Paul Sorensen Calls Out YOU, Anonymous!

October 7, 2008

Former WSU great Paul Sorensen weighed in on Paul Wulff the other day over at Cougfan. It’s a premium article, so we won’t post beyond what is listed in the first paragraph. But the gist is that this thing is in the right hands, it will take some time, and those who are doubting right now have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.

But Sorensen was just getting warmed up. He went on KJR today, and really let loose in a quick interview with Ian Furness. Give it a listen here. Oh, and he HATES you, anonymous.

“If you want to attack someone, attack a kid, attack a coach, then man up and put your name out there. Hiding behind those monikers mean absolutely nothing. It’s just a chance for you to take shots with no accountability.”

Sorensen talks a mile a minute, and he was always on the goofy side when he did WSU games on the radio. But he knows of what he speaks. Listen to him regarding Wulff, and EWU and that success and how that will translate to WSU. It’s worth your time.

And as far as the fake names/monikers? Yeah, it’s a little cowardice to rip people a new one when nobody knows who you really are. But it’s more than norm than the exception online these days. We let that go on here basically because we want interraction. We want to hear from you. If we made you register with a user name and password, or demanded that you use your real name, well, then you wouldn’t comment.

It’s just like people who call into sports radio stations to vent. Do you think that half of them are actually who they say they are? They aren’t. It’s that anonymity that allows people to be a little more open than they normally would be, that’s all. It comes with today’s territory regarding message boards, blogs, etc. There are always idiots, and there always will be, but there are some outstanding viewpoints out there as well, viewpoints that we see every day. I’m afraid that if we took away the commenting feature, then we would lose a big chunk of what makes this site somewhat interesting to begin with. So there.
