Re: Does the Post's Jason La Canfora Hate the Skins?

JLC is just another worm trying to get a story at any cost. He'd sell his soul for a penny to get a story.

I personally don't give any credibility to him or any of those TRASH writers. I have my own opinions about my team, mostly based on facts. I don't pay any attention to the bullshit that JLC or any other tard writes about my team!

Well, I wouldn't say he doesn't have credibiltiy; that would definitely be going over board. And to be honest, he is sort of between a rock and hard place, professionally speaking. He's employed by the Post (isn't he?), yet he's supposed to be unbiased in his reporting from a fan perspective.

Personally, I don't read his stuff simply because I get 90% of what I need here.

Have you tried to read his blog posts? Jeeze, he kant spel an it vary hard too reed. Isn't JLC from "Balmer" anyway and a closet Ravens fan? Maybe that would explain some of his negativity towards the 'Skins. He not too long ago compared The Raven's and 'Skins front offices and said something to the effect that the Ravens FO was a much better run organization. No surprise there I guess. Anyway, I do share some of his thoughts on how the Redskins are managed overall and even though I live and die by how the 'Skins perform every season, they deserve criticism where it is due.

I'm going to give respect were respect is due here and the Ravens are a very efficiently ran. They are always in contention.

Re: Does the Post's Jason La Canfora Hate the Skins?

JLC wrote: "The compensation is steep -- on par with what teams have given up for veteran former Pro Bowl quarterbacks in recent years such as Steve McNair and Trent Green -- and it bucked Gibbs's recent trend of trying to retain as many draft picks as possible. Kendall had been signed through 2009 -- with a base salary of $2 million in 2008 and $2.4 million in 2009 -- but sources said he signed a new two-year deal with Washington, worth $2.7 million this season and $2.3 million in 2008..."

washingtonpost.com

I'm no expert, and not as knowledgeable as other posters here, but Kendall's compensation does not sound "steep" considering he will be protecting our QB's ass. I'll disagree w/ JLC on this point.

Didn't he just say the other day the Skins should trade a 5th rounder for Kendall?? Now the price is steep?

He's obviously letting personal feelings find their way into his blog. It's unfortunate that someone in such a position can't be more professional. When Coach Gibbs made his statement, I think he was circling the wagons. Maybe trying to give a little us vs. them mentality to his group. That's the way I choose to look at it and I think JLC would be better off looking at it that way. He's not going to win any spitting contests with Coach Gibbs.

He can say what he wants but his tone has definitely changed recently. I'm frankly a little disappointed in him.

ES likes to bang heads with just about everyone in the media. Nothing new there.

JLC also has a tendency to ermm make stuff up...ayone else remeber hearing anything other than what JLC was spouting about Denver looking to trade Bly before his contract got redone ...it was all JLC speculation, not even Blys agent knew anything about it . Also does anyone know who he is talking to when he quotes NFL officials ? Does that include parking attendents...janitors... who ?...and tell me what professional journalist gets into slanging matches in the media with guys off a message board ?

JLC is good on occasion but there are better sources ...one other thing that struck me and put the final nail in the coffin for me is as an english man i hat e, HATE, soccer it is a game for girls, homosexuals and homosexuals who want to be girls ...ahem....and anyway Jason is a BIG MLS fan gushing over the appearance of David Beckham for Galaxy in Washington this past week ....shesh
I could tell, you write like an English prick... Spend a few minutes out on the pitch with me and I'll show you a game for girls... actually spend a few minutes on the pitch with my little sister and she'll knock you on your arse so hard you'll become a huge soccer fan like JLC. I always found people who share your opinion about soccer have no eye foot coordination, you probably have two left feet and were the last one picked in PE. You probaly used to strike out in kickball... Chump

Dude, you really brought it in JLC's RI blog! Bravo mate! I wish Glenn Brenner were here to make a comment. Miss that dude.

Glenn Brenner was by far the best. Granted, I was very young when he passed, but I remember him very much. He was a good guy (and funny as hell).

a) Most of the gripes expressed here come from comments posted on the Redskins Insider blog, which is where I believe he has more latitude to express his own point of view.

b) The Skins deserve to be criticized when they do dumb stuff and they do dumb stuff a lot. I love the Skins, but I do get sick of people in this town that see them as incapable of doing anything stupid or wrong. It's refreshing to me have a somewhat critical eye cast upon them and that view expressed in the local media.

c) Again, I love Gibbs, but it was a bad move by him to go after JLC at a presser. It is actions like this that reinforce the Skins as being vindictive.
Good post RYF. But I agree with those who've noticed a nasty tone lately, and no doubt, Gibbs personal call-out didn't help. JLac obviously has a number of "NFL sources" who give him a very different line from what the skins say (didn't he cover the Ravens?). So he says they need a real LG, he gets smacked, then they DO get an LG, and Gibbs says "were just making the team stronger, no big deal, yatta, yatta." So there's obviously animosity. But I don't think it's Sally Jenkins type negligence--JLac works hard and his blog is generally very good, and one of the best sources of skins info, IMO.
