Is anyone else?
I've been getting agitated as of late with all of the local DC media: Washington Post, Chris Miller, and ESPECIALLY CSN as a whole.
I guess the main reason I'm hating on the Washington Post is because Mike Wise soemtimes says the most idiotic things (but you already knew that), and sometimes I don't quite agree with the sentiments of Michael Lee.... Mike Wise is saying we should go after another veteran...... NO!
But who really pisses me off is Chris Miller and the CSN "Wizards Insiders". They're a broken record in that they REALLY want us to draft Alex Len, because they're Maryland-ites who, like most Maryland fans, think that Alex Len is one of the best players in the nation (they seem to think he was better at his college game than Mason Plumlee and Nerlens Noel even..... and let's face it, Maryland fans are already delusional in that they think Dook and UNC are their rivals). Chris Miller I think needs to shut up with his constant sentiments that the Wiz should take a look at Len at number 3. Now I just saw another article on CSN today saying that we need ANOTHER veteran. Again, as with Mike Wise..... NOOOOOOO! We have veterans on the team... And in particular, Nene has a lot of playoff experience with the Nuggets. If we were to (for some reason) resign Jason Collins, he has FINALS experience. We cannot keep signing these veterans who aren't going to give you much, and not for very long. And I think my fellow Redskins fans knows exactly what I'm talking about: Deion Sanders, Donovan McNabb, etc. etc. And I'm wondering WHY they think we need more veterans. We need to continue building our young core. And quite frankly, you talk about these veterans "knowing what it takes" in the playoffs..... I think the Pacers have proved otherwise in that they only have one player on their roster (benchwarmer) who's every played in a conference final game, and look how the Pacers have done. John Wall will continue to keep building himself as a leader, and once we get to that point, guess what, after game 1, you can say you have experience. But that's just the playoffs. They see adding veterans as a way to win now. But in reality, we need to think winning in the future.
So that brings me to Bullets Forever. BF knows what their talking about a million times over CSN, and I don't think we really have a "we have to win NOW" mentality on BF, in fact, I've seen people completely disagree with that sentiment in that it's just Ernie's way to keep a job. And BF doesn't come up with unrealistic scenarios like CSN and WP constantly do (did you guys see Mike Wise say we should try to trade for Melo? NYK would hang up as soon as him name was mentioned).
The only other place I'll trust for my Wiz analysis (when they rarely talk about it) is 106.7 the fan, in particular Holden and Danny. I guess that's mainly because they share the same hate for Ernie as I do and I love to hear them rip him, but they have pretty good insight otherwise too.
Sorry, guys. This was a rant and I rambled quite a bit. Probably not even worth a FanPost honestly. But I wanted to get the steam off of my chest in that I'm getting tired as hell of some of the local media, PARTICULARLY ComcastSportsNet. Not sure what you guys thoughts are on the local media, but I, for one, am getting tired of some of the outlets.
