it's annoying when the us media says things about us that are obviously not researched, especially stupidities like Bosh will leave Toronto in the summer and go to Orlando because nobody likes to play in Canada (as some Orlando newsguy said last season). That kind of things. Or when the team that won 47 games last season was marked by some to not even make the playoffs, and for the most absurd reasons. But regardless, when you attack somebody's article, you should make the effort and comment on some specific points, dismissing something without arguing is very unprofessional.

That being said, I like Doug's blog, even though he's very careful to stay away from controversy - but that's understandable, his livelihood depends on players and coaches talking to him, without that he has nothing to do. He's not one of those espn analysts that can say anything because they don't depend on a team for their stories.
