You're right, which is why I took my post down with my 2nd edit.
Nah, whatever man. I just take offense to having the caricature of every Michigan stereotype badgering me here. Have an upvote for whoever downvoted you.
Edit - This is without knowing what went down last night.
Well, don't let that stop you from passing judgement.
I often agree with M Man, and he often gives us very good insight into all things University of Michigan. I also enjoy the legal perspective and expertise that he brings as well. However, he could probably be less condescending, which is a trait we often ascribe to persons of similar allegiance around here.
I don't know that he should necessarily be banned for expressing his opinions, but when you get passive-aggressive with a staff member, yeah, you should expect that. But Ramzy could have gone about it more professionally (as in, sans the F word) as well.
I miss the days when we could discuss actual football with M Man. It was more fun back then.
All fair points. I'm not all that familiar with M Man's work because I don't spend very much time in the forums and barely read the comments either (i.e. if I have something I want to say, I'm blessed with a time slot on elevenwarriors dot com for that purpose - and the time I put into writing sort of eats up the time I'd spend in the forums, etc).
There are three things at play here: One is his snippy tirade in the comments of my column from last Wednesday; two is his breach of the Florida State/Winston buckshot with a continuation of that same stupid Michigan tirade which was off-topic and violated site rules; three was that this past weekend just happened to be my turn as 11W's weekend editor, which thrust me into site custodial duties, i.e. actually spending time in the forums and managing the content.
I don't know if M Man is always like that or not, but the thing is - I really don't care. If you're going to go into an Ohio State site with a Michigan helmet icon, you shouldn't act like you own the fucking place, especially toward one of the guys who literally does.
As for being professional...11W is my glorious escape from professionalism. I just can't get terribly upset over naughty words.
The stupidest way to approach the issue is to call your rival trash (literally, "trash-talking") and say that their guys are terrible and your guys deserve careful examination.
Any old sports blog could declare, "Their team's kicker is trash." The smart blogs would get into the how and why of Title IX. So I congratulate the OP in this case for at least raising a valid point with a good question. "What Would Troy..."; your first upvote immediately above, is from me.
People here dive into the Waters stuff because it's complicated and relevant to Ohio State. You make the incredibly stupid assumption that a sex offender like Brendan Gibbons, who is trash, deserves a similar forum and a fair shake on this site. You must have been eating dumbfuck sandwiches when you came up with that logic.
I'm disabling your account for awhile because you're absolutely boring as fuck, this post is passive-aggressive toward me and because go fuck yourself. Your freedom of speech is between you and the US government. You have zero rights here. Go start a blog where you can smell your own farts and determine how the public discusses topics you deem worthy.
who lets me watch as much football as I want
Except, you know, today.
Just wait until tomorrow.
10,000 bourbons to you on your wedding and may your marriage be loving, wondrous and magical.
DJ my share of the gravy goes straight to Russia to appease hackers from trying to melt our server.
You're a commenter here. I'm not. Not warning you again - the next time you get pouty about any of the content here and start pulling this bullshit in other threads, you're done.
Brendan Gibbons is trash. Michigan is trash. If you don't like reading that, get the fuck out.
Yeah, I know that and totally fumbled the story - was trying to speak historically to Brandon's hiring and said "is Michigan's president" instead of "was." I blame the NyQuil.
There seems to be some confusion...the top photo is a slide show. Click the arrows on either side of the picture and you'll see 50 photos from Saturday.

So I take it Dominoes Pizza won't ever be part of the offering at a Dubgate?
They actually donated 30-ish pizzas in 2013. It's a brave new world.
It's from Yahoo finance, M Man. It's 100% accurate. And it's part of a sourced column that's linked that you refuse to read.
Brandon's decade at Dominos was defined by overexpansion and product quality that rated dead last behind Chuck E. Fucking Cheese. He guided jack shit. Domino's is still apologizing for what went down on Brandon's watch. Its image has yet to fully recover.
I don't care if you attack me or anything I write, but for God's sake - stop being so fucking boring.
Ramzy - is there a situational bourbon to sip on while listening to this,
I did the podcast on an adult dose of NyQuil. Listening to me ramble generally requires something stronger though.
Actually he was really bad at selling pizza too.
