Snyder on the job, protecting the brand.

Looks to be a slow day, so I'll see if I can get this exchange between Mike Martin (YTMM) and Mark Snyder (YTMS) to post. If the picture doesn't embed properly, click the link in the first tweet. Yes, another exposé narrowly averted.

Warning - picture contains furry slippers, pizza remains, and the bones of a recent victim.

If anyone doesn't understand the twitters: Mark Snyder is being douchey as usual and asking why MM has his hats on display for the teams he has played or currently plays for on display accept Michigan. MM responds by saying he is wearing the Michigan hat. Snyder subsequently dies a little on the inside.

When I say stupid things to people, people usually (hopefully) forget about it after a while. When you're a reporter being stupid on the internet, it gets its own page in history. Nice work there Mark

(Which, side note: does any other team deal with more of a crack team of saboteurs in their local MSM than Michigan does? I swear it's the Detroit newspapers' dying dream to see Michigan fail or something)

FWIW, Staee fans believe the state media, the Freep included, are very pro-Michigan and refer to it as the "Blue Wall." They insist the latest about MSU being investigated is a diversion tatic created to take the focus off Gibbons.

But they at least acknowledge Rexrode is a shameless Staee fanboy.

Can we have a fanboy like Rexrode cover the team? Snyder seems to resent having to do it and acts like  he's getting root canal whenever he has to associate with anything Michigan.


March 2nd, 2014 at 6:20 PM ^

Exactly. All of the people who cover Michigan don't seem thrilled about it. Why can't we get a Sam Webb equivalent. Nick Baumgardner from mlive is consistently a doom and gloom guy as well.

Mark Snyder and the freep can still suck it.  They got off easy.  Still don't know why Dave Brandon's response wasn't stronger unless he felt he needed the scandal to use against Richrod (this is not a defense of Richrod).

Glad to see Snyder is taking a much-earned break from his top-notch reporting to chime in on Instagram pictures of former UM players.  And they say journalism is dying.
