This is what blows my mind. How do people not
1. Mike Florio's income is directly tied to page hits (i.e. he gets paid per advertisement served on his site)
2. Saying controversial things generates traffic (e.g. "you won't believe what this guy said, here, follow this link to his site and see for yourself! What a jerk!")
3. Visiting his site makes his model business sustainable, and ensures he's going to keep posting garbage to rile people up
. By following links to his site, you are literally supporting him
and encouraging him to continue churning this crap out.
Mike Florio is not an idiot. He makes 6-figures a year trolling people for a living. The ones that bi*tch and moan about his articles, post links to his site are pawns in his game.
Have you guys ever heard the expression, "the opposite of love is not hate, it's complete and utter indifference
?" If you really want Mike Florio to stop insulting the 49ers, stop giving him the time of day. Remember guys, any press is good press...
