Still, a great champ match in my opinion, despite the harsh criticism that was received. I thought all came consistently well and consistently better than most everyone who delivered a verse the same week. I also thought there were a lot of fresh concepts and clever disses throughout the match. Though most felt that I wasn’t worth the mention, I’m proud of my 30 minute verse and I can also say that Muff’s just won the most impressive title match in a while. But I’ll save the rest of my opinions for an upcoming article paying respects to the new champion. In other news, you all may know that I’ve been catching flack lately for the league and how I run it. Muff has already admitted to overreacting 2 weeks ago when I supposedly “hid” my verse to gain some fictitious unfair advantage. Many sided with the Champ, but later wrote punchlines directed towards him which I found ironic. Also, I believe at least two matches saw verses posted second with more lines than the first. For the life of me, I can not figure this league out and thus have chosen to cease trying. I only wish that we can grow and mature together and destroy the pettiness that surrounds and deteriorates the league’s morale. Moving on, I say the above to mention that I have only decided to author this magazine due to the recent signs of appreciation from members of the past who have been watching and have recently extended compliments in hookups. This has pleased me and therefore I have decided to continue on for as long as I can in writing these magazines. At the same time, I am desperately looking for a replacement only in writing The Herald due to upcoming finals and other events. Well, looking back, it was a pretty productive week despite the confusion and unfortunate news. Most of those who no-showed were expected to in being so low in the rankings. However, I was extremely disappointed in Area51, but its result has produced a match that I am eager to read. With my not being a sitehopper of any sort, or at least in recent years, I have failed to witness a Deon/Muff match. My bets are that Muffy retains his title. In all honesty, it just seems as though people favor him over others and Deon is less favored than most good writers in the league when it comes to voting turnouts. At this time I would like to extend a warm invitation to those who disagree with the way I write my magazines, or to those who may disagree with my views or the way I express my opinions, or simply to those whom may just want to help out and have a sincere concern for the future of this league. Please feel free to email me at usadesigns1 @ gmail. I am always open to suggestions and help from those who are truly interested.
