Re: No Love from the LOCAL media!

controversy sells, and objectivity sells more than blatant bias.

Team reporters are paid to highlight the positives of the team, celebrate their acheivements and maintain optimism at all turns..

If Michael made the same prediction (9-7, losing to a division rival in the playoffs) he'd be run out of Redskins Park but a reporter has no responsibility or affiliation to the team..

Mattyk should you still be setting up Q&A's will this hater?
It is not a sportswriter's job to suck up to the local team. They should be calling out why they may win or lose and back it up with some well considered insight.

I picked the Skins for 12-4 and the conference championship. If Snider sees 9-7 while pointing out that the NFC East will be tougher than last year, then he can make that point. It's valid. I don't have to agree and neither do you. This is all decided on the the field.

Re: No Love from the LOCAL media!

We can't as fans bitch and moan about the unfair reporting the Skins get on a national level and then decry someone for simply offering reasoned, but more negative than we'd like, opinions. It's called hypocrisy. At least this guy makes valid points and seems to report in a balanced way. His job is to be balanced just as it is Pasta's. All we should want is fair journalism from everyone and this guy has shown me that he is more than fair.

On top of that he has taken his free time to offer us insghts we can't get elsewhere. Those who are bemoaning him should look at the big picture and realize what a good guy he is. Rather than get mad why don't you all thank him for helping us out? I hope he never sees this junk and if he does see it I hope he realizes that 99% of us appreciate what he had done for us.

Re: No Love from the LOCAL media!

Well put FRPLG. I personally don't see how we can have the losses Mr. Snider says we'll have and still make the playoffs. But the great thing is we have the chance to ask him to explain his position. And he's not saying something ludicrous like "we continue to rotate our core players" or "major losses like Cory Raymer"

Now if we can only beat an AFC team! I know the NFC games are more important for tie-breaketrs, etc., but we need to show the AFC we can compete under Gibbs II.

But just because we don't agree with him on his prediction that doesn't make him a "bad journalist" or "hater" and we shouldn't just toss aside the great opportunity we have with his Q & A's

Re: No Love from the LOCAL media!

I would just like to see the Skins go 2-2 against the AFC this year. I read somewhere that they are 0-10 against the AFC in the last 2 1/2 years! Geez, just when we get the division thing figured out (5-1 in '05) we did not beat anyone from the other conference! If they could just go 4-2 in the division and 2-2 against the AFC and then maybe 4-2 against the rest of their NFC opponents or maybe 5-1 then you have them at 10-6 or maybe 11-5, which will make the playoffs and possibly win the division. Just win at home and then beat 3 teams on the road. Here are their road wins, Houston, N.O. and St. Louis! Go undefeated at home and beat these 3 and there you go. If you can't go undeafeated at home, then beat one of our division opponents at their place, and you stil go 10-6 or 11-5. Then start the playoffs with maybe a home game. I like our chances with this senerio!

Re: No Love from the LOCAL media!

In the recent Q&A with Snider he states he is a self admitted Snyder hater and I know the mods on this site are since the Extreme Skins take over but what I still cannot understand is why . Would you prefer the Bidwells or the Glazers here, maybe the Lauries or even good ol JJ. Reporters should report on the news not try and be the news.

I'm not sure, but are you calling the mods here "Snyder haters"? If so, that's way off base

um, do you even read this site? Snider said he wasn't fond of dan cause when he was ahving a heart attack, LDS was cracking jokes about him. how happy would you be?

that said, a reporter's job is to be objective, and if you could point out where that wasn't the case, i'd love to see it. If you could point out where the mods here are hating on danny, i'd REALLY love to see that too. Please don't toss around accusations unless you have actual proof.

You're coming off even more ignorant than some of the "Skins haters" in the media.

Re: No Love from the LOCAL media!

Seems to me this guy doesn't know what he is talking about if he has us going 9-7 and getting to the NFC Championship game.

I feel like if we can go 10-6 again that would be great. It is hard to ignore the fact the other teams have gotten better as well and until we actually see our wideouts on the field it will be tough to see how well they play together.

Re: No Love from the LOCAL media!

Don't get hung up on 9-7, I think his basic point is he thinks the Skins face a tough schedule, but once playoff time comes around they'll be peaking and can make some noise.
