The review of 'Shooting Bigfoot' by Joe and Jimmy was not a positive one for "Footers" by any stretch of the imagination. Joe is definitely not a fan of Tom Biscardi and I don't think "piece of shit" is a term of endearment. My impression of Biscardi from Joe's perspective is that Tom is an arrogant self promoting prick and I don't think many would disagree with that assessment.
Both film watchers liked Dallas and Wayne but thought their ideas were a bit out there but they were just being Dallas and Wayne. No harm, no foul.
Attention then turns to Rick Dyer, "The Laziest Bigfoot Tracker in the World". Apparently Rick didn't go very far from his tent and still managed to fall down. Dyer was huffing and puffing after about 10 yards and spent most of his time in, or around his tent.
Dyer claimed to have spent a lot of money on WalMart ribs but Joe and Jimmy could only see one rack hung on a tree. Ribs were not everywhere as Rick had stated in numerous Google Hangouts. I believe Joe called Rick a "fat piece of shit" and expressed total disgust with Freezer Boy.
Mastroianni gives his opinion of how he thinks Morgan Matthews sustained his injuries in the film. Joe thinks, because of Matthews proximity to Dyer, Morgan was injured from "kickback" after the rifle was fired. Maybe Morgan was filming behind Rick and the camera was hit or Matthews was directly struck by Rick or the rifle. It's speculation but that was Joe's take on the event.
Joe also mentioned that there may be a squabble or legal issues going on between Dyer and Matthews over ownership of the Tent Video footage and other footage contained in the documentary.
As of this writing, I have not found anything that confirm or refute this.
Overall, Joe and Jimmy said this movie is best watched at home, for free.
JoeShow told me he was going to shed some light on the fellows at FB/FB on his program and he shared a few things with me that I was not able to divulge at the time.
Facebook Find Bigfoot was a huge supporter and promoter of Rick Dyer and his claims so it's only fitting that they be included in this post. FB/FB "authenticated" Rick's video and went so far as giving him an award he didn't deserve. It's down right shameful, but it was their money and their trophy.
The two men gave credence to Dyer's story and in doing so, Rick was able to garner many more supporters than he would have on his own.
This is the photo Joe sent me with this message:
"I did not know/understand consequences in this community (2011) nor care as I do in 2013...<That is very important to me. This was never going to come to light, and was forgotten until the tent vid fiasco."
Here is the video Joe made back in 2011:
Here is the FB/FB video that includes Joe's created image. Yes, Joe made the image himself and sent it to Facebook Find Bigfoot. Skip to the 1:50 mark for the relevant portion of the video.
From their album with a link:
If FB/FB alluded to this image being that of a real Bigfoot, which it isn't, what weight can be given to their "authentication" of Rick Dyer's Bigfoot? How well did they really analyze videos and photos? What makes them experts?
So far Facebook Fin Bigfoot have not stepped up to the plate and offered the Bigfoot community any explanations, statements or retractions. None. They simply faded way. They abandoned their supporters and did a great injustice to the community by remaining silent. Personally, I find their silence insulting, as if people will somehow forget. One thing I have learned over the past few years is the majority of Bigfootery never forgets and I hope it remains that way.
Remember this well when the next "big thing" comes along.
Question everything, and I mean EVERYTHING! What is the reputation of ALL of the people involved? What are their credentials? What makes them an EXPERT? The days of blindly following have to come to an end.
It pains me to no end that this community is full of hoaxers and snake oil peddlers. Only the people within this community can stop it. Quit enabling those who profess to have something yet show no valid evidence. Say no to blobsquatch photos that require red circles and yellow arrows.
