"...don't believe something because an "expert" is saying it. Believe it because of the evidence."
he would contribute to RCMB. ...or does he already??? BWAHAHAHAHA
you are missing nipple twister
It's not popular on here, but from experience, Rosenberg is one of the finest, most honest men I've ever met. Everyone's got their own opinion, that's what makes this business great, but I wish him the best of luck with Sports Illustrated.
Honest ???? Riiiiiiight
Rosenberg played a big part in putting a stain on Michigan by making allegations which had virtually no basis in fact. His reporting besmirched an otherwise clean program and cost a ton of money to resolve. Good riddance.
Really, I am still waiting for the just kidding part.
for him to get off Rosenberg's ball sack. Jeez.
I 100% agree. And the other day I met Satan, Hitler, Stalin and Charles Manson hanging out by he pool with him and they are also completely swell guys with an undeserved reputatation for evil. I sure wish people would give folks a second chance and not dwell on those little "indiscretions" the media makes such a big deal about.
Thanks for checking in to say goodbye, Mike. Don't forget to self-fellate on the way out.
I want to see Muppets, dancing with Kate Upton.
I want Muppets, with Kate Upton, dancing to the Hawaiian War Chant, with torches and pitchforks setting fire to piles of copies of the Detroit Free Press. In the middle of the diag.
Buh bye, you sanctimonious prick. Strongly-worded letter to follow.
Calling someone else a sanctimonious prick? Really?
What are you going to talk about now?
No, but I'm really happy about this. The violations story was horrible, but he does this on a weekly basis. Wrong info, lies, misuse of real info. Just bad writing
does this hack get a job at SI
Bye bye sum bitch
Remember when he cried to John U. Bacon about no one buying his book?
I can sympathize. Punching dolphins is a full-time job unto itself.
"I can sympathize. Punching dolphins and bludgeoning baby seals is a full-time job unto itself."
He will ascend to his maximum level of incompetence which will be to pen gotcha's on such notaries as RR in Arizona, Mike Leach, and now John L. Smith
Hey Rosenberg, how are those book sales going?
I was given this book as a gift for my constipated dog Messner. He circled it twice before settling down and relieving himself for the first time in days. We plan on picking up a case of these.
A: 100% Pure Colombian.
as Rosenberg got exactly what he wanted. Besides gettting RR and Martin, his other goal was clearly to parlay the story into a national gig. He now has that and once again it pays to be bad at your job as a journalist.
I am pos-ing you. Because you are right. Thoroughly, absolutely correct. And yet I am still happy about it. And, glad that you posted this.
now he's somebody else's problem.
And I wonder of his shit will work for a national audience. I am quietly hoping he gets barbecued.
The sad part is all of the Daily writers, AnnArbor-com writers, and other journalists congratulating him on twitter. Now they have to suck up to him in hopes of networking.
Pat Forde just tweeted he's one of the best. Lots of ass-smooching on this one.
that's too bad. i understand not wanting to shit on him, but are congrats really in order? especially considering the Daily has annihilated the Freep in covering M sports while Rosenberg's been there.
You could have gotten rid of Rosenberg all along...you've had the power right at your fingertips.
I would have preferred his resigning in disgrace and then, while leaving the offices with a box of his own belongings, his stepping in a large pile of flaming dog feces. But, you know, I'll take what I can get.
Nicole Auerbach tweeted this and I replied back with "so he can take his personal vendettas national?" needless to say, she asked me to unfollow her. But the guy has no respect from me after reading Three and Out.
Ignore that, she's actually a great writer and her tweets are interesting. She just has to suck up to Mike to not burn any professional bridges.
There is no need to argue with any other writers. I remember that I read this somewhere, that people know what a lie the story was. The michigan sports writers were all silent in the room after his allegations came out. They have a right to say whatever and no need to get in an arguement with them.
As a follow up, I saw your tweet and if they dont want me to follow them, I am sure they wont lose any sleep over it. I pretty much unfollowed everyone that said the best writer. Still following the ones that just said congrats.
Sportswriters in Michigan voted Rosenberg as the co-winner of the Michigan Sportswriter of the Year in 2010, and they voted Mark Snyder as the winner of the same award in 2011. Both awards are completely inexplicable, except as an expression of other sportwriters wanting to give a vote of confidence to the two guys who were getting the fiercest criticism of their profession, from people outside the profession. A union vote, to protect a member of their bargaining unit.
If someone somehow thought that Rosenberg's award was accorded him as an acknowledgment of his book (from a year earlier, actually), or as a nod to his increasing national stature, that might make some sense. But then Mark Snyder's winning the award was nothing short of "perverse." Because Snyder hadn't done anything except to keep plugging away as the Michigan beat writer for the Freep, and to keep surviving the debacle of his participation in the Stretchgate Fraud.
Snyder didn't publish a book, he didn't do anything unusual outside of his beat, he didn't take a stand on anything.
John U. Bacon should have been the 2011 Michigan Sportswriter of the Year, in a walk. They could have named the award after him, for all future years.
So let's just remember on this day when we say good riddance to Michael Rosenberg that Mark Snyder is still here.
There is still plenty of trash still there besides Snyder. I am really curious, are the votes public, do other writers know who they voted for. Were no other writers nominated?
I asked, if nominations had been somehow restricted to dues-paying members of the association (@$40/year). Answer: No. I asked how people were nominated. The answer was sort of loose; I forget the details. I asked if the voting or the nominations were public. Answer: No.
Basically, an informal vote of the regular sportswriting staffs at all of the newspapers in the state (mostly metro Detroit, Lansing, Grand Rapids, etc.) and a few other sports reporters.
Are their no other writers in the state that deserve this award. It's depressing that he got the job, makes me think all writers need to be political to get anywhere in this world.
I met Mitch Albom about 10 years ago in NYC in a bbq place right off Times Square. I went up to him and said Mitch great job and thanks. He looked at me like I had 2 heads. I was with a big party of friends and they all said who is that. I said he was the great Mitch Albom. I guess these guys all get big heads after they have worked for a while.
Interesting that she has since deleted her tweet to you saying that (assuming that, as it doesn't appear to be be on her timeline)
I applaud this move. Magazine stock is easier on the anus than than newspaper. And it absorbs water better.
He calls himself a journalist?? dont think so!
...on this great occasion in Detroit sports media. I am forced to assume that SI has never read anything written by Michael Rosenberg, of course. No matter, however...
Finally! Now maybe RR will be a better coach and he can win some games.
