    i beg to differ, my buddy. when t.j. covered the nfl, he was a pretty good guy. seemed to be fully aware he was a jerk in jersey. now? if people say he's back to being a jerk, i can't quibble. haven't run across t.j. in several years.

    For me, it's reading the observations of those good enough to work at the Plain Dealer.

    Good enough only in theory, sadly. :'(

    I know TJ slightly. I've shared beers with him and had arguments with him and I don't consider him a jerk at all. I didn't know him back in Jersey, but I know there's lots of shit I did when I was 25 that I wish I hadn't.

    Jerk, yes. Satan, no.

    A friend's wife sometimes says, "We're all assholes sometimes and today's your day."

    You mean someone was a dick during their younger days in this business? Stunning...

    I've never met the guy, but I have close friends who know him well and don't speak too fondly of the guy...

    He's still one of the most interesting people in this profession. Parking a golf cart to prevent an athlete from leaving the locker room... Legendary...

    The Big Lead is a great site...

    Being a dick is one thing.

    Hanging two co-workers out to dry for something you did goes a bit beyond dickishness in my book and is hard to blow off as a "youthful indiscretion."

    Sounds like hero worship? Huh? We asked questions we thought were interesting ... he answered.

    Q: Readers love the grocery store bagger ...

    How do you know? Has there been a market survey on this? Anyway, way to lead off a hard-hitting interview.

    Q: You ruled on Around the Horn ...

    Come on, Biglead! It may not have been the biggest blowjob I've read, but you certainly at least unzipped the guy.

    I gotta agree with Frank. Hey, biglead, if you like the guy admit it. Plenty of others have.
