Granted, I always shop at REI, or Mountain Supply, for outdoor gear; or a LBS for biking gear; but I always enjoyed Joe's (formerly G.I. Joe's, for those who don't know). Now that they've gone under, there is a brand new Dick's sporting goods in its stead.

Your thoughts? I thing Dick's can suck Joe's d**k

It can barely carry Joe's torch, let alone jock strap. It's weak. The selection is not nearly as strong. The clothing section pales in comparison; and they commit much more space to hunting/fishing than Joe's. Nothing wrong with hunting/fishing, but there are many other outlets for that. And too much attention to baseball/basketball, etc. Isn't that what Big 5 is for?

Anyone else concur?

Thanks for listening to my rant.
