Adam Rittenberg continues the insane amount of unethical one-liners and headlines today with this beauty:
“Team chemistry is a question mark after current players spoke publicly about possible NCAA rule violations involving time limits, but the Wolverines need a united effort Saturday.”
(You can read the full story here: http://espn.go.com/blog/bigten/post/_/id/3087/what-to-watch-in-the-big-t...)
Someone…anyone…tell me what’s wrong with that sentence?
NO current players spoke publicly about possible NCAA rule violations! Two current players spoke about an average day in the RR program in the context of a friendly discussion with NO knowledge it was being used to support an article on rule violations. In addition, the players were not asked to distinguish between required hours and voluntary hours in the description of their day.
How in the hell can ESPN continue to allow such simple facts to be overlooked? (Not to mention the booster headline that made me consider blocking ESPN from my firefox)
I sent Adam a respectful message asking him to be more clear in the future when doing his job.
