Yup.

Yup.

We need you JD. Cohn is starting to get some followers on YouTube and he'll infect the impressionable. Can we get you to counter every one of his videos? "Strengths and weaknesses of Cohn's analysis of his strengths and weaknesses on Dante Pettis?" so on, so forth.

Hahaha, nah, I'll do my thing and try not to bring any attention to him. If I do, he wins.
I like how you cant comment on the article unless you subscribe to PD. I wonder why...
Nope lock this thread

BTW: Good to see you face2face on your latest video. And well done.

Lol I noticed that a while back. He got tired of getting challenged in the comments section.
Member Milestone: This is post number 600 for 5_Golden_Rings.
Grant Cohn takes way too much heat here; probably because he sometimes takes controversial opinions to get clicks, just like his dad did. He also has a tendency to obsess about single issues and in so doing mistakenly overestimate their importance.

But sometimes he is fairly perceptive.

I love how people just assume this ego-gratifying stuff based on so little. You can easily post comments. You just have to have the right version of the article. He posts multiple versions, probably knowing some idiots will pay for it. Regardless, money is almost certain the reason.


Look: I even googled the article and found the version you can comment on:

https://49ers.pressdemocrat.com/offseason-proof-49ers-are-aiming-for-contention-in-2019/#comment-1208134


Made a comment to prove it, too:




So you have to click on the one that has the "read full article" link, and then THAT link should be the version you can comment on.

Other post is shown to see the date, not because I agree or disagree with it. And no, I have no subscription to any magazine or news outlet (lol why pay when it's free everywhere?).

Version you can comment on:

https://49ers.pressdemocrat.com/offseason-proof-49ers-are-aiming-for-contention-in-2019/

Version you can't:

I didn't assume anything. They changed their protocol and required you to sign up for a membership to be able to post replies there for a while. Maybe that's changed now.

It was never like that. The other versions of the articles have always been there. What they did was started publishing a preview page with a few paragraphs that had a comment section, which starts with "https://49ers.pressdemocrat" and then a link on that page that leads to the full article, where you get the pay gateway, which starts with "https://www.pressdemocrat".

You just didn't know because either you never scrolled down to the comments on the "49ers.pressdemocrat" link or you just never knew if its existence.

But I was posting comments the very first DAY they switched to the pay gateway, because I hit the back button in rage and it took me to the "49ers.pressdemocrat" link and I happened to scroll down.





All that said, it is 100% about money, not Cohn's fragile ego. He responds to live questions when he does a podcast, so if he was so soft he certainly wouldn't be doing that. They just want your money.

Gotcha
That said, anyone who is incapable of acknowledging being wrong does have a fragile ego imo
Just keep watching the videos.... Only real truth around....
