Why waste the keystrokes to say you didn't read something because it was too long? Pointless

The battle against fatuousness is never pointless.

You can't reverse the growth he's already exhibited but you can get his pituitary back under control & keep him from adding another foot or more. If things continue unchecked it's very possible he won't live long enough to have that shot at the NBA.

Agreed. Hopefully someone will help his family get access to a doctor who specializes in growth disorders so they can get him treatment to slow down or stop his growth.

If you think to yourself...

I really wish it was still socially acceptable to wear brimmed hats in public, like in the article picture.

...you might be a hipster.

Seriously though, real hats have been making a come back in certain circles.

I think you totally missed the point.

in the OP, I say its FREE because to have expectations for quality and being rude about it is absolutely ridiculous. Having issue with DJ because he isn't up to your standards on a FREE site that you clicked on is the fault of the visitor. Not the fault of the author.

And seriously, Ohio State games aren't free

I didn't miss your point, I disagree with it.

Ohio State games (on over the air broadcasts) are every bit as free as this website...which is to say neither is free at all. Whenever you, your parents or your grandparents were watching Walter Cronkite on CBS in the days before cable they were paying just as much to listen to his pontifications as you are to read DJs. Eleven Warriors utilizes the exact same business model as the days of network television. Just because you aren't paying the bills, doesn't mean there aren't bills (and paychecks) being paid. 11W is no more free than CBS was.

Ultimately my biggest problem with your argument is that it is more dismissive of DJ and his contributions than the harshest critic could ever be. What it comes down to is that you are saying his work is beneath criticism because it offers little or no value.

Granted, I had a blog before it was called a blog — RIP The-Rooster dot com —

I hear it was the most electrifying site on the internet.

FUCKING FREE BLOG SITE

You keep screaming that as if it means something.

D.J. is an employee of Eleven Warriors LLC.

When your wife/child/creepy neighbor sitting on your couch makes a critical comment while watching an Ohio State game on ABC do you jump up and start ranting "FREE TV! IT'S FREE TV!" ?

Eleven Warriors isn't a couple of dudes talking about their day on a homemade WordPress/Blogger site. It's a for profit company that supports itself through advertising sales and DJ is a professional writing for a paycheck. He's not providing his time for free out of the goodness of his heart.

If DJ's writing generates controversy then he's doing his job correctly. Getting under people's skin & creating debate is a hell of a lot better than the alternatives.
