Regardless of Mr. Wilkins' credentials, I look at his list of supporters here, and I close my eyes and imagine a Memphis that had not been blessed with this group of "leaders." This city would would be in far better shape had the majority of them never been in any position of power.
Bobby Parks was the best all around Tiger ever--so he should be #1 small forward. "Doom" Haynes ranks above Antonio Anderson. Perhaps the best pure, clutch shooter Tigers ever had?
What is 5 guys' mgmt. position on bike lanes on Ridgeway?
Keeping the Grizzlies' name was a horrible idea and showed a complete lack of vision of the marketing crew from wherever they came and a complete lack of understanding of their new home. Rockers was the best name. Blues was good. Sound is better. Grizzlies? Not so much...doesn't help Memphis at all.
How many NBA teams get jobbed at home in a playoff run on an expiring 24 second clock at the end of a game? It was far from the only bad call of the game, but it was indeed a horrible call. Double foul???? Never seen it called before and definitely not when the game is on the line. Shame on you, Violet. The refs took time to save face and then they jobbed the Grizz and got the hell out of Dodge.
I'm sorry you grew up in Pittsburgh and the tv show there was 3rd rate (although I must say, any tv show featuring Haystacks Calhoun--by definition--cannot be 3rd rate). However, I cannot sit here idly and watch you denigrate one of the greatest things that ever came out of Memphis. Memphis wrestling nor the fantastic tv show with Lance Russell and Dave Brown were decidedly not third rate. We would never have made a film about this subject matter were it so. Memphis wrestling was groundbreaking in its lunacy and its grandness in its day, and it remains (and shall continue to be) one of the most superlative entertaining experiences of our lives.
You obviously relish being the only heel in Memphis who hates Memphis wrestling.
