ESPN just ruined their San Francisco 49ers blog for me

I can't believe they hired Bill Williamson as their 49er reporter! what the heck.

Of all the division bloggers they had, this guy was the absolute worst covering the AFC West. He can't spell, can't write, didn't post information quickly, can't provide perspective, usually had fewest posts, had the most simplistic info and was generally the weakest link in the chain. It is mind boggling that they have handed him the most interesting team in the league.

Trust me when I tell you: this was the worst possible hire of all the bloggers they have on their staff. If you ever have time and inclination, go read his chat archive and count the number of linguistic mistakes he makes that would sap trust from a journalist/reporter/writer/blogger. His answers are short and have little value. Minutes would go by without him responding to a chat message, seriously.

Oh thank god for Niners Nation, Fooch & rest of the crew. Without you all, I'd be going completely crazy.

P.S. since this post may give the impression that I am attacking Bill Williamson, I am sure there will be some sympathetic posters who will rally to his cause. Just trust me if you can, this is a total and utter misfire by ESPN. I am not sure if there is new management team on their NFL site, but they have been making curiously odd decisions with their NFL coverage.
