Yoda, et-tu, brutus?
This thread is not about Dukes. This thread is about the growing malignancy known as the Tampa media and the resultant financial harm done to the Tampa Bay Baseball franchise.
It's about time somebody, somewhere, called these folks to task (since they are so fond of popping off irresponsibly about certain players).
If left unchecked, the media, left to themselves, may wrongly target any one of us in future opines. Should that occasion happen to you, Yoda, perhaps your view of this situation would rise to the level of concern that it should be now. There are real consequences to irresponsible journalism, consequences that should raise eyebrows now.
Yeah but then again I would never go on record to threaten to kill someone or her kids either.
Yoda, if you have the time, take a gander at the st. pete times today. Tried and convicted by the writers, without sensibly putting the matter, as a whole, together. Dukes is now the official poster child of spousal abuse.
This is not the first time the Tampa media has gotten it wrong. Until a real, well publicized boycott of advertising revenues is implemented, these folks will continue to run with what sells rather than honest reporting. Last year's circus was relentless.
The bottom line is a smaller bottom line to ownership if they continue to cower to biased reporting. And again, this could happen to any one of us.
So what you are saying is that it is the media's fault that Dukes has a history of off the field problems? It is the media's fault that Dukes threatened to kill someone and he children? I guess it is also the media's fault that Young threw a bat at an ump and was caught on camera.
