Re: JLC vs. Cerrato takes a new twist?

I think that JLC is a trader, that loves seeing our team fail. Get him out of there and let someone else do what he does. We have all critized the Redskins, but most of us are happy when our team wins. JLC picks apart every move that the Skins make. He is a jerk.

A Note from the Sports Editor - Redskins Insider

What the editor says, well JLC still snitched. Snitches get stitches...

Re: JLC vs. Cerrato takes a new twist?

From the above article:
[The Washington Post] called the league today to confirm that Jason had not charged the Redskins with tampering. Here's what NFL spokesman Michael Signora had to say: "Jason LaCanfora called our office and said that Vinny Cerrato was talking in specifics on his radio show about the Raiders' coaching position. Jason wanted to know if that could possibly be a tampering issue. Jason has been told that there is no general prohibition against publicly talking about another team's players or staff. It routinely occurs throughout the league."

That sure sounds like someone trying to cause an issue to me, and not a reporter doing an investigation. And the league's response was just as telling.

JLC has lost his credibility, and unless they take some action against him, as far as I'm concerned, The Washington Post has lost theirs too.

Re: JLC vs. Cerrato takes a new twist?

first, bill polian (colts GM) has had a 1 hour weekly show, so the GM/radio thing isn't ground breaking or new, second, can't they BOTH stop acting like they're five years old. dragging this out on air isn't all that much better than the initial phone call, though i don't really have details (or care) about either.

and absolutely do not put JLC on the caps. el-bashir does a great job and that world is drama free from a beat perspective. give JLC united. soccer sucks, but he likes it, so there you go.

What I think is funny is how much Larry Michale's hates him. On Mchael's comcast show he does the source-meter thing where it basically is a shot directly at JLC for using uncited sources all the time. It is a feature specifically designed for JLC and JLC only. It is quite alarming that Larry would do it which makes it pretty clear how much he disrespects JLC.
Dude I saw the TV brodcast of that show. Larry stood up and straight called out LaConfora. It looked like If JLC was in the room there would have been some fists flying. I couldnt believe it.

Re: JLC vs. Cerrato takes a new twist?

This is ridiculous, JLC f'ed up no matter what. I mean one thing is to criticize your team, but another thing is to do this. What was he hoping to get out of this, other than either cause embarrassment to the team or even worst cause them to get into trouble. After reading that other GMs have radio shows (especially the likes of Pollian and the Pats GM, you know successful GMs), this has become a non-issue to me. And the fact that JLC made it an issue adds to our questioning of his motivations. I'm done with JLC, besides I can get my Redskins news from other places (like thewarpath.net )

Re: JLC vs. Cerrato takes a new twist?

the only reason i don't understand vinny having a show is cause he really doesn't seem like he'd be very good at it, or that he'd really have enough to talk about that zorn/cp/cooley/the 980 crew/etc didn't already tread into the ground. we can wait and see on that though...

And since when do you have to be good to have a radio/tv show? LOL.

try and keep an open mind and not insult those who would disagree with you

as for JLC's antics. They mirror a 7 yr olds.

Re: JLC vs. Cerrato takes a new twist?

That seems like a rule that JLC should know pretty well as a beat reporter for an NFL team. I don't know that I can fault him entirely for doing the research, though his past seems to indicate that there certainly was hope on his part to find indiscretion, but he should have known that is not tampering to begin with. I personally think it's a bit more disconcerting that he doesn't know some NFL basics.

By the way, did anyone see what JLC was wearing during Zorn's press conference yesterday? It was like Radar meets LL Cool J

Re: JLC vs. Cerrato takes a new twist?

I don't live in the area so I don't watch the shows but I used to read JLC's blog. I grew up reading the Post and know I still check it out online. The first thing JLC should have learned is don't piss on the team you are covering. Most of the guys covering the Panthers here are from other parts of the country and like other teams. However, they are bright enough to report on the team from a "homer" perspective. JLC isn't covering the war or doing investigative reports on corrupt politicians. He's covering a sports team where 90% of his readership are fans of the team. He should either cover a different team that he doesn't hate, or apologize publicly to the team and fans and wise up.

I agree. And thats not to say that he should only post "fluff" articles for the Skins, I don't want that shit either. Just report on the TEAM. His personal issues with the front office should be checked at the door, along with his ego.
