Inside The Ropes vs. The Hot Newz!

I was told by the board's Powers That Be to bring my comment about the Hot Newz over here, so here it is!

Shouldn't Rick bring the real thing over to OO?

I like Canadian Bulldog's stuff, but nothing tops the Hot Newz! OMFG!

I tried reading that, I really did. But when you get to the 14th misspelled word in the first sentence, it gets a little distracting.

I'm getting soft in my old age.

For the love of God you can't be serious. While I am no huge fan of Inside the Ropes at least Bulldog can put together a coherent paragraph that I can actually follow and understand. This guy can't even spell basic words. At least I don't get a headache from Inside the Ropes trying to translate the column into English. Man, I enjoyed Chuck-O's GCW recaps over this pile of pablum.

Geezes and people get on Goalie about his grammar and typos. This guy takes the cake.

I would love to hear Jeb's critique on this guy.

Well, I think that Bulldog guy sucks and any change would be... oh wait...

I've said this a few times on CRZ's site, and maybe it bears repeating here: I am a HUGE FAN of Hot Newz, and certainly a lot of my style inspired by him. That and probably the Jackie Harvey column from The Onion.com are my biggest influences, and I certainly have never claimed otherwise.

I think (hope) there is a subtle difference between the two, however: Hot Newz' character is more a parody of those `newz' sites from the late-90's that would intentionally make shit up and fail to proofread their copy. My character is more someone who just doesn't have a clue. I find the latter to be a bit more of a challenge. Hot Newz' opinion may differ completely.

That's all I have to say about this topic, but I just wanted to weigh in with that.

Oh, and...

Thanks for the compliment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had to take out about 100 of those exclamation points. They didn't wrap to the next line. Instead, they pushed the board frames waaaaaaaay out of whack and made it hard to read your post (or any others).
