Default ALL DISCUSSION ABOUT THE INCIDENT AT 5 POINTS:

Please keep opinions and comments related to THE STATE, and the reporters and
how the incident is being handled by the School and the Coaching Staff. The players
have gone through enough and have been Cleared of All Charges.

(For Your Review)

Glad to see Coach stand by his players. Knowing that your head coach will step up and go to bat for you is huge to young players.

He had every right to say what he said, and he was dead on with those comments too. I think this was a shot again at The Failing State for a lack of apology or retraction. They need to be held accountable, and I think the school should continue to call them out for as long as they refuse to do so.

While I'm not a fan of The State paper, I don't have a problem with them reporting the story. I do with the guy who worked at the bar and identified the players. The State was just reporting that a local employee of an establishment said football players were involved in an altercation. The employee of the bar needs to issue an apology to the football players and be fired from his job.

Based on new info, being that the police told the state there was no need to run the story, I have to take away a lot of the benefit of the doubt I was giving them in the other thread. State should apologize.

I would really like to know who it was that actually said that Deebo and Moore were present at the bar. Then I would like to know why it was stated that they were there.

Dude at the bar should be held accountable to giving the wrong names, not fired, but prosecuted. State newspaper and the reporter who wrote that should be held accountable or issue an apology, and the reporter should be fired.

I fall under this umbrella.

It's not like The State fabricated a completely false story. There was a police report after all.

I always think there should be more importance on the reader not believing everything they read.

Falling all over yourself to crucify The State seems a bit harsh to me.

However, I love what Boom said. His position as the HC gives him the bully pulpit and I think he used it in the right way.

But herein lies the problem with the media today. You can find a statement from someone, with ease, that suits virtually any agenda that you wish to pursue and therefore publish it as "somebody else's statement". Your theory absolves all of them from any sense of ethics. I have a problem with that.

I just expect more of myself than to believe everything I read.


And this is not a "media today" problem. This has to do with a lot of sheeple that can't think for themselves...which has been going on forever.

Tell that to the guys who were falsely accused of a crime they had nothing to do with. What a load. I can promise you they will have to discuss this when they are going through the draft process. Does 'The State' rush to publish every police report they get on the front page?
