There is not a better word in the English Language to describe Scoop Jackson. I'm sure you are already aware, but in case you weren't........Scoop stole the intellectual property of an awesome site YAYSports! And not only did Scoop steal the name/object/character Orange Roundie, he copied the writing style and exact format of YAYSports!' columns on O.R.
Sure mistakes can be made (I made the mistake of not quoting Wikipedia once), but a blatant jack move like this should not go un-noticed or un-punished. It's the biggest dick thing you can do to someone who puts their time, effort, money, and creativity into a website. I'm sure YAY! isn't looking for a link or apology but a retraction of the article, and they shouldn't be asking for anything less. So join me by supporting YAY! in a baragging of Scoop, and the Ombudsman with as many emails as you can.
Also, Please make a post on your site if you have one. Let's get together and show our numbers on this one Sportsblog Nation!
