    Damn those witches who disagree with a journalist because they disagree with their positions! Those are the witches that require most burning of all. Who the hell do they think they are? Disagreeing with a journalist? Nazis, fascists, socialists, tyrannical despots --we need to burn the witches who disagree with a journalist and make their opinions known! Anyone who disagrees with a journalist is a Nazi, perhaps Adolf reincarnate!

    No one has proved this is a "competitive issue' that isn't common throughout the league that's why I don't buy Brewer's logic.


    Well, nothing can be literally proven about a subject like this - even by individuals privy to the inner workers of our team. It's all people theory which is as much art as it is science. I maintain the "competitive issue" may be more prevalent on our squad than those with older players and coaching staffs using more dated and rigid methodologies. This isn't because we talk about or emphasize competition more or anything like that but because we're better at acquiring and training players who fit what we mean by all that talk about competition. If this is true and the way we do things does lead to increased PED use, it's still not really an issue as much as it is a hiccup on an otherwise progressive process.

    In the end, we don't, won't, and can't know enough to say anything with any realistic conviction. We can only make approximations. This is the mistake Brewer makes in regard to accuracy but if he instead wrote or spoke about how vague of an issue this really is, he probably wouldn't maintain as many listeners or readers. There's just too many consumers that want things made to appear simple even when it's anything but.

    Disagreeing is perfectly fine and one thing. Outright dismissal and pot shots at people you do not agree with is another. Did you not read all the responses in this thread? "Brewer's a hack!" "Why would anyone listen to that fool?" "What an idiot!" It's a sad epedemic that plagues the internet and society in general today. "I don't agree with this! So and so is an idiot! Nothing he says should be taken serious!" This along with not even attempting to understand or listen to the viewpoint you don't agree with really makes people ignorant and close-minded. Politics and media has polarized society to such extremes, that there is no longer anything to be won by taking a differing opinion or middle ground. All people do is shout you down or sing your praises depending which extreme they subscribe to. I'm sorry if you don't see it. But we live in an obnoxiously ignorant society. People no longer are willing to listen to anything other than what they want to hear. Anything otherwise is sacriledge or a sign of weakness. Sorry if you disagree. But there is much to gain from considering opposing and differing takes and viewpoints. There can be merit found EVEN WHEN YOU DISAGREE.
