    ...I don't know if any of you guys or girls ever post questions to Kevin's mailbag at the Trib online but he seems odd about the ones he chooses to post. I'm not sure if he shies away from controversy or what but I had one question answered over the entire course of the season. Just curious whether there's a method to his madness :lol:

    I've had about six answered.

    He tends to try to select questions that represent what large groups of people are asking.

    He ignores stuff that he's answered multiple times in the past.

    He tends to post stuff that is thoughtful and insightful rather than knee-jerk. For example he wouldn't answer questions like "NORV SUCKS HE SHOULD BE FIRED!!!11!1", but would answer a question like "Is the problem with the current offensive scheme because of...[and then there would be a detailed analysis]."

    Sometimes he gets a little sarcastic, but usually admits as much.

    He answers questions more slowly during the off-season than during the season.

    The best way to get a question answered is to be reasonable, well-thought out and insightful. And if he doesn't answer right away, keep asking it. He will get it eventually.

    He doesn't answer my questions very often.

    He has made comments in his blog the day after I sent him a question. Such as today. Yesterday I asked how come he was too stupid to make the connection between Drew Rosenhaus' client tactics and Osgood's coming out to the media.

    Today, Acee mentions he didn't know Rosenhaus represented Osgood. That shows how little of a fact checker Acee is, and that he half asses almost everything he does.

    It absolutely amazes me what passes for journalism today, & those that supposedly earn their living as journalists. It's not just the sports genre, but I won't go there in this thread. :lol:

    As slipshod as Acee may be, he's better than many. Hell, he's better than most of the ESPN hacks, who purportedly are the cream of the crap - uh, I meant crop. :yes:
