    Default Question for the board....

    Did FC write a letter to Smizik's boss at the PG basically telling him to muzzle Smizik from criticizing the FO. I have read a few references about this but I have not seen any concrete proof. Can someone shed a little light on this subject?

    I highly doubt it. This is the first that I've heard or read about this to be honest. The only reason I figured that Smizik was currently "silent" is because the Pirates are 4-2, hitting good enough, pitching well and really there's little to ***** about Ownership and Management over at this time. Smizik has little to write about in regards to the Pirates since all he does is write on the negative.

    I expect Smizik's negativity to arise at some point.

    If you go to the site, there is plenty of criticism going on.

    You obviously haven't read the first installment today of his critique of Pirate management. Today's episode features Bob Coonely. I only made it half-way through. It has no relevance to anything important. It's soley intended to fire up the goons, and give them some "facts."

    Someone over there said with certainty that FC did write a letter to the PG, but that doesn't seem FC like.

    You guys hate me. I went over there and read, I guess it was his stjupid Take me out to the Ball game post and then yesterdays Frank Coonelly post.

    I take back my earlier post. The Pirates are off to a 4-2 start and Bob Smizik is over there in full out smear campaign mode attempting with his usual high amount of failure to crap all over some part of management. There's absolutely NO reason why that cock smoker (Smizik) has to be writing these half wit garbage posts about Frank coonelly when there's some sort of actual positive vibe and results happening with the Piratres. A true journalist writes about the positives when they occur. 2 Bit hacks like Bob Smizik obviously don't.

    If Frank wrote a letter it obviously didn't amount to **** based on Smizik's post from yesterday.

    That's what I am referring to. It seems that FC did write a letter about his displeasure with Smizik’s blog….obviously it had no effect. Smizik definitely does not like FC maybe it's personal.

    I think Smizik has referenced it in the past. I don't know that it was directed at Smizik specifically, but it sounds like he did contact the paper at some point and Smizik took it as a personal attack. No one has ever said what it was actually about, so it's hard to say. I would assume he was more focused on the actual paper than Smizik's blog, but I really have no idea.

    Where's the proof though? some shmuck saying it over at Smizik's blog doesn't really mean anything. Heck, if you really think about it, most of those guys over there make up crap for their own agendas a good 75% of the time. Tough to really buy into anything they said.

    I cant see any of them would have any knowledge of whether Coonelly wrote to the PG or not

    The PG and Smizik seem to be hell bent on their agenda of getting FC and/or NH fired. Ultimately they want Nutting gone too.

    I have no proof that's why I'm asking the question. I've heard this reference several times though.

    Kipper, did you just make that 75% figure up? I would have guessed that number to be much higher.....

    Not sure about an FC letter, but Dejan has referenced that Neal and him don't get along at all.

    Today in his critic of Neal Huntington Smizik criticizes the draft and says Tony Sanchez's stock is falling?

    Huh?

    The amount of **** made up over there is more like 98%
