Just thought this was funny since SFN is routinely bashed and Section Six is held up as the holy grail of NCSU sports blogs because they have the Four Factors (OMG!!!1).

The latest post on SFN

Quote :
"Welcome to the Death Spiral, Sid!"


Quote :
"Sidney Lowe doesn’t know what he’s doing, and he’s flailing around and pointing fingers to shield himself from blame. But I’m sure he’ll do a great job replacing 90% of our offensive and rebounding next year, with one recruit expected to be an “immediate impact” player. Right? We just need to believe! Because Sid really WANTS to win, and he’s one of us! Yay!"


It's like any random post ripped from the credibility thread

Shit's weak

The prosecution rests

Stories have different authors, you know, much like TWW

This is the article that SectionSix was referencing as a good breakdown rant about the game

http://www.statefansnation.com/index.php/archives/2009/02/08/acc-officials-embarrass-league-spark-vpi-comeback/

And yes, it is a blog but you're filtering out a lot less trolly back-and-forth bullshit than on this board too

i like a nice mix of SFN and TWW.... they have some rational/insightful analysis from time to time... and then there is the utter despair. Its blogs like SFN that will hopefully keep some FIRE FOWLER animosity going for awhile to come.

My favorite commenters on SFN right now are the guys who claim they don't watch the games, they are out walking their dog, spending time with their family, they just DON'T CARE about NC State basketball anymore. EXCEPT they're on after every game telling everyone how great it is not to watch....so much for not caring

section six can go months without a single good post...i mean just go look at their november 2008 archive...their best posts were previewing shitty basketball games...this was at the height of the improbable run at bowl eligibility and it's pure shit over there

everything else is pictures, youtube, quotes of articles, or links

that's why he's the best. when there's no news, he doesn't re-write the same article about how lee fowler sucks fifty times.

yeah, he just regurgitates quotes from real news sources on a daily basis with a couple of nifty unique stats every once and a while...an RSS feed has more originality than he does.

not saying SFN is great or anything, but at least they have an original thought now and then and spur conversation, even if those thoughts are sometimes retarded

Yeah that's my problem with sectionsix...there's just not much content outside of the stats. and as a result there's no community. sometimes the best part of a SFN entry is large number of comments below it. just like tww, they're not all 100% on point, but in general the quality of the posting is much better than what I see around here (not that its hard to beat). i enjoy both, but i'm not gonna roll around with the RAWR RAWR YOUR BLOG SUCKS CAUSE ALL IT HAS IS STATS bs. I read them both.

I also like the way SFN aggregates NCSU Athletics information from all over the place. I haven't found another blog that does that. you might see pieces of the same info here and there on tww, but it's a lot harder to find amongst all the crap.

Really?

The SFN post is just three links to other sources

two links to websites (SFN) < actual original work (s6)


SFN is pretty useless to me. I mean, links to websites I know about, plus shitting on the teams I like isn't something that's worth a lot to me.

I don't happen to browse the N&O, 850's website, and ESPN daily. I guess I'm not hardcore like you guys

Yeah you are, you're just clicking through SFN to get there.

http://www.newsobserver.com/sports/college/ncsu/ isn't hard to keep a check on. No less difficult that it is to go to SFN and then click on a link to the same exact place.


And the number of blog comments is a useless metric. That's lower than free message board threads.
