I’m sorry to see this announcement at Dawgbone.
Dawgbone is taking an indefinite hiatus from the Internet. We don’t know what the future will be for the site. Thank you all for your interest the last 5 1/2 years.
As a resource/research tool and as a source of traffic to this site, it’ll sorely be missed by me. I can barely imagine how much work it took to maintain, so it’s not a surprise to see a need for some time out. Whether it’s a temporary or permanent break, I just want to say thanks.
On the other hand, I’m not sure exactly what to say about some poo flung in David Hale’s direction. For daring to have an opinion about how Kiffin’s and Richt’s recruiting approaches differ – a well written one, mind you – David drew the following comment from someone named Rabulsi, apparently a Rivals recruiting blogger who got his knickers twisted by it.
… No mention of how the papers are a bit dubious a lot of the time nor how they wallow in bad news. Also I didn’t see one guy from any newspaper out at the camps that I was at Saturday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, etc. Kipp was at a different 7-on-7 camp so we could cover two camps. But I guess watching the recruits work out and compete is not as valid as sitting behind the computer watching Cheers and then saying “Hey, they were wrong about Mudcat. They must be dubious.”
I know. Picky. Very Picky. I know- not even remotely the point of his article. But just the flippant brush-offs get a bit tiresome after a while. And just like any minority, one gets tired of repeated put-downs, especially when the offender doesn’t even realize they are going it.
Might as well have said “You people…”
Never mind that this guy is guilty of painting with the exact broad brush he accuses Hale of wielding – “just like any minority”? Are you kidding me?
I know we live in a society where victimization has almost been raised to an art form, but damn, that’s just obnoxious. Congrats, Mr. Nabulsi, for posting the most ridiculous comment in the blogosphere this year. That it’s by someone writing for Georgia fans makes it even more embarrassing. Hale treated you with far more respect than that comment merited.
