    Are you *******ing kidding me? He's won it FIVE times?

    As a former journalist, I think I just died a little bit inside.

    Dick Justice Sucks VY's sausage

    Giving this award to some highschool kid reporting in his school newspaper would give the award more credibility.

    Apparently, the association uses similar standards of evaluation as Bob McNair does.

    "Dick Justice is on the right track" -- association president

    So where are the people who are going to call us morons and defend Justice by citing his proud history of awards? (speaking on, McClain said this morning on 610 'you know, I was doing a lot of Googling and...' the wife and I looked at each other and laughed and I said 'ground breaking journalism research at its best.')

    I like Justice. It's funny that people hate him so much when it's obvious his blogs should be read as satire and nothing more. He laughs himself all the way to the bank when people freak out over his articles and blogs.

    If you think people hate him for his blogs (which are shamefully unfunny), then you haven't been paying attention.

    If it weren't for guys like Richard Justice, then the rest of us wouldn't know what good sports journalism is. Congrats to you Mr. Justice, a well deserved award for someone setting the standard to record lows. If it were a limbo contest, you would be world champion as no one can possibly lower the bar any further. I can't wait to see how well he does in the National Trolling Finals. I believe he is the favorite in the race.

    I think a lot of people that are upset by Justice also don't realize that professional wrestling is rigged, that it's a show, it's staged.
    Same with Justice, it's just a show and an attempt on his part to provoke, even annoy the reader. And now and then he'll also put something down in print which is real intelligent like his take on Bob Mcnair awhile back.

    Yeah he is a random provocateur and the only reason you thought he was real intelligent on that take was because he agreed with you. Throw enough darts and eventually one will hit a position you agree with. If he wants to have a one man show comedic satire act then have at it. He is a joke as a journalist.

    And why is this thread in this forum? I could care less about any info concerning Dick Justice. Bury this thread in one of the other forums.

    I think most everybody realized Justice hit the ole bulls-eye with his take
    on McNairs comments to the team about what his peers told him following the MNF loss to the Ravens. Didn't you ?

    If it's something most everybody realized then it was hardly astute. My personal view was it was typically spinning for controversy from Justice. Something to talk about. Players, coaches, owners say something positive in negative times. No revelation there.

    meh.....do not care. I don't go to the Chronicle's website anymore. There are to many folks here that post stuff as soon as it happens, so between Texanstalk.com and nfl.com I can get everything I need without soiling my computer or my brain by going to the Chonicle's site.

    I'm shocked that a group of elitists would give an award to an elitist.

    I remember that his piece on Bob McNair was poorly written. Attaching Bob's name to the end of every sentence isn't provocative-- it's an annoying gimmick.
