Maybe I was sleeping a few monthes ago, but what the hell is Eric S, talking about with this?

From 411wrestling.com

Memo to Chris Depetro: I was never going to Slash. That was a rumor started by Justin Shapiro and CRZ in order to attract people to Slash by making it seem that I was going there. After I left/was fired from The Smarks, the only place I was going was 411. And that was Scott Christ who got into the car accident. Turns out he faked it for a little sympathy.

Dateline: A Few Months Ago

CRZ started advertising that Tuesdays would never be the same and stuff. The buzz on the EZBoard was that anybody from Hyatte to Scaia to even Scott Keith would be doing a weekly Tuesday column on the site. Eric S was also one of those guesses. Z never said his or anybody else's name until the day the new slash writer started...Justin Shapiro.

YES and it ruled. But it would've been a much better story if I'd lasted through January.

I'll bet you and CRZ were just laughing all the way to the bank (while twirling your mustache) with all the money from the obvious rating spike that only a guy like Eric S can bring to a site.

I like how he answers his e-mail in public. I mean, it's not like he's trying to get a false story out there, or attract attention to himself, or anything.

What a clown.

I myself find the internal machinations of the internet wrestling journalism scene far more enthralling than the actual product.

The sad thing is, I'm not sure if being sarcastic anymore or not.

is this rumor really out there? I loved reading Hyatte's stuff but if he starts writing at 1 bob he completely loses any credibility he had.

CRZ, do you still have the occasional AIM chat with Hyatte?

Haven't seen him around too much since he dropped off the radar - in fact, I haven't really talked to him since Christmas (which leads me into gross speculation that He's Generally Really Busy)

I haven't heard that rumour ANYWHERE, but God knows I'm not particularly "plugged into" the "scene," so who can say. I would at least have expected to have seen that surface on Delphi, though, and it hasn't.

Very true TR, but he only answers those which either make the reader look like an idiot or make himself look intelligent. He doesn't have the stones to actually defend his positions, only to make outrageous statements and then hide in a cloud of BS.

And spare me the "don't read it if you don't like it" argument. There ARE times I find his articles entertaining... but oddly enough, those times ALWAYS seem to occur when he's talking about wrestling- the subject that brought me to 411 in the first place.

I'm not saying fire his ass... but for the love of God, edit him.

I read this guy's column one time, and got annoyed by his insertion of political stuff in a wrestling column, so I decided not to read him again. I heard quite a bit later about comments he made post 9/11 and that made me decide not to go to any site that featured him, though I hadn't been going to those sites in the first place so it wasn't that big of a deal to me. But still, if he did show up on a site that I frequent, I would have to quit going there.
Anyway, this is just to say that if I had seen his name when viewing the [slash] main page for the first time, I probably would have not returned...

I read his wrestling news and opinion on 411 today. There was no fucking wrestling news and opinion until the last paragraph. At least when Hyatt rambled on it was entertaining (to me anyway). For now on, I will only go to 411 for Grut and Flea.

He has a format that he follows in his news at 411 that he explained in his first new post. he does very little wrestling news and commentary on Tuesdays just his views and comments primarily on world events and does a more wrestling oriented news column on Wednesdays. Not that I am defending his writing since he and I disagree on our political views but he should have more wrestling in tomorrow's column. FYI though, I enjoyed Hyatte's daily news more than Eric S. and Grut. Flea has been growing on me though.

Eric is and always will be an ass. He's lucky 411 keeps him around.
