Kyle Maxwell declares in his new Smarkies that everyone should not like a guy at the top of the card because Kyle does not believe he is showing enough quality wrestling. Doesn't that sound a bit... SMARKY?

He doesn't say anyone should dislike Brock at all. He merely questions the logic of people who'll slag whoever its cool to hate one month (in this case Steiner) while ignoring someone whose in ring work is not a great deal better (Brock).

Can't say I agree with his comparison, but the sentiments are spot on.

    Why are people complaining about Steiner and going orgasmic over Lesnar, when they're basically the same guy?

Right, 1 guy can barely move around the ring (Steiner), while the other out-bumps 95% of the roster (Lesnar). 1 guy can't put on a watchable match if you got in a time machine and imported Ric Flair in his prime to the WWE (Steiner), while the other guy's ring work is apparently being stifled, and we know he can pull out a SSP (Lesnar).

But, yeah, they're pretty much the same guy.

Wrestling opinion is full of little paradoxes like this one: When the writing is good but the ring work sucks, we complain that there's no decent WRESTLING, dammit, but when we get good matches out the wazoo the booking is subject to a tongue-lashing. And whilst his comparison doesn't quite work, I can see where Kyle is coming from; a prime example would be The Undertaker, a man whose persona and ring work can still be very entertaining but who is routinely sacrificed on the I-Net altar for reasons that we can't even remember. When the hatred ball gets rolling, it's damn hard to stop, and although Steiner hasn't done anything to invite compliments, some of the reactions I see to him make me alugh when I tihnk of the shit we've put up with in the past.

Kyle went insane a few months ago. You should really leave him alone with his mindless rambling lest he get the initiative to write some more.

Suggestion: You guys need to hop over to the OOForum and talk about this there; otherwise, I get a whole bunch of "martyr" clickovers I don't need later. (I learned this LAST time (onlineonslaught.com))

Curious to see what exactly a "martyr clickover" is, I started reading that OO Forum.

HOW DARE THEY MAKE FUN OF THE WIENERBOARD!!??!!

How can people NOT appreciate having a forum to make fun of other people's sites? How can people NOT appreciate having a level system (Boston Idol excluded)? How dare they claim CRZ acts cocky sometimes?

(Well, they *might* be right on the last one...)

The thought crossed my mind for a second to give them what-for, and then I realized that's how those stupid board wars get started. Whatever.

This board rocks. Screw them for not knowing that.

I'd spend more time at the OO Forums, but they don't love me as much over there.

Matt, maybe they'd love you more if you spent more time over there. Huh?

And everyone here ought to know that I am NOT making fun of the wienerboard. I was warmly welcomed here in one of my darkest hours....

*shrugs*

There was a power outage all around Jeb's neighborhood. He was the only one with a generator. This was at about 1 AM. Hence, his darkest hour.

Oh, I doubt it. I don't think I'd have the patience to get myself over there.

Besides, I waste enough of my time on ONE wrestling message board, thanks.

I do a little time over there, and...

They didn't invent linkify and linkified.

They have no DEAN.

They have no constant intelligent Buffy/Angel/Toonami banter.

They never banned Panda Mask.

Winner and STILL message board champion...

I think it's funny that that thread in the OOForums degenerated into gay jokes instead of HHH bashing.

I like Rick's approach to the news and I almost always agree with his opinions, so that's where I like to go every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. However, I just got into this board before that one opened, so I stuck with this. There's too much danger of getting stuck cross-posting if you frequent two similar boards.

Besides, Rick's best writers (beside himself) post their stuff here regularly and read and respond to reaction, so there's little reason to visit his boards. (Sorry, Rick... you gave me my biggest claim to fame, but I can't bring myself to make paypal donations or increase your hit count in the forums... I hope you can find some way to forgive me)

The Wienerboard is the place to go for the most diverse, flame-free opinions, so that's where I go for my interactive fix.
