One day after Chiefs sideline reporter/Web columnist Bob Gretz lit up Channel 41’s Jack Harry on radio about the Priest Holmes “retirement” story, calling Harry a “lamebrain,” Gretz was back on the rampage Thursday.

According to the media blog (and a good one) www.bottomlinecom.com , Gretz said on KCMO’s Van Patrick show that Harry just “sits in his office and doesn’t go out and do anything.” Gretz also took a shot at us, suggesting that Joe Posnanski “lives in a fairy-tale world of sports,” that Jason Whitlock “just writes about himself” and that Jeffrey Flanagan “should have better things to do than write about me and (Jack Harry).”

Actually, I think Gretz has all of us confused. What he meant to say is that Jeffrey Flanagan just “sits in his office and doesn’t go out and do anything, lives in a fairy-tale world, just writes about himself, and should have better things to do, period.”

Seriously, does anyone know the source of Gretz’s misdirected anger? He won’t return my calls anymore.

He's just angry that he isn't on the Steelers' payroll.

But can you honestly claim that any of his statements about the KC media are false?

But can you honestly claim that any of his statements about the KC media are false?Seriously. There's a grain of truth in all three of those quotes.

Gretz is just angry because he doesnt have 20,000+ rep points and posts on Chiefsplanet.

I don't know who pays Gretz or how. Or why.

Gretz is the best. I wish people would stop picking on him.

Blob Gretz doesn't realize that being a media analyst of any type is no more noble than any other media analyst job.

The comment about Flannigan is funny given the subject of this piece.

All KC media is messed up. Including Gretz, IMO.

He's the sports director at KCFX.

he's works on the chiefs flagship football station...

if he doesn't support the chiefs 100% he'll get put on "the list" along with most of the rest of the media around KC.

might as well work for the chiefs

at least gretz has substance to his claims, and doesn't make accusations without investigating the truth.

and all whitlock does is pull the race card so people read his crap.
