    Best of luck Mike. I always saw you as someone who connected well with the fans, had good insight, and treated us with respect -- esspecially with your Q&A pieces where you addressed each writer by name. A classy guy.

    I know I really will miss Mike's assessments and opinions and wish him all the best.  What I liked about him was that if he had made a mistake and someone pointed that out to him, he would acknowledge it.  He wasn't patronizing to his readers and would always answer his questions in a respective tone even after having probably the same question 50 times in the mailbag.  Good luck in your new vocation and let's all hope that the Globe hires someone else to replace him who is at least half as good.

    Anyone saying Reiss isn't a good reporter simply has no clue what they are talking about.  Reiss is one of the best there is at what he does, and it will be a huge hit for the Globe.  Can't blame him for taking a step up in his career, even if it is with ESPN.  Fact is, ESPN is thriving and the Globe is suffering.  I for one will be reading Mike at whatever site he's on.

    Can't say we didn't see it coming.

    Wonder what the new blog will be called:

    Gridiron Gasper

    Gasper's Gaspings

    Or maybe the globe will be really original and follow suit with the Celtics and Bruins blog by announcing the "Patriots Blog"

    I think that's a big reason they're making such an effort to win some New England fans back (Patriots "team of the decade", Mike Reiss, etc,) along with hiring Sheffter (the Peter Gammons of football)... there are a lot of us that still refuse to watch that crrappy excuse for a formerly awesome sports station because they drove the hate bus right over Boston for well over a year.  I have a feeling they lost a good chunk of New England ratings with all their foolishness.

    Still no apologies for all of their stupid comments (and pathetic analysis of everything), though... man I still hate them, too.  Just writing about it makes me ill.

    It gets worse, look at the great columnists that chad finn mentioned will be a part of ESPNBoston -

    ESPN has a roster of columnists and contributors with significant Boston ties, including Bill Simmons, who writes the popular “Sports Guy’’ column and also hosts an entertaining podcast, baseball guru Peter Gammons, and NFL analyst Michael Smith.

    Those guys, along with Reiss (and Sheffters new hitting espn), it will be tough to stay away from it.  Darn, guess I better get over my grudge.  But if they put anything by trey wingo, criss carter, fat tomase, merrill hodge, wilbon, kornholio, I'm going to be sik.

    No I wouldn't Kid you.  The guy in my opinion always played it safe, he always road in the middle of the road with a slight tilt towards Patriots management.

    There's nothing wrong with that.  You have every right to love that style of writing. 

    I think he's a boring powder puff who never took a stand for or against anything (middle of the road).  That's my opinion.

    Thanks for your concern.
