Company Whore-2008

It's beautiful, really, seeing how phony one of the shining lights of Boston Fandom has become now that it is owned by The Boston Globe,which is owned by the New York Times,which owns 17% of the Boston Red Sox.

I'm talking about Boston Dirt Dogs

All last year,when fans were bitching about how very bad Glenn Geffner was, BDD ignored it. This site, 38cliches.com which was a leader in the vanguard of criticism, couldn't even get a frickin' link on BDD, despite my personally requesting it of Steve Silva. This was especially galling, since I was providing new vitriol,um,I mean comment, every day, while at the same time a lot of sites linked by BBD were n ot updating, or had been shut down for lack of interest.

Now? Big Bad Geff is gone, and it's ok to kick the Little Feller when he is down. Sure enough, the 17 percenters at BDD have this banner headline on March 25, 2008:

"With Geffner Gone, Dale Arnold Sounds Like Vin Scully"

Really, no shit, we get it.
