That article coming from that particular author is rich.

I'm surprised lame ass reporters can get inside the head and trigger all-pro athletes. I fully expect Belicheat & NE to utilize russian bots to troll opponents on Twitter this year.

Awesome...I don’t doubt it.

That’s called poisoning the well there B2B.

What was actually wrong about the article?

What you and me as fans likely don't consider is that these "all-Pro athletes" deal with these clowns on a daily basis once camps start all the way through the season into the off season and even more when players are leading their private lives. I don't have any compassion for these vultures that look for any and every excuse to be the first assclown to report something for the insta-fame they so desire. How about just reporting the news instead of trying to manufacture it for once. And learn your fucking boundaries as human beings. Your job is reporting the news. Not infiltrating a person's private life and exposing it for fame and 15 minutes. /rant

All Bouchette said was AB walked off the field with a limp. What was wrong with that?

The reporter released the video of the Jags’ brawl. What was wrong with that?

I’m sure a reporter dodn’t tell Le’Veon Bell or whoever it was to miss a walkthrough or go heckle the Jags’ locker room last year. I suppose you could “blame” Facebook or whoever it was that paid AB to stream live from the locker room after the KC game.

But essentially all DK said was the tone our guys have with the media comes from the top. What’s wrong with saying that, and suggesting that it could stop at any time if the guys at the top would make it clear it ought to stop?

And finally, it comes with the territory. You want fame and attention?

Then you have to learn to deal with all types of attention.

Anyhow I agree it’s nowhere close to the main reason this team hasn’t won a Super Bowl yet...but it sure doesn’t help.

That's an ad hominem

Would it matter if Charles Manson wrote it? His hypothesis is well supported and well written, so what exactly do you disagree with?

DK crying about how the media is treated is hilarious because he is notoriously a dickhead who mistreats nearly everyone he works with.

I've experienced it personally.

I can see this.

I have belonged to his website for a while and I have learned to dislike the guy. Kind of an arrogant fuck.

I merely pointed out the irony of DK writing an article about people who get mistreated by those they work with. Was neither an ad hominem nor poisoning the well. I said nothing about the content, although if you want to know, I think his premise is bullshit.

Which outlet did you work for?

That's not a loaded question, I'm honestly curious.

I covered the Steelers through Yahoo.
