect Matt to do any research into the word's origins or meaning? He's 30 - he doesn't have time while preparing for a 4 hour show to do something like investigate the story. He just gives opinions.

How's that BS590 forum coming Matt?

The forum might come back but it's not my call. Bosses don't like the few of you who write things that you know you aren't suppose to. I could care less one way or the other one it.

I'd suggest to your 'bosses' that it was a direct result of the lack of an admin on the forum which allowed the spam and bickering to get out of hand. (Despite the fact that several of us asked for more admin presence, better deletion of the spam on the forums, even offered to mod the forum ourselves - all requests went unanswered. As it stood, it was obvious you could 'care less'.) If that's what got the forum nuked, it's on your head, not ours. (Not that I really care - I left the forum long before it was deleted because you couldn't handle it. I just like busting your chops about it.)
