I get your point SMG, but I have to agree with enigma that being cerebral and playing in the verbal gutter are not mutually exclusive. As a matter of fact, I look at it as a balancing act. I never want to come off as too egg-headed or too stupid...so I always try to give people a little taste of both.Originally Posted by Shawn
I understand the meaning of the term "pillow-biter" (unfortunately I do now), but not enough to know if it's an offensive slur to anyone who smokes the occasional pole. I can definitely see where it's a slam (literally, I guess) on a guy's masculinity, but you need to remember that those types of digs are inherently going to involve behaviors associated with women, boys, queers, and whimps. If a term is largely considered an inflammatory and derogatory way to refer to group of people, then you have a very valid point shawn. Just remember that not all references to homosexual or even feminine attributes should be interpreted as a negative slur. It's just the ultimate kick in the crotch for a guy to be ascribed less than manly qualities...and it's one of my favorite ways to bust my friends' balls.

He's ugly, he stinks, his mouth stinks, his breath stinks, and basically his soul stinks, too.

Wow. I actually never saw the enlarged text above.Originally Posted by Flasteel
As far as I know, SMG is married with kids and hetero. Therefore I wasn't using any derogatory terms towards people of different sexual orientation, nor did I intend to.
Just wanted to clarify that, as I hadn't even noticed it.

Dutchy-poo is not a "Steelers reporter". He just simply comments and states his opinions which is no different than what many folks do on the board. There are other folks on here with a much greater knowledge (Oveido for one). He posts comments at a two-bit publication with the circulation less than that of your local community weekly flier tossed-out into the driveway over the weekends, and re-hashes the same on his small time radio show, regardless however "vaunted" reaches all of the 500 listeners within the 2-mile radius of the station unless they are on-line. He does not have the press credentials to get into anything of any relevence on property in Pgh. Thus, his rhetoric is nothing more than fodder for the weak-minded... Why do I say this?... It is because he is a pompous ass that thinks he's God's gift to the sports world when he is nothing more than a reject and a joke from Masontown Pa. ... Followers are sorta like the sheep that are easily "hearded" into whatever he wishes.... So very sad.
God, this thread has been some great cheap entertainment... Sure hope this post isn't deleted... LoL!
.... Anyway, I really don't care... Just a "drive-by" posting to stir the thought process.... LoL!

I have no idea about the circulation of the paper he writes for but I know he interviewed Ben and Whisenhunt on his show. It's hard for me to believe they would have done that for a radio show with a 2 mile radius...but I guess stranger things have happened. Either way I guess it doesn't matter.Originally Posted by NKySteeler
I know nothing about Dutch's setup, but there are a couple of Bengals fans that run a message board similar to his one that have gotten dozens of Bengal and ex-Bengal players on their "radio" show. Which is basically just boardcasted online. They do it weekly and somehow keep getting guests on. I see the guy just sends messages via twitter to players and they agree to come on the show.Originally Posted by Shawn
Apparently it's easier than it seems...
That is quite possible. I don't believe Ben grants alot of local interviews so it's unusual for him. But, maybe he liked the stroking...who knows. Either way...I thought it was cool. Even when we disagree I enjoy reading his thoughts. I think if he had a better delivery and a thicker skin he would have thrived here. Guess he will either live, learn and better himself...or he will find himself banned on every Steeler site on the net.
You should have specified EGO-stroking. Because I'm sure such a sentence could be misconstrued to be stroking of another variety.Originally Posted by Shawn
