Hello those at BrewCrewBall. I intend for this not to be a troll post. I also wouldn't have started a FanPost but I really didn't know where else to ask this.
See, my issue--I'm a St. Louis Cardinal fan living in Milwaukee. Thankfully due to the world wide net web and increases in modern technology I don't have to work hard to get my day-to-day Redbird coverage. However, I still do follow some of the Brewer stuff since I am, well, here.
My question--thoughts on the Brewer media coverage? Personally, I've REALLY disliked Jim Powell since the very first day I heard him (maybe this should be more about Powell). I find him arrogant and extremely condescending to Brewer fans. It's like he talks down to them. He's also an ungodly homer who never questions anything Brewer but everything, everything else.
I do remember his ridiculous comments about Tony LaRussa thinking he was smarter than everyone else by batting the pitcher 8th. Does he still use those same comments and same tone towards Ned Yost now?
I realize I didn't like Powell from Day One so I do not judge him fairly. As for Uecker--fine. The TV guys are fine. I really think the Journal does a good job with the Brewer stuff and even the national MLB stuff. And I am glad blogs like this exist--it gives me faith in Brewer fans. I will be honest, I never got that feeling from Brewer fans in my early days going to games at Miller Park.
Now, to address this silly notion of tailgating at baseball games........ :)
I'm sorry if this post is in the wrong area or taking the wrong way. I just don't have many intelligent Brewer fans--yes they exist :) in my circle of friends.
