New Media War: Junkies vs. Mottrams

Ooh boy, it's been quite a few weeks for media wars. The latest is the Junkies vs. the Bros. Mottram, better known as the Misters Irrelevant. I happen to have a soft spot for the Junkies, due to the fact that I had to try to call various Junkies from a Panera sandwich shop while writing a piece about J.P.'s pro boxing career and they answered their phones.

But after Mister Irrelevant, Awful Announcing and I posted about the Brandon Lloyd "Troy Aikman might be gay" interview on Monday, virtually simultaneously, the Junkies are now firing back. Yesterday's transcript, from Awful Announcing:

"Ever heard of a site Mister Irrelevant? They clubbed us!"

"I never heard of their website until you mentioned it, so they can go to hell!"

"I read the three comments and two were from the brothers that write the site."

"It's showing that blogs that come out daily are grasping for content"

"Does he get the worst seats at Sporting Events because he's a blogger?" [Speaking about me, apparently. Answer: No, I actually get great seats, thanks.]

"These are the guys I hate the most right now: Jamie Mottram, Chris Mottram."

Me too! Mister Irrelevant has posted a mild apology clarification of sorts after ripping the show, so here's hoping everyone can become friends again. And unlike the unseemly Bog-Redskins Insider fight from last week, I think this conflict could actually drive ratings. Any show that rips the Mottrams on a daily basis (apparently they were mentioned again today) is a show that I will listen to on a daily basis*.

* Assuming they don't go up against the D-O-C on SportsTalk 980.
