    I agree. Russo is one of the best. Says what is on his mind. Same with LaVelle with the Twins and Chip with the Vikings. All guys that came from other markets and don't have an emotional attachment to the team they cover. Fans covering teams should stick to blogging IMO.

    Again, I don't think he was referring to the things players do. Not sure how many times that needs to be said. And Hammy really isn't a reporter, so I don't see the correlation. Not sure about what he was referring to, but don't care enough to make a huge deal about it. It's between him and Schlossman.

    And I don't think you'll find many Gopher fans who will defend Roman's reporting. Then again, we aren't über-sensitive about criticism of reporters who cover our team either.

    Bottom line, as a reporter if you take everything you read on message boards (especially those of teams other than for the team you cover) personally, your career is going to feel like an eternity.

    I admire the Strib for hiring reporters from outside the market. It is my opinion that you shouldn't be a huge fan of the team you cover. You tend to take criticism of the team and your reporting too personally. It's just a job.

    As far as the article, it's stating what everyone already knew. It's akin to saying Abraham Lincoln will not be running for President of the United States......unless he rises from the dead. UND will not be bringing the nickname back and will continue to play Wisconsin.
    Frankly, I found the count more interesting.

    I'm not. Issue really isn't a personal one.

    Not next year though. Nickname issue wasn't resolved in time. That, or Eaves has another son somewhere he needed to schedule a game against next year and this is just an excuse

    I wasn't referring to Hammy when I said "rubes". I was referring to people like myself whom Schlossman has taken remarks about UND too personally in the past. I am the definition of a rube, and I'll own up to that.

    I give Hammy all the credit in the World for what he does. My point was, he isn't "media", so it isn't his job to dig up stories on Gopher players. I have no problem if people criticize Roman for not being thorough enough, because he isn't. And not just on the bad stuff.

    But he did just blast Lucia recently on the UND rivalry ending (although he was cluelessly off base on doing so). Meanwhile Schlossman made some pretty outlandish remarks about Lucia and the Gophers in reference to the rivalry that I thought was poor reporting. Classic example IMO of Brad the fan getting in the way of Brad the reporter.

    Hammy offered his opinion on something on a Gopher message board. He has no obligation to readers to clarify further. In fact I think he did the right thing by diffusing the situation. That was my point.

    If Brad had a huge problem with it, I would have sent Hammy a DM on Twitter to discuss privately. Instead he escalated something that otherwise was getting relatively little attention. But that's me. Gets back to my point. Can't take this stuff too personally.

    Badgers hockey: North Dakota in future scheduling mix — if it drops 'Fighting Sioux' nickname

    I can't believe the Gophers didn't just take a chance.



    Oh, and Schlossman did his rep no favors and that has nothing to do with Hammy.
