There must be a full moon tonight.
Despite a few stragglers still fighting the Lee Fowler battle on the Pack Pride Message Boards, the overwhelming majority of ‘advice’ to “Coach Fowler” seem to be in significant agreement with our perspective #1 and our perspective #2.
Tonight we have learned that even ‘impartial’ observers are in agreement with our advice.
First, 850 The Buzz’s Blog wrote, “Memo to Fowler: Stop Talking.”
As if SFN wasn’t surprised enough that we were in such agreement with 850 The Buzz – (to be fair, we tend to agree with the more level headed perspective of the blog than the ratings driven, contrived ramblings of the daily talk radio format) – imagine our HORROR when we found out that Bob Lee Swagger (Tarheel homer and Dennis Rogers wanna be) was offering appropriate advice as well. God forgive me for providing this link:
You folks know I like Lee Fowler. He is a darn fine fellow….I do so wish he would have asked my advice Friday BEFORE he went and sent that â€œopen letterâ€? to the WuffNation. I would have told him â€œnot until pigs fly and Chuck wears a size 36 sportcoatâ€?. Yes, he posted â€œitâ€? on GoPack.com (the Official NCSU sports website) but within a nano second it was all over packpride.com and the various other cyber clubhouses for the concrete colon crowd.
No coach or administrator should EVER acknowledge his fanbaseâ€™s Lunatic Fringe. NEVER! Those wretched souls spend their lives being totally ignored in the “real world”. They are quite used to and comfortable with baying at an imaginary moon. The mere thought that anyone but other lepers in the colony hear them is inconceivable. And now Lee Fowler reaches out to them asking them to group hug and sing Kumbaya Chuckie.
Lee might as well have walked thru broken glass barefoot then gone wading in a piranha pool. Actually the Wuff Loonies were gnawing the flesh from his bones QUICKER than a school of piranhas. Within minutes the %$#& Fowler posts had outnumbered the illegal procedure penalties in a typical Wuffpack first quarter. It was a variation of Groucho Marxâ€™s line about â€œI would not join any club that would have me as a memberâ€?. No self-loathing Wuff Loonie could respect an AD that stooped to loonie level.
Specifically Lee was politely admonishing â€œhis fellow suffering wolfpackersâ€? for their verbal disrespect for Chuckâ€™s picture on the Jumbotron. That was his original mistake. For all his pratfalls and all the times heâ€™s stepped ankle deep in Ramses droppings, Little Dickie ainâ€™t NEVER considered putting a 40â€™ visage of any UNC coach or Administrator on Kenanâ€™s Jumbotron. In fact Kenanâ€™s Jumbo came with a â€œDickie and Meezie filterâ€?. It wouldnâ€™t show their faces even if some evil saboteur would try and program it. NO, I have NOT tried it.
So, how does Lee Fowler plan to heed the advice?
Well, he’s added a radio interview on 850 The Buzz Thursday afternoon to Wednesday’s previously scheduled speech at the Raleigh Sports Club on Wednesday. No word yet if Regis & Kelly have taken him up on anything for Friday.
