RVacchianoNYDN: The folks at @BigBlueInteract presented Eli Manning with their 2011 Giant of the Year award after practice today. #NYG
.... seconds later.....
alexraskinNYC: @RVacchianoNYDN Someone should present them with a calendar.
what a tool!
At least now I know who Alex Raskin is.
|I don't think the impression we necessarily want to give the new guy is that Giants fans are an easily butthurt group that will lash out at any slight
Alan Raskin, meet BBI.
You've lost middle America.
Called us names.... But SoDev was there...
SoDev is a killer!
SoDev is a mess.....
When would a fan given award be given to a player, if not training camp?
Anyways, seems like he was making a smart ass comment. Kind of came off as "Raplh-ish." I see no problem with BBI wanting to nip this one in the bud before we are stuck with two Ralphs. Well done, folks.
He should start looking for a new team to cover...
His name sounds great for him to cover the REDSKINs.
All GIANTS fans should boycott his "coverage"
YOU CAN'T SIT WITH US!!!!

What's his name?
are the ones taking it too serious.
He made a stupid comment and got his balls busted a little bit via the Internet. Boo hoo. Welcome to BBI and the rest of the Internet.
That douche bastard!
The reason for the timing of the award (next year's traning camp)- that BBI understands the immediate post Superbowl excitement (and how the players are exhausted physically [and mentally after being hounded by the media for two weeks]) ...
Players just want to unwind, go to Disney World/Land and relax.
Get my drift, Mr. Raskin ?
to be so dumb and talk like this, but after what this scumbag did and had to go through for his own actions, to be given another opportunity and a $100 million dollar contact to boot and spout this arrogance is unbelievable. No display of humility or being humble whatsoever. It just proves that he didn't learn a single thing and is still an entitled, spoiled asshole.
bigblue i was really confused for a second.
Which thread was that supposed to be in?
You'd be able to guess pretty easily, but it was for the Michael Vick thread.
but too lazy to look at all the threads.
The newbie beat reporter took a jab at something he didn't think was all that important and is suffering the consequences. Does anyone really think he thought the timing of the award was off, or is it orders of magnitude more likely he thought the award wasn't that important because it came from a fan site and was taking a jab?
This is why it's 1) always a good idea to keep your mouth shut until you really know what you're talking about 2) don't play on Twitter if you're not ready for the intended outcome (reaction).
Maybe Raskin should have a chat with Bob or Mike or Pat -- or maybe the Jacobs family, real friends of BBI and real friends of Hope, and get that this means something to the team and fans.
"Putting your foot in your mouth"; this time, it came out his ear, (foot corns & bunions), for all to see.
Try saying something clever, next time, Mr. Raskin.
Some minimum wage beat writer insulted the glass dildo the folks at camp gave away, and the rest of BBI is scrambling for pitchforks and trying to figure out how to spell "indignant"? That about right?
Garafolo is great. There's a couple of others that are OK. The rest suck and there is no good radio coverage of the Giants. The radio clowns either don't talk football, talk about the Jets all the time, or talk about teams from other NFL cities. The only reason why the Giants got a little more "pub" on the radio in the last year is because of Eli's comment and the run to the superbowl.
Some of y'all are acting like he took a piss on your mom.
He made a remark implying that BBI should have somehow had a trophy presentation sometime after the SB, but before training camp. Don't know how he expects BBI to have a trophy presentation with Eli in the *offseason,* but he assumed it was possible, I suppose.
the moron took a shot at the community here. shots fired back. hilarity ensued.
And are in a position to judge his intentions.
Not having heard him, his "check the calendar" quote sounds like dismissive swipe at Giants fans, who if they had a brain "would know better".
Or maybe he's just using the "I'll kick the 'honey bucket' over, right-away trick" to get our attention !
Trekkies after someone insults Spock
mofo. I will come down on your ass like a bag of space bricks.
I don't see the connection there.
"Honey Bucket", it was in Basic ...
The T.I. yelling at us - "OK, don't want nobody shittin' in their pants, go use the Honey Bucket (portable latrine), younder"
Then there was - "lite if you got 'em" (what ?) It was the cigarette break (I've never smoked). Now he's yelling at me again - "If you ain't got 'em, clear out, else I'm gonna make you "police" (means clean-up) the whole area !
it's embarrassing. Why would anyone on BBI
a)Notice such an inane comment from some nobody at Giant camp's twitter, and b)Get offended by that? Delete this thread. It makes us all look like oversensitive jerks living in our mothers' basements.
I meant no disrespect to anyone who happens to be living in their mother's basement.
Im not deleting the thread. Best thread all week
in fact, I don't see what separates this thread from any one of a hundred other ones. The tone in is this thread is typical of this site. As I said before, a person being called out for saying something stupid happens multiple times every day here. How is this in any way different? How is it different than any one of the several Vick threads? This guy said a stupid thing, and he was called out for it. Just another day at the office. If anyone's oversenitive, it's the people worried about being "embarrassed". That's weak sauce.
I have never heard of him. Has he been in the witness protection program up until now?
