Re: “Media Watch

Far more concerning is Schuster's use of an answering machine. What is this, 2002? Who the hell uses an answering machine any more? Can you even buy them?

Re: “Media Watch

I recognize it's a mistake to approach this in a logical manner, but for a group that talks about the money, and talks about how amazing PGU is, they really spend a great deal of time trashing other sites. If they're so good, why bother? Seems an odd approach, this constant self-aggrandizing superiority.

What's the point?

To the best of my knowledge, no other site has spent the time attacking its competition to the level that PGU has attacked others. If PGU is so in front of all the rest, so dominant, so superior, then why the wasted energy?

Perhaps it isn't what it claims. And it knows it. And it knows a lot of others recognize this too. Hence the recent decision to charge for information, which the site bragged about not doing and as mentioned in a post above used as a selling point against the other Wildcat websites.

When you act a certain way things eventually unravel. If you do enough stupid, unethical things people start to notice.

Kevin Spacey isn't the star in this House of Cards. It's the Ace at the top of the deck that has the furthest to fall.

Derek works in a laundrymat, which probably means he lives with mom and dad... Or who knows, maybe Ace.

They should hang out at the MGM Grand and have a "Bunch of Maroons" party during the weekend of the Pac-12 Tourney.

One thing that Ace and his internet tough guy cronies have in common: lame, sophomoric insults.

It says here that one of the staples of DVM Multimedia is reputation management. It seems DVM has a ton of work to do.

Re: “Media Watch

Oh yeah! One last comment for everyone saying what a joy Scheer is and that ACE is not a joy to be around (@ODogg and @Wildcat Joe) ... for the last two years ACE has spent probably $10K per PAC12 tournament for a suite at the MGM Grand and a crap ton of free liquor and food for his loyal site members. Has Scheer or Encinas or any other bum ever done that for their site members? You jackasses pay more than I do for your memberships and get lousy information and what else? Some free crappy swag? I get grade A information, free shirts, free memberships, free money, and yes, free booze. Suck it.

Re: “Media Watch

Morons love to latch on like leaches when ACE gets a prediction wrong and then ignore the other 95% of the time when he gets it right. 17-18 year old children are sometimes unpredictable. That's why Kameron Chatman decided to betray the trust of the Arizona coaching staff, telling them he was about to commit and then randomly deciding to be a bench bum for the far below mediocre Michigan Wolverines. Sometimes there are dozens of moving parts in a recruitment and a solid commitment becomes a transfer going elsewhere. Lastly its pretty god damn hilarious that Gabe Encinas ran with a story that he had no damn clue about. He saw that Fultz was visiting and then proceeded to fabricate all of the details surrounding the visit like his idea that Kentucky is the leader for Fultz when they haven't even offered yet and he seems to have little to no interest. If he stole information from ACE more effectively then he'd know that Arizona will be pushing for a commitment from Fultz next week on the visit. Would they do that if Kentucky was the prohibitive favorite? Likely not. He also thinks that there won't be much roster turnover moving forward. Apparently he thinks that players are not allowed to leave Arizona early for the NBA. Anyway, you all are basically idiots. ACE may not be a kind hearted Mahatma Ghandi type person but he sure as hell gets the job done right and knows what he's doing. I'd rather be a winner and an asshole than a loser like Scheer any day. Later losers.

Re: “Media Watch

Ace called me after a slight disagreement on his website - I wanted to know why he thought Ivan Rabb was going to cal... Anyway, he calls me and berates me for literally 20 minutes, and I have to say, while he did shred me and personally attack me (he called me a faggot about 50 times) he said some of the funniest stuff I've ever heard: "do I come to your midget glory hole dildo factory and tell you how to run it? No! So don't try and tell me how to run my website, faggot..." To this I started laughing hysterically which infuriated him. So he went to my Facebook and told me my wife looks like an fat ugly slut, to which I replied "that's why I married her!" And he hung up. Dead serious, this was about a month ago. This guy is a whack job, but a totally entertaining one!

This guy is obviously a nut, but the bigger question is what veterinarian would do any business with this guy’s company?

@Blocked by Ace. After my confrontation with that idiot I decided that I'm better off just enjoying the team when they play the game rather than following a shameless rumor mill.

Re: “Media Watch

His behavior is abhorrent. He has done this for years, and if you are even the littlest bit critical, you're attacked uncontrollably by him and his followers. They go way out of their way to praise him when anything he predicts is correct, and when a case like Lee comes up they don't even acknowledge it. If you try to even so much as mention that they were wrong, everything you say is deleted and you're blocked from all of their media. They blocked me on Twitter literally months after I tweeted out one critical message of them. They went back months to find anyone who didn't give unbridled praise to them. Their obnoxious, unprofessional behavior is appalling.

But the problem that my friends and I have with them, who have also been blocked for any minute critical opinion, is that we continue to view the website because they really do have an amazing amount of insight and info into UA recruiting. On information alone, they really are the best. It might be because they play by absolutely no rules and suffer zero repercussions for their errors, but it's incredibly frustrating to continue to visit a website run by people I cannot stand, professionally and otherwise. They are able to say and predict things earlier and more often than other outlets because they aren't held accountable if they're wrong. But they actually are right a lot of the time, probably 90% or better. It's so frustrating and insulting to keep coming back to them because they have what I want. Thanks for trying to keep them accountable

Re: “Media Watch

I'm a member of Jason Scheer's fine site, WildcatAuthority.com. A couple of years ago Ace sent me an email, unsolicited, that just raged against Scheer and one of the more established members of that site, two people I both like and respect. His email was completely irrational and I told him so, told him I had no idea why he was emailing me but if he thought such communication would entice me to become a paid member of his site, he was delusional, and asked him to never email me again. A month later I heard there was an interesting story up on his site, so I went there to try to read it and my IP had been banned. Hilarious. This guy is a first class nut job.

Re: “Media Watch

He's "extremely excited" to be here."
Yeah, right.
It's ALL about reporting on crime, Nick.

And he misuses the words "myself" and "that" (instead of who).
Typical TV dude.
