    ignorance abounds...

    First Post Banner
    the ignorance of some people calling into radio shows, writing in the paper and some posters here is staggering...

    what people should complain about is Chavez being given a suite and invited to the sidelines for only $10000000...(sarcasm)

    How about filling us in on some examples of the ignorance you are referring to. Just so we know a little more about your claims.

    You can't make everyone happy. Someone will always want to complain. It's pretty ridiculous.

    Here's an example for you: a gentleman called into Bob Brown's radio show yesterday and argued that the word "Renewal" in Renewal by Anderson is strictly faith-based and an attempt by UNM to infiltrate the community with conservative, Christian propaganda. He sounded like the typical "get off my lawn" type who probably spends his evenings watching and waiting for hippies and ne'er-do-wells to travel through his neighborhood. Still, he is not alone and I often cringe at similar calls, equally ignorant and baseless.

    A TV reporter recently said this about Trump and it holds true here: "You are entitled to your own opinion but you are not entitled to your own facts."

    Grammer did not do a good job with his story that was published this morning. Sembieda did a sh*TTY job of explaining the deal. It took a caller, whom I believe was Jeffinthe505, to help clarify.

    The people who call into the 610 afternoon show make me embarrassed for this state, its straight depressing.. And the hosts do not do a good job either, it seems they enjoy making fun of each others speech errors more than actually being logical about sports, and everything surrounding them.

    Yeah and now we got lawyers calling in and questioning UNM & Learfield's transparency. My head hurts. I'm turning off the radio. I woke up in a great mood today after watching the press conference last night

    Small minded people many of which I'm not convinced don't run around in tin foil hats. The lack of forward thinking in our proud state at times is so frustrating. This is a great deal and a win for our university and the community. Thank you Dreamstyle and Mr Larry Chavez for your generosity.

    I thought Grammer's story was fine. He covered the facts of the deal...what more did you want from him?

    It's not that I wanted more. He could have made due with a lot less. He lost me in the first 4 or 5 paragraphs. From my lens, the article was pretty sloppy. He could have told the story with a lot less content.

    I like Geoff but his story today (especially the title) was designed to imply there was something unethical or secretive about the deal. That is ridiculous! For years people have been wanting a big-time donor to step and help UNM just as some do at other schools. We finally get one and some are critical of how the money is paid and where it goes. Let Mr. Chavez decide what HE wants to do with HIS money. It is HIS money. If he is fine with it then that is all that matters. Thank you Mr. Chavez and Dreamstyle!

    In Geoff's defense, the reporter doesn't write the headlines, the editor does (Hi, Murk!). I thought the article was alright, but the headline was irresponsible. Not really surprised.

    I can't listen to those call-in shows anymore, hearing those callers makes me want to rip my hair out. We have many very poorly spoken uneducated folks in our community.

    A whole lot of those old farts have been through just about every up and down phase of Lobo Sports. I'm not embarrassed for them, I respect their contributions, perspective and wisdom. Go OldFartLoboNation.

    First off the headline was a joke and a disservice to this historic deal for UNM - whether it was GG or not

    That being said GG was asking questions at the presser with an attitude, and the Journal is getting a little pompous on this stuff. They need to quit acting like they are Woodward and Bernstein or something. They are a pissant fishwrap that is going down the tubes like most papers eventually will. There was ZERO reason for that headline or even inferring that something seemed foul in this sponsorship agreement. Hell GG even had a copy/referenced the Learfield 4.8million deal so what the hell was his beef????
    People who do not know how to conduct business have no business writing about it.

    I wonder how much other money is spent outside New Mexico?? No one at the journal better ever take a vacation to Disneyland (et al) and spend NM payroll dollars in another state. If not mistaken the State of NM has our Drivers licenses made in Oregon last i checked?? WTF to that? But no, lets have Larry Barker and the Journal spend precious time worrying about a golf trip and where 'some' of a $10M deal goes instead of looking into things that REALLY make a difference in NM folks lives. I dont think anyone in NM missed a meal, didnt get a welfare check, wasnt able to have medical services provided to them blah blah over Scotlandgate or Some of Our Sponsor $$ is Missing 'scandals'....

    Only in FKN NM....

    Simply ANOTHER example of NM eating its own.

    .
    I agree with all of this except really for the NM eating its own part. It's really just a matter of bad journalism, and Grammer has been pretty good in the past, so I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    As far as the terms of the agreement is concerned, Chavez provided it to the Journal, so why even mention that it wasn't initially public? It seems pointless to mention. And, yeah, $1 million of the $10 million is going to Texas...for Lobo Sports Properties which handles UNM marketing...so I'm not really sure why that matters. It's a damn good deal for UNM, if you ask me. I don't think it takes a genius to see that.
    FEAR NOTHING!!!!!!!
