Just because you can screenshot when the story was 'written', doesn't mean it was added or picked up by the RSS then. Suggesting FI are rigging MB by artificially delaying a story by a couple of minutes, simply doesn't stand up to any scrutiny for many reasons. I'd bet my port no one at FI was even monitoring it at 23:55 for one.
We can all dig out FI for inconsistency all we like, but we also need to be careful about hysterically calling them out unnecessarily and simply incorrectly. This makes them be even more defensive and uncommunicative, and be even less minded listen to legitimate criticism and solutions.
Similarly @EJ is someone who has put enormous faith into the product, and has ALWAYS seemed to conduct himself in the right and proper way, unlike many, many other accounts I can think of, large and small. It's just wrong to suggest he would care one way or the other about the Divs from a single day (or even a couple); he just wants to make the platform as good as it can be - as I hope we all do, because that is ultimately a win for everyone (apart from Tim Cahill and Peter Crouch perhaps...).
EJ may have different ideas to myself of how to 'fix MB', but to suggest FI kept the Grealish stories to placate him is, frankly, ridiculous. I'm pretty sure he said he doesn't even own Grealish, and if he said it I'd also bet that is the case.
We may all be tilted when things go wrong, but it would be to all our benefits to keep a sense of perspective. FI are human, and no doubt feeling the strain of the wider world just as we are too. But they've been getting the big things right in a period when it could have easily gone tits up.
MB has many flaws, we know that, and FI know that. The Grealish call wasn't a great one. We could sit here all day and pick holes in the system. It's frustrating that it hasn't been addressed sooner. We may have differing views how it should operate. But it's still paying out everyday and keeping the platform going at the moment, when so many other things have ground to a halt.
Nothing is going to change overnight (or even at 23:55). So let's do ourselves and FI a favour and keep positive and respectful of everyone.
