  1. Anyone care to explain the Cafardo comment to those of us who haven't been following along?

  2. You know, I really don't have a problem with Cafardo wishing Pete Carroll well in his new endeavor. He doesn't cover the Seahawks' beat, afterall.

    But this is just another illustration of what has frustrated media observers for years: these guys (and ladies) are all human, and as humans, they all have their own personal likes and dislikes. Cafardo obviously likes Pete Carroll a lot from his days of covering the Pats' beat during Pete's stint has head coach. That's fine, really.

    What's not fine is for people like Cafardo, Borges, et al, to deny that their personal likes and dislikes almost always get in the way of their "unbiased" reporting, thus making their reporting anything but unbiased.

    A little honesty from these media people about their personal feelings towards certain personalities that they cover would go a long way towards restoring the industry's significantly diminished public credibility IMO.

  3. If TWITTER was a popular a year ago as it is today I might still be in Toronto. Now, I'm 4th on the BigShow Depth Chart behind Burton, LJ and Fred.
