What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Quit W(h)ining," by Steve Steffens:

"I like wine, I know wine, but I haven't had them all. ... It's very refreshing to come home and talk shop with the clerks, store managers, and owners that have made wine an everyday part of each of their lives and nine of 10 times turn me on to something I ordinarily would not buy. I have gotten no such help at these grocery stores." — dbo

About "Is It Time for Pay Equity for College Coaches and Players?," by John Branston:

"The athletes get treated better than anyone on campus. They get a fair deal. It isn't like they are working in a sweatshop for 4 years making jerseys for the schools to sell. Plenty of NCAA athletes graduate with real degrees and handle their athletic commitments at the same time. If you look at the value of their scholarships/housing/meals (tax free, at least for now) you would be amazed that most of them are doing better than your average RedBird." — 38103

About "On Target?," Michael Finger's account of trying to obtain a handgun permit:

"I don't particularly care for the Memphis Flyer as a whole, but it is at least some balance to The Communist Appeal. As a right-wing gun nut, I enjoyed the article, nicely written without a ton of commentary." — amaxware

Comment of the Week:

About "Beer at University of Memphis Football Games? It Could Happen":

"As for Tiger sports (and I say this as a lifelong fan), they should take advantage of our Elvis and Memphis Grizzlies connections and rebrand as the Teddy Bears. Memorabilia sales alone would cover the budget shortfall." — Jeff
