    "the journalist": the ultracrepidarian

    I am not referring to Murray Kinsella with that expression.

    I know who you're talking about, I'm just wondering what your real beef is. It's not about the quality of his writing, that's for sure.

    I think anyone who plays any sport deserves some respect for the amount of training and intensity. Even more so anyone who plays a contact sport. You generally don't get paid a lot unless - so they sacrifices deserve some respect. If you treat people with very little respect to make some money, I think you deserve to be called out on it.

    I think you're being bit harsh and reading too much into what some/this journo in particular are writing.
    And you've avoided some of my earlier questions in the thread...
