I have noticed a lot of talk about the media on a number of boards and thought it would be fun to discuss who is good at their craft and who isn't. Here is my list in no particular order: The Good Michael Parente - My personal favorite. Does his job very well and I think he should get more opportunities. Jerome Solomon - Seems to have a lot of exclusive info. It took me a while to warm up to him but now I like him. Hector Longo - Kind of a clown but good at what he does. Jackie McMullen - Gets a lot of exclusives because of her rep and she's a tremendous writer. Tom Casale - Came in during the year for PFW and is doing a great job. Really knows his stuff and is one of the few who actually "analyzes" games from both sides. Mike Reiss - His reputation speaks for itself. His blog is the best thing going for Patriots info. Michael Felger - Most of the time. Don't like him as much on the radio and he's starting to get annoying but I still like reading his report card every week. The Bad John Thomase - I can't stand him as a football writer. He knows baseball but he isn't cutting it on the Patriots beat. Andy Hart - He's just a clown. He says things but never backs anything up and if you question him, he just calls the fans stupid. Great analysis. Dan Pires - Some people like him but I really can't stand him for some reason. Maybe it's just me. Tom Curran - I used to like Tom and I don't dislike him as much as some people but I feel he's gotten lazy with his writing over the years. Bob Ryan - Has great information and I don't mind listening to him but you know he always thinks he's smarter than not just fans, but everyone on the planet. Albert Brier - Maybe it's just his writing style that bothers me but his stories are so boring they put me to sleep. The Ugly Ron Borges - Hey, I don't mind if you don't like BB. Not everyone does but don't just say things to say them because you have a personal problem with the guy. That's not being a journalist. It's being an unprofessional idiot. Honestly, does anyone still read his garbage? Well, that's my list. I know I left a lot of people out so I'm interested in knowing what the rest of you think. We tend to spend so much time bashing Borges and a couple of other guys, I would like to know who you think is doing a good job and who rubs you the wrong way.
