Team Tuck, if you want to consider me a "worshipper" for treating a fellow poster with respect and for being grateful when that person answers my questions, that is fine. What is not fine is your continued treatment of Team Clark. Just because you don't like what he posts doesn't mean that you can't respect his right to post. There are plenty of people here whose opinions I disagree with, but I don't sit here and question that person's credibility and attack their thoughts. Why shouldn't we have the right to know whether players are getting along or if Bowden is stirring up trouble? Team Clark almost always tells us who he is getting his info from. If the entire team hates one another, don't you think it is going to affect the product on the field (which you deem as very important)? Not to mention that Team Clark has withheld a number of things simply because it would not be classy to say. That doesn't sound like a gossip columnist from the National Enquirer to me.
What bothers me even more about your continuous attacks on Team Clark is that you fail to recognize the fact that if you don't like what that person is saying, there is no reason to read it. There are certain people that I ignore when I don't like what they are saying and why they are saying it. So the bottom line is, if you don't like it, don't read it. Don't b&tch about it and spoil it for the rest of us who enjoy it.
Wow, I thought this thread had died.
Rem, I do not know the complete answer to your question. All I know is the numbers I see in our statistics compared to someone else's numbers. Whether they are audited or not I do not know. We have a subscription to Nielsen Net ratings. They have proven to be highly accurate. If I can find a way to get you more valid info I will.
Team Tuck. You are classic. You are a good lithmus test. I hold nothing against you.

BTW Geo and I are friends, we just like to dig one another. We usually agree down the line.
Catch22 really put ths thread into perspective. Thanks gain for all of your support.
Hoosier you have always been supportive and continure to be an excellent poster. Thanks again.
Since this has evolved into a "Who's Who" of redszone posters, I thought I'd contribute!
I was initially of the natural inclination to take Team Clark's posts with as much of a grain of salt as everyone else's. It was only natural IMO given the anonymity of the 'net. He has taken the steps to establish his credibility for many here, and though I have not met him I believe him to be who and what he says.
I appreciate his posts, and, as I always do unless I absolutely know for sure, take anything I read only for what it's worth. That's not a slam on TC2, just how I view anything written by someone I don't know extremely well.
The questions you get are understandable, Team Clark, but I think once most people understand your position they will leave well enough alone. Just keep on doing your job, stick to the lines you've drawn for yourself, and have fun with your job. If you're ever in Toledo, let me know and we'll catch a Mud Hens game (if the Tigers don't steal all their players 1st! <img border="0" alt="[Laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh.gif" /> )

Thanks Bucksfan... I almost made a trip there last year. Maybe this year is the year I get to see the Mud Hens play.
I think it's great that Team Clark posts on this board...his posts are always insightful, and many times, informative and even humorous I, for one, am happy he's here with us all.
When my friend Cindy and I worked at BOB a couple seasons back, we would always hear the good inside stuff on the DBacks...Cindy ran the press and media elevator and the opposing players would ride it too. Every night after games, on our way home, she would always tell me the juicy news she'd heard from the press guys LOL It was interesting to hear some of the things she heard LOL We'd hear stuff about the other teams too, such as when Todd Stottlemyre's ex-wife (they were still married at the time; this was before Stotty became a DBack) got lost in the ballpark and Todd left, back to St. Louis without her LOL But then again, for the past couple seasons, she told me that Larry Walker wants to leave Colorado and has the Diamondbacks listed as his #1 team to play for...it became common knowledge just recently in Colorado about him wanting to leave...stuff the fans never hear unless it suddenly becomes revealed through the press and media people...
I see NOTHING at all wrong with Team Clark giving us the inside scoop, or even just his personal opinions on any topic about the Reds, or baseball in general. Keep up the great work, Team Clark You are a valuable member of our board and our friendships here

Thanks 17. That is your age too isn't it? I saw your ST pics. You look 17-18. Hope to see you in Az this year.
I for one enjoy TC posts. I can understand his reluctance to reveal his sources too. I recently met a Reds scout, and I was reluctant to discuss things he said, for fear of dropping my new found friend in the grease. Silly I suppose, but the world just isn't that big anymore. I wonder TC, who, if any members of the Reds actually read this site?
lgj - I have no problem with Team Clark. He has no problem with me. So we see some things differently - that's what a message board is all about. He's like inside scoop; I like baseball. That's why TC is popular with all the women on the board. Women love that gossipy, scoopy type info. Your point about not reading what you don't like is ridiculous. Am I to stop halfway thru a post because I don't like what I'm reading. Of course not. Instead, I hit the add reply button and tell 'em why they're wrong. Also, do players need to get along to be a good team?? Absolutely not. 25 individuals go play hard and produce, and you'll be one hell of a team. I'll take all the Peter Edwards and Johnny Benches I can get.
Is TC single - I think 'ol lgj may have a little crush going here. I can't be certain - I just get that feeling. I mean, we're all for gossip, right?
I don't know why everyone thinks we hate each other. Team Tuck you really put that well. No one has to agree with me or like my material. I get a lot of e-mails where people do not agree. That's all part of baseball.
Team Clark, did chat stop working for you?
And Team Tuck, how can I have a crush on someone I have never met? Makes me sound a little shallow!
yes. Check your PM's in a minute
Chat appears to have stopped working for everyone. Nothing new there. LOL
I think I have a crush on Red Hot Number 17!!! Wooo Hooo!!! C'Mon baby!!!! That goes for TC and TB as well.
Personally I was quite blown away by the picture of Boss! <img border="0" alt="[Rollin]" title="" src="graemlins/roll.gif" />
