    So says longtime friend and NJ.com Devils beat writer Randy Miller:


    (I'm going to break from SportsJournalists.com style and refrain from "RIP" given the child-sex allegations that ended Conlin's career).

    Dominican children let out a great roar.

    Somehow I doubt there is going to be any great outpouring of sadness, because:

    1) Conlin failed to credibly mount the only effective response to the child-sex allegations, an emphatic declaration of "I. Did. Not. Do. It." Once the perp starts hemming and hawing and explaining and qualifying on that stuff, the game is over.

    2) He had a pretty pissy and disagreeable persona otherwise. Not too many people are going to be rushing to his defense based on what a warm and friendly guy he was.

    Fuck him, and fuck Drip or anyone else who has anything good to say about him.

    Boy, quite a different tone on this thread than when Bob Jelenick died five years ago. Has enough time elapsed for someone to rip him on that thread?

    I don't think there were any child sex allegations against Jelenic, although he certainly loved to assfuck his adult employees so nothing would really surprise me.

    Please keep my name out of your posts. RIP Bill Conlin.

    And, there you go.

    Predictable as ever. Drip wishes peace on a child molester.

    YF, this is someone I, a few others along here, had a personal relationship with.

    Well, I guess this means Drip isn't Bill Conlin.
