    Ah, the legend of Krystal Grow. Had it not been for her, a co-worker never would have gotten me onto this site.

    That line always cracks me up. Good job by the Cleveland guy getting it in. Someday our buddy Ace will make it that far too.

    And I'll take your Krystal Grow and raise you a Kate McDowell.

    Who dat? Did I miss something? I've been pretty active on the board since August but my memory's failing me on her.

    There's no way Feran put that in there because of this site, is there? Don't get me wrong, it would be hilarious if true, but c'mon.

    The hire of Doug Lesmerises pretty much shot any and all credibility this guy might have had.

    Not to be an ass, but the Chronicle belongs nowhere near the other three mentioned. In reality, the Plain Dealer is as good as the Chronicle, and that's not saying much, considering the resources both have.

    I've gotten a ton of PMs from people telling me how much they love it... If it's too gross for the consensus, I'll change it...

    I think it's amusing as hell.

    aw. how sad. i wonder if anyone here will get a PM from him now? i know several people got PMs from him when he first filed his suit and everyone here basically said he was an idiot.

    It's fine. Much less offensive, IMO, than many of the sig pics we've seen around these parts.

    It's not like I made it up or anything but I had that gif on my sig about a year ago.

    I'm so glad I finally know what the heck that reference was about. It predates my arrival on SportsJournalists.com.

    Now I realize this guy probably was an idiot and the fact that he got fired from his other job sure doesn't say much for him, but it's funny that we recently referenced the possibility of a white male suing a paper over something like this. This guy may have brought it on himself, but his story is exactly why you will rarely see it happen no matter how good a case the jilted candidate has.

    Failed lawsuit. Public ridicule. Now he may get stuck for the Plain Dealer's court costs, too? Oh yeah, and how much you want to bet he never gets another job in the business?
