That's what I said.

Right. I said this is not their specialty, what gained them notoriety.

Bad analogy. They have credibility in another area, but they jeopardize it by doing something (rather poorly) in another area. This is compounded by them saying "don't take them seriously" when they are wrong, but then getting REALLY SNARKY and rubbing it in when they are correct, like in 2007 when they predicted the Sox would be bad but had all the reasons completely wrong.
