Reading Comprehension Skill Test

File Under: People are Dumb, sports columnists:

Tim Dahlberg just wrote a column about how much he hates Mark Cuban. It seems to clearly indicate (at least, to me) that he has read both this post and this post on Mark Cuban's blog.

And yet, he doesn't actually seem to have read either of them.

The thing that irritates me most of all is that one of the tactics he's taking is a fairly common, lazy swipe at Cuban:

Does anyone even know who owns the Heat? Someone must sign the paychecks in Miami.

I find it odd that so many sports commentators want to argue that there's something wrong with someone who actually cares about the team they own.

UPDATE: Tim Keown joins the club:

Give Cuban credit for his roundabout promotion of this theory. There's a certain backhanded beauty to it. Think of it this way: How can he lose? If the Mavs win, they've overcome both the Heat and the forces that conspire. If they lose, they never had a chance.

Even assuming he hasn't read this morning's Cuban post, this makes no sense. What is this "roundabout promotion" of which he speaks? Is Cuban buying out other columnists, paying them to spread this theory he publically disavows? Has he hired someone to simulate an army of fans, writing angry blog posts and sending angry emails to ESPN? I would really like to know how Keown justifies his conspiracy theory about Mark Cuban believing in conspiracies.
