He stole the slogan!

No one should be surprised Dave Hyde, better known as Wayne Huizenga's chief sycophant, and the author the of false and grossly misleading rumor that Wayne would save the Marlins with land and $$$ for a new stadium rumor, hit a new low this weekend with this column.

 

Columnists by definition arepaid to write what they think (or what their master want them to publish), not what is accurate or truthful. Had he wanted to, or Wayne allowed him to, there might have been a mention of how this group of "unknowns" were leading MLB in wins this spring training, or how atleast so far they've had little problem scoring runs against everything thrown at them.

 

The more telling piece is in the Herald where Barry Jackson points out that under the lease the Marlins operate under with Huizenga, they are entitled to only 16 seats, all the rest they have to pay for INCLUDING their own suite.

 

But that's the kind of thing you'll never read in a Dave Hyde column.

And to Hyde: I think the FANS are pretty well acquainted with those guys "we've never heard of" by now; but, hey... you're the expert.

 

You're thinking of the superfans on here knowing their names....but do the fans who only go to a few games a year and aren't on this message board know everyone?

Granted, the line separating real fans and fairweather/casual fans is blurry. But, there's only so much "talking down to" one can take from the press. When does one stand up and say: "Enough with the condescending attitude -- give us some intelligent, comprehensive reporting for once?" If you talk back to a baby in baby-talk, how will the baby learn?

But that's what local sports reporting is for. They aim to talk to the masses and this might come as a shock but the mass population of S Fla don't know who these people are. You want in-depth baseball talk you go to sources that offer that. ::Gasp:: What a concept! Don't like it, don't read it. They aim to please the masses not the small percentage of the population on a message board. The media's job is to give a basic understanding to the entire public. You want to know more about a peticular story or subject you need to dig for yourself. Seriously, the reader does have some responsibility, should everything be handed to you?
