Panic! Horror! Not really. ESPN completely misleads on another Rodriguez topic

Submitted by Clarence Beeks on September 2nd, 2009 at 11:13 PM

Headline: Rodriguez linked with banned booster

Content: Not in any way that the headline would make you think. Apparently Rodriguez has been sued here in South Carolina because of a land deal gone bad. Unfortunately his partner in the deal was a Clemson booster who has run afoul of the NCAA. Does ESPN report it that way? No, of course not. Absurdity.

Sorry if this had been posted previously, but I didn't see it.

No worries here. I actually gave you a +1 on another thread mainly because of your username. I have a good friend named Matt who is indeed a psycho.

Here's another just to show you some goodwill.

I just think since we're being attacked by the Newspaper That Must Not Be Named, ESPN, and... the world, we should support each other. [That sounded a little fruity. Sorry about that. I'm drinking some good beer tonight!]

...simply shocking.

I used to be fairly indifferent toward ESPN, but my hatred grows with each passing day. Basically, my hatred is growing for most big media outlets these days (not just because of this story). It's not about news as much as it's about money. Shameful, really.

Dave Birkett, who has been reasonable so far, ran this "story" yesterday at It would have been really nice to come home from work one day this week without something negative about RR splashed all over their website.

I asked them why they remove posts for being OT and but this. I also asked what a Clemson booster has to do with UM or their football team.

I wish the public flogging of RR would stop.

I wouldnt say the paper but the fans in DC will heckle you if you're a skins fan. For some reason they love the Cowboys in Washington DC. When I lived there I never understood how that city could be split so 50/50...theyre not even close geographically.
