Personally I don't think players should individually engage in public pissing contests with local reporters, especially before a game.
If it needs to be done then I think the GM or president should take the heat off the players and make their own statement on behalf of.


Jim Popp has had a number of battles with the Zerk... Players are people just like you and I.

Love Billy Parker. He's not a vocal type either, so when he talks it's because he has something to say.


Herb is sitting behind a bulletproof union contract. Would cost them more to fire him than it would pay him till retirement.

Can you believe Herb posted this?! :lol:

Okay Herb! :lol: What's that saying about a pot and a kettle, and the color black...

Johnny, I`m a little concerned about your social life with all these early posts lately, but yeah one can only wish Herb would follow Cole into early retirement from Postmedia.

Herb is protected by a bullet proof union contract or he'd already be retired :lol:

Thanks for your concern Sheldon! But, everything's ok. Johnny is just in hibernation for the winter!

Johnny really hates winter, and days where it is completely dark by 4PM! :x

Herb also doesn`t seem to play well with others:

@ Herb Zurkowsky1
#AlsMTL have made contract offer to OT David Foucault, former 1st-round draft choice. But he remains committed to testing NFL waters ...

"While terms of the contract weren’t disclosed, numerous sources have indicated Jackson was seeking an annual salary of at least $200,000. Reed, in turn, doesn’t want any player on the Als — other than the starting quarterback — earning more than $150,000.
On Monday, Reed told the Montreal Gazette it was the job of his scouts to find skilled players, such as receivers. And the addition of Jackson still fails to address Montreal’s biggest need, finding a pair of American offensive tackles."

Comme c'est petit... Comme disait Sol, pâvre de petit moi!

Herb est-il à ce point stupide pour penser qu'à force de vomir sur les Alouettes, ils vont lui donner les primeurs, ou même l'heure juste? Quand on lance des dards sans relâche sur quelqu'un, il finit par s'éloigner. Qu'il ne vienne pas alors se plaindre qu'il n'a plus la primeur, encore moins qu'il se fasse jouer des tours. Il l'a plus que cherché.

Une chance qu'il y a Éric Leblanc! Voilà un chroniqueur honnête.

The only reason Herb has a job is because his union golden parachute is probably around the same thing as keeping him till he's 65. Journalism is dead, that's why you are seeing all the young guy try to build websites and blogs. They know the end is near :)

Not a fan of the attacks on Herb's masculinity TBH. That's toxic -- the idea that he's somehow less of a man or that he must be sexually frustrated. This idea that you have to be a virile masculine manly man and if you're not, that's why you're an a-hole. Stop with this. It's part of the culture that encourages men to be misogynists.

Johnny, I totally get it. But tying a man's sense of value to his ability to get laid is part of rape culture, where men feel they have to "get" women by any means necessary to belong to the club. I know you weren't intending that, more reflecting your own frustration (hey, mine too) when we go too long without "luvin". ;)

Put it another way: there is SO MUCH material for you to use to take down Herb Z without this stuff. You are the master of the roast. Go to it. :D :D :D

I've cleaned up this thread a little bit. As I think a few have mentioned, we don't need to disparage a member of the press with insinuations about their personal life; his professional output is where our critiques should go. :)
