Yep and thats EXACTLY why these parasite journalists do what they do. People mostly ignore local news these days. Especially newspapers. So....desperate for eyes....they resort to finding 1 of the 3 things that all locals WILL look at: Our sports, our cops and our politicians. They will reach for ANYTHING. Any angle or rumor or allegation...true or not...about these 3 groups because its about the only thing people will pay them any attention for.

Now...yes, sometimes there is an athlete or cop or politician that does something flat out wrong and it deserves to be covered. That accounts for like 1 out of every 50 allegations the newspaper makes.

But anyway. When the journalists at The State, the Post & Courier and the Greenville News stop snorting powder and chasing 18 year old College of Charlesron girls at South of Broad cocktail parties in Charleson on weekends (their wives think they're here covering the North Charleston cop or Dylan Roof story) then maybe I wont be so hard on them. But hey....thats just what witnessss tell me.

True. And Mission Accomplished. The State probably banked a 15%+ jump in clicks due to "alleging" that 2 of USCs top 3 players were involved in a big fight at a bar.

I'm no a State apologist. So, I can confidently say that I'm ok with the way they simply reported what the police report said.

Also, methinks you are a bit too pumped up about this subject.

But I vote to lock this sucker down.

Maybe we should just request Gamecock advertisers to #BoycotTheState and pull advertising refuse to accept the States Gamecock page etc.

Well, Coach Muschamp let the Snake know how he feels about them...

http://southcarolina.247sports.com/A...-Deeb-52672883

A key point for me was when he said: "The investigating officer actually commended Skai for his behavior in the bar"

Where are all those people who were bashing our players a week ago?

He even mentioned that the police told the state not to run the paper because it was just one persons account of what happened

Yeah I think that happened once the conversation devolved into "I'm right, and you're wrong for this list of BS reasons I'm about to make up."

Unfortunately that's about how most of the discussions go around here these days.

Simply reported? Do they run a front page story every time they simply get a police report? Give me a break

Thread has run it's course ......... Time to lock it.

Glad it turned out to be nothing more than a hungry reporter looking for a
a story and that the players were cleared.
