    Not sure but he seems prolific. Couldn't disagree with him more if I tried on the first one he wrote a week or so ago but this last one is a solid if not lengthy piece. I don't mind reading the the longer ones if they are well done.

    Tim is an awful person to have a conversation on the board with, since he NEVER relents on any of his points... EVER.. turning it more into him preaching at you

    it's kinda like when you're a kid, and you have a curfew time... but your bus home broke down, so you end up being late... and your dad gives you shit.. and no matter how valid your reason is, it goes in one ear and out the other because he's in a shit giving zone

    but, Tim is extremely knowledgable and well written... i do appreciate his viewpoints on things even if i dont always agree, and sometimes he can get long winded..

    good for him though.. i wish him success in his new role

    Does this mean that if we want an article posted on the front page, just write it up and send it to the mods?

    Anyone else read the comment sections from some of his articles?
    It's pretty hilarious how many people take issue with, and are almost offended by, his very strong (arrogant?) way of expressing opinions.


    And while I absolutely respect his conviction, I really can't stand the way he tries to belittle anyone else who tries to disagree with him.
    He really hasn't changed a bit.

    But Good for him for expanding the readership for his "the Picket Fence" blog.
    He gets conversations going, and generally brings together the entire readership against him. Lol

    Sorry about the delay in replying to this.

    First up, we were looking for some writers to write during the slower part of the season, and Tim W. was a good candidate. You might disagree with him, and his style of arguing isn't always friendly, but the guy is knowledgeable (albeit stubborn to the point of annoying). He's done well writing his pieces (and I'm sure he'll improve on the podcasts).

    If you want an article published on RR, you are free to send it to Blake or myself - [email protected] or [email protected], and we'll definitely review it and give you feedback. We have an account called "Prospect" (think Sons of Anarchy) on the main site which is exactly for this. No guarantees, but it's a good start.

    Again, sorry about the delay.
