Discussing the MSM: Some ground rules

 

There has been a lot said over the past few months regarding the mainstream media and their opinions about our favorite team.  Some people are sick of talking about the MSM, while others continue to be interested in various opinions and critique said opinions based on our own intimate knowledge of the team.  I am not here to discourage discussion of the MSM.  I actually find it quite interesting to compare opinions and realize what Chris Berman often says "We think we know, but we don't know"

However, to better serve the Mile High Report which I dearly love, I decided there should be some ground rules to any critique of the MSM.  Some of them are personal pet peeves, so please, bare with me.  I think of us as a very classy community and I want to stay that way. 

1. Let's shy away from personal attacks- Most notably, lets not refer to Bill Williamson as "Pork Chop" Some of us MHR's are a little rotund

2. Utilize the intelligent observation this blog has become known for Instead of saying that Jamie Dukes is an idiot.  Let's delve deeper.  Let's examine exactly where he is analyzing this team wrong.  Let's point out what so many have missed. 

3. Give Praise where it is warranted Like praise recently for Bill Simmons, Adam Schefter and TJ (PS, I think TJ is by far the best ESPN analyst.  He has a positive way at looking at things but also can give honest reflective opinion.)

4. Have Fun If the Broncos keep winning we get to have the last laugh.  So lets enjoy getting to prove the MSM wrong, just do it without the personal attacks. 

I know for some this post will be offensive because many people have stated before that they don't want to be told how to post on a blog.  However, I just feel that we have a standard at MHR and we should keep it that way. 

Take Care!
