Captain J in Some Hot Water

On After the Catch Last night Captain J made some rather disparaging Comments about the beauty of Alaskan Women.
When he is up here he seems to have no problem with them. So I am just going to open up the blog today to any and all who would like to "express" their "Feelings" towards Captain J.
I am Switzerland however in this situtation. I am just proving a place where people can vent their opinions.
Have at it people!!

Captain John. You are NOT the greatest looking man on earth. In fact you are a drunk. I would not touch you with a ten foot pole.
You are scum. The women in Dutch are good looking when you are sober.

Nebraska Outback said...

Thanks for the opportunity to voice our opinion, CB. The comment was definitely in questionable taste. I'm sure the guys love their mothers, sisters, wives, girlfriends and daughters, but this isn't the first time there's been an indication that their attitude toward women in general is somewhat disrespectful.

In their defense, though, I've heard some wild stories about the behavior of women toward them during their public appearances.

Reading said...

maybe the problem is that the women in Alaska are discriminating and have taste...and since they don't worship at the altar of Capt J, he makes disparraging comments about the women of Alaska....btw I've seen the ladies that CB surrounds himself with, if my husband were single he would fortunate to have a date with any one of them...

I'm not ugly! Not the most gorgeous either of course, but Jonathon you are gross! That hair, those clothes, THOSE boots, that laugh!!! Women in Unalaska are real and hearty...umm you can't make it there without being tough. YOU freaking wimps run away to the airplanes as soon as you can to "escape" Unalaska! The 80s are over get a new look.
Ohh yeah I CAN talk...my husband is a captain of a bigger boat out there :)

Capt J is a douche...nuff said.

alaskagal98 said...

Wow CD .. feel free to let it all out next time! LOL As for me, I could care less what Capt J thinks of Alaskan women. As for this Alaskan woman, I have my boatin' guy and my kids and I have a good life. Whether or not Capt J thinks I'm attractive or not doesn't mean jack poop!! I will say this .. I highly doubt he'll be getting ANY Alaskan tail between the dock and the airport anytime soon! So, suck on that JH!!! hahaha

alaskagal98 said...

Oh, and BTW, I just wanna point out that I didn't see the episode last night so I reserve the right to be outraged later if I see it!! :-)

Wednesday said...

I honestly enjoy reading your blog a lot more than I enjoy watching DC this season. I didn't even bother watching ATC and now I'm glad I didn't!

Kim said...

Im not thinking too highly of that piece of shit captain John. First him and Andy scream and yell at the guys for not taking weights. well um...first off dumbass arent you two captains? who did you assign to do this extremely important job before you took off to get plastered? Oh wait apparently you were too busy running to the ugly ass Unalaskan women to get your dingalings wet that you forgot to assign someone. Oh and I would never allow my hubby or brothers to travel up that way...I want them to come back unmarried or in my husbands case without an extra girlfriend! CD you are beautiful...as are the other Unalaska women. Dont listen to that piece of crap.

Kim said...

Oh and btw C. John. Its 2009. Not 1981. get a new look! youre not funny and your laugh is stupid. You sound like a retard on crack.

Dani said...

Well we (UK) aint seen anything that has been going on, so i have no idea what it was he actually said but going by many of your comments it was not a nice one! What he said is only one persons opinion, so i wouldnt take much notice of him.

inkprincess said...

Eh, I could care less what he said. I laughed, but then again i'm not Alaskan. He's my fave captain, and will remain to be.

mamawas said...

blew it SHALLOW John.

I love the beautiful ladies who write our Alaskan blogs.

Whores come in male and female varieties.

Enough said.
Donna

cookie dough said...

Thanks Kim, I was going to say the same thing! I remembered that while running to the store...2 captains! Ultimately it's all on them, they said that enough times on ATC-- Most boats only have 1..they have to split the duties and they still f up?

Sooo...AKGQ poke him in the eye next time you see him, k?

Reading said...

don't poke him in the eye...kick him in the groin and tell him it's a gift from all the beautiful women in Alaska...

cookie dough said...

LOL yeah, but AKGQ knows I really mean that! She is a professional "eye-poker!"

Kim said...

I think Sig would freak out if he had another captain on the boat. He would be able to get twice as much fishing and work done in the same amount of time. Those poor boys would be so overworked lol. My thought is this...Andy works the deck during Kings, John works that chair during Opies. Wouldn't it be more constructive for John to go on deck and actually earn his paycheck? Im going to assume hes pulling a deckhand check even though he almost never goes out.

Careful with kicking him in the nads...they are small and hard to find. You might hurt your foot cuz of his bony butt.

Frieda said...

The comment John said is as old as John's look, and was not funny back when it was first said. John is implying that women look better in Alaska because they are so outnumbered. In my opinion it is a chauvanistic now as it was in the 70's. John needs to remember that when he leaves the boat he is no longer a god and that his words have consequences. It seems to me that the other men of Alaska appreciate all women and have evolved past the cro magnon stage in which John seems to be stuck.

Frieda said...

Note to John's 93 year old Grandmother from a 63 year old Aunt: Time to take John's butt behind the woodshed and teach him a little old fashioned respect for women. Love, Aunt Frieda

Kim said...

wow go Frieda. Think she said it best with the ass whooping behind the shed.

Anonymous said...

I think they just need to remember they are no one - keep alienating the fans (the majority of which are women) and lets see how long you stay on the show- this isnt the first time he's made a comment- i believe he also said something about his daughter in law once - go figure can't imagine why he's still single

Anonymous said...

John is a drunken piece of shit with bad hair. And Nebraska Outback: just for the record... It's not Alaska women falling all over him in the bars in Dutch Harbor. We are more trying to stay out of the way when he's falling over drunk. But you are right- there have been about two or three "fans" that have flown all the way out here to try to get a piece of the Captain, but they weren't Alaska women.

Bloviating Zeppelin said...

Kim has made the most salient observation here, in my opinion. I've personally observed that, when John is Captain for Kings, Andy is working his ass off on the deck. When Andy is chairing for Opilio, John is sitting in the wheelhouse.

To me, it is THAT observation that bespeaks VOLUMES about those two men, and should be all you need to know.

Frieda said...

Blo, far be it from me to take up for John, but I think the reason he is not on the deck during Opies is physical. His body is so beaten up(hopefully by women) that he cant handle the combination of cold and work. They pulled neil from the deck last year for physical reasons. I just feel for the actual working crew, unless the money divy allows for the two not working the deck.

Margrita said...

I found Captain
John's insult very dated Alaskan women are real, not the silicon enhanced, tummy tuck, spray tan, bleached bimbos that were found in 1980's rock videos. A lot of women prefer to be real to the bimbos Hey news flash Capt. John not only can women vote but also do just about any job, wake up this is 2009 not the 1800's .

Anonymous said...

I wonder if he'll view women differently when he realizes how much power we can yield. I think we should swamp Discovery Channel, and demand an apology. I feel certain when it comes to money, he'll change his tune.

Kim said...

If someone can figure out who to write to...Id give them a piece of my mind. from creative editing to this crap...they would seriously have their ears singed.

Frieda...if hes too "sore" to work the deck...he should be on the dock. He has gone out and done a little deckwork. I didnt see him moaning and groaning about it then. I think its a bit of laziness on his part. Why work when you can collect the same paycheck riding the chair.

Reading said...

If he will make a comment like that in public on a tv show it makes you wonder what he says when people aren;t listening....

Frieda said...

I would hope that he and Neil take the relief watch so that the deck crew does not have to. I also imagine that Neil cooks...I am sure they contribute, just in different and less difficult ways. And yes, I am having trouble believing that I am rationalising for them. Just trying to be more fair to them than they are to their fans and crew.

Anonymous said...

A revolt? Lets do it! Should be easy enough to find out who at Discovery to write to.

Anonymous said...

I vote for CB to be our leader! He would be so great! He knows what to say, and how to say it, and he could rally everyone together. There are comments on all the DC message boards I've checked. Come on CB time to get off the fence, and come to the defense of your sisters! UNITE ALL YOU BEAUTIFUL WOMEN!

Anonymous said...

Was it perhaps in the best interest of the show to allow Jon's opinion to slide through the editing process? They will go a long way to get their ratings up, especially if they know exactly which buttons to push.

Reading said...

I am sure they thought it was in the shows best interest..but it doesnt change the fact that he said it...just like Andy made the comment about Russ...they aren't newbies to being filmed they know the cameras are there...I think it is more playing to the cameras

Kim said...

I don't think they can blame editing on Johns comment this time. he said it and there was no cut before or after. He is an ass. Granted they take wheel watch. But Neal is now off the deck, and does the cooking. He can do spells on the wheel...John I do not think does anything constructive on deck, galley or wheelhouse.

Frieda said...

Here is the Deadliest Catch PR guy at Discovery: Joshua_Weinberg@discovery.com

His phone number is listed at press.discovery.com . Click on the Deadliest Catch photo to get to the show's section, the main feature on the first page is shark week, don't get confused and write the shark week people...even if John is a shark.

Reading said...

is asshole shark a newly discovered species of shark???

Leigh said...

OMG!! you guys are harsh! I agree with inkprincess. He's still my favorite captain. I laughed. I didn't think he was singling out women from any particular place as much as implying when you're drunk the not so good looking women always look better than when you are sober.

Reading said...

you actually think that is better...

Frieda said...

It says a lot that his criteria for picking a woman is how she looks not how she thinks. That being said, I am sure there are a lot of women who would also be wearing beer goggles as well as thinking thru them.

Anonymous said...

Leigh - Do you really think what he said was okay? Women have it hard as it is. I'm not from Alaska, but found the remark insulting to all women everywhere, and I'll be damned if I'll let some middle aged wanna be rock star insult me on national television.

MaryC said...

Thanks CB! If John knows what's good for him, he will crawl back under the Crown Royal rock that he calls home. So far all the Alaskan women I've seen in CB's pictures and all the blogs are all beautiful! Doesn't John have a girlfriend in Anchorage? I wonder if she's Alaskan........

Anonymous said...

Let's send CD husband Captain T to whip his butt while CB photographs it for his next blog post.

Kim said...

He is dangerously close to being my least favorite captain. He is no longer in my top 5 or even top 10 favorites. His boat has also dropped down to next to my least favorite boat. I think he plays to much to the camera and speaks before his brain even sparks to think. God gave men two heads and one brain...he uses the smaller head. I guess its got some beer goggles. I do not think John is gonna be getting a whole lot of action up in DH or Akutan any time soon. Unless crazed fans fly in.

Anonymous said...

Wow you guys are blowing this way out of proportion. Who cares what he said? Do you think he's the first to make a remark like that? Do you think the guys on the other boats haven't said similar things? I have PERSONALLY heard NW and CM crew members make similar remarks, they just were'nt dumb enough to say it on camera. I think many of you are being too sensitive about the issue. Get over yourselves, Johnathan is what he is and like it or not he's still very popular. And for the record, no he's not my favorite or my second or my third but I don't get my panties in a bunch every time someone says something disrespectful.

As for blowing up the PR guys email at Disco, it has the potential for back firing so I would be careful. If they pull the TB for that remark, what next? Pull the show because of the bad language?

Kim said...

Check out johns so called apology on his Myspace profile. What a jerk

Anonymous said...

Just read his apology, he really is stuck on stupid.

Anonymous said...

He was just having a few and what?? sorry I don't have my space but growing up I was always told drunks and kids tell the truth about how they feel and if he was having a few and was a little tipsy I guess he was telling the truth, How did the other capt react when he said that I didn't notice.

Anonymous said...

I hope I'm working the next time he has an outbreak, and needs a script for Valtrex. I'll show him how ugly I can be.

Kim said...

Capt. Johnathanto anyone offended by my alaska girl remark on after the catch lighten up it was a guy table thing.I'm def not the brad or the tom!! I was just havin a few and

Anonymous said...

It's not just guys around the table when it's ON FUCKING TV ASSHOLE!!!

Leigh said...

yea I think it was okay. I've heard the same things out of guys mouths that aren't on National TV before. He doesn't owe us an apology or explanation. He was drinking. He made a comment. big deal. Now I'm off to read the stuff on the other boards. I can't belive how huge this has become.

Reading said...

The fact that he is willing to blame his comment on drinking is even worse, if he can't control what he says when he is drinking maybe he shouldn't drink. As far as the guys around the table comment, if he were sitting around with his crew in a bar making comments like that and someone overheard him I wouldn't like it but unless I heard it myself I would only have someone else's word, he was on TV...what an idiot...

CB'S LITTLE SIS said...

Cheers to CD and Kim! You said it! So if that is what he thinks about Alaskan women? Wait til he meets up with a bitch from Kersey, PA!!!

Anonymous said...

Wow, looks like I'm in the minority here. I think too much has been made about Capt Jon's comment.

Yeah, it was childish and stupid. But really, all it got from me was an eyeroll. Don't think it's worth all the venom that has been posted.

What's interesting is, people are offended by Capt Jon's comment/joke because it insults a woman's physical appearance, yet the FIRST thing that's thrown back his way are insults to his physical appearance.

Looks like folks here have something in common with Capt Jon.

Anonymous said...

When I first heard John say that, I thought "So he's saying the women there wouldn't be considered attractive somewhere else... but yet he probably hooks up with any of them who are willing?" All I think his comment did was make him look like a desperate old guy who can't get "attractive" women.

Surely no one is basing their self esteem on what he is saying!! I'm sure Unalaska is like everywhere else on earth... everyone looks different and who is considered "attractive" is a matter of inner beauty and personal taste (and John doesn't seem to have a lot of either.)

Ranee said...

Lets give Captain John some leeway here after all he may think Jennifer Anniston is ugly too. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. As long an the Alaskan women think of themselves as beautiful thats all that matters. After all isn't Sarah Palin an Alaskan woman and she isn't ugly by any means.

Helen said...

Thanks CB for providing the venue with which to vent. Next time, filet mignon and wine as well PLEASE... lol

My thought is that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. There is inner beauty, outer beauty, and limitless combinations of both in between. It could be debated for centuries.

I kind of chuckled after hearing John's statement but didn't personalize it as a slur against women from anywhere. I believe I understand the intent of the quip. It just didn't work out. We have all done that. "Open mouth, insert foot..." Anyone ever done that before? Probably more times than we'd all like to remember. How many times have we all thought, "Mannnnnn, that came out all wrong, it's not what I was trying to say!"

I lived in Alaska for about five years but not nearly as far north. Alaska IS a totally different environment, almost like a little country all to itsself. In many ways they have their own rules and ways of doing things.

I remember a t-shirt I used to wear. It is probably still for sale there even now. It said, "Alaska Men - the odds are good but the goods are odd!" It meant the ratio of men to women in Alaska is high. The men, however, are known in general for being a bit odd. Many work in lumber or fishing and are gone for long periods of time. When they return they have a lot of money and just want to party. A good deal are not relationship material for that reason and they choose to stay single.

I'm just putting it out there that nobody is perfect. Shit happens and this too shall pass.

As I read through the blog people start slinging derogatory remarks back. We are allowed to voice our thoughts. It is one of the great things about living in this country. I consider that for all the women who don't like John's cowboy boots, little "heheheheheh" laugh, style of doin' the crab jig" or the amount of alcohol he consumes, there are quite possibly the same amount or more who do.

Whether Alaskan women, or women from anywhere else are beautiful or ugly is up for debate on numerous levels (I feel the same goes for the men). Beauty is, after all, "In the eye of the beholder".

Carlisleboy said...

I think we are going to end it with The fabulous Helen's Comments.

Again, Switzerland here, although I caution against a bombardment of Discovery Channel. Trust me they are hearing it enough!

When I have met John he seemed like a good guy, and I know he has had a Girlfried in Dutch that is just drop dead beautiful. Personaly I found what he said distasteful, but you should hear some of the things I say when toasted!

A real apology would be better from him though. Have you learned NOTHING from the Slapdown of David Letterman by Our Fabulous Governor?
Just apologize, and move on.
Alaskans are a forgiving people John, Just remember you are going to have to by a LOT of rounds though....
