In case you missed it, over the weekend there was a Twitter skirmish between Dowbiggin and Simmons:

Dowbiggin…………..”Some genius says Gretzky trade hurt CDN hockey. What hurt was 63-cent dollar and inept mgmt. in cities like TOR, VAN where fans are suckers”

Simmons…………….”@dowboy the genius you refer is in newspaper, TV and radio. Jobs you can’t seem to keep”

Dowbiggin……………”@simmonssteve Insecure, aren’t we? Like I have to prove snything to you. Instead of ad hominems answer the critique”

Simmons……………..”You can’t debate anything meaningful in a 140 character forum. But it may be only placed you’re published these days”

Simmons………………”@cdmartined Ill gladly debate anything I write. I just have no use for weasels like Dowbiggin, who don’t have stones to do it face to face”

They were the two main media guys telling us that the inane and self-contradicting alleged ‘fan protests’ over the NHL lockout should be taken seriously, when anyone reading their columns on the subject was laughing at them. They deserve each other.
The one thing I agree with there is that a forum limited to posts of 140 characters is going to be almost entirely useless, unless you find short insults to be useful, productive, and interesting discussion.

I was listening to PTS yesterday and was cringing at the thought of Bob and Dirk on together, but surprisingly, I really enjoyed it. Somehow Grumpy Bob and Jerk Dirk don’t show up when they’re next to each other. I think Cosentino just brings the worst out of Hayhurst, and so do various co-hosts with Bob. In general, I think Bob is better without a co-host than he is with Cox, Shannon or even Friedman. Without a co-host Bob just focuses on doing the interviews and he’s still pretty good at that.

I am still amused by Elliott calling Friedman “cuz.”

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
