    Congrats, by the way. Apparently Mike is getting a promotion at ESPN, if I read that right.

    Today's Reiss column...

    New England Patriots Blog - ESPN Boston

    Well? Enquiring minds want to know...

    I'm aware of who Rodak was/is on here - but unfortunately I promised to keep it a secret so I can't tell you :cool:

    there's about twenty regular posters here I'd much rather read or listen to in the media than 90% of the dreck that's out there now.

    Another part of that comment would be that Reiss is/was a regular reader here. At least enough so to be impressed with Rodak.

    ok…ok..stop with the PM's.
    I know my awesome posts may lead one to think that I am Mr. Rodak or Mr. Reiss himself…but sadly, the PittPatriot cannot take credit for this.




    I kid. No one PM'd me on this subject.

    Absolutely agree with this.

    Despite some of the epic meltdowns here after Pats losses, this is still my favorite online community. Mostly respectful posts and debates, and the comments are almost always reasonable.

    Glad to see one of our own making it in the pros, as it were. :D

    Musta been his meat packing plant link that sealed the deal. Most hilarious example of research overkill I'd ever seen.
    As you recall, last fall, The Chiefs had an incident of a player going postal. Over here on Patsfans, a fan with an inquiring mind wondered whether The Chiefs would implement a "business as usual" approach in the wake of the tragedy. They had a home game to host the next day at Arrowhead.

    Enter Deus.

    He takes it upon himself to say - 'Well, when a similar event happened at a (wait for it because it's a duzy....) meat packing pant in California, this is what they did. Deus then actually posts a LINK to the story.
    I've been on the floor for almost an entire year over Deus' meat packing plant link.
    Think about it for a minute. The sociological angle is raucously hilarious. Deus thought what goes on at a meat packing plant office (probably housed in some corrugated aluminum trailer in the middle of a dirt packing lot) is direly relevant to the public relations of an NFL franchises' front offices housed in a massive glistening stadium.

    Deus replied to my post with a "hey, it was relevant, so I posted the link."
    Yes, sure it was relevant in an around the way degree. Sure, if you equate some jag meat packing plant guy losing it and how the mustached fellas in their short sleeve button downs dealt with the aftermath in the trailer out in the parking lot...
    and Deus equating that with a millionaire world class athlete going off and the reaction of a well-oiled public relations machine of a professional sports franchise.
    Man, when you add that context into the equation, Deus link becomes outlandishly rip-roaringly hilarious.

    I totally believe he posted that meat packing plant link with a straight face. That's what makes it so damned funny.

    To be wholeheatedly honest, Deus's meat packing plant link on a freaking football fansite (of all places) was the funniest thing I'd seen anyone do on the internet in years. That's years.
    Here's to you, Deus. I'll now be taking 10 percent of your salary to keep this embarrassing incident under wraps.

    All in all, Deus, that was some crack reporting alright. I'll never forget you for it.

    The latter two are ruled out due to age. One is also disqualified due to general crankiness.

    Congrats to the member. I can't say I'm shocked by this because there are probably 10 or so members on this board that do come off with some pretty spectacular stuff consistently. I think many have known that there are media members that lurk here that find a lot of insight in the world of sports. My guess is it doesn't stay a secret for long who the member is.

    Well I think this is pretty cool. Congrats to Mr. Rodak for working hard in pursuing a career in sports journalism and now -landing the gig-. As the field is so weak right now, seriously, I sometimes want to gag when I read the dreck that comes out of the boston media coverage of our sports teams. Well, it NEEDS improvement! Thanks for hopefully providing that from here on out.

    Mike Rodak is a guy in his 20s who writes well and at least somewhat knows what he is talking about. I suspected at first it could be me, but based on this description, I am ruled out on all accounts.

    Even with this knowledge, I am still about 15% sure that I am Mike Rodak.

    BTW, I don't think it could be Deus or mgteich. I think both were around before Rodak's parents allowed him to use the Internet unsupervised.

    Well, I thought I'd be clever and search the member lst for "rodak." Because, you know, we all use our real names. Came up with a bobrodak; pretty sure it's not Mike based on posts. But there aren't a whole lot of Rodaks out there so Bob: if you're listening, help us out. ;)

    So my guess of "IamMikeRodak" would be wrong?

    It wouldn't be "Alisonlovesbrady" would it? (sorry to the newbies who don't get this joke. Google it. And the old folks who get the reference and don't think it is funny... Well, you might be right.)
