I received an email from a friend and fellow TST fan that the comment I posted about RVB and the fact that I would no longer read his articles set off quite an exchange. At his urging I did go and read the exchange.
Just as I was unhappy with RVB’s constant snipes at Bradford some expressed their unhappiness with people, myself included I presume, complaining about RVB. For the record I did not intend for that comment to take over any part of the conversation. I merely was expressing my frustration and indicated what I elected as my response of choice, to no longer read his articles. Had I not been given a head’s up I would not have known about the ongoing exchange because truthfully I expect that to be the end of it and didn’t really expect any reply at all.
So let me apologize for any part I played in shifting the conversation away from sports. Next time an article appears about the sale of Rams branded underwear, the ‘other Rams site’ about the animal not the team, football players fashioned out of Legos or other similarly meaty sports related topics I will focus my attentions there and any comments will be limited to the important topic at hand. Oh wait, RVB wrote those as well.
Seriously though, I do sincerely apologize for any animosity it may have created among a few contributors here. The vast majority of the people on here are intelligent and articulate Rams’ fans which is why I come here. I would never want to be the catalyst that created any friction between anyone on this site.
That said, I make no apologies for the content of the comment. That is how I felt when I wrote it and still how I feel. I am sorry for the shit storm it created however.
