Can't stand the guy..... I read his column and listen to him on WCCO though..... not sure why.... strictly for entertainment purposes..... they always say "It's not what you know, but who you know." Sid is example #1!!

Ummm...your point is what exactly?

Sid gets paid big bucks to stir the pot a bit too. Is it entertainment?...you bet...Is he always right?...no...but neither are we playing armchair quarterback....

No real point to the post. It is just a kind of silly comparison.

The one thing I will say is we don't get quasi-celebrity status and big bucks for writing and advertising doing arm chair quarterbacking and he does. Because at the simplest form that is what he does.

Thankfully more contemporary journalists hold degrees, don't (at least not all of them don't) bootlick athletes just to get stories, can write articles on a platform other than on the coattails of others, can be something other than a blind homer/shill (are objective), and can write grammatically correct.

I used to like Sid as a kid and then I formed my own opinions and started examining his journalistic style and woke up. But he'll never get run out of a job because there are lots of old timers that watch the Sports Show, Listen to the Sports Huddle, and read his sports gossip column (like my dad). So we'll just have to wait until the Good Lord is looking for a buddy buddy reporter for the big newspaper in the sky.

hes alomost a MN icon only for the fact that he has been around so long. He kind of started the love hate relationship thing so many sports talk guys have now.

You could swap names on Sid and the Shooter and couldn't tell the difference. It's the style that outstate small newspaper guys use to fill space.

Did you see Sid during the Terry Ryan press conference today? Holy cow! Blubbering fool. Somebody better have him on suicide watch because he's right on the edge with Ryan stepping down. ROFL. What a doufus.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
