Texans Chick nailed it... I don't dislike McClain or Justice - but when it comes to "matters of Mario" they seem to be coming from the wrong place... and that place isn't a 'journalistic' one - that goes for their articles AND their blogs.
after looking at this for a moment I've kinda come to the conclusion that he wanted to take a shot at Mario but lumped in some bad imagery of VY so he wouldn't take as much heat for bashing Mario. Seems like he is making the famous Richard Justice chicken salad out of chicken you know what....especially in lieu of him not allowing Step's comments when he allows idiotic comments. This just makes him look really bad imo.

I have sent him a message to determine whether I am banned from his blog or if there is some strange technical glitch that has repeatedly stopped me from posting just to his blog. I am familiar with the blog software they use to approve comments. Sometimes comments do fall through the cracks, but it seems strange to me that his blog is the only ones where my comments don't show up.

I saved this last comment I made because I thought it wouldn't get published.

I've often had discussions with various Chronicle writers about different subjects, sometimes heated discussions, but none of them have ever not published what I wrote in their comments. I like vigorous discussion of things and try not to make it too personal. I really do want to encourage fair and accurate reporting at the Chronicle because that's how most people know what happens with local teams.

I published everything that was put on my blog except for the overtly disgusting ones. Cowboy Bill Lamza once accused me of publishing something he wrote to make him look bad. He wrote something about how I should be baking cookies or some other stupid barefoot kitchen crap, and so it was a comment and I published it. And then people dogged him for it. And then he wrote a comment that suggested that I just published the comment HE WROTE to make him look bad.

I totally agree. He pretty much (without saying it) told the media to go stuff themselves, because he's here to play football and not play into their media created soap opera.

As for "The General," what has he done lately? He goes on 610, repeats stuff VERBATIM from the internet and ESPN, tools around with Anna Megan (don't get me started) and then spends most of his time complaining about nasty e-mails and texts (and proceeds to give out texters' phone numbers over the air).

I often make comments in Chronicle blogs. Up until recently, they all get published. Except for on Justice's blog. I guess I am on his bad list.

Here's what I wrote that he or someone else there was too chicken to publish. (Which is amazing, because they publish all sorts of ugly irrational stuff):
I think Justice is a Skip Bayless wannabe. A man with a massive napoleonic complex and reporting nothing but the National Enquirer of sports talk. I wrote he and the Chronicle one time 2-3 years ago..it was published in the Chronicle..in regards to how he consistently backed Casserly, despite his draft record. He wrote me back and spun the article completely explaining how the drafts weren't all bad. I wrote himback with the track record and where each guy was and what picks we had lost. Fast Forward months later and he writes an article about Casserly basically saying he is the anti-Christ of Texans football. He has done the same with Purpura. He flip flops to suit his weekly agenda and to get his attention. Anyone with a smart and opinion to the contrary is ignored.

I've been one that has always stuck up for The General because at least I get to hear football but lately I sense a bitterness that doesn't sit well with me. I tried to call in last week when he was on 610...never had done this before...to see if he had ever run into my best friend that is the asst special teams coach with the Jags..first year. I had written him about the guy earlier in the year because it was a good story. I was on hold and hour and never got on. I got the feeling by the screeners question that it wasn;t the type talk they wanted. Anytime anyone questions the Texans play calling or coaching though he goes off and basically tells people they are stupid. I'm just losing some respect.

Steph, I think you're ignoring the obvious. They were THREATENED by you when you had your blog there. Your articles were better researched, more interesting, and WAY better written. You made them look bad. And posting your blog response would just make them look bad again. Childish behavior, to be sure.

Actually, some of the columnists there were encouraging of what I wrote and were regular readers. The editor I worked with wanted me to continue what I was doing, but truly it took too much time. And when your fun unpaid hobby starts feeling like work, well then, it isn't something you should do any more.

Sportswriters do work very hard. And they write lots of words. Some of those words will be thoughtful ones, and some of those words are going to be assigned by an editor and pushed out before deadline. I think it would be one of those jobs that it would be hard to have a normal family life with.

The sorts of criticism that they get can get overwhelmingly personal and ugly. They also get to do some neat stuff that regular people don't get to do.

I like what I do for FanHouse because it is a way to educate a more national audience about the Texans. An audience that may not know much about the team. There is so much misinformation or exaggeration out there, that it is nice to be able to use their audience reach as a way to put some information and analysis out there that maybe people can't find otherwise. And maybe have a dialogue with other people interested in the team. And I'll keep doing that as long as it remains fun and they let me.

Default Re: Mario Melt Down?

On the subject of Marios intelligence, please ty to remember that your average NFL player isn't an M.I.T. EE. He may not be that far off of the
norm in the smarts dept.
Also remember that there's still few sports subjects in Houston, TX that get more attention, even now, than the 2006 NFL Draft and the top 3 picks of that Draft. Justice and his pals are still trying to sell newspapers, and now Justice also has a daily radio show, on which he repeated this whole story he's reportedly written in his blog.
These kinda stories have got to hurt a reporters access to players on the team, but maybe Justice didn't have that much to lose in the beginning anyhow.

Luckily football players don't have to be very academically smart to be good at their jobs.

I'm not sure why Justice couldn't atleast give us a quote or example of how/why he said Mario had a melt down. I can't help but feel like he and McClain love to stir the Mario/VY pot every time an opportunity arises.

Mario Williams is a young guy from a small town in North Carolina.

It is not easy being on TV if you are someone not trained to do that sort of thing. I think a lot of game shows bank on the fact that regular people lose IQ points when a camera gets a foot from their face.

I have to say I'm more impressed when someone is personable and good on TV than I am critical when they struggle. Cuz it ain't easy.

My comment was intentionally not published on Justice's blog due to him taking issue of things I wrote about his work last year.

Am I the only one that finds it absolutely hilarious that he won't publish my comment in a blog where he is criticizing twenty-something year old professional athletes for being "testy," "unapproachable" and "prima donnas?"

Just because someone speaks slowly or not as crisp as a highly trained and experienced speaker, does not mean they are less intelligent in my opinion. AJ isn't the best speaker in my opinion, but I am not going to base an opinion on his intelligence due to that.

Humans are such emotional creatures and so judgemental for reasons that are so irrational. Just look at the concept of love, it has more to do with what someone looks like than who they really are. Look at the legal system and pursuading a jury.

We think we just hear with our ears, but we really hear more with our eyes!

Back to point, thinking through an issue logically and coming to a reasonable conclusion has nothing to do with speaking skills. They are two separate issues.

Two people could come up with the same analysis, but if the presenter has a stuttering issue, it's immediately discounted, disregarded, and/or ignored. A clean cut well spoken individual gets high marks instead and everyone goes, yeah! I call it the JFK effect. Not jabbing at JFK, but that guy got so much lee way because he looked good. If he had a stuttering problem, no one would have ever know who he was. He would have been irrelevant.

Life isn't fair, and neither are human beings...

I sometimes wonder what the world be like and the inventions that would come about if we weren't so hung up on looks and how well someone spoke.

EXACTLY. Smart has nothing to do with it. When you get in front of that camera, all bets are off. It has everything to do with the fact that Mario is not used to it. He will get there.

I would rather have a nervous Mario than a certain young QB with a huge temper.

Thats Garbage, his articles are garbage, and the editor who published it and will not publish your works is garbage.

He is a 20 something year old kid, don't go afte them. Unless you as a man can take it.

(I just realized TC is more of a man than Dick Justice)

TC Please share the email. You owe him nothing, and I would really love to see what he wrote. I have lost a lot of respect for Justice this year. He wants to entertain and be controversial more than inform.

Default Re: Mario Melt Down?

It's amazing that Justice has a job. His reporting is biased, his behavior is childish, and he is unable to form his own opinions on anything. Sort of like when he blasted the Astros with the infamous gravestone image and then tried to be all cute and clever about how he "spurred them on" or some horsetrash.

He's Richard Justice and I am just a Chronicle subscriber and a sports fan. His blog, his rules.
Not only does that take holding a grudge and prima donna to a whole different level, it is the dumbest da*n thing I've heard in all of my put togethers. Justice needs to be put on some kind of medical get over yourself leave of absence.

You should forward his comments to the Chron editors and let them know the vindictive and disrespectful behavior of one of the "columnists." That is total b.s. and he should be called out for such petty actions.
