    Rucker sure is butthurt at the "Basilio family" today. I'm not entirely sure why it's such a big deal. I might find myself more able to side with Rucker if he didn't have that "I'm a Journalist, and I'm More Rational, Neutral, and Smarter Than You" attitude all the time. Basilio is what he is, which is why I don't understand why Rucker's so butthurt.

    Over what exactly are they quarreling?

    Rucker spent an hour destroying them. I know Basilio's new(ish) sidekick put something on his blog that was ridiculous comparing Rucker to Goebbels. I just found it strange Rucker felt led to spend an hour hammering everything Basilio. It all centers around the Cam Clear stuff and I guess Rucker felt they shouldn't have been talking about it 3 weeks ago. I dunno if he was butthurt because they got it out first or what.

    Bottom line, Basilio's made his share of out there claims, but I don't think his record is as bad as some folks portray it to be, and his show is different than Rucker's, and I'd probably take Rucker better if he didn't come across like such a jerk, especially since everything he says is now followed by ($).

    they need to realize that both are small time journalist in the 3rd biggest sports city in Tennessee.

    I think Basillio gets that and he just has fun with what he does.

    Used to really like Rucker's work. Then he went to 247, and basically has become unbearable since then.

    When Wes decided his opinion mattered, he ceased to matter.

    Never have heard Basilio. Not once.

    Is Patrick on twitter? Or rather, what's his handle?

    Basilio is goofy, but i would rather listen to him any day of the week of Rucker. Rucker needs to have his arse handed to him to get his smug attitude straightened out.

    Nobody appreciates the importance of Rucker quite as much as Rucker.

    i'd say we probably have more in common, it's just politics and religion that seperate us

    It's a bit. And people bite on it all the time.

    I think sometimes it is a bit, but then sometimes I think he really is a [Penis].

    We don't hang out or anything anymore, but I've known him a long time. It's a bit. He makes fun of himself all the time.
