You can find it and Bohn's new "Throwin' you a Bohn" at cubuffs.com
"...don’t hide behind some goofball name like Ralphie2000"
That's obviously aimed at Rrraaalph3000.
I laughed at that too.
I did enjoy the bit on Henderson's article.
And Buffwings, for Chrissake, note the part about the 10 wins remark!
:lol: I did not catch that.
I heard DH's comment in context. DP is doing his job, which is damage control. But that is pure spin, IMO. DH said don't go to the boards, those people are the scum of society. He didn't qualify it in any way. For DP to say that "Somehow all Buff fans got insulted" inferring anyone insulted is being overly sensitive is disingenous.
Where I come from, if you run your mouth and say something stupid about, or to someone, you be man enough to make amends. That is DH's responsibility in my book.
I'm really past it. It did kind of piss me off to hear the HC equate me with the scum of society because I'm interested enough to be part of an online community focused on CU FB. In my book, DH burned a gigantic amount of goodwill to vent his spleen on this issue. Pretty foolish thing to do, but so be it. I'm still a CU fan, and I'll be one long past DH's tenure, however long that is. BTW, I hope it is a long tenure because that means the Buffs will be winning a lot of games....
He later added this.....
Spin is what Plati is best at --- that's his job after all.
That and talking about a bunch of worthless crap [Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding - are you serious?] in his random blog.
Easy filler for his blog. I just skipped past that. I could care less about Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding.
Cool, Plati ran my question (paraphrased) about the Chuck Fairbanks logo - I asked him about it when there was a dispute over its incept date (1979).
Anyways, those of you disparaging Plati may want to think twice about it. He's very important to the University and to the football program - an ally, not a "spinster" or the like.
I'm not dissing DP for doing his job. But say what you will, he is spinning the whole scum of society comment by DH. I think as the SID, he should have DH's back, and PR is part of the SID job. I have no argument with what DP is trying to do, and I wish there had been more PR savvy during the scandal that wasn't. Overall, I think DP does a good job and he should stick up for the AD.
DH should, IMO, clarify what he said if he was really only after certain posters. I don't think it matters much now, it is pretty far down the pike, and whatever damage, if any, has already been done.
Lets see, DH called anonymous message board posters a bunch of low life scum or something? How can any of us disagree with that?
Any PR is good PR...:lol:...signed the now famous & one and only Rraalph 3000
I agree about the DH comments. Foolish and uncalled for.
As for Plati spinning for him, I'm sure that's part of what's going on. But it also fits in well with Plati's long-time attitudes about message boards and the posters on them. Anybody who has heard the story of Smitty and Netbuffs and their battle with CU and Plati in particular knows that the attitude Plati had in that column is nothing new...
Yep- I'd say that's just the same old Plati that he's always been.
Dave Plati is a good guy and one of the few constants in our program over the last 25 years. We are lucky to have somebody that loves the program and its participants. That guy can name dang near every player over the last 30 years and will do anything for any one of those guys. If anybody wants a piece of Plati, come talk to me first. If you are still ambulatory, you can take your shot. My money's on me.
"A piece of Plati?" Maybe its time to ditch the "pink" suit.
how long until every CU board has a poster/troll called Ralphie2000?:wow:
Lighten up, Francis.
you lighten up. Lefty. Plati is loyal to a fault. He doesn't deserve cheap shots when he is battling the hendersons and kizlas to get CU positive press.
Care to point out any cheap shots I've taken at DP? Last time I checked, I'm free to comment how I see fit. And if somebody says something I disagree with, I don't insinuate I'm going to give them a knuckle sandwich.
I don't really give a crap what you post. but take your own advice and don't tell others either.
Couldn't find any cheap shots I gave DP, huh? That's because I didn't take any. In fact, I was complimentary towards him in posts appearing above. He's doing his job. WyoBuff's post just struck me as over the top. Obviously he feels strongly DP is doing a good job. I've got no problem with that. Why you're on my back telling me to lighten up is a mystery to me.
Either way, have a nice evening.
You are correct on Dave Plati. He is a good guy. You are right, he knows just about everyone who has suited up for the Buffs and will do anything to help them at any time. He is simply doing the job the way it should be done in this situation. He is as true to the Colorado Football program as anyone.
I think violence is an underrated alternative dispute resolution device. : )
I just read all of the posts here. I guess it's time to throw out the peace pipe and have everyone smoke a little of it.:smile:
Take care, everybody.
I disagree...and I'll kick your *** if you say different.:smile2:
Peace. I'm done with this thread and offer the olive branch to all concerned, or a puff on the peace pipe, whichever you prefer.:canabis:
I'll go with the pipe, bro. It was all in good fun!!! Also, don't be too hard on Fla, he and I go way back and are part of an ancient brotherhood of sorts that must defend the other. He's got my back and I'll always have his.
I'll take the branch, olives are good on my sub.
