    I'm not knocking the quality of the above posters (well, in 12 out of the 13 cases), but this worries me about the future of SportsJournalists.com. The youngest and brightest of this generation are not doing their duty — they are not slacking!

    This has to be the weakest freshman class ever on SportsJournalists.com. For example, not one of the 1,295 below this motivated baker's dozen has even once brought me a Leinie's! This is unacceptable!

    As a paid subscriber, I demand that better recruits be brought in! This is freaking SportsJournalists.com! If you newbies can't hang, go post on Wenalway.

    This may be recruit tampering.
    An investigation will be forthcoming from the NCAA.

    Definitely a recruiting violation. CutleryWriters.com just put BYH Football_Bat on blast.

    I'm trying to do my part, but no one else wants to debate the merits of covering junior varsity cricket.

    You really have a lot of time on your hands don't you ;) ;D ?

    I blame the Post the Song Thread for the number of posts.

    Uh, I've discussed this before.
    People have many reasons for changing their names. Sometimes it is a job threat. Bringing up past names is a form of outing and is quite heavily discouraged.

    Holy crap! Write-brained is almost a full member?

    It took me over three years to do that. Congrats.
