What does he do for a living? Phobia says the websites won't support him. Does he have any education? Where did he go to school? What degrees does he hold? Where does he live? What are his favorite sports teams? Anything else you might know about him.

Here goes...Nick Athan was a reporter for WHB 810am several years ago. I believe he was shit canned by Kevin Keitzman for running a false story on the Royals or something. At any rate, I gave him a working audition at the now defunct NFLScoop.com and he did ok and reported straight stories until I caught wind of a couple of doozies he posted to the site in the middle of the night. Thankfully my right hand man, The Bad Guy, saw them and deleted them before they got us in trouble. Nick tries real hard but he should stop trying to be a scoop-breaker and just report the news.

He runs the story that AS will be HC at Detroit, possibly as early as Monday. Here it is Tuesday, still no proof that it is true, and he starts a thread linking to another story, but this one is for premium members only. I see no reason to pay for his information. If his free stuff isnt reliable, who says his pay info is.

FWIW, Al Saunders will likely be named the HC in Detroit. GM Matt Millen needs to interview minorities to meet the NFL's Johnny Cochran rule. I'm still trying to confirm this but a buddy of mine in Detroit stated that Millen did a phone interview with Saunders on SUNDAY night. This info is coming from a lot sources not named Nick Athan.

Allow me to shed some more light on INTERNET journalism. Anyone can do the job but very few can deliver the goods. I personally think that Phil will get Nick straightened out over time. It's not a quick fix; it's a methodical process. If Nick continues dishing out crap then Phil and the powers that be will be forced to pull the plug on him one day. It's that simple. Headlines drive people to the site...quality content keeps them on the site.

No, it wouldn't be safe because AS is currently linked to the openings in Houston, Detroit, and Minnesota by multiple media sources. I'd imagine he'll also be linked to Oakland sometime tomorrow. But so far as I know no other teams have expressed an interest in the guy.

Even if the rumors are false they are getting free advertising.There's the crux of it. Throw enough darts at the dartboard, and eventually you'll hit some bullseyes. Athan has been throwing handfuls of darts for years now, and it's finally gotten him the publicity he was seeking.

People hear WPI mentioned as a source, go check out the site, and believe they are legit. Then they go to all the other boards telling us about how Hartwell will be signed within 24 hours or some stupid shit.

Lucky for Nick there's no accountability for what he passes off as news and insider info.

Yeah that one lady went to jail for not releasing her source, but that involved the outing of one of our undercover CIA agents...

We're talking WPI and the future of an offensive coordinator in the NFL.

All I meant, was its no surprise to hear that AS is being looked at by other teams in the NFL, not very many people would expect him to remain an OC for the Chiefs after our offensive success and the retirement of our head coach.

I do see the difference. And I should hope that AS is a candidate in Detroit,he is one of the top candidates out there. I am sure he will interview with 5-6 teams, maybe more, and will land a HC job somewhere. I hope it is in KC. But Nicks article made it sound like a lot more than just a candidate, and that all that was left was for the paperwork to be signed. If that comes true, god help AS, because he wont get any help from his GM. Detroit is career suicide as long as Matt Millen is there. Mariucci, a SB winning coach is not a popular candidate now because of Millen. For Detroit to land a top coach with that track record seems very unlikely, but I guess stranger things have happened.

You're absolutely right. But he also left quite a bit of wiggle room in those statements. Additionally, it's frick'n TUESDAY. If Al Saunders doesn't have a head coaching job by Feb 6th, you have every right to bitch about Nick's irresponsible journalism. But so far he's not wrong yet.

OOPS. I guess I screwed up about Mooch. I thought he did win a SB in SF. I guess I was thinking of Seifert. Regardless, Mooch did do well in SF, he screwed up taking the job in Detroit, and I think most of the candidates out there see that. I just cant see them getting a top notch coach, and doing it so quickly at that.

That's one scenario.

The only other that I can think of is that Herm is Option A and Saunders is the "contingency plan"...

There was a Nick Athan sighting on the Spot last night. Who ever the host(ess) was, a lot of fawning and supposition going on in that studio.
Nothing revealing, just a promo for WPI. That must be where he wants to "break" the real stories.

Pardon the ignorance, but what is WPI?

You're absolutely right. But he also left quite a bit of wiggle room in those statements.

And that's the problem I have with Athan. He reports just ambiguously enough to either claim vindication or deniability. "AL SAUNDERS WILL BE THE NEXT COACH OF THE DETROIT LIONS, AND SOON
if the stars line up and you don't hold me to the definition of 'soon' "

If he's got the story, go with it: Sources confirm that Saunders will be the next coach of the Lions.

If it's not that solid, say: According to sources, Al Saunders is the leading candidate in Detroit.

And if he can't tell the difference, he shouldn't be reporting.

That second one gives you quality information and leaves plenty of wiggle room without promising anything. Saying he could be hired as soon as Monday makes it sound a lot more certain than it is. It's hyperbolic and misleads people.

If Nick has decent sources, good for him. But he's got to use them responsibly. He steals too many bases with his writing.

FWIW, having a press pass does not make your information credible, as proven by the misses that have come from NA.

You put to much stock into a person that has no legitimate reason for being where he is. Kloster is the same as all of you that post on this website, he is a fan. Nothing more nothing less. It's just that he has found an outlet for his 15 minutes of exposure.

Saunders (http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/blog/index?name=clayton_john#20060103)

Chiefs offensive coordinator Al Saunders was the NFL's hottest coaching candidate on Tuesday. He spent five hours Monday interviewing for the Chiefs' job. He left Tuesday morning for an interview with the Vikings and he will go to Houston for the Texans' opening. He was contacted by the Lions, who want to interview him later this week. All of this should lead to him getting the Chiefs' job. Saunders has been with team president Carl Peterson longer than all but a handful of employees. Saunders was there with Marty Schottenheimer and spent the past five years as Dick Vermeil's offensive coordinator, leaving only for a short stint when Vermeil was head coach in St. Louis. With Gregg Williams pulling his name out of the head coaching mix by staying in Washington, Saunders seems to be a better option than Herman Edwards because there isn't any draft choice compensation involved.

No one is going to leave CP for WPI, so his "pimping" poses no threat. It just allows us to discredit that site as the sham that it is.

On the flip side, people don't like you. The better question is why we allow your infantile act to go on.

I read there for two days after Phil moved over there. One 'mod' defected to Nepa--that pretty much sums up a lot right there.

if the stars line up and you don't hold me to the definition of 'soon' "

If he's got the story, go with it: Sources confirm that Saunders will be the next coach of the Lions.

If it's not that solid, say: According to sources, Al Saunders is the leading candidate in Detroit.

And if he can't tell the difference, he shouldn't be reporting.

That second one gives you quality information and leaves plenty of wiggle room without promising anything. Saying he could be hired as soon as Monday makes it sound a lot more certain than it is. It's hyperbolic and misleads people.
Or,
If Nick has decent sources, good for him. But he's got to use them responsibly. He steals too many bases with his writing.

Got to agree with that.

It's kind of like seeing a politician in an interview, where someone asks them some tough questions and they issue heavily qualified answers over and over. 20 minutes later, you've watched a long conversation and know in the broadest terms what they think, but it was all said in such lawyer-speak that you can't technically hold them to anything.

What I personally took from the blurb was that (a) Saunders was the leading candidate and that (b) he will accept the job. "Soon" is subjective, but I wouldn't expect that to be more than... perhaps a week. In 2 or 3 weeks, probably most of these coaching jobs will be filled, so within 1 week would qualify as "soon" I think.

We'll see what happens. I can't imagine the high fiving that will happen if Nick is wrong again though.

How about a little better spelling/grammer check for WI articles. I swear WI articles are absolutely terrible about that..... I laugh to myself every time I see the equivalent of 8th grade spelling and grammer in an article before being asked to drop $80 for premium content.......

Just sayin............

Speaking of Proctor, I was gone for a while...did we get another Proctor sighting after Marty choked, yet again, and did we get our 95 sentences that he didnt finish last year?

Yeah, he's been back a couple of times.

Do a search; he's even started a couple of threads.....heh.

That's something I'm working on. They edit heavily for the magazine but for some reason don't feel it's as important for the web articles. I couldn't disagree more. But I'm doing what I can with limited resources without completely alienating everybody over there. It takes time. Thanks for the feedback.

I've mostly been lurking, but I've noticed some improvement. Seriously.

if Phobia,Gochiefs,Zack work over there and post here .... cool ... but i don't wanna hear about it everyday.
If I were starting the threads, I could understand that sentiment. But it's the userbase over here that appears to be interested. There's been 3 threads about it in the past 2 days.

BTW, my inside sources tell me that the next Chiefs head coach will be either Al Saunders or Herm Edwards. Bank on it.
Ok, it wouldn't kill this thread to have a tidbit of originality in the humor department.

Cabbaging off your neighbor's cable feed doesn't count.
And just because it's in the basic package doesn't mean it's free, unless you pay nothing for cable legitimately.
Effing buzzkill.
Mother Effer, nothing kills a little levity like explaining it's open and obvious import to some slopebrow ad infinitum.
You must have missed the post where Parker asked us to quit bitch slapping the moron. Oh, well, keep it up. You're doing a great job.

Why should it? The whole damn thing is re-hashed crap from previous threads, anyway.

I asked him to cool it as well, and he did.

Stop poking the dog carcass. It stinks and all it does is stir up the flies.

Anyone who trusts that Athan's fabrications are all in the past is a god-damned moron. These are the same people that take their girlfriend back after she let the hockey team run a train on her, because she promised she'd never cheat again.

I think one reason Athan hooked up with you is hoping your credibility would rub off on him. But it works the other way too. If you play in the mud, you get mud on you.

That's true. I need to exercise caution, certainly. This is a delicate situation.

I'm done defending Nick. He's made his bed, some of it justifiably and some is unfair. I'm not changing anyone's opinion of him and it took me a while to comprehend that. I need to look out for my own name, develop my own sources, and report my own news. Which is what I intend to do. I don't want to repeat his mistakes.

If they're rubbing each other off and "playing in the mud" they really need to take their discussion elsewhere. This isn't GayPlanet... despite Kotter's best efforts over the years.
