"Scott Keith posted twice early in this thread and called in a favor from one of his longtime backbenchers (but an ``impartial observer,'' of course)."

Honestly I didn't even know that Scott had posted in this thread before I responded but if you wan't to make assumptions that the most important thing on my agenda Mondy morning was commendeering a GRANDIOSE message board scheme of subliminal deception, so be it. Just stating my opinion that "Matt" sounded like a 16 year old Hyatte mark and his credibility should be treated accordingly. You may disagree and that's fine, we are all entitled to our own opinions.

Translation: ``I didn't actually read the thread, I was too busy rushing to Scott's defense to bother to see if he had defended himself.''

You're right, that makes you sound even more impartial.


    ...but if you wan't to make assumptions that the most important thing on my agenda Mondy morning was commendeering a GRANDIOSE message board scheme of subliminal deception, so be it.


I don't think there was anything GRANDIOSE or subliminal about it. Deceptive, though? Yes. You've been working with Scott for how long now? Please don't insult people by suggesting you are anything approaching impartial or that you're an outsider.


    Just stating my opinion that "Matt" sounded like a 16 year old Hyatte mark and his credibility should be treated accordingly. You may disagree and that's fine, we are all entitled to our own opinions.


An you sounded like a 16 year-old Keith mark. Should your credibility be any less suspect?

And yes, you're right, I am entitled to my opinion that your post wasn't impartial and was fueled by a desire to defend Scott, for whatever reason.

This is getting silly. Can't we all just agree that Scott sucks and get on with it? I mean, this is so nerdy of us.

I've only been exposed to Hyatte through 411, but of course have heard of him in the past. He's quickly becoming my favorite Internet wrestling writer. Also very entertaining. Am I the only one who enjoys both? Or, maybe more accurately, am I the only one who will admit to it?


I used to read SK a lot, when he was on Wrestlemaniacs and Wrestleline. I read whatever he posts on OO these days. I don't get to 411 much. I like his little fantasy thing (World hero league) better. Frankly, Hyatte bores me. I started hearing about him some years ago on TNFD and found him (Was it on Scoops?) and thought he was boring then. We are not amused.

I like Scaia and CRZ and wish Al was writing and miss MiCasa even more. And most of the people here are relatively literate. Even SeaDawg. But Scaia will always be internet writing as far as I am concerned.

Hyatte is more entertaining because you get the feeling that he gets laid every once and awhile. And doesn't rate it, afterwards.

Go ahead and attack asteroidboy if need to, but I think he has a valid point, he just tried to present it in a less than obvious way. I think what he's trying to say is that Hyatte is more pleasing to read because he seems like a guy who has a life outside the internet wrestling scene. He's more relaxed and comfortable with his place. He's very self-depricating a lot of the time, admitting when he sucks (which happens sometimes). Scott, on the other hand will never admit when he's wrong or isn't writing at his best. Scott will flat out deny that BUZZ was putrid if you told him, but Hyatte admits that the X8 Mop-Up wasn't his best and he says so right there. Hyatte is just much cooler about his persona than Scott. Scott desperately wants to be an "authority" on wrestling. Hyatte is just having fun and people appreciate that more. "Getting laid" may or may not have something to do with that. As far as Pat Patterson, it's a running joke now, the jokes themselves aren't even that funny anymore. The fact that he's still telling them makes me laugh. To each his own I guess. I just wish Hyatte would do "And Another Thing" again. Those columns really were the best thing on the 'net. Sometimes funny, often times poignant, but always smart. Give me one time Keith wrote anything as heartfelt and as devoid of cynicism as the Tully Blanchard piece "The Road"?

If Scott Keith is so pathetic and stupid, then tell me this:

Are you any less pathetic or stupid for dedicating your time and energy to posting about how pathetic and stupid he is? I mean, he's got established spots on a couple of reasonably well-known website, has published a book, has another book on the way, and gets comped tickets to WWE events. Fame and Fortune? Hardly. But what have you got?

Let me guess, you wouldn't want what he has, right?

Then why do you spend so much time slagging it? If reading Scott Keith isn't worth your time, why dedicate so much effort to trying to convince other people it's not worth theirs? Are we not able to decide for ourselves? If your opinion mattered even one iota to me, I'd probably read your column/website/book.

You don't have one? Imagine that.

This is just as valid from the other perspective (i.e. that Hyatte sucks).

If you ignore something, it might go away; if you draw attention to it, it most certainly will not. You are not going to embarrass Scott Keith or Chris Hyatte with repeated dumbass ``flames'' on a web board; in fact, they would probably thank you for increasing their exposure.

Hyatte started a netfeud this week. It's bound to be entertaining. I doubt it's going to have any serious balls to it, but it's already been good for a few laughs. Leave the flaming to the professionals, please, otherwise you look like just another sacless wonder, lining up to spit on the prone form of the guy who stole your lunch money -- after somebody who actually has a pair took him out.

Edit: If you really want to speak out on columnists, why not tell CRZ or Llakor, or cfgb or CubsFan or BucsFan or SeaDawg or a ton of other guys making the effort why you love them? Saying something nice about someone who's here makes far more sense that slagging someone who only comes here to defend himself or troll for column filler...

Holy Kau, he's still telling them? Damn, I haven't read Hyatte in years, and I was expecing someone to bring up that he hasn't told them in a long as time. But, he still tells them? Sheesh, that just seems sad.

Hyatte's act hasn't changed at all, but I still like it. I do have to say that your La Parka picture cracks me up. Anything with the Chairman in it makes me laugh.

I appreciate anyone who takes the time out of thier day to inform/entertain/amuse me, and Hyatte, CRZ, Keith, and the Rick have done that more than anyone else since I first found wrestling websites on the net. I enjoy reading all of them, and I hope they continue to find satisfaction in doing so.

Of course (as usual), Flea has to be one of the better voices of reason and keep things in perspective. Hopefully, summer ends early in FLA, and we'll see him around a little more regularly too.

    (edited by tarnish on 13.6.02 1932)



I'm sure the fact that you feel the need to defend these men who have their own platform to defend themselves is not anymore a waste of time than anything anyone else has said. But see, the difference is YOU'RE talking so your opinion is much more valid than mine. So, sorry for stepping on your toes. Scott and Hyatte can say whatever they want about anybody because they're "professionals". Of course, they're the only "professionals" who don't get paid for what they do and do it for fun just like how we all post here for fun. When I'm no longer able to sound off as I please about something I don't like then please feel free to shut the internet down. And come on, it's not like it takes a whole lot of time or energy to say what I say so don't pretend like I'm "wasting my life". Just remember tarnish, if you're going to preach about something at least be able to say you do the same. You're spending too much time concerned with me.

I'm gonna go with tarnish and Llakor and say that everyone could put a positive spin on this by talking about who they like and why in the Site Feedback folder. CRZ puts a ton of freelance content up and it would be nice to see/hear what people think. Feedback rules.

The whole Keith-Hyatte thing is like a good 80s song. You still like it. You'll isten when it comes on. ou might even sing along if you remember the words. But at the end of the day, it's still old. Amusing, but old. And dated. MO of course.

Respectfully...
You're more than welcome to your opinon. That's the beauty of the internet. The real catch is that you've flogged the dead "KevinKellyisFNHardcore doesn't like Scott Keith" Horse about 15 times too many in this thread.

WE GET IT.

I'll say it again for clarity:

WE GET IT.

I think that's what people are trying to tell you. It's clear you don't like him. It would be nice for you to expend your energies and attention elsewhere now. You don't have to, but I would imagine you're going to continue receiving a lot of criticism as long as you continue to -- as I said before -- beat a dead horse.
