CV3000 Fired -- per duck fan request

It is with a heavy heart that we bring this sad news to you. We had some recent allegations against CV3000, claiming that he makes things up about the 5th place ducks (he didn't make that up--they did finish 5th in the Pac-10), and so we had to perform an investigation.

Here are the complaints:

Wow, they really should fire CV3000
I have friends at OSU and I don’t think this bitterness and lack of college football knowledge is a good indicator of Beaver fans. Grow Up and try and make a blog based on facts……………..try to.

In that quote from the article about UW practicing for chop blocking….. there isn’t one mention about the University of Oregon, so just because you have a hatred for us doesn’t mean you can make up things about our team. It sounds like they are just practicing it to practice it and be ready. Never heard anything about us being dirty in any media. So I really think you should rethink your way of writing here. I’m all for a little sly and witty jabs here and there but your end, right now, is getting childish and pathetic. ... Just saying there are a lot more important things for your team you could be talking about then making up things about your fellow Oragonians 45 minutes south.

It was the saddest decision since Ol' Yeller, but we had to let CV3000 go for (gasp!) quoting and linking a beat writer on a football blog. Now that we've let CV3000 go, this duck fan --who was up past midnight obsessing about the Beavers-- can have another peaceful day in the little green bubble.


"The duck fan gazed up at the enormous face. Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden beneath the dark moustache. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, ever ything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. The duck fan loved Big Brother."
