Can't Spell Douchebag Without D-I-B-B-L-E

Or maybe you can. I wasn't very good at math.

The only thing I'll say about the ol' Dibble thing is that I think it's complete and utter horseshit that Todd Webster and the gang at MASN are so heavily moderating comments that anything even mildly against Dibble -- even respectful without swears! -- isn't getting posted. That's shittastic PR, and pretty fucking shameful. Pretty amazing that the only comments that've made it through have been positive. Could just be a coincidence, right? Scumbags.

OK... one more: Saying that "Gosh, Dibble's a moron because I know a woman who likes baseball" is the worst kind of argument. Rah Rah. Go women. Dibble's a troglodyte, but holding a self-esteem-boosting pity party isn't going to change anything.

One last one: Best point I saw raised... the irony of this whole situation is that Dibster was ripping on some broads for not paying attention to the game... and in the process of doing so he... well... wasn't paying attention to the goddamn game.


  • I'm not much of a Dibble fan but I thought his comments were funny. Then again, some of my best friends are troglodytes.

  • Yeah, like you've never moderated and deleted comments on this blog that were critical of you. Just like you'll delete this comment as soon as you see it.

  • We also loved the half-assed non-apology for your West Virginia slur that you never got around to issuing either here or on

  • There was one; you must've missed it.

  • Fine. Provide a link.

  • Google for it. one was on we love dc. other was on can't remember the name... word girl? something like that. those two were widely read and commented, and had interesting and respectful posts, so my response went there.

  • The West Virginia article was hilarious, by the way. Some people just have their mobile homes shoved too far up their arses.

  • You're really grasping at straws here Needham. I mean Rob Dibble? At this point? Love him or hate him, in the grand scheme of things who gives a fuck?

    I mean if you're going to keep writing this blog constantly bitching about the Nats, at least make it funny. Most of your postings nowadays just come across as needlessly angry and bitter.

    Just my two cents.

  • Funny, I originally came across your offensive West Virginia remarks via Google. Yes, I was offended well after the fact. And Google did not reveal any apology from you. Ergo, I am still offended.

  • Man, Chris, you have more haters than Dibble. This post is great as are the photo captions. Now, will the Lenrer's fire Dibble/Carp? I sure hope so.

  • Glad to see that somebody else noticed Dibble wasn't talking about baseball either. People were too upset.

  • Fire Dibble? No way. He's unpredictable, which makes each game interesting. And Bob's OK with me too. Anyway, Rob apologized. Who the F are you to not accept an apology? Chris, you are no longer any fun to read, and worse, your writing has become boring. Which is something that I can't say about Rob Dibble.

  • "Who the F are you to not accept an apology?"

    Wait a minute. Ezcept for when he's generalizing an entire region with stale, tired and unfunny jokes, and looking at every miniscule little thing the Nationals franchise does as bad, Chris is the arbiter of taste.

  • Anyone who was offended by Dibble's observations during that game would probably die of apoplexy if they came across an old Don Rickles video.

    Geez, relax, people.
