In response to southpaw777's comment:
I had no issue with PP6 personally, except for a couple things.
first...I didnt think WMB would play, or the team would let him play with broken ribs. I was wrong. But you got very offended that we even doubted you. I try to show everyone here respect. If I question them or disagree, I still show them respect and keep things civil. I think most here would agree with that. I might get a little tongue and cheek, but its all in fun. Oh, and I NEVER called you a liar. Theres a difference in questioning someone and calling them an out and out liar. If someone fires back ay me like you did, depending on my mood, I might fire back. As you noticed though, I was the one who stopped and just walked away while you were still slinging dirt.. You call amp an idiot. Why? did he call you names? Why go there? I just proves what I said is true. You threw a blanket over this forum and said we all think were right all the time and can never admit when we are wrong, all because we doubted something that WAS very questionable. Instead of letting it lie, you pushed the issue because you wanted us to know where we heard it first, not to protect him. Please...
2nd...I was a producer of a couple different sports talk shows in Florida, working for about 15 years. Ive been involved in over 1000 interviews, from rookie players, GM's, play by play guys, and HOF'ers from all sports. Also had a blog for a while, but stopped because I didnt have the time. Will shouldnt have told you what he did, but I think Im safe to assume he told you in confidence. Yet you couldnt wait to run out and tell people so you could break the story first. You said it when you posted it here. Ive been told many things by men and women weve interviewed that were said off the record, and kept it off the record. This is how you build a relationship and gain a lot of respect within the industry and with the people who trusted in you to keep it quiet. It leads to more interviews, exclusives and other special perks. I wasnt about to risk all that. Those business relationships built up were worth more than "leaking" something for minimal personal gain or the title of being the first to break the story. IMO, You messed up BIG TIME because believe me, your name and blog will probably be taboo within the Sox organization and with real journalists in New England.
Now, you can attack me and call me a liar or whatever else you want for stating my opinions and my side of the story. Im not going there with you. I didnt make it personal, but when people here doubted you, you took it personal and began lashing out at posters because they actually had the nerve to question you. Oh, you probably got your account deleted for posting things from and promoting your blog here. I saw a couple posters warn you about that as well, but you kept doing it. Well, I wish you luck trying to get any more inside info for your blog.
Here is the issue. You are now defending amp when he called me sick. I call him a name back and I am wrong. See how you glossed over who started it? It is the same way you glossed over what you said when I first posted on here about it. I defended myself, you said I had thin skin and then you complained because I was attacking you. Pretty funny
Listen. It was The way you acted on here after folks doubted you. What Im saying is that there was no need to defend yourself. Personally, I would have just said OK, whatever, and let it be because I knew it was true... Folks here would have admitted they were wrong when the story broke and some look at you in a different light. Listen, I dont know you personally and Im sure your a good guy and a true sox fan. If I said anything to offend you then I apologize. Lets just move on...
