If I had a dollar for every unbiased forum moderator I have ran across, I wouldn't even have enough to buy a 12 pack.

I like realist too . But people really donít like it. Half the country lives in fantasy land . I can go to that political section and read about how great one side is and how evil the other side is . Depending on which side the joker posting is for . I mean, itís all about 90% bull shite but itís another similarity of the WWE and people I think actually believe in it .
Cheating is part of any game . What are they going to do run any sport on the honor system? Reality
Thereís never going to be zero cheating or zero horse deaths . But Christ , you shouldnít have multiple horses dropping dead Derby week. Reality
Lastly, it turned out to be a good thing that Forte scratched and even better that he didnít win the race . I can hear it all now during Preakness week , all the stink around the Derby winner which would have made the third or fourth time in recent years . Iím at the point where maybe they want this trouble . You literally canít make this shit up. I disagree with some of what he said . The WWE knows how to promote itself with their bafoonery and Horse Racing are bull shitters but man are they bad at it .

When youíre really a realist . Many people canít stand you . They donít want the truth pointed out . They donít want to have to see it , hear it or touch it . Many peoples comfort zone is the crap they are told if itís what they want to hear or to deny reality because it hurts too much .
Thatís the secret sauce for the media . Decide who your audience will be then feed them the breadcrumbs (bs) that they long for. You then have a sucker /customer for life .

IMO, it was a foolish thing to say as a representative of a business that's trying to promote racing, especially when the industry has come under so much criticism in the recent years and is trying to improve its reputation. But a bit of what he said has been true, still is true, and probably will continue to be true. IMO, it would be really unfortunate if he lost his job for expressing an opinion most horseplayers would concede was somewhat accurate even if expressed poorly. I hope this ends with "lesson learned" and back to business. Enough of these job losses for a single moment of questionable judgement.
