Now that Dave is getting his radio show back, maybe he will be able to control all of his bitterness that he has been spewing on his website. I swear, after the show went off the air, he got bitter as hell. I think actually talking to people who actually find something redeeming about the WWF product will calm him down.

You people don't like Dave Meltzer because you can't stand someone speaking their mind on your precious little WWF. You stupid assholes. Why do you grovel at McMahon's feet? You're not employed by him ( or are you? ). You're financial well being doesn't rest on his shoulders and how much you kiss his ass. Your children don't rely on him for food on the table. So why do you cry and whine when someone speaks the truth about WWF? Why do you think McMahon is such a genius ( especially with all the crap he has produced through the years )?
Dave Meltzer is the only wrestling journalist that has dared speak the truth about the industry. He is one of the few that don't act as Vince McMahon's personal mouthpiece and he doesn't buy McMahon's revisionist history the way so many other dirtrags do ( including the so-called mainstream media whose standards for truth are allegedly very high ). And WO doesn't include the wild speculation and bold faced lies that so many other wrestling newsletters, websites, etc. etc. do.

RIGHT THERE...right there, you should've stopped. All those other words you typed? Totally wasted effort. Probably canceled out the words before it, too.
You exposed yourself as a troll, whether you meant too or not. Not only does it kill this post off, but anyone who read this post will take everything you say less seriously.
I mean, I don't get it - why waste time writing a post that's not gonna be taken seriously? You obviously strongly believe what you're saying, and you do have some merit to what you are saying beyond there, but the way you choose to express makes it a total waste.
And then besides, you might want to reply to what people in thread are ACTUALLY SAYING instead of putting words in their mouth.
FWIW, saying "Dave Meltzer doesn't do a good job - or at least as good a job as he SHOULD be doing or he USED too", "the sarcastic comments of the Observer recappers don't work for me" or "the Observer website, more or less, is a joke" doesn't mean you 100% support Vince. They're not polar opposites, and there's definete room to not be totally happy with either guy.
I hit the nail on the head, cubby. I know what they are all about. Perhaps that is what is bothering you. Judging from the posts in this thread as well as in others, it is quite obvious various members here throw hissy fits when someone dares to question McMahon or the WWF. As if it's heresy. Well, that's bosh. McMahon doesn't own me the same way he apparently owns the minds of several people here. I speak the truth and I don't worry or give a damn if it doesn't coincide with McMahon's version of the "truth". The same goes with Dave Meltzer. Anyone who doesn't bow down before McMahon and the WWF, you describe as "bitter". You people need to get over "McMahon". He's not all that great. He may have good points ( ok, maybe you have to look with a magnifying glass but I'm sure they are there ) but he has many many bad points and I'm not going to ignore them to suit some drooling WWF fans.

So..... what's the deal? Do you not like the WWF? Pro wrestling? Or, maybe you just don't like humanity in general... better get to Walgreens and pick me up another drool cup post-haste.

I think most people don't like Dave for the same reason some people don't like widescreen movies, because they are too ignorant to know any better. The last time I visited 1wrestling it was to read this diatribe by Ryder against Meltzer and Big Bob's only slams included shots about typos or run on sentences. Bringing up the fact that an average issue of the Observer has about as much information as 2-3 months of 1wrestling was apparently not on the agenda.
It's the Observer and the Torch that keep 90% of the websites out there in existance because without them, what would we know? The WWF sure as hell isn't going to release any information that isn't directed at 10 year old kids or retarded adults.
I've always gotten the impression that the problem stems with Scherer's perception of his own importance within wrestling. In terms of breaking a story, I'd estimate they may get the jump on one or two out of ten with Meltzer breaking the rest.
