I've been biting my tongue on this for a while and have finally drawn enough blood to spit this out. I'm sure that I'll hear about it from either the SI staff or, perhaps, even Mr. Mannix himself but that is the point after all. What am I ranting about? Let me explain:

 A few weeks ago, a throwdown challenge was made or accepted by the aforementioned Mr. Mannix regarding Kobe Bryant and the Knicks. Mannix has yet to post anything in reference to the original post. Here's the TD:

Regardless of how weak the TD itself may have been, the least Mannix could have done is acknowledged the opponent with one rebuttal. He has done nothing. Here's another example, once again in relation to the Knicks:

Once again, no retort or post in the comments related to the TD. This TD is actually somewhat better. The least that could be done is to give the opponent a little something, don't you think? I have singled out Chris Mannix, but it really pertains to any and all SI staffers who willingly accept a throwdown from any of us common folk.

So...

Here's the bottom line as I see it: Chris, I know you're busy writing about the NBA for this site and partake in TDs or other conversation as you see fit or as time allows; however, if you're going to accept a challenge presented to you, either participate or forfeit. It's that simple.

So, if you can find the time to scribble something in retort to me, I'd be overwhelmed. Otherwise, considering your lack of response to anything else, I'll not get my hopes up. The ball is in your court now, sir. You going to shoot the rock or stand there and hold it?

 

EDIT: As of today, 14 NOV 07, I have yet to hear anything from the SI Staff, the Moderator, or Mannix himself. Also as of today, he's elected to take another user TD. Here's the link... vote for KDawg on principle alone..
