Svoboda

I haven't seen much about Svoboda since confirmation that he was coming. Based upon a comment by Brob in a different thread, I looked at blackburnreview for the first time in months. Pretty nice write up with some stats/info that many (including me) probably had not seen. Also includes a link to the FIBA U20 Championship.

You'll have a hard time finding someone saying a good word about BR around here. The content is good, but some people dont like the unfiltered and in your face style. He's a great follow on Twitter a long as you can sift through the politics

People on here generally don't like anyone who says anything negative about UD which they are not afraid to do. I enjoy reading their blog and you can get a lot of good info on opposing teams and the fyers

There was a little info in Matej that was interesting. Don't have a problem with criticism,but the use of four letter words is unnecessary and juvenile.
Not sure why he said DP was in the Czech NBL. He plays in the top league in Italy and was in Germany last year.

Devon Scott was a repeat,repeat,repeat,repeat (you get the idea) offender. He hit his pregnant girlfriend and dragged her. He made 18 year old girls fear for their safety.

But this board's majority felt he "deserved a chance to turn it around" Theres a reason once Jalen Robinson got away from him Jalen turned it all around

I disagree. I think is their humor doesn't play as well for an older group which UDP has a larger percentage. I read it occasionally but to me it gets a bit shticky and that gets old. Some may feel the same about some of the shtick on here.

I agree with CE80. I really enjoy cutting and sarcastic humor, but I don't resonate with BR. I most certainly respect and appreciate his hard work to inform all of us on UD but wish he had his significant-other proof read it before Trump.....err BR hits send.

Agree. Doesn't mean some of the material isn't good info.

Back to the recruit.....no doubt he should be much more ready to play than the incoming freshman. Older player, with experience playing against older solid competition.

Just a gut feeling but I think he starts from day one and the rest of the A-10 fans say to themselves: "where the heck did UD find this guy? We're going to have to watch him for 3-4 more years?"

People often underestimate a couple years of strength, maturity, experience...

Buddy of mine who I played with took time off from HS to College and came in as a 21 year old freshman. His sheer "man strength" versus traditional freshmen body type was enough alone to make it VERY difficult to compete out of the gate.

This guy coming with experience from national teams...I think we are in for a good one.

What are you basing that on? Have there been reports he can't play D?

Or banned as soon as you really go beast mode. But screw it. You're here now. Among idiots. We like watching a ball go through a hoop. But go ahead and drop some takes. Make us laugh. Call out the absurdity. Nothing left to lose really.

I'm really not into gross hyperbole or "beast mode" as you called it, and jokes aside I'm unsure why I would get banned. The worst thing I've done so far is thank a person for calling me an idiot. If people on this message board are really going to get in a huff about me cursing in articles, so be it, the internet probably isn't for you anyways.

BUT, since I am here now and someone did link my article, thank you, its cool when people read what I write, because I do take the time to learn about the team year in and year out and find interesting info to keep people reading. Also thank you for someone fact checking the DP thing, could've sworn I saw him on a roster when researching NBL, but I updated it nonetheless.

I understand why BBR isn't for some people on this message board, but I'm a UD alumni, season ticket holder (who lives in Chicago), lifelong fan, son of a UD alum and a UD hoops supporter like everyone on here. Even if you dont agree with Blackburn's political ramblings (which I myself don't always) were still a site that covers the Flyers on a more detailed level than most besides Jablo. When the boys suck, I just say they suck, much like I'm quick to give them praise when things are going well.

I'll be putting out more quick posts about the rest of the team as the season draws nearer. I welcome people to let me know when I inevitably get details wrong. I also accept the fact that some UD fans bask in being miserable grumps, I just don't count myself among them.

I have a dream that one day the readers of BBR and UDP will join hands and be judged not by the content of their character but by the RED they wear and LOWDness of their expression of love for the Flyers as they descend upon the site of the Final Four.

I guess I'm too old to understand why referring to someone as a "chain-smoking, beer-drinking, *****-house-frequenting Euro boy," and using the "F" word, among others, in an article, would be amusing to anyone.

Edit: I do find it interesting that one of the words I quoted isn't even allowed on this site. There were worse ones that weren't even quoted.

I love the Flyers. I read as much as I can about them. That includes BBR.

Don't be petty.

The $6.50 (or whatever a beer cost this season) question is, do you wear a red sweater vest to games?

I find it funny because I know Sully isn't being serious. He's joking and making light of a stereotype. If you don't understand that the BR isn't meant for you. Not everything has to be serious all the time.

The writers at BR are just Flyer Fans who like to have some fun and not be politically correct. They're not journalists nor have they ever claimed to be. They write in a way that amuses some people and angers others. The angry reactions they get from UD fans and opposing teams fans makes it even better. My guess is that your post will end up as a screenshot on twitter and you will get mocked for being a typical "Prider".

I knew when I wrote the initial post it was going to devolve into a referendum on BBR. I just thought there would be more feedback on Svoboda before it did.

I thought the piece provided as solid a critique as almost anything written on here about a recruit.

For the record, i prefer the UD Pride civility primarily because I think we all want the same basic results. That being said, I've read several pieces on there that showed great knowledge and insight. As to the f bombs... I work in environments where the language t makes BBR look like a Disney movie. In and of itself, it doesn't bother me a bit
but I generally find it lazy in written form (or when substituted for insight in comedy). But that's just my opinion. However, I don't think it's as lame as trying to sneak language onto this site using $ymbo!$.

If you don't like it, don't log onto it. Some of the people on this board have a very difficult time realizing their views are nothing more than opinions that don't serve as the moral compass for a nation. It's just a website with some guy's opinions; really not sure what the fuss is.

Hey anybody hear anything about that Svoboda kid? Uh, man.

Well said all around:

So back to the critiquing part now that everyone has gotten that out of their systems...

My article gives most of what I know, but the guys I've talked to who have seen practice rave about the basketball IQ, can't even stress that enough. I think the last few years we have had a lot of question marks regarding Freshman and how much they actually can contribute, (I forgot Trey Landers was on the team for a portion of last season) but that does not seem to be the case with Matej. From all angles right now it seems like UD has a day one contributor, which will really come in handy because I don't think anyone on this site is counting on DD to avg double digits per night. My review of the defense wasn't a jab, he gets caught out of position a lot because his defense can be lazy at times. I would like to chalk that up to playing in a sleepy arena in Europe and I think it's a quick fix. I rarely get too high on these types of situations, but it sure does seem like Svoboda can give us minutes and buckets every night from the getgo.

Bottom line on the Svoboda article in BR - IMO it was a GREAT article with some profanity/vulgarity. (If Sully was from NJ where every other word is profanity, he'd be much funnier) Sorry Sully...Chicagoan's just don't know how to swear.

But...it is by far the best I've read...by far and I sincerely thank him.

Get a life guys...if it ticks you off so much then switch the channel. It really is that simple.

Has anyone else on any other site done a write-up on Svoboda? Even if it is just an armchair assessment -- and I think everyone gets that -- the BR article is more than I've seen elsewhere. As someone said earlier, I'm a fan looking for Flyer content -- don't be petty.

I follow BR...and I do have a sense of humor...worst than most a good portion of the time...

You can criticize the frat humor all you want, but you can't take away from the fact that BR delivers unbiased and brutally honest commentary.

Don't have to like it and it may not be your cup of tea, but they also aren't blowing smoke with their blog entries either.

Anyone that is a Flyer Fan is OK by me...if he works hard at providing us valued commentary than even better.

BTW Sully - any PR is good PR if you get what I mean........

I couldn't follow what you wrote. Totally confused. It just made no sense. Then I applied the BR filter and it was like the old trick of applying polarized glass. Now I see your analysis much more clearly.

I fixed it above, not sure why you didn't just say it clearly the first time.

Sully - for what is worth...thanks. There are a lot of critical people on every website and let' face it... well-intended sarcastic humor is difficult for people (like me) to convey in a short message. You are a great contributor...please continue to do research and communicate it to your appreciative fans.

I think that the vast majority of UD fans greatly appreciate your (and the BR website) for the hard work and contribution. I certainly do. Hope I was not part of our our UD followers that set you off. If I did I genuinely apologize.
