Scott's Feedback Feedbag!

(I guess I took 8 months off between the first and second edition…which…well, kinda does sound like me, actually.)
For those who wonder why WCW went bankrupt, please bear in mind this brilliant piece of literature from a Bischoff apologist that I received tonight after the RAW rant. Further keep in mind that this was pretty much the nicest of the bunch, as one of them even called me a very bad word, which is not only rude, but anatomically impossible.
Somebody also named Scott writes...
"Just a comment regarding hiring Eric Bischoff as one of the worst things Vince McMahon could do. Ummm, Bischoff took WCW to number one for 2 years (yeah, it takes a real dumbass to do that)
If Bischoff is so stupid then why does the WWF need his idea to refresh their company? How do you answer that one, dipshit?
Oh, and could you try to get your rants out on time, for Christ's sake? For a guy who doesn't work a day job, that's pretty damn lazy of you to write it a day later."
First of all, this guy is obviously a 411 reader, because I'd like to think that I've brainwa...er...convinced my readers at this website of Bischoff's evil ways enough over the years that I wouldn't need to stress it again. But for those not paying attention the first million times I went over this, let's go point by point...
1) "Ummm, Bischoff took WCW to number one for 2 years" Bischoff may have gotten WCW to #1 from 96-98, but don't forget that he was a solid #2 (in more ways than seven) from 93-96 and from 98 until his unceremonious CANNING in 1999. I mean, great, very good, he spent hundreds of millions of dollars of someone else's money, signed all the WWF's talent and surpassed them at a time when the business was down all around. And what happened once the WWF actually got wise to how to compete with that? WCW was put out of existence in TWO YEARS. Gone. I'd say putting an entire company on the road to destruction outweighs some good buyrates in a limited period, wouldn't you?
2) "If Bischoff is so stupid then why does the WWF need his idea to refresh their company? How do you answer that one, dipshit?" Okay, #1 nothing has been "refreshed" yet. #2, they already "stole" that idea and it was called the InVasion, and they fucked THAT up, too. #3, Bischoff's "idea" has been around for many years before Bischoff was even a coffee boy for Verne Gagne. And, by the way, legally speaking it's Vince's idea now -- he bought the nWo trademark when he bought WCW. But hey, maybe Uncle Eric can use his "idea" when he starts up his kickboxing league or Matrats or whatever the hell he's doing to keep off the streets these days.
3) "Oh, and could you try to get your rants out on time, for Christ's sake? For a guy who doesn't work a day job, that's pretty damn lazy of you to write it a day later." Wow, I don't work a day job? I wish someone would tell my work that so I could have more time to work on the book. This is indeed a revelation, thank you for letting me know. Here I was just showing up every morning for nothing.
In short, thank you for your very eloquent and well-thought-out letter. As you can see, I've treated it with exactly the respect it deserves.
Next up, a word on Ozzy from Jesse Griffin...
"dude if its ozzy osbourne you speak of dont waste your money. i've been to a couple of ozzfests and its safe to say the guy is phoning it in.he reads the lyrics to songs he's been singing for like 30 yrs off of a monitor for christs sake.its just kind of sad actually.and when he talks(actually screeches) in person it makes ya wanna puke.besides he's like the biggest false icon rock has to offer. watch your vh1 and read up , the guy is totally the product of his wife.whatever.go look at my site www.synthetichope.cjb.net , hey man i read all your shit.adios-jesse"
Yeah, I know about Sharon's evil influence over him and I know the show is pretty shitty these days, but hey, I've never seen the guy live before so you've gotta live a little, right? Besides, it's OZZY. Sheesh. (It ended up being quite an awesome show, although it was weird because parents were bringing their little kids thinking that cuddly TV Ozzy was the same guy doing crazy three-hour concerts. Of note: Finger Eleven opening JUST before they broke big with “One Thing”.)
And on that note, unless another Bischoff-babboon writes me an insulting letter so I can use it as target practice, that's all I've got for tonight.
Btw, caught That 80s Show. Tinsley Grimes is FUCKING HOT. I will watch religiously just for her. (Well, I didn’t get much of a chance to watch because that show got cancelled almost right after I posted this.)
