    i genuinely think quick would be perfect for this role. he is at his best when he's writing personal interest stories. not sure if the Athletic has more juice with the national audience, though.

    I don't like Quick much but i agree he could replace Canzano.

    I hold JQ and Canzano with the same level of respect and am sure I'll continue to consume the same amount of media from each, none.

    Can you imagine if they replaced him with someone who had an analytical mind and who actually knew more than the average fan?

    Sadly, neither can I. We will likely be afflicted with another poison-pen-gossip- columnist.

    How great would it be if no one signed up for his newsletter? Straight crickets.

    Is this why Dwight has stepped up his muckraking? He knew there was a void to crawl up into?

    Does he promise to stop intentionally lying to me (and I'm sure to others) in emails?

    Does he promise to stop making up "facts" in order to construct a better argument?

    Does he promise to admit when he makes mistakes, like when he wrote that the Blazers could trade Raef LaFrentz anytime they wanted to after the trade deadline?

    If not, then I'll just continue to ignore him. Thank you.

    I write a column for a living and have for over 20 years. Columnists are my world and what I have to say is that:

    Canzano is a fine writer (if a little shmaltzy and gimmicky.) He is passionate, and that's good. He loves his subject matter. He's great at making sports human.

    But, for me at least, the bad outweighs the good. Too often, far too often, he makes himself part of the story ... or the whole story. That narcissism is jarring and always takes away from the point he is trying too make. He also clearly loves to be a shit stirrer for its own sake, seemingly so he will have something to write about in a town where, frankly, there are not a lot of sports stories. He also just doesn't know enough about what he spouts off about sometimes.

    All in all, I am sad to say, I won't miss his stuff.

    Kerry Eggers? Now there's a great sports columnist.

    Funny thing is, had there not been a thread on here, I would have never known he was gone.

    This is true. I would not have known either.

    He certainly won’t be seeing his posts.
