So, I was listening to yesterday's podcast. There was a reference to a message board by Cory below. Wonder if he was referring to FBC?
"One of our callers yesterday pointed us to a message board where some people were talking about the show, kind of critiquing the show a little bit, and for the most part it was very positive and I appreciate that, it's good to get good feedback.
And I can take bad feedback as well, but there were a couple of people that were a little bit critical of Mike, they say he's never won a big-time league so how seriously should we take his advice? And I just think that's really weak to be honest with you. He was a little bit peeved by that, and I was like 'yeah, don't worry about it', but the more I thought about it, you know what, if you like the advice, if you think the advice is sound then take it on its merits.
What does it matter if it's coming from the tic-tac-toe-playing chicken down in Chinatown? If you think the advice is sound, take the advice, don't put the qualifications on it. The other things we've become very adamant about here on the show, is we show our work. We say why we think what we think. And, if you agree with that, with what we say, and you think the advice is sound, then you run with it, and if it works out, great.
If it doesn't work out, we explain why we thought it and you had your option to buy into it. Mike and I have been on this show for 4-5-6 years, I don't even know how long. Mike's been a staple and I think the show is fairly well regarded, and clearly Mike is a part of that.
Take the advice on its merits. If you think Mike is out of his mind, call up the show and say 'Mike, we've heard your advice and I think it's nonsense.'
... Advice has to be viewed in a bubble, we take all the information we get, we apply what we think we know and we take our best show at it, and if you think it makes sense run with it. Mike can go to bat for himself, he's a big boy, but I think it needed to be said, and the bottom-line is, maybe that's why Mike's out sick today. Maybe his feelings were a little bit hurt. (both laugh)"
