BA Bashing soapbox

dawgfantipdawgfantip Posts: 217 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

I am going to soapbox on something so I apologize beforehand. This is not to everyone just a few people who I wont name.

@DawgNationDaily does his job. I hear people griping about how he spins things. Do people not realize he is performing his role. I for one appreciate it. We have

1. @JeffSentell who's job is to tell the recruits story. Yeah he comes from a uga perspective but his first job is to tell recruits stories.

2. @MikeGriffith is a guy who has been all over covering college football and his job is to tell uga stories from a national perspective.

3. @DawgNationDaily who's job is to discuss uga football from a fans perspective. Yes he highlights the good, and puts a positive spin on the bad. IT'S HIS JOB!, and he does it very well imo.

The guys at dawgnation imo do their jobs well. If your not happy with the coverage there are plenty more options out there.

    I don't mind BA's spin and I have learned to take his football prognostications with a large grain of salt. Back a few years when he oft proclaimed that UF's offensive line was so poor it would lead to their demise, and it didn't...I realized much of what he said was simple gator hate and wishful thinking. No problem there once I understood that.

    I rarely read any of the articles here but no matter whether you agree or disagrree you should be respectful. However todays culture is messed up. In a lot of cases if you disagree you are a hater or basher. There is hardly any room for civil discussion without the person who is accused of bashing being bashed simply because they disagree. Every once in a while i will read an article but i usually dont because i usually disagree with it.. But i hardly ever then post about it. As long as someone is not name calling someone disagreement should be fine.

    I think it stemmed from a poster that popped out of nowhere and his first 2 (only) post were bashing BA. He hasn't posted since.

    also you posted before and there was a lot of growing In between.

    I think that term is "troll" instead of poster..but I could be wrong.

    There are many types of fans and journalists. BA is an unapologetic Dawg fan who writes and speaks to UGA fans. He interviews interesting people and he makes a lot of great points. But, he’s a Georgia fan, not a guy pretending to be disinterested—WYSIWYG. He plays an important role in my info gathering process. If I want a skeptical/negative view the options are abundant.

    I have often brought up an interview from ‘17 where Kirby was asked if the Dawgs were “there” as far as being able to compete with the Bamas of the CFB world. Kirby was blunt. He said, no, we just didn’t have the athletes to compete with Bama. I was surprised he said it. Well, Kirby ended up being wrong. The team continued to improve that year and we went to the wire with Bama. Saban admitted after the game that we were very competitive. My point is that even the coaches don’t know exactly what they have ahead of the season. Journalists and fans know even less than the coaches. I take everything predictive with a grain of salt. DND makes bad calls from time to time, but so do the coaches and the “disinterested” media.

    Always remember to polish the apple before giving it to your teacher. Also don't assume your teacher prefers apples to say a nice bottle of scotch, put some thought into it.

    I enjoy @DawgNationDaily and I like those that report for us. I especially like @Mike1975 because he tells it like it is. If you want sugarcoating read a Martha Stewart article. @JeffSentell does a great job with recruiting and normally gives us more info than we deserve.

    However, nothing is perfect and to point something out isn't always bashing. So, to that point, I would like to mention something that drives me crazy. BA asking a questions on the podcast. He can't just ask "What is Gilbert going to bring to the offense". Nope, it would go a little something like this: So about Arik Gilbert, you know I have always been a fan of his since he was in high school. I really wanted him to commit to us initially. When he didn't I really felt blue. You know that blue is one of his high school colors, unlike mine high school colors which were unfortunately orange and white. And you know orange is a really offensive color. Speaking of offense what is Gilbert going to bring to UGA's offense this year?

    Again, just one man's opinion.
