    who is Ben Volin?

    He's all over the news stating Hern didn't fit in with the Patriot way. He was hired out of Miami in April of this year. What does he know about the Patriots locker room or the Patriot way. frankly i'm sick of him sounding like he knows it all when it comes to the Patriots. Keep sucking up Ben maybe ESPN will come calling.

    he's employed by Boston . com

    saw him on CNN doesn't look anything like his twitter advatar

    just don't like this guy he's saying stuff I don't think he can back up.  Give me the Boston regulars even if I disagree with them many times.

    In order to know what's going on, someone must be born and bred in New England?

    What has he said about the Pats' locker room or the falsehood that is the Patriot Way?

    I read a lot of his tweets.  They are about the Hernandez ordeal mostly.  I didn't see anything portraying an intricate knowledge of the Pats locker room.  He mentioned the Matt Light statement, but then again, who didn't?

    What did he tweet that has irked you so?

    (As for me going back to where I came from, deal with this, sister.  My account at BDC has gotten much use over the years.  I'll post where I damn well please.)

    You only post on the Bruins board. I am active on the music board, here, some over on your dorky fanboy run Bruins board, and a bit on the Sox board, which is somewhat annoying.

     

    So, don't lie.   Your account gets as much use as your hand in your pants.



    How does 15K posts equal not a lot of use?

    I wonder how many posts you have.  Considering you've had approximately 71 accounts banned for being such an undying deeeeeeeebag, and those 71 account last for about 10 days each, and in those 10 days, you can ring up 600 posts (and you say we have no life!), my math says you have about 42,000 posts.  #whataloser

    You can't trust a paper based in NY to be honest about NE sports, this kid probably got hired for the same reason most useless, poser writers do; nepotism.  He looks like a knob in his picture, really, are you on your phone with your best shades on or is it just a prop?

    Just to flesh out wozzy's point a little bit:

    Journalism doesn't exist anymore.

    Who is Ben Volin?

    He's you or me or some other guy who had the right contacts to get a nothing job that anyone can do at the level it is now done in a dying industry that no longer even pretends to have any kind of professional standards.

    Hear me now and believe me later: The news died the day "sources" replaced actual, verifiable attribution.

    In short, Ben Volin is nothing.

     

     

     

    Now you listen here! He's not the Messiah . . .   he's a very naughty boy!

    I agree with most of what you've said.  For sure journalism is dead.  But it's not because of "sources".  Arguably one of the biggest stories in U.S. history (Watergate) was fed largely from the source "Deep Throat".  We've been in a downward spiral ever since that time, accelerating rapidly in recent years.

    Sports journalism has declined with the general news media.  There was a time when the Boston Globe itself had a Mt. Rushmore of columnists covering the 4 major sports.  No longer.

    Part of it is economics.   The Globe is for sale again, along with "papers' across the country.  In the chase for the bottom line it's less expensive than ever before to put out a story on the internet.

     Part of it is discernable quality.   People who have busy lives have an increasingly difficult time determining whether Outlet A's story is more accurate/believable than Outlet B.  The media wouldn't be able to get away with this if they were selling widgets, because the quality would speak for itself.

    There is a mod who runs a shift here who is more Draconian than Goodell.   He/she will delete things that in no way break board rules.

    Mel Witt and I were in tears of that little doozy last week.

    Do not feed the troll. Slap and move on.



    Well, Rusty, that's just a bold faced lie.  Yet another creation of your storytelling.  I never mentioned anything about the day of the week, the month or the year.

    The rest is true.
