Maybe you should just try and concentrate on keeping this blog updated instead of running a live chat during the game as that seems to be more than you can handle.Every time you do a live chat,you disappear for days on end.
Jerry used to do a great job keeping fans informed about the goings on with the team.Corkran’s job is running this blog.Many people aren’t into twitting or texting.Some people actually enjoy reading complete sentences and articles.
I don’t make a whole lot of comments in this blog, but here’s one I can’t hold back: two or more times in recent games, during the game-time Live Chat, both Jerry and Steve have mentioned that someone on-high has dictated that the moderator should speak less, and more-or-less leave the blog up to the fans. That’s asinine. I watch the chat because I’m looking for informed, professional input from guys (pros) who have been studying football and the Raiders professionally for many years. Why in the world would I want to watch a live blog full of amateur opinions? By your count, there are thousands watching. Does the boss ever consider that maybe the great majority of of us are tuned in to hear what Jerry or Steve have to say, and most of the time, couldn’t care less about what the posters say? Sometimes, the posters have good input. But, I thought the balance between the pros and the amateurs was just fine prior to the directive to make it more of an amateurs show. The amateurs might pose interesting questions, but WHO CARES about their opinions? They’re repetitive and really boring. The blog is now much less valuable that it was when half or more of the entries were by the pros.
