I have no idea why Will Perdue was on Mike and Mike this morning, but the guy started talking blogs and why they have no merit when out of nowhere Mike Greenberg came to defense of the emerging medium. Via Fanhouse....
"How much merit do these things have? They're just somebody's opinion," Perdue said. "These guys just write these blogs which is their opinion, next thing you know it becomes fact, and then we're talking about it because it's on some blog that's started by some guy that lives with his mother in an apartment in Hackensack, New Jersey."Wow. Finally someone in mainstream media gets it, and says it on air. I can't believe it came from Mike Greenberg though. I'm looking for the video now, but this is just shocking. Good for you Greenie.
"Yes, you should not take as gospel the things they say, but on some level everything is just someone's opinion," Greenberg said. "Everything I say on this show is just my opinion."
"When someone writes something nasty about us in the New York Post, that's really just one person's opinion, and when someone writes something nasty on a blog, that's also just one person's opinion," Greenberg said. "That opinion is no more or less valid than my own."
Oh and now people are adding cities to the parent's basement joke? Good lord some people are so unoriginal.
