Remember my Tyrone Corbin post? #FireCorbin? Utah Jazz 360 has deleted it. Yup. Even though it contains no profanity. This is no longer a free forum for fans to express themselves. UJ360 is now apparently deleting posts that are critical of the Jazz organization.
There have been posts in the past with lots of obscene content; racism, sexism, profanity…but apparently that’s all good. But don’t you dare criticize the Jazz front office. Your posts will be deleted without notification.
It’s been fun getting to know all of you fellow Jazz fans. KC and Taco, you guys know what’s up. Dallan and Omar, better watch what you say from now on.
To everybody else, we’ve had our disagreements, but it has always been for love of this Utah Jazz team. It’s been a great few years, with plenty of ups and downs. But I won’t tolerate an unknown moderator deleting an articulate, well thought out post that I worked hard on writing.
The #firecorbin movement is gaining momentum. Maybe they deleted my post in an attempt to quell that momentum. Let’s keep fighting and show the Jazz organization that we DEMAND a coach who can bring out the best in this team.
Most importantly, I really hope that my favorite sports team of all time gets their act together, and becomes everything that I know they have the potential to be.
If you care, I’ll still be visiting SLCDunk. My handle there is nsc1009, and you can also hit me up on Twitter @NickChristenso1
This is “Nick Knows All” signing off. Much love, happy new year, and as always LET’S GO JAZZ!
I recieved an email from Bill Lea, who manages this and a couple of other sites. He stated that the reason he took down the post was because I made a comment about Corbin and compared him to a tumor.
In retrospect, that was probably a bit much. Joking about cancer isn’t funny. I wasn’t trying to offend anybody, so I’ve deleted that portion of the post. I still find it odd that of all things that’s apparently what can get posts taken down. But cancer is an epidemic in the world that affects billions of people. So I’ll eat crow for that one.
I want to thank Bill Lea for responding so quickly. He even left in the part about the tumor. So that shows integrity on his part. I told him next time just to email me! That I way I won’t cry censorship and get everybody all riled up.
So, I apologize if I offended anyone with that statement. However, my opinion on Corbin remains unchanged, and I refuse to apologize for trying to start a movement to get him removed from his current position. I sincerely believe that he is a poor fit for coaching this team.
I’m happy to say I’ll still be posting here. I really don’t have too many other ways to procrastinate at work. And I was seriouslly bummed about the possibility of no longer browsing the forum, and trashing everybody’s ridiculous trade ideas But I was prepared to follow through with it, because if you don’t have principles, what do you really have?
I’d also like to add that I’ve never once doubted Corbin’s comittment to this team, and I do appreciate all of the hard work he puts in. But he’s not getting the job done, and doesn’t seem to be any better of a coach than he was from day 1.
Thanks to everybody for your support, LETS GO JAZZZZZZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
