I don't think Mike P has been here since gloating about Butch Davis' extension.

 
Because . . . .

I'll be the 1st to admit the O's coverage improved tremendously as soon as we really started sucking, but it has remained better.

Ninermike has ALWAYS been an avid supporter of the O.  He even ridiculed some of us when we complained that the Observer was the only daily paper in the state that refused to print (online and print version) the story about our baseball win over a highly rated UNC-chapel hill team.

He has always defended the O and their coverage of the tarholes.  He used to refer to us as "you Niners" until being called out about it.

 
Thank you for bringing that up, 49r9r. Besides, 'round here we refer to 'em as chapel hole and disturber or a new word 4ever have just helped me out with . . . the "Absorber" (how appropriate . . .they do suck).  ;D  I believe you have a little work to do with your title there, mikey.


And, I am sure "niner" mike sports one of these "tramp stamp", too. If he ain't already got one. ;D

You had a lot of time on your hands apparently.  If you went back and read all my posts it should be pretty obvious I'm a Niner.   I have defended the Observer in the past when I think they've been unfairly treated but I've always been objective.  Go back and read my posts and let me know if I've ever attacked another Niner.  You question my affiliation and attack me?  What kind of fan are you?  Seriously.


I really don't know what the coverage difference is between Charlotte and Chapel Hill but I'd like to find out.

Back on topic:


January 17th- Charlotte vs. Fordham  60 column inches  (Donnie Smith MLS article-  additional 12)
January 18th- (Donnie Smith draft selection- 4)

Totals:  Charlotte basketball:  60, Other: 16

Note:  Duke had 60 column inches today.  I'm guessing that's normal for the prime feature of the day.

Niner Mike, you start a thread like this and then tell ME I have too much time on my hands?  Why did you not start this thread back when the O was really giving us the shaft bigtime?  You waited until the coverage got better and complaints were at a minimum before you started the thread.

Even if coverage was equal now (which it is not), it will not undo the past damage.  Even Mike P admitted numerous times back then that we would never receive equal coverage.  Actually, he did more than admit it.  He rubbed it in our face in his smug, condescending way.

No I waited until I moved back to Charlotte and subscribed to the print edition again.  I've been out of the market for the last 8 years.  You imply that this would not detect any prior bias and that's certainly accurate.  I'm comparing coverage between our two schools currently.  Take it for what it's worth.  No reason to come up with conspiracy theories.


The article on Donnie Smith did give two sentences of the same article noting that Furman's Walker Zimmerman and North Carolina's Mikey Lopez were drafted at 7th and 14th overall.

So now you are telling us you blindly defended the O for all those years when you did not even live here or read the Observer?

What a circus act.  What are you gonna do for your encore?

Can we just leave this thread for what it is without bringing a bunch of drama into it?  If you find at some point I'm not being objective then please comment.  I'm not sure what your agenda is here but I'm just putting facts out there.  You can take them or leave them.  If you want to attack me personally please start a thread in the Smack Talk forum.  I'm a big boy and can take your abuse but quit mucking up this thread.

So to summarize, I wish you could have started sooner and hope you find the time/resources to go back further.

In light of that, could you keep track of column inches as front page and non-front page (sum obviously being total)?

One last thing. Is this going to be column inches squared? I'm not sure how the media people record this data.

That's kind of what I was getting at.  20 column inches on the front page, with a pic, is not the same as 20 column inches on page 5, with no pic.

I think Normmm was probably right all along, we'll be really good next year.

I'll make a note of placement.  NLP- In determining column inches you measure the length of an article and multiple by the number of rows.  If an article is 4 rows wide and 10 inches long it would be 40 column inches. This weekend alone will be a good gauge of coverage as we both have Saturday games and will have a direct comparison.

you could also give the page number a magnitude.. say multiply by 10 if on front page, multiply by 9 on second 8 on third etc etc.

So, Tarhole Mike wants to be objective, but he used to attack all Niners who criticized the O in some older threads, not to mention the fact he now admits he did not even read the O while attacking us Niners

How ****ing ironic is that?  I do like the idea of tracking the page number.

More drama 49r9r?  I don't ever recall attacking any 9er in a thread but I like your revisionist history as you call me Tarhole Mike.  I don't mind taking an upopular stance and I'm not afraid to do so despite any grief I get from you or anyone else.  I can guarantee you that there are not many bigger Niner fans than me.  I'm really surprised a UNC Charlotte graduate thinks I'm a Tarhole fan after pouring through hundreds of my posts.

Yes, because capitalizing a proper noun is sooooooooo non-Niner.

The mostly silent, but always insightful -Charlotte49ers- would like to say that Niner89 and 49er9r are being dicks and need to cut out the tough guy antagonizing. You had an opportunity to do your own analysis when the results would have been much more to your liking, but you did not. I am actually interested in the results.

By "more to your liking", you mean "would have supported your low opinion of the Observer"?? Just asking for clarification.

For someone who has not been back to support the program over 10 years you seems to have problem with the naked 15-2 emperor. You also like to lick something belongs to someone in the basement of your parents in Hick- oreeeee. When was the last time you have yourself check by a specialist?  ;D Please, do not PM me.

Say what you want.  My point remains the same.  Doing a survey in modern times after the O improved their coverage (didn't the Raleigh paper start calling the shots) in no way reflects the injustice we received at a time when getting the entire city behind us was essential to our future.
