Law of the Game's Mark Methenitis to Debate Jack Thompson

April 2, 2009 -

What are the odds of having two Jack Thompson debate stories in a single day?

That's how today, played out, though.

Just after GamePolitics posted about tonight's Thompson-Gerard Jones debate, Law of the Game blogger - and practicing attorney - Mark Methenitis e-mailed to say that he will be debating Thompson at SGC 09 on July 4th. Mark believes that he is the first attorney to debate Thompson on video game issues.

The Screw Attack website adds that there will be more just the Thompson-Methenitis ten-rounder:

In addition to the debate, Thompson will also participate in a special pre-screened question and answer panel where attendees will have the opportunity to pick the brain of one of gaming’s most notorious critics.

I still remembered how he backed out of the debate with Tom Buscaglia, citing what he interpreted as some insulting remarks he made.

 Hopefully they won't call him a "Lawyer" and give him the proper title of Disbarred lawyer, or disgraced lawyer, or hell, just plain Jack Thomson, that name is an insult on it's own.

No matter how many debates this guy is in, he has already lost the real debate in court.

He'll back out of it for whaever reason...

Re: Law of the Game's Mark Methenitis to Debate Jack ...

Didn't Thompson already debate attorney Sheila Tuma on video game issues? And lose?

I see what you did there.

I'm still waiting to see if Soulja Bitch will accept the challenge by the ScrewAttack guys at SGC.

When Jack Thompson runs his mouth, does anyone really care what he has to say anymore?

Re: Law of the Game's Mark Methenitis to Debate Jack ...

pre-screened by whom?

 

BTW, Dennis, it's not "Screw Attack" it's "ScrewAttack" (no space).

I wouldn’t be surprised if Jack finds a way to Welch out on this one. One thing we know about Jack is he never goes up against an opponent who is just as, if not more qualified to speak on legal matters as he is. I still remembered how he backed out of the debate with Tom Buscaglia, citing what he interpreted as some insulting remarks he made. And we all know how he backed out  of the PAX appearance as well. And even if it was over concerns over his safety, remember he was the one who shot his mouth off about the whole thing in the first place.
 
If he does deign to show up, though and he submits to the Q&A, I wouldn’t expect much in the way of enlightening answers from him. You know it’s going to be a variation of one of the following three answers. He’ll either…
 
  1. Cite brain scan studies and make continuous references to various school shooting including Paducha, Columbine, Erfurt, V-Tech, etc. (And probably bring up his 60 Minutes appearance for good measure).
 
  1. Say how all his actions have been motivated by his religious faith.
 
  1. Say, “I’m not going to tell you.”

Re: Law of the Game's Mark Methenitis to Debate Jack Thompson

The proper response to "I'm not going to tell you" is, "Well, will you tell the audience then?  They're the ones deciding if you're full of **** or not, so you ought to throw them a bone."

Heh heh... Jack... Brain...

Funny stuff, man.

Bet Jack'll cancel this if he loses tonight's debate. As long as no idiots try to pull anything today, that may be the case.

Pick JT's brain huh...well, if it will deflate his ego.

WonderkarpIts Awesome. Bebop and Rocksteady are going to debut this weekend. The new take is Bebop is a thief while Rocksteady is an arms dealer. took 3 seasons to get them on the show.01/28/2015 - 4:41pm
