You like to use that particular phrase about taking a break when you disagree with someone - you often tend to argue ad hominem rather than the subject at hand - I've noticed that about you and it concerns me since you help run this place. There's sometimes a tension here that I'd more expect in a crazier place like Reddit. Maybe it's just everywhere now because people have forgotten how to disagree with each other without resorting to name-calling and personal invective. We follow our politicians' example.AndyTheQuizzer wrote: ↑Fri Dec 22, 2023 9:18 pmI wasn't talking to you the last time I ventured into this thread, but I certainly am now.Anachronism wrote: ↑Fri Dec 22, 2023 5:35 pmEither fun through humiliation, or you have to wonder if he's planning a Charles Van Doren moment.
Do you honestly believe that anyone in the game show business—regardless of what show it is—would actually risk their career on such a maneuver?
If you actually and honestly believe that, I think you might need to take a break from watching the show for awhile, because it's certainly not been healthy for you.
But yes, I have been taking a break through the tournaments. As for my health, I think it's OK. My doctor says I'm in great shape for my age, especially heart and other measurables, but suggested I exercise more. I bought some cardio equipment over the BF sales. But I think you're being disingenuous in your concern.
I don't know what he's capable of doing - maybe someone could believe so adamantly that he was taking game shows to the next level that he might consider such a move. His tenure here certainly suggests a dissociation with what made Jeopardy such a success. I honestly think he's done just about everything wrong since he took over. Maybe he would consider rigging the game. That's a maybe, not an accusation - I think he's that bad at show-running. What is an accusation is that I think he governs as if he is more important than the franchise.
