You were simply too smart for me.
They have some good posters and some horrific ones... it is entertaining that 'Joe' will defend an opinion (or delete it) "Joe" is rarely wrong (in his own collective mind.)Also entertaining to see how the J___-esque posters are dealt with... (Thomas 2.2 is a mirror image of someone here.) User accounts get deleted often.... There's even a little 'hate' from Joe about PR (which is a fan-thing, not a professional sports reporting thing btw) that surfaces every now and then.Take it for what it is... a Bucs news source.
If you don't like the site, don't go there. Personally, as a ridiculously rabid Bucs fan misplaced here in St. Augustine, I think it's great for all Bucs fans that we have so many options out there to get our fix for Bucs news. We all know espn isn't gonna satisfy that or heck even mention us unless they're forced to. In my opinion JBF and PR are both great resources for Bucs fans and are both very good at what they do, Bucs lovers should just enjoy having what a lot of other teams don't. Living this close to Jax I can tell you Jags fans don't have anything even close to the quality JBF or PR to get their news from. On a side note I have gotten a post deleted on JBF just for asking WTH C.I.T.S. meant and disagreeing with his take on signing Asomugha. It's OK though I had my big boy pants on and didn't get my feelings hurt. Having multiple outlets for Bucs news is NOT a bad thing
If you don't like the site, don't go there.
And Joe doesn't express "hate" towards PR. Joe's got a lot of respect for Scott and Charlie and surely is on speaking terms with those guys. The sites are two wildly different animals, despite what some try to say. As for PR, there will never be a shortage of people wanting what they offer..
As for being unprofessional in commenting here, well, the day I'm too "professional" to engage with Bucs fans of all opinions is the day I've gotten way too full of myself and deserve to be run out of town.
As one of the Joes, allow me to respond.1. They have a limited press pass, which allows them a tiny bit more access than a regular fan.I guess you can define "tiny bit" however you want, but locker room access is quite a bit more than a regular fan. In addition, JoeBucsFan.com has been credentialed for NFL events multiple times. 2. The constantly mislabel their articles to attract more views.JoeBucsFan headline style conforms to traditional journalism ethics and, like any headline, is designed to suck readers into the story, not attract views. Since JoeBucsFan doesn't ask readers to click around the site to read anything. The "view" has already been made once a reader is there. So there's nothing to attract more views. It's too late once you're on the home page.3. They have more news about the Rays than the Bucs.Obviously, that's inaccurate. 4. Even JBF is looked down upon by the local fishwraps.That's funny. The Sarasota Herald-Tribune has quoted JoeBucsFan multiple times. And one of the big local papers actually expressed serious interest in partnering with JoeBucsFan.com. And one of the JoeBucsFan writers has been working for the Tampa Tribune since the 1990s. 5. They take quotes out of context consistently, causing mis-information.Not true.6. They talk in 3rd person.Plenty of people hate it. We've been doing it since Day 1 when nobody was reading, so at least its consistent. 7. They have no content, they get their news from the same place we get our news, they just offer up bad opinion and sensationalism on top of it.Not accurate. JoeBucsFan produces orginal content. 8. They have poorly written articles.If you think so. 9. Their draft coverage was terrible, they hyped up Pawlowski. But Pawlowski hardly knows what he's talking about. PR has the best inside draft coverage, year in and year out.Funny, Mark Dominik said on WDAE that he reads Pawlowski's draft coverage regularly. 10. You feel slimey when you read it, or accidently read it. It feels like some New Jersey mook sold you something out of his jacket. You feel ripped off. I don't even pay or go to the site, I just accidently come accross the articles, and I still feel jipped.Sorry to hear it. JoeBucsFan doesn't sell content. In 2009 and 2010, a $10 NFL draft coverage subscription was sold. ...Thanks for all the love.
JBF are too frauds. Its funny Steve says that they get in the locker room. My friends at the Bucs have told me that they are credentialed for only the Bucs home games, and that was Jonathan Grella throwing them a bone. They never are allowed in the locker room at One Buc Place like the rest of the media. They are not invited to press conferences and they don't have interview requests granted. The funny thing is how much the Bucs hate JBF. Throughout the organization front office, the few players that know who JBF is, the coaches, and PR department all think that JBF is disingenuous. They haven't forgotten that they called Mark Dominik - 'Mark Duminik'. Or Radio Raheem, Sergeant Winslow, or how they constantly referred to Josh Freeman as 'Bust in Waiting.' They have zero credibility and respect from the Bucs, and shouldn't get anything more from the fans.
