Which story are you referring to because you link a dozen of them?

I finally found it a few stories down the page.

Here is the link to the story versus the main page that has a bunch of them.

I was going to say it's not really hatred, but then I realized, yeah, it is.

Have any of you checked out Dickie J's latest blog entry and comments to some of the reader responses? Not to revive a redundant thread about a certified douche nozzle, but I recognized some of the names he responded as posters from here (most notably aj, and others, his responses to aj were particularly scathing and childish). He (Justice) did get called out on not knowing about Dunta's offer from the Texans that got turned down. Anyway if you feel like having anymore of a reason to scratch your head as to why Lil' Dickie was given any sort of award, read his responses. You would figure that of all places that would want to enforce the, "if you wouldn't say it in real life, don't post it online", rule it would be a newspaper telling it's employees not to piss off the readers & subscribers.

P.S. - he is still crying about Texans GM Rick Smith (an unhealthy obsession)

I think I'm on a spam block or something with him. For one of his previous blog entries, I responded... with something actually not anti-Justice... and the post was immediately rejected with some message about being blocked from posting on his blog or something. I haven't tried to post since then.

The guy is an idjit.

I don't know why maybe because it's kinda slow expect for the June, and Buster signings, but I read Richard the Idiots latest pile o'crap.

He stated that the Texans didn't have anyone up to the level of Peyton Manning or Ben Rothlesblunder. Are you freakin kidding me!!!!!! Apparently he hasn't heard a guy named Andre Johnson. Yeh yeh Manning isn't too shabby, but I'll take AJ over Little Ben any day. AJ is arguably the best reciever in the game today, and may prove to be one of the greatest ever. Ben Rothlesblunder isn't even a top 5 QB in the NFL.

OK, I don't know why I expect anything different from Justice, but he needs his Man Card pulled!!!!!!

I stopped reading his columns altogether. I occasionally read the blog after it's linked here. I just read his response to aj's comment and was floored. If you're not going to treat your readers' responses with a modicum of respect, why bother to comment on them at all?

Now, I'll include Justice's blog on my "Don't bother" list along with his worthless columns.

I doubt it gets posted but I shot back with this:

Wow, you really live up to your first name. You do know who that aj fellow you blasted for living in his mom's basement is right? Also, this is Houston, we don't have basements. But why would I expect you to know that when it appears you know nothing else that you speak of either. There are reasons why there is an entire thread over on some Texans MB dedicated to disliking you. I will give you this, your baseball stuff is spot on and enjoy that portion of your job. But maybe you should stop writing about anything football and let us professionals do that for you. Sometimes you make yourself look silly and I am embarrassed for you.

if job security is doing more than you are getting paid. I imagine (or hope) justice is on intern pay... geeze, I have read a few things by him, but if this is the best the chronicle can offer, I can't imagine anyone buying the paper for the sports columns... hell Kerrville paper has better writing than this.... Is it safe for me to compare Justice to AIG....too big to fail (in the eyes of the chronicle?)

With the availablity of so much information to the fans, the sports writers find themselves in a weird situation. You have writers who only cover games and disperse facts are fine, but most "columnists" don't take advantage of their situation.

They have access to the coaches, owners, players, etc. and see every game. Yet writers like Justice seem to want to write nonsense. Today he might write that Kubiak is an *****, next day he will write he is a genius. He has the axe to grind with Cecil Cooper, yet will write how the Astros clubhouse is in great shape. His columns are generally fluff pieces that are dictated by which way the winds are blowing at the time.

I will not discount the history the Justice has lived through. I won't discount that he actually does have knowledge, but I do feel that his ego writes his columns, not his brain. He wants his ego stroked so whatever he writes whatever he thinks the masses will agree with at the time.

I am going to cut and paste some of the comments here because in the past he has selectively altered and/or deleted what he has written:

Quote:
It seems like you are trying to start controversy where there is none.

[You are over-estimating my power. The Texans don't care what I write. They simply don't care. The players may care. I know the players look at the local media in two categories: (a) those that suck up to management and (b) those that don't give a damn whether Bob McNair and Rick Smith like them. Two prominent players are skipping the off-season program. That's worth commenting on. Team-building begins at this time of the year. Not only that, if players see two of the team's best players treated badly, they'll know what's in store for them. This seems to be an unnecessary fight.--Richard]

Richard, I think you should respond to Marc's comment.
You're an excellent writer, but your blog posts are too often reaching in order to be something more provocative. There's ample substantive sports stories to discuss. Stick to that.

[What did Rick Smith do to Dunta Robinson? He lied to him for one thing. Franchising a player limits his ability to negotiate. Players have very few chances at free agency. Beyond that, players have to feel good about the negotiating process.--Richard]

"When a player signs a deal, he's guaranteed only the signing bonus."
Not true. Eric Winston's base salary of $2 million in '09 is fully guaranteed (one example of many).
NFL teams (for a good while) have been using guaranteed base at the front end of contracts to supplement the 'total guaranteed' value of the contract.

I agree with Rich but I must remind everyone Mr. McNair is full aware of what was offered and what should be offered and Rick Smith is merely an extension of the man he works for, true enough he might advise the Boss on what to do but I assure it is within the scope of the onwer's desire to maintain a certain profit margin and if they can get by for now do it. They are not too concern about what type of team they place on the field as long as the Propaganda parade continues to give the fans the look of progress and giving hope to the future which will in turn put butts in the seats in which the price of just went up, it's all mapped out and planned and the envelope will be pushed to the very last second before thwy are forced to do something. Why on earth did they stick with that first group of pretenders that started up the team. With a tight fisted onwer you have to at least get the best coach possible who can make marginal players look good.

Uh, enlighten me, is voluntary some kind of Orwellian NFL doublespeak for mandatory? Since when is missing something that's voluntary a big deal? It's not like Ryans and Robinson have to prove anything to make the team. They're set. They have their contracts. I'd take a few weeks off, too. Air conditioned bubble or not, those team building two-a-days coming up in humid Houston August heat are going to be brutal.
As far as the money, DeMeco and Daunte could buy an F-16 fighter jet (14.6 mil a pop for the F-16A/B variants) with enough left over for airfuel and fuzzy dice, but short of boycotting the NFL entirely, what I, you and Richard Justice think and do about the system is irrelevent.

[Well, the Texans do have a new defensive coordinator, and there is that whole we're-a-team deal. I think you should write Gary Kubiak and ask if he thinks it's important for his players to be there. I'm guessing you won't find one person with the Texans that doesn't think these things are important. If I had to guess, I'd guess Dunta Robinson will be traded. I don't know if even Rick Smith has the guts to trade DeMeco. No matter what happens, Bob McNair will stand by with a blank look on his face.--Richard]

It seems to me that if Dunta decided to turn down 23 million dollars guaranteed, then he is not interested in staying in a Texan uniform. If he doesn't want to play here, then trade him. I'm not sure what the problem with DeMeco is but I think they should bend over backwards to get him signed, along with Owen Daniels.

[Where is this report that Dunta turned down $23 million coming from?--Richard]

You mean you wrote this whole thing having no idea that he got offered Chris Gamble money? You really need to start sucking up to Rick Smith!

McClain went further on the radio and said that the offer exceeded Gamble's (in guaranteed money). I'm sure I wasn't the only one that heard it.
p.s., Don't get fixated on total value. This isn't baseball. Report the guaranteed money and the years.

[The devil is in the details, my friend. I've been around NFL negotiations long enough to know there's a front side and a back side to the contracts. One side can spin an offer to be worth one amount, the other side another amount. I don't trust anyone's reporting except my own on this. In Washington, Charley Casserly twice leaked me numbers that were lies. When I printed different numbers in the newspaper, he never objected. I don't believe Dunta Robinson would have turned down Chris Gamble's contract, but I'm telling you I don't have the numbers nailed down. I'm not going to guess or say I've got numbers in the neighborhood. At some point, I'll get the numbers and give them to you. It'll be interesting to see how it plays out. All I'm certain of is that Rick Smith hasn't handled this deal well. He told the player one thing and then did another.--Richard]

I think you need to take a page out of John McClain's book. He isn't always nice, he isn't even always friendly in his blogs, but he's never been actively hostile to people like this. I wish the Chronicle had higher standards, and you should be ashamed of yourself for not having them, either.

[Be sure to sign up to follow me on Twitter. You'll like me better there. That's where my real personality comes out. I'm really a nice guy. I can't believe you wouldn't like my football stuff. I believe the building of a good team begins in three areas: O-line, D-line and QB. You don't believe in that? I'm sorry, but you sound a little peculiar. Anyway, I'm sorry for my offensive and inappropriate language. If a young man is forced to sit in his mother's basement and surf the Net all day, it's probably because he's unemployed, and unemployment is no laughing matter. I should be ashamed of myself. Hey, what's the deal with announcing you're Mormon? Just between us, that's a little too much information. While we're breaking things down, the Astros have 14 white folks, 7 Latinos, 3 African Americans and 1 Japanese on their 25-man roster. I know some of you keep up with that stuff. You're the ones that write in whenever I write about race to say you're color blind, but why aren't there more white boys in the NBA? You're the same ones that fought integration, not because you're racist, but because you thought it was a states-right issue. I was raised a Presbyterian, but it's too hard to spell. I'm sure Mormonism is a nice religion and all, but I'm just not curious about your beliefs, that is, unless you think a baseball team can have too much pitching or Rick Smith is competent. At that point, you're in my wheel house, and I won't be nice to you, either.--Richard]

No, actually I'm not a professional journalist. I don't have a credential and can't get one. I do what I do in my spare time because of the lousy local coverage we get for the Texans. To use a Paul Kuharsyism, I cover the coverage, which at times (like this) is brutal at best.
So let's sum up here. First you said the only guaranteed money in the NFL is signing bonus, which is not correct. Then you said no one had reported that Dunta had received Gamble money - which was wrong. Now you throw jr. high girl-like hissy fits and insults my way for some reason.... yep, Houston sure is lucky to have 'journalists' like you.

[The signing bonus is the only guaranteed money. Now the first-year salary and sometimes second-year salary can be represented as guaranteed money because of the salary cap hit, but it's not written into the contract as guarantee money. So you're wrong about that. Second, no one has reported the Texans' offer to Dunta Robinson. I've seen ''in the neighborhood of,'' but that doesn't tell you what the offer is. NFL contracts are complicated documents. The publicly reported figure frequently isn't accurate. I know agents that love leaking numbers to reporters when the actual value is far different. They're not lying exactly. They're spinning. Third, you represent yourself as a journalist, but you don't actually do any work other than read what others have and comment on it. Pretty good gig.--Richard]

If this becomes a "... contest" between Rick Smith and Demeco and Dunta, McNair needs to step in...and then show Smith the door. We need MORE talented players...not FEWER!

[You're wrong. Bob McNair is a great owner and Rick Smith is a great GM and Gary Kubiak is a great coach and the Texans are a great organization. People put way too much emphasis on winning and losing. The Texans don't have to win to be great. They're great because their fans love them and only troublemakers point out they've been 32nd in almost everything except profits.--Richard]

Re [RJ said]: "Now the first-year salary and sometimes second-year salary can be represented as guaranteed money because of the salary cap hit, but it's not written into the contract as guarantee money"
fyi, there are two lines on the Player Contract Information Form on the standard NFL player contract that show guaranteed base salary (in writing).
One line shows the amount of the Paragraph 5 salary guaranteed, if any, and another line shows the amount guaranteed, if any, relative to skill, injury or both. Both amounts are specifically written into the contract and are separately accounted from (but included in) the specified yearly cap amount.
I'm not a journalist, and I can't say that particular career path ever crossed my mind. I'm just a fan blogger that's followed the NFL and Houston sports for a long time and I do what I do in my spare time. btw, your flippant and condescending remarks make you look really bad, but none of that bothers me so I'm not sure what you're gaining by any of that. I'm actually quite shocked that you engage readers in such a way.
Looking forward to the information you promised on the Texans offer to Dunta so I can comment on it. Get to work, will ya?

[I spoke to Dunta's agent this morning. I'm sure you know him well in doing your research. Oh wait, you don't do any research. You steal from others and call it research. Nice gig.

There are specific guarantees written into contracts, but those are very unusual except for quarterbacks and some free agents.

All I know for sure is that Dunta is ticked off at how this has been handled and doesn't plan on showing up.There are zero negotiations going on at the moment, and then it comes down to how far does he push it. Would he be williing to miss a game check because he's mad at the GM? A smart GM would be continuing a dialogue, but Rick Smith may not be smart.--Richard]Posted by: aj at April 6, 2009 01:11 PM

He is really on a roll, he must be off his meds again.

Thanks, TC, for posting those. I pretty much stay away from his columns for the sake of my blood pressure and I don't want to give him the page hits. But it is interesting to see he is continuing to live up to his name. (Dick Injustice)

The guy is an idjit.
In the Chronicle blog system, I've been told I am to publish everything as is unless it contains vulgar language. Most people are cool but once in a while, some person will be disgusting. On those rare occasions, I contact the online editor to ban an IP address. It bans that address from commenting on any Chron blog.

I know of no other writer for the Chronicle who puts bans on people for non-vulgar posts. From what I've heard, Justice does it a lot. What his criteria is, I do not know. His blog, his rules, I suppose, though they are different than the rules I received on approving comments.

His bans used to be unofficial. Where he would just not publish posts that made him look bad for whatever reasons. But if you put someone on an IP address ban, the blog author don't even see the comment. It just doesn't get published and the commenter receives that message. So maybe at some time, you wrote something about Dan Riley or whatever that he really really didn't like. Then maybe he put you on IP ban even if you didn't say anything really bad.

BTW, it is worth noting this address:

Quote:
E-mail your questions and comments, complaints and suggestions to the Chronicle sports staff at

sptletters@chron.com
Also:

Quote:
carlton.thompson@chron.com
Though he controls who comments to his blog, he can't ban contact with everyone. If you have a complaint, if you find his comments unbecoming of a sportswriter for a major newspaper, the appropriate forum are those email contacts. If you want to be heard, be well-mannered, thoughtful and to the point.

People can make a difference one voice at a time if they care to.

Wow, just wow. Before I just thought the guy sucked but now I think he actually ought to get fired. The Chronicle should not countenance that kind of behavior.

How to write a Richard Justice blog post:

1.) Half-heartedly throw some "facts" that haven't been researched and are untrue

2.) Make commenters feel as though they should come back and defend their opinions by making childish retorts when somebody calls you out.

3.) Watch page hits roll in from e-rage.

4.) Collect an undeserved paycheck.

As expected, he has selectively deleted all of AJ's posts that made RJ look like he didn't know what he was talking about, but left all the insults in the post. It's deja vu! Or maybe deja poo!

Also deleted the part about speaking to Dunta's agent.

Weeehaaaaaa! Freedom of the press! Freedom of expression! Truthtelling! Yes, comrades, newspapers are all about the truth. The truth as only the gatekeepers want to tell it. Pravda for everyone!!!!

He has an opinion about the news and it is journalism. You have an opinion about the news and dare share it, well then you are STEALING.

I for one am not a stealer. I am a Texan.

Agreed. How can that be acceptable. I read the comments TC posted earlier today and was stunned. Some were beyond childish and were so unprofessional I'm not sure why people would want to be accociated with a sportswriter like that.

Dang, that's about the most voluminous series of posts I've ever seen in a single thread by someone. Has somebody got a personal vendetta with Richie ?
