    Once the sun screwed up the message board they lost their base and no one wanted to use their pay wall. Couldn't keep their high priced journalists (loosely defined). I'm with ox on this one: find some young journalists who can write and actually like the Gators!

            This is the kind of job that could get a young journalist exposure and a great stepping stone to something bigger - even Crucial moved up after being there. I would think there would be some ambitious guys willing to do it for peanuts. Literally peanuts.

                  Probably my comment was tongue in cheek. Is it bad that while I gave him hell, part of me feels bad for the guy. Sure seems like a cash strapped failing newspaper ushering him out the door. Hey Robbie you make less than Pat so you get to stay...for a while. Now get off your butt and do some work.

                  Inside scoop. He could no longer fit into the cubicle and they refused to enlarge it, so he said he’d just resign and they called his bluff.
                  You heard it here first!

                    There's no way they can keep Robbie too. No way.

                      Robbie volunteered to come out of pocket to enlarge his cubicle and keep his $23,000 salary.

                          Somebody who knows journalism should comment. Cover's partisan football comments would increase Sun readership and put a few bucks in covers pocket.

                          That's like asking Grantland Rice to write for a monthly local rag. :D

                            Does anybody even want to live in a world without Dooley's playlist?

                            We might as well all commit suicide TBH.

                                You actually watch that crap? I get 30 seconds in and want to shoot myself in the face.

                                Honestly, the only thing worse than his awful prose is his embarrassing videos.

                                  I am at a loss now.

                                  Where will I go now if I want to be lectured on how to be a subservient gator fan that never questions anything that UF does?

                                  Where will I go to be called a gidiot because I think that a beatnik is not a good fit for the UF football program?

                                  Where will I go to read about UF sports that only focuses on the messaging that UF endorsed?

                                  Where will I go to have bullish!t woke politics shoved down my throat in the middle of a sports column?

                                  Maybe they can find a young, delusional but arrogant columnist that UF has indoctrinated to continue with his worthless legacy.

                                  Then again maybe I will just continue to ignore the Sun like I have for the last few years

                                      Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
