Anyone who starts another thread with an article written by Nick Athan...seriously this guy spews crap and I could care less to read it, we have already established his takes are complete :BS: and I think it clutters the front page with crap ...poll forthcoming....or start a Athan forum where those that :whackit: on his articles can go :harumph:

In all seriousness, just ignore it. People have this compulsive disorder to constantly keep the front page tidy. Who cares? Once you start banning people, especially stuff that isn't hurting anyone, then you are creating an atmosphere of censorship. I believe it is the overall lack of censorship and the freedom of expression that makes this place as popular as it is. You mess with that and you're making the same mistake that coke did. Don't mess with the formula for success.

I really have no idea if DC was calling you out, I can understand your frustration if that is true.

However, clearly you have not been reading the constant bullshit that Athan constantly spews and people feel obligated to post for some strange reason. What he say will happen has never come true to my recollection, so how you compare him to real writers I am not sure.

It's pretty clear that C Mac just doesn't get it.


Whitlock writes opinion. Rufus writes opinion.

Nick Athan makes statements as fact. You don't see Whitlock writing an article saying "the deal is done with Ty Law, we're just waiting to anounce it". Athan pretends to know something no one else knows, and passes it of as fact. He just flat out lies. And he does it under the guise of journalism.

This isn't a guy that some posters just don't agree with. It's not a guy that occasionally makes a factual error in his articles. He has no credibility, whatsoever. Figure it out. The fact that this poll is suggesting a ban by a large margin right now should be enough to give you the hint.

I voted no because I think his articles are worth a good laugh. I would be in favor of having "Athan" become "Liar" as a filter though. WPI or Warpaint Illustrated could become Random BS Illustrated or such as well.

Jason Whitlock- "Peterson doesnt care about winning, just filling the seats". Its an opinion yes, but its also a slanderous lie designed to stir controversy for his behalf. So you are suggesting that lies should be excused as long as they are expressed through an opinion?
Nick Athan - "the deal is done with Trotter, we're just waiting to anounce it". Its a lie that perhaps was based on opinion, but I also heard two reporters from ESPN state the same thing. So I'm not trying to excuse anyone from lying, nor do I want to promote someone who makes a habit of it. If someone makes a special Athon warning icon I have no issue with that, all I'm trying to say is that a ban on someone who perhaps lies more than the other lies, would be simply be hypocritical.

If Athan is literally making up stuff and not just jumping to conclusions, he's tabloid writer material. I also think that some of the things said and written by "legitimate journalist's" are also of tabloid quality. Of the few articles I read from Athan, I could sense he appeared to be reaching, but I use discernment in everything I read. So again, I agree that such tabloidic writers should be noted, but hey I get a chuckle everytime I wait in line at the grocery store.
