A comment rating system is extremely high up on the list. It's just a matter of someone developing a good one for Wordpress. There simply isn't a good one yet (yet or still - there used to be a good one that no longer works).

I think a weekly "Who Gets Dicked in the Dick" segment where the biggest douch nozzle of week (celebrity, politician, Cardinal) gets noticed and scorned.

"Get to know your troll" a monthly segment that reviews the comments of the latest asshat then we celebrate him through humiliation.

Or a "Win a Date with Katie" maybe a BN Bachelorette contest... It be a huge fundraiser

The only thing about a comment rating system, is that its like hearing your voice on the answering machine; all preconceived notions about how cool you sound go out the window. Like, now, I hit 'post' and think, "What an intelligent, witty comment. Everybody will probably enjoy reading my opinion on this." With comment ratings, I will be forced to face reality.

Love all of these except I don't think anyone wants to win a date with me. I doubt many people would consider that 'winning' except for maybe Charlie Sheen.

I like the Dicked In The Dick portion. I wish my phone didn't try to autocorrect it to 'duck' though.

I will respond to this message board thread in the only way possible:

Per Google this is the greatest Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.

In all seriousness, I think the next logical step is a weekly podcast. The podcast would allow you to bring in guests, interview players and front office staff and reach out to a larger audience.

After that, you would have to buy the Budweiser house and turn that into BN central and put your desk in the window that faces Wrigley.

Aren't podcasts a little ... um ... passé at this point? I'm not trying to be a jerk, I'm serious. Do you folks still DL podcasts? It just seems so, I dunno, 2006 at this point. No?

'Course, now that I say that, it seems a lot of things stopped in 2006 for me. Wonder why... oh, yeah: offspring.

They aren't quite as big-time as they were three, four years ago, but the handful that remain are widely listened to.

I'd love to do one. The issue for me is time. A *good* 30/45-minute podcast takes a long time to put together. Hours, and hours. You can't just sit down and talk - it'll suck, and no one will enjoy it, even if it's stuff you otherwise like to hear about.

I've had a number of conversations with various podcasting vets about doing one in the future. It's on the table. My role would probably be limited.
