As a former newspaper editor and reporter, I believe credibility is built up over a period of time. Right or wrong, new media is viewed through a different lens. I will say I find some blogs and online media very flippant about the validity of information, more interested in rumor mongering and throwing names around.

Keep up the good work and can't wait for more news – particularly for Taillon and Allie.

I received a few questions asking who I was referring to yesterday, and I responded to those questions. Mentioning that a person in my situation gets little respect isn't a complaint, it's just stating a fact. The truth is, because of that fact, I take the cautious approach. I can't explain the cautious approach without mentioning the fact.

In short, I have little to gain by saying “I hear Player A is very close to signing” and a lot to lose. So for those who asked who the players are, or why I didn't mention anyone, that's why.

Do what you started to do and keep up the good work and hopefully good things will come to you . Whiners never win.
