The Plati thread got me thinking.

    I know, Truly Superior always tells me that is a bad thing.:sad1: The comment about Bohn's "Your Team" campaign being completely derailed by Plati's remark needs to be emphasized. I would love to here a "Your Team, You're Fired!" chant.

    I thought the same thing...I won't be surprised if Bohn scolded Plati after Plati made those comments. I know for a fact that there are many SIDs who are trying to get SID jobs. Plati is replaceable.

    I'm really intermittant on the board this week as we're in a Tuscan villa with very little internet access and haven't read the Plati remarks yet.

    But barring something shocking, Plati is not replaceable.

    As I mentioned elsewhere, I can understand Hawk and his crew going into the bunker mentality and basically saying eff you to the fans at this point. They're on their deathbed and they know it. Clamming up and blaming others is a normal psychological defense mechanism. However, it seems absolutely bizarre to me that someone like Plati, who has been her through a number of changes and will likely continue, would start displaying an eff you attitude to the fans and supporters of the University. There are ways he can be loyal to the AD without basically saying "you'll eat the cat poop and you'll like it!" to the fans.

    I guess Hawk is like the damn flu or something.

    And, as the SID, it's his specialty (and a main reason why his job exists) to manage that message.
    When Plati's aim starts giving Eric Goodman a run for his money I start to wonder what's going on in the athletic dept.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Don't think we will get the cheer leader or PA support though.

    I think we ought to be able to find a sports stats nut with a short fuse and a penchant for insulting his team's fanbase under just about any rock.

    Plati has used up his usefulness. Hell, hire Burianek or Meadows. Either one would do just fine, and wouldn't take it upon himself to insult anybody who crosses his path.

    Somebody texted CJ and Klatt and said they were tired of the AD handing them a turd and telling them it was a truffle...and then getting snarky when somebody complained. That IMO, is the best analogy I can thnk of.

    You could replace Plati with an intern. Plati is a self absorbed, arrogant jackass. I've held my tongue on my feelings about the guy for the last time. No school should put up with a SID who insults the fanbase at every opportunity. 15 minutes of fame? Really? How about you go shut your freaking pie hole, asshat. Don't you have a media guide to print?

    I'm steamed right now. Can you tell?

    Actually, new NCAA rules, the media guide is electronic only I think.
