    They're threatening to remind people he once coached the Knicks.

    That thread is classic SportsJournalists.com - focus on a "minor" element of the story and pretty much ignore the big picture - that being that Rick Pitino is an amazing and underrated coach.

    Anyone reading SportsJournalists.com for the first time looking for insight into a major sports story from people supposedly in the industry would come away sorely disappointed. With only "See what you get by living close to Christian Laettner?" and "They're threatening to remind people he once coached the Knicks" as pretty much the only take aways.

    Sadly - that person's opinion of SportsJournalists.com after reading a thread like that would probably be spot on.

    Given that you exceeded your quota on ignorant posts about 10 minutes after you first logged on, get off your soapbox.

    And now you think you're in a position to preach. Get over yourself, please.

    I figured what I need to. And you sure as hell aren't going to teach me anything.
