I've read Tito on and off for a couple years. Over the past 6 months or so I've more or less ignored his columns. The reason being, he often presents his opinions as FACT - and I don't like the attitude that what he says goes. He has a large group of readers - and they're being VASTLY misinformed by gems such as:
MR. TITO ON WWE THREATENING WEBSITES WITH PICTURES "You'd figure that by posting WWE images, it would help PROMOTE their federation instead of hurt, which is what they think happens. When the ratings slip, they look for many easy excuses as possible."
MR. TITO ON THE NEWEST TAG-TEAM "Rosey and the Hurricane won't work as a tag team. The writing team will soon get bored with them, or someone will purposely sabotage them if they do get over."
MR. TITO ON INTERNAL POSITIONS "Yet the WWE has Heyman at home, writing up show reviews that the WWE purposely doesn't even look at. Consultant job my ass!"
These are all from one column alone. I don't like posting much in this section - but MAN ALIVE today's column prompted me to post something.
Apparently he knows what the legal team is thinking when they ask websites to stop stealing copyright material, he knows who's going to get sabotaged IN THE FUTURE, and he knows what Paul Heyman's doing - and how the company is treating him.
I wish the WWE would censor him for slander unless he could provide them with proof any of these situations are taking place.
Don't hit me with "if you don't like it, don't read it", because trust me, I won't be.

I'm glad someone else brought this up, I was beginning to think I was the only one growing tired of that column. I've been reading it for quite a long time and he has just been getting more and more bitter with his reviews. After reading the latest I had the same idea to say something about it, because its just such a pain to even bother reading him anymore. It's one thing to dislike the current product BUT hope it gets better, but with him now it just feels like he wants the Fed out of business and gone. You've changed Mr. Tito, you used to be cool.

I've always felt that the reason Tito "got over" at all is because he had an amazing streak of writing columns for over 100 consecutive days, ala Goldberg's streak. Not to say that they were great by any means, but you could go to LOP and get fresh material from him every day, so his fanbase increased relatively quickly.
His historical pieces on the NWO and others were always full of timeline and storyline errors, which bugged me. When doing ECW reviews, he'd always use the VHS instead of the DVD (which featured extra matches) and always put down the DVD format as not having sufficient reasons for him to purchase one.
