YIKES. At some point he left the planet Sports Reporter and crash-landed on planet Junior High Schooler.

As much as fans like to claim they want better sports reportage, I think the vast majority would just as soon go back to the "Golden Age" of sports when stories had to be greenlit by team financial interests, columns were essentially glorified press releases, and "the sanctity of the clubhouse" ensured players were mythical Gods who could do no wrong.

Damn... I actually went to the site and the Q&A's are actually quite insightful and well-written.

As usual, DS has a stick up his ass and needs to be the attention whore. I wonder if he's ever turned down a TV spot or book deal.

Wow, talk about Battle of the Douchebags.

Just for the record, this is hardly round one. I think we're up to at least round 3

I spent a half hour or so reading Shilling's Q&A section on a couple of days ago. Shaughnessy sums up Shillings blog pretty well.

I ell Oh elled.

I'm a Yankees fan, and even I can agree that Dan Shaughnessy is an utter tool. That had to have been some of the lamest "sportswriting" I've ever seen. It doesn't come close to the A-Rod hatchet-jobs in the NY tabloids every day, though.

Dan's a talentless hack. That's been obvious since he started writing.

Red Light and the CHB both need to go back to Planet Douchebag and leave the rest of us the Hell alone.

I hate both of them damn near equally, so it's a win-win for me. Someone should throw Shughnessy under a city bus - and then shove Schilling out there when the bus gets going again.

Went to Schilling's website. Gotta give CHB credit, actually - that WAS pretty close. He still sucks though.

An enemy of Shaughnessy is a friend of mine.

Somebody post one of Ted Williams' rants about how he hated the sportswriters in Boston and how the fans suck too.
