For the record, I voted for Justin Boone…but Ron, Ken didn’t write the title, nor did he write the sub-title.
That’s not his job and he can’t be blammed for that.
What he can be blammed for are the two following comments in the article:
“Cornerback Lawrence Gordon was burned by another touchdown reception from Als’ Kerry Watkins.” and “Als’ quarterback Anthony Calvillo fired his 300th career touchdown pass – a 30-yard thing of beauty to Watkins who had beat Gordon.”
Ummm, sorry Ken, you’re wrong! On that play, the Cats were in a zone and either Manning or Glasper was supposed to adjust and take the deepest man. Gordon’s job was to cover the outs and the flats, not the corner, post or the fly. Nobody beat Gordon. If anything, Gordon went out of his way to try to make the play, and just because he was the closest guy to the play doesn’t mean it was his fault. Do you even know what’s going on on the field Ken? You’re a moron.
Other than that though Ron, what did Ken say that was so wrong Ron? I don’t like him either but his report was accurate other than his toughts about Gordon getting “burned.” (Which is unacceptable to me because if you’re going to rip a player at least get it right…but it doesn’t make the rest of his story wrong.)
BTW, Boone has no choice but to be positive. He writes for Ticats.ca.
You're right AMG. It was even mentioned on the broadcast that Manning blew his covereage on that play.
Curious how Peters doesn't single anyone out on the opening play of the 2nd half that resulted in the 81 yard TD, but he's quick to blame Gordon twice on something he was not responsible for, and, as AMG mentioned, he was trying to cover for his teamate's mistake.
Exactly.....Ken is clueless sometimes. I mean, I know it must be hard for him to cover all these losses and being positive is probably getting extremely difficult for him, but how does he not know what's going on on the field considering he's been covering the team for what seems like forever? Has he never seen a zone defence before? Give your head a shake Ken.
I'll give him his due. He was a good writer for the Spec when he was writing news, being an editor and writing humourous little stories (Vignettes I think they were called) among other duties at the Hamilton monopoly.
As a reporter on football. Not cutting it.
Here is my favourite clip from yesterday's article. Starting tonight...the Cats will play their next three contests against eastern conference opponents. It's really four if you want to include the Labour Day Classic against against Toronto.
Ah, yes Kenny, I would like to count the game against the Argos as a fourth game against an eastern opponent. :roll:
Why on earth would they want to do that? They are part of the community as well. Why would they want the team to fail? That makes no sense, especially considering the Spectator and the Cats have an advertising partnership. Heck, they even teamed up with the Spec for the Season Ticket Holders gift last season (which was awful if you ask me but some people liked it). There is no way this is true.
To be honest, I think it's more of the fact that this organization's football operations have been the laughing stock of the league for the better part of a decade. They are reporting on it and quite frankly, probably as fed up as most of us fans.
Kenny doesn't have to be "positive" he just has to be fair and impartial.
As the internet has proven any moron can be negative and wallow in the obvious mistakes.
But it takes a bit of football smarts to look deeper.
Why does he think he doesnt' have to mention the team was in the game until well into the third QTR, won the giveaway/takeaway, some pretty good drives with a backup QB (who he doesnt like), a brilliantly executed two point conversion and some big hits causing turnovers.??
All with four significant players out of the lineup not including Lumsden.???
Then he (and some fans) takes on a smug tone like he's the only one who knew the Cats were going to lose - a game he himself said was a foregone conclusion days before?
Kenny (and some fans) says he doesnt enjoy the Cats losing.
