Job Opportunity at the TEAM 1040

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Okay man...we get it: you really want us to believe you're Pratt...and to be frank, it would be cool if you were. I'm obviously highly skeptical, but maybe you could convince all of us by throwing a shout out to Canucks Corner on the air.

I may be extremely gullible, but it's worth a shot :)

I'm not sure you want that 'shout out'...every JOS11 would troll the board...also he is the Fake Pratt...just the way we like him...Pratt has said many times that he can't do anything on air about the board...if it is him or isn't him...

Hey Pratt, you forgot to mention in your requirements...if you are a male..don't bother...if you are female, feel free to include photo....
18 yrs or older...you are a dirty old man !! ;)

I'm the Fake Pratt and I'm just letting everyone know about an opportunity at the TEAM 1040. It is a legitimate opportunity and if anyone is interested, simply apply by emailing at the address I gave above.

As for requirements....hehehe.....yes, I guess if some guys want to waste their time applying go ahead. As for other applicants, please provide a photo (headshot or other) and any statistical data (height, weight and other).

With comments like that, it's obvious why you have to be so clear about not being the "Real" Pratt. (Who's show I called in too the other day for the first time, btw)

Completely agree. Not that I'm David Pratt or anything. For all those who don't think it's a big deal to be in the media and then 'branching out' and writing your own material, have a look at what Dave Chernican from News 1130 went through:

Dave C. wrote:After taking a few days to think about it, I've decided to post a quick reply as to why I eliminated my blog from this great site.

What comprimised my position at work was the person who sent the article to Spectors Rumors. At no time in my blog did I say the Morrison for Seabrook rumor was a hoax. I mentioned that it was a non-rumor. I mentioned that there was nothing to it. But when my boss sees that News 1130's Dave Chernichan apologizes for the hoax, then that not only hurts the credibility of my station, and myself as a journalist. Especially when neither happened.

What bothers me the most is, my blog had nothing to do with News 1130 Sports whatsoever. It was my opinion, but when it's posted on Spectors like that, it doesn't look really good. Second, I have my livelihood to think about here, and after a discussion with my boss, we both decided that it was best if I no longer write the blog, because no matter what, my writings would be associated with News 1130.

Dave Chernichan


So yeah. I'm not Dave Pratt. Period. Just call me Donny Taylor. Chernichan shouldn't have used his real name or put a whole bunch of disclaimers on his blog about how the opinions stated were not those of News 1130.
