this is in regards to the overuse of humor, in most cases bad attempts at humor by too many of the typical blog crowd. IMO instead of thoughtful insight on the performance of our maize and blue athletes it has become either drug and alcohol induced one liners that serve no purpose other than a pulpit to show just how much more you know or don't care about each and every subject.
"I type, therefore I can". this is the attitude displayed over and over and it has gotten to the point where the true purpose of a sports blog,sharing opinions and insight, no matter how feeble, misinformed,or just out and out wrong, they may be, has been put aside in favor of snide,mean,smart-ass remarks. it at most times shows a lynch mob, pile on mentality.
some of us would like to be able to find the info and opinions without sorting through this crap that has become the norm on this blog and most others like it.
the response to this will no doubt be more of the same and I'll be taking my share of "u dont like it, don't read it," but I'm sure that eventually Brian will see that the sharing of info, insight and opinion far outweighs the overuse of one-liners and insults.
the constant one-line putdowns of those of us who have the balls to voice an opinion serve no purpose other than waste the time of contributors and send them elsewhere. to disagree is expected in a forum like this but at least have the balls to give give your own spin on things and not depend on overused smartass,snide and I'm smarter than u remarks.
